I am re-writing my 2015 visit so it comes with my name- here goes! 5 of us set out from Bangkok to Koh Samui then by speed boat to Koh Phangan then by an over crowded non air conditioned bus to the First Villa Beach Resort. We were grumpy to say the least and then we saw the beautiful ocean...

The bed and the bungalow are really out of date. The bed is hard and old. The location of the resort is right at the beach and beautiful when the sun set. The food is good and enough. The staff is very funny and help to make your day at good as possible. The price of the resort is perfect.

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at First Villa. The staff was so warm and welcoming. Everything is a bit spread out at Baan Tai beach so it was helpful to have a restaurant and bar on site at the resort. To walk to the street takes about 5 minutes and then there are restaurants within another 5-20...

This place is lovely if your looking to relax as it has a lovely pool and it's right on the sea. If your coming for a full moon party it's perfect; the owner is extremely bubbly and is very good and getting people to meet before the party. The food in the restaurant is very good but a little pricey...
