The resort has many different types of rooms to cater to different budgets. We were on a tight budget but stayed in a lovely "apartment" room here, for the same price as some very worn-out bungalows on the same beach. Great option if you want a comfortable room with all the amenities, hot shower and a private balcony. The price also includes a great international buffet breakfast. The restaurant serves delicious food throughout the day, and the evening BBQ on the beach is a must. The onsite spa offers fantastic massages in a tranquil wooden lodge; air-conditioned and private. Other facilities include kayaking and snorkel/mask rental, all at great prices. Beautiful setting within a tropical garden, tucked into the corner of gorgeous Ao Phai. The beach is quieter than the main beach Had Sai Kaew but within walking distance of it, and a short walk over the headland also leads to another stunning beach Ao Tubtim which is even quieter. Friendly and helpful staff.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the resort are quieter at night because they are further away from the beach-front bars. But rooms at the front have a sea view. Cheapest rooms are "apartment" rooms, not bungalow style but great facilities.

We stayed here recently and booked two superior family bungalows with sea view for us and eight other family members. After a busy schedule in Thailand we needed some relaxing time and that's what we did at this great resort! My wife and I went four times before to Koh Samed and this is the best stay by far at the east side of the island. We noticed that the bungalows, restaurant and reception just finished some renovations. The superior family bungalows were clean, comfortable, spacious and up-to-date with a flat screen tv, great bathroom, bed, balcony and nice decorated. The view at the beach was wonderful too. We could not hear noise from outside because of the thermopane, double glass windows, so the comments about noise issues we can't confirm. We had a great sleep. The location is great at a more quiet place of the beach, but still in walking distance to all the action. For families this location and the superior family bungalow are great because of the double bathroom and bedroom. The staff were friendly and proactive, clearly well instructed by the Swiss management. We used the Bangkok Hotel pick-up service and that was arranged well too. The buffet style breakfast was good with a wide selection of international and Thai food. In the evening the restaurants at the Saikeaw beach were in walking distance. All the seats and lights at the beach have such an romantic and special atmosphere. The restaurant at Samed Villa have also such an atmosphere with nice lights and the quality was good too. All in all it is a really nice, comfortable, reasonable priced resort and I can recommend this to everyone, specially families.

We stayed he for three nights recently and found the resort to be nicely laid out and with attractive decor. We explored up and down the coast and must say that this place looked by far one of the smarter resorts. Our room was clean and comfortable. We had a superior garden view bungalow, though I would say that 'view' isn't really the word. It was very leafy but we actually looked onto the back of another bungalow. The bungalows are laid out in rows. My preference would be for a sea view but some of these are fairly close to the restaurant and bar area, so could be noisy. However, the restaurant was closed by about 10 pm and the bar was very quiet after this time too.
The mini bar in the room was pretty cheap, with prices not much more than those in the local shops.
The food in the restaurant was very good, and reasonably priced. The breakfast buffet was quite good too, the freshly made omelettes being an attraction. Though a wider selection of fruit would have been nice (there was only water melon and pineapple). The coffee was fresh which was a plus.
As mentioned by other people, the down side was the noise on the Saturday night coming from Silver Sands just along the beach - a boom boom boom of bass that woke us up about 1:30am. We didn't get much sleep after that, it went on until about 5am! There was some noise from there on the Friday night too, but not as bad. This aspect spoilt the mini break for us really, which was a shame.
Another negative was the service at the bar/ restaurant area. We waited ages to be served on several occasions, and often there was no waiting staff to be seen. They appeared to be understaffed in this respect and a bit disorganised.
The beach area in front of the resort got pretty busy with rows of sun loungers. It seemed that you had to stake your claim early! However, the next beach along (Ao Tubtim) was very quiet, and only a short walk.
There are one or two small general shops around the place if you want bottles of water, etc.. but if you walk up to Saikaew beach and cut inland by Buddy Bar, walk through a small arcade with shops selling sarongs, postcards, etc. and carry on straight ahead, you reach the main shopping stretch (small and limited as it is) that has a couple of 7 Elevens.
All in all it was a very nice resort. We are likely to return to the island but will probably stay elsewhere to avoid the late night noise, and for a spot of variety!

Room Tip: Bungalows near the bar area are likely to be noisier. If you want a sea view, the bungalows going towards the direction of Tubtim beach looked more more tranquil.

My husband and I stayed here for a long weekend and had a wonderful time! The hotel staff was very helpful, arranging pick-up from Bangkok Thursday evening after work for only slightly more than a normal taxi would have cost us. It was worth it to have everything taken care of. The hotel itself is tucked into the side of a cove, with little paths and foliage around. It is quite pretty. We stayed in the B rooms, one row back from oceanfront, which in reality was only another 100 feet from the water. The beach area is small but lovely, with chairs and umbrellas included. The hotel is close to lots of the action, but tucked to the side so it was also nice and quiet for sleeping. I would recommend Samed Villa as being great for families, or for those who like to go out but have a quiet place to sleep. We would happily come back!!
