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...

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...
