My husband and I stayed at The Place for 3 nights as part of our honeymoon this week. We couldn't fault The Place and service we received. We were met from the boat by Be and Franzi who welcomed us and led us to our 10min taxi ride with Mr Bear to The Place which is high up in the... More

If you're looking for a luxurious stay with incredible service, look no further! These self-catering villas are perfectly set on top of a very steep hill with beautiful views. From before our arrival, all the way through until we left, the team at The Place were at our very beck and call! If you needed taxis, groceries, massages or day... More

We fell in love with The Place and Koh Tao last year and decided to come back for a well-needed, 1 week holiday. We chose The Place because it is perfect and it still is! We were greeted once again at the ferry by smiles and a bottle of ice cold water. Whisked off to our private villa and welcomed... More

My husband and I were after some relaxation and after reading the high recommendation from trip advisor we decided to give 'The Place' a try. We stayed for over a week in May, a scorching time to come and could have easily spent the entire time relaxing at our villa enjoying the seclusion and infinity pool! Franzi and the girls... More

We spent a fortnight here for our honeymoon and it was perfect. Totally relaxing, luxurious, private and comfortable. Would recommend to anyone, and were so glad we decided to spend our entire honeymoon here instead of travelling around. It was everything we hoped it would be. Villa 1 was exceptional, with a huge comfy bed, folding floor to ceiling windows... More

The Place is aptly named. Anything you could ever want in terms of service, view, privacy, luxury and convenience, you will find at The Place. Coral and Be were fantastic. So friendly and helpful and there at all hours of the day to help with your any need, which made our honeymoon so enjoyable and worry free. You are great... More

It's difficult to write a review for "The Place" since everything was almost perfect... Basically the villas are gorgeous, the view is incredible, the staff is always ready to answer to ANY of your requests, or give you good advice. It is close enough to the city center to get the animation and far enough to be very quiet. We... More

We had a fantastic time at The Place. The villa was beautiful, the pool was comfortable, and the view was perfect. We had lots of privacy, yet whenever we needed anything, we could just send a text. The recommended restaurants delivered quickly and the food was amazing.

This was the second time i have stayed at The Place, the absolute attention to details and the friendliness of the staff was once again the highlight of our stay. The rooms were clean, very practical and perfectly well equipped with pretty much everything you could expect from a tropical luxury villa. I love how the semi-open bathroom was built... More

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
