“A fantastic place!”
Reviewed 29 January 2014

We were two families and stayed at the Chum Poo villa for 6 nights. We had originally booked 3 nights but ended up returning there for the remaining part of our holiday because we liked it that much. The hotel is located at the end of Sairee Beach, nice and quiet corner with clear blue waters and palm trees and pretty much looks like a postcard and you can go snorkelling right off the beach (you can rent a mask, tube and fins at the guest center) They have very nice sunbeds but you might want to get there early to get a place.The restaurant located on the rocks overlooking the ocean offers one of the most beautiful views, breakfast was very nice and also other food was tasty and quite reasonably priced. Just a short walk down the beach are many restaurants and bars and the town with shops and more restaurants and bars is also about 10 minute walk. We had booked the Chum Poo villa, that is beautiful and very nice if you are travelling with a small group as it has a nice living room and huge terrace overlooking the beach and ocean, providing a nice common space for evenings. The staff was wonderful and very helpful. When we go back to Koh Tao, we will definitely stay at the Koh Tao Cabana again.

What an amazing place. Situated on the beaches of Koh Toa and therefore you have easy access to bars, restaurants and snorkelling. We stayed in a beautiful round villa with balcony, with stunning decor inside. I often found it difficult to communicate with the staff but who cares when you have a gorgeous view overlooking the ocean for breakfast.

Well what can I say.. This place was just wonderful - from the moment we arrived we received top quality treatment. Immediately after we arrived we where handed iced tea and cold towels to soothe our dry weary tonsils and sweaty faces. Then moving onto the room we where just blown away with how lovely the room and view was from our Bungalow. The free voucher for the spa was a really lovely addition to the room - which we both enjoyed greatly. The best things about this place where the location (right at the top of Sarin Beach) Close to most things you may need - bars, food and shopping. The Restaurant is really nice too, the food is great and the service was always with a smile. The showers in the room always had hot water and reasonable pressure. The pool - Was just beautiful... Nice and clean and even though the place is only a few steps to the beach the pool was definitely another high light.. All in all we both loved our stay here and will return.. Thank you to everyone at Cabana!

Room Tip: The Villas are the best - Particlarly the Honeymoon suites.. (they have their own pools and are very...

There have read mixed reviews about this hotel but in our experience it was an absolute gem! The hotel has the best location on Koh Toa as you are on the main beach, but not right next door to the beach parties. The setting is magical, fairy lights bring the trees and pathways to life at night. The food and service is great and best of all the rooms are very well priced. The snorkeling along the coastline of the hotel was excellent. We will definitely go back to the Cabana and next time we will stay for longer than 1 week!

Room Tip: To get the best rooms/villas you need to book well in advance! This hotel has many regular visitors...

We (a youngish(late 20's) couple) stayed at koh tao cabana for four nights in november and it was amazing, we had paid a bit extra to get the private pool called the honeymoon villa and it really was worth it. the huts were great, had everything you needed as mentioned in other reviews ie. bug spray/toiletries etc and the minibar was very well priced - pretty much the same as the shops! the outdoor bathroom was great, maybe not for everyone but you can see before you book the type of bathrooms they have. We absolutely loved the villa hut it had a fantastic view over the beach and we could relax in our private pool every day! We ate at the restaurant several times and the food and drinks were always good as was the service. The hotel reception were very hepful. We used the sunloungers, and the main swimming pool and the snorkelling equipment. This hotel is by far the nicest on koh tao and worth paying a bit extra for a bit of luxury. The hotel is at the end of the beach so pretty private too, but not far to walk to any other bars/restaurants etc. i would absolutely recommend koh tao cabana, and would also recommend koh tao generally although just a tip - the only way to get there is by a ferry which can be quite rocky if the sea is rough so maybe take some sea sickness tablets just incase.

I tried to contact the Resort for booking a cottage for me, my boyfriend and my little daughter (who is under 2 years old) but at the end I couldn't. They didn't answer in the first 48 hours (as they say on the booking's format) but after 5 days, even if we pointed we were urgently waiting for a feedback. At the end they offered a Villa instead of a Cottage using the excuse of the child policy, even if in Agoda, for the same Cottage we wanted, was not mention any restriction.
No apologies from the staff, which didn't even try to find an alternative solution for us.

I am sure is a beautiful place to stay, but this is not the way to treat with (potential) customers.

I've only checked in today for 2 nights and I'm already regretting it. Because its amazing!! It's honestly so lovely, if you can afford whatever price you've found for this resort just book. I've been to koh tao before and stayed some place else on this visit - as we'll as having a keen look around at other hotels. And I would say this is the best hotel koh tao has to offer. It's at the north end of the main beach which is where you'll want to be staying. You can walk easily to all the bars and eating places yet still be private when you're at the resort as only guests are really on this part of the beach. The swimming pool area is lovely with a waterfall. My husband and I taught ourselves to snorkel in it today! Renting equipment is really cheap (£1.20 for mask and snorkel). The cabana (beach hut we're living in) is amazing with lots of thoughtful details (bug spray, matches, candles, revolving tv, hammock, water to clean the sand off your feet before you enter)!! And the outside bathroom is really fun with a rain shower and lovely smelling toiletries. The mini bar is really reasonably priced - half the price of the last place we stayed up the road. And cocktails are about £3 and yummy. It's the best place we've stayed during our 3 months in SEA and if we hadn't found a rare great deal probably the most expensive. I think the standard cabana (really lovely) is about £54. And if this price is fine for you just book because unless you're super fussy you will really love it here.
