The Luxury Villa Sabai Jai (sleeps 2-8, 2 in extra bed, if you are 2 or 4 persons, please contact us for price information) in Thailand is unique because it succeeds in combining the natural features of the loction with simple and luxury accommodation, high-end modern technology and a level of creative imagination that makes this an extraordinary villa. The villa is completely newly built, finished in december 2012. Livingarea 250sq.m, wooden deck 250sq.m

American breakfast, daily maid service (cleaning, bedding and making breakfast) and pick up / drop off at the pier at arrival / departure is included in the price.

The Villa occupies an exceptional position 35 meters above sea on the edge of a cape with panoramic views over the ocean, the nearby beaches, the surrounding islands and the Marine Park. The view is maximised by the practical layout and innovative design features. The villa is facing south and will treat you to both sunrises and sunsets. This is the perfect hideaway place for those seeking a relaxing retreat.

Bedrooms are in separate houses, all with ensuite bathrooms. The heart of the villa is a large wooden deck with two sitting groups and sunchairs, a sala with a third sitting group and a 14 meter freeform pool with overflow and jacuzzi.

Office and small gym.

Within walking distance to two of the best beaches on the island, Tian Og and Sai Daeng.

We can offer the following activities in the villa on request:

*SPA treatments on our own massage bed

*Restaurant Barracudas chef Ed Jones will come up and cook and serve you an “in villa dinner”, which you choose from his menu

*Thai food can be delivered to the villa, lunch or dinner

*Teaching for diving certificate in our pool in association with ACE Marine

Instead of paying a refundable deposit we require that you leave one of your passports during the whole rental period to our housekeeper. You will get it back at check out after having paid for the minibar and any damages or losses. At check out you pay cash in Thai Baht.

Due to that electricity is very expensive on the island and that some guests use more electricity than others, we have chosen to let 30 kWh/day be included in the rental price. If you consume more than this, we charge 32 THB/kWh. The explanation is that we have no electricity cable from the mainland, therefore the electricity is produced in local diesel gererators. Since we care about our island and the environment we hope that you will help us by not using more electricity than needed.

Please see our website for more information.

Koh Tao

The History Of Koh Tao

Koh Tao, despite its reputation as one of the best islands in the Gulf of Thailand, has only become an acknowledged destination in this century. Prior to this point it was only known to fishermen as a place to repair their nets and shelter from any big storms!!! Then, in the early 1930's Koh Tao was declared a political prison, with some of the original chains and shackles still to be found, until 1947 when the Thai Prime Minister pardoned all the prisoners on the island, who promptly accepted their pardons and returned to families on the mainland!

Within that same year two brothers set sail from Koh Phangan to Koh Tao, which, at the time and with their small boats, was a colossal journey. Upon successfully reaching Koh Tao they rewarded themselves with a healthy chunk of land, Sairee Beach, and after bringing their families over began to cultivate the soil. Koh Tao's first family had arrived.

With only limited infrastructure remaining from the days as a prison, the family set about harvesting coconuts, growing vegetables, and fishing. Slowly the potential of Koh Tao was revealed, the lush island grew and abundance of everything planted on it, and the water surrounding it contained a myriad of marine life, enabling a healthy trade between friends and family who still remained on Koh Phangan!!! As the potential of Koh Tao was realized, so too grew the population, and thus the amenities available as well as the ease of Koh Tao travel.

Then, In the 1980's backpackers started exploring the Gulf of Thailand, reaching Koh Samui and Koh Phangan in growing numbers. As a result bigger, faster and safer ferries arrived to transport them. With these initial backpacking pioneers came an interest in the other surrounding islands, principally Koh Tao.

One of these first pioneers was an Italian man who began exploiting the amazing diving conditions and brought divers from Koh Samui for an overnight diving safari to Koh Tao. He discovered Red Rock, White Rock and Green Rock, which he named after the colors on the Italian flag, and so created the first dive shop on Koh Tao.

In recent years the islands reputation as one of a quiet tropical paradise and one of the best islands in the Gulf of Thailand has spread. Word of its diverse marine life & coral reefs made Koh Tao quickly become one of Thailand's major diving destinations attracting beginners & professionals alike. And the local businesses have done well to cater to the ever-changing needs of the new arrivals in Koh Tao, catering for all budgets and requirements.


Most people come to Koh Tao for diving but that doesn´t mean there is nothing elso to do.

Except for diving you can:

• Take a boat around the island and visit the different beaches. Snorkel and swim with black tip sharks, visit unforgettable water worlds, stop at any of the countless secluded beaches. This is the best way of seeing real Koh Tao! Highly recommended!

• Fishing expeditions with equipment provided and a professional advisor to guide you.

• Visit the marine park

• Visit the paradise island Nang Yuan

• Rent a motorbike or ATV and explore the island

• Muay Thai (Thai boxing)

• Rock Climbing

• Flying trapeze

• Snorkeling

• Kayaking

• Hiking

• Bowling and mini golf

• Shopping

• Thai Massage

• Yoga

• Thai cooking courses

Although the island is small and remote, there are a lot of restaurants around the island, most of them in the main villages where you can also find spas, diving schools and a laid back night life. See ”links” to find some of the places.

