Beautiful design

More on Ko Tao

The Sensi Paradise’s smart dark-wood villas are spread over large grounds with lots of flowering trees pouring over Mae Haad’s best stretch of beachfront.

Travelfish says:

Rooms come in 12 varieties, topping out with a three-bedroom villa that fetches 15,000 baht per night. With wood shingle roofs, vaulted rattan ceilings and mosquito nets hung from bamboo frames, designers achieved a level of elegance that most of Ko Tao’s midrange resorts don’t come close to. Some villas are placed atop massive boulders beside the sea. Others stand on stilts behind broad reaching palms.

The grounds are large enough to provide some privacy for most rooms, though a few in the far southern corner face the footpath to Haad Sai Nuan. All rooms come with large furnished terrace along with expected amenities – air-con, minibar, safe, fridge, TV. Staff are polite, even if the guy who greeted us seemed shocked to get a walk-in passing through. Facilities include a large lagoon-style swimming pool, beach loungers and a seaside restaurant.

Rates at Sensi fluctuate throughout the year and discounts can be scored online. If you’re after something a bit cheaper in this area, neighbouring Royal Resort has smaller dark-wood bungalows in the 2,500 baht range, and Blue Diamond Resort offers poolside rooms in a two-floor building for around the same price.
