We decided to stay for 5 nights at The Place for our honeymoon after reading rave reviews on TripAdvisor. This is one of the best decisions we've made!!
We were warmly welcomed by Bex, Franzi and Mr. Bear at the pier. Upon reaching the villa, we were instantly blown away by the ocean view from our patio where we spend many afternoons sun-tanning in peace and privacy. The villa is beautifully furnished. Really love the "outdoor" feel of the bathroom. Kitchen is very well equipped with everything you need to prepare a late night snack or a quick breakfast. In short, you can literally not step out of your villa at all as there's a complimentary food basket given to you upon arrival and delivery is available from selected eateries in Sairee Village.
The villas were built such that we have total privacy to ourselves. The staff is not obtrusive at all. In fact, you don't see them much but they are always contactable on their mobile phones and there when you need them. Everyone at The Place are so friendly and you are always greeted with a smile, even as they zoom past you on their motorbikes.
Would like to thank the following people:
Franzi - Thank you for taking good care of us throughout our stay. You attended meticulously to our needs and gave us great and honest advice on where to go, things to do and good restaurants to eat at.
Guy & Bex - Thank you for helping us with the arrangement of ferry tickets and personally checking us out at 5.30AM...now that's excellent service and dedication!!
Mr. Bear - Thank you for driving us to our snorkelling spots and dropping us off at the ferry terminal in the wee morning.
We really felt so at home at The Place. There's nothing for us to pick on. Everything is so well thought out right down to the smallest detail. We are now working out the possibilities of going back again in the near future!
- 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
