Welcome to... O Chai Bungalows

We have recently opened O' Chai Resort in Sairee Beach. All rooms offer en suite shower & toilet plus a powerful fan.

These units vary in size but are all very basic with fans only and no frills. The largest bungalows are the newest but the same old linen and curtains seem to be found in all rooms. At least the rooms are clean.

wine & dine

The attached King Crab Restaurant offers a great fish BBQ every night. Choose your fish and dine on tables set out directly on the beach. Vibe Bar provides the drinks, creating a chilled and easy atmosphere to watch the sun go down. Rooms are located very close to the bar and restaurant and although the bar has a relaxed feel, usually closing by midnight, the occasional party sees it open louder and later.

location and attractions

Koh Tao : Sairee Beach


This is a great location with its proximity to all that Sairee has to offer. Snorkels are available for checking out the shallow, yet often decent snorkelling off Sairee beach. O-Chai also has the cheapest massage around (200B for a long time) in its simple beachside sala.
