My husband and I are 26 and we stayed at the Place for 3 days and two nights in May 2013. We had an absolutely wonderful visit and wished we could have stayed another week.
Before booking, we read countless reviews and viewed dozens of photos, but we were still shocked at just how beautiful our villa (#3) was. What stood out most to us was the attention to detail that went into our villa. For example, there is a faucet with filtered water, the TV comes pre-installed with hundreds of movies, the staff provides you with a basket of food upon arrival. We especially appreciated the folder that Bex and Franzy gave us when we checked in – it included menus for nearby restaurants, information about the island, how to order massages to your villa, and all sorts of other useful tips. They also gave us a cell phone that we could use to call with questions or to request pick up from other parts of the island. They also texted us daily weather reports. Our bathroom was beautiful, our bed was comfortable, and we loved our private pool. The Place is about a 10-15 minute walk down to Sairee.
Guy and Bex were also very helpful before we even arrived at The Place. Before we got to Koh Tao, Bex booked a private snorkeling tour for us for our first day on the island (with Goodtimes Adventures). Bex and Franzy picked us up from the boat, dropped us off at Goodtimes, and brought our luggage up to our villa for us. After our 3 day stay was over, Guy, Bex and Franzy traveled with us to the pier to see us off. The service is personalized and exceptional.
