About the property

Indulge Your Senses... The Best That Koh Tao Has To Offer!

The "Upper" Villa is our premier two bedroom villa, the most beautiful, romantic, and fun place to stay on Koh Tao! The "Upper" has a huge master bedroom, the main living room, the round bathroom, along with the huge, award winning private infinity edge swimming pool & deck. There is a bridge to the roof (Jump into the pool, if you dare!), and the beautiful, tropical grounds. The master bedroom has a king size "flying" bed, a 50" flat screen TV, with premium programing by satellite, DVD player and library, Wi-Fi ADSL internet access (always free), air-con, & the best views on Koh Tao, all a short (3-5min.) walk (or a quick complimentary drive to anywhere you want to go!) down the hill to Sairee beach, the longest & most popular beach on Koh Tao... The "Upper" has a second big air-con bedroom with full size (double) bed, and an additional fold out couch bed, available at no extra charge. There are many great restaurants that will deliver wonderful meals to your villa door. We can arrange for in-house massage, private yoga sessions, and much, much more. There is a carp and giant catfish pond, just outside of the master bedroom window, and some fish food for hand feeding them, if you like... I promise you a wonderful time!

About Lincoln Kroll

Monkey Flower Villas was hand built by artist/owner Lincoln Kroll, along with his wife, Woonsen, over more than a decade. Starting out by building their dream home, Lincoln & Woonsen kept building and now have four unique luxury villas on their one and a half acre estate. Having started the villas rental business almost as an after thought, the owners wanted to offer their guests the best experience possible... "We consider every one of our guests to be very special, and part of our Family." Monkey Flower Villas remains a Family owned and operated business, and puts a lot of love into everything they do.

Lincoln Kroll purchased this villa in 2001

Why Lincoln Kroll chose Ko Tao

Pure paradise! Words and photos don't do our little resort justice... We hear it all the time from our guests, that it is even more beautiful than the photos... Warm water, warm people, day and night fun and excitement... Please be our very special guests, I know that you will be very happy you did!

What makes this villa unique

Monkey Flower Villas offers the best of Koh Tao, and also the best value. Our location is close to all the action of the town and beach, but without the noise, and in a much more private and secure location. I like to say that we are the Beverly Hills of Koh Tao. Not only will you enjoy the largest rooms and private swimming pool on Koh Tao, but you will never tire of the most stunning views imaginable, from the award winning, private infinity edge swimming pool, and from the living room and sun deck... You can even enjoy the roof top views with access from a bridge, and jump into the pool (if you dare!)... Be as quiet or as noisy as you like... It is all yours! Our lovely staff is always there to help you have the best experience possible. When you check-in, you will be given a local Thai mobile phone with all of the important numbers and credit, already installed. You will appreciate our famous 24 hour a day car and driver service, for drop-off and pick-up to anywhere you want to go on Koh Tao, during your entire stay! We are very proud of our customer service, and we consistently rank at #1 on the most popular review sites. I hope that you will be our very special guests!

One of my favorite places I've ever stayed

  • 5 of 5

Not only was the view from the house the best on the island but the service that came with the house was unmatched. Steve and Muhammad were the most friendly and caring people I have ever met. Best place to stay in Koh Tao

Pure wow factor!

  • 5 of 5

We came here 2 years ago, and couldn't decided which of Lincoln's villas to stay in, so opted for 2 of them (the other being Bougainvillea villa). The design of the villa both inside and out is pure genius - Gaudi-esque in style, and when you see for yourself the challenges of working with the physical landscape that these villas are sympathetically built on, it's inspirational. Comfort and decadent relaxation is guaranteed.

Everything you need is provided - and if it isn't then Lincoln's fine right-hand man Steve will get it for you. He will also drive you anywhere you want any time, always with a smile.

The location high up in the hills gives you a sense of seclusion and absolute privacy, yet is in fact only 10 minutes from where it's happening downtown.

Lincoln, Winsome and their adorable kids are the coolest most amazing hosts you could wish for.

Just go there and find out.. Karine and Darren

From my experience, I think you will want to spend as much time on Koh Tao as possible (at Monkey Flower, or elsewhere)... I hear, time and time again, from our guests that they wished they had more time here. Koh Tao is a small island, but it is full of wonderful experiences! There are so many things to do like snorkeling, & SCUBA diving, hiking, or renting a motorbike, or quad (four wheel all terrain vehicle) to explore the many dirt roads and paths around Koh Tao, there is a vibrant night life, and unlike most of Thailand, it is mostly kid safe, and family friendly, with fire dancing and music, BBQ's on the beach... If you can slip away for a late night, there is dancing till dawn, and really good all night parties. There is a flying trapeze adventure that is really fun (I have done it... It's not just for the kids!), there is mini golf, and you can watch a movie on a big screen, while eating your dinner at many of the local restaurants... There are many great choices for cuisine as well, so you can sample wonderful meals, and deserts from around the world. You can rent kayaks, and even shoot guns and practice archery at the shooting range. The true charm of Koh Tao comes from it's people, and though there are some local Thai's that do not share the happy good feelings, most are really nice, and you can meet interesting local expats, and people from around the world. You can take a long tail boat on a day trip around the island, stopping at different snorkeling spots and bays, or visit Koh Nang Yuan island, which is one of the most photographed beaches in the world, with a very rare three islands which are connected by two thin stretches of white sand beach, where you can ride a world class zip-line between two islands. There are charter sail boats, and other water sports, as well as fishing adventures, you can jump off the big boulders into the deep warm water, or go abssailing on a rock climbing adventure... Really, it is a special island, and the longer you stay, the more you love it!

After 45 days prior to your arrival date, I can offer you a refund if your reserved dates are re-booked by someone else at the regular rates. I hope this makes sense.
