We planned to stay in luxurious places in Koh Tao for the 1st three nights but I was really dissappointed with Thipwimarn. We spent 4000 baht the equivalent to £80 and I don't feel that it was worth it. We stayed in the superior room and it was really small. If you struggle getting up and down stairs then beware as the steps are steep and there's plenty of them. We only stayed for one night but a couple we met booked to stay for over a week. They wanted to leave after a couple of days and the hotel said they would charge them a fee even though the hotel wasn't busy!? Another couple there were on their honeymoon and thoroughly dissappointed too. There are still works going on next to the hotel so you can hear drills and it's really noisy by the pool.
The beach that the hotel has is tiny and not worth the walk down the many steps. When we got down there we thought it was round the corner, there was nothing there and we walked up the stairs of the neighbouring resort that's being built. I WAS THEN BITTEN BY A DOG!!! So off to the doctors, rabies jabs and I wasn't even allowed to go in the water after it was dressed. When the hotel is busy the food is ok but when it's quiet there is a limited option of choice.
My advice is look elsewhere if you want luxury and value for money ....
