My friend and I stayed here for 9 nights just recently and we were delighted at how lovely our experience was! Upon a arrival is an impressive view at reception - like wow! Our room was a little shack, very neat and tidy. On the walk down I felt like I really was in a secluded tropical paradise. However, if... More

Only stayed for one night but was very impressed. Had a/c in my room which had a great view and water pressure was fine. If I could pick one bad thing it's the walk down to your rooms, but I found it great excercise. Short taxi or scooter ride to great food and night life.

Though they seem like a 4* hotel it's likely they need a update. Our check in was not so friendly and when we checked out was the same. The cleaning staff is really friendly though. Would not stay here again.

I booked a room to stay and a day before my daughter ended up in hospital on koh phangan. I had paid the room and they wouldn't cancel and charged me the whole amount (7 days) without me being there. When I tried to discuss on the phone, very very rude staff who hung up on me and them my... More

Shocking don't stay there. No A/C or water pressure from the very start and after I brought it up with the rude owners the second time they didn't offer to help fix it they just abused us and said if we don't like it get out which we did! Never again... The French owner threatened us with violence. Absolutely shocking

I was shocked to read the many bad reviews. Either Thipwimarn has heard them loud and clear and is making changes or many of them are unwarranted. We found Thipwimarn after walking from the pier all the way up the hill. If you haven't been to Koh Tao, be prepared this is a hard island to navigate because of the... More

We urgently needed a place to stay and having left a dreadful dirty excuse for accommodation called Treetops Sanctuary we were happy to pay for 9 nights at the Thipwimarn. Big mistake. After we had agreed a room the lady in charge told us that the restaurant was not open that evening due to electrical maintenance. As we unpacked we... More

We came to the Thipwimarn Resort with high expectations as it was the most expensive place we stayed during our three month trip. When you arrive the view of the sea is absolutely stunning, and the staff at the front desk are very friendly and helpful, as are the boys who carry your luggage down to your room for you.... More
