Sairee Cottage Resort (SHA Plus+)
Sairee Beach,Koh Tao - View on map
"Lodging - Great bungalows and resort feel. I had stayed at another resort in Koh Tao for three days prior to Sairee, and Sairee stood out in every way. 5 minute walk to every major beach bar you'd want to hit, and there's also a Sairee Restaurant right on the beach. Diving - did my Advanced Open Water certification with James. I was a little nervous about the night and deep dives, but the professionalism and knowledge of the staff quickly put me at ease. Did a few dives with Roktopus, one of top rated dive shops, as well, and Sairee was just as good if not better. Service - had one the greatest customer service experiences of my life here. I lost my shoes on the way from the hotel to the pier. I called and asked if they had seen them, and they went out of their way to find them, and then ship them to me via ferry that same day. Really incredible way to end an incredible experience in Koh Tao through Sairee Cottage."

Sai Daeng Resort Koh Tao
Sai Daeng Beach,Koh Tao - View on map
"Situated on one of the best snorkeling areas on Koh Tao (we saw 5-6 sharks merely 300 meters from the hotel). It is quiet, the resort provides free shuttle to/from the pier and Sairee beach (good for food). The room we had was right at the beach, which made for exquisite morning routine. Breakfast is good, with eggs made to order. Lunch and dinner are available at the restaurant. Decent food, especially good for when you just want to spend the day not moving anywhere. Otherwise, you can jump to Sairee for some really delicious food. Staff was always positive and attentive. A minor setback was that their English ranged from poor to decent to good, and you had to speak to several people sometimes for simple things. But there was no harm done, so, all good :) Note that the prices they offer for daytrips are higher than what you can easily negotiate at the pier. Trip to Nang Yuan cost 1000 THB for two at the hotel, and we got it down to 600THB with the first guy who appoached us. Overall - a peaceful, quiet, romantic place, with a great beach for lazying and snorkeling and kayaking. Smiling people, ok food, and free transport to the island hubs for more. Recommended!"

View point Resort (SHA Plus+)
Chalok Baan Kao,Koh Tao - View on map
"Amazing stay at pool villa 1. Restaurant offers great food with excellent and warm service. Staff are very service minded. The room wasn't cheap but we stayed in another hotel in Koh Tao earlier with similar price but quality was well below. I gave full marks for everything but the hotel is a bit isolated. (Great for people who want a quiet and relaxing time.) So, 10 for everything, 9/10 for location."

Jamahkiri Spa & Resort (SHA Plus+)
Thian Og Bay,Koh Tao - View on map
"Amazing stay. Jamahkiri staff organized free transfer from another hotel in Koh Tao. Service was impeccable through the whole stay. Yummy food. One of the best diving spot of Koh Tao located down the stairs. Perfect for romantic stay as a bit far from busy spots of Koh Tao (far means 10/15min by car). Had a traditional thai massage which were bit disappointing to my view. Would definitely recommend this hotel and come back whenever I can! "

Sairee Hut Resort Koh Tao (SHA Plus+)
Sairee Beach,Koh Tao - View on map
"I traveled to Koh Tao with my brother. We are both Americans between 25-35.. We decided we wanted to be on the north end of the beach to be away from the noise at night but also be at a hotel with a pool. Sairee Hut fit the description and for all nights but one, we couldn't hear a peep of music. Unfortunately, starting at a pretty early time, there was construction going on. They are building a new hut or something. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Anytime we needed a boat taxi, regular taxi, directions, whatever you can think of, they made it happen. You have to remember that Koh Tao is a very laid back community so the service of most places reflect that attitude. We very much enjoyed that atmosphere and all of the great restaurants and bars that Sairee Beach had to offer. We stayed in Room 1 which is the Deluxe Garden View A. While the room is reaaally big, which is nice, it's designed pretty poorly. Minor things that aren't worth mentioning and didn't detract from the trip, but just don't expect to be overwhelmed by the room and possibly be frustrated trying to turn on and off the sink faucet. If the construction is finished, I would definitely recommend Sairee Hut to anyone who wants a good location on the north beach away from the noise, a good staff, a pool and a close walk to all of the main Sairee restaurants and bars.

The Tarna Align Resort (SHA Plus+)
Sairee,Koh Tao - View on map
"Location is perfect balance between being close to the Sairee beach (especially by the hotel’s shuttle) and at the same time being surrounded by the oasis of beautiful peaceful nature offering spectacular views. Free transfer from the Koh Tao pier was perfectly on time exactly as we arranged via messenger the day before arrival. Next on the list was the smoothest possible check-in with lovely receptionist explaining us all the details and offering welcome drinks and wet towels to refresh. Meanwhile our luggage was taken to the golf cart which together with the receptionist took us to the villa we booked. In the villa the same receptionist took the time to show us everything and made sure we are all good (thumb up-well done lady!). It took us a while to comprehend it all, we felt for a while a bit like Alice in the Wonderland. We couldn’t decide whether to look from the spacious terrace and stay amazed by the views or jump in that bed which was absolutely amazing and comfortable and enjoy the views from there. I’m not even going to write about the equipment and furniture in the villa I will only say it was surprising how they were able to combine authenticity of the surrounding with the comfort these villas offer just amazing and pleasure from every point of view. When we thought it couldn’t get better, we were blown away by the breakfast the next morning, simply delicious and extremely wide selection of different food. We loved the swimming pool as well, clean, spacious, deep, offering nice views of course. If you would ask us whether we would stay again in The Tarna Align Resort when comming to Koh Tao again we would simply reply we will come to Koh Tao again just to stay in this resort and enjoy it more! Thanks to every staff member who made it great for us! See you soon... P.S. We were trying to find some cons or areas to improve but we couldn’t really, there was none. :) "

