Samed Villa Resort (SHA Extra Plus)
Ao Phai,Koh Samet - View on map
"Good, quiet location on Ao Phai beach in Koh Samet. Would definitely return and recommend this resort to other travellers. The downside of the resort had no signal for certain mobile services and the hotel had wifi issues which was a bit of a let down. Other than that we had a great time."

Sai Kaew Beach Resort (SHA Plus+)
Sai Kaew Beach,Koh Samet - View on map
"The hotel is located in the middle of the town (I mean Koh Samet is small, but you can call this spot middle of the town). Next to the hotel you have the beach, the longest in Koh Samet with great restaurants and entertainment. The breakfast is ok, but needs some attention from the F&B Manager. But the breakfast in the other hotels are far behind this hotels, yes, checked! The room is spotless and there is nothing to complain about it, it is big and nice. The hotel staff is very attentive and don't forget to tip the cleaning lady, you will be suprised about some suprises:). I can recommend a stay in this hotel, I think it is still the best hotel on Koh Samet. Via the motorcycle you can go to all other beaches and it was funny, you can hang around in the other hotels too, just have a drink at their bar. "

Samed Grandview Resort
Sai Kaew Beach,Koh Samet - View on map
"Samed Grand View Resort is situated on SaiKaew beach, the largest of the beaches on Koh Samet. Here the water is clean and very nice for swimming. As the largest beach on Koh Samet there is plenty of choice when it comes to dining and other attractions. The hotel is nice, bungalows and hotel blocks in a nice garden setting, just off the beach. The hotel restaurant is beautiful with a lovely view of the beach."

Samet Ville Resort
Ao Wai,Koh Samet - View on map
"Stayed with my boyfriend. Bed very big, and very comfortable for Thailand! It had a sheet, a blanket and a nice pillow. Big, clean room with a view of the sea through floor to ceiling windows. Aircon worked powerfully and there was a fan option. There was one chair in front of the cottage. Food at the resort was usually very good, but take my advice and don't order a baked potato in the day - only from the evening bbq! Also the cheese isn't real cheese, it is burger style plastic cheese. The service was sometimes painfully slow, which didn't matter too much unless you were eating before going on a trip, but it was a little frustrating. My favourites were seafood green curry and pork bbq stick. The beach was amazing and not too busy. Much, much nicer than the other beaches we saw on the island. It had two snorkelling points that were deserted and peaceful. The resort has home made wooden swings hanging from the trees all over the place, some can fit three people at a time and are a lot of fun. There are hammocks too. There is a nice pool but we didn't go in as people with long hair must wear a swimming cap - and we prefer the sea anyway! The people staying at the resort were mainly families and couples, with a few groups of friends. They were mainly foreign with a few Thai visitors. The roads are extremely bumpy, and the taxis are more like jeeps. Make sure you get in one that has padding on the seat or you will get a sore bum! It costs 450 baht to go one way from the pier on Koh Samet to Ao Wai beach. It costs 400 baht one way to go in a taxi to the popular Diamond Beach from Ao Wai. I recommend taking a private speedboat straight to the resort from Ban Phe pier, because if you take the normal ferry you have to climb over loads of other boats at Koh Samet pier, and sometimes jump some big gaps between boats, though there are boat boys to help you with your bags. Also you don't have to bother with taxis at the other end!"

Samed Cabana Resort (SHA Extra Plus)
Ao Wongduan,Koh Samet - View on map
"I stayed in Koh Samet 30 years ago, too many tourists now in the main beach area, luckily I noticed the Samed Cabana a couple of beaches south on Agoda, much cleaner beach and less congested , big bonus was I could book online as I was inspecting the facilities on the resorts WiFi"

Avatara Resort
Sai Kaew Beach,Koh Samet - View on map
"Hands down the best hotel in Koh Samet. It is brand new and facilities are equal or better to many hotels in Bangkok. Rooms are spacious and neatly designed. Breakfast buffet is good and the restaurant is very good. Cons:- lots of mosquitoes in the room. Staff was not very flexible. We booked five rooms with 9 adults and two kids. Yet the front desk insisted on charging an additional 650 THB per night. Other than these issues, an excellent place to spend a few days here"

Le Vimarn Cottages & Spa (SHA Plus+)
Ao Prao,Koh Samet - View on map
"I have stayed on Koh Samet more times that is sensible and I’ve stayed at all different levels of accommodation. The biggest difference between Le Vimarn and all the others is that this place is a real resort. Most of the little bungalows are just that! A bungalow and a small restaurant. Le Vimarn has it all – a spectacular infinity pool, lovely spa, great sun loungers on the beach and several restaurants to choose from. Obviously because you’re getting a LOT more here than at the other places, you’re going to pay for it! Le Vimarn is CONSIDERABLY more expensive than any other bungalow accommodation on Koh Samet. This hotel is also situated on the “other” side of the island, which can be annoying if you’re wanting to party until late or be around lots of people, as you’ll need to get a taxi at 200B each way. I think the best advice for this place is you need to evaluate what you want from your stay on Koh Samet. If you’re going with friends and want to party – then this is definitely not the place to stay. If you’re going with your partner and want something romantic – then you can’t do better! It is also great for families as it’s not as busy as the other side."

