The tropical Villa Sabai Jai - Eagle Villa 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.
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.
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.
Eagle villa comes with 4 double ensuite bedrooms and is perfect for couples or families with older children since the bedrooms are all in separate buildings but connected with a wooden deck and the main house with kitchen/sitting/dining. Close together but still private.
The villa is personally decorated with carefully selected items in thai style in order to give a good, peaceful and relaxed feeling.
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 villa has a size of 400 sqm inside and outside.
The free shaped 14 meter infinity pool is turquoise tiled and looks like it´s part of the sea. Two large stairs in each end. On the side of the main house is an outdoor shower which can be used before and after swimming. Another 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 lunch, dinner or maybe a drink.
There are two common bathing piers by the sea in the area. This is also one of the best places on the island with the chance to see black tip reef sharks (harmless) and turtles.

The weather on Koh Tao can change in a minute, we therefore ask you not to leave cushions outside and always close windows and doors when leaving the villa.
In our community we spray against mosquitos, however we recommend you to keep doors to bedrooms closed at sunset when they are mostly active. Also recommend you to use mosquito repellent and cover your body in the evening.
To avoid ants and other displeasant animals, make sure to pack any left overs in the fridge and clean the kitchen after your meals.
