In short: a taxi driver tried to kill us because he felt offended, the police did not came and in the hotel they recommended us not to act against this individual.

At first, I was less impressed by this resort hotel (part of a group nestled along the same small and very attractive bay) than earlier reviewers. This was partly because I misunderstood its links with a neighbouring bar - which at least gave the impression it was part of the same operation! However, the Lima CoCo resort, strategically placed between... More

I really enjoyed my stay here. The staff is very friendly, service is great and it is simply away from the hectic of big hotels or resorts. End of November it was still quiet - no large tourist masses. Would come back without hesitation. Also the sister resort - Le Vimaran - looks great. you can share infrastructures like restaurants...

If you want to avoid the noise and commercial side of Koh Samet I highly recommend Ao Prao or any of the resorts on this beach. Not only do you get to enjoy the sunset but it is much quieter than the other side. Hire a scooter and enjoy all that the island has to offer but return every night... More

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
