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.... More

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... More

Baan Talay is situated in a truly beautiful place. Our sea-view suite was wonderful with an incredible view and large balcony area. Lounging and relaxing here on our private day-bed was a joy. The room was very clean, nicely decorated and serviced daily - and the modern indoor/outdoor shower-room was a great touch. Mimi (who runs the place) and all... More

Customer service; I think hotel should check Gas tank before our staying. My husband checked it but it is empty. So there is no water for first 2 nights. It makes me having diarrhea. There is no room cleaning and no top up toilet paper. Every time we need to ask. Room; Sea side room, it is nice view bus... More

The view at Baan Talay was absolutely stunning. We had a great, new, clean room with great balcony and bathroom. The eating area was also great with a space just next to it for yoga held once a day. Despite this, we cut our stay short here as it was very difficult to get to and from the location. It... More

We stayed 4 nights in February. Got involved in the yoga and open water course. Both were excellent! One of the most stunning views I've ever seen. Which may be a big call growing up in NZ, but there it is. The grounds are exceptionally kept. Its seems a world away from the madness of Sairee. However if you ever... More

I stayed from the 22 January 2014 until the 31 January 2014 at the Baan Talay Resort and can only recommend this place! I wished I could have stayed longer as it is remote, peaceful, beautiful and with a stunning view. There is a free taxi transfer 3 times a day which gives you the possibility to go "down town"...

My husband and I stayed there for 4 nights/days mid December 2013 (beginning of our honeymoon). Breathtaking view (on top of a hill), super nice staff, very homey feeling (common areas feel like your own), nice food and drinks. You really feel you have a classy bungalow in the trees (we had chosen the seaview suite). If you combine your... More

I recently moved to the north of Thailand and was missing the sea so I asked around for a quiet island. I'm not interested in full moon parties, drunken backpackers etc, what I wanted was peace and quiet with access to restaurants, shopping and diving. I found the perfect spot at Baan Talay. On the way from the dock the... More

Fell in love with Baan Talay the moment I laid eyes on the stunning view from both my Seaview Suite and the common chill out area. If you are looking to get away from busy city life, and also peace and quiet after a day out or diving in Koh Tao - then this is it. Complete serenity and peacefulness... More
