Ao Kio, Ko Samet

Rayong

     Located near the furthest end of Ko Samet, Ao Kio is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful islands in the Gulf of Thailand. Ao Kio is an ideal destination for those seeking a holiday paradise, thanks to its fine white sands and secluded locations where hardly a traveller has stepped foot.

     The name “Ao Kio” (‘kio’ means small/narrow in Thai) speaks to the lands characteristic features as the opposing coast lines are incredibly narrow and separated by only a small piece of land. At sunrise, tourists can enjoy the sights of a beautiful dawn rising over the east coast and simply rotate their orientation to enjoy a romantic dinner while taking in the sunset over the west coast.

     There is only one resort available on Ao Kio making the island a perfect holiday choice for couples. The resort spans across both beaches and makes an ideally private kingdom for beach lovers.
