Friendly, dive-oriented spot
10/1 Moo 1 Haad Sairee, Ko Tao T: (077) 456 374
Sairee Cottage has a great range of accommodation to suit a range of pocket depths.
Their huts are well spaced around open grassy grounds with a good deal of tree cover. The cheaper bungalows are basic Thai-style wooden huts while the higher-end rooms are classy with special attention paid to cosmetic detail. They also have a sand volleyball court in the central courtyard. While most rooms are set back just a few steps from the beach, Sairee Cottage has a relaxed beachfront restaurant serving inexpensive Thai and Western food. Their resort is open to divers and non-divers alike but you will receive free or discounted accommodation when diving. The team here is sociable and accommodating and can often be found hanging out in the resort pool on their time off.
