Have stayed here twice now and will definitely be going back. In fact on this visit I initially booked 6 nights and then doubled down, and now kinda wish I'd stayed put instead of heading to Krabi. I stayed in the rock villa which has 2 huge rocks forming part of the lounge/kitchen and more in the shower/bathroom. Koh Tao...

Far away from beach and everything. Walking distance to beach is aprox. 1200 meters from La Cigale. Dirty, poor maintenance and overpriced. Do not spoil our vacation, after first night we have moved out to another place - nice and cheaper bungalow located on the beach. We lost our deposit.

A La Cigale is a group of villas located within the ‘jungle’ of Koh Tao. The outdoor-themed bungalows showcase stunning views of the island and are just a short 5 minute walk to the beach front. The property we had a pleasure of staying in was quirky and architecturally inspiring! During the construction of A La Cigale the owner made...

The Baan Coon twin villa at la Cigale is not just a resort villa: it feels like staying home. Perfect for a family with young kids, very well furnished, with good quality appliances, a real kitchen where you can fix your own meals (or ask to be delivered some food from any restaurant in the area), with a nice hillside...

My wife and I booked la cigale via airbnb after seeing photos and nice remote location and 250m walk to the lovely sairee beach for 1 night. We caught the ferry to koh tao and was greeted by a complimentary taxi run to our amazing bungalow / villa, (the taxi driver was a massive fan of doraemon) We were given...

We stayed here for two nights in our honeymoon. Do not stay here if you want to be close to the beach. It is quite a hike to go back and forth to the beach. However if you want a couple nights away from it all, this place is absolutely beautiful. The "room" was an entire fully stocked kitchen. A...

Walking into our apartment at La Cigale we could tell immediately why this place was so highly rated. The place was spotless with a big beautiful kitchen and a large balcony that overlooked Sairee beach. The staff along with Andre the owner went above and beyond to ensure that every need was met including helping us arrange a boat tour...

When I think of luxury hotels, I imagine places that look like la Cigale, but I never imagined I could afford to stay in them. Not only was our Garden Villa huge and comfortable, it was affordable and in a great location: a 15 minute walk from Sairee Beach lowers the noise and doesn't require a taxi. Here's the kicker:...

We stayed in the Rock Villa at La Cigale for 8 days. It felt like home! We loved the small extras, like complimentary mini bar items and fresh coffee grounds that were replenished daily, a local cell phone, and the well-equipped kitchen. Andre was a great host--he was as available as we needed him to be, but also gave us...
