These bungalows are super beautiful and great location away from the parties. You can walk along the beach to the main area or even the pier. Lots of food and shops. I highly recommend doing the snorkeling trip you can get at this resort for 500-600 bhatt. It's a full day full of 5 snorkeling stops with a final stop...

If you're going to Koh Tao then Palm Leaf Resort is the place to be. We spent about a week in there in the seafront bungalow and it was absolutely amazing. You can watch the sunset from the deck sipping coconut juice and enjoy all the incredible colours changing in the sky. The Bungalow (deluxe) was very spacious and impeccably...

We came upon Palm Leaf while walking along Sairee Beach searching for a new place to stay. It is perfectly located down the beach - a convenient balance between the fun in the village and the quiet, more relaxed side of Sairee. Sunbeds lined the beach and were only for customers, which was really nice. Perfect for the sunset every...

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!
