We spent 3 days at Charm Churee Villa.
We usually stay on Sairee but thought we would splurge (although relatively cheap for what they offer) and stay here. The staff was accommodating. The room was clean and rustic at the same time (the bathroom had an awesome outdoor shower). We had a room right next to the beach and would go for morning dips in the warm ocean water (picture of our front porch attached). The only small but necessary problem was how far it was from town. The secluded location means that you have a part of Koh Tao all to yourself, but it also means that it's quite a trek to the nearest area with a store. You can also order food and drinks at the resort's many restaurants/bars, but you are mostly limited to food and drinks.
I do have a small anecdote that illustrates how amazing the staff and owner of Charm Churee are:
We were using an outside Thai company for our wedding ceremony on Jansom Beach. Once the staff leaned that we were having a wedding ceremony on their property, the owner graciously gifted us an upgrade to their honeymoon suite! I've attached a picture of the private pool and view (with accompanying rainbow!).
They also wished us luck and came out to see us off when we checked out. Extremely hospitable and accommodating.
I highly recommend coming here for either a wedding ceremony or honeymoon!!
