Spent a week at the Vongdeuan Resort on Koh Samet after a month of travelling around Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia. We stayed in one of the Thai cottages, small but it had everything we needed. On the weekend the beach was a little busy but the rest of the time very relaxing. Enjoyed both the beach and pool. Good breakfast included with our accommodation and although there were other choices down the beach, we ate most of our other meals at their restaurant. We found the staff friendly, especially at the restaurant where some of the waitress tried to help us with our Thai phrases.
Somethings to consider when booking is that they are constructing a new restaurant and it was quite noisy near our cottage (so we spent all day at the beach or pool). Also expect to get a little wet on your arrival. The barge that takes you from their boat doesn't quite make to the shore. For those that like nightlife, this may not be the place. Some the other resorts have music in the evenings but not much is going on. Another thing that perhaps they could improve in responding to emails. I wanted confirmation of our booking and some instructions as to where and how to catch their boat but didn't get a response until a day after I arrived. Luckily that's where tripadvisor and the internet helped out. All in all, a great way to end a six week holiday.
