Nightly price from £98 per person

Description & Location

The Paradee Resort is an attractive boutique resort, maybe more ‘Indian Ocean’ in style than Thai, with three rows of thatched roofed villas. Delightfully escapist and relaxing.

It is located on the quiet southern tip of the island at Ao Kiew beach. Koh Samet Resorts is one of the closest to Bangkok, with just a short 2.5 hours drive south, followed by a 20-minute speedboat ride. It is totally tropical with over 60% still designated as a national park. For the right client, the journey is part of the experience.

The island has just a few international hotels, of which The Paradee Resort is the standout property.


Paradee Resort has 40 individual villas, all sea facing, although only the beachfront level has clear sea views, due to the garden foliage.

The interiors are simple and romantic with an Arabian Moorish red hue design theme. Most have king size 4 poster beds. All have sitting room area either integrated into the bedroom or separated by an arch.

You have a choice of:

Garden Cottages without a pool, Garden Cottages with pool, and Beach Cottages with pool, set in three rows leading down to the beach. The interiors are essentially similar but, if your budget allows, opt for a Pool Villa.

For that ultimate experience a Beach Pool Villa, which puts you literally two strides from your bedroom or bathroom onto that incredible soft sand beach.

In addition, you have a couple of One Bedroom Suites with separate living room and elevated roof terrace.

The main beach is extensive – over half a mile long – whilst the sea is usually an inviting turquoise blue.

On the opposite side of the island, just 2 minutes walk from reception, you have an additional rocky cove beach bar and snack restaurant. A great place for sunset cocktails.

Facilities and Activities

Attractive spa
Main swimming pool, with a smaller option mainly used  by  the garden cluster cottages
Main restaurant plus on beach dining most evenings
Two bars – one located positioned poolside the other on an elevated wooden deck  to enjoy the sunset
A selection of non-motorised water sports, plus sailing trips to the offshore islands


The Paradee Resort has an easy going gentle charm, probably best appreciated by adults. There are no facilities specifically for children, other than what nature provided.

We think Paradee has particular attraction after a multicentre tour around the region. There perfect place to chill for a few days, without the hassle of another flight before heading home.

We love it. Visited many times and it never fails to impress us. Perfect place to relax under the palm trees. Take a good book… or three. Fantastic soft sand beach, and usually inviting turquoise blue water quality.

Development is coming to Samet, but this is mainly confined to the busier north of the island. Only 20 minutes drive, but a very different atmosphere.

The location of the Paradee Resort is at the extreme south of the island and is pleasantly self-contained. If you wish to have more restaurant options you can visit the lively Sai Kaeo area. About 5 minutes by speedboat, or by island taxi for 20 minutes. Your hotel host will be delighted to assist you.

Currently the island only has one tarmac road which opened to grand acclaim in 2015!
