Awesome HotelPosted Feb 18, 2017
Pros: Spacious rooms, very clean, amazing staff (we had a personalized butler service for us).
Cons: Not many options of water sport activities available at the hotel. This could be looked into and may be add a couple, like parasailing for example.
Location: Location is a bit far from the airport and other popular local hangouts. But if you enjoy calm, quite, and serenity, then this is the place to be.
Awesome Hotel, enjoyed every minute of our stay and the experience is unforgettable.

Well located hotel, with great views of the seaPosted May 4, 2016
Pros: The hotel is spectacularly located on a verdant hill overlooking the beach and ocean The buggy cart service down to the beach was very helpful
Cons: Staff in lobby were a little impersonal Staff were lacking in good English language skills Restaurant and bar prices were exorbitant
Location: Hotel location was great The beach was well located however the sea front was very rocky and too shallow for swimming
We had a 4 nights stay at this hotel with an ocean view room in the main building We found the staff and management of the hotel to be efficient and generally helpful

Nice to relaxPosted Dec 7, 2015 on Hotels
Great stay, attentive staff. The restaurant at the beach is awesome! It's far away from the town, so this is a great quiet stay!

A great getaway and a great resort!Posted Dec 7, 2015 on Hotels
We stayed at the Intercontinental Samui Baan Taling Ngam Resort from 30 November to 4 December and enjoyed it thoroughly. The hotel grounds are sprawling and yet, remains quite private. The rooms are in great condition notwithstanding that they look a bit aged. Service-wise, the hotel is top notch. The staff were always polite, helpful and gracious, and did whatever they could to attend to our needs (we were there with our 5 year old son who enjoyed the attention). The hotel beach is clean and well-kept (and private too!). At this time of the year, the water was clear though not was warm as we'd have liked but swimming in the ocean was not an issue at all. Food-wise, the hotel has got good offerings from Amber & Flames, both offering great food options (local to International). The Air Bar is also a must-see especially for its glorious sunset views, and its cocktails and canapes. There are also great alternatives from nearby restaurants like Island View (this one is fantastic!) and I-Talay both of which are more affordable and can provide transport to and from the hotel (not to mention food delivery services!). Overall, this is a great resort. I recommend considering Club privileges too since they made a huge difference for our stay.

I booked the Beachfront Pool Villa, it was amazingPosted Oct 18, 2015
Cons: More restaurants
Location: Middle of no where really, but with a car, you can reach Chaweng in half hour.
I booked the Beachfront Pool Villa, it was amazing, I strongly recommend you spend the extra money to get this room. For the nice view, and location (Near the main pool and the beach and restaurant.) Tried the Spa in the hotel too was perfect! The hotel overal had everything you need with quality. Location wise is far from the main crowd in Chaweng Beach (around 30 min by car) recommend you rent a car with a driver that costed me 4000 bahts from mid-day to 10pm.

Don't stay here, it will ruin every other hotelPosted Aug 1, 2015 on Hotels
Heaven on Earth. We went to the W in Bophut after, and that really seemed pretentious/hipster compared to the IC. Great service, amenities, design, and location. Wish we could go back, but IC location/property I've ever been on.
