My wife and I stayed here for the second part of our honeymoon and really wish we'd stayed for all of it! It's difficult to list all the little things that came together to make our stay so great, but most of our welcome to the villa was filled with us both constantly saying: "Wow!", "Oh wow!, or, "Cool!"
The set up that Guy and Bex have at The Place is seamless and the little details make your stay more hassle free than you can imagine: all of the facilities in the villa from nespresso machine to tons of music and movies for every taste - if you even get the chance to enjoy them; the little welcome starter basket of food; the really well stocked mini-bar; the perfect level of contact with the team - you can have as much or as little service as you want; mobile phone to get takeaway meals if you fancy a night in; just everything!
The location is absolutely wonderful and the infinity plunge pool makes the most of it! I couldn't believe how secluded we felt in our villa - we stayed in Villa 1, I think there are about 9? - and felt like we were the only people for miles around and couldn't see any of the other buildings.
We were met by Guy, Bex, Franzi, and their driver Mr Bear at the boat pier for the quick journey up to the villas. This was a lovely touch and throughout our stay we were really impressed with the whole team.
Koh Tao is such a lovely island - very chilled out, with nice bar and restaurants and lovely beaches. Obviously it's the dive mecca of the Gulf of Thailand and when you get in the water you'll realise why. It's literally like diving in an aquarium.
All in all, a fantastic set-up that puts you at its heart and makes sure you enjoy your holiday. We loved it!
- 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
