Hotels on Koh Tao are available in different categories and prices, there are cheap hostels and bungalows on the shore, but, in General, by Thai standards the accommodation on the island is quite expensive. For a normal hotel with basic amenities (hot shower) will have to pay 1000 baht (Thai currency), a good hotel will cost 2000 baht for lodging in hostel or Bungalow for about 500 baht per room.
On Koh Tao is highly recommended to book in advance, especially during high tourist seasons, in the period of Thai holidaysand a few days before and during the week after the monthly party , Full Moon Party on neighbouring Koh Phangan. At this time there is a real chance to remain without a roof over your head, or pay a speculative price for poor accommodation. If you have a tent, it is possible to do without the hotel placed on the shore, no you will not say anything (unless of course you will be staying right in the middle of a crowded beach).
Find and book a hotel on the island of Koh Tao on one of the most popular search engines for hotels in Asia Agoda.com can through the search form. Russian interface and Russian-speaking customer support is present:
Almost all the hotels in Koh Tao located near the coast on the beach or very close to them. Depending on your wishes, you can choose a hotel or other accommodation in the popular beach with lots of entertainment, or in a secluded quiet location.
Most of the hotels located on the West coast of the island on the beach of Sairee (Sairee Beach), in the Bay of Chalok in the North (Sandy Bay) and also on the beach of Mae Haad (Haad Mae). If you don't have any special preferences to the place of vacation and you want to be in the thick of things and close to amenities and entertainment, then you can choose accommodation in one of these places.
Sairee Beach (Sairee Beach)
It is the largest beach of the island, the most popular and developed in the tourism plan. Night life, restaurants, beach activities and water sports, shopping – all concentrated here. And all this with excellent quality beach. The beach is long, more than 2 kilometers, and on this stretch at any time of the year, regardless of the tides/the tides will be possible to find a nice place for swimming. There are also many places for diving and snorkeling.
What else is good, within walking distance from Sairee is the centre of the island, Mae Haad (Haad Mae), and you will be able to access the pier, banks, shops, police, travel agencies, etc.
This place is perfect for those who are more important activities than a relaxing beach vacation.
Bay of Chalok (Chalok Bay and Chalok Baan Kao)
On the beach in this Bay has everything you need to relax, but it is much more modest than on Sairee beach. The choice of accommodation here is also much more modest, but the hotels are far from each other, and some can say, even in isolation.
The advantage of this location is that here you can swim at almost any time regardless of the tides. In addition, the relief closes the Bay from the weather. The marine life here is not too varied. This place is perfect for a beach holiday.
Beach Mae Haad (Mae Haad)
It is the center or even the capital of the island. All typical urban infrastructure is concentrated here. Shops, banks, offices, police station, hospital, travel Agency, Marina, ferry is here. There is also a lot of hotels.
For a beach holiday it is also quite a good place. However, the depth is very small and during the low tide the sea goes far, but for most children it. Here are a few quieter and quieter than Sairee, which is especially important if you want to sleep at night. Well, if you want entertainment, Sairee will always be at hand, within walking distance.
Tanote Bay (Tanote Bay)
This Bay is located on the East coast. This is a great quiet place for those who want a secluded getaway. In addition to the hotels and the beach there is practically nothing. Keep this in mind when you choose a hotel here. The place is not cheap.
There are several beaches and coves hotels on the island. They are all perfect for a secluded beach holiday, but the infrastructure there is practically no. If the tourism infrastructure and inexpensive food nearby is important to you (in hotel quite expensive to eat), and at the same time want to be isolated, then choose the beach near one of the most popular.

Re: General questions about SamuiAnyChek27 August, 2017 Hi! Just got back from Samui, August 2017, when in all of Thailand the rainy season. It there is absolutely not there!

