The ultimate group vacation experience, yours alone to share with Family and Friends

The ultimate group vacation experience. Yours to share alone with family and friends in the privacy of a private luxury villa. The facilities, staff, and service of a 5-Star resort.

Inspired by the temples of the Northern provinces, ÀNI is a stunning 10 -bedroom beachfront enclave offering a magical Southeast Asian experience. The serene island of Koh Yao Noi in Thailand, provides a true escape and other-worldly views of limestone karst formations.

Many activities and amenities are included in standard rates, allowing you to enjoy as many relaxing, adventurous and cultural experiences as you desire.

When is the best time to visit Ani Villas?

Ultimately, the best time to visit the Koh Yao Noi Island will depend on your preferences. While most travellers choose to visit during the dry season, this is often the most popular and crowded time. Rates for hotels and villas will rise during this popular time as the weather is ideal for exploring the island.

Monsoon season

While the Koh Yao Noi weather makes it the ideal place for a relaxing, tropical holiday, the island does experience seasonal monsoons. There are two main seasons in Koh Yao Noi which revolve around these changes in weather, so it is important to plan your holiday accordingly. Monsoon season occurs mainly between June and November.
During the monsoon or rainy season, the island will likely experience daily rains. This can range from light to torrential downpours, but they should only last a few hours each day. Though the rain is not ideal for a holiday stay, there will likely still be sunshine outside of afternoon hours. For visitors looking to explore the island at its most quiet, the monsoon season can actually be the best time to visit as the beaches will be quiet and clean.

Dry season

Between January and April, Koh Yao Noi experiences its dry season. This is a popular time for visitors as it is considered to be the best time to visit Koh Yao Noi. This is a relatively rain-free season and the resort on Koh Yao Noi will be much more popular.
During these months in the dry season, temperatures are generally over 26 degrees Celsius (or 80 degrees Fahrenheit). This is the best time to explore the island and participate in activities like snorkelling, hiking and cycling.
