Best boutique hotel i have ever visited, really beautiful and very good service. Very good food,and they have really nice cocktails has well. And koh yao noi is very very beautiful,would surely go back!
We just finished our holidays at Cape Kudu Hotel and we couldn't be more happy about it. The hotel facilities and the staff were absolutely amazing. We have been staying in a deluxe room with an extra bed and it was big enough not to feel cramped, well-appointed and sparkling clean. The breakfast buffet is fantastic, with a great choice between Asian and western tastes and also a special section for who has a gluten intolerance. What really makes the difference is the staff and the management, they all are attentive without being intrusive and ready to help you out in any situation. The restaurant and bar personal are well trained and the cocktails they do are really great. The food quality is outstanding, being able to adjust the spicy level of the Thay dishes to our western delicate palate.
First and foremost, loved the decor of the hotel. It has that beach vibes feel, white turquoise shutters, white furniture, open concept dining area. Absolutely love. Amenities were good.they have almost everything you need. Breakfast was a good spread that catered to international as well as Asian diners. Service was great..special thanks to the F&B manager..such a warm and pleasant lady she was. And the Guest Relations Officer, Tobias..very approachable and pleasant. Overall, it was a good trip for my husband and I. It's on a quite, simple island. It was good to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city life
My stay in Cape Kudu was an amazing experience. The breakfast was outstanding and the staff was always nearby to respond quickly and with professionalism to our requests. The room service was speedy and excellent. I particularly enjoyed the location and the view on the sea and bay especially at sunset. I will highly recommend this place to my friends. The boat trip has been an exciting and dreamful experience.
After reading the reviews we thought this place must be a proper five star resort, I’m afraid to say it is not five star, however it’s not all bad, the location is stunning and the rooms are spotlessly clean and the staff are always happy and smiling, but I have to say the breakfast is not what I expect from a five star luxury boutique hotel, flies are everywhere, the fresh fruit bowls have flies on it and at no point did I see a cover in an attempt to prevent this, finding a salt grinder is a mission, why are they not on all the tables is beyond me, you have to ring a bell to get someone to cook eggs for you and on one occasion I waited 15 minutes for two fried eggs, I have been to many five star hotels and Cape Kudu are missing the basics here, maybe my expectations are higher than some on here but if I pay top dollar then I expect top service and not to be running round looking for salt! The Hornbill and bar areas seem to be too formal,a casual bar area is what is required rather than having to sit at a table every time you want a drink, prices are way too high and if you walk just a few hundred yards down the road the food and drinks are less than half the price and to be honest better value. The pool area also needs attention as the wooden decking is in a poor state of disrepair and wold be condemned anywhere else. All in all it was average and sadly I will not be returning to this resort.
The hotel is almost at beachfront, there's a small road between the hotel and the beach. While the traffic was not heavy, yet when you were trying to lay on the day bed and gazed at the gorgeous view, you would feel a bit off. However, the hotel could make up for this little flaw. The landscape of the hotel was amazing, from the lobby to the hotel room. The staff service was pretty attentive. The breakfast was super impressive. We stayed for 3 nights and they have some new local favorite menu every morning. I felt like I ate 3 times my normal breakfast. The dinner was well served as well. Though the menu was kind of limited for Thai food, they had a great mix of western and Thai. The cafe which is a part of the hotel was also great for both food and dessert.
So glad we found this gem of a hotel for our 10 year wedding anniversary. Originally I was looking at the Phuket area for our trip but stumbled across the island of Koh Yao Noi - And thank goodness I did. The island is very laid back and was absolutely perfect for us to unwind and relax without our kids. The hotel is beautifully styled. Our deluxe seaview room was clean and had all the amenities (including hair dryer, air con, choice of pillows, a beach bag to use, gowns, slippers and a safe). There was also the option of a laundry service if required. The service at the hotel is exceptional, management are always around trying to improve your stay or make suggestions for activities etc. The staff are all so lovely and warm, and they genuinely seem to enjoy working at Cape Kudu (but who wouldn't with that glorious view to look at). We had a few issues with miscommunication mostly with our coffee orders at breakfast (giving us an iced latte instead of a hot latte) but this honestly didn't really bother us as we realise that the language barrier played a role and that possibly we weren't clear with our requests. As previously mentioned the buffet breakfast is excellent with a good variety of fresh and cooked food - stand outs include champagne on weekends, Roti station, fresh made eggs to order, fresh coconut juice straight from the coconut one morning. We ate at the Hornbill restaurant/Long Island Bar on three evenings out of our five night stay mostly out of convenience but also because we were actually pleasantly impressed with the standard of food and the reasonable prices for basic dishes. The food and beverage manager Nikki is exceptional and went out of her way to make sure we felt spoilt during our stay. The extra touches that the hotel provides makes it such a standout. There is a reading room with a pool table and fruit and biscuits that you can help yourself to (thankfully we had wonderful weather during our stay so we didn't make use of this room much but it would be great on rainy days). The hotel also hosted a movie night on the Friday evening complete with popcorn and lounge chairs right on the beach! We were also given a lovely anniversary cake and coconut drink to celebrate our anniversary on our first night at the hotel. The pool area is very relaxing and the views are just breathtaking - the view is different every day and it was definitely something we will miss. We spent many an hour relaxing reading a book around the pool. Some other highlights of our trip to Koh Yao Noi included dinner at Rice Paddy Restaurant and watching the sunset, exploring the island on a scooter (THB300/day), having a massage at Cape Spa (highly recommend the Traditional Thai massage) and eating at other local restaurants - our pick would be Kaya - such great food and unbeatable prices (must try Mango shake and Papaya Salad). Cannot thank the staff at Cape Kudu enough for making our trip so wonderful. One of the best hotels we have stayed at.
