Monkey Flower Villas features extraordinary architecture and amenities. Built into the natural beauty and granite boulders of the hillside overlooking Sairee Beach, the longest and most popular beach 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 three-bedroom "Orchid" 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, the fastest and most reliable (600mbps!) free Wi-Fi internet access. The "Orchid" villa features the "flying" bed, hardwood floors, and a huge sliding glass window overlooking the swimming pool and the bay below. There are two premium sound systems, and musical instruments available to use. All guests enjoy 24 hours 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 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 the 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.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Better than the photos. Monkey Flower Villas exceeded my expectations of joy, which were high, considering it was my son’s wedding. We booked all 4 Villas for the wedding party of 20 and it was perfection. Plenty of large areas to gather in, plenty of private places to sneak off for a quiet read or game of bridge. All the pools were fabulous, with Gardenia being my particular favourite because I like to do lengths in the mornings and have never been able to do that in a private pool before. All the villas were stunningly beautiful and so luxurious. The huge rocks in the rooms were wonderful but it was the perfect little details that kept me oohing and aahing all week. I have never before felt so relaxed in such luxury and this was in great part due to Mo and Steve for whom nothing was too much trouble. I was a little worried about all the hills but they were no bother because Steve drove me everywhere, with a friendly chat and a smile on the way. The kitchens were so well equipped and appointed that I actually wanted to cook in them. I didn’t in the end because the phones and menus in all the villas made it so easy to order such a wide range of delicious food so cheaply. The huge refrigerators in all the villas ensured that my wine was always chilled, beer was always cold and there was always plenty of ice.
On such things are holidays made.
The wedding reception was held in the garden next to the Gardenia villa and a more beautiful spot would be very hard to find. With the lanterns glowing in the darkness, the trees enclosing us and the lights of the town glimmering below it made for the most magical of evenings. If you want to get married in Thailand then I highly recommend the Monkey Flower Villas as a venue.
My favourite moments were sitting quietly in the mornings gazing out at the magnificent sweep of the bay below and watching the squirrels play in the trees ( oh! and my son’s wedding, of course.) It was a wonderful experience for me and I am confident if you accept my recommendation it will be for you too.

We loved staying at Monkey Villas...it was really special. It's very comfortable, clean (with daily cleaners) Mo the host was very attentive and gave us advice on where to visit and booked restaurants, boat tours etc. We chose the Bouganvillea which was more than adequate for our family of four. All the villas are up a steep hill and therefore its a bit tricky to get around as there are no paths on the road, Steve the driver, picked us up and dropped us wherever we wanted to go on the Island without complaint. (They even give you a mobile to ring him), which feels a bit decadant at first, but we soon got used to it. We even asked him to come back one day, five mins after dropping us as the beach we had asked to go to was a bit dirty and full of rubbish...he did this with absolutely no complaint. ( the only thing I would say is that the villa says it sleeps six. I was comfortable with my 15 year old son sleeping in the mezzanine area, which you get to via a ladder. However I wouldn't be comfortable for young children to stay there as there is a big hole, which you can fall out. Adults would struggle getting in and out, particularly if you need the loo in the night.
Just a tip in-case you book this villa. But overall we had a fantastic stay and couldn't fault it.

I was impressed with all the little details at Monkey Flower Villa.They allowed us early checked in early morning. A minute I first entered to The Upper Villa, a room which is up on the hill with a incredible view. The Infinity pool they designed to connected with the beach. That is a definitely a great reward after a long journey. There is a roof top area for you to enjoy the view or jump to the swimming pool.

The Villa is a large one with 2 bedrooms with a super outside view,well decorated, great cleanliness, Round Shape bath tub,kitchen is decorated like in the cave with fully equipments.

Mohumud, a manager came to greeted us and introduce room facilities for example a coffee machine with fresh coffee capsules from Bon Cafe provided. There is a massive ice bag prepared in the freezer, CocaCola and some of still water bottles. There is nice and good quality of a Bluetooth speaker for customers to play some nice music. Also there is a mobile phone provided for customers to call manager for anything we require or even make a phone call to a driver,Steve to collect us for sightseeing in Koh Tao.I would say this is absolutely value of money to stay here with transport included.

Hotel owner Khun Lincoln and Khun Woonsen were very nice, they came by to say hello at the villa and provided us a lovely Turtle swim ring. Mostly customers were foreigners, once in a while they will have Thai visitors. They were so kind asking if I’d like to have anything like Somtom and sticky rice? Very kind of them.

