Villa Sabai Jai Gecco Pool Villa is situated 35 meters high up on a cliff with panoramic view over the sea and will treat you with wonderful sunset. Sabai means ”laid back”, ”easy going”, ”peaceful feeling”. Sabai jai literally means ”well heart”, and this is the feeling we wish you to get when you visit our luxury pool villas. This the Thai’s use to express contentment, happiness or gratitude. This exclusive villa is built with white concrete walls, thatched roofs and large glass openings towards the sea. The Gecco Pool villa is perfect for families with small children since there is a connecting door between the bedrooms on deck. Also for teenagers that sometimes like to stay away on their own (lower room). Gecco Villa comes with four double bedrooms on two levels, all with ensuite bathrooms. All rooms come with comfortable king size beds, one of the bedrooms also with a sofa in front of the large 50″TV. On the lower floor one of the bedrooms has built in natural stones, which makes the room very special. There is a kitchen for smaller cooking with tableware for 8 persons, the kitchen is part of bedroom 1. In the outside sand stone deck area you will find a large round teak dining table and a rattan sofa group under roof as well as sun beds by the 6 x 2,5 m infinity pool. There is also an outdoor shower that can be used before and after swimming in the pool. Here you can relax day and evening. The villa has a size of 185 sqm inside and outside. Gecco pool villa is personally decorated with carefully selected items in thai style in order to give a good, peaceful and relaxed feeling. There are two common bathing piers by the sea in the area. This is also one of the best places on the island with a chance to see both black tip reef sharks (harmless) and turtles. Free pick up at Koh Tao Pier on arrival and departure. Please let us know of arrival time, from where you are traveling and ferry company minimum 3 days before arrival. Our housekeeper will meet you at the villa. Please note that taxis are more expensive on the island than on the mainland. Our housekeeper will make your beds and clean the house every day. Except for this it´s a self-catering household. If you are 2 persons your will have access to 1 bedroom, 3-4 persons you get 2 bedrooms, 5-6 persons you get 3 bedrooms and 7-8 persons you get 4 bedrooms. The bedrooms not used will be locked. You will have the property to yourselves. The weather on Koh Tao can change in a minute, we therefore ask you not to leave cushions outside and always close windows when leaving the villa. To avoid ants and other displeasant animals, make sure to pack any left overs in the fridge and clean the kitchen after your meals. On the lower floor in Turtle Villa there is a separate part which has a massage room with two massage beds that can be used by guests staying in both Turtle and Gecco Villas. Services available in the villa on request (at extra cost): - SPA treatments on our own massage bed (on lower floor in Turtle Villa) - Thai food, pizza, hamburger, pasta, salad etc can be delivered to the villa, breakfast, lunch or dinner Breakfast can be ordered and delivered to the villa.

You will get it back at check out after having paid for the minibar and any damages or losses. At check out you pay cash in Thai Baht. Our community consists of around 20 private villas. Our guests come here to relax and take it easy with friends and family and therefore the community has rules. We do not accept loud music parties or any other disturbances that may affect your neighbors. Please keep the volume of noise at a minimum, especially after 10 pm. Don´t misunderstand us, we want you to enjoy yourselves but in a respectful way like in any other hotel area. If you are more persons at check in than you have booked for, you will not be able to check in. No persons except for those registered are allowed in the villa.More

About the neighbourhood
Activites Most people come to Koh Tao for diving but that doesn´t mean there is nothing elso to do. Except for diving you can: • Take a boat around the island and visit the different beaches. Snorkel and swim with black tip sharks, visit unforgettable water worlds, stop at any of the countless secluded beaches. This is the best way of seeing real Koh Tao! Highly recommended! • Fishing expeditions with equipment provided and a professional advisor to guide you. • Visit the marine park • Visit the paradise island Nang Yuan • Rent a motorbike and explore the island • Muay Thai (Thai boxing) • Rock Climbing • Flying trapeze • Snorkeling • Kayaking • Hiking • mini golf • Shopping • Thai Massage • Yoga • Thai cooking courses Although the i...
