i will be travelling to thailand at christmas for a short break (24th dec - 2nd jan) and was hoping to spend a few days chilling out on ko samet as im still yet to visit in my last 4 trips to LOS.

will probably want just 3-4 days there between (28th dec - 31st dec) now i know this is going to be peak season but i was hoping somebody could recommend me a nice quiet beach/resort/hotel to stay?...ive read up quite a bit on ko samet (including tezza's blog) and i realise that its a very small island so chances of me finding anywhere with a beach to myself are pretty much zero!

all i would like is somewhere as quiet as possible with nice beach to relax on and nice water to swim in,preferably beach hut/bungalow type accommodation with aircon,any where between 1000bt - 2000bt price range is ok.

also would i need to book in advance or would i be able to turn up on the island and find somewhere?

any help much appreciated,thanks :)

ceedee,
First and foremost, you will most definately have to have your accom. booked for that time of the year. I also have yet to visit KS after 4 visits to LOS. I have researched the place and provide the following for your info.:
Accom: Ao Thian:

  • Vongduern Resort,dbl,a/c,tv-1100B

Boat: rate for round trip 140 Baht/person dep.Baan Phe pier 0930,1330,1700
or boat to Ao Vongduen then short walk south to:

  • Ban Keang Talea(ph 0861581619;0870681401-fan bungalow,1000B?
  • Candle Light Resort-Ph 089 9145585/081 7629387/0871496139-fan b'low 1000B?
  • Sang Thian Beach Resort-Ph 038 644 255-fan b'low,1000B+

Nearby: trail to Sunset Point other side of island (15min walk)
Ao Thapthim:Samed Villas(see website)
Ao Wai:Samet Ville Resort(see website)
I believe the above accom. are located at quieter places to Ao Tubtim and Ao Phai beaches.

  • Tubtim Resort at Ao Tubtim is on my list but ensure you book one of the new units.

The asterisk means that I have read many reviews with positive comments. The prices shown are ballpark for low season over the last 2 years. As you know, accomm. prices on KS skyrocket for December.

cheers,ive been reccommended the ao tubtim resort but i rang up to confirm a booking and was told that they only take bookings no more than 3 days in adavance.?? which says to me thay will be fully bookes :/

tbf au pudsa/au tubtim seems to be the beach;/resort that most mots my criteria.

any other suggestions?

My only other suggestion around the main area is: Ao Phai:Jep's Bungalow-Ph 038 64411112-fan,hot water(check rms)-800B
