expensive resort with a dirty beach
private though dirty beach, nice lush cottages
The resort itself is a bit remote, but the private beach was full of trash and rocky sand compared to the public beaches like Hat Sai Kaeo which has fine light-colored sand. Literally, there was a whole glass fluorescent light bulb (the 3-ft long kind) lying on the supposed private exclusive Ao Prao beach. There are like only 3 free shuttles to the island from Rayong. We missed our 1.30pm shuttle, the next free hotel shuttle was at 4pm. So we had to pay 2000B to get a private one, or risk wasting an hour on the public ferry and then having to fine our way to the hotel. The taxis there were an interesting experience. They are green-colored trucks and customers ride on the back of the trucks going full speed on bumpy off-roading rides. The rooms are nice and cute. The food at the resort was terrible and overpriced, but there was nothing else in the area since the resort is remote from the other beaches. We rented a scooter to drive around the island. The roads are pretty bad, unpaved, and rocky, quite dangerous at night. But drive to the bigger public beaches for beach food like cheap papaya salad.

Absolutely charming hotel, amazing staff!!!!
Private beach, beautiful charming location, genuine staff gave best service I've had anywhere, cabins are clean, location is perfect, the Thai food is 10/10 very romantic and relaxing.
This resort is a cluster of cabins carved into the side of a hill. It's 4 star but the staff are 5 star. It really is a unique experience. The setting is on the beautiful private beach shared with 2 small resorts. U can use the amenities at either resort because they are the same company. From the moment you arrive you are treated like royalty, welcome Drinks, and staff that take care of every need, The restaurant has fantastic variety of Thai food and farang food. You have your own personal waiter that stands by and fills your glass, offers u what u need as you need it. I was impressed. And the staff is genuinely happy and caring. Not like some Thai resorts where the smiles are not genuine. Really enjoined the stay. The hotel rooms were really inexpensive for what you get and where it is. I paid approx $100 USD per night during low season. This is the best value on the island. U get 4 star comfort, 5 star service, and private beach with stunningly charming surroundings (the natural surroundings spill into the resort making it really special). The prices in the restaurant are a bit expensive for thailand ($7-12 USD for a meal) but with that said you do get fantastic food it's still a good value because the food is top notch and the view from where u eat is 10/10. Also this resort is about 10 minute taxi from the main area of the island. It's nice because it's away from the noise and crowds. It's seclude and private and you could enjoy days here without leaving. Especially if it's a romantic getaway with relaxing in mind.

great beach with nice rooms
beach, hotel staff and seafood buffet
first time to ao prao, not as crowed as ao chao, sai keaw or ao phai, if you prefer a quiet beach with little disturbance, this is the one. also, a pickup taxi to the fun beaches only take 200 baht. hotel staff is great and the hotel rooms are even better. really like this beach and the hotel. if we have to complain, it would be the massage staff. it seems that the booking for massage never works. after you pay the full amount of massage and make a reservation, you will only find that all massues are occupied. abit dissapointed.

room was to dark, but comfortable.
the beach was nice and the water was great to swim in.
the first room was up alot of stairs and away from the beach. the air conditioner quit working, so we were upgraded to a bungalow in front of the beach, which was nice.

Nice place for long weekends
nice beach, good food
Hotel was nice and clean, we enjoyed the pool and the beach. My only problem was that the staff did not speak much English and quite often mixed up our orders. I would expect more from a hotel that accommodate lot of international guests. But in general we had nice stay and would not mind to come back.

Great beach resort
location, cottages, food
a perfect hotel for a realxing holiday. good food and service and the rooms were really nice. very quite and peaceful. possibility to have dinner at the beach, very recomended. we ordered a sea view cottage but the palm trees blocked view of the sea. wifi at the hotel but didn't reach to our room.
