      Love this place!”

      This was our favorite place that we stayed during our 2 1/2 week stay in Thailand! Gorgeous views of Chalok Bay. The staff members were so sweet and helpful, and our room was so beautiful with a big balcony. Would definitely recommend this place, especially to those wanting peace and solitude, slightly away from the main drag. Still only a two minute walk down the hill to the main road with bars, restaurants and shops.

      We Extended Our Stay by 5 Days”

      We loved this place. The view from the pool area and our villa was incredible. It made for some relaxing evenings watching the sunset. Breakfast was huge and kept us full for a days or snorkeling and exploring the surrounding area. The coffee is great and we appreciate the refills. Our place was clean, air conditioning worked great, and the villa was spacious - a nice change from the sized rooms we had experienced throughout Thailand. This place seemed like the most bang for our buck after hours of research. We originally only planned on staying 5 days, but we extended our stay for another 5 for a total of 10 - THAT'S how much we liked it.

      We had a fabulous stay at Chintakiri. The place is extremely well kept, clean and the staff is helpful and friendly. On the days that we had to leave early and could not have the complimentary breakfast, they would pack sandwiches for us. The view is gorgeous. The swimming pool is sparkling clean. The only recommendation I have is that they allow the pool to be open later in the evening as well. April was humid and hot and we would have loved to end the day with a dip in the pool.

      Perfect stay for Koh Tao”

      We stayed 7 days in chintakiri and it was perfect. The room was always clean, same as the total hotel. The room is exactly as described with the pictures. The hotel itself is located in my eyes at the best area on the island. You reach the busy and loud habor area in 5-10 min with a scooter. Around the hotel you have lot of restaurants and shops were you can go by foot. The freedom beach you reach without a scooter in 2min. The hotel is located on a hill. So if have have no scooter you have to walk upwards every time which is for me the only small benefit. The breakfast was included and realy great. Lot of different options you can chose every mornig. I would recommend definetly the hotel and the loveful service staff. Good job!!!

      Best view of chalok bay”

      Great spot above chalok bay. Lovely view of the whole bay. Nice and quiet and great big patios on the bungalows. Simple but Well-designed rooms and comfortable bed. Water wasn’t really hot but I didn’t ask to have it checked so can’t really fault the hotel too much for that. Helpful friendly staff.

      Amazing view”

      The view, the friendliness of the staff and the rooms.

      A group of us stayed here for 7 nights. The hotel is up a steep hill, which is steep and not for the unfit (one of our group hated it). But the advantage of being up a steep hill is the view. Each room is a hut/bungalow/self contained unit, ours was large with a comfortable bed and a balcony that looked out towards the beach/sea. The restaurant also had fantastic views, serving a good breakfast and excellent cocktails. Loved the pool, although it doesn't look very big it is perfect for a dip to cool off and most of the time there was no one else there. I would stay here again.

      Staff performance, pool and the view

      We stayed at the Chintakiri for 7 days in a superior room with our 8 month old son. The performance of the staff excellent; they were very helpful with our son. There are restaurants within walking distance, but the steep road up to Chintakiri is an obstacle. I pushed the stroller up the hill with our son in it, great exercise, but not for everybody. Taxis are very expensive on the island. The pool is a great relief after a walk up the hill, and the view is rewarding.

      A little gem”

      Friendly, lovely rooms, near the beach

      We loved our stay at Chintakiri Resort. It was a little stretch for our budget but once we got there, we didn't care because it was just so good. Lovely cleverly designed rooms, all with stunning ocean views, small pool but with infinity edge and the stunning view too. Lovely staff, great and generous breakfast, quiet, private, gorgeous garden, other options a walk away if you don't want to eat at the restaurant (which was good but naturally pricier than local fare in less attractive locations). As a hotelier, I really thought about negatives at this resort and only came up with it is up t a steep but short hill, otherwise pretty spot on for the price. And it is hard to get a booking as they are so good!! We extended our stay and felt blissed out after being here.

