Reviewed 11 May 2014

This was our honeymoon destination, great little island with amazing snorkelling. Combined this with awesome accommodation = perfect honeymoon. Would highly recommend "the place" to anyone. Thanks to everyone at the place! =)

We recently stayed for 2 nights at Villa 4. The service is top notch! Bex and Franzi picked us up at the pier with smiles that brightened our day immediately.

The villa is beautiful with a great view. What's so wonderful about the place is how thoughtful the owners are in preparing everything that guests should need.(a complimentary food basket, mobile phone, movies) The only thing I think can improve our already perfect stay is a cooler air-conditioner.

Bex always answered our text promptly which we felt was really helpful in our stay. There're many little things that make us feel special like making a nameplate, preparing beach bags, sending us back home (Thanks Franzi!)

I'll definitely recommend this place to anyone coming to ko Tao.

It's difficult to add any more than what has already been said but the quality of accommodation and the level of service at The Place is truly outstanding. The villa itself is stunning with a beautiful bathroom and living space and the most amazing views from the private balcony. We didn't use the entertainment system but it has everything you could imagine in there and more and if you can think of something that hasn't been included the team will do there best to find it for you. The complimentary welcome pack is a lovely touch and the mobile phone provided was vey useful, no matter how silly a question you always got a friendly and speedy response. The team were on hand to suggest restaurants, excursions, beaches - just about anything you wanted help with. The hill is steep but we managed to get up and down each day although there's a taxi number provided in the mobile you are given. I'd recommend taking a long boat out around the island for the day and try snorkelling at different locations. This was the highlight of our three week honeymoon and we would definitely return to The Place.

Room Tip: We stayed in villa 2 and it was beautiful

We recently stayed at the Place for four nights. All previous expectations from the previous ratings were at least met, rather exceeded! The villas (in our case Villa 5) offer spectacular views over the ocean with comfortable sunbeds on the terrace. Everything about the stay is well considered. You are given a mobile phone on arrival that you can use to contact the team or to call their taxi driver, who is always friendly and extremely reliable.
Most of the facts have previously been written on the other reviews so there is not much to add.

I would just recommend you book right now and check it out yourself.. ;-))

Room Tip: Well, we did not see other rooms, but Villa 5 was perfect for us and seemed to be the most secluded...

What a truly wonderful experience. Our stay at The Place villa 2 was the highlight of our month. The perfect place to celebrate our anniversary!

The villa was beautiful, with wonderful panoramic views to the sea and as it was west facing the sunsets were spectacular, especially when watched from the privacy of our own infinity pool. The villa afforded total privacy and was very peaceful so we could completely relax.

The furnishings and decor were perfect for the settings. Floor to ceiling glass doors allowed us to wake up and lie and watch the ocean from our bed. We especially loved the outdoor style bathroom!

What struck us most was how every detail had been thought through and every amenity provided for, from a personal villa phone to a fully equipped kitchen. A directory was also provided with all the information on island activities, dining and entertainment. The choice of TV and movies was great!

A massive thank you to all the staff at The Place for making sure we had a truly unforgettable stay. We will be back!

This must be the best place to stay on Koh Tao! The wonderful view, beautiful villa and surroundings and amazing staff make this one of the best places we ever stayed. The dinner options the suggested restaurants can bring up to the villa for you are great, but you should really let mister Bear take you down the hill and try The Gallery, which had some of the best chicken cashew we ever had for a good price (ask the staff to make a reservation for you, it's popular!). And you should also try Baracuda (same here with the reservation). If we even go back to Koh Tao, we will visit The Place again, for sure :-)

Up in the mountain the villas are secluded and offer unexpected privacy.

The owners pay lots of attention to detail, i.e. providing a flash light, a complementary mobile phone with Thai SIM card, first aid kit aso. aso. Even if you might encounter little noise due to construction work around they immediately text you apologizing for the "inconvenience".

If you do not require room service no one will disturb you and you can enjoy incredible silence.
The villa provides everything you need to relax and cook whenever and whatever you want. Ice cubes in the frozer are ready to chill your drinks.
By scooter it takes 1 minute to get down to the center and get local and/or international ingredients.
By walk around 10-12 minutes.

Nevertheless: the pool on the terace, just gorgeous!

Our genuine compliments to the owners and your staff: living in Asia for many years we exactly know how hard it is to be successfull here. You made it!

If we have to mention sth. we disliked:

Nespresso capsule machine does not fit at all in an eco-friendly concept.
