“Amazing Villa”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

We stayed in this villa a few days in july before moving to another resort as we arrived earlier than expected and we were very lucky we found it as island was nearly full. It is located in Sairee Beach area and super close to everything but still very private. We only used the big bedroom but it was so nice and comfortable and had a door to the private pool and beautiful garden. There was also a kitchen, but we did not really use it. Great value for money in great location.

Usually I have not made it a habit to write reviews of places I have visited, but Lipanaa was such a nice experience that I felt I had to write a few words.

First of all, if you are going to Koh Tao there are of course lots of places to stay - especially in Sairee Village - but few offers privacy and comfort for a group as this villa did. You can walk to some of the best restaurants and bars in 5 minutes and reach the best in less than 10 (by foot). Yet, once in the villa, you feel like you are in your own world and can just RELAX. So good.

I actually found the villa's website by accident as I was looking for another resort, but just fell in love with the look and description of the villa and must say that it lived well up to expectations.

The villa has two bedrooms. One is a bit larger and opens to the private pool and sitting area while the other is a bit smaller - perfect for your single friend joining you (or a couple). There is also a nice living room/lounge area and a kitchen with a large fridge for drinks.

Best of all - they actually come and clean daily !!! So for the "slops" among us, that's perfect.

I found this place for my family on the internet as I wanted us to stay close to restaurants and beach and not spend a fortune. The property was located an estimated 600 mts from my diving center big blue on sairee beach and just a few minutes walk from some really good eats.

In a beautiful garden with a private pool and great privacy it was an awesome stay for my wife and kids while I was diving. The bedrooms are a good size, especially the master and the bathrooms very clean and nicely decorated. Linen, towels, toiletries were included and some invisible staff swung by daily to clean up my kids' mess. Just perfect.

Already missing the beautiful koh tao nights around the pool.

Visited koh tao for a short diving trip and got recommended this villa by the dive outfit. What a bargain with two bedrooms, own pool, large garden and good sized lounge plus we could comfortably walk to beach and restaurant due to the central location in saires village. Took just 5 minutes to walk to lotus beach bar. Perfect..

the villa was cleaned daily and we even caught a free transfer on departure.... will be my new home in koh tao every time I visit !!

We had a chance to stay at this fantastic place due to a last minute booking falling through with another resort, so they offered us this due to managing it for the owners. Apparently the villa had just been completely renovated and we were the first to experience the new features and space.

First of all it enjoys an excellent located very close to the best restaurants and night life in Sairee Village area and it's just about 2 minutes walk to the nearest shop where you can stock up on cigarettes, drinks and snacks. There is even a laundry place nearby.

The villa itself sits in a beautiful garden with a private pool and stunning outdoor areas to lounge in. We had several romantic dinners under the straw roof of the outdoor hut and under the stars.

We were just a couple, so we made do with the master bedroom which was large and comfortable and opened up to the pool. It had a lovely bathroom with stunning tiles and mosaic and left nothing for want.

In all honesty we did not make use of the kitchen, but if we had stayed longer we might have.

All in all this was just a near perfect stay - the only con - that we could only stay 4 nights.

ps. the management provides daily maid service and come by and check on you from time to time.

We booked this villa for a special occasion for a week stay. We had read the other reviews on here and seen the pictures on the Villa Lipanaa's website. It looked Idillyc and so we deicded to book this over our usual hotel the Seashell.

This was the biggest mistake of our holiday. Firstly, the Villa is well and truly out of the way and we quickly realised that to get to the centre of ko toa, safely and easily we would need to hire a quad or scooter for the duration. It is advertised as being a short walk which I can assure you it isn't.

We were greeted by the cleaner who showed us around the villa. First impressions werent what we had hoped. The Villa was tired and was in need of some TLC as it was very outdated the bathroom especially didnt feel clean.

Fist impressions aside we decided to make the best of our week. Within a few hours of unpacking I heard a noise as if something was running accross the roof. I lookoed up to see and enourmous lizard the size of a small cat!

Over the course of the next day or so this lizard re-appeared, the last time by the side of our bed. At this point we rang the owner who wasnt particularly surprised or helpful. She called the cleaner who promptly turned up armed with some fly spray and a stick! Needless to say he didnt catch it and promised to return in the evening to have another go!

We decided we had seen enough (after a rather large spider appeared in the bathroom). We called the owner to say we werent prepared to stay somewhere which was clearly infested with lizards and spiders. We asked for our money back for the time which we werent going to be spending their (4 of the 6 nights). She declined to offer any refund and didnt want to talk to us any more.

We had to check out and then get our bags (by quad) back to the centre where we found alternative accomodation (back at the seashell) resort for our remaining stay.

DO NOT stay here unless you like being in the middle of no-where and like large unsects the size of small animals. We are still trying to recover our money from the owners who just ignore our communications to them.

Just a quick one: This villa was just a perfect choice for us. After having been to fm party on Phangan we wanted to splash out a bit and being 4 boys in need of fun this place was great to stay in. Close to Asia Divers where we did some scuba diving also.

Next time we come down from BKK for a week of diving and fun, this villa will be our choice 4sure.
