Excellent Value. Great host”

Comfort, Quality, Friendly and helpful management and staff, Value for money
Nothing I dislked but the service will be further enhanced when the restaurant under construction is completed

I spent three days on Ko Tao in October 2009 and selected the Simple Life from a range of accommodation available through the usual websites. Simple Life delivered everything that they claimed on their own website and more. Large rooms and comfortable beds; all of the facilities you would expect in a 3 1/2 to 4 star resort on Ko Tao including a brand new pool. I looked over several other places on Sairee Beach and saw nothing close to Simple Life for quality and value for money. The resort is close to all the essential facilities - laundry, internet, restaurants etc and a short walk to the beach. Owner/Manager Pio is a great host, very knowledgeable on the island itself and with a history of managing quality resorts in Thai islands. A great guy and a great resort!

Simple Life Resort Koh Tao”

Room & bathroom size, balcony, location, staff, free wifi, in-room safe
nothing really, no pool but we weren't bothered...it looks like they're adding a spa to the resort anyway

The Simple Life is a fabulous place to arrive into in Koh Tao especially if you've just arrived to Sairee from the pier. The resort is right on the street but doesn't get any noise from bars further down the beach. The staff are very nice and friendly but above all the room and bathroom are massive! Lots of space and a huge balcony make it a very luxurious place to lay your head and excellent value. We booked it for 2 nights and didn't intend on spending so much on accommodation but we were pleasantly surprised when we arrived and didn't mind the cost at all :)There is no restaurant or bar at the hotel itself but they serve breakfast at The Brother down the street, literally 50 yards away and it is excellent (banana pancakes!) I would highly recommend Simple Life!

Stunning. Amazing value, perfect location.”

First off the rooms are stunning and the decks and breakfast plsunthe staff can’t be beat. We stayed at a few places inn koh Tao and the women at the desk Kung completely accommodated our requests. Bc we were already in town we boooed and then walked over to the hotel as we saw some beds are pushed together and we wanted a king size bed. No only did she accommodate but she was so helpful in getting us a killer deal on a scooter without having to leave our passport. The women she sent us to was amazing and right in front of thecholler Bar. Just askcor a scooter there and you’re all set! Low price, new scooters and NO Problems! There was bad flooding while we were on Koh Tao and in TWO DAYS they had the WHOLE resort and pool cleaned. I watched them work tirelessly removeing tye mud after three days of flooding (it even reached the koi pond!) and the teamwork was awe inspiring. We will definitely be back to Koh Tao and absolutely stay at Simple life! Thanks Kung!

Lovely, relaxing. Stay at a friendly hotel”

Location, big luxurious room, great breakfast!

We chose the Simple Life for its Dive Center originally, but were pleasantly surprised by all this hotel had to offer. It's location right in central Sairee Beach is ideal and the dive center is only a two minute walk from the resort. Koa Tao is not a great place to rent a scooter, the roads are very bad and the walking wounded from scooter accidents are everywhere,, and taxi's are expensive here, so a central location is key. The staff at the resort upgraded our room from a superior to a deluxe which is really just a different layout, but the room was the best we have had in the last two months! Very luxurious, huge bathroom with a shower for 5 or all your dive gear to hang. The restaurant was really good and the breakfast included was huge. There is Also a bar upstairs, we didn't try it but it was pretty quiet at night. The rooms have lovely terraces that overlook the pool and the pool area is very nice, good sun most of the day, but it could use a few more loungers as you have to get in early or wait for one. The staff is super friendly and a few speak good English.

Fantastic hotel, even better staff”

Stayed at this hotel for 1 week whilst completing scuba diving qualifications. The hotel is great, rooms are big and the breakfast was good. The staff were fantastic, always friendly and would constantly go out of their way to assist in whatever way they could. Taxi to the simple life dive shop was arranged and on time (if not early) everyday we needed it. Location is great, only a 2 minute walk to the beach and plenty of restaurants and bars close by. Already planning on returning to Koh Tao and will be staying at Simple Life resort without hesitation. Simply fantastic!

Lovely place to stay - newly built. We stayed in both standard and then upgraded for an additional $10. Preferred latter as larger room over-looking the pool, worth the extra $. Lovely staff, very helpful. Breakfast at near-by restaurant, big breakfast and only about 20 steps away (others have complained about this !!!)
Nothing bad really. Some building at front and around pool taking place at time, but didn't disturb us. (few mossies, but in tropical Asia after-all; so just close all windows & doors around dusk)

We stayed during off-season so thought that this place was real value-for-money. For same $ had something very basic (without pool) at Chaweng Beach, Koh Samui. Prefer Koh Tao to KS as not so commercialised, have kept this isand to how it would have been 20years ago - rustic feel slightly modernised etc (only one sealed road loved it !) Simple Life resort was great, would stay there again, friendly staff, not right on the beach, but has pool : )) Less than half the price of similar places on the beach.

