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

We stayed at the Garden Villa for 4 days for New Year eve, and had a great time. The villa is spacious and charming in the middle of beautiful plants and trees. The photos on the site do not do justice to the settings. It was so nice that we actually ended up spending more time there than we usually... More

We stayed in the Garden Villa and loved every minute of it. Beautiful open air kitchen, living and dining area that really immersed you in the peace and solitude of the jungle. It was very private, but not isolated. The staff would arrive within a few minutes when we called Andre with any need. A short walk down a path... More

Awesome rooms with view, super private Andre & co run a tight show, with the best staff and location... The rooms built around the natural rocks and hills are superb and can be an amazing relaxing area to chill out if your visit to koh tao is not a rushed one!

Andre the owner is a lovely person, and much of the good of La Cigale can be attributed to his touch and personality. This little getaway is clearly a labor of love in the hills. We stayed in the garden villa, which has a huge terrace amongst the trees. It's a nicely-built spot, with a cool bathroom that's half-indoors and... More

This was our last stop before heading back to Bangkok, and it couldn't have been better. The rooms (really, they're apartments) are huge. Great seating areas outside, comfortable beds, everything was just perfect. It is close to everything, though we did rent a scooter (from the owner) for our 3 days there so we could explore all the other parts... More

Andre, the owner of La Cigale, doesn't need another five star review, but the place is nothing short of fantastic. La Cigale includes four separate bungalows located on the side of a hill overlooking Sairee beach, the main drag of Ko Tao where most of the restaurants, bars, and dive shops are located. The view is terrific. Each bungalow has... More

We stayed 6 nights and wished we had longer. La Cigale is 4 unique bungalows built into the leafy hillside looking down over Sairee Beach. It is only a couple of minutes walk to the beach and about 10 minutes into town but it is a quiet and peaceful retreat away from the hustle and bustle. Koh Tao is all... More
