For the price, this place was not great. It was clean, but certainly not modern and even felt unfinished (especially the bathroom was terrible, poor water pressure and looked like it was still under construction). The TV was a good size and the bed was comfy, but no one is coming to Kho Tao to watch tv in bed. The... More

Simple Life Resort is excellent located close to Sairee Beach, but withdrawn from the noisy street and night life. The rooms match the name of the place, simple, the only luxury is air conditioning, television and minibar, but they are well maintained and cleaned every day. The staff is outstanding; smiling and very helpful. The staff provided excellent support by... More

I stayed 5 days at this hotel and had their deluxe room. It was a large room overlooking the pool. We scuba dived each day so we did not spend much time at the resort. That said, I very much recommend this hotel not only on its amenities, but also on the service provided by its staff. Thanks for the... More

Amazing rooms with a beach view. Extremely clean, towels and bedsheets have been changed after one day, excellent service, friendly staff (especially Sam). 5 minutes walking distance from lots of restaurants and shops, my first dive is tomorrow but heard nothing but good things about the experience

Hotel is so clean and well kept! Feel like I'm in luxury with a beach/sunset view. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful, especially Sam, Jo and Sophie. BBQ on the first night was a great way to start out stay and to get chatting with other backpackers. Would definitely recommend and can't wait to start my diving course.

The bathroom had some flaws but in total the accomodiation was excellent. It was very spacious though we have booked a standard room. It was pretty quiet at night so we slept through the night. Very kind service by the way.

We booked this hotel via Simple Life Divers and it turn out to be an excellent hotel to stay at. We booked a triple room which still had ample space with a balcony. The staff were great and helpful, and even picked us up from the pier since we arrived in different time without additional charges. Location is great too,... More
