When I had read all of the amazing reviews of 'The Place' I just wanted to book! Unfortunately the website said they were fully booked, so I mailed to see if there had been any cancellations... luckily, Guy was able to provide us with 2 nights accommodation in vila 3! Guy, Bex and Franzi are just wonderful, they are able to assist you with anything you could possibly need. The Vila's are amazing, every little detail has been considered to make it just PERFECT for you. The hamper that is provided for you is also just brilliant!! We loved every second that we were there and we can't wait to go back!!
Advice - Book as long as you possibly can there! There is so much to do in Koh Tao!
- Also, don't think about it, just book it, its amazing! Thanks again for such an amazing stay x

Room Tip: We stayed in Vila 3 which was brilliant - But I bet every single one is :-)

We spent 5 nights at The Place in February. The villa was perfect in every way with its great view & wonderful amenities. It is a short walk into town but why bother, you have everything you could possibly need supplied to you by Bex, Guy & Franzi.
Thank you for a wonderful end to our holiday.

Room Tip: they are all good

We stayed at The Place for our honeymoon and it was just perfect! It has the perfect balance between luxury and a homey feeling. The view, the pool, the bathroom, the privacy, and the service! The pictures look great, but they don't make justice to the villas; they are even more beautiful in person!
The Place staff have every single detail thought through so that your stay is perfect: a cell phone for you to keep during your stay in Koh Tao, menus from nearby restaurants that can deliver to your villa, yoga mats, snorkels and masks, information about the island, a driver that will take you to town for a few bucks, groceries--just everything you'll possibly need! We just wanted to stay at The Place forever

Room Tip: You can't go wrong at the Place

We stayed here for 4 nights in March 2013, we went with high expectations & we were not disappointed! The villa is completely private and although 'the team' are extremely friendly, they also go out of their way not to disturb you! So you end up with everything you could think of in an amazing setting - it is one of the first times we have really 'retreated', we did go down into the village for dinner in the evenings and the village has a very 'young vibe' - we found a lovely restaurant called the Gallery. The village is walkable definitely but it is a big hill on the way back & there are taxis waiting to take you for 300THB. The taxis are also something else! If you like riding in the back of trucks, you will love sairee village!
It is a very special place to stay - with reflection, I wish we had explored the island more but it was difficult to leave the villa! It is the style in which the villas are furnished that makes them so appealing. We would stay here again & seeing as we still need to explore Koh Tao, there is a good chance we will!

We had great expectations of the The Place after reading all of the positive reviews on Tripadvisor which were not only met but wildly exceeded. The Place is a fantastic retreat on Koh Tao. The villas are amazing five star luxury - every detail is considered and the views are beautiful. From meeting us at the ferry to arranging day trips and details for us, Guy, Bex and Franzi are hospitality at its finest. The 10 minute walk to Sairee didn't bother us - it was really nice to be away from the hubbub of the main strip but still have easy access to dining, spa, activity options, etc. If you are going to Koh Tao, you must stay at The Place and if you are not going to Koh Tao, you should reconsider it so you can stay here!
