When we arrived our ferry was over two hours late and we really appreciated when Baan Talay contacted us during the day to make sure everything is alright. We had a pick up service in the harbour which was great as the hustling when the ferry arrives is always a mayhem. We stayed ten days in a suite and I...

We spent 10 days in magical Baan Talay, and I can say the resort was by far the best part of Koh Tao! We had deluxe hut with seaview, which was one of the nicest rooms I have been to in Thailand with absolutely breathtaking views, ultra comfortable terrace and very stylish outdoor bathroom. Room was also decorated with very...

The Resort is definitely one of the best places to relax on Koh Tao. The "huts" are lovely furnished and well equipped with cosy beds, fresh linens, balcony with hammock and sea view. The restaurant is located on a big terrace, the food is delicious and vegetarian options available. Although the resort is located on a hill outside of town,...

Greetings, I stayed at the Baan Talay for a few nights ( 5 or 6 ) while i was getting my open water diving certification with the New Heaven Diving school, and i really enjoyed my stay there, the location is on the other side of the island, far from all the noise, its perfect for someone looking to relax...

During our dive course, we stayed at the Baan Talay resort. The rooms were situated in the middle of the jungle with nature at every angle and a beutiful view of the ocean from the balcony. The rooms have an outdoor shower with hot water and fans that are more than adequate to cool you down throughout warm nights. The...

Read the other reviews, the place is stunning, romantic and quiet. But reviews are to explain "other" facts which are usually not told. First drawback (and as it seems it has happened to other people), we also did not get the "free" ride to the resort, in spite they knew we were arriving on that late ferry from Samui. The...

We chose Baan Talay as we wanted a bit more of the rustic experience and it was a breath of fresh air from the commercial resorts on Samui and a whole lot cheaper! For a much better price we had a fantastic sea view, and some of the best snorkelling (other than Ngan Yuan)! We stayed in the sea view...

You should definatly not go to this resort! When you read the other reviews you already get a good idea about the resort. The view is really pretty but don't be fooled by the pictures. A lot of resorts on Koh Tao have beautiful views for reasonable prices, this is definitely not your best choice. The huts are simple and...

This is our second time at beautiful Baan Talay. Yet again, we have loved everything about this place. Sure, if you want a pool, a sandy beach, or walking access to nightlife, you will be disappointed. But if you want jaw-dropping views, gorgeous accommodation (at a jaw-droppingly good price), and amazing food, then I reckon this is hard to beat....

We stayed here for 3 nights only and at the end we were all sad to leave such a nice place. Note, this resort is not for party goers. It is perfect for those who want some real rest and quiet after travelling in busy and crowded Thailand, enjoing the nature, views and in-room geckos. Location is far and expect...
