Le Vimarn Cottages & Spa 

Sunsets, sand and serenity

These peaceful cottages are dotted around a tropical cove lined by a beautiful sandy beach.

On a hill-backed cove overlooking a quiet beach, this laidback resort is all about relaxation. Soaking up the views at sunset from the pretty curved bay is undoubtedly a highlight. All roads here lead to the beach, with the cottages centred around the refreshing infinity pool. Beach service is available throughout the day so a refreshing drink or two is not just an evening activity. The town, with its local bars and restaurants, is also just a short taxi ride away. If you need to de-stress, have a relaxing massage by the sea or head to the Dhivarin Spa for a rejuvenating treatment for your body and soul. There’s also a range of watersports, as well as plenty of walks to take in the island’s beautiful scenery if you feel like keeping active.

Why we love Le Vimarn Cottages & Spa

  • It’s on the curve of Ao Prao Beach, a strip of white sand washed by crystal-clear waters dotted with coral reefs teeming with fish

  • The accommodation is in standalone village-style cottages decorated in a warm and appealing island style

  • Dining here is a relaxed affair, whether you’re enjoying Thai dishes by the beach or pizza fresh from a wood-fired oven

  • It’s one of a handful of resorts on Koh Samet’s sleepy west coast, so it’s a perfect place to enjoy the stunning sunsets

On the beachfront, you’ll find O restaurant which serves a delicious range of cuisine. The resort is especially proud of their Italian fare, with the wood-fired pizza oven a rare treat on any small Thai island. Buzz has a more intimate beach feel, serving superb local dishes with a small al fresco area for cocktails.

Found on the beachfront, O is a great place to start the day with a delicious breakfast. With the unique touch of a wood-fired pizza oven – a rarity in Thailand – here, you can enjoy delicious Italian food as night falls.

For a refreshing drink, head to Buzz where you can sip a cocktail as you take in the pretty ocean-front view.

Don't miss the sunsets from Buzz, a great time to enjoy a signature cocktail.
