I spent two nights here with my boyfriend and we loved it! Could have easily stayed for longer. The huts are really nice, beautiful and the view and surroundings are also incredibly beautiful.
The way to the sea is a bit steep, yes, and you have to swim a bit to get to the beach-beach (takes maybe 20 minutes incl. swimming to get to the beach). But it is probably the best beach on Koh Tao and bring snorkelling gear, since there are so many colorful fish and corals to enjoy on the swimming trip there.
The restaurant at the hotel made us some delicious food. A bit pricy, but not really compared to similar hotels on the island. And the smoothies are incredible - not the typical Thai smoothie, but really creamy and just delicious!
The staff was friendly and very helpful at all times, very nice!
All in all, beautiful settings for a romantic getaway at the cliff-side! Would love to return one day!

We stayed at Baan Talay for two nights and we loved it. The kids had a hut and me and my husband had a sea view suite. Very simple and cosy both of them. The view was fantastic. We felt really relaxed while we were there. Having yoga classes with Dave both evening and he is a really good teacher. The staff was very friendly and funny. We had a lot of good connection even if their English was a little poor. The food was good but we ate our dinner at Blue Heaven 5 minutes away. It is a fantastic restaurant and when you sit on the terasse there you have an amazing view over the see. We will come back to Baan Talay in the future. That's for sure!

We planned a four night stay and stayed one more night because we did not want to leave. Everything is so beautiful there. The bungalows are so cozy and tidy. The outside shower is just fabulous.
The view from the bungalows is awesome!!
Excellent food!!
The staff is so friendly and helpful! We can absolutely recommend this Resort and would book it again.
The island had a lot of rain and storms this year so the road to the resort is under construction.
But the resort offers a shuttle three times a day to the diving school in Chalong Bay.

We stayed for 2 excellent weeks in the Seaview suites at Baan Talay Resort & Yoga. The location is located directly above Aow Leuk Bay, but a little bit far away from the main pier area and Sairee. But by taxi or scooter everything is reachable conveniently.

The Seaview Suites have an amazing view over Aow Leuk Bay which contains corals and is good for snorkeling. Although the resort has a direct access to the sea, this access is a little bit rocky. But with a little bit efforts you can pass them and swim to the sandy, beautiful Aow Leuk Bay. The other option (more time-consuming) to get to the sandy beach is to walk or drive their.

The staff is very friendly and tries to make your stay as comfortable as possible and help you with whatever necessary. Bungalows are clean and directly located in an area similar to rainforests.

Recommendations:
>Consult the staff prior to your arrival that they organize a track from the main pier to hotel (~200 Baht) because those which you get at the pier are more expensive (~500 Baht).

>Get the business card from these taxi drivers and restaurants, shops should call them when you want to return in the evening (cheaper).

>Get a motor scooter/bike because then you do not need to wait for taxis especially in the early morning. But inform yourselves about good rental companies. Many of the rental companies on Koh Tao make there money purely by charging you ridiculous prices (~500 €) for "damages", but real rental price is low (~150 Baht per day). Try to look for older motor bikes which have already damages. Consult the staff of the hotel or foreigners working on the island (e.g. in dive shops).

Baan Talay is an excellent little resort located in the hills of Koh Tao. The staff are very friendly, the restaurant has tasty and affordable food and the whole resort has amazing views of the ocean. The accomodation is simple yet elegant and cozy. The resort is located a little far from the main town areas, but that is part of the charm, plus there's a free shuttle every morning and afternoon to get you to town and back. You can walk down to the ocean and snorkel or walk over some rocks to get to the beach. It's an adventure. The yoga studio has the most amazing view ever and the teacher was lovely. The diving school associated with Baan Talay is called New Heaven and is highly recommended -- the staff are all amazing and they even have a marine conservation program which in my opinion separates them from other schools on the island.

Last but not least, Baan Talay has two beautiful puppies named Mocha and Coffee who are 100% fun and friendly.

Will be staying with Baan Talay again!

Room Tip: We stayed in a bungalow which had a fan, outdoor shower and mosquito net, beautiful views from our personal balcony and hammock.
