We were planning to stay 2 nights, but end up staying 6 nights! Palm leaf resort has the best of both worlds: it is on the quiet cosy nord end of Sairee beach, but only a 10 min walk to the more lively Sairee village with a lot of restaurants, bars and shops. The rooms are spacious and clean. Every...

We spent three nights here, and enjoyed our stay very much. We chose to stay in a room rather than a bungalow, and although the bungalows also looked quite nice, we were happy with our selection because the eight or so rooms were located at the back of the property, still in the lovely garden but very quiet and private....

We loved our stay here at The Palm Leaf. We were a bit disappointed at how busy Koh Tao was when we arrived but we're very happy that we chose this resort as it is almost at the end of Sairee beach and was nice and quiet but we often walked to one of the many bars along the beach...

The Palm Leaf Resort is lovely. The rooms are nice and clean, the staff is incredibly friendly and helpful and the restaurant is delicious (try the burgers!) as well as right at the beach. The location is just outside Sairee Beach, far enough away to be quiet but still in a comfortable walking distance. Don't go to the Bow Thong...

I've stayed here 4 times now as a solo traveler and with friends. The position is ideal ,on the quiet north end of the beach, but just a 5 minute walk to the lively central area. Nice clean rooms, in bungalows and villas just off the beach. Perfect spot!

Koh Tao is one of those islands that's definitely worth a stay if you want to get over the crowds of Koh Samui and Palm Leaf Resort offers up a little slice of paradise. Its not 5 star but it doesn't have to be because the beach, the view, the bungalows and breakfast on the beach make up for it....

Best beach in Koh Tao! The resort is very very welcoming, big rooms, very clean and neat. The resort restaurant is wonderful, very good food. The most important thing is the hospitality, the staff is super nice and very helpful, feels like they really care about their guest and would help with everything needed. We will defiantly come back!

We stayed at the Palm Leaf for four amazing nights and enjoyed every minute of it. Although located on the busy (relatively speaking, in Koh Tao terms :)) Sairee beach, the fact that this place is situated on the most northern part of the beach, away from the busier parts, makes it feel more like a private beach on one...
