A quiet nice oasis on a crowded island, We had a few very nice days there, highly recommended!!

The staff at Samatha were fabulous - Miw and Madison were wonderfully friendly and helpful. The room was clean, spacious and comfortable, and the restaurant was a great place to eat and relax. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Samatha to anyone heading to Sairee Beach.

My mother, sister and I stayed here for three nights. We loved it. Close to everything but quiet and removed. Staff was great. We recommend it!

We really enjoyed our recent 5 night stay at Samatha, the hosts, the staff, the location, the food, the amenities were excellent for the price paid and what we wanted. Would definitely recommend.

Looks cute but i would not recommend it ”
It looked very cute on the first view. But the beds and pillows in the room are very hard and uncomfortable. You have to wait like 20 minutes for warm water. So far i could live with that. But then the party noise they make is insane. Also one of the stuff member is joining this parties and they go on until 5 o‘clock in the morning. I was really wondering what he is thinking, although he has guests he is making that much noise. We have just been here for 5 nights during our dive course. But if you would like to sleep and stand up early don‘t go to that place! Furthermore there are ants all over the room. Breakfast was ok but there is no buffet.

Terrible service”
We found the staff always have an excuse to not do something. cannot give deposit back because no cash. did not clean room once in our 4 night stay. difficult to accept that we need breakfast a little bit early because we have to scuba dive each morning. ants everywhere. wifi didn't work. would never stay here again. only positives are cafe downstairs is relaxing. beds are comfortable.

why don’t you return my deposit? 1000bat!”
This hotel didn’t return the deposit 1000bat. And give the wrong phone number. Service was not good, and never used this hotel. They know that we are tourists and that we are pushed for the time of the ship leaving the island. So it's like lying to us and cheating us. If it is to be used, please do this correctly.

Has really gone downhill ”
Used to love this place and have stayed many times. Hadn’t been in 3 years and it has really gone downhill. Hot water only works sometimes, water system often creates a high pitched irritating sound that goes on and off, breakfast items often not available, didn’t get maid service (when I asked for it, was told I am supposed to ask for it...but was never told this), safe kept breaking, sink dripped non-stop, and it was very noisy at night. Music went on till 10-11pm in lobby and unfortunately, a large extended family is living in the very run down and open air shacks across the dirt street. They have a toddler that cries and whines more than any child I’ve ever heard, a rooster that starts cackling at 5:45am, and they’re out on their porch area (their living area) from early morning till late making a substantial amount of noise. It’s not that they or The Samatha is doing anything wrong, it’s just the way it is. Road up to Samatha is full of debris and litter too. Won’t stay again.

Don’t trust the good reviews....it is really bad!”
I choose this place because of the high customer rating, and because it was a bit out of town and therefore not as noisy as in the town. I am convinced that the owner has used friends to post fake high reviews because the many nice reviews doesn’t match the reality. Positive: The bed sheets were clean. Out of the town but within short walking distance. Negative: The rooms/place is worn down and not maintained. The pictures are from many years ago and didn’t resemble the room now. The place is dirty. My soles got black walking barefoot in my room. Layer of dust on the table. The toilet bowl disgusting. Residues of soap remains from previous guests in the sink, soap holder and walls. And dirty fridge. In the common area downstairs the tables were dirty with filled ashtrays. It was crazy noisy the two nights I stayed there until 4-5 am. The owner used the ground floor as a hang out place for his friends with loud music, drinking and playing pool.

I went down a couple of times and asked them to lower the volume, however 10 minuets later the volume was at the maximum again. I talked to the couple next door about the problem and the wife started crying and said their vacation was ruined due to this place. All the rooms and the (dirty) balconies are facing the dirt road with a view of barracks were poor people are living. Definitely not a place to relax after a day at the beach. The curtains in the room was light lined curtains which didn’t keep out the light in the morning or the headlamps from the cars at night. Breakfast was included which is positive, but it was so small that I had to go to get more breakfast another place. You could order ONLY ONE of the following options: Toast butter & Jam, or Fried Egg on Toast, or Scrambled Egg on Toast, or Pancake, or Muesli Fruits with Yogurt, or Cornflakes with milk. My room didn’t get cleaned during my stay, they don’t provide shampoo/soap, they only provide water the first day. These things doesn’t matter

Disappointed”
I stayed there for 2 nights. The location is good, about 3-5 mins walk to the beach. The room is spacious, however, it’s not as clean as expected and there were ANTs! Even on the bed which is not acceptable! One of the lights in the bathroom was broken. The staffs are fine and the breakfast I think was okay for me. But being honest to myself, I won’t stay there again.

+ big and clean room tasty breakfast (But small) - sometimes unfriendly manager. We wanted to expend our stay and it was not possible to book it directly, so we had to book via Agoda again. On our departure day, we had to leave early in the morning, we asked for a small breakfast, because we have paid for it. But it was not possible.

Depressing”
We checked in here before we moved to The Plantation Boutique Villas. The room we were first showed to smelt like stale urine as soon as we walked in and the bathroom was flooded and a bucket under the sink to catch the leaking water so I asked to change room straight away which they did. The room has been decorated in the modern concrete look but not to a very good standard or quality and the room just felt depressing to be in along with the terrible view of a water tank and muddy side street and the ants in the room. The food was ok in the restaurant. But I wouldn't choose to stay here again.

Great breakfast, circumstances not awesome”
This was a hit/miss stay for us. Overall the place has a nice, relaxed vibe and we LOVED the breakfast. The room was clean on arrival, however we didn’t have any cleaning service throughout our 6 night stay. We didn’t particularly feel we needed it, so we didn’t complain, but just be aware that it isn’t automatic. They supplied us with fresh towels and toilet paper upon request. The circumstantial downers: There is construction going on currently next door, which was fairly loud. The worst part was a fire kept right behind the building to burn excess materials...including plastic...that filled our room with the smell. On the last night, it was fairly windy and all night we heard what sounded like a creaking door opening and closing, making it impossible to sleep. We found in the morning that a large palm tree was rubbing up against the metal roof as it swayed in the wind. Don’t know what to say about this other than it sucked. There are ants, but we kept our trash bin outside and they didn’t bother us much. If you’re planning a stay in Koh Tao, we would recommend doing a thorough search. This place was fine, but if you plan to dive, many locations offer awesome packages for diving & accommodations, that would save you $$. We also think you could probably get an equally nice or nicer place for what we payed ($28 usd/night taxes included).

perfect place in koh tao ”
In the beginning I want to thank staff for everything! They were very very nice! Because of them we really enjoyed this place and feel comfort there. Breakfast was really amazing! pancakes were better than my mom cook!)) and coffee better than anywhere in Thailand. The room was also good, but if course if you like this style, kind of "loft". If you have room on the third floor you can see the sea from the beautiful balcony. Rooms on the second floor also nice. it's about 5 minutes walk to the beach. Nice place, I'll definitely recommend it. Best wishes!

cool vibe, great sound system (though it can be heard from your room). breakfast everyday was great. room was comfortable, but they did not clean up daily. however, they are happy to give you more water/toilet paper, and exchange towels when needed. we were there for 5 days, and it got a bit sandy towards the end. i think they would've come to clean if we asked, but we didn't bother. AC was good. location was a bit tucked away from everything else, but not far at all.

All basic needs are there. Location is good, not too far from 7-11 and other things and Sai Ree Beach. Room is spacious which make it nice. Breakfast is okay, somehow it's good enough for this room rate. Staff are polite.
