Villa overview - owner's description

Koh Tao Star Villa is a recently completed modern villa set in tranquil, jungle clad hills above Sairee Beach. This superb location gives you the best of both worlds - peace and isolation (perfect for a romantic break) and easy access to Koh Taos tourist hot spot - Sairee Beach - where there is a huge variety of bars, restaurants and clubs to suit all tastes. On a scooter or ATV, it takes less than 5 minutes to reach the beach, or a leisurely stroll takes about 20 mins.

Famous for its SCUBA diving, Koh Tao now boasts a range of other activities for the young at heart. From rock climbing or free diving to ten-pin bowling and mini golf, there is something to fill every minute of your day if you want to, or should rather just relax, there are many tranquil bays and beaches to enjoy.

The Ambience
Set in just under an acre of grounds, the surrounding jungle is dotted with banana, mango, papaya and coconut trees where there is also ample opportunity for a jungle trek to see some of Koh Tao that many visitors dont get to see. Then from the vantage point provided by your terrace (about 80m above sea level), you can witness the almost daily spectacle of the sea eagles cavorting in the skies above Star Villa and watch the sun settle down behind the mountains on the mainland some 70km distant. Then enjoy balmy evenings playing pool or a board game and listen to the daytime sounds of the tropical jungle become even more evocative at night. Turn off the lights, lie back and watch the splendour of the universe wheel across the night sky - on a good night, when the moon is new, you can see shooting stars and even the odd satellite pass over. If you would rather be inside, what about a quiet night in, in front of the T.V. or just listen to the many choices of music supplied over the T.V./satellite

Behind KTSV is a Buddhist temple, preserved as a retreat for monks on strict sabbatical from around Thailand and Myanmar. It is even possible to climb the rock behind the Villa (from the temple side) to see a fantastic 360 degree panorama of the island.

The Facilities
Whatever your required activity level is, Koh Tao Star Villa provides you with some of the best accommodation the island has to offer. The upper floor is a huge penthouse apartment with two bedrooms and two bathrooms whilst the level below is made up of two self-contained one bebroom apartments with en-suite bathrooms and spacious living rooms.

Cindy

From Lexington, Ma

We stayed 5 nights in this modern 1 br apt . The linens are fresh, the mattress firm, and the towels, ah, the towels. Deep and rich very luxurious. (I know that sounds corny, but the last nice place we stayed in had thin, worn, ragged towels). We bought food downtown to make our own breakfast, but the last two days, we opted for Heidi to make and deliver our breakfast. The french toast was delicious. Theres plenty of room in the apartment. Theres a sound system and tv. Theres a game room on the lower level with a pool table and dartboard. The views are breathtaking. The hosts are very accommodating about rides to and from town they go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. They give you a phone to use, making it very convenient to call them for a ride. Spent the days snorkeling. No diving. I felt like I was in a giant fish tank. Koh Tao had a lot of young people and backpackers and we were happy to be a bit removed from all the hubbub in town. Star Villa provided us the privacy we needed and we were very, very pleased with our decision to stay here. I would highly recommend Star Villa.
On a side note, I wrote this review prior to husband, and found out later that he wrote a note to the owners as follows: Looks like my wife beat me to the tripadvisor review so I wanted to extend a special thanks for going back for those water bottles. After loosing and breaking a couple of them, those particular ones have traveled a lot of miles with me and were just about to complete this journey. (Yeah, maybe its a bit quirky). I am grateful to you, once again, for the extra effort to keep your guests happy and satisfied. That attitude really shows up for you both, as well as the strong impression that you are having a lot of fun. You picked us up together, dro pped us off together and even did that run for the bottles togetherall with smiles! Very very nice.
