Beautiful grounds with lovely appointed and spacious rooms. We spent a great weekend here enjoying the sun, sand and surf. Only complaint would be the sea was quite warm to swim in!! :).... Were used to the northern Atlantic Ocean! The pool was perfect.... Met people from all over the world. Even enjoyed some after snorkeling libations while watching the...

This was our third holiday on Ao Prao Resort. We live a very busy daily life, and we enjoy our vacations in Thailand. One of our 2 - 3 weeks vacation, we prefer to spend in Ao Prao Bay. If you like a quirt, relaxing holiday with great food - not far away from Bangkok, I'm sure this will be...

Just returned from a very relaxing 3 nights at Ao Prao resort - what a wonderful place to stay on Koh Samet. The staff were warm, friendly, and very helpful - great service. The room (which was right by the sea), was perfect and very spacious. The food is great - and gives as you'd expect, gives you the chance...

I noted very good for this hotel because I liked the quietness of the area. In Ko Samet, most of the place is quite busy. There is a big difference between the east and west side of the island. With family, I really recommend to stay in the west side where this Ao Prao is because the waves are much...

Small, relaxing resort with a very private beach. Feels very remote without being so. The rooms are fine and clean, if a little small for the price. Service is good as always in Thailand, but can be slow. The best part is the beach. Warm, clean, shallow and sheltered with soft white sand. More like a pool, so perfect for...

A good get away from Bangkok. Beautiful small beach. Small resort, quiet and relaxing. I didn't like the food. We had dinner last night at the "O" and very soon after had allergy, I am sure was from the food as I am not allergic. The service is slow but good. The rooms are clean but a bit too small.

Short trip getaway from BKK was very relaxing in Ao Prao Resort. We stay at Premier Seaview room 307 which we really like and room is facing to the sea. The staffs are very attentive and friendly. Massage by the pool was very good and sooo relax. Mr. Payap who works at the restaurant is so nice and very active....

We have stayed at the Ao Prao Resort in the past and were much more impressed those times then we were on our most recent trip. When we pay over $218 a night for a Deluxe Cottage we have certain expectations, and those expectations where not meet. In many ways my room of about $31 per night in Bangkok was...

What a fantastic island and an absolutely beautiful resort. There isn't anything we could complain about as we have visited this island before and knew what we were getting. Five star treatment in all aspects. Could live here forever....Food, people, beaches...what an amazing experience and we wish it had been for longer
