Don't expect much more than some relaxation here. The staff is friendly and acomodating. Their English is good enough to get you what you need. The included buffet breakfast was great too. Be sure to bring mosquito spray for your legs. They will arrange rides to town for you at a reasonable price. Don't get your laundry done here, it's really expensive.
Had a great time at the Sensi Beach Hotel; however the building works that were underway on the beach were noisy at times. Theses are due to be completed early 2016 as far as we are aware.
Easy enough to walk into Sairee Beach / Village for more eating choices at night.
Free transfers to and from the ferry.
Let me start off by saying, the staff at Koh Tao Montra provided some of the best customer service I've ever had. As someone who has worked in hospitality, I am picky. The staff was quick and responsive, helpful with finding me the best deals, and more than anything else, friendly! They engaged in conversations with us daily, making sure that our stay on the island was positive.
What a wonderful hotel! We went to Koh Tao for diving but was glad not to be at one of the dive resorts. The Montra provided a peaceful retreat in an incredibly convenient location, easy walk from the pier and close to all the beach front restaurants and bars (though quiet at night). The open air lobby is lovely and there's a great pool. I'd order a fresh coconut at the bar and they would bring it to me at the beach which is about 10 steps away max. We originally booked for 3 nights and ended up staying for 7!
Wonderful place to stay and great location with awesome beach and short walk to town. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Dive shop and dive master Nume were both excellent. I would highly recommend staying there and using the dive shop ! Would love to back there again!!
My husband and I stayed for our honeymoon, staff is great, rooms are great, we stayed in a bungalow, so it was a work out to get to, but it was amazing. The beach there is absolutely stunning and clear water, beautiful bay. Only down side is its secluded and hard to get to the main strip, which we wanted to do for one night, but it was a lovely getaway
We were originally planning to stay here for 3 nights but extended our stay after the first day because we loved it so much. Our hut was right on the water and tucked away in the rocks. It took about 10 minutes to walk from the reception to our hut but it made it all part of the experience. Jansom bay was a 5 minute walk away and was absolutely incredible. The restaurant was also very good. Bamboo huts made our experience at Koh Tao amazing. We loved the rest of the island too. Highly recommend Bamboo Huts!!
Ko Tao, or Turtle Island, is a peaceful destination attracting scuba diving enthusiasts to its sandy shores off southern Thailand's Gulf Coast. Rugged dirt roads span the island and lead to Shark Bay, a favorite snorkeling spot, and South Sairee Beach, where weekly trips take divers to Sail Rock. Dive schools with attached resorts, bungalows, and villas are among Ko Tao's accommodation options.
