Lotus Paradise Resort
Ranked #56 of 81 Koh Tao B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 22, 2013

We can't recommend this hotel, though location is great, beachfront and in the centre of Sairee. We had booked a deluxe sea view room, yeh right, this was only from the joint balcony, we had sea view, from the room the view was to the closed and empty swimming pool. But the room was also facing the Lotus Beach Bar, so we were entertained with loud music every night until 2 am. Breakfast was a joke, we had the option of 4 different set menus, so it was either fresh fruit and one cup of coffee or two pieces of toast, egg, bacon or ham and one cup of coffee. If we wanted a second cup of coffee we had to pay, so if everything else in Sairee is sold out and you have to stay here, please ask for a room without Breakfast, this can be bought much better in one of the other cafe's. This was not our first option of hotel in Koh Tao, but we learned the night before we arrived that our original booking, Narakaan resort, had been sold and the new owners (Goodtimes Adventures)did not have our booking, so with that short notice there was only Lotus Paradise Resort available in the Sairee area.

Currently staying here for 4 nights. Paid 3500baht per night for 'deluxe' room. For the price you would expect a lot more. The room was okay, decent air con, good shower (very dirty shower curtain) and clean upon arrival. The room has not yet been cleaned despite us leaving the tag on the door requesting it to be. The service is shockingly terrible. Very unfriendly and make you feel very unwanted - not had this issue anywhere else. Rang to front desk and requested another kettle as the one we had was lined with dirt on the inside - still waiting after 2 days for this. Good location, 30 seconds to beach and walking distance to everything else. Overall extremely overpriced and very poor service - would only stay for location.
NB - very dirty pool

Incredibly unfriendly staff! Beyond that we were charged for a beach front room which was really overpriced anyway and we were stuck on the side of the building. This room also just happened to face the all night bar. This was a nightmare in itself. We had no hot water and the electrical outlet fried my wife's electronics. The location is good but there are multiple options in this area. All in all this place pales in comparison to the competitors both in quality, price and service.

Room Tip: If you dare to stay here, be sure to call and confirm your room location

We stayed in 3 different hotels in Koh Tao and this was by far the worst- we stayed here as it was a good location and had a pool- however we never went in the pool as it was disgusting....couldn't see the bottom. Very noisy too, although that didn't really bother us. The rooms too were dirty, with stains on the sheets and the bathrooms were disgusting we stayed in the 1700 thb rooms and definitely not worth it- we ended up back at our original hotel Simple Life which was cleaner and nicer

The staff is overly friendly at Lotus. They go out of their way to ensure you are having a good, safe travel. The location is right along the beach and it is less than 5 minutes by foot to the best bars in Sairee. The rooms are well kept and constantly air conditioned. It's a tad pricy if you are going it alone, but if you can split the room with another it is reasonable. I would recommend anyone to stay here and get to know the staff.

Stated here got a night after full moon, was pleasantly surprised.

Room cost 500 baht for 2 people in a twin bungalow. Bungalow wasn't very secure as windows don't lock and door pretty flimsy but we didn't feel unsafe at all.

Very central location, resort runs parallel to the beach. Owner very obliging, let us use shower/changing facilities the evening we'd checked out as we had to board a night ferry.

Wifi good here, fans keep bungalows mildly comfortable, woke up very hot and sticky though!
