Our annual trip was cut short this year as the UK government advised tourists to return home. We still managed to get a weeks break at a Rung Arun which was wonderful as always. Everyone at a Rung Arun was doing their best with the covid situation and taking every precaution to ensure guests safety. They refunded our unused nights before we left and even drove us to the port to catch our ferry home. We were so sorry to have to leave early, and will definitely be back at Rung Arun as soon as possible.

Our 6th year at Rung Arun. We had an amazing time as always. The beach is perfect for lounging on and is raked clean every day. The small team of staff are lovely and work really hard to please guests. Had a great nights sleep every night. There’s plenty of bars and restaurants within a short walk but far enough to not intrude on the peace. They have a small selection of western and Thai food, and a drinks fridge with very reasonable prices. Laundry prices are really cheap and charge by the Kg, dropped off at breakfast it was always back on our porch by late afternoon, beautifully folded. They will arrange very cheap car hire and ferry trips if required. It’s all absolutely perfect for us when we need a chilled out holiday. We’ve already booked for next year.

We booked the Seaview cottage for 2 nights. The resort is in a good location, but a little remote for bars, shops. Big C supermarket is nearby. The cottage was a bit back from the beach but had clear view of the beach between 2 other cottages. Wifi is inconsistent. The manager was friendly. The cottage was cleaned, but had a lot of dust on mirrors, curtain pole. What let it down was the standard of the accommodation. It had a mixture of furniture, which looked like it had come from other eras of age. The cottage needs a serious update. We wouldn't had minded if it had been cheap, but it wasn't. Shame, as it couldn't have been nice.

Located on the best (widest and cleanest) section of Ban Tai Beach is this absolute gem! Unlike other properties in Ban Tai which typically cater for the low budget travellers Rung Arung stands out in a different league with well maintained accommodation set in incredibly well kept grounds. Run by a husband and wife and with a superfriendly team of staff the hospitality is genuine and warm. The grounds and beach are continually swept and cleared of stray plants and flotsam and the rooms are discretely cleaned daily. The beach front here is by far the best section in the area. The accommodations are intentionally built to allow for a wide sandy area unlike most of the other properties which have built up to the high tide mark leaving no beach for their residents. The pool is small and clean but the sea is a few steps away with a sandy bottom and calm seas. Plenty of food available on site and on the main road outside of the resort. This place differs from most resorts in that the prices for massages and food onsite are the same as outside on the main road. For watersports, just next to the resort to the right is Breeze surf club where you can rent equipment for SUP, Kayak, Windsurfing or Kiteboarding. We took lessons with this outfit for kitesurf and they were super enthusiastic and committed instructors. We've stayed in other resorts on Ban Tai and this is now our 1st choice for our next trip.

we only stayed for one night as a stepping stone really between samui and tao. The local guy was pretty friendly who i assumed was owner he gave us key and left us alone. we enjoyed short time on beach which was practically deserted and tide was right out so i walked out to reef which seemed to take forever... they weren't doing food and i assume it was low season as we were only ones staying there i think, so had pool all to ourselves too which was great .! it wasn't bad , rooms are basic tho, a real throwback to 70s with the retro tv (which did work) , and furniture ,and the powder blue bathroom suite.. and the owner kindly dropped us nxt day at pier in his pick up which was nice . all in all it was short but sweet and you get what u pay for which was good value for money.
