It’s time for an active holiday - one filled with the likes of sailing, windsurfing, snorkeling, diving, fishing, boating, swimming, and bike riding! The Ao Prao Resort offers the opportunity to partake in all of these activities and much more, as well as the chance to relax in a tropical-styled cottage when it’s all over. The property is a bit isolated, but that only makes it feel more private and self-contained, which can be a much-appreciated feature when hanging out on the beach. The location on the westward side of Koh Samet gives sunbathers extra time to soak up the rays if they so choose. Ao Prao Resort can be easily booked with our secure online booking form. Simply enter your dates and click to proceed.

Our first time in Koh Samet. As we booked quite last minute we only managed to book a hillside room which was still lovely. We were right at the top so we actually had a lovely panoramic view of the beach. We had free transportation from the Ban Phe pier straight to the resort which saved us a lot of time and money. Very quite and relaxing area and not overly crowded. The staff at the resort were lovely. We would have liked more activities around the resort as pools closed at 8pm and there wasn’t much left to do in the evening. Other than that, we cannot fault the resort. Highly recommended.
Wonderful trip In Koh Samet”
We had a splendid vacation In Ao Prao Resort. The place is such a paradise. Very quiet and peaceful location. Not much to do there but taxi cost 200 baht to Sai Kaew Beach, where you can find a bit more organized boat trips etc. Very kind and polite staff and excellent service. You dont have to matter your luggage anytime (they will carry it to your room when check-in and also during check-out). We strongly recommend Ao Prao Resort for couples who enjoy to be just together. Nice and veryyy clean beaches but watch out sea urchins. with swimming shoes no problem at all though. Only con was a little too high prices (food).
Stunning resort. Clean beach. Friendly staff”
Stayed in deluxe sea view. For almost $400 per night I would expect more luxury/space. Overall the facilities were great. Good choice at breakfast. I’d stay here again but wouldn’t pay that much for the sea view room again.
Relaxing break,very recommended.”
Third stay at this resort.Hotel very organized.Speedy efficient boat transfer and check in from Ao Prao Pier.Special thanks to Khun Bill at reception for a very friendly welcome and Food and Beverage Manager Khun Phaiboon.Evening dining at Ao Prao was very nice.I live in Thailand and hope to visit again soon.
Great easy getaway”
Very much enjoyed our short 2 day stay. Check-in at Ao Prao Pier/Ban was not clear on first page of confirmation. Otherwise chevk-in and complimentary boat transfer was very efficient. Khun Bill at reception wa very helpful-thank you.Would return for sure!!!
Rooms were great! Boat transfer was nice and easy. Food was amazing. The beach, wow!
Nice pool, good beach location and great staff”
Staff is very friendly, 2 swimming pools available and you can also use swimming pool and fitness from another resort nearby, speed boat and taxi service bundled, private and great location beach.
Terrific breakaway. ”
We really enjoyed our stay. Included speedboat transfer was very straightforward, quick and good fun too. Rooms a good size with good facilities, lovely view, clean and tidy. Lots of extras provided in rooms: bottles of water, tea and coffee making, fridge, hairdryer, various toiletries, fruit on arrival. Good range of food at breakfast. The resort is lovely and nice to be able to use the other restaurants, pools etc. The sea is warm and shallow with some snorkelling near to the rocks at either end of the bay. Staff friendly and attentive. A great place to relax and enjoy the surroundings. Some good environmental elements too: paper straws, little jars for yoghurt (no plastic!), staff awareness good. We will be looking to return.
Highly recommanded - Most beautiful resort at a beautiful island”
The island is a dream as was the Ao Prap Location we stayed. Everything was perfect. They offer three restaurants. All are good but I have to say the italian restaurant was surprisingly good too. Thanks again to all the staff for the amazing hospitality. We really dont remember to have had a stay like this anywhere else.
Ao Prao Resort”
Best beach place to stay just 3 hours away from Bangkok, perfect for family and whoever wants to relax and enjoy nature far from the noise and pollution. Staff are very attentive to every details, great breakfast. Overall great experience.
Good Location.....plastic on the beach and in the water”
Loved the room....awesome bathroom. Good food. Friendly and helpful Staff. Major problem I have with windward side beaches....PLASTIC. On the beach and IN THE WATER. I would return here, but would not plan to go into the water.
Great location. Peaceful place. ”
Feedback time; Absolutely yes 👍to go to this side of Koh Samed. The other side (east) is very busy noisy and totally full of tourists. A big NO for us. If you want peace and quiet and a relaxing time with pretty much just the sound of the waves and beautiful water - this is it. Food OK here although it’s a pity they have changed the wonderful Thai food to be westernized, meaning not spicy. Thai food should be spicy 🌶 and taste chili, coriander etc, otherwise it’s just some western rice dishes with a look of Thailand 🇹🇭 . Breakfast was rather poor but everything else good and to satisfaction. Staff nice, friendly and happy.
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?
Staff , cleanness, comfortable and the view are totally amazing”
The room is very large and comfortable, super friendly staff, should improve breakfast a little bit.
Very good for staffs
A corner of Paradise”
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!
Wonderful place with quiet beach.”
A very nice hotel with a wonderful beach. Services outstanding. Speed boat to the resort. The rooms and facilities perfect. We loved the food and the cocktails. Perfect location to enjoy the nice island feeling without going very far from Bangkok. Will visit again.
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.
