We had 5 nights at Baan Talay and really enjoyed ourselves. It’s not without its quirks but it’s friendly, clean and very well located indeed.
Our “bungalow” (it was joined to other “bungalows”) was located half way between the main road and the pool. It was quiet (we slept really well) and very comfortable – big bed, tea and coffee, good shower, big tv. The more expensive pool view rooms looked great and were far enough away from the pool for noise not to be much of an issue.
The resort is small and is located on the quieter south end of Chaweng. It’s right on the beautiful beach with its warm sea and fine white sand. We’d walk up the beach daily and feel happy we were at Baan Talay as many other resorts were much noisier and didn’t look as nice.
Breakfast was fairly good – a mix of hot and cold dishes and in a stunning sea view set-ting. Wifi is free everywhere (a bit flaky in our room) and fast enough. One minor criti-cism was, when there was a power cut on the island, they only had one fan in total. In temperatures like they are at night in Samui, this wasn’t good.
As with many places, beach beds get “reserved” which may cause some an issue. There always seemed to be room round the lovely pool area though.
Tip – the restaurant has some beds overlooking the sea and these are seldom used. We used them all the time and they have lovely views, good wifi and the end two even have a power socket if needed.
An enjoyable stay and would return.
