I am looking for some recommendations of good places to stay in Koh Tao. Somewhere that is relaxed, close to one of the beaches, and where I can connect up with a good dive school. Less than 500B per person per night would be great.
Hi Werner - there's some good answers to a similar question here:
I stayed at Ban's - they were the largest and had a few ranges of accommodation (fan room, a/c, etc.). The location was on the main beach, and it was a good spot to explore from.
Make sure you go to shark bay and swim with the reef sharks! about 10 years ago
For Sairee Beach check out Wind Beach Resort opposite simple life divers (http://www.simplelifedivers.com) - they have rooms in central Sairee with good location for about 500 - 600 baht per night. Clean and comfortable with fan and en-suite bathroom. about 10 years ago
I went to Scuba Junction and they were fantastic. Very professional, smaller than Ban's - a more personal experience imo. Rooms are basic but very cheap (free if you do an open water course), or they have upgrade options about 10 years agoAnswered by Bri via Travellr.com
