The villa consists of a main house (sitting / dining / kitchen) and four double bedrooms with king size beds and ensuite bathrooms, all in separate buildings.

A winding road takes you to the entrance of the villa where you will continue across a lotus pond and into the heart of the property which is a wooden deck combining the different houses and the infinity pool in front of the buildings. The free shaped pool is turquoise tiled and has owerflow which makes it look like it´s part of the sea. On the side of the main house is an outdoor shower, which can be used before and after swimming. Another lotus pond is forming the edge of the deck towards the east. On the deck you will find two sitting areas and sun chairs. To reach the outer deck and sala, which has a third sitting group, you have to cross a small bridge over the pool.

From the sala, which also has rain and wind shelter, you have an exceptional view over the ocean, nearby islands and beaches. From the deck there is a private staircase down to the sea. You just enter the water and you are on the coral reef swimming around among beautiful fish. Two of the best beaches on the island, Tian Og and Sai Daeng, are situated on each side of the cape. You can swim, snorkel or walk to these nearby beaches for lunch, dinner or maybe a drink.

Sabai means ”laid back”, ”easy going”, ”peaceful feeling”. Sabai jai literally means ”well heart”, and this is the feeling you get when you visit this villa. This the Thai's use to express contentment, happiness or gratitude.

Location description from owner

The Surat Thani Province region

The History Of Koh TaoKoh 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

Koh Tao

Activites

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.

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.

“Perfect place to have amazing chill out holiday”

Reviewed 28 May 2013

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!”

Reviewed 9 May 2013

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 England

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!”

Reviewed 27 Apr 2013

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.

“Vår vistelse överträffade alla förväntningar”

Reviewed 15 Apr 2013

Vår vistelse på Villa Sabai Jai i februari överträffade alla förväntningar ! Inredningen i husen var vacker, välplanerad och hade många fina detaljer. Sängarna var fantastiskt sköna och de stora badrummen med alla bekvämligheter var en fröjd att beträda.  Alla rum hade stora glasväggar som gjorde att man inte missade något av den magnifika utsikten. Dessa kunde även öppnas helt, vilket gjorde att man fick känslan av ett uterum. På den stora altanen fanns många sittgrupper och solstolar vid poolen. Trots att det fanns andra hus i närheten var det ingen insyn och man upplevde total avskildhet. Dessutom var det lugnt och tyst dag som natt vilket är ovanligt i länder i Asien.  En fördel var också att det fläktade skönt hela tiden, vilket gjorde att vi kunde spendera mycket tid vid poolen utan att få värmeslag. Det fanns två fina stränder i närheten på gångavstånd. Jag besökte båda och simmade i det varma havet, dock var det skönast att "bara vara" hemma på villa Sabai. För att ta sig till shopping, restauranger och nöjen krävs moped eller bil. Det är inte långt att åka men det är en mängd branta backar att parera. Det finns mycket att handla och priserna är ungefär som de på Koh Samui. Restaurangutbudet är stort, ofta till mycket förmånliga priser. Vi handlade hem frukt och grönsaker samt köpte hämtmat så vi kunde vara på hemmaplan och äta i lugn och ro.  Varje dag städades rummen och vi fick välja frukost som tillagades och serverades av deras maid Lek. Ser redan fram emot att få komma tillbaka till detta vackra paradis. Anna Agnälv Sweden

Thank you Anna for your fine words about our villa. We are very happy that your stay was even better than you had imagined! Welcome again!
