As a 4 star hotel (not really a resort) I think this place is adequate but pricey. Probably will not go back though because of the trash on the beach (and lack of thoughtfulness of staff about it) which ruined the experience.

Pros: majority of staff are very nice, transfer from the Samet resort pier to hotel was super easy (bathroom at the pier was clean!), beach area is secluded and quiet, room was clean, nice (but small) pools, has a soap/shampoo dispenser (better than little plastic bottles)

Cons: food and drinks are too expensive (120 THB for a coconut? Usually 25 THB on the mainland, everything was 3 times normal Thai pricing), was rushed at the pier so we couldn’t stop at 7/11 to buy water and snacks (make sure you bring your own food and drinks so that you don’t get price gouged at hotel), no water pressure in shower, bathroom had some mold, breakfast buffet was simple not great, water bottles given in the room was plastic!! (thought the island was supposed to be a national park but there is trash everywhere and lots of plastic water bottles in the ocean, hotel should provide reusable glass water bottles), we picked up so much trash on the beach while 3 of their staff stood there watching us (they do have someone walk the beach to pick up but it only happens twice a day, and the whole time we were there we picked up handfuls of plastic every time we walked by, yet the hotel staff did nothing)

Dear CVU79

Thank you for sharing your valuable feedback in regards to your recent stay with Le Vimarn Cottages & Spa. Thank you very much for the compliments. However, we’re so sorry to read that the trash on beach would prevent you from returning to us. Ocean trash is one of the world’s biggest pollution problems. It ends up on beautiful beaches and in the stomach of marine life. The trash problem always comes here in monsoon and rainy season. We spend 2 times a day cleaning the beach – clean the beach today and by tomorrow morning it will be littered with these things again, the tide comes in, brings everything with it, then goes out and leaves it all behind. Hopefully this problem will soon be solved or at least died down a bit so that we can continue to save our country and earth. Our food & beverages prices are pretty standard, being on the island, we have to import most stuff. Thank you once again, we sincerely appreciate all valuable comments and suggestions, which helped us to improve the quality of our services. It’s a true pleasure to have you staying here and we’ll be delighted to welcome you back in the near future.

Best Regards
Raviwan P./Secretary to GM

With limited time available and restrictions to long flights when looking options within a few hundred kilometers, the choice fell on Koh Samed. This time unlike on previous occasions I was looking for a more quiet, less busy side of the island and the choice fell on Ao Prao. The waters there are the cleanest on the island! the beach is combed twice a day, guests are invited to join the cleaning and I did so with much pleasure filling bags with plastic of any kind brought ashore by high tides. Such a fulfilling experience for me. The resort offers a wide variety of food choices, Thai of course, international cuisine but if found their Italian restaurant a big hit. I was particularly fond of the combination of gardens and cottages. The architecture with influences of Thai tradition and modernity shows so much taste and respect for sustainability yet it looks absolutely gorgeous. One can really go there and feel completely tucked away from the noise of the world. I am already looking forward to my next visit also because an amazing crew makes sure you are feeling taken care of with understated seamless service.
