Lovely place ”
It is a great place out of the way of the hustle and bustle, Just keep in mind we did not have Air conditioning or wifi. Something i guys is hard not to have on vacation. We hope everyone enjoys :)
Wonderful place - by far the best place and value in Koh Tao!! ”
I LOVED my stay here. The staff were all super friendly and the location as spectacular. This is one of the most beautiful places I have visited in the whole world. The bay has the best snorkeling of all of the three islands. I highly recommend room number 10. It has the most incredible view. Enjoy!!!
All for the view, the sea, and nature”
I have been staying at this place for about 10 weeks since I am working remotely from an office in Koh Tao. The staff is helpful, friendly, and the food is great! It's a little far off from town, but if you're looking for a quiet beautiful place to stay, this is it. The apartments are clean, well maintained, and there's wifi available. If you're looking for fast connection just hop to the common area and you're good to go. They also rent out affordable new scooters in case you need to get one (which you will) and will treat you honest if you damage them (been there done that). All in all highly recommended.
Things are pretty much as described. Location is somewhat remote. My room was fine; quite clean. Cold water showers. Drinking water not provided. The guys on staff were helpful (carrying my heavy bag up the stairs). The owner, his wife, and the cook were somewhat temperamental, but not really a problem. Small beach and snack place nearby offers some variety in food and things to do. There’s not much here other than swimming/snorkeling, so if the weather’s not cooperative or you’re not into it, there’s not much for you here. Definitely helpful to have your own transportation.
Great place if you want a spacy apartment away from civilisation”
Staff is great and helps you get everyting you need. especially older lady who is also cooking in the restaurant. Food in the restaurant is very good, althpugh it is the only option to eat there unless you cook yourself. Beautiful view, big rooms, easy to organise things. Location is not problematic if you can drive a motorbike, which you can rent there. They also can get you taxi any time you need. Beautiful place for snorkling. There is no sandy beach around. Only stones.
Best snorkeling point”
Very friendly staff and amazing view. The location is not so good because it's 2 km of up-hill, down-hill walk (even hard with a scooter) to the first shop or restaurant. They would pick you up from the pier if you would tell them in advance of your arrival time, and take you back to the pier for 300 THB (the taxi is 550 THB). They don't have hot water, there is no network connection (if you have a SIM card, it's useless) and the wifi signal wasn't so good. If you like quiet places, away from everyone, with amazing corals and fishes around, this is the place for you.
Excellent quiet location with amazing staff”
Views are amazing, rooms very spacious, all staff are approachable and friendly. Speak excellent English. Perfect for a quiet break and snorkelling, quiet far away from town would need a form of transport, however staff are extremely accommodating and run a drop off service for a small fee.
A hidden gem.”
I originally chose this hotel purely because of the price, but it turned out to be the highlight of my trip. Although it is only 8 min. drive from the hustle and bustle of Saree beach, this place offers you the chance to experience the feeling of peace, tranquility and remoteness that used to be the essence of island holidays. The buildings are unique, snorkeling facilities superb and the staff wonderfull. A truely joyous experience.
Fantastic place ”
Fantastic place so nice apartments will go back soon best place in Koh Tao
A secret Gem for a great price”
Getting to place is a bit tricky but its one of the most beautiful beaches in Koh Tao. Its a really lovely place with the most amazing view ever. We absolutely loved the place and the staff were super friendly. I definitely would recommend this place.
wonderful view from the hotel”
the view from the hotel is stunning beautiful and very peaceful, it's located far away from the main area (night life, market, convenient stores etc). the road to this hotel is quite dangerous as it's the broke concrete and dirt road to the east but they're improving it during my stay so I'm sure a few months after that it'll be easier to go there. after you arrive Hin Wong bay, you have to walk to the hotel, up and down for about 500 m. in the day time, my room was pretty hot as there was no a/c but that wasn't a big deal because I went outside. the owner and his clews were friendly, food in the restaurant was tasty too. if you love a peaceful, remote place and relaxing time, I highly recommend this place. you can jump in the water for snorkeling, underwater lives are abundant.
