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 manager was extremely friendly, and gave us beach beads and mattresses to sleep on if we...

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...

The manager of the hotel it´s really really nice. The first room that we stayed (Standart) it´s really really small, and the bathroom a little bit old. The Standart room didn´t have a TV. But the Bunglow with the view (sea view) it was a little bit bigger, and the bathroom was huge! The restaurant was good, but THE SERVICE...

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....

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.

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
