Spent an absolutely wonderful 4 nights here in mid-October. Nothing could have been more perfect. The wooden name plate on the gate is such a nice touch and will be a great souvenir forever. Coral and Be were so welcoming and kind and although we never really needed to contact them as everything was so perfect we knew we were...

This was one of the most amazing places we've stayed at, one that we'll never forget. Definitely the highlight of a month long Thailand trip. We were in villa #2. Stunning water views, great private plunge pool to relax in, and a fantastic private deck overlooking lush greenery and the bay. The villa itself has a kitchen with all the...

Just perfect... Private, personal and luxurious without being pretentious. They have seriously thought of everything you ever wanted or didn't even know you wanted whilst on holiday. From your own mobile phone, keys with a torch for the walk home, to the welcome hamper with stuff to make dinner if you want. The effort put into to the small stuff...

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon and couldn’t be happier with our decision. From the moment the staff came to pick us up we knew we were in good hands. When we arrived at our villa, things only improved. Some resorts are better in pictures online than in real life - this is not one of those...

We don't splurge on our accommodations often, so The Place was a treat! The best part was that the price, even though higher than other places on the island, was a GREAT value. My first reaction, as we arrived at Villa #2 was "oh my gosh, the website photos were right on!" I couldn't believe how "true" they were to...

A fantastic stay, exceeding all expectations. The villas are amazing in all aspects and would gladly have spent more time there. Everything was brilliantly thought of, from arrival to departure. Great staff and great communication. The Place is the perfect retreat for couples. I'm already trying to figure out how to go back! A million thanks to Be, Coral and...

Genuinely the nicest place I've ever been in my entire life. From the moment we arrived, to the very second we left the property, we were treated like royalty (and I am far from it!). The staff were a different breed of human, and I mean that in the greatest of respects. They were friendly, helpful, talkative, everything you'd want...

From the moment we stepped foot on the island we were greeted with a friendly smile by Be, cold towels, cold water and a nice, cool and comfortable ride up into the hills of Koh Tao to the amazing villas. When we actually got there, everything was jaw-droppingly beautiful - from the amazing and stylish villa, to the private infinity...

The Place was magical... We won 3 nights in a fundraiser lottery, which tells you how kind and generous the owners and staff are... We had 3 amazing days there, the private pool was gorgeous, the whole inside of the villa absolutely charming, bathroom enchanting... it's definitely like walking into paradise.. it's so quiet and peaceful that you feel that...

We were traveling as a family and so it was a little more money than as a couple, but as a couple it is really worth it. Very nice villas and super friendly and helpful staff. The only thing is the distance to the beach, but if you rent motor-bikes (Coral and Be will arrange it), it is no more...

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
