... on the island. The second instructor was Gemma who was only 19 and I ended up getting pally with her.. young but a great instructor! The last night in Koh Tao I spent on my own as Karlienn left with the boys to get up to BKK. I ended up going out to a comedy night which was set up by a guy who did diving with Mojos and after chatting to him in the boat I found out he is friendly with a lot of the comedians I know from Flyering for them in the fringe... small ...
... I haven't seen one of them for ages so i was very excited.
The next day a massive group of us headed over to another little island off the coast of Ko Tao called Nang Yaun. This island is made up of 3 smaller islands which are connected by a small strip of sand which vanishes at high tide. Here the sun was beating down and we were all sweating before we even made it off the boat. Mary and Joseph joined us in the form of Jen and Flo, as they ...
Nothing to get up for in the morning so we took our time and headed to cafe del sol for a sandwich before pottering around the shops.
At 3 we met up with Zoe who we had met in Bangkok and had just arrived on the island. Mel went to meet friends (Carol and Nick from home) for drinks so me and Zoe hit the shops again and then happy hour at the cocktail bar. ...
... to sleep on a roller coaster while your body is being shaken from side to side like a piece of jelly on a plate, not easy!! A bus journey, a boat and a taxi later we were in Koh Phangan. We stayed in a hostel for a chance to meet some people and the first night it was just us two losers! (But it soon filled with lots of lovely people) We planned to chill for 6 days and see some sights etc but somehow got talked into doing a diving course which we had originally planned to do in ...
... owns this is purely focused on charging day trippers as much as possible and has lost all grip on preserving it as an ideallic getaway. As a medium-long term hotel set-up – it is not recommended. But, from what we saw, they are earning plenty so in typical Thai behaviour, why should they change anything?

Historical Traveler Reviews Koh Tao Cabana Ko Tao
Koh Tao Cabana is in a perfect location at the end of the main Sairee beach- close enough to be able to walk to bars/restaurants and far enough away to feel secluded.
I stayed at the Koh Tao Cabana for four nights in May 2006. The resort gets high marks for its exquisite setting -- beautifully designed wooden bungalows nestled in a jungle hillside right above a great snorkeling/swimming beach -- but there were enough problems that I wouldn't want to stay there again. First and worst, one night club located further down Sairee beach plays very loud house music from late evening till the wee hours of the morning. This noise pollution carries across the water and bounces off Koh Tao Cabana's rooms, turning what should be a relaxing night in paradise into an annoying ear-plug affair. Second, the friendly staff smiles a lot but most don't understand English and the service can be mediocre at times. For example, during one breakfast at the resort's pretty waterfront restaurant, the TV there was blaring out a violent cop show over stereo speakers. Not the kind of relaxing setting I was looking for. Also, the lighting in the bungalow is very dim, making reading and writing (there is no TV) more difficult than it should be. Finally, the resort doesn't have a small shop selling food and drink, so if you want anything that's not included in the mini bar (which is stocked with beer, drinks and candy), you'll need to hike into town. If you're into late night partying, the problems I experienced probably won't bother you, but if you're looking for a secluded island paradise resort to chill out at, you might not be happy here.
Not fully operational
Stayed here in April:
1. Well-appointed, chic rooms with AC
2. Beautiful views down from the cliff location
1. Hotel restaurant closed indefinitely ("staffing problems...only a breakfast service now")
2. Long uphill walk to rooms, and no room service available so you need to walk back down for food.
3. no TV
4. no swimming pool
5. outdoor bathroom
After a terrible nights stay at the Koh Tao Island Resort on Hat Sai Ree my husband and I moved to the Koh Tao Cabana. Built into the hillside at the end of the beach, the resort has an excellent location. Quiet and private, but only 10-15 minute walk along the beach to Sai Ree village. There is excellent snorkeling right in front of the resort and free use of mask, fins, and snorkel. A few resident stray dogs wander around the resort but are very friendly.
Rooms are very nicely decorated with outdoor shower, AC, safe, and mini-bar stocked everyday.
The restaurant was only open for breakfast which was included in the price of the room. 3000baht/night. We enjoyed our stay at Koh Tao Cabana so much we extended our stay 4 extra nights.
Expensive with no facilities
Although the location is nice what you actually get for your money at this resort is not much. The resort has no pool and a lot of walking is required. I would certainly not recommend this place for anyone with trouble moving about.
We also had trouble getting our bungalow cleaned and found that it was very difficult to communicate with a lot of the staff and some where downright rude.
Overall I would never choose Koh Tao Cabana again.
2nd time and still love it.
2nd stay here in 2 years. Love the staff. Ideal setting at end of beautiful beach. Snorkeling out the front door. The tree top cabins have lots of character.Will stay there next time we are in Thailand.
Stayed here for a week and half while diving on Koh Tao. Whilst not as expensive as neighbouring Coral Grand it certainly seems a lot nicer. Our bungalow was right at the top of the hill and surrounded by jungle with an awesome view of the bay (+ some very romantic sunsets). It was completely private and although quite an effort to get to (long, steep climb along a paved path) it offered total seclusion. If privacy is something you are after ask for bungalow 32!
Wow what a place, a really breathtaking little island with equally amazing cabanas built into the hillside. A bit of a hike from the village after a few too many but worth the extra few quid to stay here. Air con, flush loo, but towels for bed clothes?? That was an odd one!! Outside toilets and shower, a real novelty until my girlfriend used to wake me up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom with her in case she was attacked by a lizard or spider or something. Expect to see all sorts at night, like living in a National Geographic programme, I loved it!
