Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Koh Tao - Villa Sabai Jai

3 Bedroom, 4 Bathroom, Sleeps 6-8, maid service, breakfast included

OPENED 2013, The tropical Villa Sabai Jai in Thailand is unique because it succeeds in combining the natural features of the location with simple and luxury accommodation, high-end modern technology and a level of creative imagination that makes this an extraordinary villa. The villa is completely newly built, finished december 2012.

If you are 2 or 4 persons please contact us for price information.

The Villa occupies an exceptional position 35 meters above sea on the edge of a cape with panoramic views over the ocean, the nearby beaches, the surrounding islands and the Marine Park. The view is maximized by the practical layout and innovative design features. The villa is facing south and will treat you to both sunrises and sunsets. This is the perfect hideaway place for those seeking a relaxing retreat.

Sabai means ”laid back”, ”easy going”, ”peaceful feeling”. Sabai jai literally means ”well heart”, and this is the feeling you get when you visit this villa. This the Thai's use to express contentment, happiness or gratitude.

A winding road takes you to the entrance of the villa where you will continue across a lotus pond and into the heart of the property which is a wooden deck combining the different houses and the infinity pool in front of the buildings.

The free shaped pool is turquoise tiled and has overflow which makes it look like it´s part of the sea. Two large stairs in each end. A six person jacuzzi is a part of the pool and is placed in the middle facing the sea. On the side of the main house is an outdoor shower which can be used before and after swimming. Another lotus pond is forming the edge of the deck towards the east. On the deck you will find two sitting areas and sunchairs. To reach the outer deck and sala, which has a third sitting group, you have to cross a small bridge over the pool. From the sala, which also has rain and wind shelter, you have an exceptional view over the ocean, nearby islands and beaches. From the deck there is a private staircase down to the sea. You just enter the water and you are on the coral reef swimming around among beautiful fish. Two of the best beaches on the island, Tian Og and Sai Daeng, are situated on each side of the cape. You can swim, snorkel or walk to these nearby beaches for breakfast, lunch, dinner or maybe a drink.

For those who want to exercise we have a small gym with a barbell rack with adjustable bench, dumbells and a pull-up/leg raise equipment.

We can offer the following activities in the villa on request:

· SPA treatments on our own massage bed

· Restaurant Barracudas chef Ed Jones will come up and cook and serve you an “in villa dinner”, which you choose from his menu

· Thai food can be delivered to the villa, lunch or dinner

. Teaching for diving certificate in our pool in association with ACE Marine

Please note that the Villa is not suitable for young children, since the house has no special security protection for children from the height of the Villa.

Due to that electricity is very expensive on the island and that some guests use more electricity than others, we have chosen to let 30 kWh/day be included in the rental price. If you consume more than this, we charge 32 THB/kWh. The explanation is that we have no electricity cable from the mainland, therefore the electricity is produced in local diesel gererators. Since we care about our island and the environment we hope that you will help us by not using more electricity than needed.

Instead of paying a refundable deposit we require that you leave one of your passports during the whole rental period to our housekeeper. You will get it back at check out after having paid for the minibar and any damages or losses. At check out you pay cash in Thai Baht.

About Bob

How it all started

The first time we (my wife, children and I) came to Thailand was 20 years ago. After this first trip we have visited the country at least once a year. Much has changed but the best is still there, the climate, the food and the friendly people. After having traveled around in almost every corner of the country for 15 years we started to become quite tired of staying in different hotels. For two years we were looking around in the areas we liked best to find our dream land where we could build our dream house.

We were on our way to Koh Lanta to look at a plot that we were interested in, luckily we went even beyond Koh Tao to have a look what land was availabe there. After only 6 hours on the island, we had found our dream plot with an amazing location 35 meters above the sea, and it was for sale! Good was also that the ground was perfect for the dream project that we had in our minds for all these years. A villa facing south treating us with both sunrises and sunsets. Our wish was to have 3 bedrooms in separate buildings so that one can live undisturbed but close to rest of the family or friends, a main house with kitchen/dining/sitting areas, a large free form swiming pool and a private access to the sea from the large sundeck.

Bob purchased this villa in 2013

Why Bob chose Koh Tao

After 2,5 years of planning and construction our dream project was finished and we could move in.

It feels great to share this amazing villa with others that have the same feelings about it as we do. We try to spend as much time as possible in the villa, but since we have had more bookings than we ever thought we have started to build a new pool villa on another cliff just 200 meters from Villa Sabai Jai, scheduled for completion in December 2014.

As we mentioned we have been staying in many hotels around the country (and the world). Whenever you come to a new place you have to get to know the place and it takes time. Maybe you miss the best things because you didn´t know about them. That´s why we have prepared two binders, one for the villa and one for the island with redommendations of what to do, where to eat and what beaches to visit etc. So it will be easy for you to get a quick feeling about the island. We hope you find them useful!

Make your dreams come true!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Inredningen i husen var vacker, välplanerad och hade många fina detaljer. Sängarna var fantastiskt sköna och de stora badrummen med alla bekvämligheter var en fröjd att beträda.

Alla rum hade stora glasväggar som gjorde att man inte missade något av den magnifika utsikten. Dessa kunde även öppnas helt, vilket gjorde att man fick känslan av ett uterum.

På den stora altanen fanns många sittgrupper och solstolar vid poolen. Trots att det fanns andra hus i närheten var det ingen insyn och man upplevde total avskildhet. Dessutom var det lugnt och tyst dag som natt vilket är ovanligt i länder i Asien.

En fördel var också att det fläktade skönt hela tiden, vilket gjorde att vi kunde spendera mycket tid vid poolen utan att få värmeslag.

