WE HAVE JUST BEEN TO THAILAND, part 10, Paradee







KOH SAMET LOVERS PARADISE.
Paradee is a small, intimate and charming villa resort. Perfect for those who just want to relax and enjoy days at the beautiful pool and beach or at the spa.

From Bangkok airport we had a nice 2 hour drive down to Jadet Pier. There we checked in at the Paradee Lounge while waiting for our private speedboat, and were given the opportunity to choose what soap and incense aroma we would like in our bathroom, and whether to get a bottle of white, red or sparkling wine in the villa.

We stayed in a Garden Pool Villa. Like other villas it has dark wooden floors.
There is a small sitting area with a minibar, flat TV & DVD player, safety box & wifi. In the bathrooms you will find bathrobes, toiletries (shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, mosquito spray etc.) and an outdoor shower with open roof.
On the terrace is an outdoor pool, table, and bathtub. A welcome feature - every day you are given at least 2 bottles of water.







Altogether there are 40 luxuriously appointed villas with thatched roofs and views of the tropical gardens or the white sandy beaches. Each has 100 sqm of living space.

FACILITIES & ACTIVITIES
There is only one restaurant but it has a big menu with lots of Thai or International dishes to choose from. They also organize dinneers on the beach.




Paradee has a beautiful sunrise beach on one side, and on the other side of the resort a beautiful rocky cove perfect for enjoying the sunset. Here you find the sunset bar, which was a pleasant place to gather before dinner and watch the beautiful sunset.

The resort has a small gym if you like to work out during your stay. They also have a small Spa with a nice duo room and good therapists. We had tea afterwards in the Spa reception.

In front of the main pool area on a small and beautiful beach there are watersports on offer: scuba diving (PADI), windsurfing, complimentary kayaking and sailing. During the day they serve water and fruit or delicious ice cream. In the afternoon you can also choose if you would like to have the complimentary afternoon tea at the pool area or in your villa.










WHO SHOULD STAY
Paradee has been designed as a resort for couples who want privacy and peace. Truly a lover’s paradise.

AIRPORT
2 hours 30 minutes by car from Bangkok Internatinal Airport to the pier, Rayong; 15 minutes by speed boat to the island.
