Koh Samet

Call 01242 547 895 to speak to a specialist Enquire


Koh Samet can be reached by car and speedboat from Bangkok in less than 3 hours. This is a quintessential tropical Thai island complete with a jungle- clad interior and pure white silicate sand that actually squeaks as you walk over it.

The north of the island is popular with back packers but on the narrow southern tip is one of our favourite beach resorts in Thailand, The Paradee sits proudly with the unique benefit of having access to east and west facing beaches - so sunset and sunrise can both be enjoyed from the privacy of your private balcony.

Guest Testimonial

In Chiang Mai we were met by Aung, who was also lovely and took care of us very well. Once again I am so glad that you recommended the 137 Pillars House, it was perfect and I would have happily stayed there some more days.
