Our 2nd stay at the resort- just as good as the first time!
Charming, rustic but very comfortable, some of the rooms have been totally rebuilt since last visit. The breakfast was buffet style rather than set menu options which seems to work better, although things like smoked salmon and eggs benedict no longer available, still plenty of choice though. Staff very polite and friendly, rooms cleaned daily with turn-down / mosquito net service late afternoon. A pot of jasmine tea and biscuits arrives on your balcony around mid-day if you are lucky, we seemed to miss it most days, but it's a nice touch!
What makes the resort so good is the amazing amount of space between bungalows and the beautifully kept gardens with all the wildlife- we heard reports of a resident monitor lizard but didn't see it- and the location. You are literally a few minutes walk into town along the beach or footpath where there are a good range of restaurants, bars, seven-eleven, dive shops, ATM's, gift shops, massage shops, travel/tour operators etc. We found Paprika restaurant particularly good for Thai food, but Dolphin Lounge, Blue Diamond and Tuk-Tah (on the main road to Chalok) are all good.
If you are looking to dive (which is a must on Ko Tao), by far the best dive-school is Master Divers, conveniently located a 5 min walk from Sensi- very professional and safety-conscious compared to some of the others.
Some people are worried about the noise from the harbour, but we didn't mind it at all, the sound of the long-tails is part of the charm (rather like a distant lawn-mower) and watching the comings and going of the ferries from the restaurant and beach area was good entertainment!
Can't wait to go back.....
