      Good Hotel and nice bay”

      We are visiting Koh Samet regularly. We enjoy that the staff is taking care about the luggage beginning at the Ao Prao pier. Also from up now the speed boot is driving directly to this bay, this is very convenient. This Hotel but in general this area is very recommended to everyone who want to enjoy the quietness. Always in this bay the see is quiet and the kids can play in the water or drive with the canoe. Not so far from the hotel you can book a motorcycle to explore the island. Every Friday and Saturday you can see a great fireshow infringe of the hotel. In general we can recommend it.

      Perfect resort on beautiful beach.”

      The resort is absolutely perfect maintained with great staff. Beach is small but great. It's by far the most beautiful place on Koh Samet. You need a scooter to go to other places, allthough a good restaurant is just next to the resort. They have good service to bring you back to the mainland by speedboat, but no pick-up when you arrive. The restaurant is really (too) expensive according to what you get for it: that's the only thing they have to change. But on Koh Samet you should choose Ao Prao Resort as your place to stay.

      Rare Sunset beach: Best snorkeling/ beach”

      If Ao Prao isn’t sold out, it’s the best place on Koh Samet BY FAR; other beaches aren’t even close. Why? This beach is the only west facing, sunset facing beach on Samet - worth its weight in gold. Not only that, but this beach also has the best, easiest snorkeling and stand up paddling conditions on the island. This bay is protected from the weather which hits mostly the east shore. So it’s calm here when other east facing beaches have more waves and wind. The whole island is nice, but if you want to impress your date with ideal setting, prettiest photos, nice sunsets and safest easiest and prettiest snorkeling and water sports; this is your beach. On a negative note, the food isn’t as delicious and it’s also more expensive. Those on a strict budget won’t appreciate the high menu prices. But the biggest problem is finding a room. There are only 3 resorts on this beach, 2 owned by the same owner, so you’ll often see “sold out” when booking. This is THE place to stay on Koh Samet if you book early enough to get the rooms around 2500 baht per night. Wait too late like we did, and not only will you have to pay 3500 for the same room, but MAYBE, the Saturday of your 3 night stay will be sold out! Note: you might pay 300 baht, or 650 baht for a one hour stand up paddle board!! 650 is a rip off, so be careful. An extraordinary, important change has happened. For the first time in years, you can rent motorbikes from this beach!!!! Also very important: Ao Prao resorts have their own large comfortable speed boats to the island, to and from Ban Phe. Included for free for guests. It’s soooo nice to feel checked in from the private pier. They handle your bags and transfer them to and from the boat to the hotel truck transport to the hotel. This is truly more value than you can imagine... In summary, this is the best beach on Samet. Nothing else comes close. The only sunset beach. And most snorkeling is only on this beach. Easy stand up paddling only t
