We have spent a tremendous week in Baan Manali and are definitely coming back! We’ve been to various places but Manali is just amazing. The bungalows are on the sea side, in a breathtaking bay and a beach is just 30 meters from your bed! You just feel as you’d be placed on a Photoshop postcard.
However the million dollar view and a rely high standard of bungalows and their fantastic design is not the only issue that makes your vacations at Baan Manali unique. The place is owned by a wonderful young couple – Liat and Sebastien who created this little piece of paradise. They are very friendly and charming people who since the first to the last day of your stay take care of you as you’d be their family.
Sebastien is a fan of all kinds of water sport that exists – he has catamarans, kayaks, kites, windsurfing and whatever there is – If you’re in to it you can rent it or ask him to teach you how to use it if you’re a beginner.
They also have a wonderful restaurant located just at the sea side that serves traditional Thai food. When you’re there you just got to try: coco nut shake, pineapple shake, fried rise with sea food and their sweet and sour thai soup. It is just amazing! I’ll remember those tastes for ever!
Oh! And don’t forget their alco specialty – chaipirovka!
The resort itself is located just a 5-10 minute walk from Thong Sala a very nice city with a great food market, cafes and bars, shops and everything else you might need. So when you’re at Baan Manali you can enjoy peaceful and calm time and if you feel like going out – it’s just a few steps away.
Just to summarize – we are definitely coming back!
