The Lamai Samui is the new name of Le Meridien. Beautiful place! The photos on the website are pretty representative of the reality.  The view from the dinning room is stunning. The beach is beautiful. The fitness club is ok, just fine but not great. There was no water bottle in the fitness club. The bathroom has a open roof which is pretty inconvenient when it rains. Internet connection is weak. I am an entrepreneur using it all the time including during my holidays and it was below my expectation.  For instance, in my room (6204), it was too weak for video calls. Beautiful place for vacationers who want to enjoy the beach but I needed to work remotely a few hours per day and this place was not what I needed.

We had booked our dream wedding for April 2021 however due to Covid-19 we decided we would need to cancel. We cancelled and our contract stated we would be owed 50% of what we had paid. Our many emails requesting this refund have had no response. This is a cynical attempt to avoid refunding money which is legitimately owed. Be very careful in booking in the current climate especially as they have now re-branded and not part of the Marriot brand-the new hotel is called The Lamai Samui

This is a wonderful resort if you want to 'kick back' and relax. One tip, if you plan a trip go for the villa's with a private pool and beach view...you will not be disappointed! The food selections are very good and Happy Hour on the pier is very good.

Every March I escape to a destination where the climate is hot and the beaches are beautiful. This year, I sought after Koh Samui. This tiny island is a perfect getaway if you are seeking a relaxing time away. Beaches are beautiful, and the Samuians are very polite and warm individuals. I stayed at Le Meridien Koh Samui ...this hotel is very peaceful with grounds that are immaculate. The staff goes beyond expectations to facilitate your requests. Even if it is the impossible, they will try their utmost to make it possible for you. Please expect a level of service that one would not receive elsewhere. It is utterly professional !! I cannot praise the front desk staff - Funnie and Boo for taking such an interest to my needs ! I thank you from the bottom of my heart. The Restaurant staff were equally as professional and engaging ! The cuisine is both local Thai and Western. For those who have a difficult time consuming spicy dishes, there is an options available. If you have a yen for something that is not on the menu, the Chef would be delighted to prepare your request(s). We generally forget to salute the ground staff. At Le Meridien, they were diligent every morning to ascertain that the pool(s) were skimmed, and the pathways were tidy. The poolside staff went above and beyond to prepare my morning chair at the beach with towels. He took note that I enjoyed laying on the beach as opposed to poolside. I thank you Om for being so polite and pampering . The room service staff were very good in making sure that amenities used were replenished. There was never a need to ask for a missing item. Attention to detail was high on the ratings. Lastly ...if you stay at this resort, I implore you to consider having a spa treatment. I experienced a few treatments with Mariam and “oh my” - amazing !!! I highly recommend this hotel if you are visiting the island of Koh Samui. Thank you all at Le Meridien 😘. I hope to see you all soon - perhaps next year. Room 5103 😉😉

Second visit. From the check in with Lann to seeing all the employees we met last year our experience was excellent. This time a bottom floor room consisting of an ante room complete with couch and furnishings for relaxing, bedroom, adjoining open air dipping pool with water jets, and the sprawling enclosed outdoor bathroom. . Pool/ Bar personnel of Om,Nook and a new arrival Benz provided excellent cocktails/food service. (The afternoon grilled kebabs are my fave.) Double Day Beds are excellent.Now the breakfast buffet was again graciously and professionally manned by Pla, Nuning and Palm. Good to know that the staff is consistent.. We ventured next door for dinner one night and again very pleased with the offerings. 5 minute walk down the beach we found a great Happy Hour place with a DJ called Beach Republic. That was from 4-7 pm. Our last evening we dined on the upper deck of Latest Recipe and were pleased that there was a Happy Hour not only during the day but also from 8-9 pm. The mango mojitos as well as all other options were well constructed. At drink end I spooned the chunks of mango out that were infused with rum by then. Yummy. The plate presentations were creative along with the taste and style of the dishes. Kudos to all of the Kitchen Prep. & Chefs.Wonderful ending to a wonderful stay at Le Meridien. May return next year.
