Four of us stayed at La Cigale in February 2011 and couldn't have been happier. Andre is a fabulous host and made us feel right at home. The grounds were incredible - exotic plants, hundreds of butterflies, a few of the sea - everything was perfect. My favorite moments were swinging in the hammock listening to the cicadas while sipping on a glass of wine.
Two of us stayed in the bungalow nearest Andre's house and as soon as we opened the door I knew it was special. I can still remember the intoxicating lemongrass scent of the room. All the details were taken care of. The outdoor bathroom was special and charming. Took a minute to get used to but after a while you get used to the lizards and critters keeping you company.
The other two stayed in the larger middle unit and we used the living space there as a common area for the four of us. We really did have everything we needed for a perfect stay on Koh Tao. We borrowed the scooters which were a little scary but fun, and Andre has a friend who drives a taxi and is always available to come pick you up. The beach was only a short distance away, as were several cute beach-front bars.
I would absolutely come back to stay at La Cigale, and hope you will all experience the relaxation we did. Took home some terrific memories. Thank you Andre!
