Of the three resorts on Ao Prao beach the Ao Prao Resort has villas closest to the beach. Ao Prao is perhaps the prettiest and quietest of the beaches on Ko Samet. I had Villa 207 which had a nice sea view. The villa was so cute - hard wood floors and a little bay window. I liked the balcony,... More

I found Ao Prao Resort back in 2006 while I was working in Thailand. The hotel has several types of rooms to choose. We had the deluxe beach view room. This was nicely appointed with a good bed and view of beach. The bathroom fixtures for shower need updating to match the quality of the room though. The beach is... More

what i could say, specific on this hotel is beach, because there is no similar beach on the island like this one Ao prao beach with such access to see , cleanness and quiet, This beach is like closed for foreigners (not guests of hotel), because they must go by road at least 1km to closest town, which since i...

I wanted to see a beautiful Thai sunset but I didn't want to travel too far from Bangkok. The resort is beautiful and well cared for. I loved the beach, the pool, and the food and drink. I had only a few days so I was content to stay at Ao Prao and the few resorts nearby. The free boat... More

Pos: the resort is well maintained, staff and cleaning service is good with all really friendly smiles (i guess it is everywhere with Thai people). The room is simple but you have everything you need for your stay. Cons: - Room is dark that you can't read in the room although all the lights are on - We booked airport... More

I just love to be there, the wonderful beach, the fantastic bungalow, the extremely nice staff, the food, the drinks and the quiet and very relaxing atmosphere. So if you look for this things I...

We stayed here for 4 nights, a good time to explore island by motorcycle and relax in the resort. Thanks to the clean room, friendly staff and good weather we had a wonderful time. Our sea view cottage was equipped according to the price level. In te weekends the resort offers sea food BBQ and a nice fire dance show.

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
