“Relaxed, clean and good location”
Reviewed 30 December 2013 via mobile

Stayed here with for 3 nights at the end of our holiday. Overall the resort is certainly good enough if you're looking for a mid-range price, quiet location and clean / sizeable rooms. We were paying £30-35 on the other islands and did end up booking quite late. Our room was near £80 a night but for that we got improved accommodation..

The rooms are very clean and spacious, folded towels and a full minibar was a site we hadn't seen since back on the mainland! The staff are friendly and happy to help with any needs. The breakfast (like most places we've been too) is OK, they will cook you fresh eggs to your style and the bacon is pretty good - otherwise the rest is continental. The bathroom was nice and big, the shower wasn't the best but we've come to expect that in Thailand! Our room came with a balcony that didn't have a direct "beach view" but you could see it through the rest of the resort.

It's location in Mae Nam sits it close to a few little restaurants worth visiting - Barracuda (European food) and Zenzibar (Thai / other)

Couple of tips if you do book - the resort will run you to the airport for 300b - 150b cheaper than the taxi rank next door.

Close to the beach in a quiet area of Mae Nam on Koh Samui. The rooms were clean with good air conditioning and having breakfast included in the price made it very good value in my opinion. We paid 1,200 Baht for a double room with breakfast for 2 people. Outside the hotel there are plenty of restaurants and bars and there are several beach-side places which were very nice.

One thing that amused us was that every hotel we stayed in on Koh Samui tried to tell us that there was only 1 room left but in fact there were several available so don't be shy in asking to see a couple of them or trying to get one of the ones that overlooks the sea.

Room Tip: Try and hold out for a beach facing room if you can. If none are available then the hotel has 2 or 3...

This place is really a little gem in paradise.
Now for an opinion from a english guy.....
It is realtivley cheap and is in Mae Nam and is very close to the pier/ ferry .. about 10 mins in a cab costing around 150 baht or 5€, who can complain at that and the Hotel will provide a taxi for free but we had freinds so a cost was involved.
We moved here due to a conflict with another Hotel in Mae nam and were peasently suprised , the rooms are modern , aircon is briil and the rooms are big and clean as is the bathroom.
The staff are exceptionally good in comparison to the Hotel we stayed in managed by a Swiss guy .
About 50 meters , if that from the most wonderfull private section of the beach , sunbeds included free for the guests as is breakfast which was very good .
The owner even sent a a car to the old hotel to pick up our luggage for free , very very helpfull and i do recommend it , but of course if you want 5 star for 3 times the price you will find that.

Reviewed 25 January 2012

We stayed one night at the Baan Fah since we arrived late to Koh Samui and were traveling to Koh Phangan the morning after. For this reason we wanted a hotel as close to the pier as possible and BF sounded perfect with the stated 100m.
Unfortunately there we two faults:
1. It is not even close to the pier (2km), which we learned from the front desk when asking how to get to the ferry next morning. (Closest hotel to Lompraya pier is instead Coco Palm Resort, which would have been perfect for this purpose.)
2. We arrived on a Thursday, and every Thursday evening there is a street party on the two streets right above the BF hotel. Nice in a way, but this meant our taxi could not drive us closer than 400m from the entrance. Bit disappointing when you have been traveling for 24h and have heavy luggage to carry.
Luckily the hotel was kind enough to send a man to help carry some luggage, so at least my wife could take care of the kids, and only I had to carry full load.
Hotel itself was as headline suggests, okay. Since we were only sleeping overnight we booked a standard room, which it very much was. In other words clean but not very nice. Breakfast rather thin, but offered toast, coffee/tea and some bananas.

We stayed in the Honeymoon suite at the Baan Fah resort for 11 nights. The room was stunning, clean and exactly as described on their website. The private balcony had sun loungers, table and chairs, overlooking the beautiful 2 km white sand Maenam beach which is one of the quietest and laid back beach on the island. The beach area in front of the hotel was cleaned every morning by the owner and his son. The staff at the resort were very friendly and helpful, nothing was ever too much trouble. Maenam itself is a very quiet resort, there are a few restaurants (would recomend the Seaview restaurant) and bars along the beach, but not much else in the way of shops. We hired a scooter for just 200 baht per day so getting around to other villages was not a problem. Excellent ferry service from the beach to Koh Phangan.
