The villa was beautiful, with an amazing view. Ideal for couples as it is very private and secluded. Staff were friendly and very helpful. The only negative is that we would of liked to be closer to the beach. Would recommend hiring a bike.
The Place might literally be my favorite place on Earth. The rooms are extremely nice, the in room pool is amazing, the staff is second to none, and the views are incredible. Within minutes of checking in we were discussing altering our trip plans so...More
Unforgettable… Reception worthy of the kings, with the extreme kindness of the three girls of the hotel (Coral, Rachael and Be), via the fantastic villa, our stay of a few days was in any PERFECT point. All the details are thought and anticipated, and "The...More
The villas are absolutely amazing. Every detail had been thought of for every aspect of the trip. Native English speakers were waiting for us at the dock when we arrived at the pier. We were shuttled to The Place and promptly showed to our villa....More
The villa are even better that I expected! Upon arrival staff were lined up to show you to you room (they picked us up at the pier as promised). Rachel walked us through the ins and outs of the room (how to use things, where...More

We just got back from our honeymoon and stayed there. If you walk to the closest beach it's about 15 minutes. They also offer bikes you can ride at no charge. We rented one of their scooters to use during our stay which made access to ALL parts of the island a breeze. Their cost was a bit more than some places on the island but a much safer bet since many of the places on the island will scam you and try to charge you for the tiniest of scratches that may have already been there. I think the cost translated to less than $15 dollars a day which is about the same price a taxi would charge you for both ways to any one location. Long winded I know, but hope it helps

Taxis on Koh Tao are very expensive in relation to cost vs distance travelled. We have negotiated better rates from one taxi driver. His taxi from our Villas to Sairee is 200 THB until 8pm then increases to 300 THB afterwards. Local taxis found in Sairee can be more.
We have had hundreds of guests that haven't rented a scooter and have had no problems. A scooter is a good idea though as it helps you explore the island without having to rely on taxis. You can always park the scooter at the bottom of our hill.
Only the last 100m of the 5 minute walk is unlit at night but your villa has a small torch which you can take with you. Taxis are available from anywhere on Koh Tao.
We hope that helps.
Taxis are not cheap and I believe it was 400 baht to/from town in the evening and taxis are always readily available. The walk is not well lit but we carried a flash light at all times. The villa is up a fairly... More
Taxis are not cheap and I believe it was 400 baht to/from town in the evening and taxis are always readily available. The walk is not well lit but we carried a flash light at all times. The villa is up a fairly steep hill so if you are physically fit, you can do the walk back to the villas in about 15 minutes. It would be a fairly easy scooter ride as well.
