The Rocks is a fabulous place to stay if you want to be near Sairee Beach but have a hillside hideaway to retreat to.
My wife and I stayed for 5 days in March. Before we booked I had seen the fabulous reviews but also took the time to check out the website and even called Janine. The Rocks presents itself to be exactly what it says on the tin. Some recent reviews refer to lack of facilities, etc - but that is not our experience. Yes - there is a steep walk up the hill and yes there is no pool bar or snack bar - but if you want those you are booking the wrong place! Wifi was never an issue.
You're on a hillside in beautiful Koh Tao, overlooking the sea in your own private villa, for less than the cost of a B&B in the UK.
Janine was really helpful, the villas were kept spotless and the infinity pool - not massive - but who cares when you are the only ones around the pool?!
Would recommend staying at the Rocks - especially having seen the rest of the accomodations near Sairee Beach - it knocks spots of all the rest.

Surrounded by lush tropical jungle and stunning sea views, our four boutique villas and infinity-edge pool combine a feeling of tranquility and relaxation. Under Swiss and British management the Rocks are proud to be the original boutique villas on Koh Tao. Secluded, but still less than 10 minutes walk from the beach, they are the perfect holiday location for romantic couples, families or groups of friends.
