A boutique beach retreat on the serene island of Koh Yao Noi.
Cape Kudu Hotel has the kind of effortlessly cool interior design that you find in glossy magazines. It embodies seaside glamour – think white plantation shutters, distressed wood, wicker chairs and a satisfyingly fresh colour palette of teals and white. And it’s not just about looks; the food here is amazing too. Rise for a leisurely breakfast at The Hornbill Restaurant for fruit salads scattered with exotic dragon fruit and crispy roti with Nutella, freshly made at its own colourful station. For lunch and dinner, there’s tantalising Thai and western flavours along with great vegetarian and gluten-free options.
Thanks to its tranquil setting on Koh Yao Noi, the hotel is a perfect hideout for guests looking for pure escapism, and it also ticks the box for adventurous guests with a host of experiences to choose from. Raise your heart rate with a session of Thai boxing, or discover serenity with yoga on the beach. Take in some local culture on a bicycle tour, and a traditional long-tail boat cruise is a must to discover the idyllic surrounding islands scattered across Phang Nga Bay.
Deluxe Rooms follow the hotel’s seaside charm with light colours and a relaxed ambience. Savour a few moments of peace as you look out from your private balcony, and if you want more space to stretch out in, we recommend the stunning Pool Villas which come with their own plunge pool.
