“Great value for money excellent location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2010

Central location in Lamai with many restaurants, bars, shopping etc within easy walking distance and only 2 minutes from the beach. I found the hotel quiet even though I was there during Lunar New year celebrations. Comments about local bar music noise not consistent with my experience. The rooms are clean and comfortable with TV, small fridge, shower etc. Basic breakfast included might get boring after a few days but ample and I always started the day on a full stomach. Resort style garden pool with sun loungers and umbrellas (free) which I never had a problem obtaining. Honeymooners or romantic couples might want a more upscale hotel but otherwise most should be comfortable here. Chaweng is only 50 baht away by tuk-tuk but expect to pay at least 100 baht to return at night. Great value for money and I would certainly return.

Stayed here for just over a week, this hotel is excellent with a fantastic pool. The rooms are about 1800 Baht per night including breakfast (loads to choose from). Clean rooms everyday and friendly staff. Hotel is situated right on Lamai road and opp market. I would def stay there again one of my favourites in Samui.

I spent over 3 weeks in Samui with the intention of leaving Lamai after 2 weeks. However I enjoyed my stay in Lamai and Am Samui so much I stayed for 3 weeks.

The hotel is extremely clean, staff very friendly and very central in Lamai. The hotel is across ther road from the night food market which cooks amazing food cheaply. Also only 50bht per person to Chaweng at night as I found that the nightlife in Lamai is not great.

Pool is large and has many sunbeds. Only 3 mins to beach and would recommend hiring a moped to travel around the island during the day. Breakfast is very good with a large selection and you are not ripped off with overpriced Gala dinners on Xmas and NYE as they are not put on by the hotel. It's your choice of how you want to spend these evenings.

Would recommend this hotel to anybody. Also wheelchair friendly. Great hotel at half the prices charged by some hotels in Chaweng.
