Ao Prao is on a beautiful little beach isolated from all the other busy-ness and crowds of Ko Samet (which is not too crowded anyway). Downside is that it is on the Bangkok side of the island, so the sky is hazier and the water is not as clear as the side facing open ocean. You don't see sunrise, but... More

It is a paradise place so close from Bangkok. Clear water good side of the island , no crowd ! Rooms little bit tiny but well equiped and confortable . Only big worry with chef and restaurant manager. Too expensive and far too spicy plate for occidental profil. Despite our comment , no concern about customer ! A real pity... More

We were given such a warm welcome by Mr. Boonruay Jaraspat and his team..served wonderfully refreshing longan, welcome drinks and shown to our rooms which... More

The first time we went to Koh Samed, we stayed in Ao Phai and vowed that we will never come back to the island again. The food was terrible, the noise from all the bars and restaurants unbearable, and the drunk tourists deplorable. on our arrival, we kept getting nickel and dimed from the port all the way to the...

We had a hillside villa. Room was very comfortable - though with the two separate beds pushed together. A large balcony, sitting area outside that looked out onto the sea. Walk down to the beach and it's a wonderful swimming area. This side of the island is the "quiet" side and you pay a little more for it. It's for... More
