This place is so beautiful, excellent location, clean and just all around perfect! I had an amazing experience with the staff and the pool and swim up bar are so nice.

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! We stayed in on of the 2 bed bungalows for over a week. Room was... More

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. I stayed all over the island during my two week trip, and by in large had a wonderful time at every hotel... More

Boyfriend took me here for my first trip to Thailand. We stayed in one of the bungalows on the beach. It was the stuff that you think only exists in movies. It's nothing fancy but to lay in the hammock on our private patio and watch the waves come in and out was heaven. Far enough down on the beach... More

I am sad to have to write a fairly negative review on sairee cottage diving, as it absolutely did not live up to our expectations, considering previous reviews and the price. Myself and partner only had 2 full days in Ko Tao and were keen to try the one day diving which, I was told my the assistant manager to... More

Sairee beach Cottages are located in the middle of Sairee beach and we were worried we were going to be surrounded by the party scene, but it was anything but. although you are extremely close to everything( bar, restaurants, shops etc.) you still feel very separated as the cottages are amongst the palm trees and on the beach and feel...

I stayed for one night in a 500tbt bungalow. For a solo traveller it was excellent. It was a fan room. The fan was very powerful and had adjustable settings.

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
