Seaview Resort and Restaurant Koh Tao Reviews
Picturesque resort with amazing view! Sep 27, 2011
Set on the side of a hill-top, the family run Seaview Resort was a great choice of accommodation for my first trip to Koh Tao.
It is quite far from the main town (about 5-10minutes ride on a motorbike or taxi, or 30minute walk), yet within a 10minute walking distance to the stunning Ao Leuk Beach. We hired motorbikes for the duration of our trip - which the resort organised and bargained for us - which made things much easier. Upon arrival we were also picked up by the resorts private taxi - for free - and they take you back to the ferry upon departure! They have a daily shuttle down to the ferry/town at 8am each morning, and again in the afternoon, yet if you request a special time it will cost between 100 and 200baht depending on the time.
The kitchen produces both wonderful homemade Thai dishes as well as western meals - we ate here every day as it was cheap and so yummy - and they are open from 7am until 10.30pm every day. In the open-styled restaurant and bar area of the resort, there is also a TV with satellite, a DVD player and free WIFI. The atmosphere is very relaxed, and they have low tables with cushions so you can lounge and soak up the spectacular view.
The staff are very friendly, which gives the resort a real family atmosphere. They did everything possible to accommodate our needs and requests, and always did so with a smile on their face.
The room I stayed in was middle of the range, with cable TV, and a fan. Bathroom was semi-open to the outside world (there was a screen door from the bedroom which could be locked) and included a non-flushing toilet - had to use buckets of water to flush - and a cold shower! Rooms were very nicely furnished, beds had a mosquito net, and a private balcony facing the view. Do not be afraid of the bumps and noises in the night - its just the squirrels running across the roof, and the gecko's falling from the ceiling!
We stayed over the Christmas and New Year period, and the resort had their own Christmas dinner special and NYE Party, both of which we attended - a BBQ/Roast/Buffet dinner and cheap drinks all night. We also had a secret santa type of thing on Christmas night, in which everyone (guests and staff) picked a number off the Christmas tree, which corresponded to a present. A great way to get every one socializing.
You will need to book in advance if coming to Koh Tao during the busy/high season, although you may be lucky and be able to get a single night if you just turn up without a booking. I personally would not take the risk.
If I ever return to Koh Tao, I will definitely be staying here again!
