Located a stone’s throw away from the town of Mae Haad, Ananda Villa offers travelers an excellent middle ground for accommodations that are both comfortable and affordable on a medium range budget. With a choice of sturdy bungalows or rooms in the newly developed two-tier hotel, guests staying at Ananda have the beach, the town, the shopping and the bars at their fingertips.
Welcome to Ananda Villa Hotel and Bungalows
One of the parts of traveling that people look forward to the most is getting to destination, checking into their room and dumping their belongings so the real holiday can take place. However, those experienced in Southeast Asian travel sometimes feel that actually getting to the accommodation is another journey in itself – and this is what the newer resort of Ananda Villa hopes to eliminate.
Location of accommodation Ananda Villa Hotel
Located a short distance from the pier town of Mae Haad, the resort has been giving guests the combination of being directly on the beach but without being near everyone’s footpath. Once you get off the boat, it takes a mere 5 minutes (depending on the amount of luggage one has, of course!) to walk to Ananda and get yourself settled on Koh Tao. With the beach in front of you and easy access to the more developed parts of the island, it is a great location for travelers who want the social scenes, the shopping and the swimming.
Accommodation at Ananda Villa Hotel and Bungalows
A combination of a hotel and a few bungalows, Ananda Villa is catering towards travelers who are on a slight budget but would prefer not to stay in the more rustic huts that Koh Tao is sometimes known for. Decorated in a simplistic Thai style interior, guests have the option of staying in the partial wooden/partial brick garden bungalows that have either fan or air-conditioning. Another option for accommodation is the modern-Asian styled two level beach-front hotel. Again, the guests have the choice between fan or A/C rooms. The rooms do vary in the number of people they can accommodate, ranging from the individual, couples or groups of friends and family members travelling together. All of the rooms have in-suite bathrooms, hot water showers and a balcony for relaxing.
Things to do at Ananda Villa Hotel and Bungalows
One of the main advantages that comes with staying at Ananda Villa is the location to the social centers of the island. If you walk one minute in one direction, you reach the pier town of Mae Haad where there are many restaurants and bakeries that serve a variety of seafood, European, Chinese, Japanese and, naturally, Thai food. Ananda is located near a delicious family-run Thai restaurant. There are also several bars along the road and along the beach. Once you have explored the streets of Mae Haad, you can take another short walk the other direction and reach the beginning of Sairee Beach, the longest stretch of beach on Koh Tao. There the traveler can continue to satisfy their shopping and dining needs.
If outdoor activities are more what you are looking for, Mae Haad is a great place to sign up for daily snorkeling tours, motorbike rentals, fishing trips and diving. Koh Tao is widely known for diving and there are numerous dive schools that the traveler can investigate and find the best one that suits their needs. Of course, some people are more than content to spend their days on the beach sunbathing or reading a book.
With the many tidy and nicely presented room options and a location right in the heart of Koh Tao, Ananda Villa is destined to be a well-known accommodation option. The friendly staff at Ananda Villa will gladly assist each of their guests in order to make their time on the island and in Thailand memorable.
