The hotel was OK but not great. We took the beachfront bungalows. Diving was a nightmare there (posting a more detailed review separately). The good: - Bungalows are clean, bed was huge and very comfortable. - Aircon, hot shower, safe, mini-fridge in room The bad: - Most beachfront bungalows are not as great as shown in pictures. Ours had a... More

Ended up booking here last minute as I was a British female travelling solo just after the double murder. Security seems good as there are CCTV cameras everywhere. The rooms are very nice and I would say it is one of the more "luxury" places on the island, maybe for the couples and honeymooners. Breakfast and swimming pool are nice,... More

We stayed three nights at the deluxe room, and the staff are super nice and accomodating, the room was clean and spacious, exactly like the pictures show, only one thing was a bummer, while there was plenty of hot water the water pressure was non existant, maybe other rooms at lower floors don't have this problem.

Completed my PADI open water certification last week as part of the Gap 360 Group. It was one of the most challenging things that I have ever done (having a fear of open water...yeah.. I know..) We had quite a difficult group, from varying socio-economic backgrounds with absolutely no experience of diving, most of us hadn't even had a bath.... More

For those visiting Koh Tao in Thailand, Stay away from this place called ¨¨Simple Life . Unless you want to leave with the sour feeling of loosing your belongings by the own staff. Nothing was resolved by the careless resort or the Koh Tao Police.. We lost a very expensive professional camera stolen by the internal staff and it was... More

Simple life resort oh simple life. That was the greeting at the pier as we stumbled bleary eyed off the Catamaran from Chumpong. Ling grabbed all our bags and we were off to Sairee. Our check in wasn't until 2pm but we were unpacked and in our room at 11am with the help of the outstanding reception staff. The room... More

First of all the people who work there are very friendly. The rooms are very big and clean. the swimming pool is nice. The location is good, in the centre, near to the beach and the peer. Don't focus on resorts directly along the beach, those are from less quality.

Simple life resort is located in the center of the tourist area of sairee village. The breakfast buffet is pretty good! Staff at the reception is great and very helpful, staff at the restaurant is a little bit grumpy. The rooms are spacious and clean but the bathroom of our room smelled like sewage sometimes. The pool is nice and... More

Staying tonight at simple life. The rooms are lovely. Restaurant seems good, really close to sairee beach but about 3 minutes walk so Nice and quiet. The poolside area is lovely, great for a mid afternoon chill in the heat. Staff are very sweet. Big thumbs up!

We have stayed here for 4 nights. The rooms we have booked were spacious and very clean. The staff is extremely nice and helpful. Breakfast has a lot of variation except for the fruits. The breakfast box I have received once was very good and full of fresh fruits. The pool is quit small but refreshing and clean although not... More
