Koh Tao Simple Life Resort
Ranked #15 of 50 Hotels in Koh Tao
Reviewed April 10, 2012

Koh Tao is by far the most beautiful of the 3 islands off this coast of Thailand.

The Simple Life is a lovely resort with wonderful staff. The breakfast is good but they need to stop all those awful flies getting in as they just sit on all the food!

Room Tip: Book a luxury room theyre worth it!

We spent four nights in the Simple Life Resort hotel. The hotel was very good - nice pool, good free breakfast. The room was a 'superior' and had been built in a very stylish way with the largest shower I have ever seen! The balcony for the room was really good and the staff were helpful. Very good free internet and they meet you (and retrun you) to the boat pier.

Room Tip: Would recommend a 'superior room'... unfortunately I just would not recommend Koh Tao at all...

We stayed for three nights in the simple life resort. The room we had (superior AC room, 2500 B) was really nice (with towels folded in the shape of a swan!). Unfortunately the AC didn't work properly so we had to move to the room next door (same room, working AC). The resort is in the centre of the village which means you have everything close by but you also have a lot of noise. Especially the restaurant is too close to the main road with a lot of noisy traffic. The wifi they offer is worthless and their are no public computers you can use. So if you are looking for a nice room close to the bars, beach and restaurants this is a good pick, if you want a little more peace after a long day in the water, go somehere else..

Perfect resort with all the facilities you want. Spacious rooms and bathroom, new interior. Nice balcony with view of the mountains. The pool is nice with service and plenty of beds.

Situated perfectly - middle of sairee town 2 mins from lovely beach. Lots of restaurants about bit the food at the simple life restaurant is brilliant and we didnt dine many other places except the Brother bar and restaurant, next door which is part of the same.

Another highlight was the superbly run simple life diving school which provides a fun day out and excellent teaching for beginners and those looking to get licenses at very good prices.

All in all a very good value for mOney and couldn't imagine staying anywhere else

there are things I's like to have known before we booked to stay on Koh Tao

- Simple Life resort is good enough; comfortable air conditioned rooms but a very small pool given the size of the hotel and it's a walk to the beach

- Simple Life resort and Simple life diving are not connected, you can stay anywhere and dive with Simple Life or you can stay at the resort and pick another dive school

Sairee is a cool town, lots of good accommodation and bars, do your homework and if you don't want to spend the money diving the snorkelling right off the beach is brilliant, there's a reef about 30 metres out

Room Tip: make sure you have a air conditioned room and stay as far from the restaurant as you can, they party...

We stayed here in february '12 and booked our room in advance. This gives you more peace of mind once entering the harbor, since everyone is trying to get you to their own hotel/resort. The shuttle service from Simple Life gets you to the resort in no time!

We've stayed in the newest rooms: the mountain view rooms. These are equally sized as the superiour rooms, but have no view at the pool. The service in the hotel was excellent! some operational errors (housekeeping mostly: no towels, or no water in the fridge), but when we informed the reception desk, they helped us immediately.

All in All the last week of our vacation was excellent, thanks to Simple Life both Resort and Divers, so thanks!

We stayed here as a group of 5 adults, one room of 3 and one room of 2 for 3 nights. The rooms were lovely and clean and spacious, we booked superior rooms as the rate was very very reasonable. The staff were friendly and the pool was nice but would probably benefit from a couple more sunbeds. The breakfast is ok, quite standard. The only problem we had was when we checked in they got the bookings muddled up with another group, so our rooms were not ready and it was quite stressful at the time. This took about an hour but everything was resolved in the end. All in all we were more then happy staying at simple life, the location is really good and central and the hotel was very clean. Would stay here again.
