Value
For over 30 years, Carabao dive resort has been welcoming guests to Koh Tao's quiet, southern bay of Chalok Baan Khao. We have remained at heart a family business but have grown to now include a highly rated Scuba diving school, Thai & international restaurant, cocktail bar, travel & tour agent, and a brand new swimming pool. We have a full range of private Air-conditioned rooms, fan rooms and dormitory, all with views of the beach and across the Gulf of Thailand. Koh Tao's pier town and main nightlife area are no more than 4km's away meaning you can enjoy their delights but also retreat into the chilled, friendly, nature of Chalok village and relaxed hospitality of Carabao.
