I stayed in the Garden Villa with my girlfriend for 14 nights. The Garden Villa can best be described as good value for money with many nice amenities I would never think of myself. For instance, providing the Villa with a mobile phone helped me and my girlfriend numerous times. We took a diving certificate and sometimes these trips were subject to changes which could be sorted out through the mobile phone instead of having to show up at the divecenter (which was a 30 min. walk). We also called our divecenter to ask for which beach that was best suitable for snorkeling on the particular day. We also received a torch. The torch also helped us many times when we walked home after 7 PM. As a European I would naively expect the streets to be lit at night. However, this is not the case for a large part of the roads on Koh Tao. Walking at night is therefore connected to substantial risk without a torch. Great service that the owners provided us with this. However, the thing that really stood out was the level of service on all areas. We wanted to give a tip to the roomservice which on one day washed our dishes when we left early and didn't had time for it. So we put the tip on the bed. But when we came back the money was moved to our night table. We then talked to Luke and he said that the personnel was not allowed to take money unless it was given to them personally. To me such principles demonstrate extraordinary integrity.
Overall, we were always met with a big smile and felt very welcomed. The Villa were very clean and is placed with a nice view to a cluster of beautiful palm trees. I'm definitely coming back and also recommending it to friends and family. It is really nice to have found a place where it is so evident that everyone is working extremely hard to make your stay something great to remember! Eventually, the 24/7 availability of the owners is just way more than you could expect with any accommodation in this price range.
