Baan Taling Ngam Resort & Spa, Baan Taling Ngam

Baan Taling Ngam Resort & Spa, Baan Taling Ngam

This resort settles in at the high end scale of comfort and exclusiveness. The resort boasts 70 guest rooms, suites and villas which offer breathtaking views of the ocean. When it’s time to relax, the Baan Taling Ngam has you covered there as well: it’s infinity pool and spa treatments are among the area’s most-renowned and the amount of food choices is mind-boggling too with various Thai, Mediterranean, seafood, and barbecue items available.

Keep in mind that resort is relatively isolated, Baan Taling Ngam hasn't that much to offer, except for luscious green nature , Wat Kiri Wongkaram and a few restaurants. Although the resort is very well self catering, it's always nice to go out and either do some sight seeing, swimming or shopping. In that case you'll need transportation.

The villas are little places where you can create your won world, they're separate from all other villas and/or suites and rooms and one of the more famous people that I know off that stayed there is Mick Jagger of Rolling Stones fame.

Exclusive and well worth the extra expenditure, nice sunsets in the evenings and an exclusive stay is what you're looking for, the Baan Taling Ngam may be what you're looking for.
