The Hotel, facilities and staff were all excellent, however there were very few guests.Six for breakfast one morning! The location would certainly suit those looking for a peaceful holiday, however in the off season there was literally only a handful of people staying. Most of these used the bar and restaurant facilities of the hotel down the road as the... More

The hotel was very accommodating and was always kept clean. Although the resort and beach was great the food was not top class, it... More

The west coast of Ko Samet is where to go for a relaxing, romantic and peaceful getaway. This bay has only three small resorts, with Ao Prao offering an end-of-the-road calmness in stark contrast to some of the overdeveloped east coast places. Staff is friendly and helpful, although English can be a challenge. The beach is beautiful and continuously cleaned.... More
