A group of 4 of us stayed for 2 nights beginning of November. Although we had spats of rain this didn't ruin our experience. Heidi and Alan picked is up from our boat (free of charge) and took is back to the apartment. The pair of them were very friendly and had great knowledge of the area. The view from... More

We found the Koh Tao Star Villa after having a last minute scramble for accommodation deciding the hotel we had pre booked was not up to our standards! It was quite late when we booked but from the minute we arrived we new we had made the right decision. Alan sent a cab to pick us up from our previous... More

I loved staying here, it was a beautiful location. Everytime I walked out onto the balcony I was blown away by the view, and there were so many little tracks you could walk around and a lovely temple above the hotel. You could go up there and watch the sun go down. It was the perfect 'tropical paradise'. Alan and... More

This hotel could feel like a five start resort if the owner trusted the visitors. I understand both sides to the coin here but having travelled through Thailand using the number one Tripadvisor recommendations, this was the only one that fell short. The scenery, location and accommodations do not have a downside. The fact that Heidi and Alan drive you... More

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
