“couldn't recommend it more highly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2013

Stayed as a couple at villa Adora in September 2012. Had booked it following reading the reviews on this site and we weren't disappointed. The villa itself and the outside space were both finished to a high standard. The infinity pool itself was a real treat with views overlooking the bay and wasn't overlooked. Being given the mobile phone was a nice gesture although think we only used it a couple of times during our stay to order breakfast. You are given breakfast vouchers at the start of your stay and just ring on a morning to place your order and it is delivered to your villa about 30mins after- would recommend the breakfast burrito!
The villa was a bit of a walk away from the main beach area, about 30mins from the start of the shops/ beachfront restaurants etc but we used this an excuse for eating more, meant it was quiet on a night and it was quite a pleasant walk and not difficult to navigate. We didn't hire motorbikes after seeing the results of a few accidents but I didn't feel that we missed out as a result of this. Plenty of taxis if required but we managed to get everywhere on foot.
We did the snorkelling trip recommended by Dani and I would have to agree with one of the other reviews that it wasn't a highlight with it being a busy touristy boat and relatively expensive. If I were to do it again I would probably get a taxi instead to one of the better snorkelling bays and spend a day on the beach snorkelling instead rather than being told when to get onto and off the boat to go to the next site.
If I went back to Koh Tao would definitely stay at the villas again and would highly recommend them to others, especially couples looking for a romatic get away.

I'm really glad you enjoyed your stay in our Villa Adoro. We aim to offer a private getaway where you can relax in the luxury of the Villa.
We have taken your comments on board, we now also offer a private long tail trip around the island as well as the snorkel tour and the private speedboat.

We stayed on Koh Tao for over three weeks in Dec 2012. We stayed in three different villas all very beautiful and all with with fantastic views. We would rate them all 5 star but Koh Toa Heights, villa Adora would would be number one. As stated by others the outside space,the pool, the phone, the breakfast, the overhead fans, the all round decor and the standard of fittings,the daily clean all helped to make it a great and relaxing stay. Dani though was extremely helpful she lent us her iron for the week we were there (the villas now have iron and ironing board) she also arranged for us to hire a motorbike for the whole three and a half weeks we were on the island without us having to hand over our passports!! We are experienced travellers in Thailand we have visited yearly for the last 30 years but this was our first trip to this island and we found Dani's help and advice about the island helped with the rest of our stay. All in all 10 of 10 to Koh Tao Heights. Jamie & Helen

We stayed here in September for our honeymoon and fell in love with the place. The villas are beautiful, view is top class and pool is fab. You are given a mobile phone on arrival packed with handy numbers and lots of takeaway menus. Breakfast is delivered by takeaway and is yummy.
Only reason i have not given this 5 stars is because of the girl Dani who looks after you.
We asked her to book us a snorkelling trip which is all part of her job. The trip was awful it was a trip for backpackers on a rotten boat not for honeymooners. She should realise that the type of people staying in the villas would not appreciate a tour like that. We got in touch and told her what time we needed to leave at on our last day and she said she would arrange a taxi and meet us at the villa beforehand to check out. The taxi arrived and no sign of Dani. We needed to see her as she had our ferry tickets so we couldnt just up and leave. I phoned her and clearly woke her up from her sleep and it was mid morning. She said she would be straight up and no apologies. The taxi man was getting very irrate and said he would drive the road she uses and we could flag her down along the way. We did this and saw her on the road on her moped and the taxi man tooted his horn and she didnt stop so we had to turn and go back to the villa. My husband ran in to see her and she didnt apologise.
The guy who owns and built these villas is lovely and has done a fab job. Excellent value for money and i would definitely return.

I am glad you enjoyed the Villa, the private swimming pool with the sunset view!
We have taken your comments on board, I would like to note that a private speedboat was also an option and we now also work with a long tail so we can offer a private trip around the island. In regards to the taxi and your check out, I can only apologise.
We have had many good comments and feedback about Dani, again I can only apologise if you felt this way.

My husband and I were looking to spoil ourselves for a few nights in Koh Tao and at short notice, was able to book 2 nights in Villa Adora through P&D Travel Koh Tao. We would have liked to stay longer but sadly, the villa was not available.

Upon arriving from Koh Samui, we were greeted at the pier by Dani and taken to the Villa. First impressions of the villa were excellent!!

The Villa itself has everything you could possibly ask for... own private pool with jacuzzi area, stunning view, fully equipped kitchen, daily housekeeping service, safe, huge widescreen TV, movies on demand and so many places to just relax and chill both inside and out (it's hard to choose where you want to position yourself!). It's also worth mentioning that the bed is positively one of the most comfortable mattresses I have slept on for a long time!

It was delightful after receiving our breakfast delivery, to sit at the patio area dining table and take in the ocean view each morning over breakfast. This was usually quickly followed by a swim in the pool, a rinse in the outdoor shower and chilling out in the hammock or day bed area.

Dani showed us a specifically designed booklet, that gives you loads of information on activities and recommendations on where to dine in Koh Tao, or you can just order in. If ever you need anything, Dani is only a quick phone call away and always a pleasure to deal with.

I cannot recommend this place enough! Trust what all the reviewers have said. You won't be disappointed!

Tip: Book ahead! You don't want to miss out. We found it very hard to leave and would have stayed longer if we could have.

I'm really glad you enjoyed your time here. The privacy of the villas are the perfect setting for spending some time with your partner and spoiling yourselves, in todays modern world it can be hard to find the time to relax together. Very happy our villas gave you that opportunity.
We are already getting booked up for next year, so I would agree make sure you book ahead!
Hope we see you again soon!

We were stopping elsewhere in koh tao and was our honeymoon and also my birthday whilst on the island, we decided the hotel wasnt quite upto scratch and looked for something else, and wow we are so glad we did. I emailed and danielle was very quick in responding and luckily the villa was free, as no one was in it we were able to check in early and leave late. Breakfast being delivered was a novelty and the burrito was awesome! This place made our honeymoon! Felt like something in a movie, friend and family were very very jealous! On our honeymoon we stayed at some £10 a night guest houses, a 5* hotel in dubai....then there was this! would definatley stay here again. Danielle was great, we were provided with a mobile to call for breakfast, we also had a delivery from hippo one night but this was abit to be desired. Was a 15 minute walk to our favourite spot - fizz bar. View was out of this world, villa was all so very modern, all sorts of details were provided for the local area. 10/10 such a great find.

If you crave your own personal space with a view to die for, all the mod cons in a tropical paradise, Koh Tao Heights are for you! Ronin and Dannielle are the perfect hosts with the apartments well situated providing a lovely stroll to the main town via the beach.
Our family of 5 adults had a ball. The infinity pool, videos on demand and comfy rooms were all a delight. Highly recommended.

We have stayed in a pool villa on koh tao before which was great but this villa surpasses anything else. We Had a fantastic stay here. Private pool, beautiful villa and gardens. 5 star service from the owner Ronan and employee dani. Easy walk into sairee either on the beach or along the road. Breakfast was delivered every morning from a local restaurent after you call to order with the mobile provided. Dinner can also be delivered from a variety of restaurents. We ordered in two nights and it was amazing. We were very sad to leave and will be back. Definately the place to stay.
