Tohko Beach Resort
Ao Toh Ko Bungalows
A nice, scenic and quiet spot, friendly and helpful owners but not the highly rated top spot, becaus...
What we say:
Sitting on an idyllic stretch of very isolated beach on the east coast of Ko Phi Phi, Tohko Beach Resort is one of our long-running favourites on Phi Phi. It sits on an idyllic stretch of very isolated beach on the east coast of Ko Phi Phi. It's grown over the years and now boasts some 40 rooms, mostly in wood and bamboo, but some more solid concrete rooms with air-con are in the mix as well. Prices likewise have crept up over the years and the high season rates are, for the standard, very high indeed; this is solidly in the flashpacker bracket nowadays, but does retain a backpacker vibe to it. Food is good, though not cheap, and there is a well-positioned bar a little to the south of the main resort. The main restaurant has a pool table and small book selection. While you can walk here (either along the rocks to the south or over the headland via the viewpoint), having walked it both ways ourselves, we absolutely recommend taking the boat. While it is now a tad overpriced the especially friendly staff help to keep this as one of our favourites on Ko Phi Phi. Snorkels and kayaks are available for rent. WiFi, at the restaurant area only, is included, but electricity is available only from 18:00 till 06:00.

Ao Toh Ko Bungalows
A nice, scenic and quiet spot, friendly and helpful owners but not the highly rated top spot, because the bungalows should be cleaner for such a high rate. We've got fleas in our bed and therefore a lot of painful fleabites. Therefore i would deduct at least 3 stars from the average rate. Sorry, but these things must change better.

Not that great
We chose the Ao Toh Ko Bungalows on the basis of the favorable reviews on this site. On the positive side, the staff was very friendly and the beach and reef were also good. The food was fine and reasonably priced. The bungalows, however, are pretty awful. The first one that my son and his wife were offered had boarded-up windows and an overflowing toilet. The windows had broken sometime in the past and had never been replaced. My room was barely larger than the bed and the mosquito net hadn't been washed ever, I don't think. Covered in gekko droppings. And not even one hook to hang anything on. There is no power in the daytime, so it is impossible to be in the rooms until the fams can run in the evening. Most people who were there when we were shortened their stays and moved on. This could be a very nice little place to stay if the owners took even a little bit of interest in keeping it up. As it is, it isn't worth the money or the trip.

Great - if you like rats
I stayed here for two nights after reading all these great reviews, but really, really couldn't see what the fuss was about. To start with, they don't honour bookings so you're arriving on a wing and a prayer of getting the room you actually want. The staff are friendly, but the other people staying there weren't particularly so. Very much the 'I'm not a tourist, I'm like a traaavveelller.' yeah whatever mate.
It's also very remote - and the supposed 100 baht boat is basically non-existant. I asked could i be brought to the main beech on a couple of occassions and was told I couldn't - once because of 'the tide' and the second time because there 'were not enough people who wanted to go. I walked, and then had to pay600 baht to get a boat back. If you stay here - be prepared to spend practically all your time at the resort where there is basically nothing to do but relax. Great if you've come away with only that in mind, but if you like going out and meeting people etc, stay somewhere else.
the biggest problem I had with this place however, were the rats. In the rooms. I can't stand the things and there crawling in and out of the gaping holes in the huts at will. I walked out of the shower and one was standing on a beam beside my head. I woke up in the morning with rat******all over me - they were crawling on me in my sleep. there are piles of rubbish close to the resort which explains their pressence.
the hype about this place is quite shocking - can't see any reason for it.

Ao toh ko was my worst experience in Thailand. Room was tiny, and not as promised. A water supply boat anchors in front of the small beach every other day and makes terrible noise for hours. There was a rude Austrian and a Rude Irish guy helping us (not what I look for in Thailand). After an hour we decided we wanted to leave, yet the lady running the place, with the help of Phillip (the Austrian) said that if we do not pay the full night they will not take us to Ton Sai, nor give us the number of a boat service. They did not offer other rooms, or any solution, simply we either pay them 2800 Baht, or we are stuck on this secluded beach. We finally managed to get workers from the NOISY boat to take us to the next beach where we got a beautiful Villa, better views, amazing Thai hospitality, and all that for considerably less money. We were lucky, but later on the same trip we heard other horror stories about Ao Toh Ko. There are better places on this side of the Island, like Relax beach, and Rantee Hut. Many reviews here seem outdated as new Villas have been built etc...

