Best location and value on Vong Duen beach!”
We had a lovely stay at C Samet Resort. Even extended our stay. Many of the other guests were "returners" who had been coming to C Samet för 10 years. I understand why. The location is perfect in the most southern part of the small bay; the waves are calmer, and the atmosphere is soothing and calm. Yet you can walk along the beach to any other restaurant within 5 minutes. C Samets own restaurant is in my opinion one of the beachs best. Excellent food in a cosy garden-like beach setup. What made our stay extra memorable was the kindness and warmth of the staff. Every day we chatted, they played with our kids and everything was really nice. Would absolutely recommend and return to The C Samet Resort!
The location at the far end of Vondenguan beach is good: not that much noise from the bars, but still you have several dining options in the evening to choose from, unlike if staying on a more quiet beach. For the day we would walk to a more peaceful and less touristy beach nearby (walking distance to several, best was Ao Wai not more than 30min walk), and in the evening benefit from the restaurants and bars. Vondenguan is not a party beach, but it does get crowded and is very touristy. Smaller beaches nearby are more idyllic for swimming. We liked the resort's cozy summer cottage feel more than the very modern and expensicve resorts in the middle of the beach. Simple and cute white cottages blend nicely with the nature, which on this fully built beach is not the case with most resorts. Not a cheap place, but Koh Samet is really expensive. Like everywhere in Thailand, walls are paper, the only minus there. Bring earlplugs if you choose the cheaper double cottage. Excellent breakfast!
Having stayed in a few places on the island, the C Samet was a very refreshing change. The staff were friendly, the room was lovely, and they serve the best food in the whole area (we tried quite a few) The location is just perfect as it is at the edge of the beach, giving you the best of both worlds. There is a feeling of calm, and I felt at home here - something money can't buy. Talking to one of the proprietors, they have lots of plans, and a passion for how they will move the resort forward. Highly recommended.
Perfect resort at the perfect beach !”
Lovely resort, beautiful Beachfront rooms and a nice private little end of the beach .. Very well priced and really enjoyed our stay here. Staff was warm & friendly. Definitely recommend the C Samet !!
Nice location close to a quiet part of the beach”
The C Samet resort is located nicely close to the beach. The cabin we got was clean and nice. They cleaned the room every day. However the towels did not smell nice every day. The staff is really nice and helpful, even though communication in english can be hard sometimes. Breakfast was good, and we had a great stay. The beach close to the resort was the best spot in the morning.
great for a relaxing getaway”
The C Samet is a lovely spot on the far edge of Vongduen beach. Cottages are lovely and simple. Ours was tucked up in the woods a bit, but the downside was that there was some construction going on out front, making for a ugly view out the window. Also the pool was closed for renovations, so this was dissapointing. But the easy access to the beach, the great breakfast and the lovely service by the staff made the stay lovely. The atmosphere at C Samet really is so relaxing and makes a perfect getaway vacation.
Quiet place for relaxation”
15 minutes away from the Koh Samet Pier (need to take a motor-Taxi/tuktuk to get here) and away from the usual sports where backpackers are. This resort place is very good compared to the others in the area but the beach is just average, well i lived in the Philippines my whole life so I've seen better beaches than what they have here in Koh Samet. Going back to C Resort, the staffs are all friendly and accommodating. There are many rooms/villas in this resort, around 6-8 are beach front you can literally crawl to the sand and many of their rooms are located on top of what i suspect as a mountain before, 2 minutes walk to the beach area (not so bad). They are doing some renovation so it's an eye sore but not a deal breaker. Breakfast was average, your normal eggs, porridge, sausage, cereals and fruit table. This place is best for couples and family but if you are looking to party then this one would be the best option. PS: Don't forget to bring your mosquito repellant
Great beach place”
Great beachlife experience with the sea just outside the frontdoor. Very clean and large bungalows with a huge bathroom! I got sick, with no failt at all of The C Samet, and the staff was extremely helpful - thank you so much.
Perfect location on the best side of the beach”
I had three wonderful days here with my two kids. The beach is excellent and the "beachfront bungalow" we had was perfect for us. Clean and great location with clear sight of the ocean and less than 10 meters from the beach. The resort is on the south side and has an almost private stretch of the beach that is really relaxed and nice to be at. Otherwise the beach is rather explored and filled with restaurants and hotels.
Dear Guest, Thank you for your reviews for our resort. We are pleased to hear that you have a wonderful stay at the resort. The breach in front of our resort is one of the best beaches in Samet island and we are really proud of. We look forward to have a chance to welcome you to our resort again soon.
great location but old rooms”
The resort is on au vong duen beach where the waters are calmer then other beaches. We got the beach front cabin and the room is dated with old dark wood. The mattress is hard and not like other resort beds. The bathroom had a bad stench. The main widow was not closing right and so sounds were trickling in from the loud music at the restaurant. After 10pm i informed them that the music was disturbing (they did turn it down) as it was loud trance music and reading other reviews, people have complained so i assume they keep playing the same cd. If they played some nice buddha bar or lounge music at a low volume would be great. I go to the beach to relax and listen to the sound of the waves and nature and to have thumping hard music is quite annoying. staff were very nice, requested for extra blanket and got it. The food in the restaurant is delicious. They are currently renovating or adding new rooms so it does get noisy after 9am. All in all, i enjoyed my stay but resorts should keep their property in top shape and should keep inspecting and fixing issues before they become dated.
