Ananda Villa

View at accommodation and beach

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.

Sensi Paradise Resort

resort beach

Welcome to Sensi Paradise Resort Koh Tao

Located just outside of the pier town of Mae Haad, the Sensi Paradise Beach Resort of Koh Tao is one of the longest running higher-end resorts on the island. Having been established over 15 years ago, Sensi is continually striving to make additions to their resort in order to keep it clean and up-dated. While some people may be put off with the idea of being close to the harbor, Sensi Paradise has done a fine job with providing guests an area with a beach for sunbathing, shaded paths for walking and quiet places simply to sit and relax.

Accommodation at Sensi Paradise Resort Koh Tao

With a variety of villas, houses and bungalows to choose from, guests are able to select accommodation based on their style, tastes and budgets. All of the buildings are eco-friendly so the travelers know that they are supporting a business that encourages being environmentally conscious of a fragile ecosystem. All the rooms are tastefully decorated with an Asian décor and a polished hard wood interior. All of the houses and villas have in-suite Western styled bathrooms – some of them located outside for the ‘bathing under the stars’ opportunity in the natural surroundings.

For those who are on more of a budget, some of the houses come with fans as opposed to air-condition; however, you are still given a quality room for your stay. There are several villas that have air-conditioning and can accommodate several guests. These types of villas are ideal for larger groups and, of course, another bed can be arranged in order to accommodate more individuals.

The restaurant at Sensi Paradise Resort Koh Tao

With the restaurant built on a sturdy wooden platform next to the sea, the guests have the pleasure of dining by candlelight in the evening with a clear view of the scattered lights dotted on the coast. Open from the early morning till the late evening, guests have the choice of Thai fare or Western food and diners will be pleased with the freshness and quality of either one. The restaurant has played a major role in many wedding dinners and after parties over the years! Additionally, there is room service available for those who would prefer to have their meal in the comfort of their own villa.

Amenities and Services at Sensi Paradise Resort Koh Tao

Sensi Paradise has plenty of amenities and services for the guests – a lovely swimming pool, laundry service and taxi service to any desired location on the island. The rooms are cleaned daily; however, for the more eco-friendly guests, requests can be made to not have the towels changed on a daily basis in order to save the supply of fresh water on the island. Additionally, since Koh Tao is fairly new to getting steady wireless internet service, Wi-Fi is a bit limited at the resort, so this is something to keep in mind if you need 24/7 access for business or personal use.

Things to do at Sensi Paradise Resort Koh Tao

As Mae Haad is only a 5 minute walk away, guests are able to take in the town by shopping at the local stores, having coffee at the international cafes or walking the extra ten minutes into Sairee Beach – the longest and busiest stretch of beach on the island. In either town, travelers can find places to rent motorbikes, organize snorkeling trips or enroll in diving courses. If beaches are more appealing, guests can put on their walking shoes are make the quick journey to Jansom Bay around the corner. Hiring a long-tail boat is another excellent way to reach other beaches that are more difficult to get to by bike or by foot.

What Sensi Paradise Beach Resort is offering is a place where travelers can relax and partake in leisurely activities while having access to the busier side of Koh Tao. When the traveler has spent the entirety of the day exploring, swimming or playing, the comfort of their luxury villa is just a short distance away.
