“Very Noisy, construction in progress”
Reviewed 20 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

This luxuary villa, is beautifull, clean, well equipped and has a nice swiming pool.
BUT :
- It's not as closed to the beach as it is said in the presentation (there are a road and 6 villas between the sea and the property)
- the property is in a construction area (the closest construction site is 10m from the villa), so it's very noisy and not as peacefull as you may hope

Management Response

Thanks to have appreciate our Villa DIVA.
For the construction, unfortunately we can't control it but it's temporary and the villa next door (at 50m and not 10m as you said !) will be finish end of september.
Actually the Villa is situated at 100m from the beach. All the Villa is with seaview. I am sorry to say, there is only 2 villas in-between the beach and us.
The other one are on the left side of our Villa with no incidence of the seaview.

“Simply wonderful, tranquil and beautiful”
Reviewed 22 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

The villa is absolutely wonderful and so is the staff who make the stay utterly perfect. Everything you would like to do, from scooter rental to boat trips, changing light bulbs or getting takeaway delivered, is arranged in a very professional way and always with a smile. We opted for pick up at the airport in Phuket after long flight and it was well worth the extra money.
The private pool is good sized and has a jacuzzi and outdoor shower, there are plenty of seats outdoors in the shade (as well as indoors) and even an outdoor fish pond/aquarium with koi fish.
There were a few outages that lasted a couple of minutes each but nothing that made our stay difficult in any way. As the villa is situated some distance from any other house it is best if you turn on the outdoor lights before leaving in the evening. The lights are somewhat complicated and it may take some time before you push the right buttons, but on the other hand it looks very nice once you've managed to get it the way you want.
There are at least two good restaurants within a short walking distance and also a café and a small shop to buy snacks etc. All in all this is a fabulous villa located on a very tranquil island. Party animals and people who crave hoards of fellow tourists to be pleased can look somewhere else, this is not for you. Me, I would love to return!

“AMAZING”
Reviewed 30 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

The accommodation is gorgeous, spacious and cool, with beautiful views of the islands in the bay. The local Thai eateries are lovely and relaxed. The staff, Mhee and Wanna were delightful. Wanna kept the place spotless and served us Thai breakfast (as requested) each morning. If we needed anything, Mhee was onto it! If we needed dinner picked up from a local restaurant, she was onto it. If we wanted a trip, she would get the best deal and make it as special as possible. Mhee even offered to babysit the kids and they thought she was great fun. Everything was done with a genuine smile.

The Island itself is amazing. Peaceful, beautiful, friendly and safe. It is also very well positioned for visiting everything there is to offer in the bay. There wasn't one go-go bar or bogan in sight!!!

The island did have its own half moon party while we were there and I went to check it out fearing the worst but it turned out that there were no more than 70 people there, most of whom were locals cooking up wonderful BBQ fish etc and there was a great local band playing. There was a wonderful sense of community enjoying a few drinks, great food and good music.

This holiday was a great adventure of simplicity that kept us and the kids in wonderment.

Nothing to complain about at all - even the quirky electrics were entertaining. And the beds are the most comfortable I've ever slept on and I thought my one at home was good!

Great place to chill out, only 3 of us so very roomy. Local staff lovely. Island very quiet with some beautiful beaches, though more expensive than some other places we have stayed in Thailand.

“PRIVATE LUXURY ON PRISTINE THAI ISLAND”
Reviewed 7 December 2013 for a stay in November 2013

people found this review helpful

This is actually the first review ever that I'm writing while we are still here. This means that everything is so perfect that we feel so comfortable that nothing would go wrong:) When we started to plan our Koh Yao trip (we came here from Lanta) we wanted to stay at KY Island resort. But since we are travelling with two kids the reviews about construction noise there had deciding effect on our decision that we won't go there. So we were left with Niramaya villa and Villaguna resort which are actually near each other at the same beach. Then we find out this "luxurious “perfect place called Villa Diva Star which is situated at Villaguna resort but is privately owned. It is private, no next door neighbors but still near restaurants and beach. This is two storey villa with 4 bedrooms and a private pool. Since there were 5 of us we only took two bedrooms and the other two stayed locked.
This place is really amazing with fully equipped kitchen, large living room with home theater system, music surround system that also plays outside in the gazebo at the pool. The price includes daily maid service that will prepare you breakfast of your choice.
Mhee, the lady that took really good care of us also arranged daily boat trips, scooter rentals and transfer at very good price. Since we had our 9 months old baby with us dinners were always a challenge. The possibility of delivery at home (from Sabai corner restaurant) was really great.
At the end I have to state again that this place on wonderful Koh Yao Noi (this really is Thailand as it was years ago) was probably one of the top places we have ever stayed while travelling around the world.
