4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014 via mobile

We've just stayed here for the last week. Very relaxing place. The kids practically lived in the pool. Hotel has a taxi and travel booking service. There are plenty of sitting and hammock areas. The bungalows are set in the hillside which is pretty steep. Not the best place to be if you have mobility issues. Lots of lovely trees and flowers throughout plus a stack of mad butterflies, cool insects, geckos and a tokay. Loved it.

Stayed here for 7 nights.

The positive things:
the view over Had Yao bay is perfect and the best.
The houses are placed perfectly towards the sea and privately so that no one looks into the bungalow.
The restaurant at the resort serves good dishes, the prices are fair.
The staff are friendly, but not in the normal Thai-style.

The negative things:
The bungalows is not in good condition, our bathroom had a strong smell from the sewer.
The surroundings are not clean. Some of the staff, should clean up.

This resort could with a few changes be a luxury resort because of it's views and location...
If you are disabled or don't like stairs - stay another place ;)

When we first arrived at high life we were really disappointed as when we entered our room it was filthy!! There were black hairs in the bathroom and all over the bed and the lock didn't even close the door properly and a ladder to climb up to the top ! Luckily they gave us another room, which was a lot cleaner but still a disappointment for the price. We had a garden view which was nice but if I were to stay there again I would definitely pay extra for a sea view! The pool was beautiful and so was the beach but do be careful of the rocks on the beach because I nearly stud on something black and spikey scary!!! The food was disappointing and small at high life but if you venture down the beach the beach bars do great Thai food! As much as I loved my experience as high life I wouldn't stay here again I felt it was disappointing and the staff weren't very helpful , make sure you check your bills we got charged for someone's meal! Good views, chilled atmosphere and good location.

If you want peace and relaxation come here, if u want the party scene prob best to look elsewhere. The pool was great and easy access to the beach. Some reviews say it's steep but it's fine! Foods good and not to pricey. Staff friendly. Rooms were ok bathroom was very average. If your a light sleeper maybe take so ear plugs as the night time animals come out and start singing most of the night with quite strange noises haha! Overall def recommend we had a great stay!

We came from north Sairee Beach, Koh Tao which was very concentrated and poorly planned but a fantastic beach. Suratthani beach in Koh Phangan was a beautiful, quiet with lots of space. (The beach swimming is not great). High Life is superb. We loved our bungalow. It had an ocean outlook (but there are a few that are right on the ocean--next time we will rent one of these). It was simple with a very big comfortable bed, the furniture choice was a bit chaotic, the bathroom was sufficient although the water didn't drain very well. The balcony had a hammock and this was a highlight. The top cupboard of the clothes storage had termites but we didn't use it. The staff are friendly. The restaurant & bar and THE VIEW are outstanding!!! We loved it. The area was broken up into 4 different areas, one including hammocks whilst you ate. It is perched on the cliff overlooking the entire beach--what a beautiful view. The food was fantastic and a long selection of food items. when you order, you write what you ordered in your room notebook (based on an honour system) which we loved about the place. We are going to return for the peace, quiet, the view, restaurant and the comfortable rooms at a reasonable price. At the top of the driveway you can rent a motorbike for the day so this is a must to run around the area to explore.

Room Tip: Enjoy and consider the more expensive bungalows on the water which come with there own bathtubs on t...

The best place to relax and have a rest. Delicious food, very nice guys. Close to the beach. However be ready to sweam in special boots as there are many rocks and marine urchins. Shops with fruits are far away. The place to stay there and just relax.

Planned to stay here 4 nights but only stayed 1. When we arrived we had to wait 20 mins to check in. There were 4/5 staff memebers around but we had to wait for a guy to arrived just to open a book which was on the desk so we could sign. Dont see why. No apology for the delay. Room was basic. Door did not close fully. Restaurant has nice view of bay. We looked at pool but area around it was dirty so we went down to beach instead. There a pack of dogs tried to attack us and there was a dead fish on the beach. Not hotels fault but seen as pool appeared dirty it left nowhere to go and relax. Next morning went down to reception and all they said was "u are leaving right?" in a tone which implied get out of the room. It was 8.30. we did not stay for breaky as a result. Its a pity the staff were so unfriendly as it could be a nice hotel if they were more friendly and they cleaned up the pool area. Their loss as they missed out on 4 more nights. We found a much nicer hotel up the road.
