After travelling for around 25 hours we were met at the pier by Rachael and Coral and presented with an ice cold bottle of water. Our bags were taken from us and loaded into the taxi and we joined them for the short ride to The Place. Upon arrival at reception we were greeted by all the staff, who were...

We stayed at The Place for our honeymoon and loved it! It is set on a hill close to the action, but away from the noise. Rachel was our concierge and she was amazing! We loved the views and the fact it was eco friendly. The only downside was it was away from the beach, and when we went down...

This is one of the few places I've stayed in my life where my expectations were exceeded. Our villa itself was wonderful, with amazing views of the sunset every evening, a strikingly beautiful bathroom, a clean and well-maintained swimming pool, and a little kitchen with everything you might need. Coffee-maker in particular was a god-send, as were the hotel snorkels...

We had the most magical stay here at 'The Place', the staff were incredibly friendly and supportive. The accommodation was like nothing we had ever experienced and it made our honeymoon truly special. We have already decided to return next April!

We had a truly lovely stay at The Place! If you're looking for privacy and relaxation this is, literally, THE PLACE. Each of the villas are completely separated from the next and offer true tranquility. We stayed in Villa 8 - it was well decorated, clean, and offered fantastic views of the Gulf of Thailand. The private pool is a...

I am sitting on my deck in Villa 7 after spending four amazing days here. What can I say? It's even nicer than the pictures. The service is incredible and this is an absolute paradise. A short walk to the town will provide you with excellent restaurants, fruit stands, etc. We borrowed a blender and had fresh fruit smoothies in...

Lovely place, great service. We were greeted with a warm welcome at Mae Haad pier by Be & Rachael, & made to feel like VIP's when we arrived at 'The Place' as the staff were lined up to welcome us! The views were fantastic from our villa (4) looking down and across Sairee beach in the distance. Star gazing from...

Beautiful, secluded and luxurious. The rooms are gorgeous, the private pool is fantastic and the island of Koh Tao is incredible. Just to address some negatives reviews quick: -Yes, the hotel is on top of a steep hill and just out of walking distance of town. The elevation adds to the view and the distance from town creates privacy. These...

My wife and I stayed 4 nights in Koh Tao and at the Place Villas. It was a fantastic villa with great views, privacy, friendly and helpful hotel staff and an overall great stay. The location was walking distance to the beach and most shops/restaurants are easy to get back to at night via taxi, which we would recommend as...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)

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
