Well, I had been keeping an eye on TA reviews and they certainly were correct. Guy was exceptionally helpful prior to our arrival assisting with the tricky ferry company and purchasing tickets on our behalf.
On arrival Guy and Bex (gorgeous couple) greet you like long lost relatives then after a quick ride in the back of Mr Bear's taxi, and I mean open air back (great fun!), you arrive at your villa, which is 'yours' for the duration - your names are on the gate!
The Place is perfect for a quiet, relaxing, private, romantic getaway to unwind from life but is also just a short walk to Sairee village, if you want more. The two very steep hills close to The Place may test a few but that's where Mr Bear can help with a quick phone call on the mobile provided. We walked in the day waving to the very friendly locals and taxied back in the evening.
Franzi is an absolute delight too, well, the whole team are so compatible, amicable and go out of their way to be as helpful as they can, however, they are happy to leave you alone if that's what you prefer.
Absolutely loved our 30th anniversary holiday time there, would definitely go again and recommend to any age couples to add to your bucket list.
- 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
