Ao Leuk is without question, one of the most beautiful bays on Ko Tao, and while most of the accommodation is mediocre, Ao Leuk II, perched on the southern headland is easily the pick of the crop.

Photo of Ao Leuk II
Dominated by an impressive and fabulously placed multi-deck restaurant that does a solid range of both Western and Thai food, it is worth swinging by the restaurant for a meal or just a sundowner even if you are not staying here.

The bungalows run up the hillside behind the restaurant and snake around it to the south, with some of them having spectacular ocean outlooks. All the rooms were occupied when we visited, so we were only able to take a look from outside (the bungalows are individually photographed on their website), but they looked solid and the location is excellent.

This is a sort after location and while they keep a few bungalows for walk-ins, most can be booked in advance and we’d say reservations are essential in high season if this is where you want to stay.

Staff get extremely mixed reports online, but we found them to be friendly and helpful. If you can’t get in, Ao Leuk Grand Hill (on the northern headland) is a distant second choice, while Ao Leuk I is just awful.

We actually preferred Baan Talay (or better still Moon Dance Magic View) to any of the options on Ao Leuk proper, but it is way isolated further to the north, reached by a separate road, and not a practical option if you want easy access to the beach at Ao Leuk.
