Walking into our apartment at La Cigale we could tell immediately why this place was so highly rated. The place was spotless with a big beautiful kitchen and a large balcony that overlooked Sairee beach. The staff along with Andre the owner went above and beyond to ensure that every need was met including helping us arrange a boat tour... More

When I think of luxury hotels, I imagine places that look like la Cigale, but I never imagined I could afford to stay in them. Not only was our Garden Villa huge and comfortable, it was affordable and in a great location: a 15 minute walk from Sairee Beach lowers the noise and doesn't require a taxi. Here's the kicker:...

We stayed in the Rock Villa at La Cigale for 8 days. It felt like home! We loved the small extras, like complimentary mini bar items and fresh coffee grounds that were replenished daily, a local cell phone, and the well-equipped kitchen. Andre was a great host--he was as available as we needed him to be, but also gave us... More

We really appreciated the blend of beauty simplicity and attention at La Cigale. For us the location was perfect-a short walk from the top end of Sairee beach, so we could be in the middle of the action, but still retreat to the peace and quiet of our room when we wished. The complimentary minibar (a few sodas, etc.) was... More

We stayed 3 nights in the bungalow. We arrived way too early but they had our room ready and they let us check in early at no extra cost. Andre showed us to our room and upon entering the view took my breath away. It was absolutely gorgeous! The bathroom was awesome and we really enjoyed how they allowed the... More

After a terrible stay at Charm Churee Bamboo Huts, my partner and I arrived at La Cigale, warmly welcomed with a freshly cracked coconut, by Nan and Andres. We had a look around and immediately booked 2 extra nights at the twin villa. The lovely caretakers have thought of everything! From the freshly ground coffee, the mozzie coils were already... More

This was my third time at La Cigale. As always, our stay was excellent. Andre has put a lot of love into building and maintaining the villas and making his guests feel welcome. We stayed at Twin Villa, which is my favorite. With an open-air kitchen / living room layout, great night views of Sairee Beach from the hammock and... More

Beautiful b&b situated on a hill in the forest and very close to Sairee beach. Incredible location with an amazing view. Our bungalow was decorated in a tasteful way. Especially the bathroom, who had a jungle-like theme. It felt like taking a shower in the rainforest. The staff was very friendly. They provided breakfast in our room at a very... More

Incredible little place tucked away up in the jungle canopies. So enchanting and individual it stood out as the highlight of our trip. Only a five minute stroll down to a stunning cove at the end of Sairee beach it was the perfect place to relax and unwind. At night your only a ten/fifteen minute walk along the beach some... More

La Cigale resort is one of the most beautiful places I've ever stayed! It like having your own home in paradise! So cozy yet high end. We even had our own private garden/ yard. It comes with a full kitchen and espresso bar which was awesome after having already been in thailand for one month. I didn't want to leave... More
