Potentially a wonderful island BUT accomodation is poor and falling apart. Sinks blocked, smelly loos, beach bar basically just a shack. Batman more interested in his Samsung Smart Phone than his job. Food ok but lukewarm. Plentiful though. Island prices ok. Lots of garbage laying around. Fast speedboat transfer to and from the island. We were a bit disappointed as... More

I had a delightful stay at Koh Talu all inclusive island Resort. Visitors are escorted to and from the island via a private resort launch. My accommodations were really nice: very spacious attached bungalow with private outdoor shower. All meals were served buffet style; lunch was especially good. There seem to be a large number of day trippers there for... More

While Koh Talu is a private island resort, it never claims to be a 5-star resort and travelers should not expect the amenities of one. This is a small island about 20 minutes by boat from Bang Saphan. Very convenient if you are in Hua Hin. You are essentially paying for the proximity to the mainland, wonderful seclusion, and great... More

What a shame that this heavenly island with so much to offer is in such desperate need of repair and refurbishment. Bannisters not attached to anything, steps missing, wiring looked positively terrifying and 4 hours a day there was no electric, coffee in the room but no kettle, boat engines in difficulty both journeys (different boats). Rooms were clean, had... More

We visited Koh Talu a few years ago and happened to need a stopover going South, so decided on Koh Talu once again. And it didn't disappoint. The resort is in fairly good shape, especially the beach huts are great. The snorkeling tours are as great as we remembered them and this time we had the added benefit of a... More

It was easy and inexpensive to get to and from Bangkok using the transportation arranged by the resort. To get tjere, we took a train to Hau Hin (just for the experience) and then a resort coach the rest of the way. To get back, we were driven in a private car arranged by the resort. We stayed in an...

We booked Ko Talu because we were searching for some good comfort, good and high quality rooms - as we saw on the pictures - and to spoil our selfs a little. The rooms: After seing the pictures of the rooms and the surrounding (and the expensive price!) we thought that we definetly will get some high standard holidays on... More

It's only 5 hours drive from Bangkok, plus 15 minutes by Resort boat, leaving daily at 10AM. So, the night in the bungalows by the peer is practically a must, dinner and breakfast available. On the island there is one resort only on two bays, 1 restaurant and 1 bar. The beach is idyllic, even though there is not much... More

Koh Talu is a beautiful island with very few tourists. We visited in the beginning of January and loved the island and the service. It offers allinclisive holidays, which means that all the meals and soft drinks and activities are included in the package. Activities include snorkeling, squid fishing, hiking, kanoes, etc. The staff is very nice and they try... More

One of Thailand's last paradise. Amazing and a perfect place for slowing down. A bit unorganized, but charming. Perhaps one of the best beaches of Thailand, no motorboat-noise, mostly less then 10 people in several hundred meters distance. Very nice jungle-walk up to the top of the island, with phenomenal view. I love this place!
