Luxurious villas ; amazing view. Very quiet and clean. Central place to go for restaurants / bars / beaches. Excellent idea to give a cellphone for the stay. We would recommend staying there. Hope to come back again next year. Many thanks to Bérengère and Franzi ("très sympa" !!!).

Absolutely amazing boutique villas very luxurious, gorgeous bathroom, infinity pool and views out to sea. The service was top draw and would absolutely recommend staying here. We were picked up from the boat and loved to be a little bit away from the busy restaurants/bars in Koh Tao. The perfect quiet retreat.

An amazing vista, beautiful design, very private villa. Let me be clear...stay here if you can - it is well worth the 9000bat a night (the price of a month at many of the simple rooms on the island). So why were we not overwhelmed... The a/c doesn't cool the room most of the day. The electricity is partially at... More

We had the best week in Koh Tao at The Place. We stayed in Villa 5, which was roomy and had amazing views. The hotel was full during our trip, but we literally did not see a single other guest during our stay. They go to great lengths to make sure that the villas are private. The best part of... More

Not much I can add to all the great reviews already! Can't believe there are people that complain about tiny issues. Yes it's up a lot of stairs and some noise from nearby bars at night but they can't help that! There's no restaurant or bar but you get great privacy, brilliant views and a service I've never seen anywhere... More

We were literally blown away by this paradise from the moment we were collected by the lovely Franzi, to the moment Be and Coral dropped us off at the ferry to leave! The Place itself - is just fantastic...breathe taking views, stunning villas that feel just like a home away from home - all complete with everything you need (and... More

We have just got back from the most amazing honeymoon in Thailand. We spent the last part of our trip on Koh Tao, which is a beautiful island. We chose to stay at The Place based on the reviews of previous guests and we were not disappointed. Everything was perfect from the villa, to the views, from the staff to... More

Words cannot describe my love for this place. I will come back to Koh Tao soon so that I can stay at The Place again. The BEST service I've ever experienced! The girls taking care of us, Bee and Crystal, were amazing. Just take my word for it, you have to experience it for yourself! You wont regret it!

The Place is located near Sairee Beach. It's a 5 minute drive from there up into the jungle. It's one of the nicest places i've ever been to. We stayed in Villa 7. It was a stunning view, the house was awesome. The bathroom was my favorite, because you could see the beach from there. The sunsets from the pool... More

Stayed here for the first week of our honeymoon. Everyone on staff is super helpful without being intrusive. They have thought of everything to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Definitely have a Thai massage at your room, those women work wonders! We walked down to Sairee beach every day and never felt the need to rent a motor... More
