Value
The Place consists of 6 Luxury Pool Villas, 2 'Friends and Family Friendly' Pool Villas and 1 Honeymoon Villa. All have 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.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

This is our second trip to The Place and we couldn’t imagine staying anywhere else on Koh Tao. Guy and team have made the perfect ‘place’. It’s a quiet haven with sea views for sunset right from your villa. In the time between visits some enterprising drivers have set up on WhatsApp, a quick message night or day gets you picked up and taken to the beach or collected and driven back to your villa for less than the price of a cocktail. Just book it, you won’t be disappointed!

If you’re looking for spectacular views and quiet luxury with a private pool in your villa, you found it. The Place is close to town but far enough away to avoid all the noise, and hustle and bustle of the main road. If you don’t feel like driving, the selection of delivery restaurants The Place provides was perfect. Guy and the staff were amazing hosts and treated us like family. We couldn’t have asked for a better honeymoon!

Me and my partner stayed at the Place for 4 nights whilst travelling Thailand and we both agreed it was our favourite stay of the trip. The Villa and the view from the pool is absolutely stunning. The interior is luxurious but still has the feel of an authentic jungle retreat. The owner, Guy, and his staff are top class and very attentive, helping us get tickets for the ferry, doing laundry and making brilliant recommendations for activities in Koh Tao (scuba diving with Roctopus diving was amazing and unforgettable). We would both stay at the Place again if we returned to Koh Tao. 11/10.

Very attentive staff, beautiful views from the hillside in a jungle setting. Definitely rent the scooter from Guy to get around. Close enough to the beach and far enough away from the crowds. We visited in the wet season so there were mosquitoes. If you come at this time, make sure purchase insect repellent. The room was well appointed with large comfortable bed and amenities.

We stayed at The Place for 3 nights in late November and loved our experience. The villa was beautifully decorated and equipped perfectly (it had everything you could think of, whilst also having eco-conscious touches). The view was great (facing the sea & sunset) and the whole outdoor area with the pool was ideal for lounging on, come rain or shine. The TV was all set up with Netflix too - perfect touch. Guy - the owner - greeted us and helpfully showed us the villa as well as giving tips on exploring Koh Tao. He was super responsive on Whatsapp if we needed anything, and kindly arranged for us to be dropped at the pier at the end of our stay which helped a lot! Tet was also lovely and helpful - thank you! Just a disclaimer to say that if you want somewhere super central, then this may not be the place for you (I’d recommend looking closer to Sairee Beach) but if you want somewhere quiet and peaceful, but within a 10-15 min walk into Sairee beach, this is such a perfect place to stay. We walked in every early evening to watch the sunset on the beach, and then Whatsapped a local taxi company to drive us back for 200 baht. Easy. I believe The Place also hires scooters out too so you can get around easily. On the food front, the villa has a great little kitchenette and Guy has also thought to include menus so you can order in takeaway. The French Parlour did lovely takeaway breakfasts!

This stay was more than wonderful. It exceeded all of our expectations. The view, the location, the villa everything was perfect. The host (Guy) is helpful, friendly and sets the bar pretty high when it comes to hospitality! No wonder this place is high rated, because I can’t imagine staying at a better place in Ko Tao.
