Located across the island of Koh Tao, on the beach of Tanote Bay Montalay beach is a nice secluded resort. The beach is really nice and the pool which over looks the beach is great. Due to the fact that you are secluded on this side of the island it is expensive; well for backpackers. Restuarant menu was very small and expensive at least $6 a meal at the bare minimum. Now dont get me wrong the food is good. Our 1000 Baht bungalow was nice comfy bed, bathroom,fan and flatscreen. However, we seemed to be sharing our temerorary residence with one rarer gecko. The tokay gecko is the biggest gecko in thailand and he played residence onto of our bathroom mirror and beside the air con. Now due to the fact that the have an odd mating call, ablitity to bite and not let go and ugly appearance, he had me a little intimiated and often left a little uncomfortable to go into the bathroom. But that was just our experience with the gecko.
