As Monkey Flower Villas 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 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 THB 500 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, 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.

Best spot in Koh Tao, best place in Thailand! ”
We travelled around Thailand for 3 weeks and decided that Koh Tao was our favourite spot. Its excellent for scuba diving, the views are amazing and there weren't too many families. Monkey Flower Villas are situated on the hills and incorporate natural rocks into the villa interior. They are very spacious and spotless and only a short walk from the hustle and bustle around Sairee beach. Walking is optional because Mo and Steve provide a complimentary 'taxi' service. This is incredible because the taxis are relatively expensive in the island. These guys are part of what make the villas great. They are genuinely nice people. I would recommend the villas to anyone who likes to keep busy during the day but wants their own quiet sanctuary too. The lower villas don't have private pools but this didn't matter to us. There are loads of great beaches nearby with perfect conditions for swimming and snorkeling.
Andy, Thank you for writing such a positive review!!! We are very proud of our special place, and our excellent customer service, so it means a lot to us that you had an excellent experience!!! I will pass your praise on to Steve and Mo, I know it will make them smile :) We all loved having you as our very special guests, and hope that you will be back again as soon as possible!!!

The best in Thailand”
This is easily the best place to stay in Koh Tao and probably in Thailand. Their services (drivers and managers, cleaners) cannot be rated high enough. If there is any exemption possible to give an additional star in Agoda rating, I am giving it! 6 stars then. Private transfers 24/7 are true gem on this island and impress everyone who knows how expensive taxis are there. Swimming pools, villas, views - all have been our favourite. Monkey Flower Villas Team - thank you for everything!
Marcin, Thank you, thank you, thank you for taking your time to write a very positive review about your stay with us at Monkey Flower Villas. I hope that you will be able to be our very special guests again sometime soon! Love, health, & happiness, Lincoln, Family, & Staff Monkey Flower Villas Koh Tao, Thailand
Perfect villa, Perfect view, Perfect service”
I hope I can stay more days in Monkey flower villa. Everything was perfect beginning from Steven pick up us. We stay at upper villa. The villa near the sairee beach but is very quiet on the mountain and have the wonderful sea view. The swimming pool was so nice. If you wanr, you can directly jump to the pool from the roof. There are two big bedroom, a large living room and one kitchen downstairs. If you don't want go outside, a lots of menu you can order food from outside. Make sure download more music in your mobile, because the villa has the good sound effects audio. The villa location maybe could not see the sunrise but sunset is so beautiful. I must give my highest evaluation to Steven. He is the most passionate driver I have never seen. Everyday we call him to send us for dinner, he will arrive immediately and share a lots of story with us just like a friend. I must will share this villa to my every friend.
Tingting, Sorry for my very late response. I did not realize you had made this very positive review until this morning. Thank you so much! It was our pleasure to help make your stay the best experience possible. We all hope that you will be able to come back again as soon as possible!

The Best Place in Thailand ”
This is the most amazing place I've ever stayed in in my entire life. And while it's not cheap, it's worth EVERY single penny. We stayed here for 4 nights, 2 in the upper villa and 2 in the lower villa. We booked the second two nights in the lower villa to save a couple hundred dollars, but in the end we wished we had splurged and stayed all four in the upper villa. The lower villa is awesome too, but it does not have a pool - but there are so many awesome beaches to visit no pool is necessary!!! The best thing about this place = the personal drivers: Steve and Mo. You will actually end up saving money here because of them. Cabs are pricey on Koh Tao and Steve and Mo know the island so well that they have the best recommendations for food, beaches, snorkeling, diving etc. Being able to call them on the cell phone that was provided to us was priceless - saved so much time doing research. Steve is the man, and made Koh Tao the best part of our trip. STAY HERE!
Drew, Wow, thank you so, so much for such an wonderful Review!!! I am sorry it took me so long to respond, I just found the Agoda reviews :). We are delighted that you had an excellent experience with us and on Koh Tao, and hope that you will be back again as soon as possible!!!

