“Very nice bungalows”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

Stayed for four nights at the Sairee Cottages and we had the luck to get two bungalows right on the beach...amazing! To be able to see the sunset every night and take a swim every morning were wonderful. The reception is very helpful as well and when we had some problems with our water in the bathroom, it took five minutes for them to fix it. The location is awesome, close to everything. The restaurant nearby is okey, not the best but very good location and great shakes!

I would definately recommend Sairee Cottages!

Stayed here for three days, the place is clean, it's cheap and it's in the middle of sairee beach. The only negative is the coffee, prob the worst coffee I've had in Thailand. I would reccommend a stop off here if in Koh Tao.

The bungalows are just in Sairee beach, with annexed a diving centre, which is a plus; the bungalows are nice, big and clean, in a big plot of garden, where you can hear cocks in the morning! I have chosen the basic bungalows and the price was correct! In addition they offer free accommodation if you chose to do a diving course or fun dives package (min 6 dives).
There is also a restaurant, with a lovely view of the beach from where you can admire a beautiful sunset, although the menu contains too much Irish food and western food oriented for my taste, as Thai cuisine is lovely. The restaurant is a bit overpriced, you can find cheaper elsewhere just going to local restaurants around the village.
They also have a travel agency which can arrange boat and bus to other destinations. I took from Koh Tao to Trang and of course it would have been cheaper if I would have done it myself (350 bath from Surrathani to Trang was more than double the price of the real ticket).

The bungalows will do with a few extra shelves where to put stuff, as there are none in the room or bathroom. The bathroom is very spartan, but okey. Hot shower and aircon is offered only for the more expensive bungalows. Free wifi only in the restaurant area.

I cannot comment on the diving as I didn't experience it this time round but the cottages them selves were great. They have a wide range of rooms to choose from. I stayed in a garden cottage with a fan. It had a double bed which was very clean. It was very reasonable, I paid 400 baht per night. The grounds around the bungalows are really pretty - they take a lot of care of their gardens. Too pretty!
The cottage also had a bathroom with a cold shower but honestly, you really wouldn't want a hot shower in that climate! The only problem was that the bathroom didn't smell very good at all but I think it has more to do with plumbing than anything else.
The staff were quite friendly and the restaurant has free wifi until 7pm.
There are lots of things to do on and around the island. Just speak to the ladies at reception or the guys at the dive office and they will advise and arrange for you.

Room Tip: Ask to see the rooms, there are lots of options to suit any budget.

A group of us booked the 3 beach side bungalows - they are basic but clean and tidy (although I found the beds too hard!) and you were right by the water as well as being near the excellent kitchen and bar facilities where loads of delicious food and drinks were available at cheap prices. Not far from the shops, and other amenities and good night life too. A highlight of our trip - sadly didn't manage to get out of my hammock long enough to go diving but one of our group has been before and rated it highly

LOCATION: Fairly central on beach path, a few metres from the beach. Bungalows offset from the main path in a garden environment, so feels more quiet and private than some other places.

FACILITIES: AC double bungalow & AC double + single bungalow . Basic bungalow with windows on all sides. Bed comfortable (fairly soft) and AC worked well. Limited storage (especially if two). Bathrooms are basic - wetroom style with low water pressure shower (sometimes no more than a trickle of water), toilet and basin. The slightly cheaper bungalows have no fridge or TV; those that cost a little more have a fridge and TV, but neither have a safe (guests can deposit valuables at reception, where they are locked in an office filing cabinet). External doors of rooms are locked with a padlock. Bungalows are clean. but room cleaning during stay is only on request. Attractive, large terraces at the front of bungalows.

I would recommend Sairee Cottage on the basis that it's in a great location on Sairee Beach, and while the accommodation is fairly basic, it's very much in keeping with the relaxed setting of Tao.

Room Tip: The bungalows with both a double and single bed cost just a little more, but offer much more space.

We didn't stay in the accommodation or use the dive school. But we did have quite a few dinners and relaxing evenings here. Food is very good, Thai food is best value, western food can be a little more expensive. Best part is relaxing with a beer on their waterfront deck watching the boats at night!
