The Place Luxury Boutique Villas are the perfect holiday destination, particularly for couples and honeymooners. Located in the heights of Koh Tao you can see both the beach, the sunset and the mountains all at once.
We were lucky enough to experience the luxury of two different styled villas over the space of four nights. Both villas shared similar designs but each had their own different perk. The first villa was named the ‘Luxury Pool Villa’ and it certainly lived up to the name. When entering the private villa we were faced with a panoramic view of Sairee beach which was surrounded by huge mountains. An infinity pool was situated in the most ideal spot to soak up the sun and enjoy the spectacular view. Our villa was perfect in size and included a kitchen with a small living area, a bedroom and a bathroom. We noticed that the staff have made a conscious effort to not only focus on the large details but also the smaller ones. An example of this was that in all villas they have their own drinking taps and we were yet to find this anywhere else. The bathroom was spacious and certainly had a real outdoor vibe with lots of plants and natural light. The second villa was the honeymoon suite and it included the only red love heart pool in the world! Just imagine relaxing in a love heart pool with your partner whilst sipping on champagne and admiring the sunset…could there be anything more romantic?
The staff were very helpful during our stay and offered great advice when required. They let us know of endless great activities and where to safely do these which was a big tick. We were also told of the free bikes available at The Place which we found we used regularly to explore the island. We received a phone to use during our stay which assisted us with cheaper taxis and takeaway foods!
The Place was extremely hard to fault and the only real critique we have is that the occasional creepy crawlies would venture into our villa. However, the staff have managed this as well as they can by providing all the repellents but nature still has a way of ending up indoors.
