Finding the Best Place to Stay on Koh Tao

To find the best place for you to stay on Koh Tao we recommend to first book a basic resort room for 3 nights (700 THB/night) at Sairee Cottage Diving in advance. During this time we will help you find long-term accommodation. Although some places accept reservations, most long-term accommodation options on Koh Tao do not offer booking opportunities before you arrive, so in most cases it’s best to book it when you are on the island. If you feel more comfortable booking long-term accommodation before arriving on Koh Tao then please visit the Bua Management Koh Tao website or become a member of Koh Tao Rooms For Rent on Facebook.
