If you do not like to walk in the lush , go somewhere else . If you bring huge luggage (20-30 kg) with you to the room , it is going to be a little problem . For me I love this style of living. So rustic . Room is clean and well equipped . I did not bring much because I flew from Bangkok and I only spent 4 nights here . I do not wear heals to Island. If you like luxuries , go to Samui Island . I think thisIsland is good for Hiking and Snorkeling or Diving . Teenagers will love it here .
Stayed here recently for 3 nights. Funky accommodation, little wooden style house with a beautiful sea view all set in a green and leafy/flowery resort. Rustic thai accommodation, quite open to the elements (defo needed our mosquito repellant) whole resort is built on a hill so quite a lot of steps involved but worth it for the views. Beautiful beach area ‘picture postcard’ Koh Tao also has a lot to offer for evening food and drink choices the area is also well known for its ‘Dive School’ options, good for snorkelling.
The place is wonderful, it was our honeymoon, we were so exiting, but the treat us like people disturbing thèm. The staff leave there at the hôtel and let us fêel Like thé place is their place, and we are not welcoming, they don’t are Nice as all thé staff we met In our prévious hotel. We felt very bad There, when we left they don’t even mâke a smile and they drop us 1hour before The boat. I don’t récomend thé place, thaï people are Nice àd they are not Nice at all.
Amazing location (quiet - but in walking distance to town), room (clean, lots of space and well taken care of), staff (really friendly and helpful), beach (nice and also good to snorkel - lots of fishes), breakfast (more then enough. Thank you for the great stay! It was perfect!
My boyfriend and I loved our stay here. At first we were a bit dubious because of the sound coming from the other end of the beach (bars with fire dancers play pretty loud music) but we were pleasantly surprised that we barely heard a thing once in our room. The hotel is located at the very end of the beach (quieter part) but it’s super easy to walk to all of the restaurants and beach bars. We stayed in a treetop villa and it was great. Air con worked well, outside shower was cool. There were a bunch of steps to climb to get to the cottage but we appreciated the exercise. The room came with bug spray too. We ended up extending our stay in Koh tao and decided to stay longer at this hotel. We moved to a white sand villa (less steps to climb). This place was huge and really cool decor. We loved it as much as the tree top villa. This hotel is in a great location (near the action but not fully in it). Great sunsets from the beach. We hired the water taxi guy right next to our hotel to drive us around the island snorkeling for the day. Way better than the overcrowded boat trips. For four stops we paid 2000 baht. We could have negotiated a little less up the beach but we liked Bo (the guys name)- he didn’t seem sketch and filled a cooler up with water for us. Highly recommend a private long tail snorkeling trip over the big boats. So easy to arrange too, but haggle if you need to. Breakfast was our least favorite part of this hotel but not the worst we’ve ever had. Great views but don’t recommend eating here for dinner. Just walk to the awesome local restaurants nearby. We also rented a motorbike and the hotel arranged for us- 200baht a day. They dropped it off and picked it up. Also, free taxi service from the pier (just look for someone holding your sign). We didn’t realize this was even included and got off the boat and saw a man holding our hotel sign so we got in and it was free. Also free transfer back to the ferry. We had a 6am ferry and the hotel graciously made us a to go breakfast that we picked up the night before. Lovely staff, great location, away from the craziness but close enough to everything if you don’t mind a ten minute walk. We’d come back here. …
