The location of the hotel not much far from main pier, the hotel was quite and peace, can access the beach by walking only 300 meter.

A delightful stay in the national park ”
A perfect getaway !!! Having stayed many times on Koh Samet we decided to try somewhere different away from the crowds having found a special opening price on Agodad. Pandora is located on the quieter side of the island... A brand new resort cut into the hillside overlooking a beautiful swimming pool...trees and the ocean in the distance about a 4 minute walk away to a lovely white sand beach. The room had its own bed room and separate lounge room and small veranda huge glass doors overlooking a panoramic view. Cooking facilities were available but we did not have time to use.Air Con an added bonus especially for a good nights sleep.The staff were all so pleasant unlike other resorts on Samet we have stayed ... Nothing was a problem, always willing to assist you and with a smile.A scooter is probably recommended if you want to go exploring and there are 3 7/11 shops on the island for almost everything you need with a couple of ATM machines for cash if required.Pandora in my opinion is a perfect get away only interrupted by a little noise of surrounding building which is everywhere if you are familiar with Thailand. The bar next to the pool a good reason not to leave the water as there are seats built in the water.From what I could see there are 3 stages to the Pandora project this being the first and if this is anything to go by it will be PARADISE for all whom visit.Samet is about 3 1/2 hours from BKK my favourite place in Thailand . I can't wait for the next opportunity to return to Koh Samet's tropical paradise and stay at this great new multicultural resort.
Best hotel I've stayed in on Koh Samet”
We spent just under a week at Pandora and we can't speak highly enough about it. Normally I'm not one for writing reviews but this is a fairly new resort and I thought I should do my bit to spread the word about this place. We have been to Samet a few times before and generally stay in places that are priced in a similar bracket and I've got to say this is by far the best standard of room I've ever stayed in at that price. The rooms are incredibly spacious with good AC, that actually stays on when you leave the room unlike most places, and the bathroom had a great shower and was spotless. The living room had another sofa bed although we just used as a sofa, a great flat screen TV, local sattilite TV and a DVD player for those nights you just want to curl up after a long day at the beach. I wouldn't normally review the minibar but it needs a mention, I say minibar it's a full size fridge stocked full of everything you could want and we compared the prices some of the stuff in there was cheaper than the local 7/11. The resort itself has a fantastic pool, you have to have your picture done in the little windows, and a well stocked bar. The bar staff are really friendly and the food served is to a very high standard, they do a great fry up to cue the hangovers and the Thai food is just as good. The closest beach is a few minutes walk away and we almost had the beach to ourselves, it's as picturesque as the main beaches but without the hundreds of speedboats and jet skiers flying past. It was the perfect place to relax for a few days. There is a bit if building work going on but I've got to say it didn't once disturb us, most of the work we saw was being done by hand so the isn't really an excessive noise, this resort is going to be one of the best on the island and we will certainly be visiting again.
Great new hotel with pool and nature.”
Just stayed in the brand new resort 'Pandora' on Samet island. This place has just opened and is doing a great promotional offer right now. My wife and I booked a one-bedroom suite overlooking a great pool. The one bedroom also has a separate living room with kitchenette and sofa bed so for those with children or wanting more space than a usual hotel, this is a great choice. It's a little off the beach - about 250 metres - but actually I think this adds to the place as you get a very natural experience, surrounded by trees and with views of the sea and it's very easy to stroll down to the nearest beach or go to the busier Sai Kaew beach. Not many places on Samet have a pool and this one is really good especially bearing in mind the price we paid. Although there is some building going on nearby, it doesn't intrude on your stay. Also, because it's very new and only about 20 rooms at the moment, it is peaceful and friendly and has a very good vide to it. Great place at a good price and highly recommended".
Nice and fresh resort with a fantyastic pool”
The Pandora resort was a surprise, so nice place and very friendly staff. As allways Koh Samet is the paradise on earth and then when spending the time at the new built Pandora it made it even better. I never stay at this side of the Island before but can highly recomend others to do so as this a quiet area where You can relax but also not far away from the nearest beach(approx 250 meter)I will for sure return to Pandora again
Lovely staff, clean and modern.”
