My girlfriend and I spent 4 nights at the Place at the end of a 3.5-week backpacking trip through Vietnam and Thailand and it could not have been a more perfect luxurious finish to our vacation, especially after weeks of rugged travel. We knew we were reaching in terms of price when we booked but it was 100% worth it.
The villa itself made my jaw drop--every detail seemed designed for comfort and aesthetics. The view from the deck and pool was breathtaking. The service was incredible--Lamai was helpful and fun, and all interactions with Carol and Be were wonderful as well.
The villas are located a bit outside of the main road, but the distance is easily walkable, just be aware that the road up to The Place is extremely steep. Renting a motorbike made everywhere on Koh Tao reachable in minutes.
Really I can't name one thing that makes The Place the best place I've ever stayed (ok maybe the pool) but I can say that it was so nice that we almost didn't want to leave the villa, despite being in the middle of the paradise of Koh Tao.More
