Just stopped by for a dinner and found possibly the best curry (masaman I believe) of our Thai-trip with stunning views over the bay and helpful staff. Location is peaceful and far from the services of the village. A bit pricey (250b for curry) tho.

I stayed there with 2 friends, we were supposed to stay 2 nights but ended up staying 4 as we loved Koh Tao so much. This place is family run and from the first moment you get there you know you will be taken care of: they are very helpful with getting around the island, recommending places to go and they are all so smily and respectful.
The bungalow we had had a double bed and a single bed, the showers and toilets where outside which was quite cool, the balcony was spacious and nice views over the bay.
I will definately recommend this place to friends and will go back there when I go back to Koh Tao.
Also, their restaurant serves delicious food and cocktails, good for a chilled night in...

We stayed for 3 days in hut 4 next to the water and loved the hut and location. It was a good sized room downstairs with huge bed, nets and fan with a sofa area leading to an external bathroom. The upstairs loft bedroom did get warm and unfortunately the boys left the nets open and one of them of them did get badly bitten by mosquitos but that was our fault. There was also a decked area that was sheltered with trees overlooking the bay. We really enjoyed our visit and made the most of the wonderful snorkelling - 2 reef sharks seen in the first 5 minutes which was amazing for our teenage boys. Most of our meals were eaten in the New Heaven restaurant which was consistently good food and drinks with relaxing music and seating. 'Kay' was a wonderful host with very good English and helped with extra fans etc. We dived with Neil from Coral Diving was enjoyed his dives -seeing a turtle was a highlight of our holiday. It was a refreshing change diving from a long tail boat in quiet spots.
Great place that we loved, a little quiet for teenagers but perfect for a few days to experience Ko Tao at its best.

The only thing that kept us from giving this a 5 star was because the bungalows, although very beautifully situated in the middle of the jungle (it feels like) and offering the most amazing views of Shark Bay, need to be a little more cared for and better cleaned. There were many cracks in between the floor boards and the earth which meant that lots of creatures can crawl inside, which for us wasn't a problem but for the squeemish it might be, also it seems that even though they service the rooms every day, there isn't much of a big clean going on in the rooms - our bathroom mirror from arrival to departure still carried the same stains from when we checked in and our toilet didn't get a good wash down...... In the most beautiful scenic restaurant in Koh Tao (in our opinion) and with such great food being served, the service isn't so fast or cared for, most of the team members are sitting in the corner playing on their phones looking bored, and when coming to the bar to order things we were sometimes ignored and had to make ourselves known. We stayed there for 3 weeks, during that time we got to know the people working there who are absolutely lovely, and that is why we were so patient - for us the slow service wasn't a problem as we weren't in any kind of rush but for future guests who are only staying there for a night or two or dropping in to eat at the restaurant, it might be frustrating. Just a little tip for the management if possible to be aware of the possibility that they are losing custom......

Room Tip: Room Number 3...... perfect views and not TOO far to walk up and down to from the restaurant.

Stayed for 2 nights and couldn't fault it. The chance to swim with the sharks ( best 8am ish) on your doorstep makes this the place to stay. Clean rooms, beautiful sunrise and very helpful friendly staff makes this the place to stay. Hired scooters from an Irish guy about 2 km down the road on left ( forgot the name). No problems or scams would recommend him for hire.

We did not stay here but stopped to have a smoothie and take in the view on our exploration of the island. We were staying on Saiwree beach and decided to rent a motorbike and explore a bit. It was my husbands first time driving a motorcycle so we wanted to do the minimal amount of biking and on paved roads to we stuck to the main road south.
We were told about Freedom beach and Chalok beach.
We saw a sign for freedom beach so we stopped and parked. Then we saw a restaurant with a great view and it was here at New Heaven. So we stopped for a drink. It was overlooking a beautiful bay and had a large outdoor patio with those floor cushions I love so much. The service was slow but we were in no rush and our smoothies were great.
Then we head over to Taa Toh bay through there hotel and hung out on the beach, it was a beautiful beach with a cement walkway along the coast to Freedom beach.
Great day!
