My wife and myself stayed here for the last part of our honeymoon in Thailand (having visited Chiang Mai and Koh Samui previously). Bea and Coral met us at the pier at Koh Tao with bottles of cold water and cold towels, loaded our cases and then took us to the Place. We were staying in villa six, the honeymoon... More

Stayed her for 3 nights with my girlfriend, only regret was not making it longer! The best service I have ever received. From the moment Rachel and Be meet you off the ferry and drive you up to the villas with all the staff gathered outside to greet you. Only 6 or so very private villas, no communal clubhouse or...

We looked long and hard when looking for accommodation in koh tao, and kept coming back to the place when looking on line. And we was certainly not disappointed there can't be any where better in Asia let alone koh tao. Words are not enough to describe this place. Personally picked up from ferry port with refreshments on route, we... More

Stayed 3 nights at The Place in mid-August and had an excellent experience! Two things particularly stand out as exceptional: the ambiance and the service. The setting is simply fantastic. Set on a hillside looking westward over the water, the villa's views are excellent. We stayed in the Honeymoon Suite, which was beautifully appointed, with a large balcony complete with... More

As soon as we got there, we understood the name, it truly is THE Place! We had a villa on top of the hill and the view was stunning, and so was the room. It felt more like a home than a hotel because we had our own kitchen and the complimentary hamper was very thoughtful. We really enjoyed our... More

Can I just say we are both still in awe of this heavenly haven. We are lucky enough to stay in some of the most fab hotels worldwide, but this is a totally different concept. The Villas are beautiful, and the unspoken 'Do not Disturb', concept, unless you want it is perfect. The plunge pool, outside furniture and views are... More

Our holiday was much anticipated and The Place is everything the reviews say it is. The villa was fabulous (loved the infinity pool), staff anticipated our every need, beach towels and snorkel gear on hand as we asked about it. Good referrals for local restaurants to deliver dinner to our villa, and for motor scooters to explore the beaches. Great... More

The Place is a really nice getaway for a couple. We stayed in villa number 1 which was lovely. We went there for four nights during our honeymoon and really enjoyed it. It's a ten minute walk from the town so you can go to all the nearby bars and restaurants. It also has loads of movies if you fancy... More

Amazing villa, incredible view and total relaxation. I cannot speak highly enough of the staff and how they operate - extremely helpful, friendly and available if you need them, full of knowledge to give advice on and organise the best things to see and do in Koh Tao. Alternatively, if you just want to getaway and reach ultimate chill, you... More

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
