wow......where to start?
As you arrive to the grounds of "The Place" (just a 2 minute drive from the beautiful Sairee beach) you're greeted by either Guy or Bex the owners ( a young, very cool couple, whom, I understand have been working on perfecting these luxury villas for the last couple of years). A white wash path leads you across a few steps to where we stayed in villa 1, this resort comprises of only 2 exclusive villas. You're first faced with an incredible view onto the west coast of Koh Tao, from a beautiful decking with it's own infinity pool! This really is a boutique villa! In our case Guy then lead us through the bungalow, which is open plan in design, fronted with glass doors that completely open up offering you that incredible view 24/7 from your bed, sofa or breakfast bar. The bungalow has a more than adequate kitchen, a stunning bathroom, which is cleverly designed with a glass roof, to give you the sensation of showering outside. Everything in this bungalow is brand new, and of the highest quality......from the shower to the bedding/towels/dressing gowns to the flatscreen tv (,which boasts a hard drive with hundreds of movies, documentaries and series......I suggest that you check the island out before you settle down with the menu for the tv or you may not see anything of Koh Tao)! The reason I love this place so much is, aside from it's obvious beauty is the attention to detail....I couldn't think of 1 thing that was missing or could have been better, and maybe that's due to the fact that the service is so accomplished and personal. You're greeted with a welcome hamper when you arrive, a bbq is set up ready to go and Guy offers to buy meats or anything you may need, should you choose to have one. There is a file full of information (menus for food delivery, things to do on the island, even basics of the Thai language, and SO much more).
The exciting thing is that the owners seem determined to continue perfecting these Villas and striving to make them better and better, I look forward to visiting The Place again next year, thank you for a fantastic stay!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Place consists of nine luxury boutique villas, all with private infinity pools, that offer you total privacy and complete relaxation. 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
