We had read the review in Lonely Planet and wanted somewhere secluded after the madness of Bangkok. We were greeted on arrival by the owners in a pick up truck and taken across to the resort. There is no other way of getting there, the road to the resort is pure 4x4 territory, take a scooter at your peril!
The resort is a must for people looking for that peace and quiet and if you want some DIY adventures snorkels and fins can be hired for 200thb per day. Kayaks can also be hired! The fish and coral in the bay is amazing!
The huts themselves are also good value for money (Ko Tah is one of the more expensive islands) but they are basic. There are more expensive options but we stayed in the cheapest hut at 300tbh per night. They are all perched on the side of a cliff and have amazing views out to sea.
The restaurant (which you have to eat at as there is nothing else there) has an amazing selection of food and drink. I could have stayed there for the rest of my life to be honest.
The resort is very relaxing in general and has sun loungers and free wifi. We only stayed 2 nights but regretted leaving. Ko Tao in general is amazing. We regretted leaving for Ko Samui as it has been spoilt by tourism.
