Welcomed in person with a pre-arranged taxi waiting for us, we left the crowds of Koh Tao behind us and quickly arrived at the idyllic setting of The Place. Wow! What a view! What a setting! Stunning villa! This is definitely the most luxurious place we have ever stayed, and we couldn't have been more comfortable and relaxed during our stay.
The villa set-up is top notch: awesome huge bed looking directly out at the view which is framed by the trees; really clean and modern finish; great entertainment system - loads of movies and music; perfect outside space w pool and v comfy loungers; lovely bathroom.
Guy and Bex were available during the stay when we needed them (loved the personal mobile on arrival btw) for resto/massage info etc., but left us to ourselves otherwise which is exactly what we wanted: peace and quiet with the best view we found in Koh Tao. We loved the rainforest coming alive after dark and felt a bit like we were sitting on the deck of a luxury boutique treehouse.
Thanks very much guys. We'd recommend The Place to anyone (already have...). and we'll def be back again soon. Cheers.
- 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
