A memorable spot
Ko Tao is so big, we've split it up into areas, select one of the below for detailed accommodation and food listings in that area. Sights and general overviews for Ko Tao as a whole can be found via the icons above. Don't know where to start? Read an overview of Ko Tao's different areas.
New Heaven Resort is a midrange establishment lining the hill to the west of Thian Ok Bay.
Rooms stretch down the hill towards a small private beach. Itâ€™s really only big enough for a few sunbathers, but it makes a great place to set off snorkelling or swimming. Swim out along the reef and you should see the sharks that Ao Thian Ok is famed for. A shady terraced path leads guests to large, very comfortable rooms, each with views across the bay. The restaurant offers great food, both Western and Thai, and is a destination in itself. Chill on the huge deck under parasols, graze and enjoy the view.
