The Rajapruek Resort hotel sits on a 7 kilometre soft, silver sand beach fringed by lofty coconut Palms. The sea, clean, turquoise and deep cerulean blue reaches to the horizon's gift of the islands of the Ang Thong National Marine Park. Being on the West Coast of this tropical paradise of Samui the sunsets are spectacular.
This is a family run hotel and its personal attention to detail shows constantly in their quiet enthusiasm for each guest's enjoyment.
It is our family's third visit, this time for over two weeks. This time we stayed in a Beach bungalow, literally our front door was 4 metres from the high tide line. Three of us shared this lovely cottage and slept soundly lulled by the gentle sussuration of waves on the sand. Rajapruek sleep is many times more refreshing than at home in Belgium.
The Rajapruek's Restaurant offers a large selection of European and Thai dishes. Be sure to ask for any fish specials. The grilled barracuda is succulent and delicious. Usually one only finds this level of cooking and presentation in the five star restaurants with their attendant bank shattering bills. We do eat "out" and Samui offers a wealth of fine dining, but getting down to it - well the Rajapruek's Sea Breeze restaurant is difficult to beat.
If watersport is your thing then the hotel offers the use of their Hobie Catamaran and sea kayaks. Lifejackets are required fashion and these are provided by the Rajapruek. We are into diving and this is all perfectly arranged by the excellent Reception staff from pick up to return collection.
If you would like to try scuba diving and it is your first time you will find one of the family is PADI certified and she can guide you into safe and capable hands. It opens up a whole new range of things to do.
The Rajapruek is perfect for honeymoon couples with their own secluded bungalow on the beach. Weddings are also arranged and handled by the hotel. If you would like to get married in style, on the beach with jungle encrusted mountains as a background and the beauty of the sea for those memorable photos just leave ALL the work to the hotel and enjoy the wedding.
Back here in the grim dark drear of a Belgian 6 month winter our memories of the Rajapruek keep us warm as the computer counts down the 207 days until the Easter holidays when we can return to real civilisation and lovely people.
