The location and setting is the best aspect of this resort being right at the top end of the beach away from all the idiots. The service was friendly and accommodating and the wifi was fast and the room was very clean and in good working order. For me the disappointment was the food, it was never great but I...

A truly relaxing little resort nestled right on the beach ( foto shows view from our bungalow). Stroll down the beach and you will find restaurant and bars with cussioned seating overviewing the sea. Fire artists at night. Very friendy people at the resort. A little bar. Room was cleaned daily. Bug bathroom. Not luxury but nicely build bungalows. Very...

Although the location is on Sairee Beach a bit removed from the volume at night (which is nice), it lacks the cozy and romantic feeling we had hoped for on the beach. Even though they claim to have wifi, our bungalow didn't retrieve it whatsoever. The only way to access it was in the common area by reception and even...

Came here to celebrate my 30th, on check out a Thai lady called Fung demanded we pay 500 bhat for the scooter we rented the day before in damaged stating we had 'dropped' it. Completely untrue and seeing as she didn't have the bike there to show us or any photos and we dropped the bike off at 9pm at...

Two friends spent 6 nights on that beautiful island. Coming back after almost 7 years, I discovered that Koh Tao changed much: ibiza style beach bars, pub crawls, uncomfortable techno music and so on. My old guesthouse (Silver Sand) is now situated in the middle of that. So we looked for an alternative and found it in the Palm Leaf...

I love Koh Tao, it's definitely one of the most beautiful places in Thailand. The Palm Leaf Resort made our stay even better, the beach front chalet has a lovely view. Nothing better than waking up looking at Koh Tao's clear blue sea. The resort is located at the end of Sairee beach, about 10 min from all the beach...

We stayed there for 4 nights. The location-super. A short walk from the center but far enough so u can feel isolated from all that partying when u want. Nice beach and sunbeds. We had a superior villa which was great,clean,lovely balcony and nice view. U feel a little like you r in the middle of the jungle.... Didn't eat...

I loved it. It is a little paradise away from the partying. Lovely and helpful staff. Breakfast is not included but the restaurant is cheap enough. The room was clean and so was the beach and the water. We could hear our next door neighbours because of a door (locked) between us... luckily enough they weren't noisy.. I'd definitely recommend...

The location is great, the rooms were large and clean but there were some small issues like a lack of closet and drawer space which when you are staying for a week is kind of a drag. A nice place but could just use a little more management attention to make it perfect. Still definitely recommend it.

You find us at the north end strip of Sairee Beach. Palm Leaf offers the best view at the bay with its grey boulders and the colourful sea. Just a 5 min walking distance away from the village, it is still a very calm and private place to be. Moreover it is the only snorkeling side at Sairee beach.Set in a nice garden our lovingly furnished bungalows and rooms await your arrival. ... more   less
