We are staying at this resort for 5 days and today is our 3rd day here. We have booked through bookings.com and secured a beach view villa.

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

Didn't know much about the island when we booked so we were quite lucky when we arrived. Ao Proa is a small little bay with only four resorts. It's clean and quiet and the beach is calm and peaceful. The resort provides a free boat shuttle from Ban Phe at 11:00, 1:30, and 4:30. The other side of the island... More

We really enjoyed our amazing get away in our private bungalow at Ao Prao. The service was wonderful and the rooms, while basic, were spacious and tidy.