Simple Life Cliff View Resort
Sairee Beach,Koh Tao - View on map
"Staff were super kind. Pool was awesome and huge. Room decor was neat, and the room was super clean. Mattress firm. Water was unlimited at the front desk, and the mini bar was stocked and pretty cheap which was convenient. I'd recommend this place to anyone wanting to stay somewhere a bit more upscale that what is typical in Koh Tao. It's far enough from the center to be quiet at night, but really still just a short walk to the center of the beach. "

Koh Tao Montra Resort & Spa (SHA Plus+)
Mae Haad,Koh Tao - View on map
"Had a beautiful stay with my wife. Everything was thought of. Booked one night, but extended for another 5 nigts. Couldn't leave. Fast check-in. Stunning rooms and swimming pool. Very nice breakfast buffet and, lunch and dinner was nice with many choices and good service. Great support from staff and management when needed to organize small trips and snorkeling trips around on Koh Tao. Had a diving reception as well, but didn't try. Looked very professional though. Cooking class is a must try. This was our first time on Koh Tao so it was important for us to have the support of the staff to know the do's and dont's on Koh Tao, and that they did very well. Will definitely come back here again. We did read other reviews before choosing this place and they are very mixed, and I must say that we were very surprised that this resort gets bad reviews after staying here."

Blue Tao Beach Hotel (SHA Plus+)
Sairee Beach,Koh Tao - View on map
"The hotelroom was clean and nice, it is quite small. The location is perfect in the middle of the strip of Koh Tao, on the sea. But that is direct a big disadvantage, every evening there is a lot of noise from people, food trucks and the bars... We didn't slept well. The hotel staff is very friendly and helpfull. Besides the receptions there are not many facilities in the hotel (no breakfest, bar of restaurant). "

Koh Tao Cabana Hotel
Sairee Beach,Koh Tao - View on map
"This was my third stay on Sairee Beach in Koh Tao. I wanted something slightly away from the crowds, so Koh Tao Cabana, situated on the northernmost corner of Sairee, seemed ideal. When our ferry arrived, the resort taxi service was nowhere to be seen. Fortu ately another driver from a different resort called for us, and within 10 minutes our ride came to pick us up. Our first impressions of Koh Tao Cabana were good. The grounds were beautiful, the offices charming, and the staff welcoming. They gave us some nice fresh juice and wet towels to clean face and hands while completing the necessary paperwork upon check-in. Our cottage was up on the hill away from the restaurant. The further up the hill, the better the view. We were nearly at the top, so the view from our balcony was breathtaking. The cottage itself was very nice, both inside and out. The pictures online actually don't do it justice! Each cottage is made to blend into the natural environment - truly tropical, but not particularly "Thai" ... very luxurious, however! Many reviewers here complain about the mosquitoes, especially when showering or using bathroom in the open-air (yet private) facilities. Behined the cottage. BRING lotions/creams for bites! The resort will provide gallons of insect spray, but you'll be it anyway ... bring your favorite "after bite" ... you'll get bitten all over Sairee or other beaches as well. The restaurant at Cabana is wonderful! Each morning they give you options for breakfast - omelets, fruit, cereal, yoghurt, etc. You can have your fill. We ate dinner at the restaurant one evening as well. Very nice food, but nothing spectacular. Better than most places on the beach, but you'll pay slightly more for it as well. The dining environment can't be beat! Morning or night, the view is wonderful, and the staff attentive and helpful. We didn't make much use of the private beach lounge, but some other guests were there daily. There is also a spa which we didn't use."

More about Koh Tao

Koh Tao, also known as Turtle Island, is a small island in the Gulf of Thailand. Koh Tao is one of Thailand's best places for diving, thanks to its clear calm waters and abundant sea life.

Most of the island's tourism is centered on diving, though its idyllic beach conditions make it a popular destination for all types of vacationers and during the Thai holidays it gets very busy with domestic tourists. Many travelers opt to stay in hotels near Sairee Beach or Mango Bay.

Koh Tao has no airport, so travelers must arrive via boat. Speedboats and high-speed catamarans depart from Chumporn, Surratthanni and Koh Samui, all of which have airports.

For snorkeling and diving, Koh Tao's waters are hard to beat. Chumporn Pinnacle, The Japanese Gardens, Hin Wong Pinnacle, and Sail Rock are just a few of the dive sites around Koh Tao. For inexperienced divers wanting to learn, there are dive instructors at every major beach.

Aside from diving, Koh Tao offers a range of activities for adventure-seekers. Rock climbing is a popular activity on the island, as are hiking, sailing, and kayaking. For travelers looking for an exciting island vacation, Koh Tao is a great destination.
