What a treat! Would highly recommend The Place to any couples or friends that enjoy a beautiful Villa in a wonderful location.

What else is there to say, agree with all the other reviewers - the Villas are well designed and have everything you need for a comfortable stay. Guy and Bex have really thought through their design and there is a great attention to detail. The pool is lovely, relaxing and I miss it already!

Franzi is a delight and I am sure a wonderful asset to the team at The Place.

Well done guys, and I cant wait to return.

My wife and I stayed here for the second part of our honeymoon and really wish we'd stayed for all of it! It's difficult to list all the little things that came together to make our stay so great, but most of our welcome to the villa was filled with us both constantly saying: "Wow!", "Oh wow!, or, "Cool!"

The set up that Guy and Bex have at The Place is seamless and the little details make your stay more hassle free than you can imagine: all of the facilities in the villa from nespresso machine to tons of music and movies for every taste - if you even get the chance to enjoy them; the little welcome starter basket of food; the really well stocked mini-bar; the perfect level of contact with the team - you can have as much or as little service as you want; mobile phone to get takeaway meals if you fancy a night in; just everything!

The location is absolutely wonderful and the infinity plunge pool makes the most of it! I couldn't believe how secluded we felt in our villa - we stayed in Villa 1, I think there are about 9? - and felt like we were the only people for miles around and couldn't see any of the other buildings.

We were met by Guy, Bex, Franzi, and their driver Mr Bear at the boat pier for the quick journey up to the villas. This was a lovely touch and throughout our stay we were really impressed with the whole team.

Koh Tao is such a lovely island - very chilled out, with nice bar and restaurants and lovely beaches. Obviously it's the dive mecca of the Gulf of Thailand and when you get in the water you'll realise why. It's literally like diving in an aquarium.

All in all, a fantastic set-up that puts you at its heart and makes sure you enjoy your holiday. We loved it!

This place truly is paradise! We stayed for the final week of our honeymoon and we could not have asked for more. The room is perfect - huge bed perfectly positioned to take in that wonderful view, the most fabulous shower and bathroom and a hugely practical kitchen and sitting area. Everything you could think of is covered. We were unfortunate enough to have a few days bad weather but having the entertainment box in the room made for a relaxing day watching many films from the media box and the arrangement with the local restaurants to deliver food was great. All the food we ordered was hot, delicious and delivered in super quick time.

The service the guys provide here is unparalleled. Daily texts with weather updates and ideas on things we could do in the rainy weather were so considerate and something we've never experienced elsewhere. The whole team are always on hand with the slightest of queries and nothing was ever too much trouble. They really do make the difference between good and great.

The villa seems a long way from Sairee beach but once you get your bearings it's so simple and we did the walk at least twice a day. The hill at the end is a bit of a climb but how else can you expect to get those incredible sea views.

We really did feel like me had our own spot in a private paradise and everything that everyone has said is so true. No reviews or photographs can prepare you for that first time you walk onto your private pool deck and see that completely uninterrupted view which is all yours for the duration of your stay.

We loved our stay in Koh Tao and for us, The Place made paradise even more perfect.

First off, the personal and luxurious touches to these villas is what makes them special.

This is just pure luxury in jungle with all the comforts you need in its entirety!

You are collected from your previous accommodation by taxi with Mr.Bear and your host Franzi on a scooter. They have free water for you and the van/taxi is air conditioned. The owners greet you warmly and you are shown to your villa by Franzi and Bex. I love the place villas t-shirts - gives it a professional touch.

When we arrived to the hilltop villa there was a gorgeous little sign made out if wood hanging in our door to greet us saying "Eithne&Jason". The deck is huge with plunge pool, sun loungers and beanbags and a palm tree. The sliding doors of the villa are mirrored on the outside and nobody can see inside. You walk in and there's a huge living areas and a step up to the king sized bed with nets above. Your own desktop and entertainment systems with any movie you want. (Flat screen rotatable ) . Lovely L- shaped couch area and kitchen. They provide you with a welcome hamper! Nice touch! Kitchen is very modern and not cheap. Expresso machine. Fridge stocked , milk and butter toaster everything.

They even have mosquito burners at the door. Sunscreen and aloe Vera along with bug spray... All neatly presented .

Bathroom is huge ,open ,bright and feels outdoors, although covered. His&hers sink...gorgeous toiletries and towels , everything you need. Shower is gorgeous!

Bed us huge and so comfortable it's hard to get out of it! Delivered of breakie is prompt! And lovely and cheap!

They provide you with a neat well organised black booklet and notebook containing everything you need to know plus a mobile phone to call them if you need anything at all. Thy give you great recommendations!! The chef can come to your villa and cook for you!! He was on holidays when we were there but we visited his resturant.... "Barracuda" ...in Sairee .. It's A most! It's really near the beach where all the lovely lil bars and chill out areas are with fire throwers and a mix for everyone! The gallary and Su Chilli are fab Thai places with gorgeous food! My favourite was Su Chilli for Thai... And it's always packed!

Currently no.1 accommodation in koh Tao on trip adviser and I can see why. It's popular too, as I could only get 2 nights on June 11th 12th here. It's worth every penny because the villa is full of everything you need. Nothing is done on the cheap and it shows immediately and with one look around!

Staff are really helpful and will do anything for you. They've obviously spent alot of time, love and money on this place and it shows . Would go back next year for sure!!

It's a real little retreat away from Sairee beach. After 8pm taxis can be super expensive (600 TBH to go to 7/11 and back one night!!) but once you know this in advance you can plan.

Memorable stay ... For total relaxation ...we loved it!

Thanks,

Eithne&Jason
