Koh Tao Star Villa
Ranked #3 of 148 Specialty Lodging in Koh Tao
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 1, 2014

I stayed at Koh Tao Star Villa over Christmas 2013 along with a group of friends on a reunion trip. We were hosted very graciously by the owners - Heidi & Alan, who are very cool and always willing to help. The villa itself is fantastic and very well maintained (we lived in the penthouse) and view is simply breathtaking. The deck is a great place to just sit back and relax and play some music / movies / read a book (from the in-penthouse library) and enjoy the sunset. Alan and Heidi also provide a free pick up and drop off service from the villa to the main Sairee beach (which is otherwise a 20 min walk) till about 10:30pm. The only small issue is if you're coming back AFTER this time in which case you can either take a late night taxi (which could be pretty expensive) or walk up (the walk uphill is quite tiring after a long day of diving / activities). But this is just one small bump in what is otherwise an absolute gem of a place. Highly recommend :).

Room Tip: If you're travelling in a big group or a family, be sure to signup for the penthouse apartment...

We stayed in Koh Tao Star Villa in december 2013 and were there for Xmas. The positive reviews lived up to our expectations! We had a really good time and the hosts Heidi and Alan run the villa with their hearts...and together with several lovely animals from 'the hood'. The villa is luxurious and beautiful, a real nice place to relax and it has a great view. The hosts give you good advice where to go and where to eat. And they drive you up and down the hill in their fourwheel drive, a really cool ride! If you plan to go to Koh Tao, go to the Star Villa!

We travelled as a family of 4 with two teenage daughters. The jewel of Koh Toa welcomed us with amazing hospitality from Heidi and Allan. The penthouse was superbly finished with all the amenities one could wish for. Our hosts ensured we went to the best hidden gems on the island and arranged or fetched us when ever we required their assistance.

We can not recommend Star Villa highly enough as it provides everything that you'd wish for on a relaxing holiday including superb views and facilities. We can't wait to go back.

Have stayed at star villa before. We had such a great time and service before,we thought we would go back. It was sooooo nice to see it was just how we remembered it..stunning!! little bit of luxury in the middle of the jungle! and still with such great standards and the very friendly,helpful staff/owners,who care so much about the island. Nothing is ever too much trouble for them (heidi and alan), They realy made us feel like part of the family and at home. The little extras provided always adds to the stay,free taxis twice a day are great, provided us with the mobile phones to call them with. Beach towels are also provided on request.Great take away book is provided,we sampled lots of local resaurants and all very tasty. The games room provided us with lots of entertainment to pass the time while we waited for the rain to pass and relaxed. We also like to use the sun loungers on the balcony,the view never gets boreing. There are steps up to the villa,but there we re also many lovely things we have seen while walking up them, wild life and plants etc. We always seem to take lots of pictures while we are staying at the villa.The rooms are exactly as you see them on the website. Drinking water provided and you can purchase alcoholic drinks on site. A washing service is also provided. We enjoy the island so much when we holiday there,but this place always tops it off..quality in every way.

Room Tip: we have stayed in the pent house before and this was just lovely. We stayed in a smaller appartment...

We booked the whole villa for 8 adults and a child. During the total 2 days stay, the host Heidi and Alan showed us how a wonderful holiday can be. The villa, somelike a english-tai mixed style country villa, was well built and decorated. It is so warm and comfortable, we feel like stay in our relatives' house.

The host are really helpful. Besides the on-call free shuttle for two times a day, they also provide beach towels, hair dryer, oven and low-price drinkings including beers and wines. They collected a food delivery information book and provide us a local-call mobile phone which has been installed their number and driver's number. These all helped us a lot.

We were not so lucky to see the sunset and the wind was real big. All this didn't harm the environment, we really enjoyed sitting in the corridor drinking a cup of tea and doing nothing.

It's so grateful for the host to bulit such a nice place and we are lucky of choosing here!
