Sensi Paradise Beach Resort, Koh Tao: A True Tropical Paradise

Sensi Paradise Beach Resort, Koh Tao: A True Tropical Paradise

Sensi Paradise in Koh Tao, Thailand is exactly that, a true tropical paradise. Imagine cute and comfortable bungalows nestled amongst the jungle, surrounded by wildlife or overlooking the beautiful beach. When I think of the perfect tropical destination, this is it. 

The ease and comfort of the whole resort encourages you to slow down, switch off and enjoy every moment. Here you are guided by your surroundings to reconnect back to nature and immerse yourself in all the resort has to offer.

Sensi Paradise Beach Resort really does have everything you need, from a private soft sandy beach, a beautiful pool, incredible food and a wide variety of drinks, wonderful gardens filled with life and an incredible shipwreck just offshore to snorkel and explore. 

After spending 5 nights at this extraordinary resort on Koh Tao I cannot recommend it enough!

Sensi’s Paradise Vibe

The vibe of any accommodation is so important and you can feel it from the moment you arrive at Sensi. With its open-air wooden buildings and walkways winding through the jungle, the vibe is natural and rustic with a hint of luxury, and the amenities support this throughout.

The Beach

This is by far my favourite part of Sensi Paradise. Located at the end of Mae Haad Beach the section by the hotel is private so there are never too many people and you don’t feel overcrowded! There is lots to discover here too, there’s plenty of fish to see just offshore and a shipwreck just round to the left in Jansom Bay – be sure to grab your towel and spend the day here relaxing on the sand, exploring the ocean or the rocks around. The beachfront restaurant staff are also on hand if you want a coconut or any other drinks.

The Pool

This two-tiered pool is perfect for couples or the whole family. These two tiers are not just for show, one side features a shallower kid’s pool while the other is deeper and aimed at adults. There are plenty of beds surrounding the space so you can always find somewhere to sit for the day and relax.

The Gardens

The walk from reception to your bungalow is down a beautiful jungle path, the grounds throughout Sensi Paradise are natural and full of wildlife. Secluded at the end of a lane and Mae Haad beach it feels like a real unspoilt paradise and hidden gem. When you visit make some time to have a wander around, you can find everything from swaying palms to banana trees, geckos and some incredible birds such as the Oriental Dollarbird.

Beachfront Restaurant 

The beachfront restaurant is the perfect place to admire the incredible views for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The wooden decking stretches over the ocean allowing you to observe the underwater world below, it is also the perfect place to admire the sunset and gaze over the harbour as the lights of the boats come on and start to twinkle in the darkness of the night. Sensi Paradise’s restaurant boasts an extensive menu of Thai and international dishes, there is something for everyone and once a week they have a seafood BBQ!

Final Thoughts 

Overall I cannot recommend Sensi Paradise Beach Resort enough, it is by far my favourite accommodation throughout Thailand. 

I love it for a variety of reasons but overall it is the way you feel so isolated from the rest of the island allowing you to completely relax and reset whilst travelling around. Yet you are so close to town and everything you need. Its location within the jungle and private beach is very special, you can truly immerse yourself in every moment here and reconnect to the nature around and within.

If you are looking for some rustic luxury throughout your travels, and enjoy being by the beach and slowing down a bit then you will love Sensi Paradise Beach Resort.
