Looking for some Koh Tao luxury resorts? Koh Tao is an island north of Koh Samui and Koh Phangan in Thailand. It's one of the best in the Gulf of Thailand and is often referred to as "Paradise Island."
Weather is warm and conditions are at least reasonable year round in sunny Koh Tao. The month long monsoon can seem a bit daunting but after the heavy downpours the sun can come out again. October and November are the hottest months. The dry cooler season in the middle of the year is great.

Located on the secluded island of Koh Tao on Sai Ree Beach. This resort is luxury at shoestring prices. It emphasizes being an "escape resort" and it's natural tropical setting. Relaxing and the beach are the main activities here.
There are a number of different villas available - including one round one (30 in all). They have air conditioning, cable TV, king size beds and are set among tropical gardens. They look out onto the sea.
The open air restaurant looks out onto the seashore. It has a large wine list and serves Thai-fusion dishes and seafood.

This resort is located in the southwest section of Koh Tao, on Jansom Bay. It's said to be one of Koh Tao's most beautiful and private beaches. The beach is lined with coconut trees, has soft sand and interesting rock formations.
There are 2 restaurants that service Thai, Western and other tropical
food. There are a number of different cocktails available here also.
Thai massage is available to relieve sore muscles, relax and rejuvenate
Accommodations are decorated in Thai and Balinese style. They range from guest rooms to 3-bedroom villas.
Reviewers say the beach is nice but small. The resort is set on a steep hill and that means you will be climbing a lot of steps. One reviewer recommends you don't book the basic rooms as the superior ones are much better. There are quite a few mixed reviews and it would be best to take a look at what's being said at the time you are reading this.

Ko Tao Resort is one of the Koh Tao luxury resorts and is located next to Chalok Baan Koa village. This resort has not been receiving great reviews lately. It is generally recommended for young single people and was one of the first resorts ever on the island.
It's got great sunset views, a range of accommodation and a great pool. It has air conditioning but it doesn't have a safe in the room. Be aware that you may need to be careful with your valuables.
