Al's Laemson Resort
Ranked #75 of 103 Hotels in Chaweng
Reviewed January 30, 2014

Excellent facilities and very well priced- far enough from the crowds in Chaweng market but not too far either. The pool is great and the hotel's beach is rather pretty too. The cottages are lovely. Overall a very charming place and amazing value for money.

The place has a real charm. I've stayed four times over a number of years and have loved it each time. The bungalows are basic but have everything you need, the beach feels very private and the pool is lovely. Great value for money.

Room Tip: There are some bungalows that look over the beach or pool, but they tend to be noisier as more peopl...

My friend and I booked the room for 30 Dec till 1 Jan 2014. We understood that the price was being more than double during this time. Overall the hotel is ok in terms of amenities including fast, punctual air port transfer, shuttle van to Chaweng Business centre. My only concerned would be the compulsory gala dinner on New Year eve. Paying 3000 baht per person we expected more but e it seemed like being scammed through and through. Before coming here, we had emailed asking us being Muslim and the Front Office Manager (Surasak Hongsaeng had replied on 2 Dec 2013 that special menu will be prepared for us. Regrettably this did not happened and we were left to eat very little choice not worth paying. Other than that, the hotel cunningly as us to order drinks before (with exorbitant price no less) before the menu spread was opened. Can’t 3000 baht per person cover the cost of drink even for the non-alcoholic one?
All in all i would like to stay here again during non festival time.

We acknowledge your comment for the recent conclusion of our Gala dinner last Dec. 31,2013. We would like to extend our apology for the said information we had relayed for the special food for non vegetarian guest as we were not able to re-announce the said food location upon your arrival on the dinner buffet line.

We are very glad that overall the resort had made your stay a good one only that the gala dinner was not been the one you are expecting. We will consider this observation in order that we have the room for improvement regarding the preparation and more inclusion on our gala dinner food.

We hope that you can drop by our property again in one of your future holiday.

Stayed at Al's Laemson for four nights, booked through agoda for an unbelievable price! The resort is beautiful but not very well maintained e.g the taps in the pool toilets have no running water and our patio doors were covered in finger prints upon arrival. I've enjoyed the location as it's away from the VERY busy town but only 10 minutes slow walk into it. Major downside for me is the restaurant. Having seen the photos I was excited to see its location by the beach. However it RIDICULOUSLY over priced, 150 baht more than in town in most cases and not half as good quality. I was treated as an inferior guest when I told the morning waiter that I did not have breakfast excluded and had to pay. He spoke abruptly and with annoyance to me when I enquired about breakfast and then had the cheek to charge me for service when I never received any.

We felt disturbed by the said comment and observation. We already look up to the unfavorable observation as quoted regarding the actuation of our service waiter. We gave a caution to the said staff overall for projecting a polite attitude in assisting our guest whatever be the situation. Your comment on some unclean areas of the hotel was a big help that we are now making an improvement of the system and procedure to addressing the said observation.

We hope that your previous experience will not be a hindrance in visiting our property again as we want to show you the growth that we had base on your judgment during your stay.

Thank you for this message.

Al's Laemson is a great choice for Koh Samui, and like anything has a few shortfalls also.

The resort is a great layout, we were in a standalone bungalo close to the pool, and resturant.

The room was very nice, with both and indoor shower/bath and and open air shower. There was also everything else you would expect for a nice hotel.

The resturant was on off season, but still made a great effort with drinks and food, and the wet bar at the pool was a good spot to be when the sun set.

The hotel organised cars, transfers and ferrys really eaislly.

The only shortfall of the hotel is that there is a real Internet problem.

The rooms have no Internet coverage, and this is a real issue as you will always need to be near the pool, resturant or at the front desk to get Internet. This is a real hurdle if you want to both stay in touch with work, and spend time with the people you travel with.

Alongside this, is the fact that you must go to the front desk to get your daily allowance of internet, and sign off on this, although the daily amounts vary greatly. This is not acceptable for this level of hotel.

Otherwise everything was great.

We welcome and appreciate your positive and negative observation. The resort has a secluded like a paradise area as we appreciate your quotation for a good ambiance of the resort.

The internet issue for its unstable and unaccessible in some outlet of the hotel is the subject now that we are addressing it. We are aware that internet is part of the travelers companion and we see the importance of this.

We hope that you can visit us again in your next holiday trip.

Thank you.

The style of the resort is really nice, but the room service is not as good as it could be. The best thing about staying here is how the waiter Lee was really polite and took care of our every vegetarian meal that made us always came back to the restaurant to have the nice and quiet dinner by the beach. Most people went to the city centre, but we prefer to stay at a place where we can enjoy the real nice local food and feel the beautiful sea breeze. Honestly we tried to have our food at the other restaurant nearby, but we both felt the food was lacking the attention and love. So we went back to our own restaurant at the resort, in the 6 nights we had all the thai curry, Pad Thai, Spicy soup and wine etc.. all the food modified to vegetarian but we felt every flavour of the way Thai food supposed to be.
