Snorkeling Discovery

On the pristine white sand and coral islands of Koh Khai Nok, Koh Khai Nai and Koh Hong, guests can enjoy the unique and beautiful limestone scenery, take a sunbath or submerge under the colorful tropical waters of this incredible beach.

Sea Kayaking

Phang Nga Bay is where some of the most spectacular sites for paddlers can be found. This area contains a secret world of karsts, caves, tunnels and interior lagoons - known locally as 'hongs'. These collapsed caverns eroded by natural forces over millions of years, and can only be entered by a sea canoe or kayak when the tide is just right, reveal a hidden and unique natural environment. An ideal and unique eco-tourist activity, sea canoeing provides the perfect way to explore this fascinating aquatic world. The quiet approach does not intrude on the local wildlife and leaves plenty of time to appreciate the fantastic scenery and natural wonders.

Mangrove Forest Kayaking

Take a discovery trip through a wild mangrove forest on kayak with professional guides. Guests can observe many of the wild mangrove forest creatures and see up close and first hand one of the best natural defenses against beach erosion.

Island Hopping

For privacy and a more personal activity program, guests can charter a speedboat or local long tail boat to shuttle them to world famous destinations such as, Koh Phi Phi, Koh Hong, Phang Nga Bay and James Bond Island.

Mountain Bike Tours

Koh Yao Yai bike tours will have guests cycling through the small market town, past brilliant green rice paddies, majestic mosques, humble fishing villages and through areas of natural jungle that are rich in island flora and fauna. This half day biking tour combines small paved island roads with some low impact, off-road dirt tracks through jungle areas and rubber tree plantations. The distance covered is not excessive and anyone with a reasonable level of fitness will be able to enjoy this special cycling tour.

Island Sightseeing Tours

Discover the slow pace of island life and meet with some friendly locals. Guests will visit a small market town, a rubber plantation, local mosques, fishing villages, a monkey training school and also have a chance to meet the artistic locals who create the ethnic batik paintings.

Nature Walk

Guests can enjoy the natural beauty of Koh Yao with a nature walk along roads winding through villages or on trails that explore the jungle where they may see local flora and fauna and perhaps glimpse some monkeys, squirrels or the numerous birds and the occasional wild boar or small deer.

Tide Table

For sea and beach enjoyment, local tide tables are available in each villa for sea swimming scheduling conveniences. Coral is very abundant in the Andaman Sea and in front of GLOW Elixir Resort. Coral is a protected marine species under international and Thai laws and we take it as our responsibility to protect it, thus we do not remove it or cover it. Swimming only at a high tide is recommended.

Thai Cooking Class

Thai cuisine is known throughout the world, as being one of the most varied and delicious. The flavors are divine and the aromas are enough to make mouths water with anticipation. A Thai cooking course is taught by our highly experienced Thai chef who will teach guests about the ingredients, techniques and all-important balance of flavors that go into making this fresh and healthy food.
