I love staying here as its quiet, beautiful views of the ocean & away from the world. A good place just to bring your hammock & read, write or just relax in the sun. Not to mention an exquisite massage with experienced Ayurvedic practitoners. The food is simple and very good, with a special touch and Ayurvedic or a choice...

The location if the resort is its biggest advantage, its at the end of the main beach so you can walk to all the restaurants and bars and to the main road. We had a standard bungalow, which was basic. The bed was really hard and the AC was pretty loud. We had always many mosquitos in the bathroom which...

This was a great find. Not the cheapest but in a nice quiet location on north end of Sairee Beach within a 10 minute walk of all the main bars & restaurants. We stayed in a deluxe with sea view. Stunning sitting on the balcony watching sunset each evening. Very friendly staff & communication with Nicole prior to arrival made...

Very easy to book and pay by mail. Got an reciept for the payment by card 2 secs after the booking. Got an amazing bungalow with seaview, which made our stay even more delightful. We travelled with a 6 month old infant, so we spend most of the time at the shaded balcony enjoying our meals, the view and our...

Great location right on the beach - a short 10 minute stroll into Town!. Great staff - we were well looked after by the restaurant staff. Great breakfast and cocktails. We were in a standard bungalow with AC - an absolute must - ok but if your budget stretches go for a deluxe with sea view. HIGHLY RECOMMEND DAVID ROSE...

These bungalows are super beautiful and great location away from the parties. You can walk along the beach to the main area or even the pier. Lots of food and shops. I highly recommend doing the snorkeling trip you can get at this resort for 500-600 bhatt. It's a full day full of 5 snorkeling stops with a final stop...

If you're going to Koh Tao then Palm Leaf Resort is the place to be. We spent about a week in there in the seafront bungalow and it was absolutely amazing. You can watch the sunset from the deck sipping coconut juice and enjoy all the incredible colours changing in the sky. The Bungalow (deluxe) was very spacious and impeccably...

We came upon Palm Leaf while walking along Sairee Beach searching for a new place to stay. It is perfectly located down the beach - a convenient balance between the fun in the village and the quiet, more relaxed side of Sairee. Sunbeds lined the beach and were only for customers, which was really nice. Perfect for the sunset every...

We were planning to stay 2 nights, but end up staying 6 nights! Palm leaf resort has the best of both worlds: it is on the quiet cosy nord end of Sairee beach, but only a 10 min walk to the more lively Sairee village with a lot of restaurants, bars and shops. The rooms are spacious and clean. Every...
