While staying on Koh Tao we visited a number of hotels as we had planned on spending my 30th birthday at a posh resort. In the end we stayed at the Charm Churee. Granted the hotel isn't five star and its rooms could do with a bit of updating. However, the staff, food and location more than make up for this. When compared to other more expensive hotels on Koh Tao Charm Churee is a class above for its atmosphere and beach.
We had a panoramic room. We booked a dexlue room on agoda and were upgraded for free when we arrived. The room had an amazing balcony over looking Mae Haad beach. Whilst I say the acommodation needs upgrading, it was clean and provided more facilities than we needed included dressing gowns, fully stocked fridge and sunbeds on balcolny.
The shower was cold at times, however, this is due to the fact it is solar powered and we didn't see much sun for the days were there.
Jamsom Bay is among the best swimming and snokerlling beaches on Koh Tao. The water is clear and is safe for kids.
The hotel's restaurant is quaint and the quality of the food high, while prices are reasonable.
If we ever return to Koh Tao we will stay here again and would firmly recommend it to our friends.
