A wonderful hideaway, away from the mess so many parts of Thailand have become!
On the premises there are 20 something very basic bungalows for 250B and a few bungalows with higher standard and also houses, belonging to westerners, that might be for rent while the owners are absent.
The house owners are like a little “community” within the resort. Extremely friendly people, who will welcome you warmly upon arrival!
See www.siboyabungalows.com for accurate info about the bungalows and the island. http://tezza-thailandbeachesandislands.blogspot.com/2008/12/you-dont-come-to-siboya-for-beaches.html is also a source of information. Apart from these you will not find much more info on the internet. Very few tourists come to Koh Siboya….
Come here for total relaxation in a beautiful scenery, surrounded by friendly people, and for the brilliant restaurant.
The owner, Mr Chung, and his staff will do everything to make you feel comfortable (without being pushy). Actually, they feel more like your pals. The only somewhat scheduled activity is the daily game of “Tak Raw”, sort of Volleyball played with your feet, at 17.00, where the staff also participate (and play considerably better than the westerners). Couldn’t participate due to injury but it looked fun.
Don’t come here for magnificent beaches – swimming is confined to high tide.
Don’t bring children, they will be bored beyond belief.
Just come here to relax on a completely non-touristy island.
