This is our second stay here at the Wanta and we were very happy again with the standard and quality of the hotel. The location is just about perfect on lamai beach with the best section of sand and sea and close proximity to the shops and restaurants. If you are looking to stay at Lamai be aware that the...

Great option for the price, most of the rooms are set back from the beach in a garden which does mean that there are a lot of bugs, but it is quiet and the pool is great. The Breakfast was over priced at 250 baht so we ate elsewhere.

We were recommended this by a friend so booked for 6 nights. Our 1st night was a tad disappointing as we had arrived from Koh Tao which we loved and everything was very quiet here! Our room had a bad musty smell and the restaurant was closed. After a good night sleep we asked if we could change rooms which... More

Surprised to read some one of the previous reviews about a lack of friendliness. Was at the Wanta for a week in May, staying in one of the stand alone buildings/villas. Staff was always friendly and forthcoming. Location is great, right in the middle of Lamai Beach. Beach is right in front of the resort, 10 seconds between pool and... More

This is an excellent property for the money. The rooms are large, clean with nice decor. Great big shower with good water pressure. The balcony is lovely to sit on as it overhangs the garden and the breeze wafts up from the beach. The pool and restaurant area is nice and you can choose to swim in the ocean or... More

My 6th (?) maybe visit and it still,offers good value for money. Good location and right on the beach - Infinnity pool still great (though some tiles need replacing). Wifi signal hit/miss and having to constantly re-enter the code a pain. Breakfast is standard fare in Thailand at this level,of hotel m however it's still a good place to stay... More

Not a huge fan of lamai Wanta, for several reasons. #1 being the lack of friendliness of the staff. A piece of advice...do your taxi/boat tickets across the street or anywhere else because the hotel will charge you at least 200baht more per ticket, for some reason. I guess the front desk takes a commission. The wifi worked about 50%... More

I initially booked the hotel for 4 days with a nice deal on Booking, but I liked it so much I ended up staying there for the rest of my holiday with the second booking on Agoda. The hotel is right on the beach and has a very nice surrounding as soon as you pass the boundary. It doesn't look... More

Just back from 2 lovely weeks in Koh Samui - we were based at the Lamai Wanta Hotel and couldn't fault it!! I was with my friends John and Jill and we had requested rooms on the first floor level and near each other. Both requests were met - we were actually next door to each other. Our rooms were...
