More about Samed Cabana Resort

Located on a 120 meter stretch of white sand beach, Samed Cabana Resort is on the island's second largest beach. Spend your days lounging under the sun, sipping cocktails, taking in a game of beach soccer, or try out the water sports on offer. Take your meals at the resort's beachfront restaurant or any of the numerous other dining establishments within walking distance. As night falls, there are several bars within walking distance. Samed Cabana Resort, off the coast of Rayong, makes for an excellent getaway that is still close to Bangkok.

Excellent-value, comfortable beachfront bungalows”

Good beachfront location, beautiful pool, nice breakfast, plenty of sunbeds/chairs

On an island notorious for poor value, Samed Cabana Resort was a real find. Its location is literally right in front of where the Ao Wong Duean ferry drops you off, making it possibly the easiest resort on Ko Samet to reach. The bungalow we had was very comfortable and well-designed with a TV, fridge, and nice, modern looking bathroom. It was clean and the bed was soft (by Thai standards). The pool was a welcome bonus too. Breakfast was a pleasant surprise with plenty of choices, including an egg station, potatoes, waffles and plenty of delicious Thai dishes. The only negative was that wi-fi can only be accessed in the lobby/restaurant area and that has a tendency to make the seating area over-crowded with internet-surfing people, especially in the morning and evening hours. The resort would be well served to expand wifi usage throughout the property.

Right on the beautiful Koh Samet beach”

Great place to stay on Koh Samet. Ao Wongduan is one of the larger beaches and a good place to stay with lots of restaurants, a nice swimmable beach, and close to other beaches to walk to. We got a pool side room and loved it, since it was just a few steps to the beach and also the pool. Quiet at night in the room and just the right amount of daytime activity and evening fun.

Great value, great location, great experience”

It's right on the beach, it's simple and natural, it's quiet and laidback

I enjoyed my stay at the Samed Cabana Resort. I appear to have paid about half the rate during high season (I paid $70 per night for a sea view room, the normal price is apparently $140-150?) and for that it was great value. The rooms are simple and somewhat minimalist, as is the entire resort, but for me that added to a fairly natural, fairly Thai-seeming experience. Eating breakfast, lunch and dinner at a quiet, casual restaurant with great food while on the beach was worth every penny. I'm definitely planning to come back within the next year.

Best location for koh samet.”

I have started at many beaches of koh samet , but I found this beach to be the most beautiful. About the hotel, the cottages were quite big in size and very clean. I like the porch where you can enjoy the partial sea view. These cottages are just behind the beach view cottages but sea is visible from the porch. pros: 1. Breakfast buffet was very nice. 2. The location was beautiful. 3. Kayaks and snorkeling gear is available for minimum fees. 4. Staff was helpful. 5. Drinks were at a normal price, not expensive. 6. Mosquito repellent were provided in the cottage but there were none. cons: 1. Little costly for the a night stay 2. The road to the resort from the main road was little bumpy. I stayed here for 2 nights, will be staying here only, if I come again.

Perfect spot to unwind”

Beachfront, quiet, island vibe

I had a very positive experience at the Samed Cabana Resort. Large windows and glass doors provided a great ocean view. 2 steps from my porch and my toes were in sand. The hotel was clean and the staff very easy to work with. I decided to extend my time for another night and they quoted me the SE rate from Agoda instead of their normal rate. Breakfast buffet was good, your typical fare of western with some Thai. This is a small beach cove that is perfect to disconnect and just relax, there are island tours but I spent my time reading and relaxing and it was perfect for that.

We had a great time at Samed Cabana Resort. We were celebrating my wife's birthday and per my request, the hotel got flowers and placed them on the bed before our arrival. We had a waterfront cabana that was just lovely. The staff was really friendly and helpful. It was nice that breakfast was included in our stay as well. There was plenty to do if we felt like it or we could just relax. The massages right next to the hotel were amazing. We will definitely be back.

