“Amazing!”
Reviewed 10 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We (family of 4, with 2 kids ages 7 and 11) recently left Baan Fhan Talay after a 5-night stay - and already miss it. The pictures here look great, but still don't do it justice. From the moment you walk in the front gate and walk on the steps over the coy fish pond in the entranceway, you will be in awe of the views and surroundings. The accommodations are great - the master suite (in a separate "house") looks out onto the pool which then overlooks the ocean. And, the kids loved having their own rooms, each with a private bath and balcony overlooking the ocean (and in a separate area from us, giving my wife and I much privacy). The location is also great as it is away from the busy areas of Chwang Beach and Lamai Beach, but close enough to go there if you want to see/be a part of it. We rented a car to get around and enjoyed some of the local places but also ventured to the more touristy spots. But, no matter where we went, it was always nice to get back to the villa for a swim, relaxation, drinks, etc.

Last, but not least, Jean and his staff are great! Jean was very gracious and always available whenever we needed him - including helping us arrange for a boat tour and picking up fresh mangos for us (after I mentioned how much we love the mangos). And, Ton and Mo (the villa staff who live in a separate part of the property) were very helpful making us breakfast in the morning, cooking BBQ for dinner and literally jumping to attention the moment we woke up or walked in the door to see what we may need. They even learned how to make pancakes for the kids in the morning (they had never made them before, but learned and made them as good, if not better than, any hotel.)

If you go to Koh Samui and want to enjoy it in luxury, you have found your place!

“Koh Samui's most outstanding villa”
Reviewed 16 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Eveything reaches perfection at Bann Fhan Talay .

From the location perched high above the sounds of the sea, affording it spectacular views of the ocean , to the impeccable care and attention of the staff, to the palatial and luxury accommodation in the villa, the pictures simply do not do it justice .

Highlight recommend for anyone visiting koh samui to experience a stay at Bann Fhan Talay !

“Amazing house, even better hospitality”
Reviewed 2 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We were 9 extended family members in this amazing house for five nights over New Years. The house is truly spectacular... on a hillside overlooking the ocean. All amenities are first class and the whole space works extremely well. everyone has their own space as the house is actually three buildings. The owner, Jean M is an extremely good host, available at all times to help with suggestions for activities, transport, etc. He helped us arrange a day boat trip on a catamaran to nearby island that we would never have been able to arrange ourselves. His staff lives on the property and they are super attentive in cooking breakfast and one night did a seafood BBQ for us. A stay in this villa is as close to staying at a hotel as you can come! Jean M and his wife clearly care about the experience of their guests and take pride in offering a first class service. I am already highly recommending this property to my friends.
The Villa is on the south of the island and a short walk down a (pretty steep!) hill to several beaches and also to some good restaurants and the epic "Cool Bar" on the beach that anyone staying in this property must visit.
All round an amazing stay and a first class experience.

“Wonderful villa, wonderful welcome, wonderful views - an awesome experience”
Reviewed 25 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

My friend and I stayed in. Ills Baan Fhan Talay for a few days and although I have been a few times to Koh Samui before, this has definitely been an unforgettable experience. The grounds and the views are even better than in the pictures - I will come again!
