We were in the cheapest rooms but it would have been better in a higher standard room as the rooms didn't have a fridge or hot water. We didn't NEED anything more though. The resort is in a really nice spot, on the beach with the resort pool right next to the loungers. It is a bit of a walk... More

We went there at full moon party so we had to book 5 nights which sucked. Lamai chalet is located right at the beach, but definatly at the ugliest part of it. Wouldnt say That the staff is unfriendly but theyre not able to speak a single word english. The worst about lamai charlet is its owner. I'm pretty sure... More

Resort staff didn't know much English. Resort owner wasn't very friendly at first and a bit grumpy to be honest. After a few days he then spoke to me. If you're German or Swiss then you might be greeted a bit better... It's not in a great location and a bit difficult to find at first. Rooms were kept clean.... More

We got to lamai chalet in high spirits, which where soon quashed when we met the owner he was rude, offensive and made in appropriate death threats! Which although where a joke, wouldn't put it past him! The room we paid for was air conditioned but instead we got a fan room! There where ants all over our room. The... More

Arrived at Lamai Chalet with a 3 day booking which has since turned into a long turn stay. So far we have changed our booking to 5 weeks with the option to extend. We were welcomed by the staff and shown our accommodation which was clean and homely. The Owner, Pumpey, and his wife, Kob, run an efficient operation and... More

Arrived at Lamai Chalets for 2 nights and nearly 3 weeks later I am still here! Staff are all very friendly, the location is fabulous! A beach with a view to cherish! The owner is kind and helpful - he is a gentle giant with a big heart. He has made the stay very easy and nothing is ever too... More

From having a terrible experience in a hotel in Chaweng to arriving at Lamai Chalets, this is now my home-away-from-home. From the minute we arrived at Lamai Chalets, the Owner, his wife and the staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Lamai Chalets is perfectly positioned just minutes away from Lamai town, but remote enough to... More

We came to south area of Lamai because we knew it is calm and quite cheap place. We didn't have reservation and saw about 15 hotels and choose this finally. We got 2 rooms with conditioner and hot water. Room has original design: bathtub inside room (in corner) and toilet on open air (between roof and wall there is some... More

Boarded off a cruise with my cousin in high spirits and eagerly looking foward to an amazing four days in Koh Samui. To our surprise, the manager who would drive us to the hotel is Swiss like us. We immediatley recieved aggressive and disrespectful comments from him such as, "Daddy, paid for your vacation didn't he.?" or "[--], Switzerland, I'm... More
