I stayed on Koh Tao with 4 friends. Although we did not sleep in the resort, we spent most of our time at Koh Tao Royal resort. Paweelin and Steven, the owners of the resort, are incredibly hospitable and made us feel at home constantly. They both work behind the reception and in the restaurant and are therefore constantly in... More

This was our second trip to the island. After the first visit to the Koh Tao Royal Resort, there was only one choice for our accommodation. Steve, Pawleein and the team are fantastic. The resort may not be a 5 star but you certainly get 5 star treatment. The team went above and beyond the call of duty, even spotting... More

After such a long trek from Bangkok we were given such a warm welcome at Royal Resort and we decided to extend our stay here. When we arrived we were provided with a map and the different areas of the island were explained to us, which was very helpful. The bungalows are near to the beach front and very cosy.... More

Koh Tao Royal Resort is a great place if you are looking for a real Thailand stay experience. The bungalows are pretty much in the forest however only a few steps away from the Mae Haad Beach, which is one of the best beaches to relax in Koh Tao. You can get a free snorkelling experience as the hotel is... More

My boyfriend and I spent 2 nights here at the end of August. The staff were extremely friendly, and the owners were helpful and provided us with information about the island and a map. We stayed in a room with a fan, and whilst the bungalow was really cute and rustic, I do wish we had stayed in an air-con... More

The location is great, the reception and the restaurant being in front of the sea. The bungalows are not that good, old, dirty, the bathroom is quite dilapidated. The sheets are dirty and have holes in them, the mosquito net also. Moreover, the bathroom as well as the room are infested with ants, don't even think about bringing food in... More

We disagree with your review and its lack of accuracy. We respect all our guest privacy whilst they are staying with us. Which is why during the check in guests are informed if they wish the staff to enter the bungalow for cleaning or even simply changing of towels, you are requested to inform the reception staff. Living on a... More

This place is located on the southern end of Mae haad beach where the ferry arrives and can easily walk with luggage. About a 20 minute walk to sairee beach where most of the bars and restaurants are. Beach out the front is shallow and calm and the restaurant overlooks it. The food was great and the chef was so...
