We just finished a 3D2N beach holiday in Koh Samet and stayed at Paradee. The moment we arrived via private speedboat, we were greeted by the General Manager and his service staff (concierge, chefs, spa attendants) right on the beach! Our villa (basic type) was spacious, tastefully decorated, and nested in the lush; the pool was fresh, clean, warm and inviting; the spa was very Zen. The best part was the private, white sandy beach, with crystal blue water.
Some comments here said that there’s nothing around the resort. Well, it’s true. But it really depends on what you are looking to do. My friend and I were looking to get away from the busy life to unwind and relax. So we were looking for a more secluded area to begin with. And Paradee was just the right place for that. We didn’t care much of what was outside of Paradee and stayed within the resort the whole time. It was great to catch up on reading, swimming, stargazing, and dinner on the beach. There were no kids screaming, no loud music, no one spoke loudly on the phone. It was just calm, quiet, and all we heard were the sound the ocean and the singing of the birds.
The food was amazing and so were the cocktails. We came in a “mid season” so it was very quiet and we felt like we were pampered the whole time: 10am fruit plate, 3pm ice-cream, 4pm afternoon tea…The staff were very attentive and nice and the General Manager wrote us a hand-written welcome note and made rounds in the morning to say “hi” to guests, bringing a personal touch to the already-great service.
I’d highly recommend Paradee for a getaway holiday, retreat, hideout, or whatever you call it. You will love it!
