It is the location of Ko Tao Resort that wins hands down for me. It is a most beautiful bay which was less than 10 seconds to walk to from our bungalow. OK it could be spruced up but then how long do you spend in your room when there is a beautiful pool, amazing beach and sea almost lapping... More

I have to agree with others who say it could need a facelift. Staff ( mostly) speak good english and are friendly, the location is good, although a bit away from the 'strip' which is a good thing I guess... Perhaps not only for this place but many places on koh tao seem small and crowded, I guess it's partly... More

I am not sure if it was because we were at the end of our worlwind tour of Thailand & Cambodia But our 5 day stay at the Ko Tao Resort were some of our most enjoyable of our trip. From the quaint little town of restaurants and shops to snorkeling & kayaking around the point to Freedom Beach and... More

I decided to stay in a more expensive hotel for a couple nights while in Koh Tao because I wanted to see what 65$ US a night would get me at a paradise island, in Thailand. This was the biggest accommodation mistake of my travels and I'm not too happy about making that mistake. I was tired after a long... More

Paradise zone has stunning views and nice rooms, staff are very friendly and helpfull. The area is nice abd quiet, easy to get anywhere if you ride a bike. Wont give 5 stars because we had to change rooms the first night and the A/C was really noisy.

The paradise Zone was on top of a hill where you could see both sides of the island and besides us, there... More

Stayed here for about 4 nights. The room was clean and tidy, but nothing special. For about 1900 bhat a night, in quite an out of the way location, I was not that impressed. Although there were seats in front of the room, there were so many insects it made it uncomfortable to sit there. Paper thin wall in the... More

My wife enrolled in the Emergency First Response Instructor Trainer course at the Buddha View Padi Test center so we needed a place nearby. After consulting our trusted Trip Advisor, we chose the nearby Ko Tao Resort & we were pleasantly surprised. Set into the hill side for a beautiful setting the many levels add character. Our simple room had... More
