The villas are very quiet, hidden in the jungle on a hill just 10 minutes walking from the small village: in any case, take a motorbike. The welcome couldn't be warmer and the staff is very nice: even if they completely disappear to leave your privacy, they are always available on the mobile to help you and solve any issue...

From the personalised, friendly pickup at the ferry terminal, to the provision of snorkeling gear at 10 mins notice - nothing was ever too much trouble for Coral, Be and Franzi. Their friendly, helpful attitudes made this fantastic place to stay even better! The Villa was incredible! Although the infinity plunge pool with ocean views was a definite highlight, the...

Luxurious villas ; amazing view. Very quiet and clean. Central place to go for restaurants / bars / beaches. Excellent idea to give a cellphone for the stay. We would recommend staying there. Hope to come back again next year. Many thanks to Bérengère and Franzi ("très sympa" !!!).

Absolutely amazing boutique villas very luxurious, gorgeous bathroom, infinity pool and views out to sea. The service was top draw and would absolutely recommend staying here. We were picked up from the boat and loved to be a little bit away from the busy restaurants/bars in Koh Tao. The perfect quiet retreat.

An amazing vista, beautiful design, very private villa. Let me be clear...stay here if you can - it is well worth the 9000bat a night (the price of a month at many of the simple rooms on the island). So why were we not overwhelmed... The a/c doesn't cool the room most of the day. The electricity is partially at...

We had the best week in Koh Tao at The Place. We stayed in Villa 5, which was roomy and had amazing views. The hotel was full during our trip, but we literally did not see a single other guest during our stay. They go to great lengths to make sure that the villas are private. The best part of...

Not much I can add to all the great reviews already! Can't believe there are people that complain about tiny issues. Yes it's up a lot of stairs and some noise from nearby bars at night but they can't help that! There's no restaurant or bar but you get great privacy, brilliant views and a service I've never seen anywhere...

We were literally blown away by this paradise from the moment we were collected by the lovely Franzi, to the moment Be and Coral dropped us off at the ferry to leave! The Place itself - is just fantastic...breathe taking views, stunning villas that feel just like a home away from home - all complete with everything you need (and...

We have just got back from the most amazing honeymoon in Thailand. We spent the last part of our trip on Koh Tao, which is a beautiful island. We chose to stay at The Place based on the reviews of previous guests and we were not disappointed. Everything was perfect from the villa, to the views, from the staff to...

Words cannot describe my love for this place. I will come back to Koh Tao soon so that I can stay at The Place again. The BEST service I've ever experienced! The girls taking care of us, Bee and Crystal, were amazing. Just take my word for it, you have to experience it for yourself! You wont regret it!

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
