KT Eco Bottles

Owning a Koh Tao Eco Bottle = free water! Who wouldn’t want free water refills?!?! 

Let’s face it, it gets hot here! Although the weather on Koh Tao can vary, temperatures generally range from 24-35°c throughout the year, with humidity at anything between 60-80%. So it’s very important to stay hydrated, and we always recommend our customers and guests to drink plenty of water. In general, it’s advised that you drink around 3 litres of water per day to stay properly hydrated here, and add an extra half litre for each scuba dive or any short period of strenuous activity. So if go rock climbing, hiking, paddleboarding, or snorkeling etc, you’ll need to bear this in mind. 

Historically, the demand for more and more drinking water meant more and more single-use plastic waste, but no longer! The Koh Tao Eco Bottle is a true island initiative to help collectively reduce the amount of plastic that we consume as an island! 

Koh Tao Eco Bottles are sold at several businesses on Koh Tao, including many dive centres, hostels, resorts, shops, and restaurants. You can purchase one at any of the participating businesses for around 220THB. Once you have it, you can refill for free at any of the companies involved. Each participating business has their name or company logo etched onto the side of the bottle, and with refill locations in Sairee, Mae Haad, and Chalok, it’s generally easy to find somewhere to refill. 

Businesses currently offering free water refills are:

  • Goodtime Adventures
  • Sairee Cottage Diving
  • Roctopus Dive
  • Mojo Divers
  • Apnea Total Freediving
  • Koh Tao Central Hostel
  • Island Travel
  • Scuba Club Diving
  • The Earth House
  • Master Divers
  • Coconut Monkey
  • Assava Diving Resort
  • Bans Diving Resort
  • Sleep Inn Hostel

Most of these businesses are not open 24 hours, of course. So we recommend using your Koh Tao Eco Bottle through the day, and arranging a bulk water order to your bungalow or resort for the evenings. Check out S&S Water, or for shorter stays, you could invest in a refillable 20 litre bottle.
