Owned by Dave & Paul, who in turn are kept in line by the ever effecient chief cook & bottle washer Noo and guarded by the excellently behaved Kuhn the dog, I cannot rate this place highly enough. Set in peaceful surroundings some 15 minutes easy walk or 2 minutes by scooter/car from the hustle of central Lamai, you're close enough to the action but far enough away not to suffer with the noise.
As well as the resort being completely refurbished and remodelled to a high standard, it is as previously stated kept immaculately clean too. It boasts a lovely covered terrace where meals are served and the small bar is situated, an adjacent small garden and pool with jacuzzi area. The range of Thai, English & Continental food that Noo prepares is to a high standard and she somehow manages to cook perfect fresh chips that even your grandmother would be proud of? Additionally, if you don't want to go out, the peacefulness and serenity of the place is amazing!
Paul & Dave as hosts are amongst the best, willing to engage and help their guests as little or as much as you require. Whether it be collection from the air or ferry port, simple advice on where to go, a friendly chat across the bar or even a lift down town with them occasionally joining you for a few beers, nothing is too much for them. It is truly more like visiting old mates than a holiday.
I would highly recommend this place for singles (25+), couples & families of all ages and if I hadn't already paid for my stay on Koh Tao I would have easily stayed another week. Thanks all for a lovely stay and hopefully see you again soon!
