Just spent two weeks visiting my son and staying at The Rocks. Koh Tao is an amazingly beautiful yet, by European standards, fairly primitive island. The rocks is a haven of style and substance here. Janine really knows her stuff and this small private resort is everything the web site promises. If you are young hire a motorbike, but if, like me, you are knocking on a bit hire a car or use the many taxis. All roads on Tao - except the one coast road - are steep and only partially concreted, and Koh Tao is a hill. If you are aware and prepared for this your visit will be a dream. I have stayed at a number of places on the island and The Rocks is the best. Cool - in both senses - and with a view to die for from each unit. All the staff are a joy and will do everything to help you enjoy the island paradise.

- The Rocks are boutique residences in southern Thailand offering both privacy and personal service. Surrounded by lush tropical jungle and stunning sea views, our four boutique villas and infinity-edge pool combine a feeling of tranquility and relaxation. Under Swiss and British management the Rocks are proud to be the original boutique villas on Koh Tao. Secluded, but still less than 10 minutes walk from the beach, they are the perfect holiday location for romantic couples, families or groups of friends. The Rocks is also a great location for your honeymoon. ... more less
