We stayed at La Cigale for 4 nights,and could have easily have stayed for 20. Just the most perfect location, short walk to the beach and not much further to all the bars and restaraunts. The Villa's themselves are beautiful, little self contained wonders that you could spend all day in if need be. A great feature was that you... More

This place was perfect for us, we really couldn't of asked for anything more. The perfect nights sleep away from it all but then a quick walk down to the beach and your back in the middle of it, the bathroom was outdoor but not, with a mosquito covering. So it was real thailand without the nuisance. Its next to... More

We are a family of five and we spent 4 days on the island. La cigale is really the best place to stay on Koh Tao. The location is great you are next to the beach and to the center where you have all the bars, shops, restaurants, clubs... But you don't hear the noise from your villa. The villas... More

It is incredible huge for myself. The room is decorated as well and all the things look new.The resort... More

Stayed there in January 2014 in the Garden Villa. Simply put, the place is just amazing -- if you can afford it and want to stay near Sariee. See the photos I took on arrival as I was amazed by the place. Description: The Villa is actually divided into two parts. An outdoor part (with equipped kitchen, huge dining area,... More

We spent 3 weeks traveling around Thailand, and La Cigale was the highlight of our accommodations. We stayed in the Garden Villa, and I cannot recommend it more highly. The accommodations are unique, blended with nature, and a nice diversion from the cookie-cutter rooms found at major hotel chains. The location is tranquil, yet is only a short walk to... More

This is an absolutely amazing find! Nestled amongst the native foliage and breathtaking fruit trees, you will find stunning bungalows built in and around the nature... And when I say, 'around', I mean that upon entering a room you are likely to see a huge boulder protruding from the wall... Or some other piece of the outdoors coming in... Making... More
