In between our landing in Phuket and PADI stint in Koh Tao my friend and I booked in for one night at Thiw son. It's charm was irresistible and we stretched to 2 nights, the max our time budget would allow. The wooden cabins are in lovely condition and I really enjoyed the open air shower, with reliable hot water, and at night, bathing under the stars! We stayed one night in the mid-priced AC option and one in the lower-priced fan. If your budget allows I'd recommend the stretch to the mid or higher option, they're lovelier rooms, newer, closer to the sea and more spacious. The area is very secluded, with one smaller 'resort' just down the beach, which is great if you want to relax or are happy to hire a scooter to explore further a field. The location is great, right on the beach, sun-rise facing, (the beach is nice but not as beautiful as others around in Thailand, but the least crowded I've seen in the country). One of the big highlights was the beautiful, recently built, infinity pool. Restaurant options are fairly limited and we didn't come across any street food nearby, but it serves pretty good Thai food available to fill you for all 3 meals of the day. The wifi was pretty powerful for an island too. Finally, Nam, the owner, is friendly and helpful, he's tough to bargain with but it was fun trying!