Nice, but not perfect. ”

Location, garden, beach

The best years are over. First impression I came - older lady at the reception desk which "welcomes" tourists with the bored face. It seems she is in the bad mood all the time. The biggest minus is - if you get villas no.30 - 34 or 35 (i dont remember exactly) - basically the ones bordering the resort from back side, you will have to listen to the disturbing wood manufactory shop, which is in the close distance. We had some flushing problems in the Villa 33. The breakfast are ok. The stuff told us they prepare more food when they got more than 30 guests in the resort. Strange policy... Taxi mafia on this island is bad - Wongduan Bay is calm and relaxed in evening - going outside means using local taxi or hire a motorcycle. The roads are not good and if you dont have advanced motorcycle skills.. Taxi is EXPENSIVE. To Sai Kaew beach, where all the nightlife is situated, it costs 500 baht there&back. Restaurants on the beach offer variety of seafood&barbecue. Average plate with the seafood (crab, squid, 4 bigger prawns and couple of mussels) would cost you 500 baht. The drinks are expensive. Big beer 120 baht. If you are active - I advice you to walk to the next beach to the south, which is Wai Beach and try hard to rent a kayak for 400/4 hours... They will start at 200/hour - if it is not high season, go and bargain... With kayak you can go more to the south around a cliff, where very beautiful beach is located - the sand and the water more clearer than Wongduan Beach...

Very nice in every respect”

Located on the beach, so the view is very nice.

Of course the location is a good transition away from BKK, but the effects of the big city are sadly apparent when you take an early morning walk on the beach. Trash saturates the beach, but thankfully Samed Cabana Resort cleaned their area before the other resorts started on theirs. The Sea View room was very nice, no complaints, other than the wild mating dogs enjoying the romance of the night. The staff was very nice, but when I asked if they could print my Agoda receipt, the employee I asked snarkily said they could not. That irked me a bit, since other hotels were more than happy to oblige and this employee quickly rejected my request. It just seemed unnecessary and unhelpful. Otherwise, everyone else was great and our stay at the resort was a nice stay.

Brilliant location right at the end of Wonduan beach.”

Our third trip to Samet Cabana Resort. Everytime fantastic. Very friendly and helpful staff. Rooms, small but well appointed. Restaurant has a good menu with good cooks preparing the food. Beach area is kept nice and clean and there are plenty of sun beds. My only criticism would be that in the 6 years we have gone there, not a lot of renovation has taken place. Would benefit from a bit of maintenance. Will surely go again.

Great location and room choices. Shame about the restaurant staff.”

My family has stayed at Samet Cabana a few time now. My opinion of the services there has been consistent each time so I feel I have given it a fair chance and not written about any incidences which may have been a ‘one off’. In summary, the resort is great apart from one major area, the restaurant service. Firstly, when you arrive from the boat there are porters who will carry your bags to the reception area, a nice touch on Samet as not many of the other resorts do this. The reception staff are also friendly and efficient. The resort is located at the end of Vongduern bay where there is plenty of beach area (some of the resorts in the middle of the bay do not have any sand area).There are many sun loungers in the sun and shade and they are all clean and working. There are different types of room to choose from including beach front and pool side and they are all clean and fairly spacious. We are a family of 4 and there’s plenty of room. The pool is great for all ages as it has a shallow pool section for smaller children. So, the only downside, the restaurant staff. From breakfast to dinner, there are no smiles from these guys. They are hard to track down as usually stood near the bar area trying not to make eye contact. However even this I could let go, if the food service wasn’t so bad. Firstly, all food takes a looong time to come. If you’re in a big group, it’s chaos. Secondly, it’s highly likely they will get your order wrong. We ate there twice and the order was wrong twice. The first time we didn’t say anything as it was for adults and we had waited 40 minutes from ordering so we just ate it. The second time a spicy dish was brought out for my young daughter instead of plain fried rice so we had to send it back. No apology from the waiter. He actually asked if she could just eat what had come out! A friend ordered shrimp cakes which smelled bad when they came so she sent them back. Again the waiter did not offer any apology or an alternative so just remov
