We spent 4 days at The Place and had a wonderful time. While our villa was beautiful and the view stunning, it's the service that makes the real difference and sets this boutique hotel apart. The team truly cares about you, knows your needs before you even know them and does everything to make your stay in Ko Tao perfect.... More

Stayed at The Place for four nights in July and had the most amazing time. All the girls go out of their way to make sure you have a great stay with restaurant recommendations and suggestions of things to do. The mobile phone that is provided was extremely useful and we used it to order takeaways twice! The room was... More

My wife and I came to The Place for our second stop on our honeymoon. We were coming from Chiang Mai and didn't arrive on Koh Tao until a day after we had expected due to the weather in Koh Samui being too windy to land our plane. Needless to say, we were a little stressed out when we had... More

We stayed in the honeymoon villa, and it was just perfect. The philosophy of leaving you to it if you wish, but with the staff being available at all times via the very handy mobile phone, was just perfect. The villa was so gorgeous, we were tempted to stay in and enjoy the food they'd left for us, but as... More

My husband and I spent four nights at The Place at the end of our honeymoon. This was our final bit of luxury in Thailand to top off our trip. The villas are absolutely amazing. They are even better in person than they appear in photos. The location is amazing, tranquil - set amongst jungle looking out to see. We... More

Simply incredible!... The villa and panoramic views of Ko Tao were stunning, complimented by 24 hour service from the delightful staff; they're a real testament to why this place has 5* reviews across the board & why it's the best place in Ko Tao! Thank you so much girls! We will be back ;-) Anna & Lucy