Next they we went out all day for snorkeling, kept our luggage and came back to Villa by 6pm for a shower. I honestly dont want to go anywherelse but just to stay at the Villa. So we will definitely return the this place and make sure next time we will stay more than 1 night.

We have just returned from 6 night stay at the beautiful monkey flower villas and it certainly didn’t disappoint. This was our 4th holiday to Thailand but first trip to Ko Tao and I would say it’s one of our favourite islands! Steve our driver was waiting at the pier and as the road up to the villas is extremely steep having 24 hour driver is invaluable. We stayed at Bougainvillea which was absolutely beautiful with a fantastic pool. Mo the manager was on hand with great knowledge of the island advising on best restaurants and places to visit! Every morning within 5 minutes of phoning him Steve would arrive and we’d just say take us to the best beach today which he did depending on the weather. Freedom beach and banana rock being our favourites! We’d never have found these places without him! Restaurants in the town were lovely with a chilled vibe. If you are thinking of booking monkey flower villa I’d say DO IT you will not regret it! We will definitely be returning to this hidden gem with its fabulous staff!

A group of 11 of us stayed in the large villa for a week. It was absolutely fabulous! The property itself is stunning, with views to match. You can trust the incredible photos and drone shots from
their page; it’s as impressive in real life! It was spacious, clean, and comfortable, with cozy beds and hot showers. Our trip was absolutely made by Steve, who is supposedly the “driver” but actually the man behind it all! Not only did he drive us to and from various destinations (a huge relief for the few of our party who did not want to drive motorbikes, & for preventing the whole group from having to drive at night) but he was responsive, helpful, efficient and friendly in response to inquiries and requests. The cleaning team also deserve a shout out for keeping the villa spotless and managing to keep up with the supply of towels & linens for such a big group. This is absolutely the place for a luxury island getaway and we were not ready to leave when the week was up. Highly recommended:)

Wow. The pictures looked nice, and the rating on Booking was amazing (9,6) so we thought: let's try it, it isn't cheap but for a few nights what the hell.. We felt like millionaires, the villa was super clean, we got a basket full of fresh fruit and a blender to mix your own smoothie, fresh coffee beans to make your own coffee etc. But the best part: you get a small phone with Steve's number on it. Who is Steve? Just an amazing guy. He will fix anything for you and drive you everywhere anytime (6 am in the morning to go diving? No problem). Just call him and hell pick you up in no time. So basically you get a personal driver with the villa. What? Yes! And Steve and Muhammad know the best spots on the island. So you get two guides as well. Don't think any longer: book it!

What a fantastic property, very luxurious with each villa slightly different depending on how many bedrooms you need. I stayed in the five bedroom house which seemed to have the biggest bedrooms, with panoramic windows and a penthouse annex apartment with incredible views over Sairee Beach. I also visited friends at the 'Top Villa' with two bedrooms and infinity pool which was just perfect for relaxing at anytime of day or night. The beds suspended from the ceiling with wrought iron railings were the pièce de résistance for me, and the interior design in both properties was gorgeous, incorporating the natural rocks of the island into the rooms where possible. Mo and is team are on hand to help you in anyway you need and nothing is too much trouble for them. They go over and above expectations to make sure you have the most relaxing, comfortable and perfect stay here. Khap kuhn kra!!

Monkey Flower Villa is situated in the hillside of Koh Tao. The view from the front of the villas spans across the entire West side of Koh Tao. The villa itself was very clean upon arrival with new sheets, towels, and amenities readily available. It is the perfect affordable place to hang out with friends for a holiday, family for the weekend, or simply relax during the summer. The owner, Mohammed, was very understanding and always available when needed. Lastly, the villa offers food delivery services as it if about 7 minutes away from Sairee beach by motorbike. Highly recommend!

We stayed 3 nights in a 5-bedroom villa and had a wonderful experience from the moment we arrived at the ferry to the minute we got dropped off. There were 4 of us (2 couples). Mohammed and his team took care of all of our needs. The villa is very spacious, clean, and has unreal views. Mohammed picked us up from the ferry and shuttled us during our stay and gave us great recommendations of what to do and where to eat. He booked our excursions and was very helpful with laundry needs, picking up/drop off, etc. He was very communicative and prompt. We would love to come back and stay at the same villa. We stayed in Thailand for 2 weeks and this was my absolute favorite stay. Can’t wait to come back.

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!

Hi there 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!

Yossi, 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.

"The villa is on a steep hill, but don't worry, you don't have to walk a step uphill since Steve will pick you up anywhere and takes you downhill too. Amazing"
