    quite and peaceful hotel


    There are only 4 or 5 hotel on the entire beach. Although the Ao Prao Resort is not the nicest it is superbly located, reasonably priced, spotless, with a friendly staff. If you're looking to have a relaxing time on a less crowded beach, I recommend the Ao Prao Resort.

    Unique Quality: The resort has its own boat to transport guests to and from the island.

  • Samets most appealing yet worst food


    Having stayed at Lima Coco for a family reunion we decided to go all out and have an elegant dinner to celebrate the first time ever we had been together with husbands, babies and grandmothers.

    The setting was lovely, the staff attentive, the food - such a disappointment. Two members of our group of five had food poisoning the next day, that along with being served cold meals, clearing the table while people still ate and so on. The smaller things like table clearing would have been ignored if we hadn't had to spend the next day trying to find immodium to settle stomachs, rehydration salts to stop people getting more sick and general lack of enjoyment of what had till then been a fantastic break away.

    We spoke to the management (eventually after a substantial wait) about this two days later and there was little to no interest in doing anything about it (other than blaming other restaurants which w're pretty certain is incorrect). Overall a complete disappointment.

    Be warned - hopefully they may be better in the peak season - but from their lack of interest probably not...

    Relaxing getaway-not too far from Bangkok


    Our deluxe room (see pics) was a smallish wooden chalet up on the hill, with a tiny bit of a seaview (much of it was obscured by the tall trees and surrounding shrubs).

    We had our own little balcony furnished with a low table, two chairs and one wooden clothes hanger. (see below under "Memories are made of This" for more on this clothes hanger.)

    If you have a larger budget, it would be worth your while to spring for a beach-front cottage/bungalow. Our friend who was with us on this trip had managed to book one of these. The bungalow/cottage was not only newer but also larger as compared to our wooden hillside chalets. The bathroom here was about the same size as in the Deluxe Room. The difference was that the balcony for this beachfront cottage/bungalow was right on the beach (see pics, which shows the resorts' own ferry landing here) and you can walk out directly out onto the beach - which is great ! In-room lighting here was also brighter. (The only downside, depending on your point of view and whether you're a night bird or early sleeper, was that some of these beachfront bungalows are located very close to the restaurant. The lounge singers could be heard practically all night, even from inside the bungalow. LOL )

    Overall, if you ask me, yes, we would stay here again, but we'd opt to pay a bit more for the beachfront bungalow. Not so much for the view, but for the comfort.

    Unique Quality: There is no pool at this resort, as compared to it's more upmarket sister resort, Le Vimarn. However, the stretch of beach is shared and accessible to guests of both resorts.

    The beach here was gorgeous (see pics) - not very big, but the water very calm, warm and clear-making it perfect for swimming and also safe for kids. The sand was white, clean and fine. The beachfront on the far side tended to have some rocky bits such as coral and stones, but that was a very minor problem. As a whole, the beach here is lovely and for those who don't like too much sun, there are some beach umbrellas and coconut trees for shade.

    Memories are made of This What I do remember was that the shower space was rather small and hot water supply was not even-brrrrr very cold because we were there during the rany season and after being soaked to the skin, we really needed some hot water! The wooden clothes hanger outside came in especially handy, but because our clothing were soaked right through, my t-shirt, denim skirt and my husband's shorts never did manage to get dry because the night air was simply too humid.

    Nice resort with chalets on the beach.


    This is the tropical paradise you're looking for!!! Nice beautiful houses made of wood in front of the beach (all beachview). Nice bathroom, kingsize bed, lovely decorated and very clean. You have you're own picknicktable at the terrace, with a lovely view at the beach.
    We went there for 3 nights, but wish we could stay there for a month!!!!
    We spend the days with swimming, sunbathing, watching movies (special moviechannels in your room!), dining on the beach, snorkeling, etc.

    Unique Quality: * Great view at the beach
    * Nice beach with free chairs and parasol
    * Great restaurant; cheap compared with European standards
    * Nice wooden chalets with lovely furnishing
    * Great crew, very friendly and helpfull
    * Nice thaise massage at the beach
    * Great Island for relaxing and for love-couples

  • Alongside with a sea breeze...


    I get to stay there for an afternoon tea time. The resort is quiet clean. Staffs are friendly and they really have pretty sunsets. The villas that I saw was cute enough and I was wondering of going back in that place.

    Unique Quality: It's a 3 star hotel. It provides water sports in all kinds of equipments.. And they have a massage services in thai traditional style and if you fancy doing massage along the white sandy beach..hmmm, as you pleased, you can do it.

    Rooms also is a bit of expensive as it's some kinds of classy.

    The website I put has some nice internet rates..

    Directions: It's right next of the Le Vimarn Hotel

Fantastic Resort on Koh Samet

by JoelWillTravel about Coco Lima Resort

Fantastic resort on Ao Prao Beach. Great facilities, great staff, fantastic food and seaview rooms are unbelievable!
Nice and quiet and not too busy or noisy. Quiet hotel. Just a few steps down to the beautiful beach of Ao Prao. Restaurant is great, a little expensive for Thailand but still fantastic value for us coming from the UK, as we would normally be paying 3 times as much for this food back home. Massage available outdoors near the beach, canoes available for hire. Quite a basic hotel but that's the good thing about this hotel, which makes it very quiet.

Samet's best kept secret

by pleasureseeker about Ao Cho Grandview Resort Koh Samet

I have stayed on many of the beaches an in many of the resorts on Ko Samet over the last 10 years. Ao Cho Grandview Resort is a gem. On a very quiet beach, nice and clean bungalows, good service with a smile, good food and most of all quiet beach away from hoardes of tourists and expensive prices that many resorts like Ao Prao, Saikeaw Beach Resort, Le Vimarn charge for a drink never mind a room. Small beach, great staff, and away from it all and only 3 hours from Bangkok

Pretty Villas

by yen_2 about Samet Ville Resort

From the map, you'll notice that the beach is in the southern part of the Island,Ao Wai. Anyhow, the resort serves fantastic fooooood! But needless to say, they should have huts in it as it was a big problem when the rain comes can't imagine eating in the rain!

Our bungalow has a very pretty decorations. With hot & cold shower with soap&toiletress. The bed is not that comfy but it's big. With TV(hopefully it's cable), 2 chairs&table. There's also a clean cabinet for your stuffs&everything.

Rush trip, so ended up too far from the main pier. I was thinking of staying in Sakeaw or Ao Prao. but ended up again in somewhere but love it though..

The beach itself is crystal clear, white sands and torquiose water as always. I' m loving Koh Samet. ;-) You can chose a beachfront bungalows and a bay side bungalows. Beach front will be a good choice!


Pictures will be later.
