    Enjoy the beach without many tourists ”

    The hotel located at the west side coast of Samet, which is not very convenient but you can enjoy your quiet & relaxing time at their private beach. You still need to go outside the area for lunch and dinner, for cheaper & local restaurants. Otherwise, there are 3-4 restaurants inside the area which owned by other hotels. Not sure about the price. For transportation, highly recommend that rent the motorcycle that you can go anywhere around the island. There is also tuk tuk to some attractions, about 30baht per person. For the hotel itself, everything is great, especially the room and multiple options for breakfast. It depends on your preference whether the location is good or not.

    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.

    Great get away but a few things could be better!”

    I he resort is in a beautiful bay, away from all of the other resorts and nightlife so perfect if you are looking for something a bit quieter. It is still easy to get to the other side of the island if you get fed up of the peace and quiet! Food and drinks are expensive if you only eat at the resort. The food was nice enough. The cocktails, however, were disappointing. They really taste as if there is no alcohol in them at all. The frozen margarita just tasted of water!!! Thus would not stop us returning but we would choose our drinks more wisely. Facilities are great and the sunsets magical.

    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).

    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.

    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.

    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...
