Haadtien Beach Resort
Ranked #14 of 50 Hotels in Koh Tao
Reviewed January 30, 2014

This resort was relaxing. There were several bungalows spread out over a large area so it was pretty quiet. They had a bungalow for every occasion. On the beach, with private pools, large, small, up the hill....whatever you want (can afford). Our stay was well worth the price. Check in was smooth. One thing I've learned from the Thais is when they're behind a desk, they're very to the point. We were in our bungalow within 5 minutes. The beach bar and main restaurant were nice and the food was decent. Our only complaint would be the food service. Twice at supper, on two separate occasions, we had to get up and get our own menus and place our orders after waiting for more than 20 minutes. The staff looked more than annoyed when we asked for menus. Because the resort is a bit from town, it's not like you can get up and walk to the next place to get food. With that being said, you need to catch a truck, rent a bike or take their complimentary shuttle into town. The four days we were there, the weather wasn't fantastic so the water and beach weren't ideal but the pool made up for it. Honestly, I'm not sure I would stay again and that's all because of the food service.

Room Tip: The beach bungalows would be nice because you have your own lounge chairs in addition to your day be...

Hotel rocks, there is not much to say other than it is perfect inside and out! We stayed there in 2010 in the toddy tree villa & the staff was great & so was the beach. The food was nice and cheap and the breakfast was royal-room service! It is one of the nicest bungalows in Koh Tao but there are some things to consider about the beach before going.
First during the day there are a lot of tourists coming in so the beach gets pretty packed. The low tide seems to be a problem early in the morning but you can swim for the rest of the day without a problem. Another point is that the second time we went (few years later) the restaurant had changed it's local id to a more vip touristic look & feel, change of management. The other thing is that transportation is an issue, if you don't rent a car. Also, there are not many choices of restaurants near by.
What amazed me (in a bad way) is that in one year the corals of the beach had practically disappeared..and that makes sense since no one will say to the visitors not to remove corals from the beach. So if you go don't remove any ore corals and shells from the beach! It is a great place to snorkel and relax after the tourists are gone..

Room Tip: I think the Tody tree villa is very cool to stay. Shady and perhaps you can ask for a hammock! The q...

We stayed 2 nights at the castaway villa which was the most amazing experience since the room is literally on the beach about 6 meters from the balcony.. There is a very big pool but who needs it being so close to the ocean clear blue water.
Other than that, staff is unpleasant and food at the restaurant is bad and priced .
I would defenetly go back, ignoring staff and just eating out .. The room and the private beach is defenetly the highlight of the perfect island experience .

The resorts is very nice although one of the most expensive on Koh Tao. The staff was friendly if not to mention reception lady who was obviously lost and did not really know what she was doing. The beach was lovely - but a good clean in the mornings would do good as there was debris washed out from the sea that did not look nice. Beach bar was lovely with two friendly Thai bartenders. Restaurant - food was good but expensive. Also the services such as thai massage was overpriced - you could get the same for much less in town. Despite this overall experience was lovely.

Dear Both,

Many thanks for a wonderful review and constructive feedback, the feedback on the reception lady has come to my attention and i feel sad to see a comment, we shall discuss with the full team again here.
as for the beach beg to differ a bit we do clean this beach all day 7am is our first clean up on certain days we do get a lot and takes a full team to collect the worlds garbage.
great feedback on the beach bar bartenders Khun Sun and his colleague khun so-new.

for the spa as we are a fully operated spa with with fully trained massage therapist, these are not the same as those in the shops in town most don't have a certificate of services.

thank you both for the review and we hope to welcome you back in the near future!

So we arrived on the 23rd, just before Christmas. We wanted to stay somewhere extra special for a few days over Christmas. We were collected from the port which was fantastic, I think the trip from port to the hotel took about 20 minutes.
We stayed in a Castaway beach front villa which was beautiful, small, had breathtaking views and was nothing less than we had wished for.
The buffet breakfast each morning was delicious, try to go early so you can get a nice booth right on the beach looking out to Shark Bay.
The service was impeccable. Friendly staff, they couldn't do enough to help. Our bags were lost on the way to Thailand. We were given a tracking number by the airline and Haad Tien followed up all the time for us, and even collected them for us free of charge from the port on Christmas Day without us even requesting it.
The beach bar is also very convenient with delicious cocktails and simple food for lunch. The resort is expensive in comparison to the food and drink in nearby Sairee Beach, but I suppose that is to be expected, and is still "cheap" vs home.
If you are looking for a place that offers a luxurious experience, with amazing surroundings, 20 minutes by taxi from Sairee Beach where the main night life is located then this is the perfect spot.

I normally don’t write hotel reviews but we really had one of our most wonderful breaks in this fantastic resort so I felt compelled to comment on our stay. It all started by being picked up right from the port which was great service. The size of the resort is just right, we were there at the end of October and it was not too busy which was lovely. The bungalow was really nice and peaceful. The service of the staff was great, I once called reception and within 3 minutes a member of staff was at the bungalow to assist me.

One thing I can’t praise enough is the food, I think we were just there when a new chef started and his food was absolutely superb, we were on a 6 week trip through Asia and that was by far the best food we had eaten. Also, a huge variety of different dishes is offered and there is also a BBQ every evening and that was just delicious. The hotel staff were very helpful and catered to all of our needs, even a surprise dinner for me at the beach which was most romantic and the chef created dishes as my partner requested! Absolutely fantastic!
Also, there are lovely tables beach front for breakfast and dinner where you sit on cushions which gives you a cosy feeling which we loved (there is obviously alternative tables and chairs for guests who don’t enjoy this).

It all has a very personal touch; the manager is very hands on and is always about happy to chat and listen to the hotel guests, which is lovely. Also, the diving manager lady was very nice and helpful and organized a really nice diving day out for us.

The only reason I gave the Spa three Points was that even though I did not use it, the prices were too high in my opinion.

I think this is a very special place with lots of character and not your typical tourist style hotel. We will definitely come back if we have the chance to and I can’t recommend it enough!
