As your ferry docks, you realise that you have arrived at one of the most beautiful places on earth. Clear blue waters, huge rising boulders and emerald green nature to fill the spaces. From the relaxed theme at check in, to the long walk to your Villa under the trees, this is pure Island Style Living. Our Villa was Right on the boulders, overlooking the beautiful ocean, the views are something that you see in these holiday magazines, and you just sit and gaze in amazement at the beauty of nature.
The rooms were inadequately furnished and a little small, resulting in our luggage being kept on the benches in the patio, definitely needs an upgrade for a resort with such an amazing location they should consider keeping up with current hotel trends. The location for Breakfast was breathtaking, as can see the entire ocean from your table, with the waves crashing under your feet, sadly breakfast choices were very limited and definitely needs special attention. Halaal food was a problem, as the hotel was not familiar with Muslim Guests. We were pleasantly surprised and relieved to find a Halaal Pancake Cart – Ameen’s Pancakes – for the most delicious pancakes on the Island.
Management and Staff at the resort were very warm and friendly, and went out of their way to make us feel at home. Carry lots of mosquito repellent, as you will be viciously attacked at Dawn and Dusk.
The bay was absolutely beautiful and snorkelling was good with calm clear waters. The scuba diving centre however was not as professional as other centres, with their service being very impersonal and rushed.
The highlight of Koh Tao was Nanyong Island, too much to be said catch a long boat at the docks and spend a day there.
