“Good location and value for money”
Reviewed July 4, 2014 via mobile

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 4nights in July. It is located just off the main road in lamai and right on the beach. Rooms were good size with good aircon. Maybe a few more beds at the pool as many people leave towels all day and never return to beds. The wifi is also a bit dodgy. Overall though...great service from staff and fab location

Stayed here with my girlfriend during the last week of May. lamai was very quiet at the time but that suited us.
The hotel is superbly located in the centre of Lamai Beach, you literally walk off the property on to the sand. Good swimming beach, very clean and safe.
The pool are is nice with plenty of sunbeds. there is also a shaded area of sunbeds under the trees on the edge of the beach, good for those who wish to avoid too much sun.
The Deluxe room was adequate but is probably in need of refurbishment. Breakfast was reasonable, staff very nice and helpful. Overall a pleasant stay and reasonable value.

The hotel is located in the heart of Lamai Beach, meters from the beach itself, close to restaurants/clubs, shops, motorbike/car rental shops, travel agencies, massage parlours etc. Room was good but nothing special - decently sized, clean and quiet. The service is great - courteus, friendly and helpful. It turned out that they can make a booking of an excursion to Anthong National Park and charged it "to the room" (at the same price as the travel agents). Good breakfast with selection of European and Thai food. Great restaurant, although pricier than the average Koh Samui family Thai restaurants, but well worth it. Difficult to give a feedback of value because it was an award booking, but overall I am very pleased with the stay.

We were disappointed with the overall condition of this resort. We booked a Deluxe room but honestly there was nothing really deluxe about it as the room was basic with poor quality fixtures. The lighting in the room was cool white flouros which I find a bit stark for a tiny room. The air conditioner filter was filthy, the walls were grubby and the lamp had mould and marks on it. We weren't provided with any toilet paper on our first day either. We felt this resort lacked attention to detail. The quality of the rooms and resort does not appear to be a priority for them. The pool area and restaurant were rundown and in dire need of a spruce up. On the plus side the gardens were lovely and it was in a good quiet location on the beach and close to restaurants and shops.

Rooms and resort very clear, good service, breakfast good, for the price a good hotel and location is very very good for Lamai, and the rooms are very quiet, I was a bit worried it would be noisy but it was not at all infact the whole place is very relaxing.
For the price you can't go wrong.

Lamai Wanta would have been suburb years ago, but it is now in need of a makeover.

Room:
Good size. Had an odd smell to it, but generally the room was fine. The only downside was the shower and plumbing. Water pressure continually changed, as did the temperature.

Restaurant and Breakfast:
Breakfast was quite good. Buffet style. The restaurant itself was great. The rice paper rolls are fantastic!

Pool:
Small, great view and very relaxing though.

Value:
I think you can get more for your money in Samui

Location:
In the heart of Lamai Beach. Literally on the beach. Backs onto the main strip of Lamai beach with all you need. Including a Muay Thai gym (10 min walk) small supermarkets, massage parlours, restaurants. Quite seedy at night with plenty of girly bars though.

Sleep Quality:
Good. Very quiet at night

Overall, the hotel has fantastic potential. Just needs a bit of a touch up to go from 'average' to 'good'

We stayed 3 nights at the Lamai Wanta. Loction is great, right by the beach near the center for some food and drinks out in the evening. The hotel/pool area is looking slightly dated but overall good value for price paid.
