Tacola Resort & Spa

Tacola Resort & Spa

Weathered but well done luxury

More on Ko Kho Khao

A short distance north from Pranee, the Tacola is a luxury resort that’s tastefully designed in a Thai/Balinese theme and doesn’t skimp on the extras.

Travelfish says:

Its 100 or so rooms come in several categories. The standards are set in a three storey building towards the back of the resort and a short walk from the beach, but they have luxurious tasteful furnishings and art, well thought out lighting, polished dark hard woods, couches, desks, TVs, and large, stylish bathrooms. Villas closer to the beach are pricey but include enormous whirlpool bathrooms that feel like miniature spas and private sitting areas. The most expensive rooms have private plunge pools in front and secluded wood patios with cushions abound. Aside from facing an excellent area of beach, there’s a large swimming pool, fitness centre, massage service, and even a games room with foosball, ping pong, and a host of board games for those rainy days. The hotel could be due for a renovation soon, as some of the rooms and common areas are looking worn and weathered, and it was almost hauntingly quiet when we visited. Despite that, Tacola offers solid value compared to the other high end resorts on the island, and they’re one of the few places that accepts guests in low season. Rates include WiFi and breakfast.
