Amazing breathtaking villa!

This villa is amazing and it will take your breath away! We (4 friends) had a fantastic stay. From placing the booking till we left we felt very welcome and Bob was helpful whenever we had any questions. The helper (Wawa) at the villa is also very kind. There are brochures in the villa with recommendations for restaurants, beaches and attractions. We recommend to do a tour around the island on scooters, which can be rented at the villa, but be aware that the terrain can be challenging to drive in (there are quite some steep hills) but this only makes the drive more exciting. The villa is a great place to relax and it really stands out from the rest of the island. The rooms are very nice and the sundeck is absolutely fantastic. We do hope to back again one day.

Wonderful villa with a breathtaking view

We stayed in this villa with 2 families (4 adults & 5 teenagers) and had a great time. The house is beautifully decorated and the view from the terrace (and from the beds!) is absolutely stunning. Housekeepers Wawa and Phyu are fantastic. Very friendly & attentive! The only disadvantage I can think of is the remote location of the villa, but there is a phone available for local phone calls (taxi, food delivery) which helps cope with that. The walk to Sai Daeng Beach is doable and definitely worth the effort. Nice beach for snorkling. We didn’t use the piers close to the villa , because with a rough sea getting in & out of the water here can be quite dangerous. We would also recommend the massage in the private massage room available at the villa. Very relaxing! Gecco Villa,...

Fantastic Villa

Our family of 5 stayed for a week in Gecco Villa to scuba dive and snorkel. The Villa is very good and comfortable inside and out. There is a magnificent view down to the sea where we snorkelled and saw many sharks. The staff are lovely and very helpful and the villa is always clean. To get into town you will need a taxi or use the motor bikes for rent. There are some very steep little hills so motor biking is not for the feint hearted. Myself and my son enjoyed getting around the Island on bikes. We scuba dived with master Divers who are recommended by the owner and I would recommend them also. We used Master Divers the year before also in Koh Tao. Auw Leuk beach is a gem with a coral reef where you can snorkel with all sorts of marine life. Koh Tao has become a favourite destination of ours over the years and Gecco Villa has helped keep it that way....

Wonderful

Stayed in Villa Sabaijai “Gecko villa” for five days in June. When we got to koh tao, the taxi driver Mr. Bear was there to pick us up. Very friendly and helpfull. The freindly and smiling housekeepers was there to welcome us when we arrived the villa, and served fresh juice while showing us the villa and the folders wich is made out of the owners own experiences, and has a lot of usefull information. The villa is absolutely amazing. The pool and the balcony was bigger than we thought, and the view is incredibly beautiful. The pictures does NOT Lie. We also like the personality of the villas and Its easy to see the owners Bob and Åsa’s passion for the place. I think the location is good, because Its in a quiet area, and only a 10 minutes drive in taxi or motorbike to the harbour, and the streets with shops and restaurants. But Maybe not so good for older People because of the steep roads. The housekeepers was cleaning the rooms and balcony everyday, and if we have Any questions or needs we could allways call them at anytime. The pool was also cleaned everyday. We Hope that we could spend our holiday in Villa Sabaijai again in the nearest future. We would love to Come back again....

Amazing Villa – Will return!

My wife and I were married on Koh Tao in May 2016. We had a party of 30 guests with us from Australia and we decided to rent two of the Villas included in the Villa Sabai Jai portfolio, The Gekko and The Turtle Villa. These villas made the trip fantastic. Bob, the owner of the villas and his wife Asa were absolutely brilliant to deal with. 1st class communication and a warm approach to there guests. We rented both the villas for a week, all our friends were totally blown away by the area. We were lucky enough that Bob and his wife were on the island during our stay, they have the best restaurant recommendations and great local knowledge of the island. The service from the maids in the villas, room layouts, views and pools were all fantastic. I could not recommend these villas enough, the photos although fantastic do not do them justice. Highly recommended! Turtle and Gecco Villas,...

