Woodlawn Villas
Ranked #10 of 49 Hotels in Koh Tao
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 18, 2011

I stayed at Woodlawn for 5 nights and chose this place based on the excellent reviews I had read, I was not disappointed. Even before I had arrived I was very impressed with the speedy and helpful responses from the emails I had sent (advice on the right ferry to get etc) and was even offered a free upgrade! The villa's are a little off the beaten track , but to be honest this is a benefit as you really feel like you are in the heart of Koh Tao - it's very peaceful. One thing I would highlight is that to my particular villa there were a fair few steps up to it, but nothing too strenuous. The villa I stayed in was spacious and spotlessly clean. There was a kitchenette should you want to cook, TV with a big selection of DVD's and a large bathroom with shower, the towels / sheets were changed regularly overall a really nice stay.The villa's are a really good base from which to explore the island and the nearest beach was only a 15 minute walk away. One really great thing is that the owners Luke and Michelle really go out of their way to make sure you are equipped with as much information to get the most of your time on the island recommending best beaches, where to eat etc They also provided a mobile phone with taxi numbers on which is a really great touch. If you want a peaceful stay with the personal touch I would highly recommend !

Me and my girlfriend were staying here in october and we loved it. Nice villas, friendly stuff, nice environment. Ovners, Luke and Michelle are very friendly, they told us where is good place to eat, nice beaches, they also gave us phone so we could call Taxi, order food, call them if there was any problem. The place is just 3 min walk from main road. I recomend you to rent a bike and explore the island, for one day you will pay only 150B. We stayed in Garden suite, it is very big. If we decide to go to Koh Tao again we will stay there.

We stayed in Koh Tao for 5 nights in september and had pre-booked a Garden Villa. We've read the excellent reviews and decided to give it a go, and we were not disappointed at all. It was absolutely fantastic!! On arrival we were even upgraded to a Garden suite which was more than we bargained for. Michelle and Luke were so friendly, and always happy to give tips and recommendation on where to go. They also always very helpful whatever you ask them for. This made our experiende even better. The villa was absolutely perfect. Very spacious and beatiful. We could not have asked for better. The location itself is really unique and so worth it. You're only 5 minutes away from everything: The amazing beaches, the restautants, bars, shops... I'll definitely recommend to hire a bike as it allows you to discover the island and what an amazing island! We couln't get enough of it!!! All in all it was just perfect. Thanks to Michelle and Luke for giving us a bit of paradise. We will definitely come back!! Delphine and Jason

My girlfriend and I were on Ko Tao for six nights and decided ahead of time to book the Garden Villa for the duration of our time on Ko Tao, and are happy to say we had absolutely no regrets. Our villa was very clean, cute, and comfortable. It was great to have AC and all the modern conveniences one could need. We even were given a cellphone to take a long with us on our adventures in case we needed help or had any questions. Luke also gave us good advice for a company to rent a scooter from without getting scammed (I have heard of some horror stories on Ko Tao). With a scooter, we were only a couple minutes away from good restaurants, shopping, and the beach. We spent our days oh Ko Tao exploring/snorkeling in as many different beaches as possible, and coming back to our headquarters in the Garden Villa was a very peaceful and relaxing way to end the day. If you like staying off the beaten path and having plenty of peace and quiet, this is the place. Highly recommended!

I stayed in the Twilight Villa with my family for 6 nights and it was fabulous! Lovely owners and staff, everything was perfectly clean, really nicely decorated and so spacious and comfortable. The owners Luke and Michelle really have thought of everything to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. Only wish we could have stayed longer! We highly recommend the Twilight Villa you will not be disappointed - we will be back again next year!

We stayed in a villa for 3 nights in July. It was the ideal location for exploring the island. It is very private and quiet and only a few min walk from shops bars and beach. We explored a few beaches whilst there, and the taxi picked us up from the villa.
What made it so perfect was out hosts Michelle and Luke. They made sure we had everything we needed and more. They provided us with mobile phones. torches, local numbers and always had great recommendations for trips, restaurants etc.
I will definatly be recommending this place to all my friends!
Cant wait to go back.
