I honestly don't know where the good reviews come from. There are nice places in Thailand and maybe this was once one of them, but it isn't now. The streets reek of sewage. Tacky tourist shops abound. People working here are slightly less aggressive than...More

5 days spent here and enjoyed every minute. It is not as chaotic as nearby Charweng. The water is warm and clean. May is the low season so uncrowded.... But still with great weather. The beach itself is about 4km long with many resorts backing...More

I used to spend more or less half of the year in Samui. Lamaï is for me the best in this island. Between Chaweng the most noisy and touristic place and the quiet of the south. After you chose 😊🙏🏻

We are looking for better beaches than chaweng. Chaweng and Lamai both have plastic in the ocean and washed up on the beach. No one bothers to clean this up, or even prevent it. The water in Thailand is crystal clear but it’s no fun...More

Lamai is similar to Chaweng, with shopping and nightlife being similar but in a smaller scale, there are no night clubs that we saw when there. The pubs and restaurants were great. I would recommend Lamai over Chaweng every day of the week, it offers...More
