There is nothing bad that We can say about this place. set on the side of a hill on an island surrounded by nothing but beauty and water. You can't go wrong. We spent 4 days at charm Churee Villa/ Koh Tao Bamboo huts. We'd splashed out a bit more for a waterfront bungalow and upon arrival were delighted to hear that we had been upgraded to a bigger waterfront sunset bungalow. Having no idea what we were in for we were skeptical as lead through the tropical trees on a funny little paved path to our Bungalow, But as our door was opened our Jaws Dropped. A huge marble room with a giant double bed right in the middle looking out through a wall on windows that presented us with unobstructed Panoramic views. .... Then it got better. Our bathroom was Outdoors. This place really emphasizes on being unique and sustainable and we could see a view from even point in our bungalow. Even whilst on the toilet. Pretty cool.
Every one was nice and friendly but the service really shined through when we got food poisioning from a local restaurant in town. Both My partner and I woke up Incredibly sick in the middle of the night and had to go to hospital. The caretake got up at 3am to take us, and as we struggled to walk through to the car along the long footpath he even Rubbed our backs when we stopped to be sick. Now that is service.
We were in Hospital for about 16hrs on a drip and first thing in the morning we got a visit from 2 charm churee staff coming to see how we were. They then brought us some plain rice to try and eat cooked from the charm churee villa and had someone clean our room and collect our books so that when could read whilst imobile at the hospital We checked out, and went back to our gorgeous clean room and we given room service and once again were checked on by the same two staff members to see if we were okay. ..... we also met the Owner of the resort, Mr Jaks. A lovely and very interesting man, who has a Passion for people and life. On the day we left he organised for us to be picked up from the pier in chumpon by people who worked at his sisters hotel on the mainland and take us back to the hotel for a shower and a place to leave our stuff while we had 5 hours to kill before our train to BKK left. Mr Jaks kept calling us to make sure we were okay and to inform us about our train status as he was looking it up on the internet to inform us if it was delayed which it was and is very common in Thailand. When we tried to tip the men and say thank you they wouldn't accept it, ( which is uncommon) said that it was all just a helping hand. These people went above and beyond.
We met a couple who weren't very pleased with their room. The cheaper ones are in the jungle set back from the water and are unable to get much sunlight through the trees. They voiced their disapointment and were suprised to get such an accomodating response. The people at charm churee villa apologised and then gave them a choice of a few other rooms that were not booked ( within reason of course) and let them choose the one they wanted.
It is exciting they have weddings, snorkling a bar and everywhere a great view. I hope to go back to see Palin Mr Jaks and the Charm churee Villa crew sometime soon in the future. Thank you to all the staff for your generosity and help.
