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.
The infinity pool overlooks Ao Kiew − the ideal spot for lazing with a drink from the Pool Bar. As the day draws to a close, head to the Sunset Bar. Built into the rocks above the west-facing beach, there’s 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.
Paradee is an all-villa resort, each with a thatched-roof design and traditional Thai elements. Cascading down the hillside to the beach, they also draw on Balinese and Moroccan influences to complement their jungle setting. You’ll find a huge four-poster bed in each, as well as private outdoor terrace complete with sun loungers. Opt for a pool villa for the benefit of your own private pool with Jacuzzi. Beach Villas allow you to awake each morning to sea views, while the Suite Villa has plenty of additional space.
