Location is stunning. The sunrise in the morning is amazing.....its just the upkeep and management of the hotel desperately needs to improve. If you're trying to offer luxury then service and details really matter!!!

8/10 Very good

The staff and my room were perfect. The whole place is a building site. Everywhere you look halfway completed building and facilities falling apart. Stairway everywhere with no lighting. The morning breakfast in the morning is disgusting.

A potential jewel in the golf of Thailand
Lovely situation, good snorkeling, easy access to the sea, staff very friendly and helpful, breakfast OK, limited restaurant menu, many items fried in batter, good selection of well priced cocktails, very comfortable king beds in Delux Beach Front rooms. Resort suffering like most because of the affects of Covid on reduced occupancy for a long period, therefore tired looking. Resort not for anyone with poor mobility as there are lots of steps commensurate with the beauty and ruggedness of the location.

A nice resort if - big if - you have some sort of transportation. Otherwise, far from shops, bars, restaurants. Nice people at the reception, very helpful.

A beautiful resort in close proximity to the sea.
Completely stunning located at a peninsula built in with true respect for the nature and the old exotic threes and flowers. Excellent maintained with top notch service. Great food and service in the restaurant close to the sea. Great value for money and highly recommended. A definite return rate for any guests who are here for the first stay. A tranquil place with the complete capacity for recharging your mind and you are guaranteed checking out with a cleaned mind. One of the worlds greatest places for humans to clean their minds. A go go place.

Can I give it an 11?
If you love snorkeling, you MUST stay here. Sai Daeng occupies a peninsula that has what may be the best reefs in Koh Tao. This is where the dive and snorkeling boats come, but YOU can stay here. The rooms are comfortable and the views are amazing. The included breakfast is excellent. After breakfast, just head for the water (on either side of the peninsula) and enjoy the fish, turtles, rays, coral, and all sorts of interesting sea creatures. The water on the north side was always clear, the water on the south side can get a little cloudy when the wind comes up. This beats "off the beach" snorkeling I've done anywhere else in Thailand, Hawaii, Florida, Bali, etc. So much easier not to have to take a boat somewhere. The food at the resort is excellent, but it's Thai food (which I love, but I'm just saying....). The staff is friendly and helpful. The place is remote from the town. If you're not on a motorbike you will be dependent on the shuttle and taxis. I found no need to leave the resort at all during the 8 days I spent there (I extended twice, I couldn't leave). This was certainly the best snorkeling experience of my life. If you love to snorkel, whatever you need to do, spend a week at Sai Daeng. You won't be sorry. One warning. The peninsula is on a hill. You WILL need to be climbing steps. If you have problems walking, you'll have to skip this. I'm 74. It wasn't a problem for me, just good exercise. But it might be difficult for some.
