Reviewed 15 July 2014 via mobile

This place is excellent if you are looking to be close to sairee beach but slightly away from the nightlife and partying.

It's owner (or the guy that runs it) is really friendly, happy to help and always around.

You are booking into bungalows and paying very little a night so you should not go expecting luxury 5* standard. What you do get is a clean, well equipped with modern facilities and inviting bedroom/bungalow which will suit a couples needs when holidaying in Koh Tao.

We rented motorbikes from this place too and it was 200B for the whole day. New bikes with little milage on it, from a fair guy who isn't out to rip you off.

They offer laundry service which is good and seem to cater to all our needs (tea and coffee outside, fridge inside)

This place is perfect to explore koh tao from, 5 mins from town along a little track which is not horrendous to walk down at night like some other reviews say - it's a 400m (2 min walk) and they give you a flashlight.

A perfect cheap and lovely place to stay!!

My friend and I booked 2 nights here in July and ended up staying for 8! This is a great little resort with comfortable rooms and good bathroom facilities. The rooms are spacious and come with good air con and a fan. This is a small establishment and the man who runs it is lovely. Really friendly and catered to our needs. The little brown cat Pi Lee (the owners cat) made our stay even better! We were sad to leave the secret garden but had to carry on with our travels.
The only downside to this resort is that the rooms are not cleaned on a daily basis HOWEVER if you ask the man he will happily clean your room and change your towels.
If I ever return to koh tao I will definitely be booking to stay here again! Well worth it and a very reasonable price !

This resort brand new, very clean, with updated amenities and a great path lined with various fruit trees. The staff is very nice, and there are water buffalo that walk through the little village.

This resort is also called Sairee Secret Garden on Agoda. It is a little tricky to locate, but ask around under the name infinity resort and that's the correct location.

Initially we had great difficulty finding "infinity resort" due to the lack of signage. The directions from Thai people tends to consist of a rapid extension of the arm along with a sharp whip of the wrist to conclude. We took a gamble on our motorbikes down a sandy old track and at last we found it. Ironically the lack of signage was due to recent name change to "secret garden". On arrival we were greeted with big smiles from the owner and a very nice clean room. We'd recently been staying in the centre of koh tao in a cheap smelly fan room so the air con, cable tv and hot shower for the same price that we were originally paying was greatly received. The staff are very pleasant. The hotel is a good 10 min walk in to the centre but fear not, motorbike rental is also included which I would highly recommend taking up. Just take it easy on the sandy track leading to the hotel.

The rooms were very nice, I think they are very new. It is a very quiet place to stay. If you want to be near the beach, this is not the place for you.
The entrance road is an un-lit dirt road, take a flashlight!! Or you are going to have a bad time! We were not warned about this when we arrived and had to find our way back in the middle of the night by iphone light.
The bathroom drains smelt terrible, keep your door shut.
They also asked for a 1000THB deposit on arrival, which we were not warned about.
The curtains were not big enough to cover the windows, so people from other rooms can definitely see in at night.
Despite all of these things, rooms were clean and beds were very nice and comfortable. They also rent bikes at a very good rate,
I would probably stay here again.

On some brochure it is called infinity luxury resort, although it looks like its still at its debut, there is a big gap with this. First no toilet paper or soap provided, no food available.and of course don't expect the room to be done during your stay. The bungalow are very pretty, and the decoration has a lot of charm, but there is nothing on the terrace: no chair, no hammock... And last thing, it's at the end of a long, dusty and unlighted path. So I would recommended it for people who are thinking of staying a bit on the island, looking for quiet and still charming but a bit away from the hippie new divers. Perfect for people with a backpacker soul who still will enjoy a real shower. The large fridge make it perfect to stock on food, and you could hang your own hammock. Also rent a scooter!( get them for 150 baht/day from people on Main Street)- no pool or restaurant- not on the beach

Room Tip: The a/c room are a bit larger than the fan one, more luminous and not as many mosquitos.

This property is set well back off the road down a lane which affects the review. Its a nice place, quiet well built etc but it is just too far. We hired scooters at £4 a day which helped but then you dont really want to be driving at night and the sandy road on the lane was a bit slippery at times. Once at the main road (up to 10 mins walk) you cross over for another sort walk to the beautiful beach. Rooms were a good size with a nice comfortable bed. There is however no hot water and as mentioned in other reviews some furniture to sit outside on the lovely balcony would be a bonus. There are also no on site facilities for food etc.
I did like the place but it was the location that was the problem. I must just mention the guy that runs the place who was always helpful and always seemed to be working hard

Room Tip: All Bungalows looked the same
