Koh Tao Star Villa
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 August 2009

We stayed at Koh Tao Star Villa for just 10 days and wished we could have stayed there for ever. We really did not want to go home.

Star Villa is a small complex with just 3 apartments for rent. Our apartment was on the same floor with just one other and there was a penthouse above which the propriotors let us take a sneek look at and it was lovely. Wish we could have stayed there. Maybe next time.

Because it is a small place it was very peacful and a lot of the time we had the whole floor to ourselves and also because of this the staff had pleanty of time for us and looked after our every need and gave us all the help we needed to make our holiday memerable. From a phone to loan so that we could contact them at anytime and call for collection - to ordering takeaways for us and giving advise on places of interest on the island and indeed in other parts of Thailand.

They even take away your dirty washing and put it back in your apartment all nicely folded. What service.

Keep up the good work Star Villa and keep an apartment free for us next year. We will be back.

Koh Tao Star Villa is a lovely place to stay. It is set on the side of a hill giving you great views of the countryside and sea with the Thailand mainland in the distance. There was nothing better than relaxing on the balcony with a drink at the end of the day. The owners Alan and Heidi were always there to look after us and even play a game of pool or darts. If we went back to Koh Tao we would definitely stay here again without any shadow of a doubt.

We stayed at this villa with our toddler. We were able to self cater using its well stocked kitchen. It had a beautiful view over the ocean and caught cool breezes as it was elevated. The distance from the hustle and bustle suited us and it was very quiet. We hired a quad bike to get around which made for an adventurous holiday. The staff were very helpful, even offering to babysit one night! The trip was made better from their hospitality and we have fond memories of our stay.

We stayed with Koh Tao Star Villa for 4 months while we were training to be Dive Instructors.

Alan and Heidi who are the owners looked after our every need. They were very friendly, unobtrusive and became good friends.

Star Villa consists of 2 Apartments (1 Bedroom) and 1 Penthouse (2/3 Bedrooms). We stayed in one of the apartments and were extremely impressed. With 7.1 surround sound, HD LCD TV, internet, kitchen, large living room area, big bedroom, with ensuite beautiful bathroom... we were in heaven!

It also has a separate games room, with Darts, Pool, Music, fridge, board games... so you will never get bored!

Although this place is not in the village, it rests just outside... which is a blessing when you want to sleep without listening to the thumping party music from Sairee. The view is truly a vision to see every day.

What more can I say about this place... we stayed for 4 months and I feel that it was my home... I miss it.

I can guarantee you cannot do better than this place on the whole of Koh Tao. Superb
