My wife and I recently spent two perfect weeks of our honeymoon at the Haad Tien. From the moment we arrived, to the moment we left, we couldn't have been happier with our surroundings and the way we were treated.
We stayed in one of the Castaway Family Beach Villas - blissfully close to the clear waters of the private beach, all necessary mod cons, serviced/cleaned each day, and a very effective air conditioning system.
The facilities at the resort were great - particularly the black infinity pool with views over the beach. And the beach bar, which served pretty good food and chilled drinks, was used often! Oh, getting a daily message is highly recommended - as is chartering a boat for a tour of the island and some snorkelling.
I should note that, whilst on Koh Tao, we had the opportunity to check out some of the other highly rated resorts on the island. In our opinion, the Haad Tien couldn't be beaten. In fact, we were only due to stay at the Haad Tien for one week, but quickly returned when we got to the second resort we had planned to stay at.
As is often the case, it was actually the staff that made our stay so enjoyable. They're a credit to the place. Always smiling, always helpful and friendly. Indeed, for our last night's stay, they arranged a candle-lit pathway from our villa to our own private table on the beach. Such a nice thing to do for us.
There really is much we'd suggest to improve the place. The wine is very expensive, but that's probably the same everywhere. And care should be taken not to build too many rooms/villas on the resort in the future. Right now, it feels perfectly secluded and private, whilst having everything to hand if you need or want it. They should keep it that way!
