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 6 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 6 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 6 years agoAnswered by Bri via Travellr.com
