Very relaxed and friendly
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.
Poseidon Resort, located at the edge of the sand on Tanote Bay, provides very basic no-frills huts at a good price.
The small wooden bungalows are very simple and a little weathered but are clean and comfortable for the price. Most are up the hill a short distance behind the beachfront restaurant. The laidback restaurant offers a decent selection of Thai food and a few Western standards at reasonable prices. This spot is very quiet but has plenty to offer those seeking good times in the water. Kayaks (100B/hour) and snorkels (50B/day) are available for taking advantage of Tanote Bay's clear waters and abundant sea life. Safe boxes, laundry (50B/kilo) and travel assistance are also available. Poseidon has a special taxi departing Tanote at 09:00, 13:00 and 16:30 for 80B/person and departing Mae Haad at 10:30 and 14:30 (other times will cost 150B/person).