Det fanns två fina stränder i närheten på gångavstånd. Jag besökte båda och simmade i det varma havet, dock var det skönast att "bara vara" hemma på villa Sabai.

För att ta sig till shopping, restauranger och nöjen krävs moped eller bil. Det är inte långt att åka men det är en mängd branta backar att parera. Det finns mycket att handla och priserna är ungefär som de på Koh Samui. Restaurangutbudet är stort, ofta till mycket förmånliga priser.

Vi handlade hem frukt och grönsaker samt köpte hämtmat så vi kunde vara på hemmaplan och äta i lugn och ro.

Varje dag städades rummen och vi fick välja frukost som tillagades och serverades av deras maid Lek.

Ser redan fram emot att få komma tillbaka till detta vackra paradis.

Fantastic place with all you can wish for!

  • 5 out of 5
Most fantastic villa, with the best view you can wish for! I highly recommend it!!

I was here in January with my family and we will definitely go back next year.

This is a fantastic place. We had a marvellous time and really enjoyed the view, the lovely rooms, the pool area and the service we got.

The rooms are really nice decorated and the view from all of them are amazing. Just look at the pictures - That is how they look for real!

The pool area is perfect for relaxing, sunbathing, and of course just enjoying the view.

The Villa is not that suitible for small active kids due to the risk of falling down from pool side and stairs.

Holiday with style!

  • 5 out of 5
This luxury villas exceeded all the expectations that we had for our vacation. Fantastic villas with lots of space and with a breathtaking view of the ocean! The complex had exclusive bedrooms and spatious bathrooms. We mostly enjoyed the pool and the large terrace - both daytime and at night. We were 2 families staying here, but the villas are also perfect if you want to spend a relaxing holiday with friends or couples! A plus was the daily service from the maid. Koh Tao was a nice place to visit - lots of nice beaches, excellent snorkling and also good bars and restaurants. We really enjoyed our time here and would like to recommend this place if you want to spend your holiday with style!

What does it feel like to die and go to heaven...?

  • 5 out of 5
The villa is set 50m above the sea seaming with tropical fish and has a fantastic view of the rising and setting sun. The curved shaped saltwater pool gives a cool remittance from the afternoon on the terrace. Villa is stylishly decorated with recycled teak furniture and kitchen fully equipped including local porcelin. Ecology (saving water and energy) is encouraged by the knowledgable owners, who have spend years on the island and found the nicest suppliers of chef-at-home dining and massages.

Owner's Response: We´re glad you felt at home in our villa. We tried to make the house personal in order to make people feel like they are staying at home instead of in a hotel. This in combination with a housekeeper makes it a bit more comfortable and luxury staying in the villa. Cleaning, bedding and making breakfast might not be the most funny things doing on your vacation.

We had a magnificent stay in Villa Jabai Sai. The villa was one of the best we have stayed in, every little thing was thought of a real home from home. We came away with a life time of memories - A big thank-you to the owner Bob who was very helpful throughout the booking process. The villa is well-maintained, nicely decorated, and the staff is helpful while respecting your privacy.

  • 5 out of 5
"Dette er et paradis av en plass man bare drømmer om. Mange tenker at dette er et perfekt sted for bryllupsreise, for vår del var det også det. Det er ofte spennende å se om villaen ser ut slik de gjør på bilder, og det gjorde det her. Vi ble ikke skuffet, plassen er en skjermet flott perle uten noe særlig innsyn. Vi hadde også egen hushjelp som vasket og laget frokost til oss. Man kan om ønskelig leie scooter for å komme seg rundt, dette vil være nødvendig da det ikke ligger så veldig sentralt til, samtidig er det en liten oversiktelig øy som man lett når rundt om man leier et kjøretøy. For vår del lånte vi en ATV da vi ikke følte oss trygg på scooter i disse omgivelsene. Dette er en plass vi absolutt kan anbefale, og du får hva du ser på bildene."

Det Bästa Stället!

  • 5 out of 5
Efter att ha besökt många ställen i Asien så kom vi till Koh Tao, som vi förälskade oss i helt och hållet. Litet, lugnt och paradisiskt men ändå med puls och ett laidback nattliv nere på stranden i Sairee. Många barer med sittplatser på dynor direkt på stranden och enkla ljuslyktor förhöjer stämningen. Sairee är platsen att följa solnedgången med en drink i handen!

Snorklingen är fantastisk, en dag hyrde vi en longtailbåt och åkte runt ön och gjorde strand och snorklingsstopp där vi ville. En annan dag fick vi tips om en aktivitet att snorkla på kvällen med ultravioletta ficklampor, så häftigt när korallerna fick regnbågens alla färger! Nästa gång blir det definitivt dykcertifikat.

Huset är sanslöst och känslan av att komma hit efter en dag full med aktiviteter är oslagbar. Fri utsikt över hav och öar, härlig bris och en skön pool att hoppa i. Stora ytor designade in till minsta detalj ger en ombonad och lyxig känsla. Inga problem att stanna här hela dagen. Längtar tillbaka!

Most people come to Koh Tao for diving but that doesn´t mean there is nothing elso to do.

Except for diving you can:

• Take a boat around the island and visit the different beaches. Snorkel and swim with black tip sharks, visit unforgettable water worlds, stop at any of the countless secluded beaches. This is the best way of seeing real Koh Tao! Highly recommended!

• Fishing expeditions with equipment provided and a professional advisor to guide you.

• Visit the marine park

• Visit the paradise island Nang Yuan

• Rent a motorbike or ATV and explore the island

• Muay Thai (Thai boxing)

• Rock Climbing

• Flying trapeze
