Simple Life runs two resorts on Koh Tao, both situated along Sairee Beach.
Offers a wide range, from dorm rooms to beachfront villas at the south end of Sairee Beach.
Koh Tao has the perfect mix of scenery and comfort.
Against a backdrop of breathtaking island scenery, beautiful beaches and incredible marine life, you also have access to comfortable accommodation and great restaurants and bars to eat and socialize.
Unlike other touristy areas of Thailand, Koh Tao still maintains a rustic island charm. But that doesn’t mean the only thing on the menu is Thai Fried rice!
We’re spoilt for choice with a massive selection of Thai and international cuisine at very reasonable prices. Especially around Sairee Beach and village, which has become the main focal point for Koh Tao, and the best area to stay.
Within close walking distance of Simple Life Divers there are many bars and restaurants so whatever you’re after you can find it nearby. Here’s a selection of our favorite Koh Tao nightlife spots and places to eat:
The Brother Bar & Grill: All live Premiership games and F1, Regular live Rugby, Live Music, And a great place to start your night!
Simple Life Restaurant: Our own restaurant at the resort serves a giant menu of Thai and western cuisine. Try the popular BBQ kebabs, pizzas and fantastic authentic style Thai food; spicy Thai salads, green curries, Tom Yam soup, seafood and much more.
