“Great place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

Had an emergency and had to stay in Koh samui for longer. Baan kluaymai took us in and placed us in a great room at a great rate too. Great tv, great toiletries, good location, and super friendly staff. They significantly went out of their way to accommodate us, and I cannot recommend them enough.

Stayed (couple) for 5 nights at this guesthouse. The 500 baht rooms are spacious, clean, airconditioned and convenient. Large bathroom. We avoid housekeeping from getting into our rooms, however every request for fresh towels, toilet paper etc. was answered kindly and immediately.
We booked a drive to Ban Lipa Yai through the reception, but due to a misunderstanding, completely their fault, the driver did not show up at the scheduled time. We gave them another shot the next day, and then they failed providing the service for the agreed price (good thing we checked with the driver when he arrived). The saga continued a bit,but the bottom line is - as a compensation they gave us one night free, which meant we slept there for 400 baht per night on average.
Bottom line - great place to stay, great location and clean rooms, a real bargain - but stay away from any additional tourist service they provide.

This is a guest house I found after my bad experience at the Chaweng Cacana hotel just across the road. I have been there 3 consecutive years and after doing more research, I have decided to stay there again this year. I can bring the price down to 500 Baht, the rooms are really amzing, masive beds, huge, the furniture has a Japaness twist to it, it's beautifull. Very comfortable beds, very good, clean and all in working order bathroom with hot water 24-7, clean towels, soap, you name it. The lights actually work and they are bright enough to see your self unlike othetr hotels and they hav ebeautifull lamps too. Fridge, they used to do mini bar service but certain guests abussed it by not paying so sadly they stopped it, but there's no reason why you can't go into 7-11 and stock it up yourself, it's just around the corner, and the air conditioning, this is hard one to find in the so called 3 star hotels in Samui, it works! brilliantly. It's extremly clean, room are cleaned daily, you get your towels, the staff are friendly and it's a 5 minute walk from my fauvorite hotel, the Grand Centara Resort. This is a five star hotel and I will hire a towel or get a drink, which ever. It will save you a fortune and pleaces you right in Chaweng, you only have to walk down the beach or the road, or take the Tukk tuk's, they are comunal taxis, an inexpensive way to travell Samui if you want to go quiet far or you are just plain lazy. It's got all the fabvoulos restaurants from European, to South and Latin American, Thai cousine of course. Take some advice and find out where the locals eat, it's an unforgetable experience and you will get food you willl NEVER get in the tourist places, loads of diffrent dishes, try and find some one Thai to take you.
Back to the Baan Klumaui, it is by far in my opinion on eof the best value, comfort, decor, sleep quality, cleanliness and location. It's got everything going for it. And all at your door step. Tours will pick you up right outside the door.

I hope this was helpfull.

Room Tip: Ask for the ones upstairs.
