“Fabulous Honeymoon.”
Reviewed 30 August 2014 via mobile

We stayed for 4 nights on our honeymoon. Our expectations were high from many amazing reviews and we weren't disappointed. We found it hard to leave the Villa, as everything you could think of or need is there. Even down to the reading light beside the bed. For those nights in, there is a MASSIVE amount of TV shows and movies stored on your TV. The kitchen has everything you could think of and the take away menus are fabulous if you want a night in. The food was delivered quickly and still piping hot! Franzi, Ellie and Bex were only a phone call away if you had a question or concern. Snorkelling gear was available to borrow and a list of available activities is in a binder in the kitchen. Not only was it the amazing villa but the service by Franzi, Ellie and Bex that made our stay magnificent.

After reading all the great reviews on TA, my husband and I booked 6 nights at The Place and what a wonderful time we had! Everything went really smoothly right from the initial booking with Guy to when we (sadly) had to leave. It was just brilliant and exceeded our expectations and they were pretty high! Having done quite a bit of travelling over the years, we thought The Place offered fantastic value for money. We received a very warm welcome from Ellie at the Pier and on arriving at the Villa (Villa 1) we were blown away by the beautiful views, pool, loved the sign outside with our names on (nice to take home) and the gorgeous villa equipped with everything we could possibly need. Thanks so much to both Ellie and Franzi for the incredible service provided - nothing was too much trouble for them during our stay and they were so friendly and helpful - really seemed to go out of their way to make sure we were happy. We were given a mobile phone and each morning would receive a text message giving us weather forecast for the day and to see if we needed anything - lovely touch! On arrival we found a welcome hamper with eggs, bread, milk, pasta and cereal and we really did appreciate the filtered water tap which is not something usually provided. There were adaptors everywhere in the villa and the bathroom was gorgeous - very different! The wines in the mini bar were very reasonably priced and there was even a Nespresso machine. The villas are very private, very well equipped and spotlessly clean in an idyllic setting in the hillside yet a short 10 minute walk to Sairee Beach and the restaurants. After staying in hotels where you have to be at breakfast by 10.00 am and housekeeping in every day, it was so lovely to be able to totally relax as housekeeping was every 3 days (unless you want it every day) and we enjoyed ordering breakfast in from Zanzibar most days and only took 10-15 minutes to arrive. The wines/beers in the mini bar were very reasonably priced and there was a Nepresso machine. A big highlight was having Chef Ed Jones from Barracuda Restaurant come in and cook us a beautiful seafood platter one evening (thanks for organising this Bex!) - can highly recommend this as it was a fabulous experience to eat watching the sunset on the deck. Ellie came in to set up the table with candles while Ed cooked - just perfect! We also thought the island of Koh Tao was very special - thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and met some really nice people while out and about and could actually tear ourselves away from the villa!
Yes The Place ticks all the boxes - our only downside was having to leave! We wont hesitate to recommend The Place to friends and family and we definitely intend to go back - why stay anywhere else - its perfect!

As the final destination on our honeymoon, my wife and I spent 3 nights at The Place and it exceeded our expectations. Every possible attention to detail has been covered by the team and the accommodation and service really is 5*, which is particularly remarkable considering the size and amenities of Koh Tao. Guy, Bex, Franzi & Ellie really do go out of their way to make sure that every aspect of your stay is perfect and they thoroughly deserve all of the excellent reviews and awards. An idyllic setting and first class luxury villas, The Place must surely be the best accommodation available on the island. We would love to stay here again and highly recommend it to anyone. Well done and thanks, Stuart & Emma

Do you really need to be sold on this place? The Place was where we spent 3 nights for our honeymoon, and literally have never been so blown away by a hotel. The staff were very friendly, had cold water for us when we got off the boat from Samui, so they already won our hearts with that! When we got to the hotel, it was private and big! The pool was perfect, we were able to actually swim in it! It was the perfect size for two people. You are given a cell phone to contact staff if you need anything, as they don't bother you unless you want them to. If we needed anything at any time they would text back immediately, and be up with anything we needed in less than 10 minutes. We had a massage on our balcony, and a private chef come to our villa to cook us dinner. If there is one activity you do there, please have the chef cook you the seafood platter. It was HUGE and so delicious!! It was great having privacy when we wanted it and prices were very reasonable for their wine & spirits selection. Would 100% stay here again and recommend it to everyone who goes to Ko Tao! THANK YOU The Place for the most amazing experience! Amelia & Michael

My wife and I recently spent 6 nights of our honeymoon in Koh Tao and The Place lived up to our expectations. The discrete, yet thoughtful and comprehensive service of Bex, Franzi, Ellie and Guy was perfect - extremely friendly and helpful. The attention to details is great, and it is hard to see how anyone could not enjoy staying there. Highly recommended for a romantic getaway. Thanks again from Ryan and Karolina
