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.
