“Spectacular views in a personal and stylish setting”
Reviewed 14 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

Villa is set 150 steps above the sea and has one of the most spectacular views over the ocean, including unobstructed sunrise from the sea and sunset behind a palm covered hill on rocky Koh Tao. Villa is equipped as a home and is best suited for a "stay in" holiday with everything within hand reach: kitchen for home cooking, private pool for cooling from the afternoon sun on the terrance and tropical snorkling off the granite rocks directly underneath the house. The owners have spend years on the island, so have found the best local services & suppliers from taxi and massage to chef-at-home dining. The island is isolated from mass tourism (no airfield, only access with a 2h catamaran trip from the mainland in rough seas), but has plenty of action from world class scuba and free diving, sailing and hiking. Prices are twice the mainland, but this is the cost of exclusivity. Hedge by bring your own wine and western produce if you plan to fine-dine. Fish, fruit and veggies are wonderful and fresh, but meat is frozen.

Villa is not well suited for under 3s, since gaps in the hand rail are wide, pool in unprotected and access is rocky and hilly.

Nice to hear that you feel the same way as we do about our villa. We have been traveling for 20 years in Asia and for 5 years we were looking for a plot for building, before we finally found this perfect place to build our dreamhouse.

“Amazing Villa in Koh Tao”
Reviewed 3 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We stayed at Villa Sabai Jai over Christmas & New Years, and had the most wonderful time. The villa is modern & well-maintained, and true to the photos posted by the owner on the website! The villa for us (2 families with 1 teenager & 3 kids total) was so much better than staying at any 5 star hotel nearby. The owner was very responsive to our questions over email & was very easy to deal with. There is a housekeeper who lives on site & she made us breakfast & did our beds every morning. The pool was cleaned out almost every day so by the time we came home, it was pristine! The sonos sounds system was over 10,000 songs and we enjoyed playing DJs during our stay...

I would highly recommend this place. Just a few things to keep in mind:
Located in the southern end of the island perched on a cliff across from Shark Island, it is situated in the quiet Cape Shark Villas community (from what I can tell, most neighbors are Northern Europeans). You will pass 2 five-star resorts - Haad Tian & Jamahkiri - on your way up to the villa. You can walk down to the rocks below via the staircase (watch out for the red ants & millipedes), but I don't recommend it with kids. The nearest swimming beach (Sae Daeng) is a good 15-20 minute walk away with kids up & down the hills - not an easy walk but we did it! To get around the island, we relied on the trusty villa taxi driver Mr. Bear who was very pleasant & acted as our guide. You can also rent scooters at the villa or other vehicles in town. All in all, we are happy with the location which is tucked away so we have our peace when we came back from a day at the beach. The view from the villa was just beautiful & breath taking! Do keep in mind that the villa gets quite windy throughout the day as it is high on a cliff.

We also visited Freedom Beach, Koh Nangyuan & Sairee Beach at the far end (which was surprisingly nice for small kids given the fine white sand & shallow water). Unfortunately due to strong winds when we were there, we did not get a chance to visit the east side of the island which I am sure is also very nice.

“Perfect Relaxing value for money accommadation”
Reviewed 16 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

My Partner and I was made very welcome when greeted by the staff of this beautiful villa.
This was a faultless holiday experience. As much as we wanted to see the rest of the beautiful island of Koh Tao We both found it hard to leave the villa.
The stunning views and the large infinity swimming pool kept us mesmerised.
We will definitely recommend this villa to our friends and family.
Thailand, Koh Tao , Villa Sabai .... AMAZING !

Glad that reality lived up to your expectations. Also glad that you visited the local small home restaurant Eagle View, a bit of real Thailand.