Best luxury place in Koh Tao”
If you can afford it, its the place to stay! The upper villa pool is magnificent, the views are breathtaking. Steve and mo were awesome. The free rides to anywhere on the island are very very helpful. Steve took great care of us. The villa is huge, bedrooms are large and spacious, patio is awesome, breakfast on the terrace is unbelievable, tv has lots of channels, including a channel to watch NBA all day ! Only drawback is that there is no restaurant, we have to order food for delivery or go to the restaurants. If i really have to nitpick then maybe a big mirror is missing in the villa. Cant recommend this place enough. If I visit koh tao again, I know where im staying, no need to look elsewhere!
Great stay for family with small and big kids. ”
Wonderful villa with great wiew over Sairee beach. The pool was great and we loved jumping in from the roof. It was great with the transport service to anywhere we wanted on the Island. Steve and Mo were always smiling and positive no matter what our requests were. Would recommend monkey flower for great getaway for families and group of friends as the 1st apartment is spacious and beautiful. We slept like babies with only the sound of the geckos!
Ines family, Thank you for this fantastic review!!! We love to know that you had the best experience possible! We all hope that you will be back again as soon as possible!!! Love, health, & happiness, Lincoln, Family, & Staff Monkey Flower Villas Koh Tao, Thailand
Beautiful Villa one of a kind”
So unique, beautiful gardens and villa Comes with 24 hour driving service included. The staff exceeded our expectations. Would recommend Monkey Flower for a group trip, rent all 3 villas!!
The best place to stay on the island”
Not only were the accommodations extremely clean and comfortable - with a nice private pool, but Steve and Mohammed were the best. They not only get you where you need to go, but also provided great recommendations on where to spend the day and evenings. I would definitely stay at Monkey Flower again!
Human Lively Stay”
It was superb stay. The hotel staff are super friendly and attentive to everything we need, make you feel like a king. Free transfer to everywhere within the Koh Tao. No worries on the activity, restaurant, looking for taxi boat, daily schedule. The staff will help you on everything you need. Good design hotel with natural build. Sun set view, sea view, nature, can see from the villa, from the room, from swimming pool, from sun deck chairs...
Stayed for 5 days with my husband in the lower villa (no pool). We were absolutely delighted with our stay. We were a bit apprehensive about not staying on the beach, but it was well worth it. The views were amazing. The villa exceeded expectations. The service from Mo and Steve was outstanding. We could order breakfast from anywhere in town and menus were already in the room - so in fact, we ate better breakfast here than is some hotels we stayed in. The lads helped us with our trips, our transfers, our laundry and everything we needed. We were picked-up or dropped off anywhere on the island 24/7 as required. This was a truly luxurious boutique stay. Can not recommend enough!
David, Thank you for this fantastic review!!! We love to know that you had the best experience possible! We all hope that you will be back again as soon as possible!!! Love, health, & happiness, Lincoln, Family, & Staff Monkey Flower Villas Koh Tao, Thailand
the upper villa is like a dream came true , it has the best pool in koh tao with amazing view , the location is accepted and the staff (steve and mohammed) make you feel like you are at you home , i would diffently want to go back there
Watch your step.”
First off: The staff on hand to greet, chauffeur and advise guests is excellent and very hospitable - and that is invaluable for guests. As to the comfort and condition of the interior of the villas, I can only comment on the unit in which my husband and I stayed during our snorkeling visit to Koh Tao - the Lower Villa. The interior space is absolutely enormous, yet the comfort and functionality could use improvement and some basic safety attention. Specifically: The entire floor is polished, flat (poured foundation with no texturizing) concrete. This includes the shower/toilet/vanity area that is situated a half-flight above the main space and the bank of steps leading to that level. The stairs consist of seven steps each with an 8" vertical rise, and there is no handrail. There is no slip-proof matting of any kind, and I wouldn't consider this unit for children or anyone who has mobility issues or who can't catch himself quickly against a wall or exposed boulder when walking on polished, soapy or otherwise slick concrete. There is an A/C unit in the bedroom - which is quite small compared to the total unit space - and it cools the bedroom just fine. However, the rest of the space is ventilated (in 28+C tropical weather) by opening windows and switching on the one and only, wall-mounted, non-oscillating, wire cage fan hung on the wall adjacent to the bedroom door. There was more than sufficient track lighting throughout this three-level space - but not a single ceiling fan. Go figure. On an aside: The white vinyl sofas could stand slipcovers since those can be cleaned and also cover the dirt and tears in the vinyl. I know it's basically a beach house, but still... Like I said, I can only speak for the unit in which we stayed.
Live like rock stars!! ”
Steve and Nick (staff) were amazing. So accomadating and helpful. The villa itself is impressive. The view is by far the best I have seen from anywhere I've stayed. The pool is amazing and there's a small bridge which you can cross to jump off the roof into the pool (highly recommended!). The villa has it's own music room which gives it that celebrity/rock star feel! It's just a shame we aren't talented enough to play any of the instruments..however we did make use of the speakers :-) the villa is very large and can sleep 6 people. Would recommend if you're looking to have a good time with friends or just as a couple, like us. It really does have the wow factor!!
While there was a "Thai-phoon" during a majority of our short stay, we were still able to enjoy the pool. The place was big enough to prevent cabin fever, and it's convenient that food delivery was available. The hosts were friendly and accommodating, but our favorite was the owner's dog, Sausage, who visited us during our stay. Only issue were the bugs, but given the location, seems inevitable. Just make sure to keep the screen doors closed. Otherwise, I would recommend staying here during your visit to Koh Tao!
Alyssa, We love to have you as our very special guests, and enjoy helping to make your stay the best it can be! From myself, Steve, and all of us (including Sausage) at Monkey Flower Villas, THANK YOU! We all hope that you will be back again as soon as possible!!! Love, health, & happiness, Lincoln, Family, & Staff Monkey Flower Villas
Lower villa. Great, but No pool.”
The resort is not a hotel, it is several villas grouped together. The staff is fantastic and will drive you anywhere. Great views. The "lower villa" has no pool.
Amazing stay from start to finish. Great views and great villa plus great attention from the hosts. Would definitely recommend!
We booked the Lower one bed room suite. It was an amazing stay with geat hosts. Transport that was included with board was a big plus. Steve and Mohammad were always available and they even provide you with a local cell phone to contact them any time of day. The view from our room was simple amazing. There are also butterflies and squirrels all around and it felt like we were living in a forest. The only negative thing I can think of.....and this was not really much of an issue at all.....is that the airconditionar was in the bedroom and it was a bit difficult cooling the whole room. I can highly recommend this place!
Now the best”
we got in late was upgraded to a huge 2 story villa great !
Friendly stuft Nice Villa
Driver Steve is notably a great staff of the villas - upon our arrival at the peir he kindly took us to a local footwear shop where we were able to find a perfect flipflop for our toddler. We very much enjoyed the conversations with him.
Yoshiko, Thank you very much for the positive review. It is our goal to help you have the best experience possible, so we are always looking for ways that we can improve. We all hope that you will be able to come back again as soon as possible! Love, health, & happiness, Lincoln, Family, & Staff Monkey Flower Villas Koh Tao, Thailand
