La Lune Beach Resort
Ranked #11 of 61 Ko Samet B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 6, 2013

Went there in late June 2013.

Besides the sandy floor in the room, the hotel is very clean. Breakfast is international and included. Didn't eat there for dinner, but the food looked nice. Beach is clean and beautiful, not too busy. There is a great bar/restaurant if you walk out to the beach and go 20 meters to left. If your boat doesn't land in the bay of the hotel it will be a challenge to find it, but manageable.
If you look for party, you will not find it at that beach. There are taxis available to party locations for about 150-200 THB.

Definitely good value for money!

We loved it!! Its brand new hotel, rooms even smell as new. Spotless clean. Flat screen tv. Comfy beds, nicely working air con. Lovely cosy swimming pool. Hotel is situated just by the beach so you can enjoy the view when you have a breakfast or some drink at the evening. In my opinion its situated in the "posh" part of the island. The only issue we had was lack of internet. It shows you are connected but it never worked. If they can sort it out it would easily be 4* hotel. There is also this nice chatty boy from Philipines (i forgot his name). He was very helpfull! :)

We took a 3 hours bus ride from Ekkamai Bus Terminal and a 20 mins speed boat from Baan Phe Pier. Travelling was fine.

Arrived at the hotel about 3pm. The registration was short and sweet and we were guided to our room on the second floor. All rooms have balcony overlooking the swimming pool which was quite pleasant. Unfortunately, there was a big group of staying in the hotel and they had karaoke party that night. A bit noisy then but the whole event ended at 10pm. Just nice for a good night rest in a totally quiet surrounding. Bed was quite comfy.

We visited the restaurant upon arrival as the hotel's kitchen is not available. Food was okay and don't expect to be cheap since you are in a tourist attraction. Also, you will have several flying companies going around your food. Not much of activity around at night, only restaurants, pubs and bars around.

The hotel's pool is okay to swim in but don't expect clear and clean water. I believe it is because some guests went to the sea and went straight for the pool, sand caused the blurry effect. Would be good if there is a shower station near the pool so that guests from the sea can rinse themselves before jumping into the pool.

Breakfast was just average. Not much of variety. We brought our breakfast to the beach front and it was a different experience. Only if the food was great, the whole experience will be awesome.

The room provide very basic amenities, only soap, shower cap, cotton bud. No toothbrush, shampoo or conditioner, telephone, alarm clock. If you need something, you need to go down to the reception and the reception is not available at night. The room users 2 straight pin hence do remember to bring your own adapter (not available at hotel). Wifi connection works well for me in the room.

Overall, the stay was a pleasant one with a few issues here and there. Might consider staying again.

Room Tip: Bring you own adapter because the hotel do not provide with any. It is available at the minimart nex...

We stayed at La Lune during Songkran. We didn't really want to stay in a typical hotel, but by the time we got around to booking all the usual places we stay were full. I feared with the 'U' design that this hotel was going to be very noisy during Songkran. I could not have been more wrong. It was dead silent (minus the nasty storms that came through). Our rooms were on the ground floor behind the lobby (no partial ocean view as described). They were incredibly clean. The AC worked great and the shower had hot water and decent water pressure.
We didn't use the pool as it was always full of young children, but it looked nice and clean. The hotel has beds and chairs set up on the beach. They don't have staff helping you set up or move umbrellas, but we managed fine. There is a mini mart very close for water, beer, and snacks. We only had breakfast at the hotel which wasn't very good so we ate our other meals at neighboring restaurants. Many of the neighboring restaurants have fire shows. The Baywatch bar that is next door stays open late and that seems to be the only place open late on this stretch of beach. Quite different from our other stays on Koh Samet.

Room Tip: Wifi is only availble in the lobby, but our 2 rooms just behind the lobby could occasionally pick up...

The resort is new and the room is nice and bathroom is very clean. The pool is a little small, but still more than adequate for a cool dip during the day. Even though the sea is just steps away, it's still very nice to have a pool. Staff is efficient with check-in and check-out process. Booking for snorkelling trip went smoothly too.

We did not managed to get the rooms facing the ocean, but there is still sea view from the balcony of the room. The breakfast is quite disappointing though. Selection is limited though there are efforts to offer different food on different days. Biggest problem is too many flies around.

Stayed here 3 nights with a friend in April. Most places were booked out so we settled on Lalune.

The room was very comfortable and we slept well, however, the noise level from other guests using the pool and balconies is high. If you have young children, they may not sleep well at night. Nice pool, gets lots of sun during the day. The beach is very busy with lots of boats coming in and jetskis etc.

The beach restaurant at the front of the resort is pretty but best avoided. They messed up our orders multiple times, and the chicken was so overcooked it was inedible. My cocktail tasted like metholated spirits (no joke).

Lalune advertises it has wi-fi but the first day the wi-fi was broken. After that is worked occasionally, but only in the front dining area - not the room.

Breakfast food is covered in flies and staff made no attempt to cover anything.

The Vongdeuan resort at the end of the beach has a nice restaurant overlooking the water, a much better eating option. The cafe there also has the best cha yen smoothies.

As a local Thai who frequently visits samed island a few times per year, I finally get to try this newly opened hotel on Wongduen beach. Overall, I am highly impressed and would recommend this place to both locals and foreigners alike. First, the booking went very smooth despite some changes from my end. Second, once I arrived, the hotel is well located and beautifully decorated. Samed island has been such a popular destination for so many years so it is full of old hotels or bungalows. Lalune is different....it is a beachfront low rise hotel with a cute pool in the middle. The vibe is very young, contemporary and very clean. Room is equipped with good amenities and most importantly...the bed is so big and comfy.
Lastly, on e I checked out, I left a few items including CASH behind. I only remembered it the next day when I am back in Bangkok already. I phoned Khun Thip, the representative at Bangkok office. not only did she gladly coordinated the whole thing but I managed to get everything back in perfect conditions including all the money. I still couldn't believe my luck and can only thank them.
If you wish for a pleasant friendly cozy stay, Lalune is your place. It is not the cheapest place in Wongduen beach, but it surely worths the slight splurge for a nicer beach experience.
