Nang Yuan Island Dive Resort

The only setup on Nang Yuan Island, this resort was built in 1986.

Photo of Nang Yuan Island Dive Resort Bungalows, suites and family-size accommodation are scattered around the adjacent hills connected by a stretch of soft white sand. Rooms are clean and comfortable and all have minibars, but are overpriced compared to what you'd get on Ko Tao proper. Though most offer fantastic views, there is room for little more than a soft bed, minibar and small, unimpressive cable TV. The whole ambiance feels rustic in an old way, not as an intended feature. The walls are made from a mixture of old wood and cement. The bathrooms are clean and the toilets are modern, but showers are just old shower units on the walls without curtains. What might have once been a picturesque, peaceful setting here is marred by constant boat traffic thanks to divers frequenting the area and a daily snorkelling trip that leaves the island gasping for space. You can expect tourists to trek through your landscape view on a regular basis during the day. There are daily, free trips to and from Ko Tao, but the last trip back is at 18:00. For similar prices vacationers could easily stay at either a modern full-service resort, or a rustic seaside bungalow that remains isolated throughout the day on Ko Tao's mainland. The resort's bar and beach restaurant are considerably more expensive than their mainland equivalent and close relatively early (19:00 and 21:00 respectively) leaving the island without amenities at night. Rooms come with fans or air-con and hot or cold water depending upon your specific accommodation choice.
