Mango Bay Grand Resort
Luxurious and private
Mango Bay, Ko Tao T: (077) 456 948-9
Mango Bay Grand sits along a green hillside overlooking the turquoise waters of Mango Bay.
A long stone path winds from the water up the hill where well-spaced bungalows are placed so that guests enjoy privacy. The resort is isolated at the north end of the island, although its location near a popular dive spot means guests must put up with frequent boat noise. The bungalows are very large, very well-furnished and clean; an army of cleaners is unleashed on each room when guests depart. The resort's restaurant is overpriced and offers the same selection one can expect to find anywhere on the island, though it provides wonderful views of the bay. Sit and soak up the rays on the huge sun deck (chairs will cost you 50 baht apiece) or enjoy the pristine water with a rented kayak or snorkel (50 baht/day). There is no beach here but you can kayak or snorkel to the beach and visit the only other resort in this bay.
