“Very nice stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2007

We stayed at the resort for 6 nights and we enjoyed every minute. The bungalows are extremely nice - great design and interior. The beach is fantastic and the pool area likewise. The staff is extremely friendly - their English is poor which coursed some minor misunderstandings in the restaurant. The food selection on the menu is poor but the kitchen can make everything that you ask for which helped a lot. The quality of the food was excellent.
All in all we had a fantastic stay and would recommend it any time. Don’t go if you are looking for action in the evening and shopping/restaurants close by - the resort is very isolated which is fantastic if that is what you are looking for.

If you are looking for a quiet, beautiful setting for your holiday, give this resort some serious consideration.

This resort is on Koh Samat - a small, relatively undiscovered island (compared with Phuket or Koh Samui) less than 3 hours drive / speedboat from Bangkok. And Paradee is relatively small resort on the least populated part of this island. Meet and greet is on the mainland at Rayong, then transfer on a private speedboat.

Accomodation - we opted to stay in a beach front pool villa. Everything you would expect from a 5 star beach resort villa. And quite literally on the beach. 20 steps from the water, or 1 step from the private plunge pool.

Service - Generally very good. Odd minor hick up here and there, but nothing that would stop us complementing them.

Food - A bit of a limited choice (of western and thai dishes), but when we ask for something not on the menu, the chef made it. Generally good quality and well presented. Bakery products particularly good and must have been made on-site.

Environment - Beautifully maintained gardens, retaining a 'natural' feel about them. Clean sandy beach. Clear, warm water. Resort is beautifully lit at night. Felt very safe.

Price - We had a package that included 5 nights / breakfast / one dinner / afternoon tea (in the villa). Considerably cheaper than similar standard resort in Phuket. However extra ( drinks / other meals where a lttle bit pricy).

Overall, wonderful place for an anyone wanting relax / unwind / 'way from it all' holiday. Not the best choice for teenagers or young adults who want lots of evening entertainment, or a lively beach scene.

  • Liked — Right on the beach
  • Disliked — Internet access was a bit slow
  • Tips/Secrets — Buy a bottle of your favourite drink before leaving the mainland - save money

This is only our 2nd review, because usually we are too busy and/or too less impressed to take our time. We visited a lot of top end hotels in Asia and so this one end of November for a 5 day stay in a beach front pool villa. The room itself is meeting all expectations you have when booking in this price range. Really outstanding is the privacy you enjoy. The quality of breakfast / afternoon tea / dinner is great (thanks to Harry, chef/hotelmanager/ food and beverage manager in one person). If you don't want to socialise with the crowd take it on your terrace but be aware of the mosquitos between sunset and 8 pm. The water quality and colour is outstanding, sand and beach faboulous, you can feed the corralfish without the need of diving because you just put your hand with your breakfast roll in the water below the hotel pier at which you arrive and depart with one of the 2 hotel owned corralreef friendly boats. Go on with the good work Paradee and teach your guests not to destroy this wondeful sanctuary.
