Also there is a second accommodation option available for budget travellers who can  stay at Koh Tao Backpacker Hostel which is located right next to the dive school in Sairee.  It's a brand new building with four eight bed dorms, and will be used by the dive school to accommodate people taking dive courses which include accommodation in the course price.  You will of course still have the option to upgrade to one of the Silver Sands bungalows or hotel rooms.

Luxury Villa Accommodation on Koh Tao

If you would like to treat yourself and have more privacy and luxury then perhaps a private villa may be of interest, check out the Treetop Sactuary Villa's by clicking on the link here.  The Treetop Sanctuary Villas are located in northern Sairee and each villa has it's own private pool and amazing sunset views over Sairee beach.


Accommodation for people taiking longer courses like Internships

When people come to take longer courses with us like Internships then we understand that they aren't really going to want to stay in a dorm room or a fan bungalow and would like to have a bit more comfort and so the places that we usually offer to people when the package they are taking includes accommodation is one of the places you can see here.  If you prefer to wait until you arrive here to pick your own accommodation then that's fine just let us know and we can reduce the price of your course package and you can pay for your own accommodation directly.

Getting Here

How to Get to Koh Tao, Thailand
Most people enter Thailand by flying into Bangkok. From Bangkok there are three main options for getting down to Koh Tao island.

  • The fastest but most expensive route: Fly to Samui.

You can pickup flights from Bangkok direct down to Koh Samui for just a few thousand baht. From Samui take one of the high speed ferries across to Koh Tao island (Lomprayah Catamaran or Seatran) - these cost about 550 baht per person and take about an hour and a half.

If you shop around you may even be able to get a flight direct from your country of origin to Samui, cutting out the Bangkok bit.

  • The compromise : Train to Chumphon

Thailand has a great rail service. From the airport you need to get a meter taxi to the main Hualamphong train station in town (costing about 200 baht). From there you can catch a very comfortable overnight train down to Chumphon. You can get a bed in an air conditioned cabin for under 1000 baht, waking up fresh at your destination in the morning! From Chumphon you take a high speed ferry to Koh Tao island the same mornining. This will take about an hour and a half and costing about 500 baht.

  • The budget route : Bus from Bangkok

Even this isn't too bad. From the airport get a meter taxi to Khao San Road (about 200 baht). At Khao San Road you can book a combined bus and boat ticket direct to Koh Tao. This will be an overnight bus ride to Chumphon, then boat the rest of the way and should cost less than 1000 baht all in.

Look out - there are a few 'sharks' around the Khao San area, out for the na?ve tourist. My advice would be to go into one of the official looking travel agents and book with your ticket with them. Go for the Lomprayah or Seatran services, you should be able to book one of these in most agents. These are fast, comfortable services and usually show DVDs on the way down. You don't want to end up getting crammed on a mini bus or 'local' service.

Free pickup from the pier in Koh Tao
As part of your online reservation with Silver Sands, we include a taxi pickup service from the pier in Koh Tao.

Just let us know which ferry you'll be arriving on [at what time], and we'll make sure there's someone waiting on the pier to meet you and bring you down to the resort. Easy!

If you are making your own way here then you can find us in Sairee Village right opposite the Silver Sands Resort reception and New Heaven Bakery.  To see where we are on Google Maps click on this link here View Larger Map.
