“Private Gem in Paradise!”

people found this review helpful

My husband and I stayed in this charming, private self contained paradise for 6 nights. We loved the open concept, the plunge pool for cooling off and the Thai Touches in the decor. It is clean, modern, very comfortable and we felt like we could close out the world and be alone together, a very romantic villa. Convenience? It does not get better.....there are two
"Thai 7 11 shops" as we labeled them at the end of the driveway. The have absolutely everything you need from fruit to cheese to croissants to liquor....even sun screen! The beach is a 4 minute walk along a side road, there are numerous restaurants within walking distance and of course, Thai massage. My favourite was Jean from Jeany massage. You can have your laundry done overnight with ironed underwear! We LOVED being here at Baan Tai Tara 1 and can't wait to return.

“Dream honeymoon villa!”

We booked this villa a year ago based on the wonderful reviews and pictures and we were not disappointed. The villa is stunning, beautifully decorated and equipped with all mod cons. The whole place is geared up for a lovely relaxing holiday. The gardens are lush and green and the pool is beautiful and clean. The whole place is very well maintained and cared for.

The beach at ban tai is without a doubt the best on the island and we felt extremely lucky to have it on our doorstep. The little village is peaceful and quiet but with all the essentials for food shopping and laundry services. There is a great massage place too (koi) and the beach massage hut was also great. We did hire a car as we like the freedom to do our own thing and we felt that added to our trip greatly.

We mostly ate at the Mimosa and Koh Samui resort restaurants as the food was great, well priced and we are suckers for beachside dining!

Ban tai is away from the glare of the neon party scene of Chaweng which isn't our scene but it's only a 20minute car/taxi ride should you wish to participate. You must check out Fisherman's village on a Friday night though. The market is huge with bargains to be had. We especially enjoyed the street food and cocktails. We were here for Chinese New Year and the street performances were so much fun. It's truly paradise here and we are so glad we came. We would recommend this place and definitely return. Thank you to Victor and all the staff who made this magical place all that it is.

“Fantastic! Everything we were hoping for and more!”
Reviewed 21 May 2013 for a stay in April 2013

Beautiful clean self contained Villa that was just as advertised and better. Just a 4 minute walk to the beach. Dining establishments, massage services, convenience stores, taxi's and scooter rentals are across the street or just within minutes from the Villa. Very quiet and relaxing area. Most of our sun holidays have been at resorts, staying at this Villa beats any resort by far. We were there in April which was the hottest time of year and the air conditioning in the bedrooms was very effective and welcome. We highly recommend Baan Tai Tara 1.

“Died and gone to heaven.”
Reviewed 23 January 2013 for a stay in January 2013

Stayed at this stunning villa for 5 days. Wish we could have stayed forever. The position is fantastic with everything that is important close by; beach, restaurants, shop and massages. It is handy to have a car if you want to go further afield as there is a covered carport for one. The villa had a sparkling pool, kitchen, dining and lounge and 2 separate bedrooms with bathrooms and a separate toilet. The gardens were just beautiful with little spots to sit and relax. The welcome food, drinks and flowers were a welcoming touch. Thank you to Jacquie, Lee and Sue for making our stay so perfect.
