Where to stay in Ko Phi Phi Don

The harbor area in Ko Phi Phi Don offers the greatest variety of accommodations on the island. Mid-range and high-priced beach resorts and simple hotels remain the norm here, though backpacker-aimed accommodations remain available, often with decent facilities at fair prices. Away from the main tourist areas, accommodations become a little more isolated, a little more exclusive, and a little pricier.
