I had a 2 week work trip to Bangkok and I asked my colleagues where I should spend the weekend. I had been to Thailand before and knew the beaches I loved were too far away for a weekend visit.

My colleagues recommend Paradee. I'm grateful they did, the views, service, food, and rooms were amazing!! I didn't want to leave on Sunday evening.

The staff were very friendly and accomadating. I would defiantly recommend it for anyone staying in Bangkok and who wants a quick get away.

When we came back home from Paradee we felt like two fallen Angels who had to leave heaven. It was absolutely amazing. The hotel is near a national park so you can really feel and experience the wonderful nature. Our room was very spacious (we had a garden pool villa 212 - 5 meters from the beach), decorated for our honeymoon with a bottle of wine and canapees, and our room was always very clean. We loved that we were not bothered too much by staff on the beach or in our room (they are very much in the background). If you want something on the beach then you can wink someone over or you just go there. The staff leaves you your space. The beach......HEAVEN. It is purely private so you dont get bothered by anyone trying to sell you things. We loved the breakfast and especially when Rung served it (her smile and competence always made our morning) and we would have liked to take her with us....she was so lovely. On the beach Tom was very nice serving us ice cream, fruits, or afternoon tea (all included in the hotel price....very nice touch). We were impressed with that service as well because until now, and we have travelled alot, we never experienced such a nice gesture from a hotel. In the evening Nicky was our favourite and he always recommended us the most delicious Thai food (food in Paradee is amazing by the way). We also liked that the hotel served little canapees at the sunset bar before dinner. What we absolutely loved, and that made us feel that the hotel is keen on family atmosphere for their employees, is that the hotel organizes birthday parties for their employees and families (dont worry, you would not have known because it is held more in the background but we asked). Our heart broke when we had to leave and it was even harder when Sean, the hotel manager, gave us a little good bye present. The staff on the pier then saw us all off which was also very moving.

There is just little things I would change (probably Sean will laugh now):
- Please, throw away this 80s CD and maybe get some loungy music :-)
- Maybe put more thai elements in the hotel - really missed that
- Maybe have a cheaper shuttle for guests to town

We would recommend this hotel in a heartbeat and we will return to Paradee again.

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to post your valuable comments to trip advisor about your recent stay at Paradee The Sixth Heaven. We are all glad to hear that you had a pleasant stay at Paradee, The SIxth Heaven.

Your kind compliments comment to our staff have been shared with entire team and posted to our staff board, especially Rung, Tom, and Nicky are more than happy to hear you. Guest compliments always give us the greatest pleasure reading them.

Regarding your comments about our music (I do remember I have talked to you about this case upon your departure), we have been working on selecting music according to our outlet's concept, and also by time and weather. I am sad that you did not enjoy some of our 80s music. However, your comment have been shared within management team to improve our music selection.

As we have discussed together in the resort, we have been fully aware of Thai concept need in the Restaurant. Our Restaurant Manager and Chef are currently working on with Thai decoration, theme, and even special Thai uniform. Moreover, Paradee is planning to have Siam Night as a theme night once a week, which provides guest with real Thai food and environment. Especially your seat, I still do remember you always sit right next to the bar in the Restaurant.

There are 2 ways to get to town, one is by Taxi (does not belong to hotel), and the other one is by our speed boat. Paradee has only private speed boat to the town at the moment which makes the boat price high. However, your comment has been shared as another service option.

Once again, thank you very much for your stay with us and valuable comments.

Paradee Team is looking forward to welcome you back in sooner future.

On a lovely, private beach with gorgeous sand and plenty of old trees providing shade. In fact, one of the most beautiful beaches I have seen (unlike that at the other end of Samet, which is crowded with cheap bars and restaurants). It is isolated, so 3-4 days is probably enough, (except perhaps for honeymooners)
As many others have commented, it promotes itself as a couples resort (a number of same-sex couples were there when we visited), rather than a family resort.
The villas are great and easily accomodate extra beds for kids, but we had to push hard for this - they tried to persuade us to rent a second villa for our 8-year-old kids! We had a beach-front villa with pool and I thoroughly recommend this choice. (NB Samet is in an area at low risk of tsunami!) The food was pretty ordinary, and the menu doesn't change which is a downside, as there is no-where else to go without a 20 min ride on the back of a pick-up. The service was pleasant, but amateurish. Lots of staff, but little evidence of active management.
In conclusion, a beautiful place, a good choice for a few quiet days at the beach, but has so much more potential.......

Room Tip: Perfect for a few lazy days on a beautiful beach

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you for staying with us and for your detailed feedback. We sincerely appreciate your time in posting insights of your recent stay in Paradee, The Sixth Heaven.

