My wife and I stayed two weeks at the Thalassa Hotel. It was an experience that has fully satisfied. We would like to officially thank Therry, the manager of the hotel, to the exquisite politeness and professionalism with which they greeted us and escorted to our stay. Beautiful room and pleasant environment. When we return to Ko Tao we would definitely be back Thalassa guests of the hotel!

I have slept 2 nights in this hotel, I would have liked to stay longer, but they were fully booked.
The hotel is managed by some French people, the style is modern and western and it gave us a good impression. The hotel is in a 3 floors building, at the ground floor there is the reception and a bar/restaurant. The first and second floor are for the rooms.
The breakfast is included in our reservation and you can choose between 3 different set, classic, french or healthy.
It is located in a small street between the main road and the seaside.
The evening the road is animated with many people looking for restaurants and shops.
The first evening was heavy raining so we have had dinner in the restaurant, we asked for some tapas and the one with jamon serrano was really fantastic. It's quite strange find a so good jamon serrano far from Spain!
The morning when we left there was a problem with their credit card reader, the machine wasn't able to read any of our 4 credit cards and we didn't have enough cash because it was the last day in Thailand. The management asked us to withdraw money to ATM with Visa and they refunded the commission the bank had taken. We really appreciate their fast solution of the problem, really great.
I hope to visit again this hotel in the future.

Thalassa was hands down the nicest hotel we stayed at in Thailand. The rooms are modern, relatively spacious and clean. It is located on this gorgeous lane way street, surrounded by shop stalls and restaurant options. The breakfast is delicious (180 baht each) and you can have it in the downstairs bistro. I honestly cannot recommend this hotel enough, it's an absolute gem. We even happened to leave behind an iPad (oops) and they organised to have it ferried to us the same afternoon at no extra charge. Do yourself a favour and stay here, it really is the best.

Room Tip: Book a room at the back of the hotel. You won't have street views but it is quieter.

In the middle of busy Sairee this was our peaceful retreat. We had the best of two worlds, hectic life of Sairee beach and the wonderful hotel Thalassa. Thierry is a very nice guy, very helpful and has a lot of knowledge. The food is tasty and surprising and we highly recommend it. The rooms are spacious, clean and the staff is very friendly. On top of this all: good free WiFi! We loved staying at Thalassa.

Great, new, clean hotel. Standard room is not too small, but the space is well utilized. There is a large counter across the front of the room that is great for storing luggage etc. They also have a large area for hanging, and and retractable laundry line in the bathroom(great for hanging wet bathing suits etc).

Overall I loved the style of the hotel. The service was good, very relaxed but could answer all my questions about the area. Breakfast was tasty, but I agree with another reviewer, it was a little slow and one day the food was cold before we received it. But you have an option of 3 breakfast styles and all are large and filling.

It is a short walk to the beach and close to many great restaurants.

I would definitely recommend staying here!

We (a couple around the age of 30) stayed 10 nights in july 2014.
The hotel is brandnew, nice and clean.
It´s built out of concrete, not wood.
The rooms are on the 1st and 2nd floor an can be reached by the staircase.

Sometimes the plugholes stink, but this happens a lot around asia.
Still you get a lot of comfort (and completely spider- and bug-free)
for small money in this hotel.

The 3 kinds of breakfast (English, french, healthy) are a good start in the day,
the tapas are a tasty option in the evening.

The staff of the hotel ist friendly, the laundry service good and the chef is french.

Room Tip: We stayed at the 2n floor an our window showed to the backyard. This was really quiet. I´m not sure...
