Welcome to The Plantation, Koh Tao, Thailand, a family run boutique, luxury hotel located on the picturesque west side of the island, where, nestled in amongst the lush green hills, coconut palm trees and gleaming white sand beaches, you can relax and unwind in the balmy climes of an unspoiled tropical paradise, lapped by the azure waters of the Gulf of Thailand.

Constructed in 2016, the owners worked together with architects to bring their design for modern, stylish accommodations just moments away from Sairee beach. Incorporating a number of ingenious construction techniques, to keep the villas and apartments cool and temperate under the blazing South East Asian Sun, The Plantation is an ideal spot for individuals, small groups and families to experience the laid back island culture of “Turtle Island’.

In addition to the ocean access, only 300 meters away, The Plantation is just 600 meters from the small but thriving town of Sairee, where you will discover a wealth of restaurants, bars and shops, along with supermarkets, pharmacies and everything else you need to make your stay complete – you can even book yourself a scuba diving trip, take a massage or perfect your downward dog at the town’s yoga centres.

As a family run business with a small and dedicated staff, the owners ensure a level of service and attention that is second to none, enabling you to get on with the business of enjoying yourself, within the magnificent and peaceful environment of one of the few remaining traditional coconut plantations on Koh Tao.


The Plantation Koh Tao offers three different types of accommodations, including two and three bedroom pool villas -- featuring five meter high ceilings and 3 meter high sliding glass doors -- alongside the large airy studio apartments (which do not have a pool). All are finished in a contemporary and elegant design, and with some of the most striking sunset sea views, overlooking the coconut plantation, on the island, they are guaranteed to make your stay cool, comfortable and utterly stylish .

  • "We loved every minute of our stay at Thip and Robert. The villa has an amazing view on KohTao bay, a great terrasse to relax with a lovely little swimming pool from where you can enjoy the sunset. It s a very confortable place (good big bed, nice bathroom) and very important for us, it has a super easy access... sairee village is 5 minutes walking and the beach at 200 meters, so you don't even need to rent a scooter. Thip and Robert, the owners are very sweet host and do their best to offer you a wonderfull time. My only regret is that we didn t stay long enought. I can only recommand the Plantation!"

  • "Most amazing Apartment we have stayed in so far with astonishing view! Robert and Thip are great and super friendly hosts. We got picked up from the pier on arrival and didn't have anything to organize. Keeping in touch via cellphone or just knocking next door would always get you a quick response and they took care of everything we were asking for. The apartment is completely new and the design of the whole house and furniture is just great. Build on the rocks of the hill you have a terrific view over the palmtrees and the sairee bay. 5 minute walk to the beach and about 10 minute walk to the main area of the town. If you rent a scooter for only 150 Baht per day its only one minute due to the great road on front of the house. Since the island is very small it will take you maximum 10 minutes with the scooter to get to any other of the main beaches on the island. Very quiet place at night and the kitchen is also great for cooking with a big fridge. In the Bathroom you actually have a high water pressure (which is not common anywhere in Thailand) so showering is great as well. The pricing may seem a little high for Thailand however, staying in such a great place its worth every baht. We will definitely come back to Koh Tao and spent another week in the Plantation Apartments. Thanks for such an amazing time :)
  • "The plantation villa has a spectacular view, is clean, comfortable, and convenient for the sairee beach downtown area.Robert was a great host, helping us to arrange taxis, get motorbikes, and offer insights to the best breakfast spots on th island! The best part about the villas for us is that while it is only a 7-10min walk from town it is up on the hill so you feel like you have a private oasis to escape to away from downtown. Robert checked in with us multiple times and made sure our stay was comfortable. Of the places we have seen in koh tao, for the price range, this is a phenomenal option, and staying in a gorgeous villa is sure to make your trip memorable. All amenities (wifi, bathroom etc) are in great condition."
  • "Es war eine wunderschöne Zeit in einer tollen Villa! Der Ausblick aus dem Pool ist mehr als Traumhaft! Die Beschreibung der Unterkunft passt komplett und uns wurde bei allem sehr schnell geholfen! Wir sind komplett zufrieden und können die Unterkunft und Vermieter zu 100% weiterempfehlen!"
  • "We had a lovely stay here. Easy check in, picked up from the pier and help was available whenever we needed it. The room was beautiful and clean and the view was absolutely stunning, especially for sunset. Highly recommend. We found it quite easy to walk to where the restaurants and shops were, although if we stayed longer we may have hired a bike."
  • "Everything went smooth. They picked us up from the accommodation we stayed before and we even could check in right away, although it was only 10 am. The room was clean and there is a spacious outside area which is very nice to watch the sunset. Robert is a very helpful and friendly person. The room was cleaned everyday, while we were somewhere exploring. The accommodation is close ( you could walk ) to all the bars and restaurants, but still it is a quiet and nice spot."
  • Robert was amazing and tried his very best to make us feel comfortable, always. The location is very close to sairee beach."
  • "J'ai séjourné dans la villa avec deux amis, un logement haut de gamme, nous n'avons pas du tout été déçu! Prês des commerces et de la vie de l'île, c'est aussi un endroit très tranquille! Nous recommandons fortement ce logement de toute beauté. Merci encore à notre hôte!"
  • "Everything was perfect! room is fully equipped with everything necessary. fast wi-fi. View from the balcony is magnificent. Robert is very hospitable host. All our questions quickly found a solution."
  • "Now this was simply a perfect stay! Wonderful view! Stunning place! Very modern and stylish furniture! Robert you created a absolut stunning venue! We simply loved it! It was everything as described! We will definitely come back in future time!"
  • "Nous avons passé 10 jours dans ce paradis, on remercie énormément les propriétaires pour leur gentillesses, la villa est très bien la vue, la literie....très proche de la plage. Avec un service aux petits soin. Quand nous reviendrons sur koh tao nous reviendrons chez Robert"
  • Favorite hotel in thailand! The Plantation was way more awesome than expected. Rooms were super clean and comfortable Robert is a superb host. Beach is just 2 minutes to walk. Always there to help you when needed! 10/10 will go back!
  • This place was fantastic - we stayed in the pool villa and it was really spacious, clean and convenient. It had amazing sunset views of the bay and it's very close to the beach - around five minutes walk away. The town is only ten minutes walk away which is great because it's close but also out of the way enough to be peaceful and quiet. The beds are huge and extremely comfortable too. Robert and Thip are such kind and considerate hosts - they really go out of their way to help you. Also, the free taxi pickup from the pier was a nice touch. Thanks for such a great stay, we'll be booking with you again in the future!
  • The best in Koh Tao...a wonderful place to stay. Apartment is of the highest standard possible. Robert and Thip are wonderful hosts who are available to help you whenever you need them. It was a pleasure to stay here and if I visit Koh Tao in the future, I will be returning to The Plantation. Congratulations to you both on a wonderful establishment.
