The Place Luxury Boutique Villas
Ranked #1 of 49 Hotels in Koh Tao
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 April 2014

We stayed here for 12 nights and we loved every minute of our stay.
From the outset, The booking of the hotel was easy and Guy arranged the tickets for the boat from Koh Samui to Koh Tao - he responded to our emails very promptly and was very helpful as if he was a friend awaiting our visit....
From the very first minute when we were greeted by Guy and Franzi at the pier with cold drinks which were very welcome after a very long trip to the day we left we felt really looked after in a little "place" bubble.
Our villa (villa 2) was absolutely beautiful and a little wooden plaque with our names on welcomed us on the front door of our villa (this plaque now has pride of place in our house). The villa was perfectly clean and the team had thought of everything - my other half was over the moon with the nespresso machine in the kitchen and the media centre with all the films were fantastic for those evenings when you just want to relax.
We were given a pre paid mobile phone and received a text from Franzi or Bex every morning to say hi and to tell us what the weather was going to be like and to ask us if there was anything we needed - most days there wasn't anything we needed as they had thought of everything but if we did ask for anything they would respond straightaway.
The villas are set in the hills overlooking Sairee beach so obviously to get those views you have to ascend a slope!!! and yes it was very steep but we enjoyed walking this slope for a bit of exercise and the private plunge pool in your villa is surely the best incentive for a bit of exertion!!
The team gave us a comment card at the end of our stay and we were trying to think of anything that the team could have done differently or anything which would have made our stay better but we couldn't honestly think of anything...
Guy Bex and Franzi waved us off at the pier at the end of the holiday and I can honestly say that I had a little tear in my eye as I knew we leaving the most perfect slice of paradise.
well done guys we will definitely come back :-)

Put simply, The Place is the best place I've ever stayed. The location is amazing, the design of the villas is fantastic and I just didn't want to leave. The customer service here is outstanding, you really are made to feel as if you are the most important person in the world and nothing is too much trouble. I can't recommend it highly enough and will definitely be back!

If you want to stay on the one the Thai islands, make it this one! The villa was amazing, great facilities, picturesque view. You would be hard pressed to wake up to this view anywhere else on the island.

You won't get bored at all, the beach/town is ten minute walk and you can get a taxi down if you don't feel like the walk. Perfect. And if you don't want to venture out too much, like us, we enjoyed the infinity pool, checked out an amazing collection of films! Caught up on modern family and massages/chef cooked dinner in your villa are amongst many things Franzi, Bex and Guy will sort out for you.

Service was amazing and not invasive at all. Anything we wanted was left outside our door for us so no worrying about being dressed to answer the door - hehe.

Air con is great. Mozzie net included - although we didnt get any inside the villa. Saying that you have bug spray, coils and the lot for the balcony. And great lemongrass and citronella soap which helps!!! We were absolutely fine.

Mini bar and hamper great. But food delivered to the villa door in 15 mins was so easy. We didnt cook!

Probably forgetting something but they guys here are so nice. No request is too much - they even helped us with our bags on to the seatran ferry pier and checked us in! Really appreciated that!

Wish you the best of luck and hope you keep on top of the game! Xxx

We spent 5 nights at The Place and it was amazing from start to finish. We stayed in villa number 4 and it was just incredible. The villas offer total privacy with amazing views and it's still only a short walk to the beach and restaurants. The Place was very clean and Bex and Franzi were always there to help with anything we needed. When you read all the reviews on here you sometimes wonder if it's actually going to be as good as everyone says it is....to us it was even better. The Place is number one on TripAdvisor for a reason! It's amazing and I can wholeheartedly say I will definitely do my upmost to stay at The Place again....except next time I'll make sure I stay there longer! Big thanks to Bex, Franzi and Mr Tip for making our stay unforgettable!

We spent 3 nights at the Place and the comments which had influences our choice were totaly in accordance with the reality. Whether it is the great welcome of Franzi, Bex and Guy, their availability, the quality of the service and the beautiful view since our villa. A fantastic "PLACE" of residence on this small paradise whom is Koh Tao.

We spent 10 nights at The Place for our honeymoon and it was amazing. Bungalow with a private pool, overlooking the sea, splendid!. We stayed in villa number 3 and its was incredible. The villa is very clean and the service was exceptional. Franzi, Bex and Guy are very hospitable. Only a 10 minute walk to the center and the beach. At the end of our stay, we did not want to leave!. We will definitely come back.
