Great accommodation, fantastic beach. Highly recommend. If you want to be more adventurous with dining out, you catch the open taxis to the main town area but the food at this resort will not disappoint.

    Quiet, serene, beautiful--Koh Samed”
    If you want a quiet retreat, rest, reading, planning with a special person, Ao Prao Resort is the best. It is not the party-side of the island, but it is the place to watch the sunset every night and relax in a secluded and wonderful place. The food at the four restaurants steps from your room are all great, but the service can be slow, but who is in a hurry here?

    It is walking distance to saikaew town/beach prob will take a good hour or so depends on your fitness level. Taxi to town cost flat rate of 200baht. The beach here by far is the prettiest and most quiet. Not much option for variety of foods. It is just resorts on this side of “town”. Sunsets are amazing. Hotel wise..we enjoyed it. Great place to have relaxed for a couple of days.

    I've been in Koh Samet several times, since I live in Bangkok and Samet is the closest Island to the city. I've always been on the other side of the Island but, definitively, I will come back here every time I visit the Island. My girlfriend and me are really in love with this resort and with this beach

    Enjoyed the trip because of this hotel”
    Ao Prao Resort and the Beach were the saving grace for our weekend trip at Ko Samed. It was raining the whole day when we arrived. And frankly the island for us was just so-so (comparing to Ko Sichang!). The Resort was beautiful, the beach was clean, private and the water was much calmer on this side of the island than on the east side. The beach also sloped very gradually out into the sea so there is a good distance out to swim that is not too deep. There are 2 resort chains at Ao Prao beach, Le Vimarn which also runs Ao Prao, and Lima Coco. Both hotels kept the beach well maintained. Staff at Ao Prao (and Le Vimarn) are very friendly and attentive. They waited for your arrival by the beach (even in the rain!) and a bunch of staff would help send each guest off as well. Special thanks to the reception team for making it possible for us to change our boat time home at the last minute! The food was also delicious! Make sure to watch the fire show. The finale was epic!

    Good deal for Samet!”
    Samet is not a cheap destination in thailand, but Ao Prao is definitely a good deal Pro: location on the best beach, room super modern and nice, nice pool Cons: kids in the adult pool! There are 1 pool for kid and 1 for adults only but there were kids in the adult pool... the staff should told them it is not allowed. Sea was not super clean as well, but the hotel is not resposnible and this is true in every beach...

    Amazing Beach Side Paradise”
    This is a truly wonderful resort set on an amazing beach. The room was well appointed and clean. The staff were helpful and the resort had decent food. The free speed boat service from the mainland is very convenient and makes up for some of the price difference between this report and other son more crowded beaches elsewhere on the island.

    Nice resort with excellent service”
    My friends and I stayed here for 3 nights for our Xmas holiday. The service is extraordinary and the restaurants are all fantastic! We did a day tour to islands but we were so regret that we should spend the time on our own private beach at the resort. Our beach is far nicer and cleaner than those on the island and the water is much clearer! Don't bother to pay extra to get on those islands which are full of tourists and rubbish and you can only see few corals. There are more fishes though. Though I suspect some of my money left inside the room got stolen. I don't feel so bad as their management handled it properly. They did act quickly and checked the surveillance and trying to sort things out, which I really appreciate. Now I am awaiting the feedback from them and hope they will give me a proper answer. And I also found myself responsible as I didn't put the money in lock. But all in all, it's a pleasant stay and we would recommend this to our friends definitely.

    location, quiet, sea view
    Very poor booking experience with Agoda.com, the website cookie or whatever non-sense date picking logic resetted my checkin date to a Friday instead of a Saturday as initially specified, as this was a flash sale the hotel refused to amend my booking, consequently I lost that night. So make sure to triple check the date of your booking before confirming it. I personally think the hotel should have been flexible, we called the hotel and Agoda right after the booking was made... We still stayed on Saturday and Sunday and had a really great time, breakfast was average but amazing location, rooms, service and cleanliness was very good. I would definitely recommend this hotel and overall Agoda for their great rates.

    A near perfect beach retreat.”
    Fantastic Location, Food (especially smoothies) beach and staff.
    we stayed here for four nights and never have we felt more relaxed! the rooms are simple but delightful; everything you need with perhaps the one exception of a slightly temperamental air conditioner. it is wonderfully located on the quiet side of the island, but only a short taxi ride from all the night life. the beach is stunning and the sea is like a warm bath! dining at any of the resorts' affiliated restaurants is a treat and the talented duo (a two man house band) provide warm engaging entertainment. this coupled with the kind patience and smiles of (the majority) of the staff gives ao prao a gentle, welcoming atmosphere, perfect for families or couples seeking a relaxing break.
