“nice place with great rooms”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2013

Very nice resort and spa, food was OK , but everything else was great, room had huge bath tub, great shower , good service and lots of room , units are up on hillside and you feel alone as view and others are away from each other. Nice beach and other places to eat close, clean water and white sand.

We had to cancel and went back to the mainland, Ko Samet has been ruined at least for a few years, the response was slow and now the beaches are tarred, we tried the other part of the Island not as much oil, but smelled like petro and the beaches were darkened.

My husband and I have spent 4 days of our honeymoon at this romantic resort. The private speed boat to the hotel was magical! Le Vimarn is set on the western side of the island in a private beach area shared by two other hotels. It's a mini paradise. It takes about 20mins to get to the east side of the island where the shops and night life are found, along a bumpy road- accessible by taxi or scooter. Tip: Hire a scooter for a few days-cheap, efficient and fun!

The room was definitely deluxe with a four poster bed, sofa area and beautiful terrace with sea view. Housekeeping standards were excellent- whenever we came back our room had either been cleaned or 'turned down'. Worth mentioning- We paid the extra for a spa villa, but I wouldn't say it was much of a spa! Just a bath tub in the garden that's a bit grubby. Garden villas looked just as nice. The cottages are spacious, have free wifi and AC. Restaurants and spa at resort are on the pricey side but the food was excellent! They also offer happy hour at Buzz restaurant -about £3 for a cocktail!


Overall le vimarn is an excellent choice if you want a luxurious hotel in a romantic, private setting. Its location is the most peaceful and stunning on the island by far and it's easy enough to get to the other areas to escape the tranquility! However, for boat trips, massages and other entertainment I would go to the east side as prices are much more reasonable. 200 baht massage which was amazing in town compared to 2000 baht at hotel spa!

Great service, beautiful setting and very romantic for accommodation- just shop around for day activities as better deals can be found!

地點遠離鬧區,飯店沒有免費提供接送服務(除了來跟離開的時候),是安靜的海邊,來的時候記得跟他們聯絡問如何坐他們的快艇到這裡,不然坐船要一個小時,還要花兩百坐計程車,房間海邊整體都不錯,服務人員英文不好,最後離開的時候,櫃台讓我們等了一個多小時,因為他們叫不到車子。We were happy about this trip in the first place, but in the end they made.us waiting 1 hr for the taxi which take us to the port in the lobby, they should made reservation in advance.This is awful. Except for it, anything is fine.

This was the first time my husband and I had visited Thailand and after a busy five days in Bangkok this was exactly what we needed. From being taken to the resort by speedboat and stepping off this into the shallow warm sea, walking across the sand to our cottage was an experience in itself. The cottages are built to a high spec and the grounds are beautiful. The staff are so helpful and friendly they also contributed hugely to making this a holiday to remember. The only drawback is I will now compare any where I go in the future to this wonderful resort.

Room Tip: All cottages are of the same spec but if you want to spend the extra money there are spa cottages al...

Went for a weekend out of Bankok (29-06-2013). Absolutely loved this place. Very relaxing, very clean. Our cottage suite had an indoor shower and an outdoor covered shower, private balcony with beach view. It was a beautiful room with a luxury tropical theme. The staff are wonderful. They try very hard to make everything perfect. The staff always have a smile and pleasant greeting, which was very appreciated. The spa was also a nice treat. Everything is comparable to western prices (drinks, food, etc.) 250-350 Baht for mixed drinks. The best part was it was only a 2 and a half hour drive by mini-van taxi from Bankok. Downsides: the other side of the island is a state park, but where the fees go I have no idea. The road was one pothole after another with trash and shanties the whole way to the little port town. So make sure you go to the Le Vimarn speedboat launch just a few blocks away from the larger dock. We made the mistake of taking the island ferry; crowded boat with fish and other island stock. Smelly, rough ride. The Le Vimarn speed boat is complimentary... Take the speedboat not the ferry! Last negative point was that the Le Vimarn Resort side of the island was fairly windy the three days we were there. Could be just the season? Anyway, loved, loved, loved this place. We would definitely go back.

It's the best of the hotels in the bay and due to it's size the staff has plenty of time to treat you in a very personal way. Depending on the tide at your arrival a landing stage is pushed into the water by a tractor to allow you to reach the land with dry feet. At the receiption you get a welcome drink while your luggage is unloaded. The beach is clean, the sun beds and covers in good condition which is also valid for the garden, the pool area and and the villas. You reach the small Thai style Villas via wooden pedestrian bridges running through the garden. The houses are well positioned on the hill and far away from each other so that you can relax and enjoy the freedom of Ko Samet. The rooms are well equiped with every comfort, a large good quality canopy bed, a clean bath and a small terrace.
The Italien restaurant at the lobby area is also serving breakfast. In the Thai restaurant few meters down the beach you have the choice to enjoy the excellent food indoor with aircon or outside sorrounded by torches and an open fire place. A very romantic experience which I can really recommend. Another must do is to have a cocktail at the bar during sunset.
The perfect hideaway for couples, but nothing for party people!
