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

We just arrived back to Bangkok after we spend 5 days on Koh Samet - Ao Prao Resort. And it was even better this time. 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

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