Pandora is a lovely Resort with very friendly staff. We booked for 2 nights originally and then decided to staff for another 5 nights. The owner is English and seems to have got things very right. The food was lovely and a reasonable price. The rooms are very spacious and modern, every room has a pool view. There are two pools both equally nice and inviting. The location is a bit far out from the main busy areas, you can get a taxi which cost 200 baht. To walk would take around 30 minutes. There is a beach within 5 minutes walk however the nicer beach (white sands) is again around 30 minutes walk. There are many places to hire a motor bike on the island including Pandora and the island is very safe to drive around, there are many speed bumps keeping everyone driving pretty slow.
Great hotel, best on island for the price, ”
Great accommodation on Koh samet, though you do need a scooter ( like most Thai places) to explore and get about. The rooms are like condos, kitchen area and sofa large bathroom with very hot water and then a bedroom with very comfy bed. The 2 pools and pool area are great too. Hardly saw any hotels with pools on the island especially for the price. If you need some where to eat a place around 2km called banana bar is actually amazing, one of the best curries we both tasted. Would definitely recommend if we went back to Koh samet. Only negative the island isn't as impressive as some other thai islands we have stayed on, we left after just 2 days.
Friendly, relaxing and clean”
I stayed here for a week and for a 3 star hotel I was very impressed. The room was spacious and clean with a well stocked mini bar. The staff were great, very helpful and friendly and after getting to know them a little I learned the kitchens were at a European level of hygiene which is hard to find especially on one of Thailands smaller islands and this showed in the quality and delicious meals I had there. With 2 swimming pools there's plenty of room to relax and for kids to play. Travelling alone i depend on good WiFi and Internet speeds for my entertainment so I was very happy to get a solid 25mbps here which was more than enough for Netflix or the likes. Koh samet is a tropical island and does suffer from power outages in heavy rain so I did loose power for a short time but that's not limited to this hotel, it was an entire section of the island and happens on most smaller Thai islands. To sum up, for a 3 star hotel on an island at this price you can't go wrong! English traveller
Thanks Steven, glad you enjoyed your time at Pandora Resort
Great place would definetly go back”
This hotel is the newest in Koh Samet, If you are looking for a bit of luxury then is the place to go, the staff are great really friendly and take good care of their guests. Internet is really good in the rooms and the mini bar is the best i have ever seen. One thing about this hotel is that there is construction going on next to the hotel but this never bothered us atol, they dont start making noise until afternoon and by that time you are away to the beach ect. I have been to koh Samet many times and i will be going back to this hotel for sure.
Best Hidden Place with Friendly Price!”
Located in the greenery hill, makes this cozy place very relaxing and peaceful. The staff are very helpful and have great service-minded. Lovely pools, friendly staff and nice room, what do you want more for your chill-out holiday! One of the best places in Ao Noi Na beach, Samed.
excellent hotel, Staff are great, the road leading to the hotel needs to be fixed but apart from that no complaints, the best hotel in Koh Samet and i have been going there for many years, this is a new hotel which is very comfortable. If your not wanting the usual Koh Samet standard of room then stay here. A little bit of Luxury. I cant wait to get back and see the Staff again. English owned hotel. I met the owner who is very approachable and friendly.
Great atmosphere u don't want to leave!!”
Pandora Resort is a little hotel that is placed like your in the middle of an open spot in the jungle. The staff there are only a few people and you can really feel the good wipes between them. They are like famely and it made me feel so much at home!! I was looking for a week for relaxing and if that what you are looking for!! This place will melt your heart!! It didn't matter that it is a little far from the so called mittown!!
