You won't want to leave

What we say: 4 stars

We let out a big sigh when it came time to leave this small, peaceful and well-presented resort at the far southern point of Samet. Along with numerous kayaks, a small swimming pool, Thai massage salas and a charming open-air gazebo-style restaurant/bar, the grounds brim with orchids, frangipani, hammocks, swings, birdsong and secluded benches where you can catch the sunrise. Nestled on a hillside that enjoys direct sea views, airy octagon shaped cottages are painted in soothing pastel yellow, pink and blue. They come in a few different sizes, but all boast high ceilings, enormous windows, hardwood floors, elegant paintings of lotuses, comfortable beds, soft lanterns, air-con, TVs, fridges and polished modern bathrooms with basin sinks. With double beds on either side of the biggest rooms, which are truly enormous, families will be well-served here. Nimmanoradee is also popular with honeymooners, and if you're here on a weekend, you might find yourself swept up in a Thai wedding ceremony. Though English is not the staff's strong suit, they're exceedingly polite and can arrange snorkelling, fishing trips and transport directly from the resort. Note that when we looked, rates on were almost 50% cheaper than the walk-in rates we were quoted.
