I loved the time spent at this lovely hotel and Island. French Owners and staff are very polite and friendly. Rooms extremely clean. The breakfast is nice European style with nice natural home made jams, yogurt and juice. For those with interest in speaking Portuguese to better communicate, right beside is a family friend operated guest house with similar conditions!... More

Where do we even begin with wonderful place. Isabelle, Bruno and the staff at the Sallamai Resort are a credit to this beautiful Island. We had the pleasure of staying here for 8 nights, 5 nights in the 'lovely room', the remaining nights in the 'master poolroom'. Both rooms were spacious, clean, modern and complete with Aircon, a safe and... More

The room was good. I would say it was excellent but definitely good. Overlooked a large undeveloped field with a Muay Thai ring on the other side. I could hear the punches and kick. Never made it over there. Sad. The owners are French and I believe several of the guests were too. They were having a great time with... More

Thank you very much Barney for your comment the Sallamai team shares and appreciates. Actually there are few plugs in each room that do not cut the electricty when you leave the room. We apologize for not indicating you this point. We hope to see you again and share a glass of French wine with you ! More

We stayed with another couple and had originally booked a two night stay but easily extended to a third night while we were staying. Sadly we had booked through Expedia rather than direct and so they were unable to apply the 20% discount for a 3 night stay but they were very accommodating in general. This small hotel is set...

Zen peaceful in Lamai! I have nothing negative to say. The rooms big, new and clean. The sparkling pool was so relaxing with perfect water temperature. Soft spa music added to the ambiance. Breakfast was delicious. The house keeping staff friendly but not intrusive. But most of all was Isabele the owner, she was always available to assist with every... More

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
