We arrived here to arrange a dive or two, only to find that the reception initially had no idea that they had a 5 Star PADI dive centre. We were then told to "go to the white umbrella out there". We had to distract a staff member at the white umbrella who was more interested in his mobile phone. He... More

We were planning a trip to Koh Samet at very short notice and were only getting a hill-top room at Ao Prao resort. Though the pictures looked good, we were slightly hesitant with how it would turn out to be. The day we landed, the hill top room turned out to be a long walk up and since i was... More

Just completed a disappointing stay here a few days ago. Wanted to share my thoughts. Yes, the beach is probably the best in Ko Samet (though during our stay it happened to be particularly dirty, with discarded drink bottles and various litter washing ashore), but the service my girlfriend and I received is the worst I've ever experienced in Thailand,...

The rooms were nice with great views. This is one of the better resorts on the island and priced accordingly. The beach front is rather nice and was not overcrowded during our stay. No Asian tour groups here...yet! The restaurant has a bbq each night that is plentiful and rather standard fare. You get the sunset on this side of... More

I took a boat tour to this beach aka 'sunset beach' and was extremely disappointed. This beach is situated on the west of the island and where you can expect to pay six times what I'm currently paying for accommodation plus 24% tax on all your food and drink. The concept is one beach, one resort. It would be perfect... More

Koh Samet is a tiny island just off the coast near Rayon. You get there by speed boat which will be included in the room rate. You need to find the correct pier along the coast which is a bit of a challenge. There is a large air-conditioned departure hall with a nice café and good staff. The resort has... More

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

Wanted to get away for 4 quiet relaxing days on Koh Samed - read the reviews and chose Ao Prao Resort. What a great choice. 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...
