We came to Koh Tao for a getaway last June and stayed in both Lincon's Villa and the Haad Tien. I have been to Koh Tao in the past staying for several weeks so have a pretty good idea of what is available and Monkey Flower is the best in my opinion. The villa is located quite high on the side of the mountain and has stunning views over the bay it is a single stand alone villa so you have a fair amount of privacy including the pool and spa that is just for you. The villa is located about 5 minutes (by vehicle) to the North of Sairee beach which is where all the action is, so it's far enough away to not hear the parties on the beach but close enough to easily head down if you want to go. I would recommend hiring a motorbike (ONLY IF YOU ALREADY KNOW HOW TO RIDE ONE, Thailand is NOT the place to be learning to ride), as the hill is pretty steep from the main road to the villa. While we were there it was my girlfriends birthday and we decided to have a party with friends that live on the island. Lincon and Woonsen was extremely helpful with everything even providing his awesome musical talents and system for the party. Overall Monkey Flower has the personal touch and not the cold rip cash out of you hotel approach I highly recommend and will hopefully be back there in the future.

My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights (wish it could have been more, but it was booked) on our honeymoon and it was without a doubt the highlight of our 2 weeks in Thailand. The views from the villa and pool overlooking Sairee Beach were breathtaking. The villa itself was beautiful, clean and comfortable.

Lincoln and Woonsen (Joy and little Max, too) were the best hosts you could imagine and very accomodating with whatever we needed - whether it was a ride into town, a phone to use, a recommendation on dining, some drinking partners, or a little privacy.

If you are coming to Koh Tao (or anywhere close), I highly recommend the Monkey Flower Villa for your stay. We can't wait to go back!

My wife and I stayed at Monkey Flower for 4 nights of our honeymoon and it was one of the highlights of our trip. The setting is amazing, with the most stunning view across the bay over your own private infinity pool. Lincoln and Woonsen are the best hosts you could ask for and nothing is too much effort for them. Getting a ride in Lincoln's 4x4 is a real treat and the best way to see the island!

My one little bit of advice is, if you plan to go into town in the evening, which is less no more than a 10 minute walk down the hill and along the beach, take a flashlight/torch with you as it is pitch black when you come back, inevitably after a few too many cocktails!

We stayed at Monkey Flower for 2 nights, it was stunning! The view of Sairee beach from the infinity pool was breathtaking. The villa was absolutely huge with the bedroom consisting of a floating bed, 50'' plasma and walk-in wardrobe. The upper villa can be converted to sleep up to 6-8 people if required. Bathroom was very nice especially the shower and we were free to use the communal kitchen.

We spent most of the second day relaxing by the pool and jacuzzi and also jumping off the roof into the pool. Monkey Flower is well located and just a 10 minute walk to north Sairee beach.

Lincoln and Woonsen were happy to take us around the island and pick us up when we needed a lift back in his classic jeep with environmentally friendly Air Con. Lincoln also recommended an excellent dive centre and the instructor came up to the villa to discuss our options, from which we did a dive with the next day.

Lincoln and Woonsen were great hosts for the end of our perfect stay in Koh Tao.

We were at Monkey Flower Villa when it was not yet completely finished. Despite that we had a great holiday in one of the most beautiful places on the island. One has the best view over the island, a superb infinity pool in which you can jump from the roof. The owners and Ricky the Coconut Dog are very friendly and want to help you with everything you ask. Certainly recommended!
