Pinnacle Koh Tao Resort
Ranked #23 of 50 Hotels in Koh Tao
Reviewed January 29, 2013

We were picked up from the pier in Koh Toa by a European represtative who briefed us about the resort and what to expect during our stay. The information was about how isolated, thus, giving total privacy, the hilly slope of the resort and its shuttle service up and down the hill, and how to get to town on the free bus. It made our stay a lot smoother and more enjoyable. What a way to treat your guests, Thanks for the wonderful stay, we will definitely be back in the future.

Room Tip: try to know the property and plan you way around

The room was quite large, almost 50 sq.meter which was more than sufficient for two people but the view was just make the whole holiday one of our best trip we ever had. We would not say they have an exceptional resturant and service becasue this island is quite remote and still very natutral with the surronding. If you want privacy and relaxation, this is the place to be. It is a little bid hilly to walk up and down, but that is what we get with a great view of the sea right from our bungalow's balcony with no obstacles.

Room Tip: we like to stay on top of the hill

We stayed here for three nights and enjoyed relaxing in our beautiful bungalow. We really liked the view from the room and the whole hotel property. There is some shared access to a small beach which was good, however the hotel advertised great snorkeling at their property which is false. The water is clear but all the coral is dead. Don't bank on snorkeling here.

The hotel is located away from the town but there is a little convenience store on the property. Not a lot of food options, the hotel restaurant was ok, not great. We enjoyed their duck thai curry dish.

The staff at this resort was really frustrating. It was hard to get clear information from them about snorkel tours and took forever to arrange departure transfer (which arrived late to pick us up).

More responsive staff would go a long way here.

Room Tip: Spend a little more on a bungalow.

Dear lqdflo

We would like to thank you for writing a valued review on our resort, and are pleased to hear that you had a relaxing stay in our bungalows. As for the snorkeling we are sad to hear that you did not enjoy it as much as our other guests do. We would also like to apologize to you for having to wait a long period of time for the transfer, this is not usually the case as we have on-site drivers.

We hope you will give Pinnacle Koh Tao Dive Resort another chance and would like to welcome you back again in the future.

Sincerely,
Tim
General Manager

This is a nice get away for someone who want total privacy, great view, relaxation and good food. \if you like the night life and a lot of action, avoid this place. This resort is situated right on top of a hill that requires strong legs and those who want to exercise. They have shuttle bus for you if need but it is not as convenient as walk up and down yourself.

We heard about the fiasco situation in Koh Tao during the New Year holidays where tourists just flocked into Koh Tao and the island just could not cope with the mass. With less tourists around, Koh Tao returned to its natural habitat and at the resort where we stayed we got the kind of services we expected. Nice rooms and excellent services. No complaints.

We came prepared to take diving lesson with a group of friends and the trip was quite enjoyable. The resort was conveniently located right on the area where we can just walk out from where we stayed. Good view and beautiful surrounding garden. Staff were not as well trained but good enough services.

We were here back severl months ago and stayed longer this time around to take the dving lesson which is probably the cheapest anywhere you can find. The garden around the bungalows are much nicer. Different mangement but the place was well kept. Good and improved breakfast with the shuttle bus that can take you around the property more conveniently. Great to be back. Price was higher than our previous visit but still a good value.
