You can, but the roads are mostly poor dirt tracks. In rainy season you can't do it on a scooter.

I was in Samed recently and the roads were dangerous in places for scooters. The owner of Samed Resorts (which includes Paradee) told me that the road is impassable during rainy season except to 4WD. Even at the top end of the island, once you get off the few well surfaced roads, its a challenge using a scooter on muddy tracks.

hmmm, so the only option for getting into town from paradee is taking their shuttle boat at 1pm and 5pm or taking a private speedboat for 200 dollars? that seems a bit crazy!

Have you already booked? Samed Resorts have 6 resorts on the island, most at the other end of the island. Paradee is designed for those who want to be in an isolated location.

Yes, and its non refundable! Unfortunately we didn't realize how remote the resort was before we booked...

Non-refundable ?? souinds agains all rules...have a talk with Samed Resorts sales department (in BKK) and try to negotiate a change yr booking to another of their properties. If you are unhappy with yr choise, it's nobodys interest to keep you unhappy(very bad advertising) ! and by that way money is going from their left pocket to the right pocket and not lost for you or for them.
