We stumbled across The Place whilst searching for accommodation on Trip Advisor and decided to google it... after we'd seen the first couple of pictures it was one of those "OMG...we NEED to stay here moments"!!!
We stayed for 2 nights at the end of our Thailand trip after having 'roughed' it in basic style beach huts for the majority of our holiday. Bex and Guy were absolutely amazing hosts and really have thought of everything. From the mobiles they give you with their numbers pre-stored, the filtered tap water, an emergency first aid kid, i-pod docking stations and the freshly laundered dressing gowns. It is very rare that something you've seen on the internet lives up to it's reputation once you see it in real life but this really had the WOW factor..and some!
The views are absolutely incredible and it's in such a tranquil setting. At night time you can hear nothing but the chorus of crickets and the odd Gecko here and there which are such relaxing sounds. We were also lucky enough to catch an absolutely amazing thunderstorm which we watched from the cosiness of our bed which again, was to die for...it was the first time we'd seen two pillows each all trip!!
Guy also went out of his way to hep us mend our broken suitcase and really is a knight in shining armour! After getting picked up from our previous accommodation, he appeared out of nowhere on his motorbike just to say "hi" and gave us a bottle of Evian each in the boiling heat - absolute life saver! He also took the time to come down to the pier with us when we left which is such a nice personal touch and again, was beyond helpful when we arrived.
We couldn't honestly recommend this place enough. 100% pure paradise!!!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Place consists of nine luxury boutique villas, all with private infinity pools, that offer you total privacy and complete relaxation. The resort nestles charmingly in the hills above Sairee, close enough to be convenient for restaurants, bars, shops and the longest beach on the island, but far enough away to savour the tranquillity and refreshing breeze that comes with being in the hills. ... more less
