“Better than expected. Good Value.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012

We ended up at this resort by co-incidence, during a Thai holiday weekend, with most places fully booked. They are a bit of a walk from the beach and we got one of the last large rooms. They were clean and had air-con. This is not Bangkok, but an island with still many backpackers, so we were quite happy and would go back there. Staff was average, it seem most of the Thais on this island have a bit an attitude. The area is on a party beach. So it is not very quiet until 2 am or so.

Room Tip: Look at them first! They don't mind showing you what is vacant.

I stayed here during the low season, and have to say that the price I paid for a similar hotel and room was much cheaper than on Koh Chang. I would recommend this hotel to those not on a budget but not wanting to be extravagant either but still want some home comforts

Stayed here for 6nights in March.
The rooms are good, clean and quiet. Got a good price on the room especially compared to some of the other rooms we looked at.
Its only a short walk from a beach and places to eat, everything is in easy reach of here.
Nothing really to complain about and you can certainly do alot worse!

I spend some time there in Feb 2012 and I thought the place was great. It had been renovated
a year or so ago, rooms were clean and quiet with friendly staff. Its a short walk away from the beach and I was glad to be up the hill as no noise heard up there from the somewhat
noisy disco Silversands down on the beach. The owner Dave was very helpful and gave sound
advice.
Wonderful nature all around and we had good fun having our "sundowner cocktail" with
others guests on the terrace, swapping travel tales and laughs.
A great place especially for the low prices. Anybody complaining should maybe stick to Club
Med!!

Traveled with my friend and we stayed in Koh Samet for 2 nights. To be honest, after reading the comments how dreadful the owner Dave is, I was surprised when he replied my email for the reservation and booking. He seems very friendly. So, I'm stayed in this resort for 2 nights. Situated in so called ' Koh Samet's Party Beach of Ao Phai', this resort is the hidden gem of Ao Phai. Very quiet and suitable to the nature lovers. We have a good sleep and the room clean indeed! However, I would like to comment about the shower head, the water splash is not strong enough. Another disadvantage is this resort quite far from the beach compared to other B&B.

We arrived at Samet with a very small budget in mind. Dave found us wandering around and told us about his place. He was very straight forward about it not being close to the beach (although it is only a 3-4 minutes walk). After reading the reviews on here about how dreadful Dave and the hotel is, I was actually quite pleasantly surprised!

Dave was courteous and straight forward and the rooms were better than anything else at the same price on Samet.

For all of those who are slagging him and the hotel off, perhaps if you are looking for something romantic or good for the family, you might look at extending your budget a little bit!?

When booking one month in advance, calling to reconfirm a week before check-in, one would think that the two rooms that we had booked would be waiting for us. Not the case at The Lost Resort.

When arriving with spouse and parents at Koh Samet, carrying all our bags up the road to this place (far from the beach), we are greeted by the rudest Englishman I've ever met. When it turns out that they don't have our booking, he don't apologize and try to make up for it. Instead, he has the decency to tell us that we should know better, than to book with his staff (!) instead of booking through the website (one would think that calling twice and receive a confirmation twice would be enough!). Cause after all, according to the owner, one can't expect more from a place where you pay 800 THB/night. And this is coming from the owner himself!

When it turns out that it's a long weekend and a music festival going on on the island, and everything is fully booked, he refuses to help us with calling any of the other hotels, always coming back to the same thing - that it's ours, not his (!) fault!

I have never met a man being so rude or so unhelpful in my entire life. He himself apparently had no belief in the place he's running, or the staff he's hiring, calling them (in our faces) idiots, drunkards and other impolite things.

After arguing with him for 30 minutes, realizing that we would get nowhere, we decided to go to Tub Tim, where we managed to get their last two bungalows for 600 THB, and were greeted by smiling Thai management and staff.

I would not recommend The Lost Resort to anyone!
