Why so darn good? "This is our favorite beach resort EVER! We don't know how the resort does it, but there is a gentle breeze at all times of the day - from early in the morning until late at night - so it is a joy and pleasure to spend your days lounging on the sumptuous oversized outdoor beds and lawn chairs while overlooking the crystal clear waters, craggy coastline, and the sharks that roam through the bay in the early morning."

Location: "The Haad Tien resort is located off a horrible dirt road with giant rocky clumps. Unfortunately, it is not easy to get in and out to the main Koh Tao area. However, once you make it to the main road, there are plenty of great restaurants, shops, and dive shops within easy reach. Koh Tao itself is a beautiful island with cheap (though not necessarily spectacular) diving."

Rooms: "Haad Tien has several types of rooms, but the cheapest options run around $75/night. These are small yellow bungalows that overlook the beach on a hillside. The more expensive rooms range from $150 to $275 and are luxury teak bungalows built directly on the beach. The grounds are, in a word, stunning. The beach is beautiful and there are giant futon beds spread strategically through the grassy fields that overlook the beach."

Food: "The food is mediocre, at best. Your best option is heading into the main Koh Tao area."

Vibe: "The vibe was laid back and romantic."

Keep In Mind: The road into Haad Tien is truly horrible so we would not recommend driving a motorbike into the resort unless you are a comfortable and experienced driver. There is currently no swimming pool at the resort but there are planning on constructing a pool. I expect that rates will eventually go up, but right now the bungalows for $75 are a great deal.
