Simple life is in a great location on Sairee Beach. The bar food is nice and reasonably priced, with great offers like all you can eat pizza days and happy hours a few times a week. Rooms are basic but lovely and clean. Bed is comfortable. The pool area is quite small, and there are very little beds. This was a bit disappointing, but the beach is very close. Overall it was the perfect location for a few nights stay in Koh Tao and we really enjoyed it.

We decided to go with Simple Life for our Open Water certification; we loved it so much we ended up finishing our Advanced PADI as well! We felt comfortable with the small class size and the flexibility of our program. Our instructor, Isabelle, was extremely knowledgeable and professional, and helped relieve our nerves as first time scuba divers and made our learning process extremely smooth.

I highly recommend going with Simple Life, as you will find a great diving community, helpful instructors and the toolkit to go on beautiful dives.

Beautiful hotel very comfortable lovely pool. Friendly staff always willing to help.Receptionist found me a dentist when my crown came off and within an hour it was fixed. Right in the centre yet a quiet haven.Do the boat trips around the island and see the coral. Collection and return was all well organised and we had 2 great days on the water.

Room tip: Ask for an upstairs room away from Reception. As on the ground floor people walk by all day and look into your room.

It’s got all the basics it’s right at the start of the Town so everything in In the area is walkable . Rooms are fine , The Reception staff are very very helpful and nice . The massage at simple life looks a bit dated but was easily the best massage We had on Koh Tao I would highly recommend it . The Pool area was fine .
The WiFi in the room is hopeless it’s better in the restaurant where there food isn’t bad but I would recommend that you don’t book and pay for breakfast as it’s not very good , even the Tea is pretty cold and stewed. Also be warned in Thailand my only usual complaint is the beer is never old enough and this place it’s practically warm . Better get a cold one from the 7/11 over the road.

We stayed here for our first night in Koh Tao (we’d already booked to move around a few different places) in the standard double room.

The pick up from the pier was really helpful and easy, and the staff were friendly as well. The room and bathroom were both very spacious (bigger than the slightly more expensive room we stayed in closer to the beach at a different resort, which is the benefit of being marginally further from the beach). It was also clean, with plenty of room to put bags and hang clothes.

The location was good, it is on the road which runs behind Sairee Beach, so although it is not on the beach you can walk to the beach in 2 minutes. We also had no issues with noise from the road either.

Our only issue was the air con which didn’t work as well as it could have done (as we were only staying one night it was okay).
