Would/could be fantastic and five star rated if there weren’t that kind of guests who do NOT respect whether the local customs neither the local people. Respect less clients from russia and china are destroying the good atmosphere. The front office manager is a very friendly and competent lady. Thank you for your wonderful service as well we’ll as the rest of the team if Ao Prao Resort. At Restaurant Buzz is served authentic and very very good thai cuisine!

Worth the extra money for sure! Staff were amazing, resort is peaceful and so clean! Transfers from Ban Phe included, and the location is unreal - perfect for romantic sunsets! You won’t regret your decision one bit. The island is smaller than I originally thought so everything is close and accessible by bike, scooter, walking or taxis.

We have just had the best week in Ao Prao resort. The beach is absolutely beautiful. The rooms were perfect ( we were in the hillside suite and in my opinion the best options because although it’s a small walk, it’s a little more private) The staff were super friendly (not all of them have the best English language so we had a few hiccups with translating at times) but everyone went out of their way for us. The food and drinks were expensive for Thailand but that said, it was tasty and plentiful. We often went to 7.eleven which is about a 30 minute walk to stock up on cheeper beers, and snacks! Cocktails were good but not excellent. Breakfast was tasty and a good selection of Thai and Western and ran from 7.30 until 10.30. We have stayed in Samet before but never have we had such a peaceful and great stay. Ao Prao is one of the more expensive resorts but I would say it was worth every penny. (Baht) The boat transfer was comfortable and easy, so that was a nice bonus. We were stopped on the other side of the island to ask for our National Park ticket. As the lady in previous reviews had said,make sure you have it available to prove you have paid. I think it should probably have been mentioned by the staff here. I would certainly recommend this beautiful resort. We will be back!
