From the first time we sighted the resort from the free speedboat ride to the time we left we were stunned. Staff,(especially Santh) were wonderful and always smiling. Breakfast was very good and we also ate in the restaurant for lunch and one evening meal, food was lovely on both occasions, (although meals and drink were more expensive than Pattaya... More

We landed at Bangkok Airport & took a van to the Pier which is 2.5 hours away. We were pleasantly surprised to find the Samed Resorts Group has a a very tasteful and comfortable lounge cum cafe to rest and wait until your free shuttle speedboat takes you to Koh Samet. The shuttle speed boat is punctual. Koh Samet is... 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. You are steps away from the beach and the property is quiet and one of only 3 resorts on this bay (much quieter atmosphere than the other side of the island). It was... More

Hotel located in tranquil bay, sandy beach, well maintained garden. The staff is very friendly, good service. The only thing I would raise and challenge the hotel management is the cleanliness of the beach - I would invest a bit more money and energy to remove the trash which remains on the sand after low tide - it is a...

We stayed for a couple of days and enjoyed The beach and some of the bars and restaurants. Everything was good and more than you can expect in Thailand. Room was clean and staff was friendly and professional. Hill side is recommended. On the downside we had to share the place with some rich and a bit boring people.
