5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2008

Utopia Suites are located a very short walk from the Songserm ferry pier and on the same road as loads of shops and restaurants in Mae Haad town, but at the quiet end of the road so it was never noisy at night. When my husband and I arrived we were met by the really friendly staff and shown to our room which was large with airconditioning. The beach outside the hotel isn't the best beach on the island as it is a harbour beach, and there were quite a few bits of glass in the sand. However we found that there was quite good snorkelling by the rocks at the end of the beach. It is only 15 minutes walk to Sairee beach, which is gorgeous and really quiet with loads of chilled out beach bars and cheap restaurants to laze around in.

Utopia Suites is one of the few hotels that doesn't have a dive centre (although they can arrange dive packages for you), which was good as when were trying to book hotels we found a lot wouldn't accept non-divers. As the island is really catered towards divers it is really relaxed during the day when most people are off diving. In the evenings the town livened up but it still seemed really chilled out and not at all seedy like some other areas of Thailand. It wasn't very touristy either which was nice, definitely my favourite island I have been to in Thailand.

The pictures from the booking website did not show the rooms that were on top of the restaurant which was where we stayed. The walk to the hotel was filled with potholes and moped bikes and is located at the end of the road at Mae Haad beach. However, there is no beach to speak of. Overall, the price was great for the value. The service was friendly, easy and good. The room was clean and sufficient. Electricity kept turning off so it was quite warm at times.