To be frank, the scene at Semet is dissappointing comparing to many islands we have been to. The hostel is more than 5 km from the port. Never try to walk there. It took us nearly 2 hours walking there. And we recommend to locate the resort next to C semet on google map and walk a approximately 50m beach to C semet, or the rold directed by google map will surprise you. The resort has fantastic breakfast, with a beautiful swimming pool. The outlooking of the resort is not quite beautiful. Very few restaurants around the resort, very expansive as well. All in all, the resort desearves its price.
Dear Guest, Thank you for your review. There are 2 pier on Samet island - Na Dan Pier and Vongduen Pier. Our resort is on beachfront of Vongduen Beach, which is 5-minute walking distance from Vongduen Pier. We are glad to hear that you like our breakfast and swimming pool. We look forward to welcoming you again when you visit Samet island in the future.
Picking the best deal on offer does tend to get you a room at the back, but that was only a problem when the electricity went off one evening. Of the three places I've stayed in Wong Duan, this was probably the nicest room. The only criticism I have is that the buffet breakfast was only available when there were a lot of people staying, the other mornings I had to order from a limited breakfast menu. In retrospect, I'm sure that if I had asked for something else (i.e. cereal), they would have got it for me. When I went to reception to extend my stay, they rounded down their walk-in price to what Agoda was showing. I may well come back here again.
You can hear the waves crashing from yur bed”
The resort is absolutely beautiful. The staff are super friendly and helpful and the rooms are very clean. But what I felt the best of this resort is that it's on the quieter side of the island, letting you stay away from the crowd and relax. I stayed up all night with friends in my room, just listening to the waves crashing. Just beautiful! Will definitely recommend this place!
Dear Naznoor It was our pleasure to welcome and service you. We are delighted to learn that you really happy with service and resort ambiance. We look forward to welcoming you back here again. Regards, The C Samet Beach Resort
There are better resorts on Koh Samet for the money. ”
First, the place is under construction which made the views unpleasant. This wasn't a total surprise as the earlier reviews noted the construction but what they failed to mention was the terrible smell emanating from the construction. Second, the rooms were very unclean and not the rooms depicted on the website. Instead of the colorful rooms shown on the site we were placed in rooms with cold, grey concrete walls which felt more like an asylum than a resort. The outside of the rooms were filthy and swarmed with bugs/mosquitoes which could easily be fixed with some citronella or tiki torches. Also, the pot of water outside the rooms meant to clean your feet obviously hadn't been changed in quite some time. Finally, the only thing good about the place was the friendliness of the staff. Despite the rooms, bad food, and bad beach location the staff was very friendly. Overall, C Samet is not recommended as you can find places with better location and rooms for the same amount.
Friendly staff , great location”
Great place to get away from the hustle & bustle of Bangkok. Having visited the island many times, this is my favorite place, mainly due to the serene location of their rooms and bungalows - set right next to the beach. Not the cheapest option on the island but the sea-view, good food and friendly staff always make it a memorable stay.
Dear Guest, Thank you for your review for recent stay at The C Samet Beach Resort. It's our pleasure to hear that you are happy with the services from our staff and overall environment at the resort. We look forward to welcoming you again soon.
Resort was a construction site. Noise was intolerable.”
When we arrived, the resort was under reconstruction. The noise was so bad that the manager had to close the door of the reception so that we could hear each other. While waiting, I sat with my fingers in my ears. The manager said that the construction would only be in the mornings and afternoons; the evenings would be quiet. Very kindly, he offered to shift us to another resort, Ao sangthian. The resort was quieter, until the evening, when thumping karaoke started and continued until 11pm or so. Summary: don't bother with Koh Samet. It is now a Thai group tour and student destination.
Nice calm resort at the end of the beach”
Excellent Place for families and couples with small or large children. Good food and breakfast right at the beach. Nice and clean water. Very relaxing resort. Good oppurtunities to buy fresh fruit at the Beach. Fabulous view.
Dear Guest, Thank you for your reviews for recent stay at The C Samet Beach Resort. We are glad that you had a good time with family. We look forward to welcoming you and your family again soon.

Nice beach ”
This resort is located at the quietest and cleanest end of the beach. The breakfast is basic but good. The Resort seems to be going through a renovation of sorts, it may be better once this is completed. Everything was good except visually this is not a well kept resort, the landscaping is almost non existent, the few plants they do have are half dead. Staff can be seen sitting around on their phones at any time of the day, shame they are not managed and made to do something like sweep the paths or do some landscaping/watering like you see at the other resorts on the island. Stay here if you want a quiet get away but don’t really care what the immediate surroundings look like.
Friendly staff, good food but mosquitoes”
The hotel staff are all friendly and helpful. Food is very good at reasonable price (not cheap but being in an island it is acceptable). Renovation is in progress but we were given the rooms away from the work so it does not bother us at all. Our rooms are on the hill which is quite far to walk. It would be nice to get the rooms nearer to the beach. The only negative thing is there are lots of mosquitoes which may not be the fault of the hotel as it is near the jungle behind. Anyway, the hotel provides guests with mosquitoes repellant in the rooms or upon request.
