The Sallamai Resort is definitely a great place to stay if you are looking for a place that doesn't cost the world but yet offers that "treat yourself" atmosphere. As mentioned by a lot of people before, the two owners are really really nice. They offer advice on food and sights in the area and make you feel completely at... More

For our first trip to Samui we wanted a hotel close enough to action but quiet and peaceful. We definitely made the right choice. This lovely small resort, close to Lamai beach, stands along a side street with very little traffic during the day and none at night. With 10 rooms only, a shaded garden / patio and a swimming...

It was nice to stay somewhere quiet yet close to the main road and beach. We would definitely recommend renting a scooter as it is a bit of a walk in the heat- inexpensive and a great way to see the sites. The owners were very helpful and accommodating, the pool was nice, breakfast was ok and our room (the... More

Hotel itself can't fault. Very friendly staff, especially owners, always ready to give advise and also offer it. Scooter hire at hotel, jacuzzi in delux rooms. Buffet breakfast very good, eggs to order, fruit, juice and tea/coffee. Few things to bear in mind though. 1. The hotel is around a 20min walk to the beach, and a 10min downhill walk... More

Hello thank you for your comment that will help us to improve the quality of our service. We are currently improving the Wifi network in all rooms despite the irregular service of local providers.

Our stay (me and girlfriend), in Sallamay Resort was of 5 days; hotel is very clean, big breakfast in very quiet location at about 5-10 minutes by motorbike (rentable directly from Bruno or Isabelle, 2 very gently French owners) from the quiet Lamai beach. They can send pick up car when you arrive at Koh Samui. Not a big hotel... More

This small resort is just lovely. There is a real personal touch from the moment you check in, and the owners go above and beyond to ensure you have an enjoyable stay. It's very easy to hire motorbikes right out the front, and we were advised by those at Sallamai of the best backroads to travel on and had a... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our time at Sallamai. The rooms themselves were nice, especially the one with the ocean view, and the jacuzzi. :) The location also suited us quite well, as its a little up the hill and to the north of Lamai beach proper. So we had plenty of quiet up there. Only a short stroll to get into the... More
