Family Accommodation On Koh Tao

Share this:


Bowthong Resort Koh Tao / Palm Leaf Resort Koh Tao (Beach Only, No Pool)

Located on North Sairee Beach, both these resorts are within walking distance of the main town, restaurants, bars, dive schools and childcare facilities. I like it here because it is quiet, has a lovely beach with an easy snorkeling attraction (The Japanese Gardens) just off the shore and the owners are lovely.

They have a lot of room options at both resorts, including beach bungalows (modern and basic) as well as units.

The food is nice, however the breakfast is not amazing.

I highly recommend the Indian curry, Pork Schnitzel and any Thai food on the menu.

They are very family friendly and supply beach toys for children and cots on request. They have ikea highchairs and friendly food on the menu for fussy eaters.

Avarest Apartments Koh Tao & Cozy Apartments Koh Tao (No Pool, 10mins To Beach)

If you are looking for an affordable holiday option, there is an awesome family sized apartment in Sairee Village that is reasonably priced and allows you to be within walking distance to everything you need.

Found in the same apartment block, these rooms are really nice and come with cleaners, full kitchen facilities, cots and highchairs on request, all amenities, a corner shop and laundry service and childcare pickup. They are locally owned and run through airbnb. Prices vary depending on season, but start at 1,300thb per night.

Sairee Cottage Resort Koh Tao (Pool & Beach)

This is a great place to stay if you want to be in the heart of Koh Tao’s Town Centre, Sairee. A stones throw from Sairee Beach, this resort has all types of accommodation options to suite most budgets. Sairee Cottage offers diving courses and comes highly recommended as a diving school in it’s own right. The facilities are designed for families and has it’s own restaurant, that makes the best Tom Ka Gai on the island, as well as 2 pools, a bakery and a playground for children. I personally love to hangout sipping on fruit shakes (or beer) in the pool bar while the kids are swimming! You will love it!

In Touch Resort (Beach Only)

I love hanging out at In Touch! This part of Sairee Beach is perfect for kids. Lots of shaded areas as well as sunny. The restaurant boasts long benches and tables to spread your stuff out onto, while you nibble on food and sip on drinks all day in the sand. All their rooms are set amongst lovely gardens and are reasonably priced according to seasons. In Touch Resort is not high end accommodation, but clean, well presented rooms at a good price in a fantastic location. Very family friendly management and atmosphere.

Chalisa Villas (Private Pool)

Long time local Belynda Sauva provides some beautiful family villas tucked away in a residential area of Sairee called Jitsin Village. 10 minutes walk from the beach, each villa is self-contained with full kitchens and all amenities, as well as private pools, lovely private gardens and 1-5minutes walk to the Koh Tao Public Playground and childcare facility.

I highly recommend these villas, I have had many family and friends stay in them and the hosting standards by Belynda and her staff are that of a 5 star resort.

With 4 villas to choose from, prices vary according to size. Please checkout their website for more details or look them up on Airbnb for specials!
