We wandered around Koh Tao for a few hours looking for accomodation and were disappointed, it's very expensive and most places aren't worth it. We decided to splurge and got the bungalow at Sairee Cottage that is directly beside the pool. We stayed for four days, and loved it. The swim up bar has an extensive beer menu and its... More

Great diving school, awesome crew, fantastic atmosphere. Diving with them was pure pleasure. Sairee Cottage in Koh Tao is my favourite place in Thailand so far. Some day I'll come back. Highly recommend!

We found the hotel to be quiet basic for a 3star hotel, no soap, no hairdryer, no hangers in wardrobe, cleaners did not service our room even when we hung notice on door, drain in shower slow to drain, room was quiet nosey with cockerels and dogs barking early mornings, nice pool area and loungers.
