“Great location if you want some peace and quiet.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2012 via mobile

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 5 nights whilst completing our Open water course with Roctopus Dive. Literally, next door to the dive shop and also Mint Kitchen, Suksamran Villas were ideal for us. Pretty basic accommodation but clean and functional. Aircon, fan, cable tv and wifi available. They'll also do laundry for a small fee. If you're looking for something within walking distance of the bars/beach but far away enough to get peace and quiet, this could be for you.

We stayed in studio 121 for 2 months. Location is good and quiet, because it's little bit further from all the bars and restaurants in Sairee beach (about 10 min walk). Restaurants next door (Mint Kitchen & Taste of Home) offer delicious thai & western food, so it wasn't always necessary to walk down to the "centre" to eat. We also had a small kitchen, where we were able to cook ourselves. Wifi was also working well. Everything (water, electricity, gas, internet) was included in the price, so we didn't have to worry about any bills. Cleaning lady also came 2 times a week, which was great.

Suksamran Villas is also next to the Island Muay Thai, so if you come Koh Tao for training, it's a great place to stay. Roctopus diving school is also next door.

We liked staying there a lot. We also stayed in other apt for few days in a newer building, which was also very nice. Overall Suksamran Villas was good value.

We stayed here for a month from mid February and had a lovely stay. The ladies who run the place (and Kanako who manages the bookings) were friendly and very helpful.
The villa itself was fantastic & had everything we needed(great air con, DVD player, flat screen tv and kitchen). It's about 10 mins walk to the main drag in Saree which ensured a nice quiet sleep :)
We would definitely recommend staying here and will be back if we make it to tao again.
They have a new website which is a little hard to find so here it is!

we were recommended suksamran by our dive shop, roctopus. what a fantastic recommendation! suksamran is about a 5-10 minute walk from beach road and/or sairee beach. it's quiet and away from the late night parties down the hill. each "room" is actually a little apartment, complete with kitchen, western style bath, living room and plasma tv. it was a wonderful place to chill out and recharge one's batteries but is definitely worth renting a motorbike if you don't feel like schlepping up and down the hill.

the ladies who work there are incredibly nice and accommodating and help out with whatever you may need. our room was cleaned daily and always properly maintained. wonderful option for accommodation on koh tao.

We stayed here in March 2011, booked the apartment based on minimal reviews and were not dissapointed when we arrived. Staff were unobtrusive and helpful. Room was spacious, comfortable & clean. We has an upstairs apartment in the newest building. Large bedroom & seprate living/dining area & kitchen. Large bathroom.

It is worth noting that this is not a hotel so if you want breakfast you will have to either cook it yourself or wander down the road & buy it. Also you will need to clean up after yourselves, although we were pleasantly surprised when we came back & the appartment had been cleaned.

The hotel was up a hill about a 5 minute walk from town & in a nice quite area. All in all well worth the stay.

We didn't strictly stay here. We were wandering the streets at 10 o clock at night with 4 rucksacks, 2 pushcahairs our 3 yr old and our teething 1 yr old, looking for somewhere to stay after a bad experience at our original hotel. The owners of these apartments who live abroad but happened to be over staying for 2 months and walking past us, saw our distress and very kindly came and offered us a bed for the night. They also had 2 children and said they'd hate to think of us wandering around with the kids. It was so so kind and really appreciated. The accommodation itself was amazing, especially as we are travelling on a real budget. Modern contemporary decor, huge soft bed, fridge, cooking facilities, flatscreen TV, cable, dvd and wi fi. It was the best night's sleep I've had on the whole trip! Lovely gardens too and away from the hustle and bustle of the street. The place is usually run by Suksamran's sister I think, a very friendly lady.
A huge thanks to Suksamran and Dennis for their huge kindness and hospitality.

I stayed here also in 2008 for 6 weeks and now also for 6 weeks.
We stayed in an appartment with one bedroom and living room.

We had a great time again and if you have one problem the owner will solf it within minute.
The internetconection is included in the price and is ok. Sometimes on the end of the day the internet is slow and sometimes gone. But you are on an island and internet is coming from the mainland.

The housekeeping is very good and she make it very good clean.
The shower is also very nice it is a rainy shower very nice.

The appartment has no swimming pool but you don't miss it because you can go to the beach about 5 minutes walking.
I like to stay here because it is a quiet place.
If you stay here go to the neigbours the have a great Italiaan restaurant with the best food there is the name is Thaita.
