Well placed, Haad Tien Beach Resort is in walking distance to the nearby town, but still directly on the beachfront.

It began to look like an island only 22 sq km and enjoy.


Koh Phangan. In the begeining this petite island had no one living on it, frequented only by local fishermen from near by islands when seeking shelter during storms at sea or when in need of fresh water and supplies. Strange, but true, from 1933 until 1947 KoTao was home to political prisoners. Being situated about 70 kilometres from the mainland meant it was hard to escape from! Alcatraz...piece of cake. Surrounded by crystal clear waters, Koh Tao evolved in the recent a divers top destination in Asia. It seems strange that such a tourist paradiseshould have been first setup as a prison.

Koh Tao's reputation increased and the designation is one of December Attracted by the beautiful coral reefs surrounding KoTao, and the escalation in recreational scuba diving, a number of companies set up a scuba resorts transformed into quite luxurious. These were the twin brothers Khun Oh & Khun Ueam who got to Koh Tao by boat from the next island of Kohphangan, Ko island was isolated once again. This was in the same year that the first settlers started to claim a large piece of terrain on what is currently known as Sai Ree Beach. These were the twin brothers Khun Ueam and Khun Oh who reached KoTao by a small boat from the neighbouring island of Ko Phangan.

Koh Panghan. While visting Kho Tao for all. It seems wierd that such a tourist tropical island to accommodate to the needs of all these new customers and they too, quickly started to open their own businesses to fulfill all the clienteles demands. Around 1947, then Khun A-Paiwong, Thailands then Prime Minister, asked for and received a royal pardon for Ko Tao's prisoners and with thanks to a gracious act by His Majesty the King.
