“More then adequate”
Reviewed June 15, 2014

Clean room. Centrally located in Sairee. Short walk to the beach. No pool. Adequate breakfast included. Delicious chocolate croissant. We were concerned about street noise based on previous reviews. Our room was on 2nd floor ( really 3rd floor) facing the street. We heard no street noise really. The new vinyl window seemed to keep it out. It was pretty quiet in town though even though the World Cup was starting. Room was clean. Bed was comfortable. Water had a sulphur odor so we used complimentary water to brush our teeth. Fridge in room. Air con worked great. Hot water was short lived for showering. A hand towel in addition to bath towels would have been nice in the room. Overall totally adequate.

The Hotel is small but well-cared for by Thierry and his staff. I received a warm welcome and experienced a very good, spacious room.
The breakfast menu is a bit short but everyone´s taste should be served with that.
Room-service is efficient, maintanance is working quickly.
I would definitely stay there again, it is a gemstone between all the backpacker Resorts.

And that's we had to leave. Thalassa is the best hotel we stayed in Thailand! The rooms were chic and a great size. The hotel is located near everything. It is a short walk to the massage place, Silver Sands 2 Massage, bike rentals, and the Muy Thai fights. The beach is around a 2 minute walk, and there are restaurants and bars all over the area. The breakfast is good, not going to win any awards.

The hotel staff is very attententive. From Thierry's welcome email, to the housekeeping staff doing a rush job on our laundry.

It's a little more costly than comparable hotels in Thailand, however, everything on Koh Toa is. If I were to visit Koh Toa ever again, I would stay at Thalassa again.

This is a very good place to stay! It's fresh and close to everything. Very friendly staff. I can imagine that the tapas place they're about to open are going to be very good. It's a bit pricey but well worth it. You get fresh water daily and they have a safety Box, pretty good when you're going to the beach.

Pros - Good Hotel with Clean Rooms, Good Location near the main part of Town, Thierry the manager was extremely helpful , Good Breakfast , Quite (As far a my room was concerned)

Areas of Improvement - Hotel could arrange for Pick and drop from the Pier, the water from the Taps and shower had distinct smell but that could be a problem with the town, Slightly expensive as compared to similar properties

Thierry helped me with renting a bike as well with no issues.

Room Tip: I wanted a quite room , which has windows towards the rear of the Hotel and not near the Choppers an...

Good hotel. Very comfortable bed, good shower, high speed internet and a good breakfast but quite expensive like everything else in ko tao. Staff was very helpful with our requests, even when we had to cancel one night due to diving classes.

Thalassa is a little gem on an island continually growing with popularity.

Staff:
The French manager is chill and the Thai staff are all extremely helpful and friendly.

Cleanliness/Feel:
The upside to this hotel, which others can sometimes lack on islands, is how fresh, clean and stylish it felt - almost like an urban apartment.

Breakfast:
Healthy breaky is good and the French breaky is OK. Didn't try the English.

Location:
The location was absolutely perfect for us - 45 seconds from the beach and a 5 min walk from Island Muay Thai, where we were doing a little post Europe fitness and training. Located pretty much as central as you could get, in terms of Sairee Beach.

Value:
Excellent value for money.

Downside:
Wifi was slow while we were there.

Recommend:
Yes

Return:
Yes
