Just returned home to dreary, cold England yesterday after 3 wonderful nights at the resort last week. Came with my Thai wife to celebrate our honeymoon and stayed in room 200 which was one of the beach front cottages. Room was fantastic with easy access to the beach. Service

Prior to going there I did read reviews and found them to be true, in particular the resort concerned is located within a separate island area that makes it quite and clean. We went there with kids and they indeed enjoyed their time there. We went to the village by walk and it

This is the third time at the AoPrao Resort. Over the last two years I did see many improved offerings, e.g. coffee, fruits, beach attention and service and staff professionalism. The biggest change was the abandon of overcrowded boats situation, which makes the beach to a

Hi the free of charge shuttle between AoPrao and the mainland Pier of the resort is here, Shuttle Boat Schedule From Ao Prao Pier :11AM / 1.30PM / 4PM From Ao Prao (Koh Samet) :10AM/ 12.30PM / 3PM but you can pay yourself and use other boats during 8am ad 6pm or the Samed Boat service, I think it was 2000THB on way.

Because you would be leaving outside of the complimentary motor boat transfer times you would have to pay for a private motor boat to take you from Ao Prao Resort to Rayong Beach (Ao Prao Pier). The manager at Ao Prao Resort could organise this for you or alternatively Samed Resorts could probably organise prior to your stay. I was quoted for a private motor boat transfer 2600-3000baht for two adults but not through Samed Resorts. A chauffeured standard car for 2 adults from Rayong Beach to Bangkok International would be 2800baht or executive car 3100 through orientalescape website

you can walk but i dont remember it being connected very well.. i took a public transport like an aut / tuk tuk and got off at the public beach and walked around there.. Ao prao is secluded and is very dark and quiet at night so would suggest coming back a little early in the evening if you plan to walk back.

My experience as someone who walked into the reception and asked at the front desk, even though they have a PADI sign on front desk, was they were not interested and sent me to another hotel employee on the beach who said not this time of the year. Then another employee said they had lost their dive staff. Basically, the hotel is clearly not interested in diving otherwise the front desk would have been on top of it.
