My family of six stayed at the Sallamai in three rooms for eight days during the first part of January, 2017. We arrived in the midst of the worst flooding and rainfall that Koh Samui had seen in decades. It was very unusual weather for that time of the year. This meant, however, that we couldn't do too much around...

Bruno and Isabel could not have been nicer. No issue there. But I am going to be a bit critical because the other reviews are so stellar. The location is far from ideal. One needs transportation. The beach and the nicer shopping areas are a long walk away. While there are some restaurants and shops nearby, they aren't that nice....

Hello Bruce thank you for your very interesting review and comments. You are correct to mention (and we will never insist enough it seems) that we are located a bit off the busy areas of Lamai, the reward being a quiet and peaceful environment. It is true that individual transportation is needed such as a scooter or a car, but...

Thank you for your lovely review the Sallamai team appreciates. You are right to point out that we are located at 400m from the main road (not really at 15 min walk but 5 min ;-)) and that to get around in Samui to discover the hidden treasures of the island renting a scooter or a car is compulsory.

Dear Sheldoz you booked and stayed 1 night as you planned it, no need to run. True that blankets are available at reception on request, but if you had carefully checked before booking (or simply asked for it) you should have noticed that reception is open from 8AM until 8PM... No surprise. As far as your other comments are concerned,...
