Quiet hotel complex, away from the noise & crowds
Posted May 13, 2016 on Wotif
Samed Club is a quiet hotel complex, about 2kms from the main town on the island of Koh Samet. In fact, when we first arrived, we imagined that there was nothing much else on the island. However, after speaking to others, we took a taxi into the town (200baht per ride) and discovered a busy little town, full of eating places, massage and other tourist-related shops. We ate good, cheap Thai food, and had a couple of great massages, over two nights. But, the food at Samed Club was very good, and so we ate the rest of the week "in house". Later in the week we discovered a whole new beach, just beyond the town, that was covered in umbrellas, sun lounges, jet skis and bloated tourists, all jammed in together! Not for us! Other parts of the island, like Ao Prao where the accomodation is much more refined than Samed Club, are lovely - great for watching the sunsets - but we didn't feel the need to spend that much more money to enjoy the peace. We had that at Samed Club.
