My partner and I stayed at The Place for 3 nights in mid August 2016. Overall we found it fantastic. The villa itself had lovely decor. It was very spacious and clean. It was a joy to watch the sun go down while sat in our private infinity pool. The very knowledgable and friendly staff were always at hand; they... More

Superb views on the island from the amazing villa and plunged pool. Impecable and personalised service. Off the beaten track but close enough not to feel isolated. A nice bicicle ride will take you into town, or a quick (and cheap) taxi ride if you are feeling lazy. I cannot recommend it enough, I hadn't been impressed by an accomodation... More

This place is better than all the reviews say. The villa was enormous and had everything you could ever need. The deck and pool was fantastic with stunning views yet total privacy. True luxury, I can't recommend it highly enough.

After two months of post-vacation blues, I'm finally getting around to writing this review which is well deserved. My husband and I booked our honeymoon at The Place and stayed for 6 nights during the beginning of June. Upon arriving at the pier in Mae Haad, Rachel, Be and another Place staff member were there waiting for us with ice... More

The owner of The Place knows exactly what he is doing. A warm and welcoming reception by stunning and competent Coral and Rachel, A beautiful room with endless small touches that you rarely find elsewhere and an information booklet filled with exactly what you need to know. Brilliant touches are : the computer in the room (cool home screen), the... More

The villa was beautiful, with an amazing view. Ideal for couples as it is very private and secluded. Staff were friendly and very helpful. The only negative is that we would of liked to be closer to the beach. Would recommend hiring a bike.

The Place might literally be my favorite place on Earth. The rooms are extremely nice, the in room pool is amazing, the staff is second to none, and the views are incredible. Within minutes of checking in we were discussing altering our trip plans so that instead of travelling around Thailand, we would just spend two weeks at The Place.... More

Unforgettable… Reception worthy of the kings, with the extreme kindness of the three girls of the hotel (Coral, Rachael and Be), via the fantastic villa, our stay of a few days was in any PERFECT point. All the details are thought and anticipated, and "The place" is melted completely in a splendid island. Still thank you with the teams for... More

The villas are absolutely amazing. Every detail had been thought of for every aspect of the trip. Native English speakers were waiting for us at the dock when we arrived at the pier. We were shuttled to The Place and promptly showed to our villa. The view was breath taking and the surroundings were extremely private. We rarely saw or... 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
