I'd recommend The Place to anyone visiting Koh Tao. Situated high in the hills, the villas are clean and well-designed with a really cool spa-type feel in the bathrooms. The infinity pool was lovely and was a great way to enhance the experience of relaxing in front of the awesome view of the sea across the treetops.
The welcome hamper was well stocked and there was even a filtered drinking water tap which was really convenient and something we haven't seen at any of the other places we stayed.
The Place have struck a nice balance between giving guests privacy while remaining available on the other end of a mobile phone (provided, which also allows complimentary personal use for local calls) and our hosts Franzie and Ellie were so friendly and could not have been more helpful.
I could go on but you get the picture. Definitely look this place up next time you're on the island and looking for a romantic place to stay.
- 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
