Le Vimarn Cottages & Spa
Ranked #4 of 20 Hotels in Ko Samet
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 March 2013

Stayed here for five night in January. This was our second time on Koh Samet, and during this trip we also stayed at Saikew beach resort. I would say that this is a completely different type of hotel. First, the location is really really off. I you want to have a lot of dining option by walking distance, and some bars and action, you should stay somewhere else. Second, this is a beach which is more or less dominated by the two sister resorts Vimarn and Ao Prao. It's a luxury resort which aims to provide you with everything you needs. There are a three different restaurants, operated by the resort (there is one more resort on the beach, Lima Coco resort, wich their own restaurant).
We loved it!!!!!!!During our five nights here, we only left to have one dinner on another beach - and we spent one day relaxing at another beach. The bungalow was really nice, it was decorated with rich dark wood furnitures, there was a minbar, a DVD and TV and a large king size bed. The bathrom was large and clean. We had a bit of an ant problem in the sink, but I guess you need to be prepared for this when staying in a hut close to the djungle. It didnt bother us at all.

The breakfast was good, perhaps I would have expected a bit more at a luxury resort but it was good. We had dinner both at the italian and the thai restaurant. The italian one could of course not measure up to propoer italian food - but the thai restaurant (Buzz) was excellent . actually one of the best thai resturants during our trip.

We had an amazing time, and although the beach wasn't a big and comfy as other beaches on the island it offered an amazing sunset each night. Also you could do pretty good snorkeling (compared to other place on the island) from the beach. Beware of seaurchins though, they got stranded on the beach on the afternoons, thanks to the tide, so mind your feet.

If you don't want a lot of action (you can always find a rental scooter or take a taxi though), and if you are prepared to pay a bit more for luxury comfort (not that much more though) I would definitively recommend this place! If we go back to Koh Samet for a third time, I think this will be our preferred resort.

We stayed for 2 nights only but it was such an excellent experience since the first time we set foot on the beach in front of the lobby, that we would definitely come back here again someday.
The staffs were attentive and helpful. The room was very nice though our hot tub wouldn't drain.

This hotel also provides boat ride from/to Ban Phe, so you would need to contact the hotel for that.

The breakfast was good, though could be better. Try the boiled rice. It's soooooo good!

The overall service was definitely top-notch.

We were take by speedboat to the resort from ban phe. The location is lovely. The beach was good and the water warm and still. No waves! Stayed in room 601 winch has a nice view. Rooms were really nice. Staff was very helpful. Stayed for three days which is just about perfect for us as there isn't much to do.

This review could really be written in one word: excellent. We stayed in a beautiful cottage with a great, great bathroom. The beach was clean and clear, the grounds and swimming pool were all very well-kept. It was very peaceful and really a place for adults. The breakfast was mixed and could actually have been better, fruit and the coffee were always great, whereas the bread was always a sad and dry affaire. All in all it was a beautiful experience and we would happily go back tomorrow if we could.

Arrived via the hotel's speedboat, about 15 minutes from the mainland. We stayed in a deluxe cottage which was great, nice room well decorated, only issue really was the cheap shampoo and gel they supply. Breakfast offering we thought was a poor selection, beach area small and no chance of sunbeds on the beach unless you want to get up at 6am.

Very expensive hotel room and food for Thailand, bed was comfortable so on that on the baias I would stay again on all other accounts we would not - just an average hotel with staff that do not seem that professoinal and well trained.

We selected Le Virman on Koh Samet after extensive research for our honeymoon and it exceeded our expectations. As soon as we arrived at the pier to take the boat over to the Island the service was exceptional and this continued throughout our 11 night stay. On arrival at the resort, which is breathtaking, the welcome drink and check in experience was simple and relaxed. We stayed in a Spa Villa and we were very happy with our choice, the room has excellent views (902) and I recommend requesting this is you can.The air conditioning, cleanliness and room facilities are also excellent. The rooms are kept immaculate by the staff throughout the stay.
The location itself is simply paradise, we could not have asked for more for our special holiday. Basically we loved every moment at Le Virman! We cannot finish this review without mentioning the very lovely Payab who is the restaurant manager at both Le Virman and their sister resort at the other end of the bay. This perfect genetlemen made our stay even more special and we are so grateful to him, and his wonderful team of staff for such wonderful service and that extra personal touch he provided. You touched our hearts, thank you. Mark and Hannah Lambert

It is rare these days to go to a destination by boat. From first impressions this resort has everything for couples, families and friends and the staff a polite and well trained. Whether you want to laze around the pool, swim in the ocean, snorkel, scuba, sail, visit the turtles, have both fine dining and casual eating locations this resort has all of this. The island Koh Semet has yet to be commercialised like so many other Thai resort locations which means there is virtually no traffic just the sound of the waves breaking on the shore with fun nights. For those of us that want to remain connected to the world whilst on holidays, the free wifi was fast and worked well with our iPad.

Room Tip: Ask for an ocean view. Most have them but just in case.
