We really liked this 'resort' (although I wouldn't call it a resort). Our room was fantastic on the upper floor of a bungalow with a private view of the resort and glimpses of the beach area. It was quiet and the balcony was superb for relaxing and having breakfast (ask them to bring it up) and drinks. Buy mosquito coils...

Friendly and helpful staff, relaxed atmosphere, clean air conditioned rooms (we had the deluxe villa - two connected rooms for a family with three older children), close to restaurants, on the beach, quiet end of Sairee Beach.

We stayed in Palm Leaf for 2 nights on our travels, but I could have stayed here much longer. They have a variety of rooms available from budget beach huts to water front villas. The resort itself is fairly basic in terms of services but the rooms were lovely, it was right on the beach and only a short walk...

My wife and two kids (6 and 7 years) had a week at this idyllic end of Sairee beach and it was great. The proximity to a lovely beach on the quiet north end was exactly what we were looking for with its own little reef and some nice snorkeling and was gentle and shallow (as long as too many...

We are a family of four from Canada, with two boys ages 12 and 14, and we are seasoned travellers. We loved this resort. We had one of the beachfront cabins, less than 20 meters from the water. The resort is at the quiet end of the beach (which suited us nicely) but only a short walk into the village....

I found this hotel totally OK. We had a Villa Deluxe about 30m from the beach, with 2 terrasses. It is on the north of the Sairee beach: good location because it is more quiet (we don't here anything from the music and bars) but be aware you'll have to walk ~10min to the center. If you book via booking.com...

I'd read really mixed reviews before booking Palm Leaf - I was confused as Palm Leaf had generally ok/good reviews whereas the sister resort Bow Thong (which is literally next door) had Terrible reviews. The resort I found actually pricey for what it was - and when we got to our bungalow I was slightly disappointed - one tiny cupboard...

We arrived on Koh Tao with nowhere booked, after riding around all afternoon looking for somewhere to stay we came across this place. they didn't have any rooms until the next day but being as we were out all night it didn't matter.

Would recommend this hotel to anyone. We arrived having booked the smallest rooms but they offered us an upgrade for 500b a night which we took as the room had a view of the sea. The sunset from our balcony was amazing. Its a nice quiet location on Sairee Beach only a 5 min walk down the beach to the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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
