Location description from owner

The Surat Thani Province region

The Koh Samui regionThe island was probably first inhabited about 15 centuries ago, settled by fishermen from the Malay Peninsula and Southern China. It appears on Chinese maps dating back to 1687, under the name Pulo Cornam. The name Samui is mysterious in itself. Perhaps it is an extension of the name of one of the native trees, mui, or from the Malay word Saboey, meaning "safe haven"[citation needed]. Ko is the Thai word for "island".Until the late 20th century, Ko Samui was an isolated self-sufficient community, having little connection with the mainland of Thailand. The island was even without roads until the early 1970s, and the 15 km journey from one side of the island to the other involved a whole-day trek through the mountainous central jungles.Ko Samui has a population of about fifty-five thousand (source: Samui Mayor's Office) and is based primarily on a successful tourist industry, as well as exports of coconut and rubber. It even has its own international airport, Samui Airport, with flights daily to Bangkok and other major airports in Southeast Asia such as Hong Kong, Malaysia and Singapore. Whilst the island presents an unspoilt image to the public perception, economic growth has brought prosperity, reflecting Samui's growth as a tourist destination, the Cunard ship MS Queen Victoria (a 2000-plus passenger ship) docked at Samui during its 2011 world cruise.Ko Samui, being in Surat Thani Province, has essentially two seasons; warm and tropical most of the year, with a short rainy season. Unlike Phuket and most of the rest of Southern Thailand which has a 6-month rainy season between May and November, Samui's weather is relatively dry for the vast majority of the year, with the rainy season being primarily confined to November. For the rest of the year, since the weather is tropical, when it does rain, it usually doesn't last long; rain showers of 20–60 minutes are typical.

Ban Tai

The Ban Tai areaEvents and festivalsBuffalo Fighting Festival One of the best-known festivals on Ko Samui is its Buffalo Fighting Festival, which is held on special occasions such as New Years Day and Songkran. Unlike Spanish bull-fighting, the fighting on Ko Samui is fairly harmless. The fighting season varies according to some ancient customs and ceremonies. The buffalo are beautifully decorated with ribbons and gold-painted leaves. Before the contest which lasts just two rounds, monks spray them with holy water. The winning owner typically takes home millions of baht in prize money. Ten Stars Samui Art Party A recurring cultural event bringing together art lovers, local Thai and international artists and their new, original artworks. These bi-monthly events, hosted at various high-end resorts and other 5-star venues on the island, focus on building the art community on Ko Samui with presentations by featured artists. Bowling Championship is an annual bowling event held in May every year. Avis Samui Tennis Open The annual amateur tennis tournament held in July. The Fisherman's Village Festival This five-day festival is celebrated with fun, music and food. The music is usually played by well-known artists and food tents sell inexpensive cuisine provided by local hotels. Triathlon Event The International Triathlon Union organizes this event every year. This event in Ko Samui draws more than five hundred participants from around the world. The event attracts competitors and visitors as well as locals. This event actually has never taken place and was promoted via a website only. Samui Regatta The Samui Regatta is a sailing tournament, held every year. The tournament is internationally known and competitors come from as far away as Australia, Singapore, Japan and China. This event, for boats of all sizes and shapes, began in 2002. Local food in general, Southern Thai food is renowned for its spiciness. Much of the cuisine has its origins in Malay, Indonesian and Indian food. Favourite dishes from the south include Indian-style Muslim curry (massaman), rice noodles in fish curry sauce (Khanom Jeen) and chicken biryani.Local food in Ko Samui and its province of Surat Thani are salted eggs and rambutan.

Reviewed 18 Mar 2013

This villa is gorgeous, exactly as the advert describes it...... Lovely beach just two minutes walk down a quite road, restuarants and bars nearby are great too and excellent value for money - especially the mai tai where we ate most nights! Would recommend this to anyone and we will certainly try to go back there!

Thank you so much for your wonderful words! We are so pleased that the villa met with your expectations and that you loved Bantai village. We look forward to welcoming you back soon! Jacquie (Villa Manager)

“Think of your best dream, now double it and you get Baan Tai Tara1”

Reviewed 9 Dec 2012

We have rented properties to customers for over twenty years ourselves. We like to think we give a great service!! Nobody likes coming second but sorry to say we do!! This property and services offered, is far better than we could ever of expected and what we ourselves attain!! Superb is an understatement, cleaners, pool services, gardeners all on time all perfect. The area is the best we have stayed at without question on Koh Samui. While sleepy everything is there WITHIN 100 metres, car rental, taxi, bars, all run by the nicest people you could find. We could go on and on by for ease like we said think of your best dream and double it. Nothing and we do mean NOTHING beats it!! Victor, a real gem and best of luck with everything you both do!!

Thank you so much for your kind words. We do try and ensure everyone's stay is a memorable one. Thank you for being such kind and graceful guests. We look forward to welcoming you back to Koh Samui. Best wishes, Victor and Chai
