Tucked away on the south coast of Koh Tao is the picturesque Haad Tien Resort. With as close as you can get to a private beach in Thailand the resort has a distinct air of seclusion. All of the standalone rooms are spaced out through the expansive gardens of the resort and gently slope down to pristine sand and crystal clear waters.
Haad Tien is by no means a fly a flop destination as getting here takes a little more effort. The Ferry journey from Koh Samui is a pleasure in itself and the resort’s private transfer through Koh Tao is guaranteed to crack a smile (but you’ll hopefully be smiling by that point anyway).
Eleven of the Villas boast private plunge pools and the Castaway Villas that front directly onto the beach have views to die for. Haad Tien is barefoot luxury in the most idyllic of settings.
