Sai Kaew Beach Resort (SHA Plus+)
Sai Kaew Beach,Koh Samet - View on map
"The hotel is located in the middle of the town (I mean Koh Samet is small, but you can call this spot middle of the town). Next to the hotel you have the beach, the longest in Koh Samet with great restaurants and entertainment. The breakfast is ok, but needs some attention from the F&B Manager. But the breakfast in the other hotels are far behind this hotels, yes, checked! The room is spotless and there is nothing to complain about it, it is big and nice. The hotel staff is very attentive and don't forget to tip the cleaning lady, you will be suprised about some suprises:). I can recommend a stay in this hotel, I think it is still the best hotel on Koh Samet. Via the motorcycle you can go to all other beaches and it was funny, you can hang around in the other hotels too, just have a drink at their bar. "

Samed Villa Resort (SHA Extra Plus)
Ao Phai,Koh Samet - View on map
"Good, quiet location on Ao Phai beach in Koh Samet. Would definitely return and recommend this resort to other travellers. The downside of the resort had no signal for certain mobile services and the hotel had wifi issues which was a bit of a let down. Other than that we had a great time."

Samet Ville Resort
Ao Wai,Koh Samet - View on map
"Stayed with my boyfriend. Bed very big, and very comfortable for Thailand! It had a sheet, a blanket and a nice pillow. Big, clean room with a view of the sea through floor to ceiling windows. Aircon worked powerfully and there was a fan option. There was one chair in front of the cottage. Food at the resort was usually very good, but take my advice and don't order a baked potato in the day - only from the evening bbq! Also the cheese isn't real cheese, it is burger style plastic cheese. The service was sometimes painfully slow, which didn't matter too much unless you were eating before going on a trip, but it was a little frustrating. My favourites were seafood green curry and pork bbq stick. The beach was amazing and not too busy. Much, much nicer than the other beaches we saw on the island. It had two snorkelling points that were deserted and peaceful. The resort has home made wooden swings hanging from the trees all over the place, some can fit three people at a time and are a lot of fun. There are hammocks too. There is a nice pool but we didn't go in as people with long hair must wear a swimming cap - and we prefer the sea anyway! The people staying at the resort were mainly families and couples, with a few groups of friends. They were mainly foreign with a few Thai visitors. The roads are extremely bumpy, and the taxis are more like jeeps. Make sure you get in one that has padding on the seat or you will get a sore bum! It costs 450 baht to go one way from the pier on Koh Samet to Ao Wai beach. It costs 400 baht one way to go in a taxi to the popular Diamond Beach from Ao Wai. I recommend taking a private speedboat straight to the resort from Ban Phe pier, because if you take the normal ferry you have to climb over loads of other boats at Koh Samet pier, and sometimes jump some big gaps between boats, though there are boat boys to help you with your bags. Also you don't have to bother with taxis at the other end!"

Le Vimarn Cottages & Spa (SHA Plus+)
Ao Prao,Koh Samet - View on map
"I have stayed on Koh Samet more times that is sensible and I’ve stayed at all different levels of accommodation. The biggest difference between Le Vimarn and all the others is that this place is a real resort. Most of the little bungalows are just that! A bungalow and a small restaurant. Le Vimarn has it all – a spectacular infinity pool, lovely spa, great sun loungers on the beach and several restaurants to choose from. Obviously because you’re getting a LOT more here than at the other places, you’re going to pay for it! Le Vimarn is CONSIDERABLY more expensive than any other bungalow accommodation on Koh Samet. This hotel is also situated on the “other” side of the island, which can be annoying if you’re wanting to party until late or be around lots of people, as you’ll need to get a taxi at 200B each way. I think the best advice for this place is you need to evaluate what you want from your stay on Koh Samet. If you’re going with friends and want to party – then this is definitely not the place to stay. If you’re going with your partner and want something romantic – then you can’t do better! It is also great for families as it’s not as busy as the other side."

Samed Grandview Resort
Sai Kaew Beach,Koh Samet - View on map
"Samed Grand View Resort is situated on SaiKaew beach, the largest of the beaches on Koh Samet. Here the water is clean and very nice for swimming. As the largest beach on Koh Samet there is plenty of choice when it comes to dining and other attractions. The hotel is nice, bungalows and hotel blocks in a nice garden setting, just off the beach. The hotel restaurant is beautiful with a lovely view of the beach."

