Tripadvisor reviews

Location

Koh Samet is an unspoiled tropical island in the Gulf of Thailand, located just a 3 hour drive from Bangkok and accessible by Shuttle Boat from Seree Ban Phe pier in Rayong Province. A true vision of paradise, the island is blissfully under developed and has a thick jungle interior emerging on to peaceful bays, hidden coves and sweeping stretches of pristine white sand beaches. The aquamarine waters of the Samet archipelago are ideal for swimming, snorkeling and sailing and as part of the Khao Laem Ya – Mu Ko Samet National Park, offer breathtaking natural backdrops and year round tropical climate.

Take advantage of our VIP luxury minivan transfer between Bangkok’s International Airports and Seree Ban Phe pier. From here take a short 25 minute boat journey across the Gulf of Thailand to our paradise hideaway on Ao Prao Beach, tucked away on Koh Samet’s secluded north western shoreline.

Testimonials

  • Lenny and his team were outstanding. He worked with our schedule and needs perfect and made great suggestions that added to our trip. Every tour we were set up on was amazing and they guides were so friendly, knowledgeable and punctual. This is the first vacation that not 1 single thing went wrong/no details were missed. Lenny was available to answer any questions – big or small- while we were abroad and it was a very nice and secure feeling knowing you are in a different land with someone looking out for you. I travel often, but This is my first review for any service like this and I am doing it because I am so happy and grateful that I used this company!!

    Angela Braganini – luxury trip around Bangkok, Chiang Mai & Phuket
  • This was, by far… the best trip I have ever taken in my whole life and I feel like I owe much of this to Lenny and his outstanding team of professional tour guides. This was a mother daughter trip commemorating my 60th birthday and I will NEVER forget it. It was actually my daughter who booked the trip through Lenny after reading the rave reviews from other travelers and he did not disappoint! NOT ONE SINGLE HICCUP throughout the trip!!!. How many times has anyone actually been able to say that while on a vacation, much less, traveling out of the country?? First class all the way! We traveled to Bangkok, Chang Mai and Phuket. The hotels were amazing, the tours were fabulous. Tour guides were friendly and knowledgeable and spoke wonderful English…not to mention punctual. Lenny pre-arranged all the tours and flights within Thailand. In Bangkok, we did the street food tour, Railway Market,Floating Market and Wat Pho Temple tour. In Chiang Mai, we did the home tour and cooking class in Lanna, the Elephant Valley Sanctuary and had a tranquility spa package at Cheeva Spa. In Phuket, we did the John Grays Sea Cave Tour…I would recommend all of these…they were all 5 star worthy… if not more. Transportation was always provided in a comfortable, air conditioned vehicle. On one evening in Bangkok, Lenny made a recommendation for dinner at Tea-licious and made our reservations for us. He was easily reached on WhatsApp ( reaches out and recommends this before arrival) and was always quick to respond and help in any way. I will sing his praises and recommend him to anyone considering a visit to Thailand or other countries in Asia for that matter since his services are not limited to Thailand. In fact, I’ll go so far as to say, if you don’t use Lenny from Expat Holidays, you’re crazy! Friends and family expressed concern of two women traveling alone in Thailand but I never felt safer..wherever we went. Thank you Lenny for a great and once in a lifetime vacation. I hope to one day need your services again!

    Nancy and Amanda – mother & daughter trip to Thailand
  • I was hesitant to take my three daughters to Thailand without my husband’s help. However, Lenny and his staff were absolutely amazing from the moment I started planning the trip, until the day I came home. I truly felt as if they were right there beside me, helping and guiding me the whole time. I contacted Lenny and his staff on several occasions while in Thailand and they’re responsiveness and helpful guidance were remarkable. Lenny took the time to understand our priorities and effectively personalised our itinerary accordingly. It was a wonderful vacation with very well planned activities and knowledgeable guides. I cannot recommend Expat Holidays Thailand highly enough!!

  • My husband and I have been living in SE Asia for 3.5 years and have used Lenny’s services on many occasions! From a night in Bangkok, to Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam, to arranging everything for a trip for my in-laws, he’s been able to manage it all quickly and efficiently! He is very thorough and provides clear details that ensure you have a magnificent experience. I tell everyone I know about Lenny and his services! I highly recommend getting in touch with him to plan your next SE Asia trip!

    Laurie Ranz, expats based in Bangladesh
  • Thank you Lenny and team for making our trip to Thailand so memorable! All the transfers and tours were exactly as described and we felt at ease the whole trip knowing your team were working away making sure we enjoyed it. Thanks for all the recommendations and especially the elephant tour, definite highlight! We’ve already passed your details to others because we know our friends and family will be in good hands when booking their trips through you. Thank you again for taking such good care of us!