Beautiful, High Quality Resort”

Room was immaculately clean. Resort is almost brand new. Staff very friendly and helpful. Woman at the desk spoke English well and was very pleasant. Free wi-fi. Free breakfast. Excellent location. Excellent amenities, well equipped mini bar with very fair prices.
No cons. This was our favorite place to stay over the last four months of traveling Australia and SE Asia.

We booked Simple Life ahead of time online because we wanted to make sure that we had somewhere nice to stay on the Island for our first night. We planned to stay one night and find somewhere cheaper, but after staying one night and looking around at other places, we found it impossible to leave, even though there were cheaper places on the island. We were very impressed with the room, it had excellent decor, very modern, everything is brand new, the bathroom was two or three times the size of most we have seen. My girlfriend loved the place. We stayed at the 5 star Marriot in Kuala Lumpur because everything was booked and the room at Simple Life was just as nice, maybe nicer. You can definitely find cheaper resorts on the island, but because the island is so small, many of the resorts have limited amenities. For example, hot showers and 24 hour electricity is not standard at all resorts in Ko Thao. I also recommend eating at Papas Tapas which is a short walk from the resort, very delicious. If the price of Simple Life Resort is not going to break your budget, I would highly recommend the place.

Relaxed and welcoming beach hotel”

Staff is wonderful and very helpful with booking tours, prices are reasonable, breakfast great, location is convenient.

We had a great time staying at Simple Life in Koh Tao. First of all, Koh Tao is a very relaxed environment and this hotel is close enough to food, entertainment, bars, and the beach, but removed so that your room and setting can feel peaceful and quiet. The staff was very helpful and friendly and they can book a number of things on site with no mark up - like ferry tickets, snorkeling trips (highly recommend Diamond Tours), on-site massage, etc. Breakfast was really great with a ton of variety (and we're both vegan).

The friendliest staff ever”

We’ve stayed here before, and the first time they upgraded us which was a lovely surprise! You get picked up at the ferry pier and taken to simple life where you’re met by some very smiley, friendly, warm receptionists, whose great English we admired! Our room was lovely and the view beautiful! Simple life is right in the middle of Sairee Beach village, but the rooms are very quiet at night and they look out over the beautiful garden/pool or the palm trees and hills. The room was very big and was cleaned well every day, and when we arrived there was dragon fruit and other fruit left on the table for us. The receptionist booked the return boat for us and arranged pick ups etc. Thanks for making our trip easy and relaxed!

Location, comfort of the room, own dive shop

I really enjoyed my stay at Simple Life Resort. It is centrally located and very close to the beach but far enough from the nightlife to be quiet at night. The room was very comfortable. The Resort has their own dive shop which I used for most of my dives on Koh Tao. They are very good and the equipment was quite new. I would absolutely stay at this resort again and would dive again with Simple Life Dive.

Simple Life 6 nights in June ”

Large living area,Great bathroom

We enjoyed our stay at the simple Life resort. We re both divers, so we actually spent little time at the resort. The pool looked nice plenty of lounge chairs. Some of the rooms look out on to the pool.We got a fantastic promotional rate through AGODA. we stayed 6 nights paid for 4 nights. We did not dive with Simple life divers at the resort. I contacted Impian divers via email and was very pleased with their dive operation. One of the reasons we chose not to dive with Simple Life was that the Breakfast buffet starts at the same time as the divers leave. You have no time to eat. The irony was that the Breakfast buffet was below average anyway, so it would not be much of a loss. My wife and enjoyed the massage at the Simple Life very much after a day of diving. The hotel reception staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful. Not having to pay full price made this hotel difficult to review. We are going to return to Koh Tao in September but do not plan to stay at simple life next time. However we definitely plan to dive with Impian divers

We stayed in the cheaper room option but it was very nicely presented with all the things you needed apart from a dvd player. Wireless was good however slow in the evenings but this is expected with free wireless, beach and the bars easily accessible.

We have stayed here 3 different times and as always the staff is very nice and helpful and the rooms clean, and the included breakfast a nice way to start the morning. The restaurant does play the music quite loud at night, so try and get a room towards the back if you are sensitive to that kind of thing. They have a nice deal with the Simple Life Divers where if you make 6 dives they only charge 700 baht per dive which is about as good as you are going to get in Koh Tao.

