“Really peaceful & relaxing.”
Reviewed 12 June 2012

Woodlawn Villas is an incredibly relaxing environment. This was my first holiday with girlfriend Sam and the accomodation made it all the more special. Although it is the ultimate for peace and tranquility, it is in a great location for exploring the island. A special thank you to Luke & Michelle who were superb hosts and their long term island experience means they can offer great advice and tips on getting the most out of the island. I will most certainly be returning next year.
Simon.

If you have the chance to stay on this beautiful Island, do not think twice about booking Woodlawn Villas. From arranging a pier pick-up to providing cell phones, torches, order out menus, and a lot of advice the owners and staff did not overlook a single detail. Even when the power went out all over the Island due to a storm, the hotel's power remained on (probably a generator). Elaine, who is managing the villas while the owners are away, is absolutely lovely. By far, this accommodation is the best value for your money on the Island. Thanks for everything!

Beautiful villa with Luke and Michelle making us feel at home from the start. Recommended a fantastic snorkelling trip and was also very handy having the mobile phone provided to ring taxis to get around the island. The villa itself was immaculate, spacious and ideal for what we needed. You won't get the personal touches anywhere else on the island! Thanks for making it such a memorable trip, Sam and Jess!

This place was exactly what we was looking for. Quiet, secluded, relaxed, but minutes from everywhere. We were especially happy with how 'boutique' the place was - 3 individual villas and a 3 bed house, all in lovely Thai style. My partner is a 'dog person' and made friends with the gorgeous canine residents. A perfect spot if you want to chill, without the resort feel. I'd very happily go there again.

The place was awesome. We found it on trip advisor as it was ranked #1 on the island. Friendly owners, beautiful rooms, very relaxing.

Pros:
-they give you a cellphone on your arrival for contacting them or ordering meals from a restaurant across town (Zanzibar.) How many hotels / resorts you know that do that?
-beautiful large rooms that a very very clean
-the owners (Luke & Michelle) are up front about setting expectations in their welcome email i.e. it's a small family run business, not a lot of extras. They don't oversell like other places we have seen in Thailand. Which leaves you pleasantly surprised.
-well placed next to one of the 2 supermarkets on the island, 10mins from beach.
-nice and quiet.

Cons
-aircon only room, not in adjoining lounge. NOTE: the bedroom with ensuite bathroom is big anyway, and the adjoining lounge and kitchen is a bonus. I was just too lazy to go back into the room for aircon. Also they do state this in the welcome email so it wasn't a problem.

Thank you very much Luke and Michelle for making our time on Koh Tao so enjoyable. We wish we could have stayed longer with you, but you were fully booked! The next place you sent us was fine as well. Also thank you for advising me on Alvaro diving to get my open water ticket. Stoked! Thanks again. Well be back again next year (hopefully)

Luke and Michelle are definitely people cut out for hospitality. I was on a short trip to Koh Tao with my boyfriend and Luke really made sure we got the most out of Koh Tao.
The mobile phone they give you to contact them while on the island is super handy when you're after suggestions of what to do and where to go.
The menus for local cafes in the villas are also handy, we ordered breakfast each morning we were there an it was great.
The villa is a bit further from the beach but we didn't so much mind the walk as we enjoyed staying at woodlawn. Its also close to the 'aukotan' a kind of one stop shop which was also handy.
We would definitely stay here again if we make it back to Koh Tao.

Room Tip: We managed to get an upgrade to the twilight villa which was great but pure luck so i don't thin...
