Sai Kaew Beach Resort – Koh Samet ⭐⭐⭐
Huge, central, excellent facilities, and good for families.This vast resort is divided into 3 “zones”. Scattered around vast lawns, the cabins in the “Hide Zone” are painted in bright colours, 10m-15m apart, and have verandas that drip with vines.In the motel-style blocks, just a few yards from a second pool, the rooms in the ‘Hub Zone’ have a huge bathroom, an extended bedroom with a comfortable sofa and a large balcony/patio. All are spacious enough for an extra single bed without feeling cramped, and many rooms have connecting doors. Special family rooms are also available.The infinity edge pool in the Hip Zone overlooks the beach and another has a pool bar.Sai Kaew beach has golden sands and noisy jet skis, while the private beach is quiet but rocky, and any patch of sand is likely to disappear at high tide.and there is a small playground on a shady lawn.the unsigned entrance is located along a secondary road, about 200m from the main road and another 500m from the ferry terminal.
