“great hangout”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2009

Blue Wind is a great hangout on Sairee Beach. It's got a huge wooden terrace with lounging cushions, good music and nice food. It's very popular and it's very easy to spend the whole day on the terrace of Blue Wind without even seeing the time pass.
The staff is not that great. There is one guy, Win, and one girl, I don't know her name, who are very sweet and smiling. All the others are totally indifferent, cold, apathic and unwilling to serve the guests. They seem to hate their job and hang around lazily, waiting for the day to be over. We spent 10 days there, and they still showed no sign of recognition!

As for the rooms/bungalows: we tried the second cheapest ones, at 800 baht. They're nice from the outside, but very basic and small, not worth 800. Our neighbor had a family of cockroaches in his mattress.
There is also quite a lot of noise from the next door Beach Bar.
The more expensive bungalows are always full, but they're not that much better. Then there are aircon rooms at 1300. They're big and have a TV but everything is worn down.
If you want your room cleaned, you specifically have to ask for it, otherwise they don't. You don't get clean towels and sheet either.
Next time we came back to Koh Tao we chose another accommodation and just came to the Blue Wind Bakery and Restaurant to have drinks and food

By the way the yoga centre at Blue Wind is very good!

Beutiful located on the beach. And very nice atmosphere on the beach, when it gets dark
They have their own bakery there..
But the room really smells ! Old , dirty [---] .... MOLDE !
We stayed for 3 nights - becouse we could not find anything else in Koh Tao. And the price here was low .
They did not clean the room when we was there.
Horrible hard beds . Aunts evrywhere and in the food . And it was sad - that there was so many aunts around the food- because that was really good. Until there was 1 billions flies all over it .
Dirty on the floors and in the bath. No soap, even in the toilet. We had to buy cleaning stuff on a 7 eleven - and clean ourselfs ! To manage to survive there.
And a guy / man / owner got angry - if you asked for a towel ! We were 4 ! And the kids was swimming all the time - so we really needed some .. The girls staff there was very nice and friendly - with especially the kids
When we was leaving , they also said we had only paid for 1 night .. until we showed them the paid bill. for the 3 nights..Will never return here

  • Liked — the location

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2008

The homemade bakery is well worth visiting. Amazing croissants and muesli fruit salads for breakfast and traditional thai dinners and western food all very reasonably priced.

The resort itself isn't too clean a place to stay. Was paying 450 B a night with another person for a spacious but dark room, TV (unnecessary) and fan. Although I could cope with the fan in July, it was still quite hot and my friend found it too hot to sleep. So bear that in mind if you're a light sleeper.
The bathroom was small and not the cleanest. Wet room shower (common in Thailand) but could have been worse. However, good location and nice outdoors.
Better can be found for similar if not cheaper prices. Worth renting rooms between larger groups in general (e.g 4) as it makes accommodation a lot cheaper.
