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...

Stunning villa!

The villa and views are absolutely stunning. Being there is one of the most exiting experince we ever had. IP/Georgia

An awesome place to stay

Gecco Villa The villa lived up to my expectations, which were high, as I took my extended family from Bangkok there for a weekend getaway. Upstairs is the main bedroom with ensuite which is separated by lockable door from a second bedroom / lounge room type area with TV. The second bedroom has it’s own bathroom. Downstairs is another bedroom with bathroom, accessed via external stairs. The kitchen is in-between the top floor main bedroom and the second bedroom / living area. It is a bit on the small side to do too much serious cooking, but more than enough if you want to cook something using the benchtop (we went to the village for dinner both nights and used the kitchen for breakfast / lunch). Microwave, toaster and kettle are included. Mini-bar items are not extensive but enough to keep you going until you get stocked up. The fridge / freezer is full-size. The upstairs bedrooms open up on to a outdoor decking area where a dinner / breakfast table and lounge are are located. From this area the pool and several banana lounges can be accessed. An outdoor shower is also provided. Wifi strength is limited due to the capacity available to the island, but communications via mobile broadband / cell phone work fine. The pool is not as big as the one at the Eagle Villa, but it was more than big enough for cooling off and having a bit of fun. There is also a community pier down at the water’s edge that can be accessed from the villa via road and steps and takes...

Serenity meets luxury!

We just finished an amazing holiday in Villa Sabai Jai and would HIGHLY recommend it to anyone looking to vacation on Ko Tao! The house is everything it is pictured and more. The room layout is perfect for couples to have their privacy, while still providing lots of space to spend time as a group. It is impeccably maintained, including hotel equivalent room service for bedrooms, and the views are spectacular…waking every morning to a stunning sunrise view as well as beautiful sunsets every evening from our deck was a bonus. The home is situated on a cliff overlooking the sea providing a serene atmosphere and lovely breezes. Each room is bright, and airy, and uniquely designed to reflect Thai island life. The main house has a great sound system to link to to play your favorite music, and a well appointed kitchen. The infinity pool is spotlessly maintained daily and a great size for swimming and cooling off, and surrounded by ample deck space. We spent lots of time there! Bob and Asa are wonderful hosts and are there to answer questions and provide assistance from the time you book until you return home…they even helped us retrieve a piece of luggage lost by the airline and aided it’s arrival to the house (above and beyond!). They had scooters ready and waiting at the house for us to rent which made it so hassle free. The island is a tropical paradise with lots of beaches and coves to explore…and the home provides the perfect space to celebrate it’s beauty. We could not have asked for more…it was the...

Fantastic villa with superb location

This villa is amazing. It has three separate buildings. One with a bedroom and ensuite bathroom ocean view and access to The pool, a main house with living room and fully equipped Kitchen and  two more bedrooms. The pool is fantastic, The most beautiful we ever had. The view from The villa is even better than The pictures. Staff is very helpful and nice. The owners Bob and Åsa really want you to enjoy your stay. This is paradise. You will never regret a stay here. AG/Sweden...

Beyond amazing!

“Our entire experience at Sabai Jai was faultless from the moment we arrived until the moment we left!! Greeted by the lovely Wawa and Phyu our staff whose attention to detail was immaculate and smiling happy faces very pleasant each day as they went about cooking us fabulous breakfasts which included host Asa’s special homemade yoghurt!! Delicious!! Our hosts Bob and Asa were delightful. Incredibly hospitable and went beyond expected in making us feel welcome and at home. Their restaurant recommendations on the island were great and we shared a lovely evening at one of their favourite spots. The villa itself was beyond amazing,the views even more spectacular than the photos and the tasteful attention to detail and use of beautiful recycled timber was truly inspiring. We had the opportunity to view the two other villas and again were very impressed at the level of attention to understated design quality. Bob and Asa have succeeded in creating a high end luxury level of private accommodation that over 30 years of coming here we had yet to find! A true gem!! We will be returning again and again!!Our children were able to enjoy snorkelling just below the villa and spotting turtles and sharks and an array of fabulous fish varieties. There was a kayak at our disposal and scooters to get in to Mae Haad and Sairee restaurants. All in all a 10 out of 10!!!!”...

Amazing Views and A BEAUTIFUL Villa!!!

We arrived on Ko Tao and we’re picked up and taken up the cliff side to the stunning Gecco Villa!! We walked in and our jaws dropped. The view was amazing with the infinity pool looking over the ocean. We were more than pleased with our stay and how beautiful the property was. We would return in a heart beat and tell everyone that is looking to stay in Ko Tao to stay at the Gecco Villa or the Eagle Villa. We got to see the Eagle and looked even more amazing!!!!...

Eagle Villa is simply stunning!

We were welcomed by Bobs two lovely house keepers and given a tour of the property which words cannot describe. Eagle Villa is simply stunning. The view is beautiful and the decor and design is mind blowing. We were left so much information regarding restaurants, sites to see and given contact information for private boats and the lovely Mr Bear our taxi driver. Bob was always extremely responsive if we had queries and very helpful. I cannot recommend this villa enough!! We hope to come back!...

Better than advertised, a true holiday get away!!

I really can’t put into words… but I’ll give some details. First, we had zero issues, only a small disconnect in the wifi, but come on, you’re on a small island so the service is great considering! The staff are true professionals & a joy to have around. The owners were on site & made a few stops to check on the overall stay, which only added to the more then gracious hosts! Add more goodies to the “mini-bar” and my tab would have been double, but it’s sooo nice to have a fully stocked mini bar w snacks, that never goes empty, haha! All the suggested food & transportation options are too easy. They even provided us a cell phone while staying there, which was a great option to have. If I return to Thailand, you better believe I’ll return here!! DB/...

Holiday thai

Fantastic place villa with all the comforts and with a beautiful view. The service and hospitality are excellent. Thanks to all this I spent a memorable week. MC/Scotland

A gem in paradise!

We have spent 5 nights in this beautiful villa and we have enjoyed every single moment in it (even when it rained!) The pros: – The views. Amazing panoramic views from every corner of the villa (even the shower) – The decoration. Very well presented and homey feeling. You can see there is attention to every detail and a very nice taste. – The pool. If you have seen the photos, wait until you are swimming in it under a clear sky at night. – Great sound system to enjoy your music whether you are in the house or in the pool. – Entertainment: collection of films (great if it is raining outside), a guitar (it made my day), cards, jenga, etc. You won’t get bored. – You can get a massage by the pool, looking at the sea (an experience I cannot recommend enough). – Lovely breakfast prepared by Wa Wa and Lek – Bob is a fantastic host. He made sure we had all we needed and made our stay very pleasant. – No mosquitos!! – No neighbours overlooking. The Cons – Difficult roads to get to and from the villa to town. If you are brave enough to use a moped, you will save a lot of money, as taxis charge a ludicrous amount of money per journey (compared to Thai standards). – Perhaps not the safest place to go young children. Overall, it is a fantastic place to relax and indulge yourself and my wife and I are looking forward to coming back in the future. EDA /...
