I took my son to Ao Prao during Songkran. 2 hours drive from Bangkok + 15 min speed boat ride. The arrival is great, arriving by boat and being dropped off on the beach. Staff were friendly, beach was clean, hotel quality 3 - 4 star. Rooms were basic but nice. A little expensive, but overall I think worth it....

This hotel is perfect for a getaway with your partner. It is quiet and very private, if that is what you want. The location is beautiful right at the beachfront. The island of koh samet is nothing special and it is very hard to get around on the dirt roads, so we only spend 1 day touring the island. Rooms...

The hotel was nice in comparison to the appearance of the other hotels. However, for the price that was paid the rooms were too small and everything was too expensive. The internet was expensive and the hotel did not have any wireless access. You can get a great hotel for about 1/2 - 1/3 of the price in Chiang Mai...

Stayed for 4 nights, 1-5 March. Ao Prao means Coconut Beach in Thai and sums up the resort well. Ao Prao has its own check- in lounge on the hight street in Ban Phe. Air conditioned, with toilets, newspapers, water, coffee etc. A refuge from the heat of the town. The speed boat took less than 10 minutes. Get the...

We booked 4 days at this hotel as a luxurious (expensive) retreat after three weeks of travelling in Thailand, Cambodia and Laos. We left after three days and rebooked our favourite hotel in Bangkok (at half the price) for our last night before heading back to the UK. Food was good (but pricey) and who could possibly fault the beach...

We spent 4 nights at the Ao Prao resort as part of a 2 week break across Thailand in early 2010. Koh Samet (Samed) is a lovely island with a good mix of restaurants and bars for all ages, couples and families and we enjoyed our time there. The Ao Prao however is sadly not even close to being worth...

We spent a lot of time researching where we wanted to go last Summer, knowing that we were going to stay with friends for the second week in Bangkok, and that we wanted to go away somewhere for our first week that was a total escape from daily life.
