Paradee Resort + Spa

There aren't many spots on Samet where you can enjoy five star luxury, but Paradee Resort offers just that.

Photo of Paradee Resort + Spa

Far and away the most expensive and high-end option on the island, it offers 40 stunning villas with either a beach or garden view, each with its own private sun deck and several with Jacuzzis and private splash pools. There's also an infinity pool for all. The extravagant villas are more “contemporary tropical” than traditional Thai, with thatched roofs, bamboo furnishings and draped mosquito nets. If you've really got some money to flash, the higher priced rooms come with a private butler. The owner runs several high end resorts across the island, so expect things to be professionally and smoothly run. The resort is located at Ko Samet's thinnest point, and actually stretches across to both sides, so you can watch the sunrise in the mornings then wander over to the west for the sunset. Given the opulence of the rooms and the quality of the beach here, if money were no object, anyone might wish to stay here at least once in their lifetime. Rates are extremely high, but deals can be found if you shop around online. On the down side, sadly Paradee aggressively blocks public access to a beach they don't own.
