We booked last minute but the host Austin was always in touch. We had issues with PayPal etc which meant I had to pay cash on the day, which I wanted to put on the credit card.
The villas are architecturally superb. It was like...More

Although the hills on the island are absolutely terrifying the service received here was phenomenal and the accomodation was first rate. Steve and Mo were always on hand, and the beaches were second to none. My favourite place to chill whilst travelling Thailand.More

Monkey Flower Villas feature extraordinary architecture and amenities. Built into the natural beauty and granite boulders of the hillside overlooking Sairee beach, the longest and most popular ...Morebeach on Koh Tao, Monkey Flower Villas is only a few minutes walk to the sand, yet very private, and secure. Every villa has stunning sea and beach views. The "Upper" villa has a very large private infinity edge swimming pool and spa (take the bridge to the roof and jump into the pool, if you like!). The master bedrooms are huge, very romantic, safe, and comfortable, Most of the rooms boast 50" flat screen HDTVs with premium Western programing, air-con, free Wi-Fi internet access. The "Upper" villa features the "flying" bed, hardwood floors, and a huge sliding glass window overlooking the swimming pool and the bay below. There are several sound systems, and musical instruments available to use. All guests enjoy 24 hour a day courtesy car and driver service to anywhere they want to go on Koh Tao*. Each villa is provided with a local mobile phone for easy access to all important numbers. Monkey Flower Villas has been recognized as providing an excellent customer experience and service. *As our guest, you will enjoy our famous 24 hour a day complimentary car and driver service, for pick-up and drop-off to anywhere you want to go on Koh Tao, during your entire stay! Many people do not realize that normal taxi service on Koh Tao is very expensive compared to other parts of Thailand, with a simple ride from town to town often costing 500. Thai Baht or more one way, and TWICE that amount late at night. If you were considering renting motorbikes, our driver service can also save you from possible extortion by unscrupulous renters, who prey on tourists, and the risks of riding a motorcycle on an island with many dirt roads and difficult riding conditions. For these reasons, our car and driver service is not only convenient, but also an incredible value! When you check in, you will be given a local Thai mobile phone, with important numbers and credit already installed. When you need to be dropped off or picked up, simply speed dial your driver, who will be there in a few short minutes. No other accommodation on Koh Tao offers this kind of complete transportation solution. Less

It is my pleasure to answer your questions. There are several ways to get to Koh Tao. The fastest and easiest way to Koh Tao is to fly directly to Koh Samui... There are hourly flights in and out of Samui daily. It is a good idea to arrive as ealy as possible to Koh Samui, to allow transport time to the ferry, and maybe have a bite to eat. From Koh Samui both the Lomprayha, and the SeaTran ferris are good options to gets to Koh Tao, with each having three (sometimes more) departures each day, morning and early afternoon, and another departure in the later afternoon.
The SeaTran is very conveniently located close to the airport for the fastest transfer to and from the airport. The SeaTran ferry boat Koh Samui phone number is: Tel : (66) 077 246 086-8, the Bangkok number is 026292833. The phone number for the Lomprayha catamaran ferry Co. Koh Samui is 077427765 , Bangkok number is +66(0)878907766, Lomprayah Chumphon is 0819565644, and Lomprayah Koh Tao is 077456176... Two more ways to Koh Tao from Bangkok are the sleeper train to Chumphon, I recommend either the first class cabin, or the second class sleeper car (Lower berths are best!)... This is a fun and less expensive option, but requires you to wake up at about 5:00AM to depart the train once you reach Chumphon... It is also possible, but I don't recommend to fly into Chumphon or Surathani, as there is much more difficulty in getting from the airports to the ferries.
There are also daily joint bus/ferry boat tickets from Bangkok each day, also through the Lomprayah ferry Co.... They run pretty nice, comfortable coaches with only one stop for a meal along the way to Koh Tao. This is the least expensive option, and sometimes the most convenient. I often refer our guests to a local travel agent called FameTour, who can arrange all manner of transport and accommodation in Thailand and abroad. There are fast commuter flights to Chumphon, then the two hour Ferry boat ride to Koh Tao.
I hope that helps... It is my pleasure to answer your questions, please let me know if I can help in any other way!

We stayed at the Bougainvillea in August. We had three or four cloudyish days during our week but I was told that we were a bit unlucky. It's supposed to be better on this East side of Thailand than the west that time of year. It's a really nice Villa, but it doesn't really have views from the pool (which is more of a plunge pool than a swimming pool), though you can see the sea through the trees. You'd be better off going to one of the lovely beaches than lounging by the pool in my opinion.
You wouldn't want to walk from here to shops and restaurants but the team at the villa will drive you there at a moments notice and pick you up at anytime so don't let that stop you. Taxi's are very expensive on Ko Tao so I would say this is a huge benefit of staying here.
Hope that helps!

Monkey Flower Villas offers four unique villas. There are high places, and deep swimming pools, so young children should never be left unattended. That being said, we do have many guests with children, and have never had problems. The nearest beach is about a five minute walk from the villas, but with our complimentary 24 hour car and driver service, you can be at any of Koh Tao's beautiful beaches and bays very quickly and with very little waiting. I hope that this is helpful information, and that you will be our very special guest. Please feel free to contact me again any time, for any reason.
