What we say: 3.5 stars

Scattered throughout a lush seaside forest, Samet Ville wins the prize for the most different types of rooms in a single resort. No less than 17 room types are available, from concrete duplex standards to smaller, more isolated huts to a converted beached boat and an elegant family villa that sleeps seven. Rooms are mostly clean and simple, and some are decorated with little Buddhist knick-knacks, fountains and plants. With sumptuous wood floors, curtained four-poster bed and broad windows with soft white drapes, the luxurious Ao Wai room is a good honeymooning option. Though reasonably comfortable, standard rooms are less inspiring and we'd shell out the extra 100 baht for a cottage. Samet Ville Resort has received some negative reports, though we found the receptionist very friendly and polite. The giant open-air restaurant is busy throughout the day serving Thai and Western standards, but it tends to play awful music that you can't escape from. They have a large swimming pool and beach bar with a billiards table at 150 baht per hour, as well as kayaks and Thai massage. Rates have stayed the same for a long time, making this decent value for the money. Samet Ville is popular with Thai holidaymakers, and you're best to make a reservation beforehand, particularly on weekends.
