Classic tropical retreat

What we say: 4 stars

With only 21 smart and elegant villas in a private corner of the island with a good beach and swimming pool, Mooban Talay is one of Samet's most romantic resorts. Set amid thick gardens, rain collection pools with roofed salas at the centre, towering palms, fountains and stone walkways, spacious villas have high ceilings, tall windows, soft beds on raised wooden platforms and relaxing terraces out front. The craftmanship and attention to detail is outstanding. Designers have pulled off a romantic ambiance that lacks TVs and encourages couples to enjoy each other's company. A bottle of red wine comes with glasses and a cork screw on the minibars, and lovely open-air garden bathrooms lend a hint of the exotic. Along with the perfectly formed beachfront swimming pool, the resort offers Thai massage, a restaurant focusing on seafood barbecue, mountain bike and kayak rental and a volleyball net on the beach. The staff member who showed us around lived in the US for several years so spoke perfect English, and he struck the ideal balance of friendliness, politeness and graciousness. Note that the low season rates we were quoted are not shown on the resort's website. On a September weekday, we were offered 25% off the low season rate listed here.