Ao Cho Grandview Hideaway Resort
Ao Cho,Koh Samet - View on map
"If you want a 5 Star resort holiday then Koh Samet isn't the place for you because they don't exist. If you are flexible and can accept a few annoyances than this is a great place. I really liked this hotel. The rooms were comfortable, the food was fine, the beach was clean, staff were friendly and it's close to Wongduen beach which has many more restaurants and entertainment. The hotel is being renovated, but they weren't working the week we were there. There are millions of mosquitoes but this is all over Koh Samet (take repellant). We got a very good deal on the rooms we had so to us it was great value. For what we wanted it was perfect. "

Samed Cabana Resort (SHA Extra Plus)
Ao Wongduan,Koh Samet - View on map
"I stayed in Koh Samet 30 years ago, too many tourists now in the main beach area, luckily I noticed the Samed Cabana a couple of beaches south on Agoda, much cleaner beach and less congested , big bonus was I could book online as I was inspecting the facilities on the resorts WiFi"

Silver Sand Hotel (SHA Plus+)
Ao Phai,Koh Samet - View on map
"Close to the beach made it easy to walk up and down to the room between hanging out at the beach and relaxing in the room. Food was good at decent rates, only possible drawback was that the staff sometimes were more busy talking to each other rather then looking after the customers, without it being a huge problem but this was the feeling we had at times. In general they were kind and helpful though so it is nothing I would bring up as a huge negative. Just more of an observation. Other than that the room was big, big bed and a balcony with a sitting group. Only thing they could have added was a sitting group inside the room as it was more than enough room for it. They had a small fridge to keep our drinks cool, a neat bathroom with hot water showers and the standard was very good. Television was pretty up to date and the room was clean. All in all a very decent room for the price. It is a very good place for those who wants to be close to the beach, especially couples and families. They had a bar/disco belonging to the hotel that was very active during the night so if you want to have a couple of drinks during night time the option is there. Fire show and modern pop disco music with an external bar next to it so you could also sit outside if you think the music is too loud. My overall opinion of the place is that it is more suitable for those who want a calm and relaxing stay, with the option of going to a close bar to hang out as well. If I would go back to Koh Samet this would absolutely be an option for me."

Paradee Resort (SHA Plus+)
Ao Kiew,Koh Samet - View on map
" It took us 6 weeks to find a place which would suit our expectations on a holiday, full of relaxation, great food, great service and an exclusive location. Paradee Resort in Koh Samet fit the description to the letter. Relaxation - 10 out of 10 Food - 10 out of 10 (Both asian and western cuisine superb) Especially the spaghetti carbonara) Service - 10 out of 10 (Staff are very friendly and aren't over the top.) Location - 10 out of 10 (can only get to the resort by speed boat. Makes it feel more exclusive especially when they drive out the pier from the beach.) We were invited to a meet and greet cocktail party with all the Paradee management team, this was a great idea as it showed that the team had an interest in there guests. In all, thanks again to Kung, Marcus, Piero, Natalie, Patty, Ping Pong, Ming and the entire Paradee team. Peace out. "

More about Koh Samet

One of the most beautiful Thai islands, Koh Samet serves as a popular getaway for Bangkok residents, owing to its proximity to the country's capital. A full range of accommodation can be found on its beaches, the most popular areas for travelers being Ao Prao and Sai Kaew. A large proportion of Koh Samet is national parkland, and international visitors are required to pay a small fee to enter.

The main point of arrival on Samet is Na Dan Village, where ferries from Ban Phe Pier in Rayong arrive several times a day. Getting to Rayong from Bangkok can be accomplished easily via buses or even metered taxi.

Though Samet has a healthy beach bar scene and hosts regular parties on the sand, there are also plenty of calm spaces for those seeking respite. Samet is generally more skewed towards couples and families, with swimming and sun-bathing two of the more popular pastimes on the island. Snorkeling, diving, and fishing trips are also worthwhile pursuits here and are comparatively cheaper than the same activities further south. For something different, Samet also offers fire-spinning classes out of Na Dan Village.
