“Amazing Sunset”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

Be sure to drive up here for a truly stunning sunset. There's a huge rock to sit on that overlooks the jungle/village and a huge expanse of water. Sit in silence and enjoy the serenity. Come earlier in the day to stroll the leafy grounds and see the temples. Just be aware that from the 10th-20th every month there is a silent meditation retreat so the foreigners you see will probably be in silence. :)

“An Authentic Buddhist Monastery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

A lovely gem of serenity minutes away from the madness of the commercial part of the island. One of the best places for Westerners to discover the essence of vipassana meditation.

“A good walk and a magnificent view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

Once you finally make it to the temple on top of the mountain the reward is amazing. The view over Ban Tai is phenomenal. On a clear day you can see Samui, and Ang Thong as well. Be respectful tho, it is a monastery and a retreat for mediationers.
