“Charming, Mystical Paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2012

Think back to when you last saw a Peter Pan movie, with its magical forests, little hideaways and ever so charming atmosphere that was created. Charm Churee is the “real life” equivalent of that story. From its private beach and incredible snorkelling to your rooms that are built around trees and have the most amazing views, to even their breakfast area which looks like it is gently floating on the sea. Everything at Charm Churee is made to ensure that you think you are in some magical fairy tale.

The staff have this amazing way of being there when you need them and being invisible when you don’t, leading you to believe you are the only ones there. Rooms are luxurious but at the same time down to earth and very functional. Breakfasts are served in a restaurant nettled away just above the sea, with its large spreads of everything you want to eat. The entire villa is built with a maze like quality and every room or building has almost been built in such a way that it is hidden and secret. The Villa is also very central and is only about a 10 min to the main town in Koh Tao.

We had a wonderful stay there and when we think back on how amazing it was it almost feels like a dream.

Room Tip: Room 55 is lovely, its close to the reception and has beautiful views

My husband and I spent one glorious week here on part of our honeymoon trip around Thailand. We did a lot of research prior to booking Charm Churee and were so glad that we went with this property! Our villa was really lovely, and much bigger than we imagined! It was our first time experiencing a "rain shower" (not covered with a roof) but it was a neat part of the experience! The bed was large and comfortable, although the linens on the canopy were a bit cheezy (pink gauzy material). The balcony was a perfect spot to watch the sun dip into the water.

Breakfast, which is included, was decent. It definitely paled in comparison to other places we stayed, but it was still ok. The beach is really lovely as well and it was never very crowded.

Koh Tao town is easily accessible by foot, although you do need to walk through another resort in order to do so.

This place is amazing, the staff cannot do enough for you. You are their number one priority and its good to see good old fashioned service is still their main goal. The food at all restaurants is fantastic, the coice for breakfast is huge. The snorkelling at jansom bay is some of the best i've ever seen and the spa is rustic and good value. Would definately stay there again.

Room Tip: Don't be tight the money is worth it.

We LOVED this property! The beach is just amazing with the most amazing sea life!
The resort is located on a hill and we travelled with our family... parents included! This is not made for guests who don't like excercise or walking!! You have to be VERY fit and active!
We don't have a problem and loved it, but for the older 60+ and not too fit it is hard to walk from the top of the resort to the beach and back. We had 'unfit' friends that went 2 months after us and they absolutely hated it! (I'm not surprised!)
The breakfast was very basic, but enough variety not to get bored.
The rooms are nice, but rustic - when you choose this property it all about location, location, location!
It is within walking distance from the 'main shopping and restaurant' area.
We hired quadbikes for the full period, but we did walk into 'town' a couple of nights.
I have recommended this hotel to numerous clients (I'm a travel consultant) and had so much positive feedback! Everyone look past the rustic'ness and just love love love the location and the restaurant at night!

We stayed for 9 days in Charm Churee Villa and it was totally amazing. Upon first arrival we were struck by the beautiful scenery and cleanliness of the place. The whole resort is build as if living in a rainforest and really gives you that 'back to nature' feeling. Jansom Bay is gorgeous with clear blue water and a white sandy beach. You can go snorkeling, take the kayak out or just relax on the comfortable sunbeds that are available to everyone. We stayed in the beach front cottage and that even has a private balcony with rocking chairs, pure heaven!

Then the thing that made our holiday; the divecenter and especially Margo. As we had never been diving before to us it was a totally new and amazing experience. Margo was calm and very professional with explaining all there is to know about diving. She really made us feel safe all the time and took us to the beautiful under water world. Thanks so much!! We even did a second dive and got to see, sting ray, schools of barracuda, pufferfish, clownfish, and so on...
And we are planning to come back and get our PADI with Margo! 5 stars at least!

The staff at Charm Churee is also great. Always helpful and friendly and making sure that you have the most amazing holiday possible. The room was cleaned every day by a team of 6 people, so it only took a mere 10 minutes and it was fresh and clean again! We would also like to thank P' Bas for his great help with our photoshoot and his friendliness!
Every other night we had diner at the Starlight restaurant, the food here is great and the sunset that can be seen makes it something very special.

Well I can go on and on, but I just want to say; give yourself (and that special someone) a chance to stay in True Paradise with Charm Churee Villa, Koh Tao!

Room Tip: We stayed in the beachfront cottage, which was amazing. But also the rooms more uphill are great wit...
