Reviewed April 14, 2013

We stayed here in April 2013 ending a three week trip of Thailand, we only stayed for three nights I wish we could have stayed much longer. The Place really is like paradise on earth, you want for nothing in the villas they really have thought of everything! The staff are amazing and can't do enough for you, they give you a mobile to contact them on, we even got a text every morning with the weather forecast on!! They make you feel like royalty from the second they meet you off the boat. I could just sit and look at that view forever you have to see it to appreciate how beautiful it is! I will be going back one day my favourite place I have stayed anywhere in the world, you will not regret going to The Place!!

My husband and I stayed here for two nights whislt on Koh Tao just before our wedding. We were hoping for a slice of luxury and what we got exceeded our exceeded expectations!

From start to finish our experience was pure luxury, from the moment you arrive, the owners Guy and Bex, welcome you with a lovely reception and show you to your villas. They really have thought of EVERYTHING, even down to giving you a mobile phone loaded with credit to contact them for anything you need. They do not hesitate to arrange anything for you, from organising taxis, to ordering food, to making reccomendations of where to dine or for activities to do if you can drag yourself away from this fantastic resort for long enough.
The Villas are decorated to a very high standard and are equiped with all the lates mod cons, and the views are some of the best we have ever seen.

Our best friends were staying in the Villa next door yet we were secluded in our own little private haven and could have spent the two days there and not even seen them.

We treated ourselves to a private chef who came and cooked the most excuisite sea food for the four of us, again this was all arranged for by Bex and was an amazing experience.

I can not fault our stay and I do not think that i have ever said that about a hotel before, it really is the best place we have ever stayed. So reasonable for what you get and we will be back!

Thank you Guy and Bex for a wonderful experience.

The people who run this hotel make it wonderful - Bex, Franzi & Guy. Nothing is too much trouble & I loved the daily text messages to check everything was OK. Being honest, this is not the Four Seasons but then it's a fraction of the price. You get one of five villas with plunge pool, great sea view (set back on mountainside), good decor & in-villa facilities (inc amazing TV entertainment choices & kitchenette). They like to leave you alone so you do need to ask for daily sheet changing & room service (not a problem but do ask). The island itself is quite back-packy & grungy & the locals are building too much & littering too much. But the hotel is an oasis, & the snorkelling is wonderful (take hotel's recommendation of speed boat & guide). Food is delivered from local restaurants - I wanted (& found) more proper Thai food than was provided but I think they're going to catch up on this. Lot of noise (& poo) from giant geckos (but they're sweet) & cicadas & other wildlife - you get used to it & grow to love it (not the gecko poo). Getting to the island is a nightmare - we went via Chumphon because of good connections with Bangkok but it was still one hour small plane, one hour taxi & almost two hours sicky ferry (go to top level inside V VIP section). I'm being a bit 'warts n all' so you don't get surprises....but overall it's still a great destination in my view because of the splendid people, the utterly relaxing villa, and the sea-life.

We stayed at The Place in the last week of January. The staff were amazing, very friendly and extremely helpful from when we arrived to when we unexpectedly had to leave. My partner contracted Dengue Fever while we were on Koh Tao (not from The Place, we previously stayed in another part of the Island). While we were at the place, we didn’t get bitten, insect coils were provided and we think the area was fumigated so we felt a lot happier here compared to other accommodation that we used.

Bex was very helpful, recommending a good Doctor, collecting supplies from the village for us and assisting in our transfer to the hospital in Koh Samui, even finding available accommodation close to the hospital for me. We were unhappy to be leaving The Place early. The view from the terrace including pool was great, particularly nice for a drink at sunset. The villa was well designed with everything you could need.

The villa was set up in the hills about 10-15mins walk from the main part of town, although there are closer small convenience stores selling basics. We would recommend The Place to friends, the staff are all very knowledgeable and helpful including Mr Bear taxi’s service which offers good rates.

We stayed 9 nights in March 2013 and in our opinion it wasn't enough! Can not possibly speak highly enough of this place. Guy, Bex and Franzi are the nicest people you could meet and will go above and beyond to help you out with whatever you want. The villas are beautiful, is no nice to have a private little plunge pool and the view is sensational! We had the seafood platter on our balcony and it was unbelievable. They really have thought of everything here and we walked away thinking we would not change a thing. We cannot wait to come back, it honestly was the highlight of our trip to Thailand! Thank you so much Guy, Bex and Franzi, we'll see you again soon!