      Great views, good aircon, very helpful & friendly staff

      Very nice place. We had the family room with 2 ensuite double rooms and a lounge area.. Great views from private deck, great breakfasts cooked to order, friendly staff. The smalll pool also had a great view over the bay. It is a steep (about 30%) driveway up to the resort, about 200m long, then 3-4 flights of steps up to your bungalow, so you need some fitness. We rented a scooter to get up the drive, but with 2 people on it, it couldn't get up the second half of the drive. The owners could add a finishing touch to this otherwise quality place by buying a tuktuk or electric cart with a call buzzer, to take guests up and down the drive.

      Spectacular view that will stay in your eyes”

      Very nice view over the bay, good food at the restaurant, poolside that you forget to go to the beach

      If you are looking for a bit secluded place that is away from big crowd and noise from the loud bar that is the place to go for. Chintakiri offers really professional service. Staff is special attentive and they will take good care for you. They provide also free pick up and for us also drop off from the main pier. I did not have any particular need to go to Saree beach as I enjoyed Chalook bay. certainly it is less crowded with tourists and it offers also a spectacular nature surroundings. Rooms were in very good condition and we did not have any bad word about it. A view from each balcony faces the bay so you will enjoy it. The higher you are the better it will be. Pool is small but still it offers great pleasure with jacuzzi and also for small kids. Food in the restaurant is very good. I tried a variety of restaurant at Chalook bay and I found Chintakiri best. Specially I enjoyed beef salad and Tom Yum. Chintakiri have also quite deent library with books and also good magazines. There are also some games you can play and free DVD rent for late evenings. As a couple we enjoyed a lot and would definetenely recomment it to everyone searching for a bit secluded, clean and quiet accomodation. Regarding the price. You get what you pay for. All the best to the staff that take good care of the place. I saw that place is quite popular among the couples, young families and young flashpackers I guess :). There is a reason as an access is steep and some of the people might not like that. But no problem if you like a short hiking and exercise. This is always good to have. From Chintakiri to the beach is only 5 min. Up a little bit more. Best beach for me on this side was Freedom beach and it is around 15-20 minutes away (walking). You can also book snorling trip with them and you will get same price as everywhere else. They will also pick you up and drop you off. Till next time, d & a

      Good Hotel”

      We really enjoyed our stay in the hotel. The room was very comfortable and clean with very nice views! It is a different experience as you stay a little far from the beaches but literally in the middle of the jungle. The breakfast is not buffet, you can order one item from their menu. The only downside is the location which is indeed on the top of the hill and for us, a young couple, it was very tiring to go all the way up. It’s recommended to rent a scooter to facilitate this. Overall it was a good stay!

      At first they pick u up on the pier and bring you to the resort, the staff is really helpful, they bring your luggage to your "house"! :) They also organize tours for you (snorkelling etc.). The accommodation was great, very clean (rommservice cleaning everyday and brought water, new towels..). The view from the balcony is stunning 🤗 Breakfast was also really good! The resort is based on a steep hill (we recommend you to rent a motorcycle) ;) The beautiful freedom beach is not far away. And u can use the pool! I would recommend the resort to everybody! :)

      Very good”

      The hill this resort is perched on is no joke, even for this San Franciscan, it was steep as hell. Don't slip. But you are rewarded with a wonderful view each morning, so there's that (and the High Bar is conveniently right above the resort!). The facilities are a little tired (the pool cushions are brown plastic and worn and not the white ones you see in the pic, the towels need to be retired) but it was clean and everything worked. The staff is so nice, especially after you're there for a couple days and you get to know each other. Don't miss Yin Yang for lunch and dinner, conveniently just down the hill.

      Our favorite hotel in Thailand ”

      We highly recommend this hotel. The rooms are beautiful and clean, with an amazing veranda and beautiful view of the bay. The hill to reach the hotel was actually not so steep as we had expected - two short climbs only, which are perfectly possible for anyone in medium shape! We did not make use of the pool, but it seemed to always be very calm and had a beautiful view as well. We also made use of the hotel restaurant several times, which offered great food. The biggest asset of this hotel is most definitely the staff - a special note to the lady behind the reception and in the restaurant, who were the kindest, most sincere we encountered - and this is a country where almost everybody is very kind and sincere! Everyone of the staff went to great lengths to ensure that every problem or question we were was more than adequately addressed. We wish we had stayed longer!
