The Place Luxury Boutique Villas
Ranked #1 of 50 Hotels in Koh Tao
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 25, 2011

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights. If we knew how great it would be we would have organised to stay longer. The Villa and view were absolutely beautiful and the service from the owners was great. We had complete privacy but if we needed anything all we had to do was ask. Location was really good too as its just a short walk into Sairee but enough out of the way that was peaceful and quiet at night. There's a really steep hill just up to where the villas are but it's only about 20 metres of hill and it never stopped us from walking back and forth from the town in Sairee.
I'd recommend The Place to anyone who wants to have a private villa with everything you need but close to town so you can go out as well. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in the future.

The Place at Koh Tao is an extremely special place to stay. Located in the Sai ree hills of Koh Tao, it provides privacy, an amazing Thailand ambience, extremely up to date entertainment options and an infinity pool to die for.

The view afforded by both villas is always breathtaking, and it is a fantastic place to get away from the hustle and bustle of Sai ree village.

The proprietors of the Place, Guy and Bex, are friendly, knowledgable and extremely accommodating.

Between the perfectly firm bed and hot shower (a rare commodity on Koh Tao), I felt like a king every day of my long stay.

Don't hesitate to book a stay at the Place in Koh Tao. It is well worth the price!

From the moment we arrived on Koh Tao, Guy and Bex provided an exceptional blend of privacy and incredible service. The Place is situated with a spectacular view of the ocean and is only minutes from the best food and nightlife the island has to offer. It is by far the most luxurious villa we have stayed in and even has its own plunge infinity pool which we used regularly from morning 'til dusk. We will definitely stay at The Place in the future and highly recommend it to all travelers.

The Place was the best choice of pool villa to choose from to staying on Koh Tao for a week of relaxing and enjoying all the fun of the Island.
My host Guy and Bec were so welcoming to the island and villa, supplying me with all the requirements you need from information of what to do on the island to the high standard of accomadation and service they supplied. The villa is situated in an ideal place on the island were it is so peacefull in the hills with a fantastic view of Sairee bay but yet still accessable to the beach, restaurants and bars of Sairee.
I would highly recomend this villa to stay in on Koh Tao as I had a fantastic time there.

Guy and Bex have created a truly unique experience, with relaxation being the key.
Any advice you need whilst on your stay, they can help you with. From restaurants, to day trip ideas and scuba!! They are always more than happy to help, but only when you ask for it, giving you the seclusion and privacy you want on a holiday away.

The accommodation itself is of the highest comfort and quality, and it's obvious that Guy and Bex have taken great effort to ensure everything is provided for. From the beautiful deck (with pool) and bathroom, to smaller touches like the mobile phone, The Place really has it all.

We had an incredible time and are already making plans in our schedules for our return!

We were greeted by the owners when we arrived and they impressed us with their entusiasm and friendly approach. the villa we stayed in was spotless and so beautiful. there is everything you need and if you do need anything it was just a call on the phone that was provided with the villa. The view is very nice and sitting on the veranda watching the sun go down over the ocean incredible. I am recommending this to anyone that like a relaxing private holiday. best of luck guys.

My partner and I have just got back from a stay in The Place, we had the most amazing experience and can honestly not find a fault in this perfect location. From the very begining Guy and Bex, the owners, were so incredibly helpful. My (now) finace organised our propsal with Guy before our stay. Guy arranged a massouse to come to the villa, a private chef to cook for us and even went to Koh Samui to try and find fireworks to set off in the mountains after the propsal!
The villa itself is beyond perfect, the decor is modern yet classic. The balcony, with a plunge pool and extremely comfortable sunbeds, lets you enjoy the amazing view without having to move too far from the fridge to get a cold drink! We had a few days of rain so spent the day and evening curled up on the sofa in dressing gowns and enjoyed the films on the entertainment box, we even ordered a take away so we literally didn't have to lift a finger. And when the sun came back out we were 10 mins away from the beautiful beach.
Guy and Bex have made this the most wonderful place to stay, they have thought of absloutly everything you could possible need and are on hand to offer great advice. I would highly recommend it to anyone going to Koh Tao.
