Rich in vegetation, the island of Koh Tao is surrounded by white sandy beaches and crystal clear, turquoise waters.
KOH TAO LOCAL CURRENCY
The villa complex is truly local so payments can only be made via the local currency the Thai baht and currently credit card payments are not accepted. There are plenty of ATMs to change money on the island but do come prepared. The hotel can arrange for payments to be made via PayPal if preferred.
Rates at the villa complex are circa £183.00 per night based on a couple sharing a king sized bed and luxury pool villa.
THE PLACE KOH TAO, SUPPORT FOR ENVIRONMENTAL CAUSES
The Place Koh Tao is committed to environmental issues and participates in a number of the island’s Save Koh Tao environmental and sustainability causes in order to contribute towards building a stronger local community and improve the usage and deployment of natural resources on the island. With this commitment, the villa complex is able to contribute towards the creation of a more sustainable ecosystem and environmentally friendly island. The villa complex contributes to these goals by using eco-friendly products, capturing and using rainwater, recycling, re-using scrap paper and employing line drying laundry techniques.
