“A perfect place to relax”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2014

My partner and I stayed for 9 nights to relax after spending three weeks travelling around the rest of Thailand.

The staff were extremely helpful before our arrival, providing advice about travel to the island and even booking our ferry, from which were met at the pier and taken in a taxi up the hill to the villa.

The villas are fantastic, really clean and the photographs do not do them justice. Unexpected extras included a hard drive filled with movies and a welcome basket of fruit. The included breakfast deal is great, you simply use the provided mobile phone to call the restaurant which prepares the food and it's delivered to the door. The selection includes salads and sandwiches, and you can opt to have your "breakfast" up to 6pm. The two villas are almost identical, but if you get any choice then take Aristo rather than Adoro - it's slightly further up the hill and gets much more sun in the afternoon.

We were diving from Sairee for most of our time on the island and were quite happy to make the 20-minute walk to/from the village, but anyone venturing further afield or of a less active disposition would probably want a scooter or taxi to get about, especially as the villas are on a steep hill. It's worth it though as the views are incredible.

We had a few minor problems whilst we were in the villa (hard drive stopped working, shower boiler turned intermittent, etc.) but the staff were absolutely wonderful about them and rectified them within about 15 minutes of us informing them.

Overall we had a great experience here and will definitely stay again if we come back to Koh Tao. Highly recommended, and many thanks to the staff: Ronen, Lynne and Tac.

We stayed here for the last 4 days of our 3 week thailand trip.. Villa was beautiful, modern and clean.. Great selection of films if you wanted a night in & convenient take away ordering service info provided... The phone they provide was very handy especially if you were in town and wanted to call a taxi back.. The walk is manageable but in the April heat we could usually only manage one way!
Lots of info was provided on the various trips we could take but as we were there for such a short time we mostly made use of the gorgeous pool at the villa.
Only small negative was the aircon not working on the last night but it's just one of those things and we would certainly return!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

We were very much looking forward to staying here but were a little disappointed.
The staff is very friendly and pick up / drop off was well arranged.
The villa we stayed in was called Adoro, very nice inside, comfortable, great facilities, big screen with hard disk loaded with movies, garden, hammock (which could be hung a little higher of the floor), nice lounge chairs at the pool which is nice with a little ledge and jacuzzi jets.
Breakfast was ok and delivered from a restaurant close by. You get a phone to call the staff or other restaurants, taxi, anything you need so that is handy. Within 10 minutes you can walk back to the beach / restaurants and shops, which is nice.
We were looking forward to a quiet place but as this villa is on a drive way shared with the other house there is quite some noise of coming and going. Later in the afternoon the sun is blocked by the high trees. This villa also has a large roof of the house in front, which partly blocks the view from the sundeck and pool, (this is much better at the other villa). In the evening and night you can hear the music from the beach / hotel areas below.
I think check out is a little too early, 10:30 which does not give you much time to enjoy the morning in the villa.
The villas are wonderful but the location with regards to sound could be better.

Thank you for reviewing our Villas, we are glad you state in your review that you liked:

“The staff is very friendly and pick up / drop off was well arranged. The villa we stayed in was called Adoro, very nice inside, comfortable, great facilities, big screen with hard disk loaded with movies, garden, hammock (which could be hung a little higher of the floor), nice lounge chairs at the pool which is nice with a little ledge and jacuzzi jets”

We understand that did not like that driveway is shared, it is only shared by four villas and this is unavoidable. (it is not busy main road)

We understand you would like to have more sunlight that the trees block the sun in the late afternoon, this is a comprise between sunlight, and the privacy & beauty of the place, this also changes during the year according to seasons.

At night Sairee beach comes alive with fireshows and music, some evenings the wind can carry the sound over the Sairee area, it depends on the direction of the wind.

Our check out time is 10:30 so we have 3 & 1/2 hours to thoroughly prepare the Villa for the new guests arriving at 2pm. When we have no new guests arriving we love to offer a late checkout.

Overall we are glad you thought the villa was wonderful, we of course are a little disappointed you gave us an average score because Koh Tao Heights Boutique Villas are one of the best properties that you find in Sairee for this price.

Koh Tao Heights

These villas for fantastic. Beautifully positioned and fitted out. The view over the infinity pool was to die for. The villa was extremely comfortable and every detail has been thought of. Lynne and Charlotte were ace hosts providing excellent back up support with local knowledge whenever needed. We all felt extremely well cared for before and during our stay at Koh Tao Heights. We were very sad at checkout time. The 5 of us agreed this was the best part of our 4 week holiday in Thailand. We most definitely recommend these villas to other families or couple. It's a treat!

The only downside was, with three kids, we needed to catch taxis to and from Saree beach and when visiting other bays on the island. One way to Saree beach was 300 baht so it wasn't cheap when you compare hiring a scooter for the whole day is only 200 baht. But this seemed to be the going rate on the island. The taxi drivers must be making a killing! The upside of the distance was that the villas are located away from all the noise and commotion in Saree Beach.

These are beautiful villas and we had an amazing time on Koh Tao.
