While we were in Koh Tao we were lucky enough to stay at The Place. These lovely boutique villas with private decks and swimming pools looking out over the most incredible view of Koh Tao made for one of the most unforgettable stays we’ve ever had.
From the moment we were picked up by the staff we received such a warm welcome, and knew that this was going to be a real treat. The villa really exceeded our (already high) expectations. The photos speak for themselves with how beautiful everything was. Some aspects we especially loved were the welcome basket full of goodies in the kitchen, the bathroom (which was semi-outside) was definitely the nicest bathroom we have ever used, and the bed (and pillows) which were so comfy that they’ve ruined normal beds for us!
We had never had a private pool before, so having our own deck and pool with such an incredible view at The Place was amazing! Although The Place was only about 10 minutes from the Sairee beach area, we couldn’t help but spend the majority of the days chilling on the sun beds and beanbags on our deck and in the pool, listening to music through the awesome speaker system. There were lots of delivery menus too which helped us with staying put – getting pizza delivered to the pool was a highlight.
Our favourite time of day is always sunset, and the sunsets from the The Place were unreal! We had the perfect view as the sky turned pink, it was definitely the best place to have a few sundowners.
We had the most incredible stay at The Place, and we can’t recommend it enough if you’re going to Koh Tao! Thanks again to the amazing people running and working at The Place for having us and making us feel so at home.
