The Haad Tien Beach Resort has a classic island escapism, feet in the sand style. Totally relaxed and easy going…
Nightly price from £88 per person
Haad Tien Beach Resort offers Robinson Crusoe style barefoot luxury. Stripped down elegance, thatched roofed individual villa cottages dotted around the extensive 45 acres of tropical estate, leading down to a 380m soft sand beach.
Travelling here is part of the experience, a 2-hour catamaran ride from Koh Samui usually transit stop at Koh Phangan (see lomprayah.com). You can also fly to Chumpon on the mainland and take a 90-minute Catamaran ride to Khao Tao Pier. Then a short road transfer to the resort. The Catamaran operates daylight hours only.
Koh Tao is lush, tropical and still wonderfully authentic. For years it has been the island of choice for divers and backpackers. The Haad Tien brings a new level of resort comfort and style, without detracting from the essential simplicity of the island. The resort is 10 minutes from the port by hotel open Jitney bus transfer.
Haad Tien Beach Resort has a selection of 70 thatched roofed villas, dotted around the estate. All offer reassuring contemporary comforts – air conditioned of course, with en-suite bathrooms.
You have a choice of:
Hideaway and Getaway Villas, which are located at the rear of the estate. The emphasis is on privacy. They are set on the hillside, but only a few minutes walk to the beach.
The Seaside and Castaway Villas which are a few strides to the beach.
You have larger Castaway Family Villas, which are Junior Suite style, with extra living space for an extra bed.
Plus a Two-Bedroom Castaway Villa, with its own plunge pool.
All are wonderfully simple, rustic chic, with just the right amount of contemporary comfort.
Fantastic beach, of course
A selection of non motorised water sports
Infinity edge swimming pool
A charming spa
Beach bar and Grill restaurant, with Southern Thai cuisine a speciality
Italian Restaurant, located at the adjacent Beach Club
Plus all of the facilities of the neighbouring Beach Club Resort which is under the same management – see separate feature.
The Haad Tien Beach Resort is a welcome addition to our Thailand selection. It has a classic island escapism, feet in the sand style. Relaxed, easy going, yet at the same time resort comfort.
The journey is all part of the holiday experience. Here the pleasures are more natural and deliberately simple.
As with most hide and chic retreats, compatible company might be important! The resort is essentially couples focused, although curious and adventurous children are welcomed.
The island is known for its gap year visitors and divers, and still retains a rather hippy vibe. Expect to see an abundance of tatoo’s and nose rings as you travel around the island, slightly less at the resort.
The best time to visit Koh Tao will be in the months March to September, when the days are usually bright and sunny. Although, being a lush tropical island, you can get short sharp showers at any time. In these months the sea conditions are usually at their calmest, the beaches at their most pristine.
We think the combination with the much more developed and commercialised Koh Samui works rather well. In fact, Koh Tao reminds us of how Samui looked 30 years ago. As the catamaran operates via Koh Phangan, you could consider a triple centre beach retreat, with each island reflecting a different level of tourism “progress“.

Located on the west coast of the Gulf of Siam, just over 2 hours drive south of Bangkok.

Samui – Good, highly innovative hotels and some excellent dining options. The majority of the development has occurred in the north-west area of the island and the more expansive beaches.
Phangan, Koh Tao and Khanom are much less developed, it is like going back 30 years in time, with just a handful of hotels, and offers a true sense of adventure.