Ah where to start. What a great little hotel this is. Mrs H and I stayed here as part of a multi centre trip to the Phuket region, and had four nights at this splendid hotel. First off, we were dropped at the local ferry port. When you arrive here you go to the Cape Kudu lounge where tea and coffee is provided and there are toilet facilities. This means you do not have to wait around outside in the heat or indeed pay to use the lavatory. Once your boat is ready you are taken outside and boarded on to either a speedboat or a long tail boat (both are quick but the speed boat is about 30 minutes and the long boat is 45 minutes.) The trip is good fun and gives you an opportunity to marvel at the view of all the little islands as you rush past. It is nothing however compared to the view when you arrive. At the port you will be met by someone from the hotel who will load you and your luggage in to your transport to take you to the hotel. Upon arrival you are checked in at the beautiful reception area with views out to the Andaman Sea and all the little islands in the distance. Check in was a breeze with very helpful and friendly staff. Our room was a second floor sea view room and it was lovely. Great views out to sea, great sized room, nice bathroom (with a proper door, none of this fancy glass stuff), and a bed that just swallowed your for sleep. Outside on the balcony was a couple of chairs and a suspended seat for relaxing in. Some of the rooms have a bed to side wall meaning you look right or left to see out to sea, some of the rooms have the beds facing the balcony so you wake up looking straight out to sea. If i had my choice i would have changed rooms to one with a bed facing straight out, although my view was still amazing. On the night we arrived the General Manager was holding a wine & cocktail party at the pool area. It only ran for an hour and was a great way for guests to mingle, have a drink or two....or three! and a nibble on some food. All free and courtesy of the hotel. You were not forced to go, but it was a great way to meet people. It felt as if we had stepped back in time. If we all dressed thirties style we could have been in an Agatha Christie novel! The breakfast at the hotel was plentiful, flavoursome and varied with something to suit all tastes. The main restaurant and bar area was a good place to meet, have a drink and look at the incredible views. What sets this hotel aside for me was just the sheer level of service. One afternoon the 'Movie on the beach' was cancelled due to rain. A few of us had gathered in the bar area for shelter and the General Manager came in, apologised for cancelling the movie night and promptly bought us all a drink!! How's that for service. We had a slight problem with noisy neighbours (we had an interconnecting door and they had loud babies!) We merely asked if they were checking out soon as we hadn't slept well because of their noise (and i had knocked and asked if they could turn it down a bit), once Tobias (the deputy) had confirmed they were checking to that day he then treated us to a complimentary Thai massage each to help us sleep......what a legend! He didn't have to, and it wasn't the fault of the hotel, but they genuinely do want you to be happy (so if you have a problem please don't wait to post it on here, speak to them first as i bet they will sort it). If you want to take part in some trips speak to Tobias as well. He organised a boat trip to four islands with snorkelling and fruit and water. it cost four of us 2800THB for the whole party, which was great value for a five hour zip across the water. The hotel arrange it with trusted locals. We also did an island tour with a local taxi driver organised through the hotel. It was 800 THB and basically you stop where you want for as long as you want. The driver may not speak much English, but i guarantee they will take you to places you wouldn't find yourself. All in all this was just a super hotel, with superb service, superb views and a superb ethic towards its guests. An old fashioned feel to customer service that is so sadly lacking in many hotels. They are a credit to the hotel industry and we loved every minute of being there. We used the gym, it was air conditioned, good machines and had water available as well as towels and changing areas. We used the spa, it is modern, calm and relaxing (i would worry if it wasn't). The treatments were lovely, but i will be honest and say i don't know what the price was as it was complimentary. The bar and restaurant prices i found to be fair based on it being a hotel (so expect a premium), and the views and also the quality. Yes it is much cheaper to eat in the local restaurants, but I didn't feel they were taking the ride out of me like some other hotels do. I would recommend a room on the second or third floor for the best views, and although the bungalows look lovely, i think you need to weigh up what sort of view you would get from one as the views are stunning, especially at sunset. There are plenty of restaurants and bars within walking distance of the hotel if you want to explore, and they do wicked ice cream in the Cape Kudu cafe next door (65THB per scoop). If you are staying here you will not be disappointed, and if you are thinking about staying here i would thoroughly recommend it. Thank you to all the staff and management for giving us a wonderful four days in your home!
This is a gem of hotel to stay at. Fantastic location, very quite, plenty to see and do. Hotel very helpful. Bike and side-car rental outside. Easily able to cycle or motorbike round whole island. Transfer by speedboat lovely. Food and rooms great. Restaurant and bar is beside pool. Infinity Pool overlooks Andaman sea.
a wonderful place to wind down and relax in this great hotel. Olivier ensured that we visited the places we wanted and the service was excellent.A local speed boat service ensured that we could do a couple of day trips to Phuket.
