    Wish we didn’t leave”

    Sun smile was by far one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. The rooms are pristine, the location is 2 minuets from the beach and Sairee town Centre. The rooms were cleaned well everyday and they provide water, coffee and fresh towels every morning. Above and beyond we became friends with the staff, they are always so friendly, pick you up and drive you to the pier, help you to learn simple thai phrases and have tons of advice on what to do/where to go on the island. They even gave my Mom a birthday present which was just the sweetest. The family who runs the hotel is doing things right and helped to make our stay on Koh Tao really special. I hope to return soon!

    One of our favourite hotels whilst travelling SE Asia. The owners go above and beyond and are so welcoming and friendly it really made our stay! The room itself was spacious, even had a little sofa and coffee table area, big fridge and bowls and cutlery provided if you wanted to buy in your own breakfast. Tea and coffee and lots of free water included. Spotlessly clean, daily housekeeping and really good WiFi. Do not hesitate to book this hotel.

    Best room and staff we have experienced in South East Asia ”

    Our double room is one of the best we have experienced in our 4 months of travelling. They offer free pick up from the pier and back. Each of the members of staff are brilliant, they physically can not do enough for you! You get one big and two small bottles of water every day, they offer beach towels and books to take to the beach (2 minutes away). The room is so spacious, massive comfy bed, 2 lounge chairs, coffee table (free tea and coffee) and a huge balcony. The only downside is that the Wi-Fi, although they have 4 to choose from, are all really slow. Would definitely recommend staying here!

Sun Smile Lodge als provides free pick up and free towels and books for the beach ☺️☺️ - It's the little things that make backpackers happy. We'd love to come back😊.

    good minds”

    The first impression of Tao people's is a quite stuborn i thought, and usually they aren't care about us. I tought it's a tendancy of this area's people. But this lodge's minds is quite high. Everytime they try to ask of any trouboles and care to solve it out. I stayed many places of the island, but this is wondful.

They dropped us off our next accommodation for free even we stayed just one night here. Also they are provide beach towel, have nice balcony. Very clean!!!

    I had 4-nights stays with sun smile which was really awesome. The host and all the staffs there were super nice. And the location is good, about 3 mins walk to the beach and 3 mins walk to the “main” street. The room is clean and spacious, with the basic facilities. And I think the only suggestion is that the water is not that hot when taking shower in the late night, but completely fine in the day time.

    Zero complaints about my time at Sun Smile. Spacious room, with a balcony with a reasonably nice view. 4 free water bottles every day. Helpful, non-pushy onward ferry ticket booking. Was perfectly located for me near my dive school and the main strip, but also just a 3-5 minute walk from the beach itself. Would definitely stay here again if I return to Tao!

    Brilliant hotel, best staff ”

    The room we had was lovely with a nice balcony. It was very spacious and clean, with towels, beach towels, a hairdryer, safe, TV and fridge. It also has a fan and air con. My only complaint is that the mattress is very hard, but other than that the room was great. The hotel is very close to the beach (maybe 2 mins), as well as Sairee town where all the bars and restaurants are. It’s also very close to many supermarkets of various sizes. Despite this, the hotel is down a slightly quieter street so you don’t hear any noise. The best thing about this hotel is the staff. We have found that Thai people employed in hospitality are generally not too hospitable (land of smiles? I don’t think so), but the staff here are incredibly friendly and made an effort to know and remember our names for the entire stay. They will go out of their way to make sure you are happy, which we have found to be rare during our 3 months of backpacking around Asia. We would definitely recommend this hotel!

    Helpful staff, great customer service”

    We were there during the raining season and was due to get back to Koh Samui on our last day there. However Koh Samui was flooded and we were alerted by the helpful receptionist (sorry his name slipped my mind) and he offered to call our hotel in Koh Samui to check on the situation in the area. It was messy as the area we were going to stay next in Koh Samui was flooded and we had alrdy booked and paid for our hotel. Trying to arrange for refund and rebook another hotel at a new area (which is not under flood water) was a hassle but they (Sun Smile Lodge, Koh Tao) was accomodating, helpful and very patient in assisting us. 👍🏾👍🏾 to their customer service. Good location too, perfect distance away from the noise of bars but close enough for convinience to everything. The Triple Room was nice that overlooks some greeneries.

    Fantastic stay in Koh Tao”

    Me and my girlfriend stayed here for 3 nights and arrived early after getting the overnight bus from Bangkok and we were checked in straight away even though it was quite early. We were greeted very warmly and were given lots of useful information on things to do on the island and tips on the best Thai places to eat to avoid tourist traps. The owner and rest of the staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were very clean and spacious and we were given fresh bottles of water and coffee every morning. Even though there is no pool, the hotel is only 5 minutes from the beautiful Sairee beach and was very close to lots of bars and restaurants and a 7/11. We also rented a motorbike for only 150 baht a day and had no problems. They organised tickets for both a snorkelling trip around the island and a ferry to koh phangan both included free transport to the pier. Overall an amazing stay and if we ever visit Koh Tao again we will definitely be staying here.

    Great choice for budget travelers who are looking for a bit more comfort. Staff was very helpful and provided pick-up service from the pier even though I was staying for just one night. The hotel is situated nearby the center of Sairee village, which is convenient and still without any noise disturbance. Highly recommended!

    staff service, room large and airy, location close to the beach and shops

    The room was lovely and spacious. The staff were helpful and often exceeded our requests, everything was in good working order and the location is excellent. The only better location would be right on the beach but we didn't mind the short walk down. They also provide free beach towels and umbrellas whenever you head down to the beach so no need to pack in extra towels for that purpose.
