I went to Ao Prao for a quick weekend get away from Bangkok. I stayed in a sea view cottage, which was absolutely charming. There was fresh fruit waiting for me, a robe, beach slippers, an umbrella, and a sweet note from Mr. Gecko (letting me know that he might sing a little, and should he be in my room... More

During our stay at Ao Prao Resort we were overly impressed by the facilities. The staff were so friendly and the service we could not fault. Restaurant Manager Payab Lamjuy and staff made our stay a very enjoyable and relaxing holiday. We can highly recommend Ao Prao Resort

This the best you can have in Koh Samet by this range. The resorts near to the beach are so beautiful. You can actually view the sunrise & sunset from your own bedroom. Breakfast was okay but need more variety. Room service was excellent. We just faced one problem, as Koh Samet is not that overly crowded & popular destination,... More

In a review of a stay two years ago, I said Ao Prao was paradise. After my most recent stay I was reaffirm that opinion. However, I should make it clear that if you're looking for high-octane entertainment, nightclubs and noise, then Ao Prao would NOT be paradise :-) My idea of paradise is somewhere relaxing, peaceful, with great service,...

For a deluxe room (#208), we paid about 5,550 THB++ including breakfast and the 1,000 THB nightly surcharge for a stay over a holiday weekend. Overall, the service was friendly and well-meaning but a little clueless. For example, we arrived early, so our room wasn't going to be ready for another hour but no one informed us... We sat waiting... More

I went to Ao Prao Resort along with my fiance last April 2014 during the last days of Songkran weekend. We stayed here for 2 nights and I loved every moment of it. All the staff were very accomodating and friendly. Given that I am not familiar with Thai language, they completely helped us with all our needs - calling... More

I stayed here for 2 nights with some friends and we had a great stay. Getting to our room involved walking up quite a number of stairs, which got a little tiring but the view was really nice. I would recommend a room closer to the beach that would require less stairs. The pool was nice and the service provided... More

My friend and I arrived by the hotel's speed boat. Very nice and easy. The beach was beautiful clear water, a bit of trash floating around but mostly in the morning when the tide came in. The staff at the hotel came and cleaned it up a couple times a day, that was nice. You can walk to the other... More

We have just spent one week here. The beach is beautiful and there are various water sporting activities. It is reached by a 10 minute speed boat or a cheaper boat (40 mins) takes you to the main ferry pier on the west of the island and then a cheap"taxi" ride (more a pick up truck) to the resort.The road...

this was a fantastic experience especially as my daughter got married here. Lovely location, great food, extremely pleasant staff, lovely beach and pool. You can stay in the resort and enjoy a live group singing or travel to a much busier beach where a lot more going on if prefer that, though beware, a very bumpy journey! Yu can also... More
