A group of us booked the 3 beach side bungalows - they are basic but clean and tidy (although I found the beds too hard!) and you were right by the water as well as being near the excellent kitchen and bar facilities where loads of delicious food and drinks were available at cheap prices. Not far from the shops,... More

LOCATION: Fairly central on beach path, a few metres from the beach. Bungalows offset from the main path in a garden environment, so feels more quiet and private than some other places. FACILITIES: AC double bungalow & AC double + single bungalow . Basic bungalow with windows on all sides. Bed comfortable (fairly soft) and AC worked well. Limited storage... More

We didn't stay in the accommodation or use the dive school. But we did have quite a few dinners and relaxing evenings here. Food is very good, Thai food is best value, western food can be a little more expensive. Best part is relaxing with a beer on their waterfront deck watching the boats at night!

We heard about Sairee Cottage along our travels on a train, and wrote it down as an option for a dive school on our arrival to Koh Tao. Immediately, we knew this was where we wanted to be. The instructors were enthusiastic, welcoming, and clearly very passionate about what they do. Initially we only intended to stay 2-3 nights, ended... More

Whilst travelling around Thailand for a month with my girlfriend in December 2011 we stopped at Koh Tao to learn to dive. Sairee Cottage was amazing. The accommodation was good, a basic cottage which was a short walk from the beach and a good location for all the bars and restaurants, but it was the diving that made it. Our... More

I can't say enough great things about Sairee Cottage. I absolutely LOVED it. I planned on staying for a few days and ended up staying 2 weeks. The bungalows are nice and clean. You are in a great central location and only steps to the water. I did my advanced, wreck specialty and had Sarah and Lil as my guides.... More

Stayed here for 3 nights and would have stayed longer, absolutely loved it. We arrived without a booking and were lucky to get the last available bungalow. We were on a backpacker budget so we took the basic bungalow with twin beds at the back of the resort with fan and cold showers for 400bhat per night. The location is... More

Jut left this gold mine and have left a changed person. Between the fantastic location and the availability of an outstanding SSI certification, this place should be visited by all. The staff as a whole were so friendly and so much fun. They're all very willing to help YOU with anything that arises both on a hospitality and scuba spectrum.... More

Arrived at sairee beach after the over night ferry without any reservations and the sairee cottages were able to accommodate our group of three. The bungalows are in an excellent location on the beach. Close enough to various shops and restaurants yet the bungalows are removed enough away from the noise and bustle of Koh Tao night life making our... More
