Nice stay”
Stayed in the budget room for a short stay. Not aesthetically pleasing from the outside and no view but rooms were great and clean. It’s a 1 minute walk to the beach and 30 seconds into main hotel. Stunning pool at sunset aswell. Reception desk were kind and very helpful.

Nice hotel, book the boutique room”
We we're upgraded to a boutiqur room which is great, breakfast is in the adjacent restaurant and is (basic but very) good. Beach is nearby and the staff speaks excellent enlish and are very helpfull. At the beach nice cocktails and fire dansers. Would recommend to go snorkling, book a daytrip!

Too much money for what the owners deliver”
The location is good, middle of Sairee Beach & away from the noise. The staff are very helpful & friendly. B/fast okay. However it is overpriced for what you get. The Standard room I got was dark, smelt of damp & the bathroom full of mosquitoes with holes in the roof & netting. I upgraded immediately. The Boutique Standard was far better BUT still way overpriced. The rooms do not come with kettle & coffee/ tea facilities. This is only for Delux rooms. I was told Mgmt doesn’t supply. For nearly 2000bt a night it should be. I argued the point (3x) that I’ve stayed in hotels that charge 1/3 the price & this IS supplied. A short time later I was presented with a kettle. (I think the staff supplied it not Mgmt.) Also on 2 days I was supplied with towels that were tattered down the sides. If I could show a photo I would. Mgmt was described to me as Cheap Charlie’s. Looks like their money is going into new buildings. Water pressure from the shower not strong. Overall ok but overpriced.

A lovely stay”
The staff is incredibly warm and helpful. Great location near beach and night life, but still quiet so you can get a good night’s rest. Breakfast was a nice touch and they even packed me breakfast for my early morning dive’s! Spacious room and terrace. A lovely central location, wonderful staff, and breakfast made this a great choice for my five nights while getting dive certified.

Disappointing mix up”
There is the SIMPLE Life Resort and SIMPLE Life Dive. They are somehow connected but different. We got booked at both places (my error, I think) and ended up staying at the expensive resort. It was nice enough but very pricey and not on the beach. Diving was a blow out due to weather. Will come again sometime but make sure I stay at the dive shop location

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!

relaxing resort with friendly desk staff, who helped us book a snorkeling tour and transportation; reliable housekeeping staff; affordable massages on-site; decent breakfast if you get there early. would definitely book again if I was in ko Tao. five minute walk to sairee beach. they even surprised us with a pick up from the pier when we first arrived after a harrowing ferry ride due to very choppy waves.

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!

I really enjoyed my 6 day stay”
Very warm welcome from the manager who continued to be smiling & helpful throughout the stay. she even gave me fashion advice for full moon party. :) it rained heavily during my stay & the pool, garden & paths were flooded (3 foot deep). the workied hard to drain it. & the rooms are high so not affected. really good breakfast is included, lots of choices. Hotel is set back 2 or 3 streets from beach front, but a very short walk. nice big room. really great staff.

Simple life was good and fun. didn't really expect much, but was totally satisfied with the whole experience. I went around NYE, the whole island was full (and flooding) however they had control over everything and advised us where to go.
