By far, the best vacation one could ever ask for. The villas are beautifully decorated, clean, and comfortably luxurious. The staffs are wonderful and so very sweet. The location is secluded and private creating a sense of 'home away from home' and as though having one's own private pool over looking the vast greenery and endless ocean ahead. This resort...

As we arrived lovely Janin made us feel at home and much beyond!!! She was so lovely you can see that she truly cares for her visitors as they were her privet guests.

We stayed in early October and found the Rocks Villas to be a perfect location. The staff, and in particular Janine, were brilliant. They were very knowledgeable about things to do and places to visit on the island and really helped us to plan a birthday surprise for one of our party. The mobile phone you get on arrival, along...

When you look at the views from your terrace, you'll think that the trip up the hill was well worth it. In the end, we go to the Ko Tao to see that. I was perhaps a little bit disappointed by the quality of the rooms, they're big and they have all you need, but I was a bit naive...

The Rocks Villas lie at the end of a road 70 meters above Sairee Beach and has a beautiful view to the sea. Except from the fascinating jungle sounds, its a quiet place to relax at the balcony or by the nice swimming pool. The staff is very helpful and the villas are clean and very comfortable. A great base...

We had an incredible four days at The Rocks. The manager, Scottie gave us some amazing recommendations (dive shops, restaurants, etc.) and advice when it came to around Koh Toa. We loved the cell phone that was provided, and knowing that Scottie was just a phone call away was great. It also came in handy when ordering takeout to our...

We absolutely fell in love with Koh Tao and the Rocks Villa was a perfect oasis from which to explore it!

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 5 nights whilst taking our Open Water diving course on Ko Tao. I had heard properties directly on Sairee beach were noisy all night due to the beach parties and wanted somewhere a little away from that as I’m a light sleeper, but still near to the action. The villa was wonderful and...

Highly recommend The Rocks! Janine was a fantastic host and the property is beautiful. She helped arrange a cost-included taxi to take us up to the property from the docks. Though we booked one of the smaller villas, when we checked in we were upgraded to one that was a little larger and further up the hill. The pool is...
