“terrible”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2014

When I arrived to the pier .nobody bothered to meet me though I rang them beforehand several times.
After waiting at the pier 1 hour they arrived. You will not be able to find a taxi for a fair price to get there (be aware you will be totally cut off the whole island unless you are ready to pay crazy taxi fees).
When I arrived I saw two big dogs lying in the reception (looking like bull-terrier and rottweiler).
I requested the owner to keep the dogs away from the public area but she told me that they did not bite.
I started to fill in the form on the counter when I suddenly felt a sharp pain in my tight. I turned around and saw that bull-terier biting me in silence looking at me with its red eyes.
The hotel even did not have any anticeptic liquid to apply on my wound.
I was taken to the hospital by the hotel car to be treated for rabies as it is very common in Thailand.
The dogs belong to the owners and they are always loose around.
Now I am back to the UK and still 3 rabies injection are left to be made at my GP.
If you do not want to ruin you holiday stear clear from this hotel and definitely keep your children far away from it.

The location was fabulous--remote and beautiful. The rooms were bamboo huts with mosquito nets over them, private porches with hammocks, and outdoor showers and toilets. The adventure and romance are everywhere. We enjoyed wonderful meals from the cooks, snorkled after climbing a handmade staircase down 500 foot cliffs to the ocean, and were in awe of everything around us. We wish we could have stayed longer...this place was magical.

Room Tip: Take mosquito repellent. There's a lot of them :)

This was the most beautiful place on Koh Tao with a perfect view! We were amazed. Almost 360 degrees sea view at our bungalow. Not much to do besides walking to nearby beaches and snorkeling. Perfect for one or two nights!

Room Tip: Room nr. 7 has the best view

The bungalows are remotely located up on a cliff. The location is very isolated and no beach nearby. The staff wanted us to fill in our own order in the restaurant the first night! But they started to take our order the next day. A Little bit pricy, but nice bungalows and an interesting experience. Beware, no privacy as every sound is shared...

The bungalows have beautiful sea view. When we stayed there it was very windy and the sea was so loud I needed earplugs to sleep. We stayed for two nights. That was enough because the taxi service is expensive and it is really far from everything. It was 500 bht in one direction if you take the ordinary taxi! The hotel driver has very little patience and doesn't speak much english.

The food was good but it became cold very quickly because of the wind. The prices were ok, could have been little cheaper.

The bungalows have many holes and we could even see the stars trough the ceiling. A squirrel visited our bungalow and sh***ed all over the place, we used the mosquito net to protect our staff from it. It tried to steal our food too.

Nice place, but for 1-2 nights max.

We happened to be kayaking past these bungalows, and immediately decided that we had to find a way to stay here. Though the ride getting to and from here is a bit bumpy, albeit slightly inconvenient, it is well worth it. Stunning ocean views, complete peace, and a phenomenal opportunity to stargaze and watch the sunrise. The bungalows are simple, with just a bed (with mosquito net), an outdoor bathroom (no hot water- but it was the most refreshing shower I've ever had), and an amazing hammock. Also very clean! The only downside is that the place is a bit out of the way - but you can arrange for taxi's (the owners will arrange to pick you up when you arrive freeof charge). Walking is do-able (we did it), but be aware that is it quite the uphill trek. If you're looking for a relaxing, peaceful, one-with-nature getaway with then this place is for you!! I would love to go back here.

Room Tip: Ocean view room was incredible

Truly a marmite experience. To set things straight: it is incredibly lovely and romantic and the photos are very much true. What is not obvious until you get there is just how remote it is - once you are there that is it. You get picked up from the pier Ina 4 x 4 and after a somewhat hairy ride you arrive at a desert island paradise. If you are over 20 and value your life You then realise that you need to rent a 4 x 4 or she'll out for fairly pricey transport/cabs each time you want to get somewhere. Which is not so bad until you find out you are way up above the sea line and the beach is a cab ride away. A lovely team of four runs the place while the owner is away cockerel-fighting - the gardener is the driver and the maid is the sous chef. We had a meal cooked for us in a tiny kitchen/diner hewn into a rock - it was fantastic right until the point when the receptionist/waiter decide to use his (gross moment alert) thumbnail to dispose of a tick he removed from the friendly Rottweiler. And then he used the same hand to offer us some sticky rice dessert. So we ran. Not before we spent one night in our lovely little hut, and truly it was one of the best night's sleep ever - the jungle brings peace and quiet. Sadly not for us.
