We enjoyed our stay at the simple life resort. The Hotel is not magical but it is clean and well maintained. It has an excellent location and a good restaurant. The staff were very friendly and helpful and even arranged a taxi for the 6 am ferry. Good value for money and I would be happy to stay at the... More

We had a lovely stay at Simple Life and felt it was decent value for money. Our room was clean and spacious and the grounds were also well kept. The staff were very helpful for us, packing our breakfasts to take with us as we were on early scuba diving trips every morning. The people we were diving with said... More

After a long 25 hours of train and boat travel, we decided to spend a bit extra and stay at a resort for a night. The room was clean, comfortable, and provided us a relaxing day. Other resorts nearer to the beach are comparable, but lower in price because the area is noisier.

We arrived to this resort and the only problem we had was with the staff, specifically reception. When we arrived they did not have our reservation that we previously booked and paid for with Expedia. The girl gave us a hard time about us booking it properly and insisted she didn't have the reservation and for us to call Expedia,... More

Stayed in a twin room with my brother for 3 nights in September, for some much needed R & R after full moon partying on Koh Phangan. We stayed in a basic twin room for the first two nights, which was decent if slightly noisy from the adjoining bar (the only room which adjoins the bar). Our final night was... More

Friendly staff, huge bathroom, good maintenance. Breakfast is quiet good. Breakie box is provided if you go morning dive. Compare to other accommodation on Koh Tao. This has value for money. Some downsides.. Simple life dive shop is 5 mins drive, ask taxi for pick up/drop. Ground floor unit is dark and have to put curtain all the time for... More

Like pretty much every other reviewer here, we absolutely loved the Simple Life Resort. It's right in the middle of town so you're surrounded by the action and the beach is only a 5 minute walk away. We stayed in a deluxe room which was absolutely massive with an abundance of lighting features. The lady on the front desk during... More

We stayed here for 4 nights at the start of Oct and loved it here. Not only is the hotel great Ko Tao is also fantastic and a beautiful island. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. They collected and dropped us from the pier for free upon arrival and departure which was great and hassle free. The pool is... More

We took a standard boutique room which was very big and spacious with a nice little sit out . The room was very neat and the housekeeping staff did a great job of cleaning the room everyday. The breakfast buffet was good and the restaurant staff were very helpful and friendly. They went out of the way to help you... More
