IT JUST KEEPS getting better and better for Six Senses Yao Noi Beyond Phuket, which caps a year of new initiatives by being added to the Condé Nast Traveller Gold List as new entry in the magazine’s Best Hotel for Leisure Category. Six Senses Yao Noi has received a number of awards this year.
Condé Nast’s Gold List offers readers a guide to the most exclusive, exotic and amazing hotels in the world as chosen by a team of the magazine’s editors, writers and travel experts and judged on the basis of location, food, rooms, leisure facilities or ambience and design.
New additions to Six Senses Yao Noi Beyond Phuket in 2011 included opening its Hilltop Reserve as a restaurant and pool area to all guests and introducing three new villa types – The House, a large four-bedroom villa ideal for families; The View, a “perfect romantic hideaway; and The Retreat, now the resort’s most exclusive, especially its Ocean Panorama View Villa.
“This all-villa resort on Phang Nga Bay Island of Koh Yao Noi combines luxury and attentive service with environmentally, low-impact design,” said Condé Nast in its announcement.
Manish Puri, general manager of Six Senses Yao Noi Beyond Phuket, thanked the people behind the award. He also noted that the resort’s spa would be introducing a range of new treatments and Puriti Program in 2012.
