We stayed here for 4 nights October 2017 and it was simply stunning. When we arrived Lamai and Bea were waiting for us at the pier with some cold bottled water which was a nice touch. They drove us to the reception where we had a welcome party from the rest of the staff. They then took us on a tour of our villa. We were staying in Villa number 1 and it was amazing. It's so private, you can see the sunset and has everything you need. We had a phone to call anyone we needed at anytime. We ordered dinner and lunch to the villa often from the local restaurants. Everyone knew where we were and spoke perfect english on the phone. It would be nice to have a few more menus. There was 5-6 there but if you're there for a week, you might need more. The food basket you get in your villa on arrival is a great little touch. It has all the basics in it. There are thousands of films to choose from. Great when you just want to relax one night. You really are in the jungle here which I didn't realise when I booked so you do get some visitors to your villa. They are harmless and normally stay up high. If I had one negative from the stay it would be these visitors. I understand smaller Geckos are going to squeeze through the smallest gaps but we had some large Geckos in our villa which I sure with a bit of work could be kept out.
On departure day we were taken down to the pier again and offered cold water and sea sickness tablets for the boat. Again, really nice touch.
This is the most peaceful and beautiful place I have ever stayed. Lamai and Bea give you the perfect balance of privacy and attentiveness. They are a credit to The Place. Would 100% return for longer next time.
- 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
