Shangri-La Bungalows
Ranked #14 of 57 Specialty Lodging in Mae Nam
Reviewed June 26, 2013

Very nice spot at the beach. We drove around Koh Samui to find the perfect spot and we found it. Very calm place, the Bungalows very clean just at the beach, The People there take a lot of care of the place, they do the garden always to keep it in perfect condition. The Restaurant has a lot of choice, but i recommend you to look outside as well , like there are a lot of better options. (Uncle Noi for example). Ist very well located, the owner is friendly, although they dont speak very good english. They clean the room every three days. They rent motorcycles also. I would come back to Shangri La again

Room Tip: Choose Bungalow with AC ist worth it.

Very good value and the most beautiful beach I saw on the Island. The beach is clean, the water is warm and clean and the quiet waves allow you to swim out into the ocean without any fear of not been able to get back onto the beach. Highly recommended for romantic couples.

Room Tip: We had bungalow B34 for the whole month, about 150m from the beach, very quiet and pleasant. We thin...

We stayed in one of the air conditioned bungalows and they were lovely. Big bed, tv, wifi and hot water, plus we were 10 seconds from the beach. The owners were lovely and very friendly. The food was amazing also, really cheap and a big selection on the menu. I would definitely stay here again.

I was staying at Shangri-La Bungalows in February 2011.A friend of mine recomended me to stay there.She said that it was basic but very relaxing.and she was right.There is a very beautiful beach with palmtrees so you don't need an umbrella to protect you from the sun and with only a few people.The room was very basic with a fan and a cold water and not the smallest one at the hotel with a small terrace with a table and two chairs (romantic place for two to drink,have a talk and listen the sound of the sea in the late evening) for 700 Bth per night..There were cheaper room but it was too small for me..My room was clean enough though you need to ask the staff to clean the room (not every day cleaning).The staff did his job very well and was very friendly.I also took a motorbike for rent and everything was ok with it (we know that in some places we could have problems with not very honest owners of the bikes for rent).
So i'm going to stay again there in october 2012 cause i like it very much..

This was one of the best places we stayed and we are travelling extensively for 8 months. The location was amazing. Very relaxing. We paid 500 baht a night between two (12 euro) and for this we got a comfortable bungalow with a fan right on the beach (30 second walk from the shore) and although basic, you get everything you need.
Alot of reviews mention the bugs but we must have been very lucky as we didn't see very many (and I am terrified of bugs so would have hated it if there had been loads!)
Twice we took a moped out to Chaeweng beach and were horrified... it was dirty with tons of tourists and the beach was packed with touts. I was relieved to get back to Mae Nam each time!! Also, the staff were very, very friendly and we were able to keep a tab for our meals which was handy. The beach is beautiful and idyllic - if you're looking for paradise, look no further.

We stayed here after a disastrous hotel booking in Chaweng. Took bikes for a run and found this place. Shangrilah have an older section of villas which look to be pretty rundown. We booked into one of the brand new villas and found them to be very clean, (really hard beds), great showers, no coffee making facilities, metres to the beach and a great massage service.

We only had dinner here once (it was ok) breakfast was fine and there are a lot of little restaurants around to try.

The service is a bit hit and miss but honestly this isn't unheard of in Thailand!!!

We really enjoyed our stay here and our friends daughter and her friend stayed here on our recommendation and also enjoyed their stay.

The new bungalows are about 1500 bht a night and I would only stay here if this was the accommodation I was getting.

Overall, we would stay here again.

A note to travellers: If at some stage during your stay in Thailand, be warned about using the Lomprayah Catamaran transfer service. Whilst the Catamaran itself is ok, there seems to be huge problems with transfers associated with this company. Twice we were ripped off with transfers either not turning up or not what they were advertised to be. Book your transfers separately - do it yourself! If there is a mix up they don't care as they have already been paid and they will not refund!!! Judging by the large amount of travellers stranded in their depots, we were not alone. Beware!

Like another reviewer below, we booked this by walking in. Got shown our room- small with bed looking not clean but v reasonable price so we booked as had brought sleeping bags with us. Paid upfront, then went back to discover the cockroaches- hid under bed when we scared it, dread to think what else was in there. Reasonable price and staff were friendly enough, but overall very dirty.

Also, don't be fooled if walking in and tempted by free wifi- when we asked about this staff giggled and said it was 'down today'.....not convinced there is any....
