Le Vimarn Cottages & Spa
Sitting on the quiet secluded Ao Prao Bay, this charming beachside property offers just 31 cottages set among lush tropical lawns which slope gently down to the beach. Just a short drive from Bangkok, the island of Koh Samet provides convenient access to white-sand beaches without the need for further flights. The cove is shared by just two other small properties and is a welcome alternative to the busier beaches further south.
Le Vimarn has three room categories: Cottage Hillside, Premier Villa Hillside and one Duplex Villa Suite. Decorated in traditional style with bamboo and rattan and tastefully updated with whitewashed walls, cooling floor tiles and air-conditioning, the cottages give you a real sense of your destination and are all light and spacious.
Le Vimarn is set in a quiet cove with a white-sand beach which it shares with just two other small properties. It is a taxi ride to anywhere else on the island but this is easily arranged through the hotel. The beauty of this option is that as there is little else to do or visit on the island, you can devote yourself to some rest and relaxation at the hotel or on the beach, without feeling like you should be doing something else.
