The New Heaven group has a bit of a dynasty going on Ko Tao, running a well-regarded dive school, resort, restaurant and yoga studio on Chalok Ban Kao along with a cafe in Sairee, a reef conservation program and Baan Talay over near isolated Ao Leuk.

At the main Chalok Ban Kao location you’ll find comfortable air-con rooms situated in a two-floor building next to the diving practice pool and restaurant; and a few freestanding, fan-cooled “diver’s huts” and other budget rooms in a small attached building on the hill behind the beach.

All rooms come with sliding glass doors opening to private porches, mosquito nets, woven bamboo walls and private bathrooms – cold water in the budget hillside rooms and hot in the diver’s huts and air-con editions. The rooms were full when we passed through but we managed a few glimpses inside and they appeared modern and well kept.

Divers signed up at the school receive a 300 to 600 baht discount on the accommodation. Non-divers are also welcome and the standard rates aren’t too shabby, especially considering the uninspiring rooms found at the other resorts along this beach. The woman at reception was cheerful on a busy day and the beachside restaurant is a great place to chill.
