When writing a review I try and look at both sides of the scale. There's always a positive - and there's always a negative. This can't be said for Baan Phu Tawan. There are no negatives - and I spent a few days trying to come up with one.

Alistair and Marie - the guys that own this place - are two of the loveliest people you can meet. From the start we had a good vibe from them - but just meeting Alistair after he met us from the airport, we knew we had made the right choice.

We booked the villa because we were getting married in Koh Samui with lots of friends and family there to join with us. We wanted somewhere we could escape if we needed to - but also for people to drop round if they wanted to see us - when we were not out in town.
The villa is located no further than 7 minutes from Fisherman's Village if you're walking, and for us Fisherman's Villiage is the best place in Samui. Incredible restaurants and bars and a really relaxed vibe, and being able to wander down whenever it suited us was perfect. Baan Phu Tawan is in a great location with a 'mini-mart' and laundry service about a 3 minute walk away, as well as 'Bophut Market' - a mini-mecca of street food where you can stock up on all the best Thai food in the world for no more than $1 a pop
.
We went out in Chaweng a couple of times and it's about 10 minutes is a cab.

For location - this place is perfect!

The photos do not do the villa justice. It is huge! You can tell as soon as you walk in that the guys have spent a lot of time and effort making this place a home-away-from-home for holiday makers.
The place is spotlessly clean - and it's laid out so that if you really wanted to spend a couple of weeks just at the villa - you could. The pool gets heaps of sun so is lovely and warm (and good for your tan!), the aircon is great and there are plenty of plates/towels/utensils/pans/everything you can think of throughout the villa.

The fridge was stocked with supplies upon our arrival - which after a 12 hour flight was a welcome treat.

The area is so peaceful and it is just the most awesome place to relax and chill out by the pool.

We actually went to Koh Tao for our honeymoon and decided to leave early to return to Samui because we loved it so much - unfortunately the villa was already fully booked out - so don't miss it! We already can't wait to go back!

Liked best: Could not say as the list is endless. Maybe the pool? Maybe the size of the accom? Maybe just the overall attention to detail and wonderful service!
Liked least: That it was fully booked when we wanted to come back :-(
