I travelled through Thailand for 7 weeks and my 4 days at Laem Thain was by far the most memorable.
I wanted to get away from it all. I wanted space, privacy and chance to experience Thai culture at its best. Having rented a large 250cc Honda dirtbike when I first arrived on the island I was able to explore the island very easily. I arrived at Laem Thain in the morning and by the afternoon I had packed up and moved from one side of the Ko Tao to true tropical paradise.
Everything is perfect at this resort, if you want to get away from it all. You will be secluded from the mainstream as travel back and forth is by 4x4 taxi or a powerful dirtbike. The road over the moutain is steep and not so easily traversed with small scooter. However, the question begs...why would you want to leave pure paradise in the first place.
The big three highlights of the place; snorkeling, seclusion and the staff.
I snokelled from shore everyday and in those days I saw the best marine life in my entire trip. Moreover,, guests staying there who had dove on other reefs commented it was some of the best marine life they had seen too. Reef sharks, sea turtles and little Nemos as far as you could see all inhabit the tiny cove.
Seclusion at its finest...any honeymooning couple will appreciate all this place has to offer. And as far as staff goes, Pingpong and 'James Bond' will go out of thier way to accommodate you. Can't wait to go back...
