“AMAZING”
Reviewed January 20, 2014

Amazing place - location, views, decor, people.

It is the best place to stay on Koh Tao by far - I would recommend everyone to go here.

I do hope I will be able to get out here this year to stay as its a little slice of paradise. You cant help but relax, unwind and have a blissful stay.

My husband and I stayed at The Place for 8 nights on our honeymoon, and had an amazing time. The villa was beautiful and the view breathtaking. Guy, Bex and Franzi were lovely and made every effort to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. We highly recommend that you stay at The Place, you will not be disappointed! J & M

We had the priviledge of spending 9 days @ The Place in December, 2013. Having spent a month or so in Hong Kong and Thailand before coming to Ko Tao we chose this resort to end our vacation, based on its # 1 ranking among all resorts in Ko Tao.
What we were looking for...
1. Beautiful accomodation w/ private pool, if possible
2. Modern amenities
3. Privacy
4. Unobstructed views of the Gulf of Thailand
5. Support should we require it

Thanks to the entire family @ the Place...Franzi, Bex and Guy and their incredible complement of warm, friendly and supportive team members, we had the time of our lives ! We decided to relax one night after a full day of boating and snorkelling. Picture this...1 push of the pre programmed cell phone provided to us to order pizza, watched an old James Bond movie (from literally hundreds of available options) & shared a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc from our fridge that had been stocked for just such an occasion. How perfect ! Franzi, Bex and Guy...you all worked very hard to ensure that every moment of our 9 day stay with you would be exactly as we wanted it to be...and for that we are forever grateful. We only hope that we have the opportunity to see you all again in the not too distant future.

My husband and I enjoyed the most amazing 7 night holiday at The Place from 14th to 21st December 2013. It was everything other guests had written on Tripadvisor. You definitely need more than a couple of nights! Customer service and care cannot be beaten. Absolutely nothing is too much trouble! Guy, Bex & Franzi were there if you needed them but left you alone if you just wanted to chill and enjoy the beautiful villas and to die for views. We were in villa 5 which is private and away from the small reception and parking area. Lots of steps to climb but so worth it! I had a massage by the infinity pool which was heavenly and also had the in room chef prepare a birthday meal for us - fabulous it was. There were lots of films to watch and we did manage a couple including Gravity! So easy to get Mr Bear (taxi) with the mobile phone which is provided for the duration of your stay. I could go on repeating what others have said but it is all true and if you want somewhere really special to stay then don't hesitate you WILL NOT REGRET IT!!! Thank you 'The Place' hope to return soon!

we wish we stayed here during our entire stay in koh tao. most attentive staff we've ever had.. so romantic, beautiful villa, brand new, clean, very private... loved all the details in the villa. well designed!! gorgeous views!! can't say enough good things about this place. definitely worth the $$.

would definitely recommend to anyone and hope to be back for a longer stay in the future!!

no restaurant on site but you order in from a restaurant nearby and they deliver to your villa within 15 min.

Room Tip: you're up in the hills so if you're looking for a beach resort, this place isn't it...

As summarised in previous reviews this place is perfection. It's the little things that really count from the local mobile phone, the services of mr bear the taxi driver, the personalised name plate on your front gate to the wonderful , friendly, helpful staff .

Me and my husband just got home to cold Sweden after 14 magical days at The Place! We took the boat from Samui after working in Hong Kong, where we were greeted by the nicest, sweetest people you could imagine!
Franzi, Bex, Guy and Mr.Bear. These wonderful people are stuck in our hearts forever!
After a short trip, we arrived at our villa and it was breathtaking!
Wonderful pool, sunbeds and fatboys on your private terrace.
Inside the villa there is EVERYTHING you can possibly ever need, and then some. Lovely bathroom, kitchen, computer, your own cellphone with the preentered numbers to all the team.
You can be completely private at The Place if you like! They come and clean up as soon as you call, but you nerver have to feel that someone just knocks the door as you are lying in your sunbed. Luxury!
Everything you could possibly want help with, is just a phone call away!
Take the opportunity to take diving certificates if you have the time! Recommended since everyone has been working on Ban's dive center and Franzi helped me get a very kind and patient teacher, Jeani!
The entire team who works at The Place are incredibly friendly and talented. When you come and when you go they stand and greet, it's touching.
I can honestly say that I cried like a baby when we went on to Bangkok ....!
It feels like leaving your family!
We can with warm memories, heartily recommend The Place, we will be back!
