From the moment I saw this accommodation I thought “Wow, this looks great, lets book three nights as part of our tour of the Gulf Islands in July” - and I did. So after nine nights on Samui and Phangnan it was off to Koh Tao for our little slice of jungle living. Fresh off the ferry we waited for... More

We booked and paid for a week at La Cigale thinking the location would be suitable as was it was away from the noisy downtown area. However, the steep hill walk up to the property from the beach, shops and restaurants always leaves you in a lather of sweat with no pool on property to cool off. The lack of... More

We stayed here as part of our honeymoon for 3 nights in the twin villa, the accommodation was brilliant, clean and everything you could have needed was there. As all the other reviews mention Andre and his staff are fantastic we received a mobile with contacts of taxi services and staff numbers in case we needed them, they go above... More

Koh Tao is a beautiful place, and this little gem simply added to it. The owner, Andre, is a hero of our times and will stop at nothing to ensure your stay is memorable. It's off the beaten track, but close enough to the beach and the vibrant Sairee Beach nightlife. Simply can't recommend enough. We were picked up and... More

We spent our honeymoon in October of 2014 at La Cigale. I truly don't know where to begin so I guess I'll start here. I work for the world's largest hotel chain and have spent my career creating incredible experiences for customers. This is my most memorable lodging experience the world over. Andre was a breath of fresh air after... More

Beautiful villa perfectly situated near to sairee beach, but far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the village. Andre and his staff are brilliantly friendly - nothing is too much for them. Greeted by fresh coconut was the best way to arrive after a 24 hour journey. Food and drink readily available and bought to your villa in... More

Wow! Words can't quite catch the uniqueness of this place. What makes this pace unique is not just its location above Sairee beach in a lush avocado and coconut farm. It's not just its architecture that incorporate the topography of the hillside. It's it also it's owner Andre and his uniquely friendly and clever staff. I assure you will have... More

I stayed in Baan Suan. It's the first one you see when you come up the road before the la Cigale sign. It is on 2 levels, with an entertaining deck below and everything else up top. Rain shower, kitchen, dining and sala are outside under a roof, with only the bedroom enclosed and air conditioned. A lot of complimentary... More

Arrived unexpectedly in koh tao, late at night one night earlier than I had booked for and instead of making arrangements with large cigale, simply slept at a nearby diving resort. I was so incredibly thankful I'd be spending the rest of my time in la cigale's twin villa instead. I had a taxi organised to pick me up, as... More
