To Markus,Nutt, Natalie and all the staff at Paradee,
A huge thank you to all of you from the bottom of our hearts. Your service, help and advice was out of this world. The attention to detail, professionalism and all round care for our guests and ourselves was the best we have experienced on any holiday we have had.
We will see you again next year for our first anniversary.
Love from Haruka & Kevin.

Room Tip: Go all out and get a beachfront villa with pool

Hold onto your wallets!
Paradee is exceptional - the staff provide first class service with a smile (I couldn't believe how happy all the staff are!), and if you take the hotels small speed boat from Rayong, you are greeted on the beach by perhaps 5 people with cool towels, and that big welcoming "Sawadee".

The resort itself is tucked away on the southern part of the island, in a calm bay owned by the Hotel. (There is security to keep the riff raff away!) The beach is excellent, dog free, and clean - with lovely white coral sand, and plenty of places to park your bum and drink a cocktail. (You can bath on one side of the island for Sunset, and the other for sunrise - 5 minutes walk apart!)

The resort has a top notch Spa, where you can relax with your Mia Noi, and enjoy first class pampering, or surprise the wife with a 3 hour soak in a bath of essential oils, along with five star snoring, as your troubles are massaged away in air conditioned luxury.
I had an amazing 2.5 hour massage which flew by, as I snored the whole 2.5 hours away!
I think this was around 6,000 bahts.

I failed to look closely at the menus, but I can tell you the Thai food, and western food my guest and I had was very good, filling, and flavoursome, and the wine excellent.
We bought a bottle of gin at I believe 4500 baht, which is pricey, but worth it if your liable to consume a few!

I think there is only one restaurant, which might surprise a few people, (Open all day it seems) but this is a cosy five star Villa resort, and not a all inclusive, package holiday target.
We went 2 weeks ago, and it was lovely and quiet, and the sun blessed us with an exceptional weekend.

There is a lovely Pool, with a swim up bar if you need it, but if you book a pool villa, takle your mini bar, and don't worry about being on the beach - all the Villas are only a short strole to the beach anyway. I spent most of my time in my villa with very few clothes on, sleeping and did I say, snoring!

My friend and I took a taxi (Booked by the hotel) to a busier part of the island for the evening (I should have learned the name, but didn't!) it took about 20 fun filled minutes on some crazy pot holed roads (Charge 500 baht), but at the end was a lovely string of beach restaurants, and a night club on the beach!) - but know this- if the weather is bad, these roads will be closed for certain, and you will be stuck at the resort, and appart from lazing around, the incredible massages, drinking and eating fine food, canoeing, swimming in the calm beautiful waters, and snoring - there is nothing to do !!

This is a couples/ honeymooners short break dream - or a blast away from Bangkok to take a break as I did - but if your looking for things to do, this is the wrong island.

Finally, this is a first class Hotel, absolutely five star, and exceptional service - and the cost accordingly. We took the Speed boat, two Pool Villas (Not on beach), ate and drank when we felt like it and the bill was 80,000 baht! (Around £1500 total) - for a weekend of tom foolery - This is NOT for the faint hearted, or weak of wallet - but you do get what you pay for and I will be returning with my wife in a couple of months.

our 3 night stay at paradee resort was perfect. from the staff welcome as we arrived to the near non-stop complimentary extras (ice buckets full of water, fruit and ice cream by the pool, awesome afternoon tea), paradee go out of their way to ensure your time with them is truly special. villas are beautiful, food is awesome. i can't fault a thing. a perfect end to our honeymoon!

We stayed for 3 days at Paradee and overall were impressed with the villa, facilities and staff. The food was well prepared and a good selection offered. Pricing is very "western" but that seems to be normal for most 5 star resorts in this area.

Had an absolutely amazing eleven nights here. It was everything a (peaceful, private, get away from the stress and pressure of work) break should be. Attention to detail and discretion were fabulous. Been around the globe and this is one of my favourite places for privacy and relaxation. Staff are marvellous, each and every one. If it's total bliss you are looking for then this is it. If it's nightlife and bright lights then stay away. Originally booked for four nights but extended our stay as it ticked all of the boxes. The spa experience is an absolute must. Marcus your staff are a credit to you.

We booked 2 rooms in Paradee, Koh Samed, in August 2012. Our experience was everything we had hoped for. The accommodation was excellent. The food was varied and of a very high standard, but we have to say that we always enjoy Thai food when we visit Thailand and we can't comment on the international cuisine.

The beach was white sand and the sea was clear. The swimming pools dominated our stay for our children. If you travel as a family, you have to be prepared that the island is quiet and secluded, so not much activity, but a peaceful situation.

What made our time particularly enjoyable was the high standard servive. All the Paradee staff welcomed us with a smile and it seemed that whenever there was the slightest problem, it would be fixed immediately.

We will be back next year!

Ever have that experience of paying 5 Star prices and getting 4 or 3 Star service? Well this is not one of those experiences. Quite the opposite.
Everything about this wonderful resort hotel says, luxury, relaxation and beauty. And the care and attention of the staff is of the very hightest quality.
Prepare to be pampered within an inch of your life.
The villas are just awesome, with romantic four poster bed, outdoor bath, private plunge pool and sun deck.
They say the sign of great service, is being able to anticipate what the customer wants, even before the customer knows they want it. Well at Paradee they were able to anticipate our need for fresh tropical fruits by the pool at about 12pm every day, followed by our need for some 'off the charts' ice cream at 1pm and then afternoon tea shortly after 2pm. And all with the compliments of the hotel.
We chose this resort because of the positive reviews we read on trip advisor and now feel compelled to leave our own review. We were booked to stay for 9 days but extended our stay another day, becasue quite simply we couldn't bear to leave.
A stay in Paradee is what I imagined it would be like if I had won the Lottery. Turns out you only have to pay 5 Star prices for this truly 7 Star experience.
