Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This guesthouse is a Place to be! I really liked this Place and would stay there again! They offer also free bottlewater. I also got a early check in- there. Rooms are in the upper floor and the stairs are pretty steep so not recommend people with bad legs.

Clean, beautiful rooms with everything you need. A/C and fan, fridge & TV. Highly convenient for the best dive school on the island, Master Divers. Talk to them about a combined dive/accommodation package.

The most amazing guesthouse you could ever ask for. A huge recommadation of Utopia Guesthouse. If you go to Koh Tao, this is the place to stay, you wont miss out this wonderful and quite guesthouse with the Best and sweetest manager Marie-Eve and staff you can ask and wish for. The were all so friendly and welcoming. I cant recommend this place enough and Marie-Eve made our stay to the greatest vacation for us. First of all she came to the ferry and welcomed us with a huge hug and helped us bring our luggage the short walk to the guesthouse, since we were travelling with two small kids. When checking in, Marie was so kind to rearrange our room, to please our little family in the Best way, which we really appreciate. The rooms at Utopia are spacious and great cleaning and laundry service. We had a beautiful view to the beach from one of our rooms. From the big rooftop terracce you have a great view towards the beach, Bay and sunsets. The guesthouse is located in a very quite neighborhood with a minimum of traffic and access to a great beach 30 meters away. The reception and lounge area is really pleasant and welcoming. Overall an amazing hospitality at this guesthouse with the greatest staff. We will any day stay here again, since we really felt this as our home for our little family for the two weeks we ended up being here, after keeping extending our stay at Utopia and Koh Tao. Furthermore she was very helpful with all kind of inquiries and questions, both regarding renting scooters, diveshops, ferry schedules, recommending places to go and see and eat. Especially the recommadation of Coconut Monkey next door did we use everyday the two weeks we stayied at Utopia, some days even two or three times a Day. It So good food and a Nice Vibe at the beach. Our warmest recommadation, and cant wait to come back and thank you Marie-Eve for making our stay so pleasant. Kind regards Maya & Mathias from Denmark

I booked the Utopia Guesthouse before I learned it is owned by the same people how run Master Divers. The rooms were quite spacious with a well stocked fridge (which I didn’t use). Air conditioning worked and hot water for the shower never failed. Only down side (reason for not getting 5 stars) the curtains were a bit thin which let in too much light from the street-lighting.

I had a really nice stay at Utopia. I was taking a dive course at Master Divers, which is about 10 meters away, and it was a great combination. The room was clean, the staff was really friendly and helpful, and I felt like it was a good value. There are lots of places to get food and coffee within easy walking distance.

We loved our stay at Utopia. We were in Koh Tao for our open water dive course with Master Divers which was just next door. We felt that we had the perfect set up during our stay. Utopia Guesthouse is very clean and well run with good AC and an additional fan. It was then 5 steps from Master Divers and 10 steps from Coconut Monkey (a fantastic breakfast and lunch cafe). Definitely recommend!

We stayed an entire week at Utopia Guesthouse while completing our PADI course with Master Divers. The rooms are spotless, the AC worked without a glitch despite the high heat and the little fridge kept our water cold. The location was perfect for us: 10m from Master Divers, and the host (Tic) was very friendly and helpful. I took pictures of two of the other rooms, ours being a bit of a mess...

Very close to the pier, which was good as I didn't have far to walk having just got off the Lomprayaha boat with my big backpack. The guesthouse is also close to the Songserm boat drop-off. Everything you'd need is closeby; the market, pharmacy, boat ticket offices, dive shops, 7-11 and a few restaurants and bars. A particular treat in the evening is watching the sunset from the roof terrace. The guesthouse is located in a quiet part of the island yet is not too far from the busier areas (a short walk along the coast to Sairee or a 2 minute ride on a mototaxi). I really enjoyed my stay there recently, it became my home away from home whilst travelling in South Thailand. The ladies that run the place really made me feel welcome and most evenings I'd just stay in, eating dinner with them, drinking Leos and playing Rummy. I left Koh Tao having made some good new friends.
