Samed Villa Resort (SHA 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."

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. "

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!"

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."

Silver Sand Hotel (SHA Plus+)
Ao Phai,Koh Samet - View on map
"I stayed at Silver Sand over 20 years ago and it is a different place , as is so much of Koh Samet. Last time, about 10 years ago, I stayed next-door at Samed Villa but that was full this time. At the Agoda price i paid (around 1600 Baht) it is worth is, but no way at the slashed out price listed on Agoda or even the "rack rate" of 2500 Baht the reception at Silver Sand quoted me for an extra night if booking through them and not through Agoda. I had a room at the back, away from the beach, which was great as it was quiet - if staying near the beach it could be rather noisy into the early hours. This beach , Ao Phai, has just these two places to stay on the beach. Beach itself is Ok, but now covered in loungers in the day-time - the next beach down, Ao Pudsa is a bit better in the daytime (there are two places to stay there, Tub Tim, and Pudsa Bungalows), and one beach down from that is the smallest beach/ cove on the island, Ao Nuan, Evenings at Ao Phai are very romantic..."

Ao Prao Resort (SHA Plus+)
Ao Prao,Koh Samet - View on map
"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. "

Avatara Resort
Sai Kaew Beach,Koh Samet - View on map
"Hands down the best hotel in Koh Samet. It is brand new and facilities are equal or better to many hotels in Bangkok. Rooms are spacious and neatly designed. Breakfast buffet is good and the restaurant is very good. Cons:- lots of mosquitoes in the room. Staff was not very flexible. We booked five rooms with 9 adults and two kids. Yet the front desk insisted on charging an additional 650 THB per night. Other than these issues, an excellent place to spend a few days here"

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."

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. "

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.
