Once you walk through the carved wooden gates (actually made out of Bali temple doors) you’ll experience the breathtaking serenity of Villa Dao. A surrounding wall, ensuring maximum privacy, encloses the immaculate private gardens. A crystal clear swimming pool with fountain beckons you towards it.
Villa Dao is stylishly appointed in a Bali style with western features and comforts. Nature is the predominant force here – everything is focused on the gardens and swimming pool. Both bedrooms have luxuriously comfortable beds, and lead right out onto their own terraces. You can find a spot to relax anywhere in the grounds – the open living area, large sun deck and plenty of spots with the gardens.
Being located close to Klong Khong beach, Villa Dao is very convenient for a good number of beachside restaurants and bars – only 500m away. For more choice you could head to Long Beach (4km north) where the road and the beach areas have a larger selection. Klong Khong road is home to many good Thai food stalls if you want to try some authentic local food at bargain prices!
For daytime activities, the management can book any trip you wish – snorkeling, diving, kayaking, island tours, elephant trekking and more. The operators run a convenient service picking you up from the villa and dropping you off after. You can also rent a car or scooter here for a good price.
Nearby attractions to visit by yourself include orchid and butterfly farms, elephant trekking, Klong Khong Beach, Long Beach, Klong Nin beach, plus the Mai Keow Cave.
Living Area: Right by the pool, the open living area has large, comfortable sofas and a plasma TV with DVD player. Also cable TV connections with over 60 channels to choose from.
Kitchen: The stylish kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to make yourself a quick bite to eat or a full evening meal.

Dining Room: The dining area has a great view of the tropical garden from all seats. It's also only a few steps away from the swimming pool for that post-lunch dip.
