We spent a fantastic Christmas at Woodlawn Villas this year at Michelle and Luke's island paradise! This was our first trip to Koh Tao and we had heard lots of positive feedback about the island itself. We were absolutely delighted with our choice of Woodlawn for so many reasons; whilst the coastal resorts of Sairee look lovely you are in the heart of the dive schools and beach bars, at Woodlawn you are in a tropical, serene paradise! My husband and I travel extensively (this was our 11th trip of 2013) and enjoy our little luxuries in life, if this is your thing too then Woodlawn Villas will not disappoint.
We stayed in a spacious garden suite with a large bedroom, really sizeable kitchen, diner and lounge,along with an en suite. The facilities in the suites are tremendous, including a tv with multi-language channels, a fridge and an oven! With the supermarket at the end of the driveway it was very easy to stock up on essentials along with cold drinks and whatever takes your fancy! Aside from the villa and amenities, Michelle and Luke's little touches made the stay so special. The mobile phone with pre-programmed numbers is a genius idea and not only does it allow for you to contact the owners directly, you can order food delivery right to your doorstep - I kid you not!! This was perfect for a smoked salmon bagel breakfast delivery over the Christmas period. Not very Thai, but certainly very welcome!
The grounds of Woodlawn are spectacular, mature plants and trees, which are not only beautiful they also offer great shade and house incredible bird life. We cannot submit a review without mentioning the fabulous salt water swimming pool. Just lovely for a refreshing dip or to relax and read a book with nothing more than the sounds of the birds and palm trees swaying in the breeze.
In terms of Koh Tao itself, the "turtle" Island offers everything you could desire from a holiday. Beautiful scenery, beaches, diving, bars, a great selection of restaurants (incredibly well priced!) and full body massages for £6 an hour! Without Michelle and Luke's advice and top tips, we definitely would not have been exposed to such a rich selection on all counts and have enjoyed ourselves so much!
Michelle and Luke - thank you both so very much! We wish you continued success with Woodlawn villas and will be back for much longer next time! Bob and Marge