Silver Sand Hotel (SHA Plus+)
Ao Phai,Koh Samet - View on map
"Close to the beach made it easy to walk up and down to the room between hanging out at the beach and relaxing in the room. Food was good at decent rates, only possible drawback was that the staff sometimes were more busy talking to each other rather then looking after the customers, without it being a huge problem but this was the feeling we had at times. In general they were kind and helpful though so it is nothing I would bring up as a huge negative. Just more of an observation. Other than that the room was big, big bed and a balcony with a sitting group. Only thing they could have added was a sitting group inside the room as it was more than enough room for it. They had a small fridge to keep our drinks cool, a neat bathroom with hot water showers and the standard was very good. Television was pretty up to date and the room was clean. All in all a very decent room for the price. It is a very good place for those who wants to be close to the beach, especially couples and families. They had a bar/disco belonging to the hotel that was very active during the night so if you want to have a couple of drinks during night time the option is there. Fire show and modern pop disco music with an external bar next to it so you could also sit outside if you think the music is too loud. My overall opinion of the place is that it is more suitable for those who want a calm and relaxing stay, with the option of going to a close bar to hang out as well. If I would go back to Koh Samet this would absolutely be an option for me."

Tubtim Resort (SHA Plus+)
Ao Phai,Koh Samet - View on map
"We've been to Tubtim a number of times (as well as other places on Koh Samet) - starting in the travelling days and staying in their basic fan room and upgrading to now an aircon garden view. There are comparable rooms/huts across Koh Samet for this price if you put the time and effort in to shop around. It's a basic, clean enough hut with a fan and aircon. Curtains were a bit grubby and the fan starting to go rusty and there wasn't the screening under the sink that was in the photos. The garden setting is fine, nothing fancy. Where it is special in our opinion is the beach - it's generally pretty clean as the staff rake it daily, it's a smallish cove and has an intimate feel to it, especially when it's dark and the lanterns are on. The water was reasonably clean (apart from the first day, something about the tide/direction of wind that made me panic about paradise lost) but plastic is ruining the swimming experience. The food was tasty and they offer a good variety, staff always available. The inclusive breakfast was good, and I enjoyed the variety of Thai breakfast on offer as well as the normal toast, jam, fruit and yoghurt. 20 to 30 minute walk to the main drag is not bad really, plenty of places to rest and have a coconut along the way. We would consider coming back here but would shop around as there is good competition. "

Lalune Beach Resort (SHA Extra Plus)
Ao Wongduan,Koh Samet - View on map
"This was my first time time to Koh Samet and we chose La Lune based on good reviews and price.  The hotel was good and clean, which os surprising considering the sand on everyone's feet.  They are little foot wash pools outside the lobby that help.  The restaurant was okay, but really shined when the evening came and they do a beach side barbeque each night. Delicious.  This hotel tended to be quieter than its neighbors and my wife and I appreciated that.  Plenty of other restaurants and mini-marts are within walking distance.  The beach was good and wide enough when tide was down.  Even when up, there was enough space for sun worshipers. The pool is clean and partially shaded at certain parts of the day.  The staff is friendly and seem to work non-stop.  So at least you can become familiar with them.  I would recommend this hotel to anyone I know wanting to go to Koh Samet. We took the Cherdchai bus from Bangkok-Ekkamai to Ban Phe. Round trip tickets were about B320 each and takes about 3.5 hours each way.  Once you arrive at Ban Phe you can walk across the street to Nuantip pier and buy a ferry ticket to Ao Wongduan.  You have to wait until they have 20 people before they go, but its not bad.  They ferry you to an initial pier, but you stay on the boat and they continue on to Ao Wongduan.  Once in the bay, you transfer to a flat boat that takes you to the beach, with a charge of B10 per person.  If you have trouble walking or getting around, I would recommend finding a speed boat that can take you directly to the beach.  Transferring between the pier - ferry - boat - beach can be tricky.  Once on the beach, you have to pay the National Park entrance fee, B40 for Thais and B200 for everyone else.  So have some cash on hand before leaving the pier.  "

More about Koh Samet

One of the most beautiful Thai islands, Koh Samet serves as a popular getaway for Bangkok residents, owing to its proximity to the country's capital. A full range of accommodation can be found on its beaches, the most popular areas for travelers being Ao Prao and Sai Kaew. A large proportion of Koh Samet is national parkland, and international visitors are required to pay a small fee to enter.

The main point of arrival on Samet is Na Dan Village, where ferries from Ban Phe Pier in Rayong arrive several times a day. Getting to Rayong from Bangkok can be accomplished easily via buses or even metered taxi.

Though Samet has a healthy beach bar scene and hosts regular parties on the sand, there are also plenty of calm spaces for those seeking respite. Samet is generally more skewed towards couples and families, with swimming and sun-bathing two of the more popular pastimes on the island. Snorkeling, diving, and fishing trips are also worthwhile pursuits here and are comparatively cheaper than the same activities further south. For something different, Samet also offers fire-spinning classes out of Na Dan Village.