A fairly peaceful getaway for people on a budget
We stayed here for 4 nights and were very impressed by- the view from our beach front bungalow;the snorkelling which was absolutely amazing; waking up and going to sleep listening to the waves; the friendly staff.
We weren't impressed by- the constant traffic noise from the taxi boats going past (driving right over the coral and fish), the noise from the big boat that was moored in the bay the whole of our stay delivering water (as Phi Phi has run out of water for the first time this year apparently). There was also a mix up on arrival - we ended up waiting 2 hours for our lift from Ton Sai.
The more expensive rooms (ours was 2,400b a night) have air con, hot water showers and TVs, although the electricity to power these is only available between 6pm and 7am. There are mosquito nets and I didn't mind the geckos coming in via the roof - they were very sweet!
The resort offers daily trips in their boat, as well as a taxi service (100b) twice a day to Ton Sai. You can also walk over the hill to Ton Sai which takes 45 mins - make sure you put mosquito repellent on first!
In general a peaceful, back to basics way to spend a few days of relaxation, as long as you don't expect luxury. You'll also meet lots of other interesting people.

If you're looking for seclusion
I was planning on staying at this resort but ended up not staying after seeing it. Don't get me wrong, it was definitely a beautiful setting.
I think that if you are going for something secluded and not too fancy then this place would be good. The bungalows give it a camping feel and it is a little difficult to get here. I decided to stay in the town and found a room that was much nicer for the same price- no private beach though.
The town area in Ko Phi Phi is really fun and nice to be close to so I think it really depends on what type of trip you are looking for. Staff did seem very friendly.

Paradise away from the crowd
The ideal location to tune down after a trip across Laos and Cambodja. We were picked up at the pier as agreed by phone just a day in advance, stayed for three nights, and had a perfect time.
Friendly people, excellent food, stunning location and no boozing Russians for miles.
Hiking to Phi Phi 'town' is about 45 minutes. Can't think of any reason to visit town in the first place, but if you're planning to go there, they're happy to bring you by boat for 100b.

If you want a chilled spot with a good vibe and awesome snorkelling - this is it!
We found the staff incredibly friendly and helpful, the best on our entire trip.
The cheap bungalows are small and basic, but still comfortable and more than adequate. Had our own bathroom and mosquito net with no holes in it. Was the only place we stayed in, besides the luxurious Charm Churee, that actually offered a mosquito net.
A nice beach with stunning snorkelling. The swimming's not great at low-tide but still fine to snorkel.
Loved the restuarant,vibe and had really good food and service - and a couple of winning cocktails.
Only 2 negatives - One, the litter - which is a problem and does detract from this awesome place. We did see a small effort in cleaning it up tho.
Two - the Longboat traffic - which carries on all day and does detract from the peacefulness. Doesn't make sense as to why they have to use the waters over the reef, which damages marine-life and is a nuisance to guests.
Besides the two major negatives, it was our favourite spot and we'll definately be back.
Great vibe and staff!

Not as good as expected
We chose this place because of the recommendations on Travelfish but we were a bit disappointed on our arrival. There is actually only a small stripe of white sand beach which you is shared by many people. The food in the restaurant was not bad but nothing special. Our bungalow was quite pricy (1000B/night)but this didn't protect us from all kinds of animals. We even had rats during night time. In addition, the mosquito net had so many holes that our whole body was covered with mosquito bites. We intended to stay for a least one weak but left after only two nights…

Peace on Ko Phi Phi exists!
If your looking to escape the beach party scene and relax, Ao Toh Ko is a great choice. The bungalows themselves are somewhat basic, but the friendly atmosphere among follow travellers and fairly good (and not overly expensive) restaurant are pluses. The beach itself is quite rocky and not the best for swimming (with loads of urchins), but this makes for a great snorkeling location. You can also rent a kayak and row to nearby Rantee beach for more marine life and a bit more sandy beaches suitable for swimming. Ao Toh Ko is laid back and a great place to relax on the beach and catch up on some reading. The staff is pretty friendly, though the laid back serving style can sometimes seem a bit abrupt. Overall, Ao Toh Ko provides a great place to escape and find some peace on the sometimes overcrowded Ko Phi Phi Don. Worth a visit!

