This resort has ( in coöperation with some other Ko Samet resorts) its own ferry service to the mainland. Very comfortable! The resort is big ( more than 100 rooms) but it still feels good, thanks to very friendly and helpfull staff. Nice rooms, good showers. Situated on a quiet part of the Beach.

Location – Sai Kaew best part is its right on the most happening beach in in koh samet. All the big bars & water sport are in Sai Kaew beach only. Beside Sai Kaew beach hotel have another private beach, which is rocky but quite relaxing. Services Staff –Staff is quite friendly & understands English to an extent Amenities -... More

This place is one of the nicer resorts on the main beach (had sai kaew) however the service we found was average. Some staff spoke no English at all. The restaurant food is pretty awful (though the views are nice by the beach). Would not recommend eating at the restaurant at all except for breakfast where you can get a... More

Samet is great for a short break - beautiful white sand beaches and plenty of fresh sea food - but is too small and lacks the sophistication for a longer holiday. Sai Kaew beach resort is probably the nicest hotel on the island, but simply does not reach the standard of similarly priced hotels on Samui or Phuket. The breakfast... More

Good location with own beautiful beach. Friendly staff, sometimes a little hard to catch (especially at the beach). Room to expensive for what you get, the whole day speedboats in front of the beach.... And an easy sun downer turns every night in a children playground ( the positive side is, that most parents stay during the day with their... More

We were three couples ( in the early seventies) having rooms in the Bungalows in the garden. Arrived Ban Phe by own car. Very impressed by the people and the new reception there. The parking was covered and we felt very safe parking the car there. There are three departures a day with the boat. We went 12.30. The transport... More

Got taken to the wrong pier by a 'knowledgeable' local taxi driver which was a bit of a distant away from where the free ferry leaves and as a consequence had to pay over the odds for a speedboat. No ticket issued just a card given which was supposed to guarantee a return trip which of course it did not.... More

First time travellers to Koh Samet, we had no idea what to expect but had been told by local Bangkok friends that the island is pretty simple, popular for locals more so than overseas tourists, and anything goes. Well, all of that was true. Koh Samet is by no means a luxury destination. The town is very simple, the local... More

Loved this resort. Beautiful grounds, pools and rooms. Loved the bar service around the pool and the happy hour cocktails down by the beach. The only negative was perhaps the service in the restaurant but by Thailand standards this was still very good. Location is great, bars and restaurants all around.

We arrived in a speed boat at around 5:30pm... There is a reason why the last boats go out at 5pm. The sea gets a bit rough after 5pm. So we were soaked wet from the waves and the captain of the boat let us out of the boat about 10m in front of the shore, thank god the water... More
