Beautiful place for couples. Amazing villas with beautiful panoramic view. In villa swimming pool. The staff is extremely helpful and warm BE and RACHEAL guided us in the most pleasant manner. They even provided a cell phone for daily use. A must stay. Will definitely come back. Cheers.

We spent a few days at The Place during our honeymoon last year. It is truly beautiful as the pictures indicate. There are just a few negative points I wish I had known in advance: 1- the location is not very practical. In order to reach the main beach, you have to walk for about 15 minutes and it is...

The Place more than lives up to the extremely high expectations set on tripadvisor. It also lives up to the photos...sometimes you are left underwhelmed by photos which don't match the reality - this is not the case with The Place and the sunsets are spectacular. If you don't mind a steep walk up to your room (or an expensive...

Fellow travellers have detailed the pluses which are substantial but you are paying top rates. The staff, jolly "public school girls"lacked local knowledge, made mistakes and did not brief us about the details of our transfer when we left. Local transport if you were not to hire a scooter was incredibly expensive taxis (twice the cost of a London cab)....

We recently stayed at The Place for a monumental 18 nights (well, it is a long way from U.K!) and were still very reluctant to leave when our time was up. From the minute you arrive until the minute you leave the friendliness, the fantastic service with every whim catered for with beaming smiles is second to none. If you...

We had a great stay at The Place. Rustic and charming all you could want for a private stay. We were picked up at the pier and whisked right to our villa, they really have thought of every way to make your stay comfortable and memorable. Super comfortable beds with an amazing view!

After reading all those reviews we came here with the highest expectations. And, all I can tell is: the staff even managed to surprise us. The villas all seem to be more or less the same, all you need is there, the best view (sunset sunset sunset ...), the private pool, spacious house, beautiful designed with a lot of lovely...

Traveled with my wife for a portion of our honeymoon - stayed for 4 nights, wishing we stayed for 2 weeks. This has to be one of the nicest places I have ever vacationed. Beautifully equipped villas, amazing views. Service was excellent as well - they provided transportation from the pier both on arrival and departure. Also, they will provide...

The only thing wrong with The Place is having to leave. It's a close to perfection as it gets. Wonderful staff, peace and serenity, luxury, complete privacy, great view, your own infinity pool, and it's on a great island as well. For similar / less than a Banyan Tree type of price it is so much better. Can't recommend highly...

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