We stayed here for 6 nights and would have stayed longer if we could have. The location is unbelievable. We especially liked snorkeling right off the beach. The resort itself was nice but nothing special - not a good place to go if you're looking for a luxury vacation, but great if you want somewhere laid-back and quiet. The food was better than you'd expect at a beach resort like this, though not entirely consistent. The staff was friendly, including Scott, who is not Canadian.

Great Place but Expanding
We stayed here for a week and had a memorable time. The bungalows might not be the nicest (at least the cheap one) but the location made up for it. Best snorkelling ever (directly off the beach), daily dolphins coming by etc. You should be OK with geckos in your bed and a rat eating your soap though (it looked quite healthy otherwise ;-).

Top hospitality - nice beach
Pon and family's hospitality, the secluded east coast location and the excellent and cheap food are the things which will see me return. The bungalows are sturdy, clean, with comfy beds but otherwise nothing special apart from the views. I was a bit disappointed in the amount of rubbish lying around, and the passing longtail noise can be a bit of a pain at times, but no worse than half the other beach bungalows I've stayed in. One feature light sleepers may take into account -- the roofs of most of the bungalows are metal and during wet season a lot of fruit crashes down from overhanging trees. Pon told me this is not a big deal in dry season and I have stayed in a lot of similarly roofed places and never struck it. Regardless, Lady Tezza, a notoriously fussy sleeper, is in love with the place. During wet season this side of the island is sheltered from the prevailing wind so the beach can be a pretty serene place to spend time. Not the family was putting in an air-con bungalow when I visited

What an amazing place!
This place was one of the highlights of my trip. We intended to stay for two nights but ended up staying for a week. The snorkelling, beach, food and hospitality were fantastic and it is a wonderful place to chill out and relax. Beware of the cold showers (I actually got used to them), and variety of living creatures (but they have the right to be there, I'm sure they were there first!) I'll definitely go back to stay if I ever return to Thailand!

Beautiful and relaxing - loved it!
Stayed here in November 2006, such a peaceful relaxing place. Very basic and cheap but the views are stunning, the owner Pon is like your own mum looking after you. Ben who runs the great laid back Bar, is very friendly and makes great cocktails! Make sure you have a torch as the walk to and from the bar can be tricky in the dark, dodging the crabs! The snorkelling just off the beach is the best in the area and if you don't mind a trek through the jungle, follow the path up from the beach to the view point. It is definitely worth it! Things to remember is, there is no electric during the day from 6am-6pm, no hot water or air-con but there are fans to use at night. If you don't mind that then you'll love it!

Lived it loved it
I stayed seven nights in April. Perfect for me as I just wanted to relax.
Good food friendly staff nice scenery. I arrived walking over the view-point. Took about an hour with a full pack, without 45 minutes. And Ben take care, next time I will arrive with wife and child(found out when I got home)

Beware-reservations not honoured here
All I can say is they did not honour our reservation, which means terrible service as far as I am concerned. We had called a few days ahead to reserve and were told yes that we could have a bungalow. They took down my name and so forth, so we went ahead and booked our boat tickets. I then decided to call them on the morning we were supposed to go over to re-confirm since my current guesthouse mentioned that I should. Good thing I called, when I spoke to the management they said they did not have a bungalow available and maybe we could come the next day instead because their current guests decided to stay longer. They did not care that we had already booked boat tickets and that in high season other places are booked solid. I have to say this put a damper on our plans and I seriously cannot recommend this place to anyone, you are better off looking elsewhere if you want a reservation.

