Nestled in the corner of the beautiful island of Koh Samet, this 3-star property sits on a 150 meter stretch of private beach. Spend your days trying a variety of water sports from kayaking to wake boarding. Intentionally small, only 21 luxury bungalows occupy this resort to ensure guest privacy and an air of exclusivity. The bungalows are designed in a contemporary Thai-style, giving the resort a village feel. All the major facilities are included, such as a swimming pool, poolside bar, sports and recreation center, and a restaurant offering international cuisine. To begin your perfect getaway vacation, you need to experience the Mooban Talay Resort.
"Pros: -Beautiful and quiet resort with great private beach."

A cozy resort with a very nice bedroom & outdoor bathroom. Had a pleasant time here with my husband and 1 yr old child. The only downfall is that the sand on the beach is full of tiny rocks & shells otherwise it would have been perfect!
Great Island Getaway ”
The complex was well laid out, with a nice pool and beach seating areas. The restaurant served excellent meals- in my opinion, the food quality was the best on Ko Samet Island.
Nice and clean beach & room”
Really loved the room, which wasn't huge but still comfortable. Pool was useless. They should replace the surrounding blanks because it looks old and cheap. Luckily beach was right next to it and spent time there instead of the pool. Good food and really nice staff. Recommended calm getaway for couples!
A great place to come back”
Far away from the hustle bustle Bangkok and perfect location on the other side of the beach, away from the party. Though the party area was harmless with majority of families only. This is the second time in my 4 years of visit and nothing as such changed. A perfect spot to eat, drink and chill at beach. We took a local scooter and drove around to the remote locations which was quite scenic and adventurous. Will definitely come back and stay here.
ddecoration are so nice”

Beautiful Tranquil Resort - Will Come Again!”
The resort is in a great location at the very beginning of the island of Koh Samed. Beautiful beach location, clean sand, nice villas, good food, friendly and attentive staff. The resort is quiet and good for rejuvenation, yet has plenty of activities and resources to have fun. I hope to come back soon!
Staffs and food was great! but be careful of the millipedes!!”
Staffs and food was great! but it too far from the main beach (more than I expected) and there are a lot of millipedes in your open air shower!!! (It scared me and I couldn't take a shower until my boyfriend get it off!!)
private beach and house”
The hotel is located at the end of the concrete road, you can rent a motorcycle or ATV from the port to get there. The road's condition isn't as bad as on the other side like all the way to Prao beach. The hotel has a lovely setting like individual houses, roofless bathroom, 24/7 swimming pool, spa, beach volleyball and private beach. The only downside is the hotel is quite far from all the restaurants.
Beautiful resort on the white sand beach”
We had a great stay at this place. its located on a white sand beach, one of the most beautiful ones of the island. We stayed here for new year. The hotel staff arranged a full entertainment program during new years eve, with local thai dance and a fire show and fire works. The staff is very friendly. The managers are walking around all day, the are very help full, and pay a load of attention to the customers. The rooms are nice villa's with a private patio. All located near to the beach. The food in the restaurant is good and reasonable priced. We rented a motorbike for a day and the city centre of the island is just 5 min ride away from the hotel. Definately recommend this hotel!
beautiful private location”
Staff very helpful, wonderful setting, beds comfortable and quiet at nights. Could have warmer water for the showers. The only problem were the sand flies....they need to spray the beach as it is a big problem.
Great place but shitty service! Avoid!”
Location, amenities and rooms are one thing but service helps complete your holiday. The staff lack enthusiasm and service mind! They don’t smile, like they don’t want to be here. Upon my arrival, I overheard the staff complained about more customers checking in which is bizarre! Our last day, a female staff tried to rush us out the room before checking out time! She had an audacity to knock on our door and was giving us a look when we left the room! I would suggest hotel management to look into hiring/ training staff! Until then they are cheaper, nicer and better service resorts down the road. Avoid at all costs if you want to have a pleasant getaway!
Had the beach to ourselves. Little bit out of town, but hire a motorbike . The location and view is well worth it
Beautiful garden and premises, the most relaxed stretch of beach on Samed and awesome food (compliments to the chef!). The staff of the restaurant could brighten up a bit, though.
Nice resort. Room decoration, restaurant toilet, overall environment, included garden. Nice seaview for beach front room
The hotel is on the area that not have so many people around you and easy to get there by boat, no need to take any car later. Staffs there are so friendly and helpful.
Paradise in Koh Samet”
Great place located at one end of the island. It was on the opposite direction of all the party scene, so we enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere. Room was excellent. The water was tranquil and swimmable. Staff is nice and accomodative. Jahara went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable. A large part of our amazing experience was definitely due to the resort staff. We'd highly recommend the resort to anyone who's looking for a relaxing weekend away from Bangkok.
Positives:- Excellent resort with excellent facilities, beautiful location and excellent dinning experience and super friendly staff upon arrival. Negatives:- Definitely need to hire a bike as it quiet a long walk to the town With the price you pay for a room I would have expected a smaller more private fast boat rather than a massively old dirty slow boat but hay ho All in all and excellent stay was had and we thoroughly enjoyed it
We have stayed at Mooban many times over the years, dating back to 2005. We saw evidence of some renovation on this trip and better food options at the restaurant. It is a quiet place on Samet and we enjoyed our trip here, once again, despite having basically no waterview from a "waterview bungalow".
Great location and very relaxing.”
The best things - Lovely room - very clean with large shower and comfy bed. It was very conveniently located seconds from the restaurant, pool and beach. We had one evening meal and one lunch at the resort - both were excellent. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. We hired motorcycles and found it very easy to get around the island. The beach was very quiet and clean. A few negatives (but not enough to spoil our holiday - overall we had a great time and would recommend the resort to others). The area around the pool was a bit tired - could do with some new sunbeds. The pool bar seemed to be unstaffed much of the time and did not look very inviting when a staff member was there. Although the food was excellent, the restaurant was rather stark and there was no bar to sit and relax in.
Absolutely a fabulous resort! It had everything there, from a wonderful restaurant, a terrific staff and the things to keep the kids busy. They had canoes, paddle boards and a pool with a pool bar. A great place to relax.
