This is one of the most beautiful, peaceful and friendly places I have ever stayed at. If you are looking for somewhere secluded then look no further than Baan Talay. I simply do not understand some of the reviews here, particularly related to the staff. The ladies working at the resort are lovely and can not do enough to help;... More

We booked our stay in Koh Tao directly with the hotel, and we arrived there after twenty days spent roaming Thailand from Bangkok to Ayutthaya, Erawan National Park, Kampheng Phet, Lampang, Sukhotai, Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, trekking in the jungle, internal flights, long hours on buses, scorching ferries etc.... When we entered the premises, my son looked at me and... More

1.5 stars for the rude, untrained and provincial staff. They are annoyed by any request and will laugh and talk among themselves in Thai when asked a question. Only one speaks English sufficiently, for instance the word " tea pot " is not understood by most. Loud construction noise! Beware of the bungalow highest up the hill. Workers blabber and... More

Our stay at Baan Talay in Koh Tao had a rough start. We had been on Koh Tao for a few weeks at this point and we made the trek over to Mae Haad where we waited for a while for the driver to pick us up because they offer free transportation to the hotel from the pier. (NOTE: This... More

Our stay at Baan Talay was such a mess. As we arrived, I called them to pick us up as we have free pick up transfer. The driver was supposed to arrived in 15 min, he arrived after 45min. As we knew the place is a bit far and in the hills, we asked the driver if they have scooters... More

I stayed here for 4 nights. Wow! I highly recommend it. The rooms are private, hut-style and very beautiful. The views from the balcony are incredible. There's a hammock for each hut. They provide mosquito repellent coils and tea light candles as well as a really nice mosquito net over the bed. There are quite a lot of bugs so... More

We loved this place so much. The only negative thing if any, was the amount of steps to walk up and down each day and night. It def isnt that fun at night after drinks. But besides that everything was perfect. The Bungalow was so beautiful with amazing views. I could wake up to that every morning for the rest... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here over New Years. Not really knowing much about Koh Tao or Baan Talay we were pleasantly surprised upon seeing the little treasure (that is the island and the resort). The island itself is tiny and as best as we can tell, was the most comfortable we felt in all our locations in Thailand (despite... More