After all these great feedbacks, we maybe arrived with too many expectations; the spot definitely is nice, Pon makes one feel very welcome and everyone else too was friendly. The restaurant is very cheap to be the only one in the area and has a big choice of meals (eg pad thai about 60B). But we didn't like: the beach and the surrounding gardens were full of dirt, looking down from our beautiful verandah, you saw many bottles, rims, tires, papers etc., the owner could have spent some time cleaning up his place, or hire someone to do it... to be honest, this was the dirtiest place we saw during our four week trip. We didn't mind the cold shower, but to add to all other comments: the water is not only cold, but salt water -- that is ok for 2 days, but for longer....?!? Although the food was very good and cheap, we both got very sick after eating a masaman curry; keep in mind: no electricity = no fridge?! stick to commonly ordered meals!! We also found the noisy longtail boats driving by every five minutes right in front of the beach very annoying, like at the race track, until 10pm. For us, it sort of destroyed the feeling of peacefulness. And keep in mind, that when you arrive in Phi Phi harbour, you will have to pay between 200- 300B per person to get to Ao Toh Ko. Walk five minutes along the beach on the viewpoint track, over a little hill past the small supermarket and you will maybe get the price down to 150B or even lower. We found a great boat driver right there called Nang; his boat is, when compared to other longtails, very qiuet, he makes a good price and you can also hire him for a full day out.

Basic, but fun...
We decided to upgrade to the new 1000 Baht a night bunglaows. These were still pretty basic and if you are needing luxury, best give this resort a miss. The beach, however is awesome and Pon the owner will make you feel really welcome. The food is cheap and there are some great trips. If you are looking for a cheap and fun place to stop on Phi Phi, then this is perfect.

Great!! Great! Great!!
This place is great. We couldn't have asked for better. Ben was great, Pon is great, food is great, the bar is great, the prices are great, the other guests are great. We stayed for four days as the first ever quests of the new VIP suite. If I recommend anything, the best is renting a long tail boat for a four hour ride around Phi Phi Ley (ask Pon about it). You are the only people that aren't in a huge overcrowded touristy speed boat honking at you to hurry up. You have as much time on any of the beaches that you like. (But be careful about the monkeys on monkey beach--they bite and I still have the scar). If you have the chance: snorkel everyday, spend every night at the bar meeting everyone else, and eat every meal at the restaurant.
However there are some cons to the place. There's no electricity during the day, no hot water, lots of bugs, toilets that don't really flush, and no air conditioning. If you need any of those things this isn't the place for you...and you wouldn't fit in anyway. :) You need lots of bug spray and I don’t recommend the hike to town.
Other than that, if you want a cute (cheap) place with a real backpacker feel and nice people this is the place. Thanks Ben and Pon...Jeremey says 'hi'...I hope to see you again soon.

This is a great place to stay. It is a lovely secluded beach on the east side of the island (near Hat Rantee)and the snorkelling is simply outstanding. We saw almost as much snorkelling here as diving on other parts of the island. The food was also great and the owner very friendly. There are some things to be aware of though. The facilities are very basic. Bathroom had jungle toilets, very little light, no hot water and no sink. For those who enjoy their creature comforts, this is not the place for you. There are no services nearby (including internet) and to get to the main town is 100baht each way per person (pretty sure no charge for arrival and departure though). Still, we had a lovely time and would recommend it for anyone who doesn't mind roughing it.

I've Got a Secret
It's this place... on this island. Unbelievable. We planned on going to Ko Phi Phi for just a night or two, ended up staying for six. Everything below is true. Best place to chill out on the planet. And food is sensational - how about some fish or lobster 30 minutes out of the water, and the recipe made from scratch for every order...

Very lovely and very chilled. These are the only bungalows on the beach - and what a beach it is, with lovely snorkelling and clear blue sea, and a lovely view from each and every bungalow. Also, the food is great, and as others have said, Ben and Pon are lovely.

This is a great place to stay. All the goods things everyone has said we completely second. Just be aware that a reservation doesn't necessarily mean you have a spot reserved. True to southern Thai style this means first come first served. If someone decides that they don't want to leave when they said they would the owners will not kick them out because it wouldn't be nice. This can lead to a lot of confusion or frustration for those with a western mind-set. We were initially unable to get a bungalow when we showed up at Ton Sai Bay and had to stay the night in the crazy party zone. Once we got out to the resort we had to make due with a bungalow more expensive than we planned on. This was happening quite a bit to people while we were there. Basically all the hype they are receiving on Travelfish is making them more busy than they can handle so be patient and make sure that you have a backup plan if you can't get what you want. They owners, though, are soooo incredibly nice! In the long run it is worth trying to stay here.

