This has been our absolute favorite little find in Ko Tao, we stumbled upon it by complete mistake. They had a bungalow for 800BHT (20Euros) with beautiful views of the beach and the rocks without pre-booking so we took it - this place has access to two secluded beaches, it doesn't seem to be known to a lot of people...

We stumbled upon this resort while exploring the beach, and it was such a treat. We immediately booked a bungalow right on the beach for our last night on Koh Tao. It is very simple lodging, with good mosquito nets and big open windows. The view was unparalleled, so so amazing. Our fans didn't work, but we didn't discover this... More

Sai Thong is probably how Koh Tao once was during its early days of tourism: basic, clean and relaxed. Nothing fancy, but for us it was perfect. The beach is stunning and the family that owns the place is shy but very sweet and their cooking is delicious! Only thing missing to make the rating 5 stars is a slightly... More

I found the sai thong resort on the guardian top ten places to stay in Thailand, after the business of koh phangan we wanted somewhere quiet with few other guests and a great beach. We knew that sai thong was not the easiest to get to on the island (you can get a longtail taxi boat to the beach or... More

A wooden, simple hut on a palmtree beachfront. Mosquito net, bed, toilet, sink and shower, hammock on the deck outdoors. Swimming, snorkling from the moment you open your eyes early in the morning. What more do you need? When you do need a little more comfort, you can rent a less simple equipped bungalow on the lovely kept grounds of... More

This place is perfect as long as you know what to expect. It is cheap and very basic accommodation - a bamboo bungalow with insects etc included. We ended up staying 10 nights as we enjoyed our stay so much. If you are looking to get away from the crowds and you want peace and quiet to read a book,... More

This place is gorgeous and has an incredible feel, the beach is just perfect. However, do not come here if you dont want to "rough it". There will be creepy crawlies in rooms etc because thats what this is - basic shack bungalows, a room for a night or more if you can handle it. We had an incredible view... More

Wow, what an amazing experience!! We stayed in cabin on the rocks and it was truely magical and wonderful. I felt like I'd stumbled onto a movie set of some charming castaway movie, it was surreal. Unfortunately, we stayed during wet season with strong westerly winds, so with strong waves crashing below us some nights (and a rock hard bed),... More

We loved our stay at Sai Thong Resort! The bungalows are rustic but comfy and steps from one of the most beautiful beaches on the island. The staff is great and the restaurant is amazing! Jump in the water and you'll find incredible snorkeling! This is truly a gem of a resort for those who don't need excess and are... More

The beach is trully beautuful,accessable only by boat, few bungalows with sea view surrounded by palm trees! Totally recommendable for romance & nature lovers. Note: the bungalows are quite basic, but with a nice terrace & a hammak. Loved that place!
