“Good stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2012

My stay took place at the end of May 2012 for 5 nights; The resort itself is located in the heart of the entertainment & Shopping in Lamai just off beach Road however you cannot hear any noise at the hotel as its nicely tucked away. We arranged pick up with the hotel which was very straight forward, cost was 500 Bhat. The room was a deluxe room, it was clean, tidy, had air con, cleaned every day with towel`s provided, the bathroom was also in very good condition, there was also a TV in the room. The pool and restaurant is located by the beach which is great, the pool was ok and the beach was also very nice with a private stretch just for Lamai wanta residents, pool towels are provided FOC. Breakfast was good & served between 7.30am to 10.30am. I recommend the massage on the beach front its such a great place to have a massage with the sea just meters away.
I found all staff to be very helpful and pleasant, I would certainly recommend a stay at the lamai wanta if you plan to stay in lamai,.

Room Tip: Ask for a room near the beach front for a lovely sea view.

We had tried to stay at this hotel on a previous trip to Lamai, but it was out of our price range at that time.
This time it was May and low season, we had not reserved a room and arrived at reception after doing some research on Agoda. We got a room reduced from 2400B to 1500B and were very happy with it. The manager was very friendly and helpful and showed me the room before I accepted the price.
The room was on the first floor in a block of rooms, it had a balcony and all the facilities we expected (air con, tv, dvd, safe).
The pool and beach area was great, clean and well looked after with fresh towels for guests to use. The pool manager Jon was very chatty and helpful, with plenty of advice for any questions we had. He has a good knowledge of the area and if you're stuff with anything ask him.
The location is perfect, right on the beach (I consider Lamai to be the best beach on Samui) and only a 3 minute walk to the main street. The night food market is about 7 minutes walk away and this is where you should be eating every night, cheap fresh food and plenty of variety. I don't know how any of the restaurants stay open with this great food market here.
I highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: the basic rooms are good value if you can get them for 1500B

I booked lamai wanta based on the trip advisor reviews. We were a family of 4 with 2 children aged 5 and 8. Whilst the rooms were really nice, very new and comfortable, the communal area was very tatty. The pool is small and in need of repair. All around this area, people had left rubbish and dirty plates and glasses. No one seemed to be cleaning up.The gardens are very average and around the pool there are weeds and unfinished steps. I would not recommend to families.

Overall lamai wanta is a very nice hotel with its own character away from the typical international hotel chains.rooms are nothing special but clean and spacious enough for two. Room prices have gone up from 25 euros four years ago to 60-70 euro per night which is still a fair price compared to other hotels in lamai. There are two things which could be improved: one is the pool area which has no personnel around for keeping the area clean etc. Further the service in the coast cafe is very poor and the staff very unfriendly. However, I would consider to stay in this hotel again if going to samui.

Great little hotel right in the centre of the action. Whilst its in the middle of the resort, its in well established gardens and we were in the block adjacent to the road, no noise. The rooms are spacious with a big comfortable bed with clean linen/towels daily. Free tea/coffee/water too daily. Rooms could do with a full length mirror and a couple of hooks but that's just being picky. Breakfast is served in the restaurant so you can eat whilst looking out on the ocean. Plenty to choose from including the usual continental choice as well as the more British choices too. Live music on a Saturday afternoon however isnt everyone's cup of tea! No problem with getting a sun lounger or pool towels - had a very pleasant stay.

Room Tip: Depends if you want privacy - we asked for a high room which was in block 4 and hence we overlooked...

We stayed a week at lamai wanta. The hotel grounds are beautiful, with gardens and paths to the bungalows and rooms.
The hotel room is very basic, there is a bed, a fridge with water, and a very dark bathroom, but still they provided the best showers, with real water pressure:-)
The breakfast was very good, and the beach bar that opens at noon, provide a very good pineapple smoothie and iced cooffe!!
We came here after travelling in Vietnam,so Koh Samui was very much a culture shock , beacuse here you have sooo many tourists, and everything is made for tourists, dont be surprised if the locals greet you in some scandianvian language ( if you look scandinavian) but, it is a relatively small island, and the taxis are cheap, if you dont want to take your chances in a motorcycle and drive around the island your self. If you really want to go to Koh Samui and Lamai Beach, then this hotel is a reasonable choice.
