Today I like to take you to relax in Koh Samed (This is my first time). I feel so lucky that have a chance to stay in a Luxury Resort on Koh Samed as Paradee Resort which I have got this opportunity from KTC Thailand Boutique Awards 2014 – 2015 for experiencing leisure here.
Paradee Resort is a 5 star resort in Samed Resort Chain. The distinctive point, it is the only one resort located on Kiw Bay, the famous bay of beautiful beach and sea. So Paradee Resort is very private. Before step in to the resort can you question yourself >>>
How many places that can make you impress since the first step?
How many places that can make you feel peaceful at all time of stay?
How many places that you can enjoy natural atmosphere all the time?
How many places that you can walk bare feet on the sand and in the sea with no worry?
And How many places that you can experience an over standard of leisure on the beautiful island which only take 15 minutes from pier?
Thank you everyone for visiting our page, you can follow and talk to us at https://www.facebook.com/PrincessOfNapier. Everyone is welcome.
Before arrive to the resort, we stop by "Pa Jiw restaurant" for lunch.
Starting with Kanom Jeen Nam Ya (Rice noodle with fish curry)
Fried King mackerel in fish sauce with rice...Yummy Yummy
Fried Sator (Parkia) with shrimp paste and prawn, (less Sator)
Curry steamed King Mackerel (Recommended)
Direction to Pa Jiw restaurant is easy, from Ban Pa Intersection turn right to Ban Pa Market. The restaurant will be on you left around 50 meters before the market.
I have Coconut milk ice-cream with salted egg and dried shredded pork which I think it taste odd but my friend said I should not miss it.
Then we take Paradee Speedboat from Jadet Pier departure around 2.00pm to the resort. Speedboat from Paradee resort will pick up people from the pier twice a day at 2.00pm and 5.00pm only.
Guests of Paradee resort will check-in at Jadet Pier, and waiting at the lounge.
During check-in process, we have choose wine lists; White wine, Red wine and Sparkling wine
Moreover, we also have to choose smell of soaps and aroma oil in the room.
Only 20 minutes on speedboat we are now arriving at Paradee Resort.
At the time of arrival, you will become a special person, all staffs are lining up for welcoming you to the resort. They provide a temporally pier to dock on aside of speedboat so guests do not have to walk in the water.
Stop by the swimming pool like I am under spelled, it is so beautiful together with white beach and clear seawater.
Paradee Resort is located on the most beautiful beach and takes the least time to come here by boat.

Big bathroom, there are both indoor and outdoor.
And another different point of these two room is bathtub of Beachfront Pool Villa can see sea view and open air but Garden Pool Villa does not have the bathtub outside.

The most luxury room is Suite Villa located at the end of Kiw Bay.
Suite Villa is a private land with good division and wide space.
Private pool out front
It is not strange that Suite villa 100 is the most luxury room of the resort because of wide space, well design and located in the best location where is the end of the curve of Kiw Bay.
Bed in this room is facing beachfront.
Big bathroom with sea view which is adding some pleasure to lay down in the bathtub.
The living room, as you can see that they build up a room but try to keep a tree. They try to keep the nature as much as they can.
Surrounding by greenery scene
Actually, I think we can just stay in the resort and enjoy a good view but because of the outside atmosphere of Paradee Resort is also very attractive so we should go out and have some walks.
The pool by the beach is another interesting point of the resort.
Sunbath bed is under a big white umbrella and facing the sea. Feeling no comment just enjoy!!!
I fall in love with Paradee Resort from this corner
The resort also provides other activities such as Kayaking, Scuba Diving and Sailing.

My friend came here before told me that the resort provide the best service ever. Until todayI know that I am going to say the same thing. Moreover, we have to thank you the GM that come down to take care of all guests and everything by himself all the time.
Everytime that the guests are leaving the resort, all staffs are lining up to say goodbye as when we arrive.
My first time in Samed is so great like I am under the spelled of Paradee. Even when I get back I still miss there. Staying at Paradee Resort, I try to find some weaknesses of the resort but it is really hard to find. There is only thing that might be a weakness is the location the resort. It is quite hard to travel to other island but it just like you are staying on a private island which is good for me. Other than that is about insect which there is a warning in every room already. So over all is great.
From Paradee to Suphattraland ...
This is another creative sight for you to enjoy. The ticket is 300 baht and you can enjoy fruit buffet at the entrance. For a tour in orchard, there is a car provided for discover Suphattraland.
Let's get starting
Enjoy fresh Rambutan from Rambutan trees, which opens specially in April to June
Next point is Mix fruits (Sum Kraton) such as Duriens, Dragon fruits, pineapples, etc. All fruits are seasonal fruits. Moreover, there are staffs to service you. All visitors can stay in the orchard as long as they wish, there is no time limit.
During April – June is the main season of fruits because it is a harvesting period.
Durian is the highlight If you like it !!!

- From Rayong City, take road 3138 heading to Ban Ki District for 9 KM> then take the right division to Ban Beung and go straight to Ban Kai District. Passing the hospital and turn left for about 8 KM.
Supphattraland will be on your right
Lastly, review of Laem Charoen Seafood
The famous menu that everyone who comes order is Sea Brass in fish sauce
Fried dried squid is very delicious especially when it is hot.
Fried clams in chili paste
Another recommended menu is steamed horse crab together with rice and seafood sauce….Hmm Yummy.
And the last menu is grilled squid.
In the end we cannot finish all food but we really like it here because all ingredients are very fresh.
For the price, I think it is not that expensive, it is quite valuable to quality of food.
Thank you very for travelling together today.
