Each year the ‘Save Koh Tao group’ organizes a two day festival to raise awareness of conservation in Koh Tao. The festival serves to bring the Koh Tao community together, uniting to focus on important issues and having a lot of fun. Past Koh Tao festivals have featured live music and stage performances, lots of food and drinks, competitions, beach games, environmental work and more. It’s a real spectacle and special event, and each year thousands of both Thai and overseas visitors join us on Koh Tao for the festivities.

This year the 2011 Koh Tao festival dates have been set for 25th and 26th March, (so as not to clash with the popular Koh Phangan Full Moon Party the week prior). The festival will take place at the usual site of the ‘Koh Tao Founders Coconut Grove’ towards the north end of Sairee Beach, just a few minutes walk from Simple Life.
On the conservation side of things, the Save Koh Tao 2011 Festival will feature:
This month a competition is taking place to design a commemorative t-shirt, (with a whacking 100,000 baht in prize money), and no doubt you’ll be able to purchase your own tshirt bearing the winning design at the festival.
Plus at the main festival site, special events will include:
Inevitably there will be lots of tasty Thai food stores, beer tents, live music and DJs performing long into the night/early morning, and expect traditional performances from the local community.
The 2011 Koh Tao Festival is sure to be a lot of fun, so make your way to the island on the 25th and 26th March to enjoy this unique event.
Simple Life Resort is very close to the site of the 2011 Koh Tao festival. It’s only a short stroll along the beach or road to reach the event.
Each year the Koh Tao Festival has attracted increasing numbers of visitors, and this year again we expect to be quite busy for accommodation around the dates of the festival. If you do want to stay at our Koh Tao Resort at that time, our advice is to get in touch sooner rather than later!
