Al's Laemson Resort
Ranked #77 of 104 Hotels in Chaweng
Reviewed January 8, 2013

Thankfully well out of Chaweng which was full of very drunk UK and Aussie tourists. Bungalows were good and worked well for our family group; staff pleasant but not terribly efficient. Only downside was when it came to hiring a motorbike from reception. Having booked a larger cc one, it was not available on the day. When I took a smaller model and returned it the receptionists husband emerged (he turned out to own the bike) and he insisted I had caused damage to the bike which I had not. Tried to extract 5,000 baht before giving my passport back! Lesson learnt: be seen to check the bike initially and photo any damage; write note on contract. Walk to the main road (5 mins) - better selection at cheaper prices and no monkey business. Good massage on the left up the hill but not a posh one.

Stayed: January 2013, traveled with family

Tell you the truth, at first I did not expect much, but when I stay here this was my wonderful time in Koh Samui. Staff are very friendly even some they need to improve their English. Most of them, are helpful. The pool and pool bar was great I did spend of my time there.
Even, the hotel is not in an entertainment area but you can get free shuttle bus from the hotel to Chaweng Walking Street Plaza.
You will love it.

This is a very nice hotel for people looking for a quiet location. It has a private beach which is kept reasonably clean and one nice size swimming pool. Although not situated in the centre of the resort it is only a short bus ride away which is provided free of charge by the resort. The room was spacious and fairly well equiped.

The staff ruined our holidays, the place is dirty, staff is absolutely clueless what customer service means, the room was never cleaned properly, the towels has holes! Room service order never arrived, beach towels never available, disaster!

Very, very nice rooms, everything you should expect form a good hotel.. The pool is nice, though a bit small taking the hotel's capacity in consideration.
App. 1 kilometre from the centre of Chaweng. The beach in front of the hotel is ok, nothing special. But, around the corner starts wonderful Chaweng beach and it very easily accesible (200 metres perhaps). Plus, you are away from the buzz of the masses this way.
I highly recommend their massage services, the best i tried in Koh Samui.
Enjoy!

I was there during the period of 20th to 24th of august. The location was perfect! In a quiet place just few miles away from the nightlife and the most amazing place. The private beach was ok but just around the corner (2 min walk) you'll find the typical Samui's Paradise...white sand and crystal clear water! I defenitely reccomand this place and I also suggest to rent a scooter (200mt from the hotel for only 150bath a day) in order to save money with taxi and visit all the monument of this amazing island!!
