This place is absolutely stunning - the view was breathtaking. The owners made us feel so welcome helping us with where to dine and making us feel like we were in a home away from home! I would definately reccomend monkey flower villa as a romantic place to escape from it all.

Dream away at monkeyflower as we did for 3 weeks,enjoy koh tao and come home in
a superluxeryvilla to enjoy one of the best views on koh tao while sipping your cocktail
in the roofjumpable infinity edge swimmingpool.
A place to relax and be creative while having the option to record some music,write some lirics,read a book or just daze away for as long as you want just staring the view.
Check out the pics on their website and i assure you its 10 times beter in real life!
Superfriendly people will help you with everything you might need,their like family.
At least rent it for one night,this shouldn't be missed!

Roofjump the pool!

Stunning art deco property overlooking the bay. We stayed during the second leg of our honeymoon while I was getting my open water diving qualification. All of the instructors were very impressed when I told them where we were staying.
The infinity pool is amazing; you can jump of the roof of the villa into it and see the entire bay below. The rooms are beautifully decorated and fitted out. Lincoln and his wife Woonsen couldn't have been more helpful.

The only downsides to the villa are it's location at the top of a very steep hill and the rooster that wakes you up in the morning. You will need a bike to get around anyway and if you are competent on it negotiating the hill will not be a problem, that said it's not for the faint hearted.

Call Lincoln before you arrive, he'll pick you up at the ferry.

I spent a week at Monkey Flower Villa in Sept 09 and can honestly say it was the value for money accomodation I have come across. The view from the pool and bedroom is a beautiful as you will find. It is such a relaxing place that, what would start out as a refreshing cold drink by the pool, 3 hours later had turned into watching the fire twirlers on the beach from the very same spot. It is too easy to just let your imagination wander as you gaze out over the bay from your hill top vantage point.
I should also mention that Lincoln, the owner, and his partner Woonsen, were great hosts and only too happy to help out in any way they could, from advice on the best bars and places to eat, to giving a lift in to town for supplies. The night we spent jamming in his music studio is aslo a memory i will keep for ever. I left the place feeling as if I had been staying with friends rather than paying for holiday accomodation.
I should also mention that at the time I stayed that Monkey Flower Villa was in the final stages of being completed and there were still a few unfinished projects, but certainly none that in anyway detracted form the experience.
To sum up I would say it is a beautiful place, with lovely hosts and a place I will definately be visiting again, and not soon enough for my liking. You definately wont regret spending some time here and if you stay here once it wont be the last.

Monkey Villa was a great place to stay for our visit to Koh Tao, as it splits into two seperate floors which are completely self contained it made it perfect for us, giving privacy if required. It is really spacious and the entire villa is very unique in it's interior and exterior. The view from up there is amazing, and worth the steep climb to the Villa. To reach the main town, restaurants and bars it's a bit of a stroll along the beach but during the day if you have hire mopeds or a car you have no problems getting back and forth.
Best part of the Villa is the pool with a view over the bay and being able to jump of the roof into the pool was a great way to spend the days. In the evening you are able to turn on the night lights and still go for a dip.
The owners were helpful and always prepared to offer advice on restaurants and activities in Koh Tao.
Pick up and drop off at the start and end of our stay were also no problem.

Amazing. Monkey Flower Villa would easily have some of the best views in Ko Tao. Add to this the amazing infinite pool and the access to the roof for amazing sunsets. The hosts are great, always willing to help out and give advice. This place has all the facilities that you would need. Kitchen available, wireless internet, great entertainment system and plenty of space. Ko Tao is a place to relax and this is definitely the place to do it. Highly recommend.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Monkey Flower Villas feature extraordinary architecture and amenities. Built into the natural beauty and granite boulders of the hillside overlooking Sairee beach, the longest and most popular beach on Koh Tao, Monkey Flower Villas is only a few minutes walk to the sand, yet very private, and secure. Every villa has stunning sea and beach views. The "Upper" villa has a very large private infinity edge swimming pool and spa (take the bridge to the roof and jump into the pool, if you like!). The master bedrooms are huge, very romantic, safe, and comfortable, Most of the rooms boast 50" flat screen HDTVs with premium Western programing, air-con, free Wi-Fi internet access. The "Upper" villa features the "flying" bed, hardwood floors, and a huge sliding glass window overlooking the swimming pool and the bay below. There are several sound systems, and musical instruments available to use. All guests enjoy 24 hour a day courtesy car and driver service to anywhere they want to go on Koh Tao*. Each villa is provided with a local mobile phone for easy access to all important numbers. Monkey Flower Villas has been recognized as providing an excellent customer experience and service. *As our guest, you will enjoy our famous 24 hour a day complimentary car and driver service, for pick-up and drop-off to anywhere you want to go on Koh Tao, during your entire stay! Many people do not realize that normal taxi service on Koh Tao is very expensive compared to other parts of Thailand, with a simple ride from town to town often costing 500. Thai Baht or more one way, and TWICE that amount late at night. If you were considering renting motorbikes, our driver service can also save you from possible extortion by unscrupulous renters, who prey on tourists, and the risks of riding a motorcycle on an island with many dirt roads and difficult riding conditions. For these reasons, our car and driver service is not only convenient, but also an incredible value! When you check in, you will be given a local Thai mobile phone, with important numbers and credit already installed. When you need to be dropped off or picked up, simply speed dial your driver, who will be there in a few short minutes. No other accommodation on Koh Tao offers this kind of complete transportation solution. ... more   less
