We've seen some villas in our time, but Baan Paa Talee Estate took our breath away.  The quality and scale of the villa; the wild beauty of its surroundings; the vast ocean panoramas from almost every room; the warm welcome from the exceptional staff and the creativity of the villa's skilled chef are all in a class of their own.  We were particularly happy to learn all about the villa and the surrounding area from the villa’s knowledgeable, guest-relations manager, who made our stay even more special.

Although Baan Paa Talee is spread across four levels of accommodation, we found ourselves drawn to two special spots: the reception lounge on the 'top deck' - so beautiful at sunset – was the obvious choice for evening cocktails before moving into the glass-enshrined dining room for another memorable dinner; and the whole pool area, which worked brilliantly with its options for lazing, swimming, soaking in the jacuzzi, enjoying a game of pool in the bar area, or cooling off in the media room with a favourite movie.

The bedrooms are really well arranged, offering total privacy if you want it (especially in the Ocean Villa), or flexibility for families in adjoining suites.  All are beautifully fitted and furnished and very comfortable.  Our stay was perfect and we can only hope we get a chance to return.

Highlights

Hard to pick specific highlights from so many, but the amazing dishes that the chef produced must be mentioned, as must the extraordinary views and the perfect pool area.

Surprises

Only nice surprises here!  Not exactly a surprise, given Baan Paa Talee's stunning hillside location, but there are quite a few steps at the villa, so it's not ideal for everybody.  It was a shame being so close to the ocean but not being able to get in it – but then one of the islands prettiest beaches is just a few minutes away, and the pool is a magnificent alternative!

We had the most amazing stay at the villa. Everything was so perfect, the food, the rooms, the people who worked to make the stay perfect for us. Special thanks for making sure everything was taken care of. Will surely recommend and come back to this villa. Keep up the good work.

Words fail to describe how beautiful and breathtaking this property is. Baan Paa Talee is a slice of Heaven, perfect for large families who want to relax and enjoy what this luxurious property has to offer. While we were staying here, we were amazed at how well kept and pristine the whole place was. Every single element, from the construction, the furniture, the appliances etc were all top quality. Each room was perfect, one better than the other with unbelievable views. It was hard to tell who had the best view. Every minute detail was carefully designed and crafted to ensure that we were taken care of, whether it be luscious beds, slippers in our room, abundance of towels, room service or mosquito repellent for that matter. That was just one part of it. The staff and house keeping was unparalleled. I do not think even a 5 star hotel comes close to them. The cook was fantastic, whipping up meals that were exotic and so mouth watering.

I would like to tell you that the villa is so amazing! All 19 of my family members were so happy about it. All staff are very nice, even the drivers. The housekeeping service is top-notch. They clean the room when we have every meal, breakfast, lunch and dinner. Every time when you went back room to grab a thing or change clothes, the room is so tidy! We enjoyed every moment at the villa. The villa manager, AJ, is so nice. She organised everything very well to suit our needs. Thank you very much.

I am more than satisfied with you and your staffs' excellent services. You were always attentive and willing to help us so that we could fully enjoy our stay and so were the other staffs. Your food was great, too. We had all of our meals in house during our 5 nights stay except one dinner and one lunch. I could see all the dishes were carefully prepared and the chef were trying her best to serve as much variety as possible. And I also enjoyed the market tour and cooking class with chef Care. My wife, son and I really miss the time we spent there flashing back to all the activities and all kinds of food we will never experience forever. I have told other families are all really satisfied with the services you provided. Especially the timely and thorough information about restaurant, golf and tour was very helpful.
