This exclusive villa is built with white concrete walls, thatched roofs and large glass openings towards the sea. The Villa was finished in April 2015.

The Gecco Pool villa is perfect for families with small children since there is a connecting door between the bedrooms on deck floor as well as on lower floor. Also for teenagers that sometimes like to stay away on their own (lower room) or for four couples.

Gecco Villa comes with four double bedrooms on two levels, two of them with ensuite bathrooms and two sharing one bathroom. All rooms come with comfortable king size beds, one of the bedrooms also with a sofa in front of the large 50″TV. On the lower floor one of the bedrooms and the bathroom have built in natural stones, which make the rooms very special. There is a kitchen for smaller cooking with tableware for 8 persons, the kitchen is part of bedroom 1. In the outside sand stone deck area you will find a large round teak dining table and a rattan sofa group under roof as well as sun beds by the 6 x 2,5 m infinity pool. There is also an outdoor shower that can be used before and after swimming in the pool. Here you can relax day and evening. The villa has a size of 185 sqm inside and outside.

The Gecco pool villa is personally decorated with carefully selected items in thai style in order to give a good, peaceful and relaxed feeling.

There are two common bathing piers by the sea in the area. This is also one of the best places on the island with a chance to see both black tip reef sharks (harmless) and turtles.

Our housekeeper will make your beds and clean the house every day. Except for this it´s a self-catering household.

Gecco Villa can be rented separately or together with Turtle Villa, max 14 persons. Please get in contact and we will give you more info.

On the lower floor in Turtle Villa there is a separate part which has a massage room with two massage beds that can be used by guests staying in both Turtle and Gecco Villas.

Free pick up at Koh Tao Pier on arrival and departure. Please let us know of arrival time and ferry company minimum 3 days before arrival. Our housekeeper will meet you at the villa.

Please note that taxis are more expensive on the islands than on the mainland.

The weather on Koh Tao can change in a minute, we therefore ask you not to leave cushions outside and always close windows and doors when leaving the villa.

In our community we spray against mosquitos, however we recommend you to keep doors to bedrooms closed at sunset when they are mostly active. Also recommend you to use mosquito repellent and cover your body in the evening.

To avoid ants and other displeasant animals, make sure to pack any left overs in the fridge and clean the kitchen after your meals.

Services available in the villa on request (at extra cost):

- SPA treatments on our own massage bed (on lower floor in Turtle Villa)

- Private yoga, pilates, aquagym and bodysculpt lessons at the villa

- Thai food, pizza, hamburger, pasta, salad etc can be delivered to the villa, breakfast, lunch or dinner

- Education for diving certificates with Master Divers can be arranged partly in the villa.

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.

Our community consists of around 20 private villas. Our guests come here to relax and take it easy with friends and family and therefore the community has rules. We do not accept loud music or wild parties or any other disturbances that may affect your neighbors. Please keep the volume of noise at a minimum after 10 pm. Don´t misunderstand us, we want you to enjoy yourselves but in a respectful way like anywhere else, but if you are looking for an accommodation for having wild parties, this is not the place.

If you are more persons at check in than you have booked for, you will not be able to check in. No persons except for those registered are allowed to sleep in the villa.

The villa cannot be rented for 2 - 8 persons and then take up a large amount of friends to spend the days and evenings at the villa.

Guests may experience disturbances from ongoing construction in the area 8 am - 5 pm.

Please see our reviews at Tripadvisor as well as films on Youtube.

The Surat Thani Province region

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.

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 and explore the island

• Muay Thai (Thai boxing)

• Rock Climbing

• Flying trapeze

• Snorkeling

• Kayaking

• Hiking

• 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 and taxi (we use Mr Bear, a very reliable taxi driver). You could also rent a longtail boat with driver and go around the island making snorkeling and beach stops where your like, maybe have lunch in a small nice restaurant on a beach. Since the island has steep hills you need to be a good driver if you rent a motorbike. We have some Honda Scooters for rent if you are interested.
