Le Royal Meridien Baan Taling Ngam Review

The name means "home on a beautiful bank," but that doesn't come close to summing up the stunning location of this luxurious hotel. Most of the rooms are built into the 200-foot cliff, but the beachside villas are even better. The swimming pool is a magnificent trompe l'oeil, looking as if it's part of the ocean far below. There's a second pool by the beach where you'll find an activities center. The beach is extremely narrow, so sunbathing is not feasible at high tide, but you can swim. The southeast corner of the island is also closest to the Angthong National Marine Park, making this the best base for exploring that island chain. You can dine on Thai and European fare at the Lom Talay; seafood is served at the more casual Promenade.
