I love Koh Tao, it's definitely one of the most beautiful places in Thailand. The Palm Leaf Resort made our stay even better, the beach front chalet has a lovely view. Nothing better than waking up looking at Koh Tao's clear blue sea. The resort is located at the end of Sairee beach, about 10 min from all the beach...

We stayed there for 4 nights. The location-super. A short walk from the center but far enough so u can feel isolated from all that partying when u want. Nice beach and sunbeds. We had a superior villa which was great,clean,lovely balcony and nice view. U feel a little like you r in the middle of the jungle.... Didn't eat...

We have stayed for 5 nights at the palm leaf resort at the beginning of april.The bungalow was clean and in a good condition. The location of this resort is probably one of the best of sairee beach, the northern end. The reason why we cant give an overal good rating is that we havent felt being appreciated as guests.The...

I loved it. It is a little paradise away from the partying. Lovely and helpful staff. Breakfast is not included but the restaurant is cheap enough. The room was clean and so was the beach and the water. We could hear our next door neighbours because of a door (locked) between us... luckily enough they weren't noisy.. I'd definitely recommend...

The location is great, the rooms were large and clean but there were some small issues like a lack of closet and drawer space which when you are staying for a week is kind of a drag. A nice place but could just use a little more management attention to make it perfect. Still definitely recommend it.

By no means am I going to tell you it is quiet at night at this hotel. You can hear the pounding bass in the distance from about 10 minutes walk down the beach starting at 9:30pm (fire twirling shows), but I quite like the hotel. We have three different bungalows rented. An older sea view which is right off...

Stayed at Palm Leaf for 3 nights last week. A quiet place right on the beach and a 5-10 minute walk to the centre. The pier is then only another 15 minute walk from there. Room was clean and staff were friendly and helpful. We enjoyed it and even though it didn't have a pool the sea is lovely.

I stayed at the Palm Leaf for 3 days. I had arranged a hotel pick up from the Lomprayah terminal. It was 8 pm, the boat ride was long and very rough. I was so tired and very disappointed when my ride was not there. I had to call the hotel and was told he would be there in 20...

The resort is beautiful and the rooms are very nice. And the location is rather fantastic. Far enough away from the noise on the beach, but close enough to town to walk in 10 minutes. But on many points, this hotel just misses the mark. It would be so easy to fix many of the deficiencies, as they are rather...

My boyfriend and I travelled Thailand and Myanmar for a little over five weeks. We weren't initially sure if we would stay on Koh Tao and so booked this resort last minute online before arriving. It was a little above our initial budget but we both wanted to stay on the beach and I felt we deserved it. We were...

You find us at the north end strip of Sairee Beach. Palm Leaf offers the best view at the bay with its grey boulders and the colourful sea. Just a 5 min walking distance away from the village, it is still a very calm and private place to be. Moreover it is the only snorkeling side at Sairee beach.Set in a nice garden our lovingly furnished bungalows and rooms await your arrival. ... more   less
