Simple Life is a good choice if you want to stay in a central location at the city, walking distance to all main restaurants end 5 minuts walking to Sairee Beach. The hotel, after some trips around Thailand it was great finding people talking good englis at the reception and being able to help. I booked a superior room at... More

Really enjoyed our two night stay here. Excellent service that they pick you up at pier from ferry - without prior arrangement. Staff very helpful and you can book excursions from hotel which was great. Room very nice and location very good. Would recommend and would stay here again.

Our stay at Simple Life did not get off to the best of starts after a bad crossing from Koh Phangan and our transfer, which had been prebooked, not being there. When we reached the meeting point at the end of the pier we actually saw them drive past us and leave, we looked around but there was no other... More

Stayed here in July for 5 nights. Great customer service. Really clean and modern accommodation. Very close to the main beach and all the nice restaurants. Fizz bar is a must, so relaxing! Had a massage at the hotel and it was bliss. Highly recommend this hotel to all travellers (family, couple, business etc).

This was our final stop on our trip round Thailand, the accommodation was just about okay, not sure if we'd been spoilt in other places that we stayed but we thought the hotel was a bit disappointing. There was building work going on on both sides of the hotel ( not there fault ) the rooms were dated and in... More

This hotel was a good find. If you don't want the whole 'bungalow on the beach' I can recommend this hotel. It has a small pool with a decent number of sun loungers but I spent most of my time at the beautiful beach. The room is clean and the bed is comfortable and big. The staff are helpful and... More

This resort is lovely. It has lots of space in the room. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. I would definitely stay here again as it's walking distance to the beach, night life and shops. However, I would not include breakfast in the price. It was limited food and there were flies all over the food and eating area.... More

This modest resort is located at the heart of Sairee village. Everything is a hop-skip away, from diving schools to good restaurants to shopping. On an island like Ko Tao where scooters are discouraged because of unscrupulous hire companies, this is important. The Simple Life offers good value, with very clean rooms, delightful staff (a special shout out to the... More

This resort had nice rooms, although a little dark. Our bathroom had a slightly unpleasant smell. The grounds could be more tidy. The pool was on the small side, but still nice and clean. The breakfast was good. The resort opens up to the main street of the town. You walk past shops and other accommodation to get to Sairee... More
