This hotel was good value for money. We had a sea view room which had a lovely view, rooms are like little huts and are extremely basic (although we saw some of the more expensive ones looked nicer). Location: middle of nowhere really! We hired a scooter for 200 baht and drove to some view points (download maps.me app as...

Absolutely stunning location with great view! The colour of the water changed as per the whether, we were waking up to the best view in Koh Tao! It was a little far away from the main Sairee Beach but it took us 100baht and a 10min bike taxi to reach there!

I stupidly didn't check the tripadvisor reviews before booking this place, on the ferry ride over to Koh Tao the hotel was advertised, the pictures were glamorous and left me thinking this place would be heaven.... Sadly it wasn't the paradise I thought it was going to be. On arrival to the island there was no transfer vehicle to pick...

We were very excited to stay here as the pictures look idyllic and it states on the website that the hotel isn't too far from koh Tao town where it's busy. However, our stay was rather disappointing and I would not stay in this hotel again. Firstly, do not ignore all of the reviews, it is true, the hotel grounds...

Beautifully maintained resort situated on a hillside with stunning views looking over the crystal clear waters of Koh Tao. We stayed four nights in the deluxe bungalows which was definitely worth the extra cost just for the view you wake up to every morning. The staff were exceptionally friendly and attentive in catering to our every need. As the name...

customer service was brilliant, everyone was so nice and helpful. The bungalows were very cute and cosy, but difficult to get to because of the "hillside" area it is situated on. Pool is very nice. Situated on a steep hill and if you are walking everywhere in ko tao it's better to rent a moped. Quite expensive for thailand. Be...

I had an ocean view room and it was a great room. Comfy bed, good shower. Keep in mind the bathroom doesn't have a door, I was by myself so it was fine. Few things to keep in mind- the hotel have only 2 free shuttles a day to the town, at 8:45 and at 13:00. You want to go...

The staff is very friendly and helpfull. They made the mistake of booking us a room with twin beds and gave a free upgrade so we could have one double bed. They made us breakfast bags when we had to leave very early in the morning, and they were just overall helpfull and kind. The resort itself looks very nice...
