The service is very friendly and competent. All in all we had a very nice visit.
Nothing too exciting but nothing to complain about either, which was a relief compared to a lot of places we stayed at during our 4 week vacation.

I would say the location is above average because you are just 100m away from all the excitement, which is enough to reduce noise from all the partying going on in town, but very easily walked so you can still enjoy the town when you want.

I can recommend staying here 2-3 nights for sure, there is plenty to do in Sairee.

We stayed here for one night in June, great location a 5 minute walk from Sairee Beach tucked away down a lane off the main road. The rooms were big and all had a minimalist design, the bathrooms had a large shower and towels were provided. The service was great, very friendly and you could choose a limited number of things for breakfast which are cooked to order. Our only problem was that the neighbours cockerels did not give it a rest! They were vocal throughout the whole day and started up again in the early hours of the morning. As they were right below our balcony there was no getting away from the noise which was a shame as the beds were so comfy!

The hotel is trying to be hip and modern with simple furniture and design. This being said, it is very over priced. There is a horrible view out the balcony and there is no safe in the room. The location is decent but you can find better closer to the beach. Also we are here during a big festival and it is incredibly loud with music until about 3am and we were not warned out this in the slightest.

We found Samatha's by accident while looking for somewhere to stay once we'd finished our dive courses, and boy we're glad we did find it!
Samaths is a beautifully designed hotel with large, airy rooms, a large balcony and super comfy beds. The service is spot on, always a warm welcome and friendly smile. Breakfast is great and included in the price. There's a good choice of eggs, musli etc and THE best banana pancakes!
It's in a great location just off the main strip so nice and quiet.
The only things I would comment on....not really wanting to say anything negative but just as some pointers to make it even better;
(Some of these things have been mentioned before in reviews)
- the lighting isn't great in the bedroom and annoying there's no bedside lamp as you have to get out of bed to turn the light off and the main light isn't great to read through.
- the curtains are quite thin and were we're woken up in the morning.
- a comfy chair to sit on the balcony with would be great.
- the rubbish and huts opposite are a shame...you feel you're in a luxury hotel but have to look out on a really unsightly bit of land. Could you add a screen or trees on the front of the hotel as there's no view anyway?

That said, you really should Tay here, it's a fantastic spot and great value.

We stayed here for 3 nights at Samatha with nothing to complain at all. An eco-friendly B&B located near the famous Sairee Beach but far enough from the noisy atmosphere. The owner is an architecture and designed his own small hotel , the rooms are modern and stylish, staffs and service also great , choose Banana Pancake for your breakfast and you will never forget the test.
No TV in the room but who need it in Koh Tao!!

We already planned to be there again & again!!

Room Tip: All room is same