A wonderful, relaxing place
Ao To Koh is a wonderful, relaxing place to go away from the hustle and bustle of Ton Sai. The owners are lovely and will go out of their way for you but please be aware that at the moment, the accommodation is extremely basic. Some of the huts have squat toilets and some have no doors between the toilet and bedroom, just a curtain. We had sea view huts, and the view was amazing, but the waves are extremely noisy at night so take ear plugs. Also, if you're not very good with bugs, don't go! There were lots of crawly things and flying things in our hut as the walls don't meet the ceiling, to let the air in I presume - thankfully they provide a mozzie net so at least they couldn't get at us at night. They are building new huts though apparently so it might change very soon. If you can cope with basic accommodation then you will have a fantastic time. They will pick you up in Ton Sai if you let them know you're there and will organise boat trips and other things for you. I had the best meal during our Thailand trip there. Make sure you take a torch as the paths get pretty dark at night, and also, try to walk up to the lookout point - it's a bit of a tough climb if you're unfit but the view is amazing. Great place to go for a few days with lovely people and tranquil setting. I have loads of photos if anyone's interested. firstname.lastname@example.org

My husband and I stayed here for four days in Jan 2006. The food was amazing and was a great value. The bungalows were very basic, but it was all you need for a nice get away. In 2006 they will be opening newer (nicer) bungalows here. Ask for them when you book. If you let them know what ferry you will arrive on someone will meet you at the pier and arrange transport to the bungalows for you. Bring sun block and bug spray! Have fun!!

My wife and I stayed at Ao Toh Ko in October 2005. What a wonderful place. A beautiful beach with great snorkelling just offshore, superb food at the restaurant, and Pon, her family and staff, are fabulous. They will also take you out on a snorkelling trip to Phi Phi Leh for next to nothing. Just a brilliant place to chill out. But be warned, this is not 5 star accommodation. Our bed was rather uncomfortable, the room very dark and in need of a bit of repair, and we had a small problem with a rodent. But they were small complaints compared to the joys of staying at such a fantastic place.

I think the other comments say it all but I'm going to repeat them, this place is fabulous! The owner Pon is lovely and cooks amazing food, you have your own private beach with great snorkelling and cheap boat trips to the other islands.
It's a lovely secluded spot on the other side of the island from Ton Sai, the main town, which is still pretty wrecked from the Tsunami. This has easily been the highlight of my trip, you must stay here, call and Pon will pick you up from the ferry in her boat!

Great place !! Lovely family
The place is unique, private beach, nice basic bungalows, and a restaurant with great homemade food. The owner, Pon, is so friendly, her kids are so cute and nice, they make u feel home... Its a really quiet place if you want to take a rest seating by the beach, or snorkelling. You can also rent their longtail to go to other places. The tsunami struck the restaurant only, which is now ok. So everything work normal. You can call her before arriving and she will pick you up at Ton Sai pier. She did with her 3 kids in her longtail boat! that was really nice. It is totally recommended. It is away from the villa, which is pretty damaged but its been cleaned up.

I stayed at Ao Toh Ko bungalows over Christmas and was there when the tsunami hit. There was damaged caused to the restaurant and kitchen. I have spoken to the owner and now the damage has been cleared and resort is up and running. Ao Toh Koh is a relaxing, secluded and beautiful place. As this is a family run business they need tourist to continue to visit. The food there is the best I tasted in Thailand and the family couldn't be nicer, they make you feel welcome and at home there. They have some new concrete bungalows and can take you on great boat trips for snorkelling.

We stayed here for ten days! The owner is amazingly friendly and the food matches the surroundings. It is almost like having your own private beach and compared to the chaos that is Tonsai Bay this is truly chilled out. If you want to stay though it is best to ring up before you arrive in Phi Phi.

A great place to get away from the crowds on Ton Sai village and a very friendly owner. Some of the cheaper bungalows have gaps in the walls, but all beds have mozzie nets.

Rustic, but great. The owner is fabulous. It is a wonderful get away from some of the more popular resort areas. You can snorkel from the beach or arrange a long tail boat to Phi Phi Lei. Snorkelling equipment can be rented here. There is a restaurant on site and the food is wonderful. They are currently building more upscale bungalows and may eventually remove the more rustic ones so if you are looking for an inexpensive place check the price first. It was full the entire time we were there so I would recommend calling ahead for reservations. She will also come pick you up at the ferry dock for 100B p/p (private boats wanted 125 to 150B).
