Tarn Tawan Resort Ko Samet Reviews
Wonderful Getaway for a Good Price Feb 10, 2010
Only a few hours drive outside of Bangkok, Ko Samet is a small tropical island off the coast of Thailand. Obviously, it can only be reached by boat and it a great getaway from the hustle and the bustle of city life.
Tarn Tawan is a quiet guest house on the eastern coast of the island. Rooms are very reasonable in price for being in a tropical paradise. My wife and I had our own bungalow with private bathroom and it was perfect for us. We just walked out our front door and in one minute we were in the warm water. The beach here is very nice. We even rented snorkels and saw some amazing fish, coral, urchin, etc. when we swam out just a little bit.
The guest house has plenty of outdoor seating at the beach and a pavilion area if you want to get out of the sun. They have their own restaurant that had great breakfasts and papaya salad. The owner liked us so much that she made us a mango and sticky rice dessert for free the last day we were there.
There are several other outdoor restaurants on the island and many are close to this guest house. Prices for those are very reasonable as well. It is all very quiet, there is one road on the island but it is far away from this beach.
This guest house is a very reasonable place to stay on a nice quiet island close to Bangkok. After being in the big city for a few days, you will need some place to go, and this place is a great choice!
