Monkey Villa was our first stop after Bangkok. Lincoln's limo picked us up at the dock and brought us to the most beautiful home in the hills. Highlights included having breakfast delivered poolside, snorkeling with Lincoln and his mother Joy, riding in the truck and hanging on for dear life with Ricky the dog, nightly drinks at Vibe on the beach, seeing Lincoln catch squirmy geckos, getting massages in our own bedroom, and feeling like we were temporarily part of a wonderful Thai/American/South African family. The only downside for me was the rooster that loved to hang outside the bedroom, and the occasional music celebration on the beach that went until the wee hours, but we will definitely return to Monkey Flower. Can't wait to see the new tree house!

Thank you for the lovely review! After your visit, the rooster was moved to a new home, on the other side of the island (not chicken soup!). It was pleasure to have you and your lovely family at Monkey Flower Villa and we are all looking forward to your return! Lincoln, Woonsen, Mom, Max, Ricky, and fish

We spent 4 days at Monkey Flower Villa and what a group of special people to host you (Lincoln, Woonsen, Joy - and of course baby Max, and Ricky the motorcycle riding dog!). Our son loved the infinity pool and jumping off the roof. Lincoln couldn't do enough for you, whether giving you a lift in his truck or on the back of the motorcycle or recommending places to go and places to eat.
This really is a special place to relax and overlook the beautiful coast of Koh Tao. All the best to you and we will be back!

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!

Monkey Flower Villas feature extraordinary architecture and amenities.

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