Generally good, but didn't match my expectation”

1. location; 2. cleanliness; 3.Balcony

Generally good but didn't match my expectation. 1. Transportation Koh Tao is a small island, but there's quite a distance from/to resort to/from terminal and simple life divers. shuttle bus could be provided with booking and reservation in advance. However it took me very long time waiting for the shuttle bus, especially from divers to resort after diving. during my 4 days diving, I walked back to resort after 40 min waiting for once; shuttle bus took me back to resort for once, after more than 1 hour waiting; dive master helped taking me back to resort after more than 1 hour waiting, for twice. frankly speaking, I was so pissed off, wasting my time! 2. Breakfast You'll go to reception for breakfast coupon, and then have 1 combo out of 4 choice + buffet; if you have morning diving, they'll prepare breakfast box with 1 burger + some fruit + 1 bottle of water for you. Problem comes then, when I told the reception desk that 1 burger was not enough for me, she said I need to pay extra money if I need more... it's ridiculous, with buffet I could eat as much as possible, and you were asking for extra? I couldn't understand the logic at all.

SImple Life, literally”

Friendly and helpful staff, good amenities and locality.
Con for some people is that it not ON the beach, but its not that far.

We had a deluxe room which was poolside and had AC, mini bar which wasn't too expensive only 1 or 2 baht difference from the local amenities. The staff were very helpful and there was good service at breakfast, there was lots of choice at the buffet. The laundry service was a bit pricier than other places but you had the luxury of not having to take it far. The location for what we required was perfect as we were visiting friends and family, it meant we were walking distance (less than 5 minutes) from them and also Sairree beach, the shops were also accross the road. The hotel provided a transfer from and to the pier for us, we didn't even prebook the pick up. The pool area was always clean and is a pleasant oone there is a very pretty view from the pool too. On previous reviews we saw comments about building work noise, but we didn't notice it for a few days so there was very little noise, it's next door to the hotel, and did look as though they might be coming to the end of the work. All in all we could never imagine getting the quality service for even half the price in the UK and we had a fabulous stay at Simple Life.

Beautiful Resort in a great location”

great pool; good restaurant; close to the beach; good location

This hotel was great for what we were looking for. I am young, single girl and I was travelling with 2 others just like myself. Sometimes it is difficult to find a place that will accommodate 3 people without charging a significant amount more for an extra bed. This hotel had rooms that were made to accommodate 3 people. We even each had our own bed. The rooms were spacious and the bathroom was decorated so beautifully! We aren’t much into the party scene, so this was a great place to be because it was quiet, but also close enough to places that you could venture out and see what was going on around you. It was nice to have a t.v. so that we could just hang out in the room and relax and watch the movie channel (in English!). We also thoroughly enjoyed getting to lounge by the pool. On the second night of our stay, the air-con broke and we couldn’t figure out how to fix it. It was late at night and the man at the desk came to help. He called someone, but it was too late for anyone to come and fix it. They offered to move us into a smaller room that had air-conditioning and to reimburse us for the cost difference. They were very easy to work with and always accessible. We were even able to book a snorkeling trip through the front desk. I would definitely recommend this resort to anyone looking for a nice getaway to Koh Tao.

would stay here again”

the swimming pool was great and our room was kept so clean
few ammenities compared to other hotels (only has swimming pool and restaurant) (not really a bad con)

After we spent one night in a bungalow in Koh Phangan and got freaked out by lizards and other insects, arriving at Simple Life was a huge relief. There were no creatures in our room except a few flies, and everything was very clean. The staff were quite friendly and helpful, though seemed a little annoyed at times. The night staff does not speak any English. The pool is great and has quite a few lounging chairs, which the beach does not. The beach is nice for walking along, as there are tons of restaurants and bars near by, which allots for a very romantic atmosphere. The coffee, eggs, toast, and fruit at the breakfast buffet were super good, but other things were not as fresh. On the weekend, a few bars have fun events, and if you get a chance, see the drag show (The Queen's Cabaret)(every night)--it's highly entertaining, even for someone who's been to tons of drag shows before. Overall, we loved our stay and would like to return!

Pleasant stay”

Restaurant, location, pool

We had a nice 3 night stay. Great staff, really friendly and helpful, especially in restaurant. We got a free room upgrade which was good, room was comfortable, good size, nothing special but what you expect for the price. Our room overlooked a garden area which was nice, but inevitably meant there were quite a few insects to deal with. Breakfast was spot on, good selection. Location was good at north end of Sairee beach, 5-10mins walk from hotel, close to good choice of bars/restaurants/shops. Was a bit roudy on island as we arrived from mainland after the full moon party on Koh Phangan, and everyone seemed to come to Koh Tao after, but may not be an issue for others. Beach was nice, but not your pristine Thai white sand paradise. Would recommend as a base on Koh Tao.
