Where to Go
Accommodation Koh Tao
Although small, Koh Tao features nearly 20 beaches and bays with a wide variety of accommodation, ranging from Sairee Beach, the largest and most popular, to Jansom Bay, a tiny, exclusive beach with a single resort. While it was once common for resorts that had dive operations to prohibit anyone from staying there unless they were diving, this is now only the case with larger dive resorts, particularly during the high season. In fact, as there are so many resorts offering dive certification it’s not uncommon for students to receive free lodging while doing their PADI courses! Fortunately there are many options for non divers, including budget beach bungalows, mid-range family friendly resorts, and luxurious and romantic retreats.
