About the neighbourhood
Villa Crystal is located at Sitara Retreat which is situated close to the southern tip of the island. Nearby to the villa, many of the island's main attractions are only a short drive away, which include Lamai beach, Butterfly Garden, Waterfalls, Aquarium, Elephant trekking, Grandmother, Grandfather Rocks, horse riding, water sports, Thai boxing, cookery classes, amongst others. The island only measures some 25 km at its widest point. The villa is within 15 minutes walking distance (steep in a couple of places) of Laem Set, which is a charming area with a local beach, several fine restaurants serving both delicious Thai and Western food, couple of small, quiet bars, well reputed massage shops, Yoga, taxi services and a travel agency. We strongly recommend the hire of a 4 x 4 pick...
Getting around
The southern part of the island, where Villa Crystal is located, remains pretty much unspoiled, especially compared to the north. The best way to get around is the use of a car or moped, where we can assist you in the rental. With the villa being located in a quieter part of the island, driving can be a more pleasurable experience. To go to the beach, restaurants, local attractions etc, we do strongly recommend the hiring of your own transport. If you do not feel to be a confident driver, there are several private hire car companies (of which we can give you telephone numbers) that can pick you up at the entrance of Sitara, which is a 4 or 5 minute walk down the hill. There is secure parking at the villa, via steps up to the car park.
