Miss Pond runs a tight ship. She is ever smiling, ever helpful. Bungalows are neat and clean and you end up spending hours on the terrace, where she serves delicious food cooked by her mom and where you can spend hours savouring the view. Pond can provide mopeds, and there is also a kajak for some exercise on the water....

This is not the place to stay if you want nightlife and action (indeed, Ko Yao in general doesn't offer much of those), BUT if you want a quiet, nicely designed bungalow then this is the spot! The view really is fabulous, whether from the seaview bungalows or the terrace restaurant. Esmeralda is small and family-run. Breakfast was a substantial...
