We stayed there for our honeymoon trip at January.
There was a free shuttle car waiting for us at the pier (5-10 minutes drive).
The resort is located on the mountain and so has great sea view. This is also a bit of an issue because it is outside the main area of koh tao which is about 5-10 minutes drive from there (impossible to walk at night). There is almost nothing in the near area, that makes the hotel almost isolated.
The entire resort is very nice and looks beautiful at night when all the lighting is on.
The room was nice and big, we actually got a huge room. The breakfast was good, not a lot of options but more than enough.
The hotel has a nice but small pool, with the best view you can imagine.
There is no beach access, and the nearest beach is about 5 minutes drive.
We had some electricity issues several times during our stay, the power was off for few seconds/minutes and then came back on, i am not sure if this is a specific problem to the hotel or is it a general problem in the island.
Wifi was ok, signal was a bit weak.
There is a free shuttle to the center twice a day, so that was useful.
The room has a small safe. We had a feeling that the room is not very safe because the door lock is very basic and can be opened easily. we had some concern leaving our stuff in the room.
When we used a taxi they charged between 200-400 BHT per one direction (400 during the evening for 5 minutes drive...) .
We enjoyed our stay and we recommend it. You need to consider the location and if this is not a big issue for you, you will love it. Enjoy :)

Thank you for your many kind words and comments. We are always looking to improve our services and resort. For that reason we have actually installed security cameras in key areas of the property. Some of the rooms already have extra security locks and we are in the process of ensuring them in all rooms.
The location is in my opinion our key selling point. It is such a small island and even though we are "far" away we are still so close. Most of our guests book because of our view and it being so nice and quiet, so it is sometimes hard to understand that the location is mentioned as a drawback and something one has to live with.
* We are not on the beach
* We are about 15 minutes by foot from Sairee Village
* We have a partner motorbike rental shop right next to us that offer very fair terms and NEVER cheat anyone
* We have two free shuttles daily to Sairee Village
* Taxis are available at fair prices also
We hope that clears up our location (and this is also VERY clearly described on our website) and advise you NOT to book if you want to stay right on the noisy beach or on town.
