my Boyfriend and I booked 4 Nights at the Rocks Luxury Villas. It was a bit of a treat as it was the last leg of our holiday in Thailand.
We e-mailed the Rocks beforehand and received a free pick up shuttle from the pier. When we arrived we were greeted by a very jolly Chloe - she was great, and gave us loads of advice on how to spend our time on the island.
Our villa was really lovely and spacious. We had booked a couples villa and there was ample space. The bed was massive and the airconditioning kept the rooms lovely and cool. The bathroom was also very spacious with a big shower. They provide you with shampoo and conditioner, and the towels and sheets are changed everyday. They also give you lots of DVD's and takaway menus that you can order and they deliver direct to your villa!
When you arrive at the hotel you are given a mobile phone and can use it to order your breakfast every day! There is a big choice to choose from and Chloe delivered it every morning on the balcony overlooking the spectacular views. The thing about this hotel is that they go the extra mile to make your stay comfortable. The moblie phones also have lots of handy numbers so you can book taxis, restaurants and even Mopeds. would definitely recommend that you hire a moped as the Villas are up a hill about 5/10 mins away from the main beach.
The pool was great and we basically had it to ourselves. They provide cushions for the sunbeds. it was a paradise.
There are loads of great things to do in Koh Tao from chilling at the beach - going on long tail boat tours, nightlife, nice restaurants and even lovely spas at reasonable prices. Koh Tao was by far my favourite island!
I would definitely recommend the Villas! We had a great stay!
