I'll be on Koh Tao for 5-7 days in April this year.
We will have spent 3-4 days on Koh Samui in a flashy 5 star resort for a wedding before we head to Koh Tao. Consequently, I would like to stay somewhere more up my alley - a clean, simple beach shack/bungalow type place.
So my priorities are:
- beautiful location
- clean bungalow accommodation, with own bathroom, fan (a/c optional)
- secluded but not too difficult to get to Mae Haad/Sairee
My primary concern is just being in a truly beautiful spot. I don't have a specific price range, but I would expect the sort of place I am imagining to be less than $US50 per night for the room. Something in the flashpacker category or lower mid range.
I've looked at Sai Thong which I am pretty keen on at this stage. I can handle a 30 minute walkt to the main action as a trade off for the beautiful location,
As an alternative, can anyone recommend a quiet, characterful bungalow type operation in the main areas that has some modicum of seclusion despite being close to the action?
Any suggestions would be welcome :)

I'm also liking the look of some of the east coast places, especially View Rock Resort at Hin Wong. How long would it take to walk to the west coast from here? If that's too ambitious, how long is a taxi trip?

just posted my review on Queen Resort.
It's not a resort, but a nice bungalow between Ao Mae Haad and Haad Sairee. Cheap and a good night sleep. The island is small, so getting anywhere by foot isn't hard.... though allot of people use a scooter there.... sadly.
Have a good time!

Thanks for the responses.
I chose two places:
The View Rock Resort on the east coast for three nights and Charm Churee Villa for the following three nights.
Feet are getting itchier every day.
