Reviewed August 2, 2013

I really enjoyed my stay here. After a 22 hour journey from home, all i wanted was a quiet place on the beach with ocean view, great food and beautiful scenery, to read my book and swim in the sea, and have a beer by the sunset. I got all of that, and there's a great coral reef right in front for some good snorkeling as well. Their food is great, lots of choice. Be aware that it is remote, so don't expect any easy visits to the village, unless by longboat. The accommodation is quite basic, but i had a beautiful sea view and a hammock on my veranda. Loved it.

The resort looks idealic, however, the mattresses are are cement blocks and the noise from the long boats on the ocean don't give much for a good nights sleep. The food was great as was the snorkelling. We enjoyed our stay, but won't be back.

I stayed here with my fiancee for three nights in July. Overall it was a good experience, however there are some issues regarding transport to other areas of the island. We stayed in an air-conditioned hillside cabin overlooking the sea on the first night, which was fine, but moved to a fan-only seaview cabin for the last two nights. This worked out cheaper and the accommodation was much better. More charming, I suppose. The staff were helpful and friendly and the beach and views were beautiful. It's a great place to stay if you want to sit on the beach for a few days. The only problems we encountered were associated with transport around the island. The last boat leaves at 5pm and after that you have to pay about 600 baht for a one-way trip to the main town on the island. The return fare is reputedly higher. This would be fine if there were more eating options nearby, however there is only the resort's restaurant, which is just about okay. The food isn't cheap either, so the few days we spent there worked out being surprisingly expensive.

Stayed at Tohko Beach Resort for two nights, July 21st. and 22nd., 2013, It was the highlight of a month long vacation in Thailand. We stayed in a bamboo hut on stilts right on the beach, waves lapping at our hut. Less than 8 steps and your swimming in the Andaman sea on your private beach, It was an exceptional experience. We had come from Phuket so the isolation of this resort was exactly what we needed. We were met by a longtail at the dock in Koh Phi Phi and within 15 minutes were walking through the water, over the beach to our check in. The staff were very friendly, service was great as was the food. The resort is isolated but has longtail service to and from Koh Phi Phi twice a day. We hired a longtail for a day of snorkelling to Mosquito Island, Bamboo Island and Viking Caves on Phi Phi Leh it was fantastic. Also went to Maya beach, six hours of snorkelling and sight seeing well worth 3000 Baht for us. Although the power was only available from 6pm to 6 am, though wifi and power available at the restaurant and mattresses a bit hard we would go back at the drop of a hat.

My wife and I stayed at Tohko Beach Resort for 3 nights. To be honest, after booking with them and reading the reviews, we got a little bit concerned. We now know why. Before booking, make sure you know exactly what kind of vacation you want on the Island. For us, after a few days in Patong and the night scene, this resort was perfect.
As soon as we arrived at the Pier, we located the representative of the resort. We were taken to the long boat and 15 minutes later, we arrived at the resort. Exactly like the pictures. The resort is isolated from any other hotels/resorts. Private beach and no noise beside the sea.

Very nice people, excellent food and spotless clean. You will only pay at the end of your stay. The will keep a tab for everything, from food, drinks, activities, etc. I am not going to mention about power only working from 6PM - 6AM, i am sure you got the point, still, power is available at the restaurant as well as wi-fi.

Bungalows are OK, only complaint would be that the mattresses are like rocks.

All in all, we were quite pleased with our stay, but again, if you are looking for late night parties, not the place.

Loved the bamboo hut, crabs on the beach, lizards in the trees and sleeping right next to the ocean, had heaps of fun snorkelling too. The staff are lovely and the prices at the restaurant are totally reasonable. I wish I was there now!

Wow oh wow!!

We arrived via Ferry from Phuket, had no idea how to get to the resort.. However someone was already waiting at the pier for us to take us to the resort! This was unexpected and great service. I noticed that other travellers who were taking the long boat arranged by their resort were actually charged 200B EACH just to get to their resort. This is a little unfair considering travellers have no other method of getting to their resort. Ours was FREE so yay!

We stayed in a fan sea view bungalow. It's no 5 star room, but it's what you pay for. Clean, spacious and the beach was right at our doorstep.

The service was impeccable. The gentleman who owns the resort doesn't speak much English, but is always smiling and offering us tips. To kayak for an entire day is 600B but as we only wanted to kayak for an hour, he altered the price for us and we only paid 200B.

The only downfall is that there is no electricity available in the bungalow until 6pm, which runs until 6am before it is shut off again.

It's a great place to relax and chill out or go for a solo snorkel. Not for partying, but who needs on party with this kind of location!

Loved it.
