We rented a superior bungalow here in November 2013. The standard is really good, good size, good bathroom with hot shower. Staff was helpfull, good restaurant for breakfast/ lunch. We did not have dinner, but the drinks were good - happy hour from 5-7. I would say it is the best location on Suri beach! Good for snorkeling and chilling....

We have visited Ko Tao many times. Stayed here for the first time this year with our 6 mth old baby for a week. A family friendly resort in a great location. Great beach for kids. The Restraunt food we found to be best on the island and staff are so friendly and helpful. The Restraunt is what makes this...

This is a great area to stay while on Ko Tao. Its cheap and very close to the three islands and just a ten minute beach walk to town and all the restaurants and bars. No pool in the resort. Breakfast was not up to standard. Rooms are comfy and nice with big balcony. Was charged 100b per person for...

We stayed in a bungalow second back from the sea. The size of the room is good and the bathroom was huge with a hot, powerful shower, much different to our time in koh phi phi. The air con worked well and was quite. There is a really nice outside area with a recumbent bench which can easily fit a...

Nice and warm welcome, friendly staff, beautiful bungalows, beautiful and peaceful beach ... What else do you need? I read some other reviews about prices being too high; well yes, this was also our most expensive stay in Thailand, but that was for the quietness. Anywhere else on the island was party party 'till the early hours and what good...

I stayed at the Palm Beach recently when i cam to visit my family. my cabin could have barely been nearer the water and basically I echo William's comments save that I didn't swim that far. I was upgraded for the last night and I think I might go for the superior on my next trip but the standard was...

This is your spot. Close enough to walk to the main restaurants and far enough to dampen the sounds. I came here for four days and stayed for 30. It is not the cheapest place to stay and by all means not a fancy place. The rooms are clean and neat and spacious. By far the main reason I stayed...

We stayed in a bungalow for 4 nights in August 2013. Amazing resort, perfect location (Sairee North, not too busy at night but still very close to the main bars and restaurants), very clean, nice staff, wonderful view over the bay, clean beach, good restaurant. Would definitely go back.

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