Gorgeous out of the crazy bustling khao Tao”
Hin Wong apartments are a couple of km from town. It's secluded in the most picturesque bay. If you love snorkeling just jump into the warm waters next to the salt water pool. The best anniversary we've celebrated yet. The food on offer here is great. Such a laid back place. The owner Clive always has a good yarn to entertain you. The sunrise is stunning. If youre into lying back and chilling, this is the place you're looking for
I can't recommend this place enough, the old man the owns the place (usually asleep on the couch is pleasant to talk to) but his wife is the real backbone behind the place. The staff is some of the hardest working people I've met. great views great tours great prices
Views great, getting to less”
The views and the location is just epic. A bit hard to get to tho. If you take a taxi, which costs big amounts per trip as it's per person, it's okay. With a motorbike, better make sure you know how to drive and that you rented a strong and good condition bike/scooter.
best stay ever”
best value ever.the super big sea view room is stunning and diving spot just downstairs. the pool is made by natural stone and food is delicious and reasonable price. strongly recommend staying here for 2 or 3 days and just enjoy diving and sunshine. its not colse to the town centre but i dont want to leave at all since i got everything i want here.
Heaven on earth, the perfect place to stay on Koh Tao”
Heaven on earth! This accommodation made mine and my partners trip to Koh Tao such an unforgettable and magical experience. We had been travelling Thailand for two months when we got here and were blown away by how beautiful Hinwong was. It was by far the best place we have stayed! We swam directly outside the apartments in the clearest waters everyday. You can see all kinds of fish and coral and as it's on the other other side of the island to the main resorts it's so quiet and secluded and makes it extra special. We woke up to watch the sunrise most mornings over the horizon from our balcony which was absolutely amazing. The food from their kitchen was unreal! So packed full of flavour and very authentic and they also catered to our dietary requirements. Yes, the road to the resort is quite hilly, but it is properly surfaced and good exercise if anything. Not a problem if you rent a scooter of course. We loved this place so much, we booked an extra night as we weren't ready to leave!
Beautiful scenery and snorkelling.”
Lovely apartment, surrounded by beautiful scenery / views of the bay. However, it did feel very isolated with no WiFi or phone signal in rooms. There is free WiFi in the lounge / restaurant, but this seems more like the family’s lounge, with the kids and owner often sprawled out on the sofa. The food and drink choices are not extensive and it’s a steep trek to any other form of civilisation, unless you swim around to the small beach. We did enjoy the vegetable curry and spicy pork salad we had, but used the gas cooking stove an utensils in our apartment for our other meals. They didn’t appear to sell any essentials, such as mosquito spray, coils etc. So remember to stock up before you go. The owner is very chatty and provides a taxi service at a more reasonable price that the taxi mafia, but you may have to wait for others to join before you go anywhere. Unfortunately, the female staff I encountered were not overly friendly or welcoming. It’s very tranquil listening to the waves lapping the rocks, apart from the occasional doors banging, I assumed due to the breeze. There’s good snorkelling all around the bay, a massive bait ball (10,000 strong) to the outer, right of the bay (right as your looking out to sea). I even saw a small reef shark from my balcony, pestering a school of fish! It’s better to go early morning and early evening, to avoid the tour boats and the heat of the day.
Great romantic getaway”
This place is perfect if you want a romantic getaway with few distractions. The views are simply fantastic and we found ourselves just staring into the ocean whenever we had the chance. Food is fantastic and reasonably priced. The owner is very friendly and you get a very homely feel. The location is remote and travellers should keep in mind that it's on the other side of the mountain and walking to town is somewhat impossible so just stock-up before heading to the resort.
Tuble Down Hobbits Shire”
Leaking roof, hotel area and rooms, very dirty and hot. Nice athmophere and stuff. Electricwires hanging all over dangerously. Very personal place, if somebody likes then might like. Nice views from balcony. The dock Area very dangerous but the snorkling possibilities are awesome... this could work old school hippies/90’s hipsters for flashback trip to old times or new age hipsters who folllow them parents foot steps
Great place with great view. Far from town so better stock up on 7-eleven. ”
We had an amazing view and big appartement. Nous beach but had rocks to tan and water was accessible. Staff were amazing. Taxis will drop you off next door at the other hotel so will have to walk up a path. Would recommend
