koh tao first week of september

My boyfriend and i will be in koh tao the first week of september - were going to samui first.

We'd like to know any nice places to stay in Koh Tao that are fairly cheap? We're not diving there but many friends have been and said it was their favourite island. we were thinking of staying there 5/6 nights, is this too long? We just want sunshine and R&R! and nice quiet beaches and maybe a nice beahc hut to stay in or something!!

Thanks!!

Hi

Welcome to the Koh Tao forum.

Do you want total isolation, access to lots of bars and restaurants or a mixture? What you and I consider as cheap will be very different, especially as you're visiting within peak season. So if you could give a budget, even a rough one you'll get more specific answers.

Hello :)

Well ideally no more than £40/50 a night but hoping for less? Access to restaurants will be nice but definitely not going for a party! Quiet beaches, isolated or not, just not crawling with tourists and brits abroad!

Thank you

Hi

Chalok Baan Kao sounds like a place you might enjoy, Ko Tao Resort is where we've stayed previously which was well priced and good location. Sensi Paradise is a really nice place with a super beach location but far enough away from bars and restaurants. Not certain that would be within budget though. Even staying at the north end of Sairee allows you to have as much or little night life as you want which means Palm Leaf Resort might be an option too.

Have a look at the hotel reviews to see if anything else is appealing, just shout if you need any more information

5/6 nights it's not too long, I would spend one month too!!

Enjoy Koh Tao!

I agree with lushlynds - Palm Leaf Resort at the North end of Sairee is within your budget and on the beach. It's a very easy beach walk to the shops, bars and restaurants but far enough away when you want a bit of peace and quiet.
