It can be hard picking the right accommodation when arriving on Koh Tao, the options are many and the price range is broad. We've based the choice of accommodation on the dive center. When diving, you want the dive center to be top professional and above all, experienced and safe in all matters.
Your accommodation with the dive center is basic, but clean and cozy. You can chose between wooden bungalows, with a hammock on the porch, or a comfy bed in the dorm room at our social hostel.
The dive center itself is something else; we know all the dive centers on the island. We recommend this one! Both the hostel and the resort are sharing facilities with the dive center, including swimming pool, restaurant and bar. Both the hostel, the dive center and the resort is located right on Sairee Beach, the most popular beach on Koh Tao.
The beach bungalows are basic wooden bungalows. There are no A/C or hot water in these rooms, but there is a fan to keep you cool at night,
and the shower water gets warmed by the sun during the day. Just don't be the last one to shower. ;) The bungalows have lots of charm and soul, and we love them dearly...!
But, if you want A/C, we recommend the dorm rooms in the hostel, or that you upgrade to an A/C hotel room.
The easiest way to get to Koh Tao is to take the bus from Bangkok. The bus leaves twice a day from Khaosan Road in central Bangkok to connect with the Lomprayah High Speed Catamaran in Chumphon, for a 1½ hour crossing to Koh Tao. If travelling down to Koh Tao in the high seasons or around a full moon party it's always a good idea to book your bus ticket in advance.
