Our stay at Haad Tien Resort was disappointing. Primarily because of the mediocre standards of the resort as well as the big groups of people there (they have opened a beach club hotel last November, so add 70 (!) rooms to the area), make it far from the luxurious boutique experience they advertise with (and charge you for). The staff... More

Many foreigners stay here, Thais still less. Front beach's not much nice but quiet and can do some snorkeling. Have pool but small. Our chalet is on the steep hill that not... More

One of very few genuine, pitoresque places in Thailand, still without too many tourists , located in a quite isolated part of Koh Tao, on the islands most beautiful beach. We lived in two elegant and simple at the same time villas at the beach front with direct acess to the sea. The quality of living, room service, the restaurant... More

I stayed at the Haad Tien resort (January) for 4 nights. The hotel is nice, but it needs improvement in many aspects. For example, the bathroom "door" is a "curtain" that is too short and not even nice, just a piece of grey fabric, so you have zero privacy!! I stayed with 2 friends and this really annoyed us. But...

After and adventurous ferry ride and 4 x 4 pickup and transfer to the resort we immediately relaxed in the rustic bungalow setting. The beach setting and natural shade provide and excellent spot to relax. We went on a 3 hour snorkeling trip which was spectacular. Each evening at 7pm we took the 4 x 4 shuttle to the village...

Highly recommended hotel, the best staff , suprising good breakfast, on the most beautyful beach of koh Tao. Far away from the 'noisy' Koh Tao , relaxing place ,but also ideal for families with children!

What a shame! The hotel is beautiful on a quiet sandy beach but the service and management is APPALLING!!! During the stay the staff were lazy. It took 2 days to clean up after the New Year's Eve event. Dirty towels were not removed from around the pools until after 10am from the day before and new clean towels not... More

This is a beautiful resort and the villas on the beach are amazing. Ours was located at the end with lots of privacy and peace and quiet. However, the food in the restaurants were very expensive - compared to the rest of the island. A glass of wine cost about €12, which is more than in Sweden. The internet didn't... More

It was our 5th anniversary...my wife and I was trying to find new experience over the beach that we'd never been before in Thailand. We started browsing a few 5 star hotels from the travel exhibition in BKK, we then narrowed down our selections and when finally chose Haad Tien Hotel. What can I say...the hotel was nice and neat...
