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

My husband and I travelled from Bangkok where we live to Koh Samed with a party of 30 people from his workplace. We spent the weekend as a group and I must say we were very impressed with the overall experience. Our bungalow on the hill was perfect for two people, everything worked well and it was spotless. The view... More

This was my second time at the Ao Prao, the first was in 2004 - ten years ago - some things have changed others have not. The garden used to be spectacular, its under reconstruction now. There was no internet in the rooms, now it is excellent and for free. The rooms (cottage) are exactly the same, ten years ago... More

This place is a 3 star accommodation with 5 star prices. Even the beach is beautiful, the bad experience in the hotel cannot compensate. Was charged 1200 Baht (40$) for a extra bed in a simple bungalow. Poor breakfast with just cheap supply. It's a shame as the location is great.

We found this resort after a week on the other side of island. We got a beautiful sea view room over looking a quiet beach and small bay, which was great because there is nothing else to do but lie on the beach and sip cocktails :). Breakfast was average which was strange because the breakfast buffet at the previous... More

The hotel itself was very nice. We originally stayed in a room (226) with a four poster bed. Clean, modern and well decorated. There was an indoor / outdoor shower room which had a waterfall shower, but this was freezing cold. Another shower head was to the side at an angle and was warmer. A bit strange, particular with large... More

Beautiful and quite beach to escape from the crowded street. Staffs are friendly and helpful and room is clean and comfort. Especially, good arrangement on speed boat transport between ferry pier to resort.

We stayed here in low season, generally this resort has avarage or bad service, all over, except at the massage on the beach. I got acute ill with very high fever in... More
