First Villa Beach Resort
First Villa Beach Resort is a well established mid-range resort on the beachfront of Baan Tai. It has 30 rooms to rent, a restaurant, a beach bar and a beachfront swimming pool that includes an outdoor Jacuzzi.
The resort provides plenty of amenities such as Thai massage, jeep rental and laundry service. There is also a football pitch behind the resort for those who fancy a kick around.
Although the resort has good facilities for families, the resort is aimed at those who want to go to the Full Moon Party. If you want a quiet stay pick dates that don't coincide with the FMP.
The following accommodation options are available at First Villa Beach Resort:
- Standard small room has A/C, hot water shower, cable TV, free wifi and mini bar. Double bed or 2 singles.

There are only 30 rooms and bungalows and so if you want a specific accommodation type it is best to book well in advance. There are only 6 beachfront bungalows.
Children under 12 can stay with their parents free of charge if no extra bedding is used.
The resort has a great swimming pool with attached Jacuzzi. There are also sunloungers. Those on the beach can enjoy the beach bar. There is also a massage sala.
The restaurant serves a vareity of Thai and Western dishes. They also serve buffets and BBQs. I am not sure about their claim to use 'cholesterol free' oil.
