Our Penthouse apartment is truly a one-off property on Koh Tao. Its vaulted ceiling and open plan design are instantly striking, giving the sense of space and light and its panoramic views of Koh Nang Yuan, the surrounding jungle, Sairee bay and the Gulf of Thailand are mind blowing.

You have one hell of a place here! We just loved our stay and all you did for us.  Was so unexpected.  Thank you for inviting us into your world and giving us the best vacation.  Take care and we will see you again hopefully sooner rather than later.

The Penthouse.

The Penthouse at Koh Tao Star Villa has nearly 200 square meters of living space providing ample room for up to 6 people. There is an open-plan living/dining/kitchen area; 2 bathrooms (one en-suite), two fully furnished, air conditioned bedrooms with king sized beds; a library on the mezzanine floor; and a large wrap-around west facing terrace. Add to this some high quality Yamaha audio/visual equipment, free Wifi, stunning panoramic sea and sunset views and customer service that goes “the extra nine yards” (including our free taxi service till 10.30pm) and you have an amazing place to stay on Koh Tao.

If there is just the 2 of you looking to stay in this fantastic place. We can close off the back bedroom and en-suite and give you a nice discount.  Can’t be bad.

A bit more info.

Koh Tao Star Villa is off the beaten track – about a 15 minute walk from Sairee town and Sairee beach. The result is a very peaceful location away from the rattle-and-hum of the throng and yet within easy access of the life and lights of the town/beach. By scooter this trip takes less than 5 minutes and we do provide a free taxi service to Sairee up to 10.30 at night if you need it.

The villa faces west over the gulf of Thailand giving you outstanding, panoramic jungle, sea and sunset views to enjoy from your terrace.  Please note that Koh Tao Star Villa enjoys these beautiful views because it is up a hill (some of which is steep). There are also quite a few stairs.  As such it is unsuitable for the elderly or infirm or for children under the age of 10.

Koh Tao Star Villa is committed to ‘Eco-tourism’ (a very much over used term in our opinion) and maintaining this tropical paradise.  To these ends we are very proud of the steps we have taken to make Star Villa as eco friendly as possible.  We ask that you please be a responsible visitor to the island, wherever you stay on Koh Tao.

The Penthouse is designed to accommodate 4 people but can accommodate 6 using the library on the mezzanine floor as an extra bedroom.   For the sake of clarity, this extra bed is a queen sized inflatable mattress supplied with linen, pillows, extra towels and dressing gowns. Please note that this room is not air-conditioned. It does have excellent fans for cooling but there is no air-con. The air-con units in the bedrooms are designed for and are the right power to cool the bedrooms only.  They cannot be used to cool the whole Penthouse.  Please note that there is an additional charge for the supply of the extra mattress.


The following prices are in Thai Baht. For up-to-date currency conversion click here. Please note that the actual currency conversion rate may vary slightly at time of booking.

For our ‘long term’ guests please note that we do not provide our normal free daily taxi service to Sairee (as people staying for this length of time tend to require a greater level of freedom anyway and they rent a motorbike or scooter for their transport around the island) – we do still provide a free taxi service to and from the pier when you arrive and depart; also we do not provide a daily maid service – instead  we clean every three days (including changing linen and towels) – we do ask that The Penthouse is kept tidy inbetween cleans.
