We came to Koh Tao for a getaway last June and stayed in both Lincon's Villa and the Haad Tien. I have been to Koh Tao in the past staying for several weeks so have a pretty good idea of what is available and Monkey Flower is the best in my opinion. The villa is located quite high on the side of the mountain and has stunning views over the bay it is a single stand alone villa so you have a fair amount of privacy including the pool and spa that is just for you. The villa is located about 5 minutes (by vehicle) to the North of Sairee beach which is where all the action is, so it's far enough away to not hear the parties on the beach but close enough to easily head down if you want to go. I would recommend hiring a motorbike (ONLY IF YOU ALREADY KNOW HOW TO RIDE ONE, Thailand is NOT the place to be learning to ride), as the hill is pretty steep from the main road to the villa. While we were there it was my girlfriends birthday and we decided to have a party with friends that live on the island. Lincon and Woonsen was extremely helpful with everything even providing his awesome musical talents and system for the party. Overall Monkey Flower has the personal touch and not the cold rip cash out of you hotel approach I highly recommend and will hopefully be back there in the future.

Thai Baht or more one way, and TWICE that amount late at night. If you were considering renting motorbikes, our driver service can also save you from possible extortion by unscrupulous renters, who prey on tourists, and the risks of riding a motorcycle on an island with many dirt roads and difficult riding conditions. For these reasons, our car and driver service is not only convenient, but also an incredible value!
