The Hideout – Koh Yao Noi

sustainable luxury treehouse retreat in southern Thailand

    Company Description

    THE HIDEOUT on Koh Yao Noi is a stunning eco retreat on a lush and sleepy tropical island in southern Thailand.

    Nestled in untouched jungle hills, THE HIDEOUT  lifts guests to a pristine location overlooking beautiful Phang Nga bay, its roofs barely visible amongst the towering treetops. With just four treehouse villas, this hidden gem prides itself on sustainability and a concept of simple, small scale luxury — they remove all modern distractions, affording their treasured guests the unique opportunity to truly surrender to the experience of nature and beauty.

    Each of the HIDEOUT'S  Thai-style lodges are constructed with eco-friendly building materials sourced from the island itself and crowned with palm leaf roofs. Designed with an organic architectural vision, the rooms are crafted to the highest quality and comfort standards in the region, striking the precious balance between open-air living, privacy, and tropical luxury. Their spacious beam-work, 270-degree exposed faces with bamboo blinds, and an open-air master bath inspire a singular sense of immersion with your surroundings, complete with breathtaking views of The Hideout's tree-lined grounds and the sparkling waters beyond.

    Combining open-air living with privacy and communion with Nature, this is an experience designed to help you unplug from chaos of modern life.

    The Hideout is a tech-free haven where rest and rejuvenation come easily. It is also an excellent destination for yoga and wellness programs, professional retreats, nature study, as well as five-star source of organic, authentic, and same-day fresh Thai cuisine (catering to carnivores, vegetarians and vegan, halal, and other special diets).

    Whether you're yearning to unwind with an unforgettable barefoot escape or are keen to experience holistic ways to unplug and relax — from private island-hopping treks in a traditional longtail boat to world class yoga & meditation experiences, traditional Muay Thai sessions, Reiki & Sound Healing, traditional cooking classes, bird watching, hiking, biking, or Thai healing practices — The Hideout has you covered!

    The Hideout is proud to use 100% renewable energy sources.

    What makes us special

    There is a secret waiting for you
    A refuge…an oasis…a sanctuary
    Tucked away from the World that you know
    Built from nature’s bounty, by those who call it Home
    Where the only sounds you’ll hear
    are the music of the jungle and sea
    And the only fear you’ll have
    Is missing a single moment of it
    Step back in time, away from your World
    to the hidden one that was made for You.

    Away from the World.

    There are no distractions - just unspoilt scenery and the sounds of the jungle
    Delicious food - from locally sourced and organic ingredients
    Sustainability practices - the energy used is 100% renewable
