The Place Luxury Boutique Villas
Ranked #1 of 49 Hotels in Koh Tao
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 April 2014 via mobile

My new wife and I spent our first 4 nights of honeymoon here and were thoroughly impressed by the all round effort and attitude that the team have developed.

The team have set out to create a unique blend of 5 star service and complete privacy. And they to do this with a fine balance. Very personal touches are always welcome, particularly in thailand where service is generally very good. The recommendations for local restaurants, activities and general advice were useful and very accurate. Use them as much as you can.

Attention to detail and layout of villa certainly warrant luxury. And if in any doubt, the private pool overlooking the sea help confirm the calibre of this wonderful spot.

Special thanks for Bex and Franzi for making us feel very welcome.

We stayed here for 6 nights in April 2014 and it was amazing. We stayed in villa 2 which had excellent views down the hill to the sea.

The most noticeable thing about The Place is their attention to detail, the villas have been designed to make your stay as comfortable and relaxing as possible. The staff look after you and help arrange ferry's, transfers and let you know about events happening on the island.

As some of the other reviewers have stated The Place is up a very steep hill, hence why the views are so good but if you are not the walking type this can be avoided by getting a taxi from the aptly named 'Mr Bear'.

If you are looking for a holiday to relax and forget about the daily rat race then this is The Place....

We stayed at The Place for a belated honeymoon and to celebrate my wife's birthday. Our villa had beautiful views, a lovely cooling pool and every modern appliance you could need. Unfortunately we only stayed for five days. As mentioned in previous reviews the walk to the town was easy but the return trip is a little more challenging. This is where Mr Bear comes in with his trusty taxi also at a good price!! During our five day stay we didn't see any other guests and we understand they were full. At this cost the level of privacy is outstanding. Daily we would hear from the wonderfully efficient Bex or Franzi who would enquire if we needed help organising anything for the coming day. Nothing is too much trouble. My embarrassment is slowly receding after having my suitcase carried to the ferry by a slight young lady (Bex) at her insistence claiming this was a daily workout. If you are looking for an amazing holiday this is "The Place" to go. We would like to say a BIG thank you to Bex, Franzi, Guy and all the staff. From all the hotels we have stayed at we have never returned, but this one we will.

This was the best hotel I have ever stayed in my life! My husband and I stayed in The Place Ko Tao for some days in our honeymoon in Thailand and we got impressed!

The bungalow is just amazing with a private pool, everything is so carefully arranged and decorated, the toilet is so beautiful and you can see the sea while taking a relaxing shower. It's a very romantic environment, with an unbelievable view from the room.

Besides all that, the staff is the best! Guy, Bex and Franzi are so sweet and helped us with everything we needed - picked us up at the pier, advised the best things to do in the island, helped with reservations and arrangements, booked the best massage for us. I wish I could have stayed longer in this amazing hotel, this is an experience that I will never forget and hope that I can come back soon!

Room Tip: All rooms are amazing, the hotel only has few bungalows and this make the environment more quiet and...

My husband and I stayed at The Place for 3 nights and it was simply magical! We only wished we had stayed longer. We stayed in Villa 4 which was one of the highest but so worth it for that view! The sunsets were beautiful. The whole villa was kitted out with everything you could think of and more! Bex & Franzi were so helpful and text everyday. We booked Mr Bear a few times as it is a seriously steep hill! Easier to walk down which we did a few times. You could quite easily not leave the villa and we had lunch delivered on the first day! You get a lovely welcome hamper too.. Also they had all the latest films and series on their media box. We would recommend The Gallery for dinner, the food was some of the best we had and also the Spa Aurori. The girls are lovely in there. So hope to return one day and wish Guy, Bex & Franzi all the best with their new villas. :-)

What an amazing place!! The pictures just don't do it justice ..we were met by franzie and bex at the pier with cold drinks and huge smiles..Mr bear was a welcome sight when he lugged our cases into his taxi.. On arrival at the place we were met by guy and the place team who were all waiting to welcome us to our home for the next 6 nights.. They made us feel like royalty! When we got to our villa(3) we were thrilled,there was everything you could possibly need from a huge range of DVDs to a first aid kit and everything in between!!The pool is great to dip in when you get too hot and the view is breathtaking.. We watched so many beautiful sunsets! They provide you with a mobile phone and are available 24hours a day if need be which was very reassuring!! Texts every morning with the days weather and swift replies should you need their help! They arranged restaurants for us, massages on our deck, provided snorkelling equipment and invaluable knowledge of all the best places in koh Tao.. Thank you all so much for an amazing start to our honeymoon.. We will keep the memories forever!! Very much deserved number 1 spot. Thankyou again Lauren and Alan xxx
