We had a great stay at the bungalow: quiet and romantic place at Koh Tao, great views and warm welcome. The walk up to the cribs is quite steep, but well worth it and of course can always rent a scooter. We liked the walk on the beach to the restaurants and got some good advices from Andre for places to enjoy a nice Thai dinner. Will recommend La Cigale to friends visiting the island!

Staying in the "Family Villa" on our honeymoon was one of my favorite places! The villa is extremely nice and beautiful--with a bathroom/shower area that is my dream (vines, natural light, seemingly outside but not)... Gorgeous views and pretty easy walking down to the beach or to the nearby 'town' area. What is almost best of all is the great communication and helpfulness of Andre during our stay. Highly recommended!

We had booked the family villa for 3 nights, but decided to stay a extra night.

Andre was very helpful and friendly and is always on call. The houses are beautiful and very close to nature.

They are spacious and wonderfully decorated. We rented a scooter with Andre which was a perfect way to explore Koh Tao.

We really felt at home and would definately go back and stay at La Cigale again.

Highly recommended.

Femke & Elmar

We recently stayed at La Cigale for a couple of nights and it was so lovely.The apartments are far from the noisy of the main Sairee Beach center. The beach is just a few minutes.It's a perfect relaxation, you can hear only the sounds of birds.Apartments are very unique with wonderful natural colours.I would definitely like to come back again.

We stay in la cigale for 2 days and it was great! if you want some relax time off the resorts, ull love it!
The bathroom is pretty cool!
There's a 1 - 2 minute Climb from the road, but if u have minimal physical fitness ull be okay to walk it. But we are hikers so it doesnt matters
But thats what makes the beauty of it, it gets you more isolated!

Stayed here in the summer of 2012 and promised I'd write a review as we were leaving as I was so impressed.

Really got a good feeling about the place. Unfortunately, my gf and I had to leave a day early and Andre had no issues and was very accommodating. Like many have said he was a great help and provided some great advice about the island. He even offered to give me a free motorbike lesson although wouldn't rent us one in case something happened. Very refreshing as most places would just take your money and say nothing!

Pros - Incredible views, lovely houses, removed from the chaos of the centre without being too far away, great host, reasonable price and quite close to the beach (the quiet side too)

Cons - be prepared and happy to take a tuk-tuk home. Easier than walking but we didn't really consider this - road back is quite dark and dangerous (costs about €2 so not really an issue).
The downside of the beautiful setting is that there can be a few insects (not inside - houses are very well maintained and protected) which my gf was conscious of. Didn't bother me but something to watch out for.


All in all a really positive experience and I would recommend to friends and family travelling to the island.

everything is perfect and i write this while i still stay at the hotel right now. To my friends,perhaps too many ants and while it rains , the water drops as well from the open kitch and bathroom. But the service is great. i left tips for them to clean the room but this is the only hotel in thailand has not taken it. The view and the design is great and i will stay here again when i come here.
