PARADISE ISLAND

Koh Toa has retained it's from outside the clienteles demands. In the beginning of 80's brought to KohTao some of the very first visitors from Ko Phanganwho were looking for something innovative away from the masses and crowds who were going mad for the Full Moon parties on KoPhangan. Here they located something more than just a new island to discover and soon the back-packer groups were buzzing about the wonderful newly found island paradise. Mesmerised by the striking crystal white beaches, the back of beyond aura, and of course the low-priced living, back-packers soon came in droves. Arrivals and departures were on the local fishing boats, and even then delays of several days were common. Back to the hammocks and a world of dreams; The boat comes another day . As a result, as its standing for elegant nature, extraordinary marinelife and wonderful landscapes grew, easier access was offered when enhanced and safer boats were brought in to cope with the number of back-packers, being attracted to the island. The name KohTao means Turtle Island; some say that the name is due to the islands shape which is meant to look like an upside down turtle whilst other people claim its from the days when the water around Ko Taowas rich with turtles and the island was their breeding site. Starting withing the first A-Frame coconut and bamboo bungalowson the beachfor twenty Baht a day, to very simple thatched huts, the native Phanganfamilies reacted fast to this arrival of strangers otherwise named Farangs, by adapting to it.

Koh Tao. Attracted by the wonderful coral reefs surrounding Koh Tao, and the growth in sport diving, a number of companies have setup divingbusinesses on Koh Tao, these companies in turn developed exclusive resorts for their clientele, and over the years several of these resorts have become quite elegant. KohTao is petite; 22 square kilometer and half of that too steep to access. Their lives consisted of cultivating coconuts, developing vegetables & fruit and of course nourishing themselves with fishing. In those days reaching Koh Tao was a treacherous boat trip from the nearby islands or the mainland, if and when the weather and seas permitted, but the residents continued to increase steadily all the same, even when the simple life was hard and without much return.
