I just spent 3 nights at the Paradee Resort and it was a perfect get away. First off, after a few days in Bangkok I'm always ready to break away from the city and chill out. I've been to most of the Islands around this area and this was nice for a few reasons, first off you don't have to fly there - it's about 2 hours South East of Bangkok then a 30 minute boat ride (speed boat). Secondly, there's no extremely loud obnoxious places to assault you, you have to go find them, they are not "in your face". And finally, the island is small and not heavily traveled (yet). Ok, back to Paradee...
Paradee is done to Western standards and everything is top notch. The buildings, rooms, pools, beach, service, spa, food choices, and general vibe is 5 star. It's still exotic enough and peaceful so my stay was perfect. It's probably one of the more perfect honeymoon spots I've encountered. The rooms are large with everything attended to. The Spa was awesome and the massage, mani-pedi was great. The food is authentic if you want Thai, and the Western menu was also great (I had pasta that was perfectly done).
