Paradee Resort 

A beachside all-villa retreat

This boutique, white-sand resort on unspoilt Koh Samet is designed with couples in mind.

Set on the unspoilt island of Koh Samet on the soft white sands of Ao Kiew Beach and surrounded by tropical jungle, Paradee is romantic and luxurious. A stay at this beautiful resort is effortlessly complemented by its charming and attentive staff. Every detail here has been considered, from the personal greeting at the dock to the selection of scented soap for your room. Stretching across the island, the resort has two beaches for both blissful sunrises and enchanting sunsets. To the east, Ao Kiew is a private sandy beach perfect for swimming, while to the west, you’ll find a rocky beach with quiet shores that welcome marine life, making it a snorkeller’s dream. For shops and restaurants, the main town is a 30-minute taxi ride away.

Why we love Paradee Resort

  • This tranquil boutique resort, in a marine national park, has just 40 villas tucked away in tropical gardens sloping down to the sea

  • Couples will love the four-poster beds in the rooms, the double kayaks for sea-bound adventures and sunset cocktails in the bar

  • Wonderful private dining options include breakfast in bed or a magical dinner on the beach in a star-and-candlelit sala

  • For the ultimate in privacy, you can upgrade to Villa 101 or 102, which are tucked away at the quietest end of the beach

The Sunset Bar is built into the rocks above the west-facing beach, with an elevated wooden terrace where you can have delicious signature cocktails and panoramic views. Serving Asian-fusion food, The Restaurant is reminiscent of a traditional Thai sala, looking out across the eastern beach and the pool. If you prefer to dine in private, you can choose from options including breakfast in bed or a magical dinner on the beach beneath a candlelit sala and a canopy of stars.

The Restaurant
Sitting beside the hotel's infinity pool The Restaurant is a great spot for delicious all-day dining and varieties of international and Thai cuisine.

Sunset Bar
For a delicious sundowner with a view, the Sunset Bar is the place to be.

For something more intimate, opt for a private candlelit dinner on the beach.
