This resort is absolutely beautiful. The beach out front is perfect for tanning and the resort supplies comfortable beach-side chairs on a private piece of land. The water isn't great for swimming; it's more for fishing boats but the view is stunning. Their restaurant is right on the beach and is the perfect place to watch the sunset; food is... More

Centrally located, yet away from the main crowd and bars for a quieter night. But you can't really avoid the occasionally loud noises from late night party goers if you are staying in the White Room. The Dive Centre is just a few steps away. Opt for the White Room if you have extra budget, because it is just perfect,... More

We found Sairee Cottage online and sent an inquiry re: options for our family of four. Within 12 hours received a response from Mel with details, pricing and answers to my multiple questions. My wife and I have been diving for more than 20 years, while we wanted to get our two teenage sons Open Water certified. Well, our initial... More

So I have been to Koh Tao now 4 times and every time I walked by Sairee Cottage Village I always thought I should check it out and finally the timing worked. We stayed in one of the poolside rooms that was modern and very comfortable. The pool was so nice and refreshing and the beach is about 50 feet... More

We had a really great experience here! The staff at the dive center were especially lovely. Shout out to Kaylie who held my hand throughout my first dive in the sea because I was so scared - thanks to her by the end of that day I couldn't wait for my next dive! Thank you so much!

Attention! No prebooking, you can only book directly on location. We stayed in the beach cottage, which they call "purple room/beach". The cottage is one of the two cottages they have directly on the beach. This cottage is fantastic!! Clean room, nice big bed and FANTASTIC location! 10 m from the water and with a nice terrace facing the water... More

This was my first stop on my 2 month journey through SEA. I was meeting a family member here, who'd been on the island for 6 weeks and was diving with Sairee/PADI, so I was going here off their recommendation - and I wasn't disappointed!

I debated whether I should write this as I'm not generally a negative person, but after a few weeks I find I'm still thinking back on my poor experience here and feel it's only right to warn others.
