We booked the Ao Prao Resort by telephone. We received government discount for the resort. We drove from Bangkok to Ao Prao Pier in 2 hours and 30 minutes. The parking was free and well maintained. The speed boat and shuttle were free. The staff were friendly and helpful. The resort was wonderful. The room was nice. The beach was clean. The pools were good. The restaurants offer good food.

We were transferred from Le Vimarn due to room’s malfunction. However, they were also problems in our new room at ao prao but the problems were more bearable than the previous one in Le Vimarn. Staffs are very kind. Food is great but expensive. Beach is nit the cleanest, but I think its seasonal. We found tons of rubbish every morning, although staffs tried to pick them up early morning and we helped them too. Overall, the stay was pleasant. Special thanks to K Sawittree, K Non and other staffs who looked after us. Appreciated it :)

Fantastic resort at one of the most beautiful beaches on the island. We had a great stay there and were especially happy with the service of Khun Payab who made us feel home for over 2 weeks of our holiday.

We returned for our third visit to Ao Prao resort and in spite of these difficult times, had a wonderful stay. We booked Ao Prao but were given a room at Vimarn (sister hotel on the same beach). The beach is beautiful. The sea crystal clear. Vimarn (like Ao Prao resort) is very comfortable, stylish and has lovely views from the restaurant, pool and rooms. The staff did an exceptional job in spite of these challenging times. Worthy of mention were K. Mint who checked us in and explained our room change with warmth and impeccable English and K. Payab who knew our breakfast drink order from our second day and gave exceptional service with warmth and professionalism at all times. A real gem.
