“Affordable luxury in relaxed surrounding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2010

Tacola Resort is located on secluded Ko Kho Khao Island, getting there is not hard but still has some adventure feeling to it. From Phuket or Khao Lak take a Taxi to Ban Nam Khem (take a left from Route 4 about 5 km south of Takua Pa) Pier. There, load your luggage on one of the taxi boats (20 Baht/Person), once on the island take a taxi to Tacola (100 Baht max.). You will find yourself on a beach several kilometers long, sharing it with only a handful of others. The resort is very modern, rooms are spacios, we had one of the "twin pavillions", which could be best described as bungalow duplex. The rates were surprisingly low (1700 Baht during Peak Season).
Tacola is right on the beach, and there is also a huge pool with a swim-up bar. Cool! The kids pool unfortunately is a little too deep for children under 4. Breakfast buffet is great, but lunch and dinner prices are definitely above avarage. However, there are two beach restaurants right next door and it is only a 15 minute walk along the main road to the pier village with plenty of reasonably priced restaurants and several small supermarkets. Caution: Mini Bar prices at Tacola are steep, and so is laundry service. Bad style: All food and drink prices do not include tax and service charge, so always add 17%

Staying at the Tacola Resort and Spa was a very nice experience. It is located in Koh Kho Khao (or Kho Khao Island)around 150 km North of Phukets airport, reached by car/bus and then boat or ferry.The boat/ferry trip takes only 5-8 minutes and then from the pier of the island 3 minutes by car or 15 min walk to the hotel.
Being far from the "big" cities in Phuket and from the busy Khao Lak, if you want to rest and take it easy, this hotel is the perfect choice.
The breakfast is the best, it is served on the terrace with view to the garden/pool. Breakfast includes lot of fruits, some vegetables, egg, bacon, sausages, thai dishes, potatoes, omelets (made according your taste), good coffee, juice, bread, jams, cheese etc.
Rooms are spacious,with balcony or terrace, have coffee/tea facilities. The staff are very kind and helpful. They can give you a lift to the pier/restaurants (in the island) with a big smile.
If you want to make some trips to the mainland or to other places, the staff are happy to help you book it for you. You can hire a taxi (with driver) to go to Khao Lak, Takua Pa etc directly in the hotel.
There are not much people on the beaches, so you have practically the beach for yourself (and other guests of the hotel). No salesmen/women seen on the frontbeach during my visit.
The pool looked very inviting, big and very clean water, with bar. Nice drinks. You can also borrow pooltowels from the bar.
I didnt try the pool, as I had the sea to swim ;). The sea in front of the hotel was very calm in general, no big waves, you can swim for hours.
As I stayed during St Valentine's day, the hotel had arranged a special candle lightdinner for a reasonable price. Delicious dishes were served, with music alive, nice decoration... really nice evening.
The only thing I did not like (and has not much to do with the hotel) was the fact that the sand on the beach may have fleas. But if you avoid sunbathing directly on the sand, you wont get any fleabite. To seat or take a sunbath please use the chairs or the area of the pool, then you are safe :)

  • Liked — location and breakfast
  • Disliked — fleas on the sand- take precautions
