The resort boasts 70 private villas and 74 sea view rooms with balconies, scattered throughout 45 acres of lush jungle foliage around a private white sand beach. 

The relaxed retreat now offers a “Chill Out” promotion. Book 3 nights for 2 in a private villa, priced at THB23,000 (US$675).

Known for its scuba diving and snorkeling spots, Koh Tao is the perfect destination to get acquainted with the water activities if you haven’t already immersed yourself in them. Koh Tao offers a vast amount of marine life, with 130 species of hard corals and 223 species of reef fishes. Furthermore, the island is named after sea turtles, which inhabit the area and use the shores as their breeding ground.

Similar to Koh Samui, Koh Tao was once frequented by backpackers in the 80s and 90s, with many travelers now returning with their families to rediscover the island, as more luxurious resorts have opened over the years.

The Haad Tien is now spearheading this new kind of luxury travel on Koh Tao, yet staying true to its barefoot legacy.
