Aloft in the canopy of ancient jungle where it tumbles down to the sea, Eagle’s Nest, Luxury villa Koh Yao Noi is your ultimate tropical island hideaway. To visit Koh Yao Noi is to step back in time. Accessible by boat or helicopter from the bustle of Phuket or Krabi, few places in the modern world have remained so beautifully uncharted.
This is Thailand of old – a place of breathtaking natural beauty, legendary tranquility and welcoming locals. No wonder those in the know take the unforgettable trip through the Phang Nga archipelago of 44 islands in search of this secret paradise of unparalleled beauty.
As you breathe in the peace, often way up overhead, you’ll spot the white heads and lustrous red feathers of sea eagles as they soar above in the clouds.
A Private Oasis
Situated on the top of a hill that tumbles all the way through private gardens to the beach below, Eagle’s Nest is a new, state- of-the-art 4 bedroom villa surrounded by exotic wildlife and benefiting from what is often referred to as ‘the best view in Asia.’ All your creature comforts are catered for High speed-wifi, air conditioning, a sleek kitchen, satellite TV and sound system.
Inspired by 5 star barefoot resort-style living, each ensuite bedroom boasts stunning views across the bay’s limestone islands, deep coral-rich turquoise waters and surrounding jungle.
Ideal for families or groups, the property offers numerous spaces for deep R&R, from its terraces, to the sleek infinity pool, with its sunken sala, large open-plan living room and communal lookout spots that are perfect for a sunset aperitif or morning sunrise yoga session.
Finding themselves on what they found to be the most perfect unspoilt island in Thailand, the Europe-based owners of Eagles Hill were so enchanted by lush scenery and warm, welcoming nature of the local people that they decided to buy the land and embark on a quest to build their own private island retreat.
Knowing they would not be on the island the whole year round, they have now decided to make the experience available for others.
Nestled at the apex of a natural horseshoe sandy bay, Eagle’s Nest is within walking distance of the charming local fisherman’s village of Thakao, where you will find simple but delicious local Thai restaurants, souvenir shops and the pier for private longtail excursions or boats to Krabi.
The island offers a range of restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets, from La Luna for the best pizza; Rice Paddy for the spectacular sunset views, to the 5* refinement of Six Senses Yao Noi – the perfect spot for a special occasion or unforgettable date night under the stars.
Throughout your stay you will be welcomed and looked after by our staff who live onsite, and come from the nearby village of Thakao. They work as a team, and like all the local people here, are very gentle, thoughtful and sweet-natured.
You can fill your days with boat trips, kayaking, bike rides, hikes….. or just kick back by the pool with a glass in hand, take in the view and. just. relax.
Available activities include:
Muay Thai boxing.
Longtail boat day trips to discover Phang Nga bay and its deserted islands – be sure to request a picnic and dine on a beach all to yourselves.

Our emphasis is on local Thai food and home-style living. Life on the island is laid-back and guests are encouraged to feel free to open the fridge and take whatever they fancy.
