My husband and I stayed here for a week on our honeymoon and had such a great time! The place was amazing, but when we were told we were the last booking for the season it was obvious - beds put up, and a general air of the end of a busy season. But it's no surprise they were busy - the views were beautiful, the housekeeper was so helpful and friendly (he even got our laundry done for us!), and the trip to town was so quick.
Marek met us at the pier and brought us back to the villa so we didn't have to worry about finding our way there. He was extremely helpful when we arrived giving us recommendations of places to eat (Tukta is amazing!), the best places for tours, and even places to find craft beer on the island! And he provided us with a house cell phone to call cabs, set up appointments, or get in touch with him day or night.
The only problem we had was we couldn't get any hot water despite following the instructions left for us. Not so bad considering most days we came back pretty hot and sweaty after being in the sun all day but it's one of those things you don't realize you'll miss until it's gone!
Otherwise we loved how quiet and secluded Villa Kantaraya was, we loved the open floor plan, and the private pool, and we would definitely recommend it to others as a romantic location on an otherwise party and adventure island.
Thanks for making our honeymoon unforgettable!!!

I stayed over Christmas and New year and had a great time. It was my second time staying at the Villa. I was greeted warmly by both yee and Marak and the help they provided during the stay was appreciated. I like the location, its peaceful but only a short journey of 5 mins to get to the main hubs on Koh Tao. Everything is well maintained and it is a very luxurious place to stay. I will 100% be back in the future.
Very nice place! but for two ppl its too big :D go with at least 4ppls. Selfphone signal is very bad in there and no wifi atm what was a litle dissapointment. And the road to villa is a bit tricky. Rent a scooter that has dirt tires. and wach out for speed bumps, you will scracth your scooter belly pretty sure. :D Thanks to marek for an good service and helpfull attidute.

We had a very nice time staying at Villa Kantaraya.The view is amazing! Marek was very helpful with anything we needed, and gave some good advice on where to eat. The beach closest to the villa is so beautiful, and we even saw babysharks snorkelling. It is a bit of a walk to get there, but a little excercise doesnt hurt even if you're on vacation. The only tiny issue is that the villa is a bit far away from restaurants and the city centre, but we didnt rent scooters so I guess if you do that wont be an issue at all. We would definitely stay here again!
Villa located at hill top. Day & night view is superb. Quiet environment, great facility & nice people too.
Quite a distance from Sairee Beach & traveling in and out from villa is very pricy.
If you want to escape for a few days and totally relax then this is the place for you. This Villa is just as amazing in real life as the photos are. We know Koh Tao very well and had not been to this side of the island before and will return for sure. Views from the balcony for a sunset drink are amazing and if you wake early enough to watch the sunrise you can see it from your bed.
You can also sleep and see the stars from the skylight, and I don't know many places in the world where you can do that.
If you want to stay right near bars and nightlife then this probably isn't the place for you. It is a little out of the way and you will need to rent a motorbike or get a taxi there. Well worth it for the relaxation and privacy you will have!
I had the best two nights sleep there in my whole trip.
We found the food at nearby moondance bungalow down the hill some of the best Thai food on the island - along with a stunning swimming spot that you don't have to share with anyone else :)

We had a wonderful time in the villa with our 3 boys. Loads of space, beautiful rooms and views, great location in a quieter part of the island, but still close to the main hubs. Great recommendations from Marek and the owner - sundowners at Moon Dance not to be missed, great morning swims and breakfast shakes at Aow Leuk beach, snorkelling at Tanote Bay. We rented quad bikes which gave us the freedom to get around the island and have a great base to return to. Highly recommended.
