I moved to Bangkok last year and after a couple of months I had to get out of the busy city for a couple of days! Koh Samet is close (just takes 3-4hours from BKK) so I decided to go there.
A friend told me about Baan Puu Paan and I called on my way over there to make a reservation. I have not regreted it for a second! I got the smaller fan bungalow on stilts, nicely decorated and it felt cozy arriving there in the evening, the staff was so sweet and welcoming! But when I woke up early the next day and pulled away the curtain- I was blown away! Every bungalow has lots of windows facing out towards the water. That and the delicious baguettes and good coffee makes a terrific start of the day!!!
The location of Baan Puu Paan is also great! If u turn left when leaving the pier youre going towards the nat.park, and that is the wrong way!!! Turn right instead and keep going for a couple of minutes til you reach the place. Here its calm and relaxing, hardly any traffic and you will go to sleep hearing only the sounds of waves rolling in beneath you.
Even if u decide to stay at another place (u shouldnt)I highly recommend going here for dinner...lunch...breakfast or all of the above! =) Find your own or try my favourites, the smoked salmon baguette with cream cheese for lunch or sauteed NZ mussels with bearnaise sauce (starter) and the fettucine with seafood and yellow curry cream sauce for dinner!!! In the evening the put out nice thai-beds, tables and lanterns on their own private pier wich is perfect for a romantic/cozy dinner!
BPP is a small place and you can feel it in the atmosphere- the staff is really helpful, friendly and serviceminded and Lizzie (the owner) will for sure welcome you in the most warmhearted way! She is also great company, funny, honest, always positive and full of life! On my last visit she said "I always do things as it is my first time- thats how I wanna live my life". You never know what comes up next and I always get happily surprised! =)
Its the whole package! Relaxing-romantic-not far away from the party-good food- and beautiful surroundings! I love koh samet and I love Baan Puuu Paan
