Surrounded by colourful flowers and tropical greenery, Baan Tao Talay villa offers an exquisite island-life experience. 

This traditional, Thai-style property comprises five sumptuous bedrooms with en suite bathrooms housed under two pavilions. In the living room there are plenty of couches to curl up on, or you can enjoy a chess-challenge at the games table. Little touches add to the homely feel: flower arrangements, blossoms resting on pillows and shells neatly arranged around the water feature are a nice touch. Larger parties can also take the villa next door, Baan Samlarn, which is ideal for two families or groups of friends.

Private dining can take place at the 12-seater breakfast table or the shady beach sala. A menu serving Thai and Western options is available and gourmet fare will be served to you by your in-house chef.

Koh Samui & Koh Phangan

Samui is catching up with Phuket in terms of popularity and quality of hotels, making it an easy switch when Phuket is rainier in the middle of the year.

While the crowded beach of Chaweng on Koh Samui draws parallel at times to the Patong of Koh Samui, like its popular cousin on the West of Thailand, there are a number of luxury beach properties in secluded bays perfect for a secluded beach holiday.

Its neighbouring Koh Phangan is a quick 40 minute speedboat away. Famous for the hallowed grounds of the Full Moon Party, quieter boutique resorts are set far away from the exuberant party-goers. Snorkelling and diving are great in the Ang Thong National Marine Park.