We do recommend you to discover this beautiful island with all its small secluded beaches and view points. There are different ways of getting around the island, motorbike, ATV and taxi. Since the island has steep hills you need to be a good driver if you rent a motorbike. If not, we recommend you to rent 4-wheel drive ATV:s. Regarding renting we have all the information you need in our binder in the villa/main house.

Nice to hear that you feel the same way as we do about our villa. We have been traveling for 20 years in Asia and for 5 years we were looking for a plot for building, before we finally found this perfect place to build our dreamhouse.

"Perfect place to have amazing chill out holiday"

Waren bereits öfters auf Koh Tao, dieses mal haben wir die Villa Sabai Jai uns ausgesucht und es war absolut die richtige Wahl.
Im Gegensatz zu anderen Locations in Sairee Beach liegt die Villa ganz im Süden uns "relativ" abgelegen. Es gibt keinerlei extremen Geräuschquellen wie in Sairee und man kann die Natur um einen herum absolut genießen. Von der rießiegen Terasse hat man einen ungebrochnen Ausblick bis nach Koh Phangan und einen 180 Grad view auf zwei absolut fantaqstische Sandstrände. Alle schöne Sandstrände sind innerhalb von 15 min mit dem Motorrad zu erreichen. Daher hat die Villa meiner Meinung nach die Perfekte Lage.
Das andauerende Meeresrauschen in der Villa ist einfach nur fantastisch. Da die Villa auf einer Klippe liegt hat man die ganze Zeit dieses fantastische Rauschen.
Die Ausstattung der Villa ist sehr luxuriös und man bekommt definitiv wofür man bezahlt. Duschen mit Meerblick, rießige Betten mit Meerblick, einen sehr großen privaten Pool mit fantastischem Meerblick, eine gutausgestattee Küche, ein rießiegen TV mit allen möglichen Programmen, eine schöne Terasse mit vielen Sitzmöglichkeiten. Abends ist der Sternenhimmel von der Villa einfach nur atemraubend.
Es gibt eine sehr nette Haushälterin Lek die die Villa im wirklich sauber hält, von daher war alles gegeben.
Alles in allem hat es genau unsere Erwartung getroffen und wir hatten wirklich eine wunderbare Zeit. Man kann dort wirklich abschalten und eigentlich will man die Villa während des Aufenhalts nicht mehr verlassen. Wir können die Villa Sabaj Jai jedem nur empfehlen.

So glad you had a good time at Villa Sabai Jai. We chose this plot a bit away from everything, but the main villages still being reachable within 10 minutes. The best of two worlds!

"The closest place to paradise on earth!"

Wow! Have used this service for the first time this year, and came across this amazing villa. Was nervous at first as there were limited (no) reviews to reference, but conversations with Bob on the phone gave me confidence this was worth any risk......and there was none in retrospect. The villa is exactly as advertised and everything we hoped it would be. Won't repeat all factual info already available, but following maybe useful. Transfer from pier to villa by 'Mr Bear' was great. Lek, the onside maid is very helpful and discreet when going about her daily duties. Snorkelling off cliffs is fantastic. Be aware that this place is perfect for getting away from it all, and whilst there are restaurants in the vicinity, getting to them or shops for supplies on foot is challenging due to inclines, so hiring scooters is a bit of a necessity in our opinion. Eagle View (the closest) is v authentic and you feel you are eating in the owners front room (actually I think you are) but is our favourite place! Only 3 days left to enjoy what is, until Gods Kingdom comes, the closest place to paradise on earth!
Family Grace

Glad that reality lived up to your expectations. Also glad that you visited the local small home restaurant Eagle View, a bit of real Thailand.

"Bästa stället!"

Efter att ha besökt många ställen i Asien så kom vi till Koh Tao, som vi förälskade oss i helt och hållet. Litet, lugnt och paradisiskt men ändå med puls och ett laidback nattliv nere på stranden i Sairee. Många barer med sittplatser på dynor direkt på stranden och enkla ljuslyktor förhöjer stämningen. Sairee är platsen att följa solnedgången med en drink i handen!
Snorklingen är fantastisk, en dag hyrde vi en longtailbåt och åkte runt ön och gjorde strand och snorklingsstopp där vi ville. En annan dag fick vi tips om en aktivitet att snorkla på kvällen med ultravioletta ficklampor, helt otroligt när korallerna fick regnbågens alla färger! Nästa gång blir det definitivt dykcertifikat.
Huset är sanslöst och känslan av att komma hit efter en dag full med aktiviteter är oslagbar. Fri utsikt över hav och öar, härlig bris och en skön pool att hoppa i. Stora ytor designade in till minsta detalj ger en ombonad och lyxig känsla. Inga problem att stanna här hela dagen. Längtar tillbaka!

Happy you loved our house!
A trip around the island by longtail boat is a must, if the weather allows it. A good way of visiting all the small secluded beaches around the island.