Paradee, The Sixth Heaven is a romantic couple resort. However, our children guest are always welcomed as well. Your remark about foods menu is one of our concerns that we have been working on with the management team to provide best food with best ingredients to our Paradee guests.

Through your valuable comment, it has been a good case study for us to improve our service and active management involve as Paradee's goal is to exceed guest's expectation.

I do hope that you will indeed be able to come back and see us again soon. Thank you for your kind comments.

This resort was just paradise lovely quiet white clean private beach which the beach boys worked hard cleaning every day.The sea was clean and a lovely colour. Really peaceful resort with very helpful and friendly staff from the minute we arrived at the jetty to catch the speedboat until we left the island with several of the staff waving us off. Tom the boy working at the beach bar was exceptional always there looking after us with a smile and nothing too much trouble for him.
The garden pool villa we had was lovely and private and very spacious and nicely furnished. The resort was always clean and the staff would bring ice cream, fruit, afternoon tea to us always with a smile. The food in the resturant was always good and the sunset bar was always a nice place to sit in the evening and watch the sunset. The management always took the time to chat to us. We stayed 12 days and wished we could have stayed longer.We will stay there again as it was just wonderful and peaceful.

We head heard of the place and were pretty sure that it would live up to expectations - but in all ways, this is pretty much the best place we have stayed at ever! From the way we were recieved by the staff, the service through the stay, the food, not to forget the fantastic Villa we had - can recommend nr 202, very quit and "discrete" - to the way they said Farewell! And not to forget the quiteness, you very much feel that you have the place for yourself.

A blissful holiday on a beautiful, small, peaceful island. Everything was perfect from the moment we stepped into the speed boat till our last precious moment on the island. Our villa was beautiful, a cozy patio where we enjoyed our afternoon tea, our own jacuzzi swimming pool. The villas have a separate living area with a Lavazza coffee machine, every morning I would wake up to the sounds of the island and that was the moment that I would enjoy the beginning of the day sitting outside, sipping my coffee and listening to the sound of the sea and the forest, a moment for inspiration and reflection Breakfast was perfect.After breakfast a 30 minutes gym time. Gym is small but if you are not a sports freak then it is more than enough. Beach time was great, the beach boys brought us fresh water, ice cream time at 2 p.m., tea time between 3 & 5. Canapes with your drink at the Sunset bar. Dinner, on the beach was something that we really enjoyed. The staff were fantastic all of them, we were really spoiled and pampered by all of them. I want to say thank you to all the staff, unfortunately I don't know all the names but the few I know I will mention- NICKY, TOM, PANCAKE, NATALIE, RUNG. Thank you for making our holiday a special one, thank you to the chambermaids, the cooks, the gardeners, the beach boys, the waiters and waitresses. We normally don't go to the same place twice, but Paradee will see us soon. Paradee is a place to get away from it all, and if you are looking for harmony and serenity and you want to cast off your everyday cares, then this is the place.
A perfect setting for a relaxing holiday so if you are looking for nightlife then this is not the place for you, but if you are looking for a place where you can relax, swim, sleep, eat, read and be with your loved one then this is it.

Dear Valued Guest,

I would like to thank you for choosing Paradee, The Sixth Heaven as your preferred accommodation during your recent visit in Koh Samet and for taking the time to write us a comment on tripadvisor.

As you have mentioned, Paradee always focuses on a small detail touch such as Ice-cream serving at the pool and Afternoon tea serving in the villa to exceed our guests' expectation.

Your comment has been shared among the entire team, and of course all of us were more than happy to know this, especially, NICKY, TOM, PANCAKE, NATALIE and RUNG. Your compliment has lifted them up and of course, encourage them to deliver their best effort to ensure our guest will be satisfied during their stay with us.

Thank you again for sharing your experience, and we do hope that you will visit us again to serve you in the near future.

We stayed at a private villa with a pool at Paradee for five days on our honeymoon trip. It was a heavenly place, secluded, private. the staff was helpful, and even served complimentary fruits and drinks at the beach. the afternoon tea, which is even served at your villa, was a treat. So basically the only meal you have the resort is the dinner.

The choice of the resturant is limited, so you get bored eating at the same resturant every day.

The breakfast is lavish and has a good choice of menu. the sunset bar, which has an amazing sunset view is a must do.
Paradee is steep, and expensive, but is an awesome experience, with your own private pool, jacuzzi... if you can afford it, great,. but you can get great places in koh samed, at much lesser price.
also, they should experiment with more resturants.. the closest beach is an hr away, and has some great eating places, but it difficutl to get to it. you have to hire a private cab from paradee or if you can share it with some guests.
