Sadly this resort has fallen into severe disrepair and I would warn fervently against even considering staying here. After taking full payment for our 4 night stay, we were shown to our room which was quite simply not worth a quarter of the price we payed. Negotiating fruitlessly with the stubborn staff, being refused a conversation with the manager and... More

Stayed for 2 nights in a deluxe aircon beach zone room. The rooms required a refurbishment, very dated. The door to the rooms didn't shut properly (it locked but gap between frame and door) meant Mosquitos and other bugs could get in to the room. The rooms didn't feel very secure in general, no safe provided in rooms. Pool and... More

The location is superb and some years ago this hotel must have been very nice. It seems like the vegetation is taking over, the buildings are lacking maintenance and the service is not what it should be. The reception is also the place where the staff is eating, feeding children, watching TV and smoking. It is frustrating a place with... More

We spent 2 weeks in this resort (mountain view bungalow) and I have to say that the resort is only average. The cleaning - which we observed first hand one time - is not very deep (I particularly did not appreciate how they take all the sheets and pillows off putting them on the floor and then they put them...

This place is amazing!!! We stayed in the Paradise Zone, which is the part of the resort that is up on the hill with a view. And WoW!!! What a view it is! From the eating area and the infinity pool, you look out over the lush hills and green-blue waters that Koh Tao is famous for. For the price... More

This island is trying to be sustainable, only ruined by tourists who live in a zombie consumer world. It is a wild climate, with all sorts of bugs. If you are not prepared then stay at home. It is excellent value for money if you want to dive, walk/trek, peace and quiet. Not for families, especially those who cannot entertain... More

We chose this resort because I was diving with an outfit nearby and they recommended it as the more "posh" option because it had air conditioning. We saw our room before agreeing to take it. It was basic but appeared clean. The hotel picked us up from our 1st hotel on a different part of he island which was very... More