Re: General questions about Samui, Phangan, TaoAlkor553 April, 2018 The rainy season in Thailand is nonsense.All the different provinces. For Koh Samui in July ,August and until mid September is the best time of rest. And this time, not the rainy season. There is a month can go 3-4 rain for 15 minutes. And this is the peak season. In Italy from August 1 to September 1 all the holiday( in Spain too) and at this time the island crowded with Italians(but not the Spaniards,there are a few). 10 times vacationing with his wife on Koh Samui this summer for a month each time. Russian tour guides(friends) we were told that winter here is worse.A few years ago I went to Koh Samui in winter from 20 January to 15 February. Really did not like.Every three days the storm in the sea grass, boards, logs and other debris. And weather is normal, you can relax. But it is not a rule, sometimes worse, but sometimes better.Therefore, from 1 November the best place to relax on Koh Chang until March, then worse.But the ball there is a zero. So everybody is looking for what suits him. Someone like Phuket, some don't, also the winter vacation is good there, but for us in winter, Koh Chang better.I will add that to Chang the wild tides and need to get serious about the choice of hotel. ...
Re: General questions about Samui, Phangan, TaoadminApril 4, 2018 All true, and nobody on this website never claimed that in Thailand the rainy season is one for the whole country, and on this account even sickly seasons sign is - https://nashaplaneta.net/asia/thai/resorts.html#seasoing. But you draw conclusions about the weather on several trips at one time, and one trip to another - not objectively. Still the best season in Samui is in January-April. And the fact that you were not so lucky... well, weather is unpredictable because almost... ...
Re: General questions about Samui, Phangan, TaoAlkor554 April, 2018 Read the post above. This answer for AnyChek. And what about January-April , I live here told friends, operating guides. It is friends, just guides I'm not going to listen. Been there, done that. And about the spring floods you forget about autumn I will not say, you do know about them and during them happening. And that weather is unpredictable, you're right... But for our 10 year old travel to Samui had no problems with the weather. ...
Re: General questions about Samui, Phangan, TaoNadine MahlerMay 16, 2018 Samui is a wonderful island! We flew from Moscow with a stopover in Bangkok, the tour was in early March. The weather was great, and just in the last day the sun hid, and we learned what a tropical rain. :lol: we stayed in the wonderful hotel briza resort. The hotel consists of many small two-storey houses, each house a maximum of 4 rooms. The whole hotel look like the garden of Eden, is buried in verdure. https://s21myt.storage.yandex.net/rdisk/0282b1215fc5aa0f9776ead8d3eb30ea7b0acb1ab2a4eba4fc66a156dca1f0a0/5afc4db2/Iz9EtxiULe3pXe_aog7SrfP5T_43wlLv_b9lx8n9N07GEU-OGdwP9vM_n5V-S2R2LIJYfg_5nV8DUua9XazBtA==?uid=570953836&filename=screen-27.png&disposition=inline&hash=&limit=0&content_type=image%2Fpng&fsize=2072870&hid=6d79051b068192af380a65417fe5a4fb&media_type=image&tknv=v2&etag=e2021e4c562e918db407b5fb8c87741f&rtoken=ncVj3wQnrMFr&force_default=yes&ycrid=na-d2defb59a16233bd47c136326d27c948-downloader19f&ts=56c5458895080&s=4f047c83238c7b9d16e7a83ee43932c83b7da2bb355dbe39aaea70aa538d1e8d&pb=U2FsdGVkX18n1T8abB1ZlqtlxBErujBILFWrjXfoPwWO4Bilw3WCWb9esdIYIpV1pqN7v6ek0w7NLrwBPP9hTUIc1ssORClzTCxHqh2pmPc the Island is very interesting because on one side you can only see the dawn, and on the other the decline. We lived in Chaweng, there are only sunrises, so we decided one evening to go to the other end of the island to watch the sunset, and absolutely do not regret it, it is very beautiful! https://s93vla.storage.yandex.net/rdisk/cc802dd98f2f5b87f5aa7a21aa4bb7c8ab8e8c86350b5b585a8aa30fbfb524f0/5afc4e09/Iz9EtxiULe3pXe_aog7Srevm3usYZCmB4ywxsHa2FWd38j4XrRZROfOtWGOXa--MO_1CdzR4bnGeAOKk2chqKA==?uid=57095383 ...

Re: General questions about Samui, Phangan, Taoadmin17 September, 2018 I have a strong opinion that trips to a guide which tells about the sights, only needed for historical sites. And considering that there are places on Samui not, then excursions are not necessary, if you are able to reach on their own. If you drive a motorbike, take it in rent and go, all you will see. ...
