Set in jungle clad hills, this modern, spacious apartment provides a tranquil retreat from the noisy night life and busy day life of Koh Tao.
This Apartment forms part of Koh Tao Star Villa - 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 less than 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.
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.
