The resort is situated on the little rocky North end of Lamai Beach on Koh Samui. I originally booked one of the small fan cooled bungalow. It does say on the description that the bungalow is small and indeed it was. Everything is well fitted in but at the end of the day you can barely walk around the bed.... More

The location is awesome ... until night start and Beach republic start their noisy music. If you are looking for a quiet and relaxing place, you can skip. I don't understand why the managers don't do anything against this noisy neighbour

Second time we have visited, you can't beat the amazing views, we stayed in the beach front huts. If you want peace and relaxation we chose to stay in May the beach was deserted it felt like we had the place to yourselves, while the town is still bustling, so the best of both worlds.

We stayed at the Lamai Bayview Resort during the May-June low season. This resort is perfect for couples wanting to get away in a very cosy and quiet setting. Individual bungalows are set in a tropical garden on sloping terrain that ends in a beautiful beach. Basically, accommodation price is a function of bungalow size, not so much on amenities.... More

We stayed here over the xmas period and had two huts as our children were meeting us there. Although not an unpleasant experience we found the attitude of staff totally indifferent and quite frankly not attentive in any way. We were most shocked when other visitors discovered they had bedbugs (we saw evidence of this) and the hotel staff were... More

We have stayed 3 times now at the Lamai Bay View resort in Koh Samui. Accommodation - We stayed in bungalow 402, which is very close to the beach and has unspoilt views across Lamai Bay, which is really beautiful and a joy to wake up to. Staff - The staff were always very polite and extremely helpful to us,... More

I personally would not stay again at Lamai Bay View Resort. The staff were friendly enough however the rooms need much improvement. Could feel the springs in the bed and the water pressure in the shower wasn't great. Ordered a few times off the menu and again very average. Would rate this resort as 2 stars at best. Okay for...

My friend and I stayed at this resort over Christmas and realised we were being bitten by bedbugs, then we caught one in the bed. We discretely told the hotel staff and they provided an alternative room. We asked for bedbug spray for our luggage/belongings and assumed our previous room would be treated. When we were given ant/cockroach spray we... More

The best view of this hotel is from down below in the sea from where some of the bungalows can be seen dotted on the hillside in a classic, individual, thatched design. The site is not for the physically challenged as some of the lowest bungalows, close to the sea, have steep steps leading down to them. We were lucky... More
