This hotel is one of only 3 hotels in Ao Prao. 2 of the three are owned by the same group that also owns a few other resorts on the island. There are no other places nearby, so customers are stuck paying the inflated monopolistic restaurant prices. I would guess food prices are about double that of other places where... More

Arrived by car at the Samed Resorts visitors centre at Seree Pier to park the car and board the speed boat. Very welcoming and professional plus nice café, 25 minute boat ride - lovely clean...

Beautiful, charming hotel. The staff was very attentive and treated you like a queen. We had room 214, which had a great view. The room was spacious with a kingsize bed. The shower was also grand. Beautiful surroundings with lots of vegetation, nice flowers, birds, geccos, butterflies and some bugs... Two infinity pools with nice sundecks and chairs. Outstanding beach... More

I stayed here for 2 nights and chose the place as I wanted to get away from the crowds as much as possible and it was great for that. I ended up having to stay beside the swimming pool though as the sea was absolutely full of plastic bags and rubbish which was a real shame. The breakfast was ok... More

Booked this resort based on previous reviews and could not have been happier. It was the perfect place to relax and unwind. The motor boat transfer from the Samed Resorts Visitor Centre (Rayong Beach) to Ao Prao Resort was a breeze, on arrival at Ao Prao each guest was warmly greeted with a cocktail. Booked a deluxe cottage which was... More

Their private beach was really good! Safe and clean, the coolest thing is that waterlevel there wasn't as high as other beaches', so there were no surfers, no sea jets; It was just a calm, peaceful blue ocean, so I was able to enjoy swimming. The Aophrao staffs are cleaning the beach once a week, so the whole environment was... More
