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

Stayed there almost a week and god I love this place. It a bit far from the central but not a problem at all. I stayed alone in a huge place with outdoor toilet and kitchen in front and 2 balconies. 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

Single Traveller, 3 nights. I stayed here for a few nights in December after reading some positive reviews, and am I glad I did. After a somewhat choppy crossing frm Chumpon, I was collected Lompraaha pier by a lovely driver who took me in pick up to La Cigale. What strikes you first is the location of the resort, quite...

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

I just spent 4 nights in the family bungalow at La Cigale with my girlfriend. Returning for my second stay 3 years after my first stay in 2010. I was equally happy with stay the 2nd time round. I would certainly recommend it for a super relaxing & comfortable stay on Koh Tao. The place is nicely furnished, kept super... More

I have to say the pictures on some booking websites really underrate this great place. I stayed in garden villa for two nights. The first sight of the villa really shocked me. The total area might be more than 200 square meters. A comfortable bedroom, a spacious bathroom, an open-air kitchen, and a two-story balcony. Being in the villa brings... More

We stayed at La Cigale for about a week. The Family Villa was wonderful with a spacious room, an open kitchen/terrace area build literally into the hillside, a 'jungle bathroom' (also built right onto the rock wall), and everything one needs to relax, including an exterior sofa-corner protected by a mosquito net and a hammock. It's hard to do justice... More

We had a great stay at the bungalow: quiet and romantic place at Koh Tao, great views and warm welcome. The walk up to the cribs is quite steep, but well worth it and of course can always rent a scooter. We liked the walk on the beach to the restaurants and got some good advices from Andre for places... More
