We decided when we went to Ko Samui that we would not stay beach front in a big resort, instead we chose a quiet smaller resort set back from the main area's in the hills. What an incredible place, so quiet, peaceful, fantastic hosts and great service. Would highly recommend for travellers who want to retreat at the end of... More

We stayed here for 1 night passing through from Koh Tao to Bangkok and it was excellent. The lady who greeted us was so friendly and welcoming and went over and above anything I have experienced in Thailand so far. We had to leave early the next day so she offered to pack our breakfast and leave it in our... More

Nothing wrong to say about the Salamai Resort ! We stayed few nights in October and had a great time with our family. The hotel is beautiful, with attention to details, well located (only 10min from the beach and even closer with a scooter or a car), the staff is more than friendly and welcoming and will give you some...

My fiancé and I stayed here for 4 nights in one of the rooms with a private jacuzzi and it was wonderful. The hotel owners are lovely and incredibly helpful. We hired a scooter to get around the island (by far the easiest and cheapest way to get around) and enjoyed delicious breakfasts at the hotel each morning. The resort... More

This is a wonderful place. Spotlessly clean and really friendly. Breakfast is delicious especially the home made yoghurt. The owners are very accommodating. The only but is that I would not recommend it for young children; it is too serene and as a parent you are very aware of spoiling others tranquillity. I would definitely go here with older children... More

The hotel is an unique complex either for the management (mr.Bruno and his wife) nor for th rooms. The Sallamai is located just 10 minutes by scooter (you need it!!) from the Lamai town and from Lamai beach. We take the deluxe room which has furniture in stone and the wardrobe is made in bamboo.
