This is a recently completed modern villa set in tranquil, jungle clad hills above Sairee Beach. This superb location gives you the best of both worlds - peace and isolation and easy access to Koh Tao's tourist hot spot - Sairee Beach - where there is a huge variety of bars, restaurants and clubs to suit all tastes. On a scooter or ATV, it takes less than 5 minutes to reach the beach, or a leisurely stroll takes about 20 mins.
Set in just under an acre of grounds, the surrounding jungle is dotted with banana, mango, papaya and coconut trees and there is ample opportunity for a jungle trek to see some of Koh Tao that many visitors don't get to see. Then from the vantage point provided by the terraces (about 80m above sea level), you can witness the almost daily spectacle of the sea eagles cavorting in the skies above Star Villa and watch the sun settle down behind the mountains on the mainland some 70km distant. Then enjoy balmy evenings playing pool or a board game and listen to the daytime sounds of the tropical jungle become even more evocative at night. Turn off the lights, lie back and watch the splendour of the universe wheel across the night sky - on a good night, when the moon is new, you can see shooting stars and even the odd satellite pass over.
Behind KTSV is a Buddhist temple, preserved as a retreat for monks on strict sabbatical from around Thailand and Myanmar. It is even possible to climb the rock behind the Villa (from the temple side) to see a fantastic 360 degree panorama of the island.
At Koh Tao Star Villa we are very proud of the steps that we have taken, and continue to take, to make our Villa as environmentally friendly as possible: we use natural gas to power our hot water system - it is far, far more efficient and much cleaner than the electricity produced on the island; we are completely self sufficient for water - so, not only do we not draw on the very limited ground water supply of the island, but we reduce the amount of run-off and surface erosion that takes place; our septic tank ensures that nothing nasty gets pumped into the ground; whilst our grey water gets used to water the garden. We look forward to the day when all the hotels and resorts on Koh Tao can boast of their 'eco-credentials'.
Famous for its SCUBA diving, Koh Tao now boasts a range of other activities for the young at heart. From rock climbing and free diving to ten-pin bowling and mini golf, there is something to fill every minute of your day if you want to, or should rather just relax, there are many tranquil bays and beaches to enjoy. And at night you can party as hard as you like till the early hours, or not... the choice
And whatever your required activity level is, Koh Tao Star Villa provides you with some of the best accommodation the island has to offer. The upper floor is a huge penthouse apartment with two bedrooms and two bathrooms whilst the level below is made up of two self-contained one bedroom apartments with en-suite bathrooms and spacious living rooms. So you can stay with your family and friends but you will not have to live hand-in-glove with them all the time.
