Couldn't have Asked for a better place. Great location. Not on the beach but a two min walk to the beach so you don't need to deal with all the noise and commotion. Very nice pool- breakfast was included in our stay. Very friendly staff. The only negative thing I would say but we dealt with was low water pressure... More

Went for Koh Tao Simple Life Resort for a getaway week with a friend in the end of November. Service was good and location was really nice in the heart of Sairee Village. The rooms were also clean and breakfast was included but it was quite expensive compared to other accommodation options during low season. But if you're going for... More

Really had a great time here. Staff was really helpful with everything. Everything is clean and well maintained. Also the shuttle service works perfect!! It's very close to all the shops, bars and beach. But not to close that you hear the parties that go on into the early hours. I really will return here!

Big bed, clean room, helpful staff, descent pool... There isn't much not to like here. I even liked breakfast with an assortment of Asian food along with traditional American breakfast like bacon, eggs and pancakes. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

My second visit to Koh Tao, Lovely clean smart rooms, Very good Diving facilities, but most of all very friendly staff and general atmosphere made my break the best I've ever had. I would go back in a heart beat. Accommodation and facilities are available everywhere, but you can't put a price on the way you are made to feel... More

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.
