Visited Koh Tao in September 2013, stayed at Star Villa for 6 days. Great location set well back from the noise of the beach and strip. Beautiful views from the terrace, my wife and I watched the sunset most evenings whilst enjoying a cold beer. Alan and Heidi are very helpful and know pretty much everything worth knowing about Koh... More

I'll keep this review short and sweet, this place is awesome. The accommodation is great, the surrounding views are great, the owners Alan and Heidi are great, I think you're getting the picture here. The place is simply beautiful, Alan and Heidi met us when we arrived and helped with our bags and taxi travel back to Star Villa where... More

Alan夫妇非常不错,Star Villa 的环境也非常独特,漂亮的海景/山景房,房间很大也很干净,过去没有过类似的经历。 整体感觉很温馨。 每天坐Alan的皮卡或摩托,或自驾租来的大摩托上下山,感觉非常刺激。 山下就有一个很不错的潜水学校Roctopus。 下次去涛岛还会找Alan。 The staffs are really nice people. Rooms are clean and spacious. The apartments are on the mountain, beautiful views of the sea, very quite. It takes about 15 minutes down to the town, but it takes a bit of work out if you want to climb up. They offer you two free round... More

Star Villa which is owned and managed by Alan and Heidi provides an ideal view of the island along with comfort, service, play room, and clean water. Don't take clean water lightly on Koh Tao. It is one of the most problematic issues for the island. Alan and Heidi were super friendly, informative, helpful, very polite and genuine. The apartments... More

We stayed at Koh Tao Star Villa for 4 nights during our trip through south east asia. Alan and Heidi are extremly friendly guestkeepers. Alan has asked every day if we are ok and if we need anything. We also appreciated his advise on beaches and tourist activities on the island. It was definitely more personal than a stay in... More

I stayed at Star Villa in December 2013 with my parents. We had the 2 apartments which was fantastic as they were ajoining and shared a HUGE balcony!

They have got very promising reviews here in Tripadvisor and I was looking for some really nice hotel as I have tried some others on my previous trip and was not good experience at all.

Thank you for taking the time to review to Star Villa. We are very sorry that your stay was not everything you were expecting it to be. We are also very confused, as our website makes it very clear that we are not a ‘normal’ resort. Indeed you also say you were using Tripadvisor to assess our accommodation, but if... More

We arrived by ferry and we warmly greeted by Alan and Hidi who had a taxi waiting to take us to the villa. Its quite an experience going up the first time and for that matter every time as the terrain is quite steep and you feel like the car might start doing back flips at any second haha good... More

Very nice, quiet and lovely place, far from Sairee noise and party life with wonderful view to Koh Tao and the sea. Alan and Heidi are very friendly, nice people, who have answers to all. Very clean house, no bad surprises. Perfect place for rest, granting a feeling of satisfaction and happiness. We were very happy to stay some days... More
