We have just left after 3 weeks with heavy hearts as we loved the place so much.
As previous reviewers have said, the place is well equipped, beautifully decorated and furnished and a superb place as a base.
The staff keep th place spotless, and any small issues we had were dealt with by Sue and her staff very quickly.
Again, the shops and eating places are all within a couple of minutes walk. Pa Pen is the local eatery, with plastic chairs and scruffy tables. don’t be put off though as the food is excellent and unbelievably cheap, literally £1-£2 a dish!
We ate here for lunch quite a lot and never had any hadany issues.
Mimosa is on the beach and is more like UK prices, but has the most amazing views over the sea at sunset. Happy Hour 5-7, two cocktails for one.
On the walk to the beach there is a little crossroads with another place to eat. This has the best tempura prawns & veg spring rolls andwe ever tasted, and all for £2, it is a fantastic place.
We fell in love with Koh Samui last year and stayed in a 5 star resort, but Baan Tai Tara is better than anything, and we loved every minute.
Dont overpack your bags either as the litle shop does your washing and ironing for 50 baht per kilo, so for a fiver you get enough washing for two people for a week.
The little shop also has a few tables where you can sit and have a beer, the only downside was the clientele that use it.
Chainsmoking Germans, who told us the table we were sat on was “ their table as they had been there for 20 yrs”
I will let you guess the response they got from a very straight talking 18 stone Yorkshireman. Needless to say we had no further issues.
We fully intend to come back next year and look forward to meeting our new found friends in the area.
