Cape Kudu Hotel on Koh Yao Noi

Cape Kudu Hotel Review

Cape Kudu is a small trendy hotel on the beachfront of Koh Yao Noi, a small natural island between Phuket Island and Krabi. The hotel features 5 room types: Deluxe, Deluxe Seaview, Robinson Crusoe, Pool Villas and the amazing Baan Yu Yen Villa, where we spent a long weekend. This is undoubtedly the most unique and comfortable family holiday we have ever spent in Thailand.

A few excellent local restaurants nearby.

Who is it for?

Great for travellers who want to escape to a real Thai island less affected by tourism.

Reasonably priced, but their famous Baan Yu Yen Villa is often booked, so book early.

Baan Yu Yen Villa

Cape Kudu Hotel on Koh Yao Noi

Baan Yu Yen is an amazing two-bedroom villa with two swimming pools on 1,315 sqm. land, facing the sea and the limestone cliffs of Phang Nga. The large kitchen has a central counter and all the cutlery and cooking equipment you need to cook your meals if you want to enjoy cooking with the local seafood, rice and ingredients so unique in Koh Yao Noi.

The villa faces the ocean, and you can walk to a small beach along your front pool, cross a small peaceful road and walk down a few steps of a short wooden staircase. The white villa with a large bright pool with loungers and umbrellas is beautiful, and almost every traveller who walks on that road between the hotel and the beach will stare at your villa and talk to each other with envy.

Once in a while, hornbills will land on your rooftop or in a nearby tree and start their noisy but fun chit-chat. Hornbills are birds known for their distinctive beaks, often with a large, curved casque on the top. It’s quite a sight, especially for kids who might never have seen such big birds with unusual double beaks.

The Pools

There are two pools in the Baan Yu Yen villa. A very large one on the front and a slightly smaller one on the back. While the villa is great for families, the pools are quite deep for young kids, so keep your eyes on the kids when they dip in the warm water.

The Restaurants

Cafe Kantary at Cape Kudu Hotel

There are two restaurants in Cape Kudu. Hornbill is the main restaurant, next to the hotel’s main pool, and Cafe Kantary, a beautiful white pavilion set by the roadside and open to outside guests too.
