We've just stayed here for the last week. Very relaxing place. The kids practically lived in the pool. Hotel has a taxi and travel booking service. There are plenty of sitting and hammock areas. The bungalows are set in the hillside which is pretty steep. Not the best place to be if you have mobility issues. Lots of lovely trees... More

Stayed here for 7 nights. The positive things: the view over Had Yao bay is perfect and the best. The houses are placed perfectly towards the sea and privately so that no one looks into the bungalow. The restaurant at the resort serves good dishes, the prices are fair. The staff are friendly, but not in the normal Thai-style. The... More

When we first arrived at high life we were really disappointed as when we entered our room it was filthy!! There were black hairs in the bathroom and all over the bed and the lock didn't even close the door properly and a ladder to climb up to the top ! Luckily they gave us another room, which was a...

If you want peace and relaxation come here, if u want the party scene prob best to look elsewhere. The pool was great and easy access to the beach. Some reviews say it's steep but it's fine! Foods good and not to pricey. Staff friendly. Rooms were ok bathroom was very average. If your a light sleeper maybe take so... More

We came from north Sairee Beach, Koh Tao which was very concentrated and poorly planned but a fantastic beach. Suratthani beach in Koh Phangan was a beautiful, quiet with lots of space. (The beach swimming is not great). High Life is superb. We loved our bungalow. It had an ocean outlook (but there are a few that are right on... More

The best place to relax and have a rest. Delicious food, very nice guys. Close to the beach. However be ready to sweam in special boots as there are many rocks and marine urchins. Shops with fruits are far away. The place to stay there and just relax.

We stayed here for 5 nights in peak season. On arrival the surrounding gardens and view of the beach blew us away, it's tucked in the hill leading down to the beach, really beautiful! The front of house is run by a family and it shows as the welcome is warm and friendly. We had a sea view room which... More

We absolutely loved High Life. It was our favourite hotel of the trip. The staff were so professional, and the location is perfect. The beach is beautiful and offers a variety of dining options. The pool at High Life is the best I have ever seen, and we spent hours lazing around and soaking up the sun. The team were... More

We enjoyed our stay up until our last night. The location was nice and the view was stunning. However on our last full day we asked for our laundry to be done since they offered the service. It was supposed to be 50 baht a kilo but we were charged 120 baht for a small plastic bag of clothes. Once... More
