Agoda Hotel Guide for Koh Tao

20 Jun 2021

When planning a trip to Koh Tao, you may want to use an internet booking service like Agoda. Agoda is the fastest-growing online travel booking websites in the world. Since its inception as an e-commerce start-up in Singapore in 2005, it has grown to offer a global portfolio of 2 million assets in over 200 countries and territories. Agoda provides travellers with quick access to a wide range of luxury and inexpensive hotels, apartments, condominiums, and villas to suit all budgets and travel needs.

 

Why Koh Tao?

Koh Tao which means ‘Turtle Island’ lives up to its name, being the scuba diving destination of choice here in Thailand. The perfect white sandy beaches which surround the hilly 21 km² islands are also home to the crystal clear waters of the Gulf of Thailand. The vibrant coral reefs are home to a range of colourful sea creatures, including turtles, of course.
The island is 55 km north of Koh Samui and was ‘discovered’ in the early 1980s, it now supports a wide selection of hotels, budget guesthouses to beach bungalows and all the way up to five-star luxury resorts. It is an idyllic paradise island.

Why use Agoda?

Agoda might offer lower costs than other websites, making it a competitive option worth investigating. It may be faster and more convenient to pay for your reservation in advance rather than remembering to do so when you arrive at the venue. The well-known website Agoda for Thailand is hosted in a range of hotels. For loyal clients, they provide an app, reward plans, and coupons.

 

Reviews

Fortunately, online forums such as Agoda allow hotel guests to rate their accommodations. In contrast to the proprietors, who will provide you information based on all the nice stuff they have, they tell you what they have directly experienced as customers from the perspective of a buyer. Feedback might help you discover more about a hotel when you're trying to choose one. Almost every property now has at least one number assigned to it. As a potential customer, you can compare and contrast each of the papers that have previously been produced and assess whether a topic that has been identified is a problem for you based on the words of others.

 

Guarantee

The possibility of a mix-up or unforeseen circumstance throwing a kink in your vacation booking plans will always exist. No booking agency is immune to such mishaps, which is why you should inquire about any money-back guarantees and, if possible, whether their customer service staff can accommodate you or refund you. Using Agoda ensures your reservation, which is preferable to going directly to the hotel and finding out there are no rooms available. If you make your reservation via Agoda, you will be able to contact them at any time if you are unable to speak with the property for any reason.

Filters

You can quickly compare other hotels for sale in the same area or on a budget by utilizing the Agoda filtering system. Instead of searching for a large and wide venue, which could take some time, you will be presented with a list of such accommodations that meet the criteria or are located in the area where you want to stay.

 

Costs

To see the full expense, Agoda includes both taxes and fees in the bill, a positive improvement, you used to have to wait to check your booking. Please notice that properties often attach guest taxes or added fees to the bill when you arrive. This can be written anywhere immediately during the booking time, please ensure you review it. 

Negatives

It will take a bit longer to get hotel/accommodation booking clearance. When compared to other websites that offer similar-type lodging, the prices can be a little higher. Great bargains also necessitate a large number of people viewing them at the same time, so you'll have to book or take care of where they're going quickly.

 

The best way

One of the greatest ways to use Agoda is to book a room for a short length of time, such as a few days if you don't want to put in a lot of effort before visiting. When you arrive at the hotel, you can then instantly extend your stay.
