I feel it is important to point out that the reviews on Trip Advisor under the heading "Thai House Beach Resort" (which is a 4.5 star resort right on Lamai beach) are wrongly intermingled with the hotel details, photos and reviews for a completely separate business called Grand Thai House Resort (which is a 3 star resort also in Lamai but 200 metres back off the beach with direct access to the beach via soi). The confusion commences with the street address on Trip Advisor which is for the Grand Thai House NOT Thai Beach House Resort; all of the "professional photos" are for Grand Thai House Resort NOT Thai Beach House; many of the travellers photos, for example a most recent photo entitled "view from top floor room (sold as a 'pool... (thecoaster, Apr 2013)" is from the room I occupied on top floor of the Grand Thai House Resort. Similarly all of the photos by (Kristofino, Jan 2013) and many others are for the Grand Thai House Resort.
So having tried to clear up the confusion between these two businesses this review is all about Grand Thai House Resort. In March 2013 I had the pleasure of spending 8 days here and I cannot recommend this hotel strongly enough. For about AUD50 per night you can have a large airconditioned room with an ocean view, a huge bathroom, breakfast with eggs cooked to order, a good-sized pool, easy access to the beach, free internet. The Manager Piak is most sympathetic to guests needs and arranged all transfers and sightseeing tours for us. I suggest taking an island tour with Mr. Por's luxury minibus service for a reasonable THB 500 p.h.
I am a frequent visit to Koh Samui and have stayed in Lamai on many occasions since 2010 in all levels of accommodation from 3 to 5 stars. I strongly recommend Lamai over Chaweng and for a budget-conscious visitor I think the Grand Thai House Resort represents the best value for money accommodation I have experienced in Samui.
