Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 7
Welcome to Koh Tao and Villa Kantaraya! Your stay here will be self-catered although the villa is cleaned every day by Nyi and his wife, who live in the grounds, providing security as well as cleaning and garden maintenance. The local rep will collect you from the boat and give any advice regarding diving,restaurants,boat trips,activities etc and help you with almost anything from bike rental to yoga classes! If hiring a moped is not for you then local taxi drivers can arrange cheap deals for journeys to and from the villa.

|Further details indoors|
With a large open plan living area there is plenty of room to relax in the tv area right next to the plunge pool or sit at the kitchen bar or be even more relaxed on Thai cushions with views out to sea or the garden. The bedrooms are air-conditioned whereas the main living areas all have floor to wall doors which, when opened, create a lovely breeze. Take the roll up cushions out on to the sun loungers and doze off listening to the insects and ghekos!
|Further details outdoors|
Sit in the swing seat in the look out with views straight out over Shark Island,Koh Phangan,Koh Samui and the Angthong National Marine Park! Nowhere else gives you such stunning views, amazing sunrises and moonlit evenings. Eagles swoop overhead, monkeys call to each other across the trees,and the crickets' chorus is something to hear at sunset. We have a few large resident ghekos and lots of tiny ones...this is Thailand! Away from the hustle and bustle of Sairee it is tranquil and relaxing, NO WIFI EITHER although there are masses of little cafes all over the island with internet access.
The villa is minutes away from the boat pier and a few minutes more to Sairee beach. There are a few local restaurants dotted around but I strongly recommend hiring motorbikes or quads as it is hot and quite far when walking. The villa is off the main road heading towards Chalok Baan Kao. Take the road towards Aow Luk(all concrete) pass the generators,until a turning on the right just before the brow of the hill. This road is not concrete but is fun! There are some small boulders in the way but nothing a motorbike cannot navigate round. The journey in a 4x4 taxi is more bumpy! The trip is well worth it as you will see!
The nearest way to the sea is a ten minute walk straight down from the villa to Moondance where there is basic accommodation and a small restaurant. There is no sand here but cliffs and rocks. The nearest sandty beach is Aow Luk, 2 mins on a bike, half an hour to walk.but I recommend bikes as it is steep when walking back uphill, and hot!. This is an excellent beach for snorkelling and there are 2 restaurants there.
The South Thailand region
Various boat companies connect Koh Tao with the neighbouring islands and mainland Thailand.
Koh Tao - don't let my description paint the picture for you. Come and see for yourselves!! Numerous websites dedicate themselves to this beautiful island. Dive shops, restaurants and activities are changing and evolving all the time so get up to date information off the web and I recommend travelfish.org for any transport queries.

"Beautiful place to stay on Koh Tao"
We had a wonderful time in the villa with our 3 boys. Loads of space, beautiful rooms and views, great location in a quieter part of the island, but still close to the main hubs. Great recommendations… More
Thankyou for leaving your review and I'm happy to see that the family really enjoyed it. I get wary driving a motorbike around so quadbikes are a brilliant compromise, glad they worked for you too.

"Stunning place but horrible service from owner."
My partner and I travelled there A while ago and experienced a poor experience. We had gotten into a motorcycle accident during this trip and this did not help though. From the start we were told earl… More
I was sorry to see this review as I had already had conversations and emails between myself and the guests and they made it clear that they were happy and wanted to keep staying at the villa despite the spate of powercuts the island was experiencing. Hence on arrival it was impossible to fill the jacuzzi, watch tv, use the fridge, heat the water etc... I would like to think that between myself, my rep Marek and Nyi, we offer a great service to all our customers despite some challenging situations brought about by Island life! My apology was sincere, the price was reduced and I merely pointed out that all things electrically connected will of course be affected by a power cut. We have installed a generator and the lines to the villa are now also more reliable so I hope that these situations will not happen in the future.
