Additional Location Information

Ban Tai is a quiet little area still close to everything near Maenam which makes it a sought after location for those seeking something a little more tranquil. Ban Tai and its surroundings includes a series of small and longer sandy bays that run from the western-most point of Mae Nam through to the north-west corner of Koh Samui, a peaceful part of the island.

The central beach is a rather long stretch with stunning views over to Koh Phangan. There are areas with good swimming waters and others with more coral. As in Bang Por the beach offers a number of very good Thai restaurants where you can dine in a beautiful setting.

Along the main road on the way to either Maenam or Bang Por, there are a few spas offering a range of treatments including whole detox programs, yoga sessions as well as massage treatments. The whole area enjoys an atmosphere of rest and relaxation, and a holiday in Ban Tai could represent a complete detoxification of the spirit.

Ban Tai is in easy reach of the hills which present some of the most stunning views of the island. Maenam on the doorstep with its selection of excellent restaurants and trendy bohemian town feel. Many villa renters on Ban Tai choose to stay within the comfort of their own villas and its surroundings, seeking in general the private escape that the location so readily provides.

From Ban Tai villas you can drive easily into the hills and enjoy some of the most spectacular views on the island. Ban Tai beach is certainly an ideal setting for those seeking a more sedate holiday away from the hustle and bustle but at the same time retaining its tropical magic.
