Koh Tao Simple Life Resort
Ranked #15 of 50 Hotels in Koh Tao
Reviewed 15 August 2017

Stayed here for 2 nights whilst visiting Ko Tao to dive. The hotel itself is in a great location in the centre of the happenings of this area, a short walk to the beach, restaurants and bars. On check in we were greeted by very helpful friendly staff who welcomed us and explained a number of things about the hotel. The room itself was spacious, clean and comfortable. However the shower was very temperamental and seemed to only had the settings of scorching hot or freezing cold making it a bit unpleasant to shower. The breakfast at this hotel also was not very good, there was very limited variety and this food on offer wasn't very tasty - the staff in the breakfast restaurant also did not speak great English and this caused a lengthy confusion when attempting to order eggs. This hotel is nice and the reception staff were good however the breakfast restaurant really lets it down.

We stayed here for 6 nights and it was great. The location is great. I was afraid of noise but there was no noise at all. The people at the reception were more than friendly. And the restaurant was great. Also for breakfast. From this place you can explore the rest of the island.

The rooms were very comfortable here. We had a room right next to the pool which was nice. Breakfast offered in the adjacent restaurant was good quality and plentiful; which prepared us for our days diving. We did not dive with the Simple Life Dive Centre, but with Big Blue along the road which had better reviews. Shuttle bus from the dock and back was a nice touch. Friendly staff. Good maid service.

Room Tip: Poolside rooms were great

Loved every minute of my stay in terms of the homeliness and helpfulness of the reception (Oli, Kung, Haymar) Each room is actually beautifully built with all the amenities . I stayed in the boutique room and it was nothing short of a 5 star hotel.

It is convienented located near Roctopus Dive Center and also just minutes walk to the beach and always for the actual noise.

Had an amazing stay and will definitely see you again.

Stayed: June 2017
