The Place Luxury Boutique Villas
Ranked #1 of 49 Hotels in Koh Tao
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 28, 2012

We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 day stay at The Place and would recommend it to any couple wishing to experience true relaxation, incredible views, friendly and attentive service and luxury accommodation. Everyday we went out for fun around koh Tao and everyday we looked forward to getting back to our refreshing little blue plunge pool, long comfy sofa, and huge bed in that gorgeous, roomy Thai interior.

If you're okay with being a bit away from the town centre and a few jungle fauna (perfectly harmless geckos and cute little squirrels) then simply enjoy.

Although everything that I could write has already been said here, I must still include what an incredible time we had at The Place. My husband and I were on Koh Tao for just over 2 weeks between June and July 2012 and after spending the first week right on the beach, we had planned our second week at The Place. Our expectations were meet and exceeded with everything this beautiful property has to offer.

Guy and Bex make you feel instantly welcome in a most genuine and heartfelt way. They are truly there to make sure eve the smallest detail is taken care of and nothing seems to be to much for them. They know just what to recommend, regardless of what one might be looking for and they do it with absolutely sincerity. You can help but feel relaxed.

They have put together some amazing villas, that provide the perfect balance between making you to feel right at home, while still being pampered. Whether you are looking to relax in your private pool, enjoy a meal from the wonderful chef that comes to your villa, or have a perfect location to whip into town for a dive.... This place really does have it all.

Cannot recommend The Place enough and am very much looking forward to heading back to the island and hopefully getting a chance to enjoy Guy and Bex's kind hospitality once more.

Room Tip: We stayed in Villa 2, and loved the view as well as the entire set up of the kitchen, bed, and bathr...

Everything about this villa was amazing, the views, the pool, villa itself. They have thought of absolutely everything. I would definitely recommend staying here to anyone. Guy and Bex are very attentive and did everything to ensure we had a perfect time. 5/5!!!

If you are lucky enough to get a villa at The Place (they are typically booked months in advance) you will not be disappointed! I live on Koh Tao and was looking for the perfect spot for a special occasion, and I spent a full day checking out over a handful of the island's best accommodations. Nothing came close to The Place! The villas are gorgeous and beautifully decorated, and they are perfectly situated overlooking the beautiful landscape Koh Tao has to offer. In addition, you get loads of privacy without being too far from Sairee Beach. But the icing on the cake are Guy and Bex, who go above and beyond what is expected of hotel owners. The Place might look like an upscale 5 star "resort," but you get the warm and caring hospitality expected of a small bed and breakfast. These two really do EVERYTHING to make your stay perfect. Could not recommend anywhere on Koh Tao (or any other location for that matter) better than The Place!

We came to "The place" at the beginning of september for 6 nights with very high expectations after reading the reviews at TA and everything was exactly as we hoped. The villa is designed with attention to every single detail.

Guy & Bex are amazing, really we don't understand how 2 persons can be so attentive, caring and patient. Anything you need just ask, you will be amazed.
Thanks to Bex I had the best diving instructor (Cathy at BAN'S diving).

Thanks to Guy & Bex we had a fabulous honeymoon.
Guys just keep on what you're doing !!!!

My partner and I stayed here for a few nights in July and loved it. Having your private infinity pool looking over the tree tops and ocean is amazing. Attention to detail is amazing, including the pre programmed phone numbers, well stocked fridge and beautiful decor - i particularly loved the bathroom. Really private which we loved and great sun light to sun bake in. Would definitely come back. Only suggestion - including complementary transfer into town in morning and / or afternoon even if set time. While on the cheapish side it does add up, especially if you want to go twice but even if you don't, particularly after 9pm when you pay normal rates. The option would be nice even if it was at say two specific times.

Room Tip: We stayed in Villa 2 as Villa 1 was booked. Both very private

We can only reiterate what everyone else has already said: 'The Place' is without a doubt offered us a most wonderful, relaxing, and beautiful respite on Koh Tao. Guy and Bex really have thought of everything. There is nothing that they would not have done to ensure that our stay was a great experience. The villas were amazing (we rented 2 of them, the other was for our 2 teenagers), tastefully decorated and with all the little amenities that make a world of difference. And the service was over-the-top fantastic. By the way, the chef that Guy and Bex recommend to come to the villa and prepare a meal is very much worth the price, as the meal is comparable to what one would find in a top restaurant in Montreal or other North American city. 'The Place' comes highly, highly recommended. Freda from Montreal.
