Ko Tao

A travel blog entry by faye-chris


We set off early from Koh Phangan and headed for Koh Tao on Saturday morning, after a bumpy catamaran crossing which took around 90 minutes we arrived safely, for the first time we had someone at the port waiting to collect us and take us to our accommodation, this was a good sign!

On arrival at Koh Tao Cabana we were greeted with a glass …

Exploring Koh Tao on Quad bikes

A travel blog entry by al_deb_far_east


We can't believe it’s been a week since the wedding!! At breakfast we decided to hire the quad bikes and go exploring around the island. Deb has a dreaded tummy lurgy so she opted to stay home for the day but all the others climbed into a taxi and off to town(Mae Haad) to find some good bikes.

We hired 4 quad bike ATV’s, one …

Better than Phi Phi

A travel blog entry by jesstellstales

As predicted the night train was hell...imagine trying to get comfortable in hard (and very dirty seats), when your swaying side to side, and the person's chair infront of you is broken so it's literally in your lap. Never again. But we did make the bus and the ferry which was a very big plus!

Not too much to write about Koh Tao as nothing …

... the Advanced Diving Course. To accomplish the advance diving you have to do five adventurous dives, my choice was a night dive, deep dive ( combined with the wreck diving), peek performance buoyancy, navigation dive and fish identification. I honestly enjoyed each of these dives, but I guess my favourite was deep diving when we got down to 30 meters and dove next to the wreck and also the night dive which is totally different ...

... about 20 Japanese tourists throwing up into their sick bags in front of us and Marts refusing to budge from his seat whilst staring at the horizon so he wasn't sick,,,, He did good though and held it in :)

One of the main activities in Ko Tao is scuba diving, It is the cheapest place to do an open water course which I was considering so we decided on the first day to go around and get some quotes and info on this, chatting to many English ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Koh Tao Cabana Ko Tao

    Great location but staff need training


    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.

    Koh Tao Cabana's beauty offset by problems


    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

    Ultimate relaxation


    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.

    Secluded Island paradise!


    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!

    Heaven on Earth


    What can I say? This place is amazing.

    Little Cabana's on the hill


    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!

    Lovely resort


    I have just returned from a four day break in Koh Tao staying at the Koh Tao Cabana resort in an Ocean View bungalow with air con and hot water.