Read all the previous reviews ad they are pretty accurate. The hotel isnt perfect and has some issues including the stained towels, far from the beach and some strange designs.We found it difficult to open our door, couldnt clise the bedroom door because of the design and the drain was located on the opposite end of the bathroom from the shower. Overall the pools are great the staff is friendly and it is worth staying here is you can get a good deal. Not sure why but we felt very uncomfortable in the bed and haf difficulty sleepibg through the night. I checked throughly though and no signs of bed bugs. All those people complaining lots of tacis being expensive to get to the beach should seriously stop being lazy, 30 in walk to the beach. For some readon the koh samet songtaos have got everyone on the island convinced they cant do a little walking. Overall liked Pandora, they even let our friends cpme and enjoy the pool with us as long as they bought a drink. If you get a good deal stay here!
lovely and relaxing”
pandora resort is lovely and quiet, the staff have great english skills and the pool is great. not right on the beach but quite close. a little out of the way so would suggest you rent a moped (the hotel has some or u can also get one in the town).
Nice stay ”
Booked a one bedroom suite, room was bigger than the rest. Friendly reception who was able to speak simple English . Location is abit off from the party area , you will definitely need a motorcycle to get around. Not recommended if you do not know how to ride a bike . Communication was not a problem. Internal furniture was a bit rundown , not for fussy traveller. Giving this resort a good thumbs up , cos I have been to other resorts which is worst than this on Koh Samet . Would return to stay again .
Relaxing location, clean facility”
My husband and I immediately rented a motorbike upon arriving in Koh Samet and we highly recommend doing so if staying at Pandora Hotel. I usually make sure we stay at a hotel with breakfast, so I was a bit disappointed that there was no breakfast, but it ended up being fine. I would much rather pay a bit more to stay at Pandora than stay at many of the other Bungalow type hotels that just seems so dirty/buggy. We went during low season so the beaches were empty and we never felt the need to swim in the pool, but it was clean and looked quite nice. Everything was good, would definitely stay at Pandora again.
excellent value for money”
Another great stay at Pandora resort. Staff super friendly as usual. My favorite please is around the big bar, good space, in front of tv and great for eating the Belly buster. Will come again.
I normally dont leave reviews but I highly recommend this place to anyone travelling to koh samed looking for a peaceful and relaxing resort to stay in. the resort is within walking distance to the pier and main beach (about 15-20 min), or you can hire a motorbike from them. the staff were friendly and the place was very clean. the food was very good. the only thing negative I would have to say is that the bed was a bit too firm for my liking.
Spotless resort a bit off”
Splendid place if you are on motorbike, otherwise you are in the hands of the green taxi rip off drivers. Pandora is a clean and modern place with fancy-styled rooms. I loved the big comfy bed on a concrete base. Despite its modern and upmarket style, surprisingly many details are deficient. The beautiful, fancy and big bathroom, for example, was not constructed so as to avoid draining the whole floor and toilet with water when having a shower. And its slide door was a bit out of order. Rooms with naked white walls without decorations. TV signal weak so image quality was low. Despite the shortcomings, the pool areas and the lobby bar are wonderful and quiet places. We were not many guests so it was really possible to relax.
Great Value and top tier staff. Thanks Odom!”
Pandora is a winner. The rooms and grounds are even better than the pictures can show online. Special thank you to Odom at reception who speaks excellent English and showed such an interest in our enjoyment of the hotel! The management has done a very good job at hand picking staff who do their jobs so well. I would recommend this place to everyone!
Thanks for your kind comments about the staff much appreciated John-Paul
Excellent choice on bustering island. ”
I was looking for many resorts on this island for whole day in websites then I found this resort by covecident. Apparently after arrived the resort we were surprised of hotel facilities that two pool access which unbelievable for the price you paid. Then you met the room look over the pool side which realised your hard traveling from Bangkok to here. Walk to the beach or local areas are friendly access. Rental motorbike are really most convenient on this island. Which you able to goes around the island. Most important this hotel really amazing of private, quiet and friendly English speaking staff. Can't wait to come back here again.
