View Rock Resort is one of Koh Tao's more unusual and interesting ocean side resorts, situation in one of the island's more remote bays.The resort bungalows are built into the steep hill, providing spectacular views out over the ocean towards the rising sun. The reception, restaurant and public areas are down below by the water, built in among the many huge house-size boulders. Huge rocks are all around, and their strange and interesting forms are the dominant feature here.
In November 2007 dive instructors Per-Arne Bjorneng and Dienne opened the dive centre in View Rock Resort. They offer a variety of diving courses ranging from simple, one-day introductions to full PADI Divemaster courses.
The resort can also arrange longtail boat trips around Koh Tao, or for snorkelling or other trips.
