“Nice hotel but that's it”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012 via mobile

Pros:
1. Quiet location but close to the main bars and clubs.
2. 10 min. Walk from the pier
3. Clean and spacious room.

Cons:
1. In our opinion you can find better value for your money.
2. Unlike the rooms, the way from the rooms to the beach looks like someone's back yard. It isn't clean and welcoming.
3. Almost 15 min. Walk from central sairee beach- not a lot but you'll find yourself walking this few times in one evening..
4. Very low shower stream.
5. Wi-fi is available only at the hotel's restaurant.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

We booked the standard studio for 4 nights.
The room was very clean and new.
Kerry at the reception did her best to make it a comfortable stay.
She arranged a guitar player for us when we had to celebrate something.
Even a table on a quiet place on the beach was arranged by Kerry.

The place is located at the beginning of Sairee beach and its not really busy or loud music around In Touch.

Suggestions for the future to increase the comfort I would suggest, some beds on the beach and a fridge in the room with water etc.

We had also Nice room of 1800 baht, but there was no fridge, or complimentary bottle of water which we could expect for that room rate. Girl Kerry from reception was very kind. But she was there only 1 day during our 4 night stay. Staff and thai woman owner was very rude and not helpfull at all. When we asked her something she just completely ignored us, but spoke Fluently english when receiving our money. Showen had Hardy any water en run cold after few minutes. There are Munch better deals in Ko Tao. when we left They offered to take us to boat on THE back of à pick-up truck. On arrival at port,Only About 1 km from hotel, They charged us 400 baht, were à air conditioned taxi only charged us 150 baht from port to hotel.

Lovely place just next to beach but no noise from the beach bar´s so you can sleep very well. Location just next to Koh tao Divers is a nice thing if you´re diving with them. Food in the restaurant is great, especially pad thai chicken was my favourite. I think i ate it almoust every day!
The staff is really friendly and the owner too. Big thanks to Kerry for everything :)

In Touch is a lovely place to stay and has the best location. It's located in the end of the Sairee Beach so it is more peaceful and you can't here all the music from the bars during the night. In Touch restaurant is the best! You can enjoy your meal or have few drinks at the terrace with a beautiful view just right on the beach. The food is very good and reasonable prices. The staff is the most friendly and helpful I've met on my travels. Special thanks for the Thai owner and Kerry who works on the reception. Very friendly and helpful. I am definitely coming to stay again!

This resort is one of Koh Tao's little gems, based in the at the quieter end of the island's main beach means that whilst you are only minutes away from the convenience of shops, restaurants, bars and diving clubs, you can still achieve a restful night in the wonderfully presented and feature full rooms. Booking was very easy and we were given the trust and freedom to pay for our room at our own convenience (we booked one of their best quality lounges). To top things off, the restaurant provides a fantastic view over looking the beach, good quality food, fair prices and free wifi.

There are many other resorts in this area but you will suffer no regrets booking here.

Room Tip: Lots of room price choices but best rooms are a must.

In Touch is absolutely a really nice hotel with large bungalows with and without airconditioning, with excellent value for money. The location could not be better, right in the middle of everything, but no loud music or people during the night. The manager was absolutely really friendly, and the rooms were clean too. I would stay here again for sure!!

Room Tip: Really good airconditioning!