Delightfully dreamy….Dangerously close to never going home

Undoubtedly the most beautiful place to rejuvenate and relax on beautiful Koh Tao island. Bob and Asa’s villas are perched on the cliff side with your very own infinity pool as your viewing platform. Just a warning, your private pool has an uninterrupted view of the great blue ocean and it serves up the most inspiring sunsets day after day…you may never want to leave!! My partner and I stayed in Gecko the first week (with a two other couples) and naturally we found ourselves ‘at home’. I think the combination of a comfortable bed and the stunning architecture had it’s influence. Inevitably, we extended our stay and placed ourselves in Turtle Villa for another week. Fancy that, we thought, staying on turtle island, in turtle villa and if you do stay here you might just find the third link to this chain…you will have to find out for yourselves. It is ideally placed out of the hustle and bustle of town…but not so far that you can’t jump on your motor bike or take a taxi into town for some of the best meals you can encounter on the islands in Thailand. Bob and Asa themselves are very down to earth people and will ensure your stay is just as you want it to be… I cannot recommend this place enough for your island retreat.

Paradise……

I stayed at Villa Sabai Jai as part of a large group to celebrate a friends wedding and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The staff were so attentive and always willing to assist in anyway. The owner Bob and his wife were very welcoming and continued to ensure we had a comfortable stay through out. The Villa itself is simply spectacular and it was very hard to leave.

Kaunis mukava villa!

Kohteen kuvaus oli erittäin osuva, naapurusto rauhallinen ja mukava. Koimme itsemme hyvin tervetulleeksi Gecco Villaan! JJ / Finland

Amazing villa!

We had an amazing time in Gecco Villa, everything was just perfect! I really recommend this amazing villa to anyone for a true magical vacation. Thank you Bob and Pyhu for everything, I wish we will meet again soon 🙂 AT/Israel...

Super toll!

Wir waren schon zum zweiten mal in dieser Villa mit einem riesigen Pool und einem Frosch und Kaulquappen Teich wo eine kleine steinbrücke hinüber Fürth. Und wir haben einen super schönen Ausblick aufs Meer.👍👍👍😀 Eagle Villa, JT/Germany

Best villa experience in Thailand by far

I already have advertised this Villa to all of my friends. With this recommendation I can’t go wrong. It’s not easiest to reach but Mr. Bear’s taxi recommended and arranged by the villa management will take you anywhere you want to go, when ever you want. Restaurants are not exactly around the corner but you can order in from several places with very reasonable price. For the dinner let Mr. Bear drive you to one if the several restaurants recommended in the villa book. The pool and the view are impressive. Biggest private pool we have had and we have been in around 10 different villas around Thailand. And the view… It will be hard to get better one. Check the villa’s pictures. They don’t lie....

Traumhafte Tage im Paradies

Wir wollten für ein paar Tage der tristen Winterzeit in Deutschland entfliehen und haben dafür in der Villa Sabai Jai (Eagle Villa) die perfekte Unterkunft gefunden. Die Begeisterung der vorausgegangenen Rezessionen können wir zu 100% nachvollziehen. Die Anlage ist wirklich wunderschön und sehr luxuriös. Es gibt viele liebevolle Details in der Architektur wie in der Einrichtung zu entdecken, die die Villa zu etwas ganz Besonderem machen. Die großartigen Zimmer, der Pool, die schier endlose Aussicht über das Meer, der funkelnde Sternenhimmel, das Rauschen der Brandung, … – die Villa ist bei Tag und Nacht einfach traumhaft. Wawa und Phyo sorgen sich toll um die Gäste, so dass man die Villa nicht verlassen braucht und ohnehin nicht verlassen will. 😉 Dabei sind sie jedoch stets zurückhaltend und kaum sichtbar. Der Kühlschrank ist immer gut gefüllt mit Getränken aller Art zu moderaten Preisen. Auch um unsere Sonderwünsche (z.B: Tonic Water und Limetten) hat Wawa sich prompt gekümmert. Im Haus gibt es einen Ordner mit Speisekarten von Restaurants, die auch in die Villa liefern. Die Bestellungen hat Wawa für uns aufgegeben und die Lieferung auch entgegen genommen, so dass wir faul in der Sonne liegen konnten, bis das Essen da war. 😉 Auch die technische Ausstattung wie das Musiksystem (Sonos drinnen und draußen – sogar mit Spotify account), Wifi, Großbildfernseher, beeindruckendes Lichtkonzept, alle erdenklichen Küchengeräte,..) ist hervorragend. Wir haben allerdings angesichts des großartigen Wetters die TV-Geräte nie eingeschaltet. 🙂 Die Kommunikation mit Bob, dem Eigentümer, war von Anfang an perfekt. Er hat auf all unsere Fragen super freundlich, prompt, zuverlässig und ausführlich geantwortet und uns tolle Tipps zur Anreise und zur Insel...
