Saikaew Beach Resort

With its modernist villas, chic blue-and-white decor and tropical accents, the long-running Haad Sai Kaew Beach Resort sets the luxury bar on Samet’s most popular beach.

Photo of Saikaew Beach Resort It’s an excellent choice if you’re up for a splurge.

The cheapest deluxe rooms are about a two-minute walk from the beach and, while perfectly comfortable and with all the mod cons you'd expect, offer questionable value -- shell out a little more dough and the quality rises considerably. Inviting sky blue villas have plush wood floors, colourful cushioned perches and private swings on large terraces. “Seaside premier” rooms are accessed through a massive wood gateway and come with aqua light peeking through wood strips, tie-dyed pillows and sleek polished concrete bathrooms. Step all the way up to the poolside villas and you'll get a gorgeous pod of style and comfort. These open directly onto the resort's perfectly formed infinity pool, which is raised one floor off the sand so that you can gaze down at the beach while the “commoners” can’t see you.

The resort has a full-scale bar with its own light show, plus a cafe, seaside restaurant, fitness room and spa. Whereas nearby Grand View Resort pumps loud music all day long, the vibe is quieter and more sophisticated at Sai Kaew Beach Resort. This was one of the original properties owned by the Samed Resorts group, which also runs the top-end Paradee Resort and similarly upscale Le Vimarn and Ao Prao Resort, among others. Rates at all of these include breakfast and transfer to/from the mainland via a private pier.
