We stayed 4 nights at Alila Villas and it was just amazing. Belynda helped us with everything. She organized my diving course, our tickets back to Bangkok, the motorbike rent and so on... The house itself is really huge, especially for just 2 persons. It has a great outdoor area with the small pool and the hammock. You also get a phone with which you can order food and call Belynda whenever you want. All in all was Koh Tao just perfect.

We stayed in the 1 bedroom villa for 4 nights in October 2012. Belynda, the owner, was incredibly helpful from the moment I booked. It was my boyfriends birthday whilst we were staying and belynda planned an amazing day for him, from a snorkelling trip through to private chef and even a birthday cake. I wouldn't have been able to do any of this myself and Belynda made it all possible. It was a fantastic day!

The Villa itself is very clean, modern and spacious. The outdoor area is really great, the hammock was lovely and the pool was great to have a dip in to cool down. The location is a 10 minute stroll from Sairee Beach, this meant it was in a great quiet stop but close enough to the action.

I would highly recommend the villa, to couple, family, or friends .... you wont be disappointed!

I stayed in Alila Villas with three friends and we had a great time! It is perfectly situated, 5 min walk to town and beach and 5 mins to the Ferry. There is a little shop just round the corner and the restaurants deliver within 20 mins to the villa! The pool is perfect for cooling down in, and the seats/ hammock around the pool make it a lovely place to relax. Belynda is extremely helpful and knowledgable of the island and helped us rent out a jeep for a day, and helped us book our snorkling expedition. She also helped massively with our journey back to Bangkok. The Villa itself is clean and is suitable for everyone. With two big double bedrooms, a big lounge and a kitchen the Villa is very spacious and safe with lockable gates. We are definitiely staying there again!

The villa is situated within 5 minutes’ walk from the main town/beach and is about a 5 minute drive from the port. There is a local shop selling groceries, drinks and toiletries next door to the villa.

The villa is perfect for everybody; a couple, 2 couples, a family or a group of friends. I went with a couple and a young child (20 months old) which worked really well. The villa is very secure with 2 locked gates. It has a plunge pool which is great for a cool down. There is a table and chairs under a canopy next to the pool for those who require shade. The villa itself has a large lounge and kitchen area, 2 big bedrooms - both with double beds, a bathroom with a shower and toilet and a spacious secure terrace with a small gate. We stayed at the villa for 10 days, it was cleaned every 3 days when we were also given clean towels.

Belynda (landlady) was brilliant and very helpful. We couldn’t have asked for anybody better. She gave us a mobile to contact her on if we needed anything.

We will definitely stay here again if we return to Koh Tao. I will be recommending Alila Villas
to anybody I know visiting the island.

I stayed at Alila Villas with three other friends for four nights and was very happy. If you go to Koh Tao this is a very good alternative to hotels.

PRO:
- Good location (uncrowded, silent)
- Modern look
- Very clean
- Friendly owner (arranges rent-a-car, picks you up...)
- Breakfast delivery on request
- Next conv-store ... 30 seconds walkway :-)
- Next beach 10min walkway
- Next restaurants 5min walkway

CONS:
- No washlet in the toilet like you have everywhere else in Thai
- Aircon only in sleeping rooms - But if you leave the doors to sleeping rooms open and turn on the celing-fans it's OK
- Internet connection not stable all the time
- One bathroom only - OK for family
- Very small pool :)

After spending hours and hours searching for somewhere to stay in Koh Tao I decided to book Alila Villas. I was torn between a few different hotels but booking Alila VIllas was the best decision I made. There are two bedrooms both very spacious, clean and nicely decorated with great air conditioning. The bathroom was also really nice and the lounge is great. There is a tv which had tv series, movies and music stored on it so you could watch whatever you wanted whenever you wanted. The pool area was great as well. From the photos I wasn't sure how good it would be but the pool was in the sun for a lot of the day and the pool area was lovely. Belynda is the owner of the villas and I can't even begin to explain how helpful she was! From the moment I booked the villa she offered an amazing service. Belynda made sure she knew which ferry we were getting so she could meet us at the port and help us get to the villa as not every taxi driver knows where the villa is (which surprised me considering that the location of the villa is pretty good). She also told us about a great boat tour we did and helped us hire a jeep and told us which beaches we needed to visit. I recommend this to anyone from couples to friends and family. I assure that you won't be disappointed!
