Blue Lagoon Hotel
Ranked #65 of 104 Hotels in Chaweng
Reviewed January 15, 2014

We booked originally for on night in Blue Lagoon which has now extended to 3 mainly due to the staff. I'm yet to see a member of staff without a smile on their face. Upon arrival there was a notice board welcoming everybody personally. (Welcome mr rowe) which in itself is a nice touch. Checking in was a delight the gentleman seemed genuinely interested in our reason for staying and where we were from. Then the housekeeping manager personally showed us to our room and showed us where everything was. The pool is really clean and tidy, you even get breakfast on the beachfront. Definitely will be staying here again.

Stayed this hotel about 3 weeks, over christmas and new years eve and its very good and beautiful place. Stayed also in villa, which was next to pool. Staff are helpful and very kind people. Cleaners are doing their perfect job everywhere and everyday. Kantara restaurant, nothing bad to say. Beautiful place to have breakfast.
Recommend.

We stayed here for 12 fabulous nights, perfect location right on beach, short walk into the centre of town. Food in hotel was great had breakfast every morning and ate in restaurant a few times and had excellent meal. Room was good only down side i would say is the toilets need upgraded.
All in all great value hotel with excellent staff. I will definitely stay at this hotel again.

We had a great stay at the Blue Lagoon Hotel.
Upon arrival, staff was sweet and very welcoming. Our room had a nice view on the pool area and was perfectly clean. Breakfast was the best we had during our whole trip in Thailand, with a varied offer and and all-style eggs cooked live. The view on the sea from the restaurant made it even better.

The hotel is located only a few meters away from buzzing Chaweng, while still being very quiet. All our requests were perfectly taken care of and advice given by the front desk was very useful to find the best local restaurants, bars, tailor and motobike rental shop.

We would recommend this hotel to anyone willing to take advantage of everything Chaweng has to offer whle still being able to completly relax in peace by the pool or on the hotel beach.

Thanks to the Blue Lagoon team for making this stay a memorable one!

Having spent over £1500 for 3 rooms (2 bungalow rooms and 1 sea view villa) booked via Agoda i was expecting a 4* hotel with good customer service and nice rooms.

Far from it unfortunately, the bungalow rooms are dated and have old furnishings, the sea view villa is via the swimming pool which is navigated via a small very poorly lit path. In the day this is not an issue, at night it is a nightmare! i am not sure why the management do not light the paths up better but any one returning after 6pm will have issues wondering around the pool to find your villa.

The Villa its self was ok, the rear door onto the beach is locked with a make shift lock which would take all of 30 seconds to break into from the outside. The air condition did not work and the roof leaked in the rain!

When advised of the issues the staff are not interested and every request was a chore for them, the key cards repeatedly didnt work. We were offered to move to a lesser room as the AC was broken but at 1/2 the price and nothing offered in the way of an apology it was pointless.

Dispite checking myself and my Thai wife in one of the staff had the audacity to ask for her ID when we came back on the first night as though i was bringing a bar girl back to the hotel. Very insulting to say the least.

All in all there are much better selection of hotels on the island and the Blue Lagoon is one to avoid unless you like poor service and an overpriced hotel

My team and I recently stayed at the Blue Lagoon, however, despite staying at the bungalows which were across the road (Because we wanted the cheapest price) our stay was excellent. We were actually working at the resort next door which was 3 times or more the price, but for comfort and surroundings the blue Lagoon equaled or was better than next door.
Overall, good quality, great breakfast, nice and quiet and if we had only realized earlier, the cost of evening meals was equal or cheaper to most places in the busy part of the town.

Room Tip: We found the bungalows to be a little old and run down and our aircon wasn't the best, and if yo...

I recently booked for 9 days at the Blue Lagoon and ended up staying 21 days. I have stayed on Samui previously and in several other hotels in other parts of Thailand. I was very impressed with this hotel.

Location
On Koh Samui location is essential. If you want to enjoy the nightlife and be right in the thick of it, noise and all, then choose the Ark Hotel/Party bar. If you want to be able to have the option of enjoying the nightlife yet sleeping and swimming in a quiet location, then the Blue Lagoon is ideal. The Blue Lagoon is ideal for families too.

The hotel is situated within walking distance of downtown (downtown being one road with loud and lively bars, shows, and restaurants). It is however situated on an almost white sandy beach gently sheltered by two small islands. The result is that the water is smooth and quite shallow. I walked out into the ocean a few hundred feet and it was no more than 1-1.5 metres deep -- ideal for swimming and playing. Water sports rentals are available just a short walk down the beach.

The hotel maintains many chairs on the beach to enjoy the view and enjoy the sun or shade. Just along from the chairs is a local fresh fruit seller and it’s worth ordering a pineapple for Bht100 just to watch how he cuts it.

The Blue Lagoon hotel is nestled between two hotels that charge far higher prices and having spoken to someone who stayed at the Amari, he described that as a little newer and three times the price.

On a practical side, the hotel is close to other restaurants and shops. Taxis and locals buses are available right outside the hotel and the front desk staff will guide you on what you should be paying or you may pay too much.

The hotel is less than 10 minutes from the airport and they offer a shuttle both ways.

Food
The Kantara Restaurant is lovely and the food very well prepared. The location of the restaurant is right next to the beach and you have a choice of eating inside or outside or just taking your plate and eating on the sand. At night, tables are set out on the beach and you can enjoy your meal while wiggling your toes in the sand. The breakfast offered with most rooms is a full western breakfast with Asian options. The options change daily and after 21 days at the hotel, I wasn’t bored with the food.

Pool
This hotel probably has the largest pool along the beach. We walked along the beach and checked out several pools in other hotels. Some were tiny. The Blue Lagoon’s pool is gorgeous. There’s also a Jacuzzi and a children’s area. It isn’t a very deep pool except in the deep end (up to 1.8 M), so it’s ideal for children. There were plenty of chairs around the pool and umbrellas for shade all around.

The pool bar was very convenient but unlike some hotels, the staff did not walk around pushing drinks all day. The bar is part of the Kantara Restaurant and you could order a meal, sit by a table next to the pool or, as I did, eat a meal right on your pool lounger. It was very nice having options.

Room
The room was spotless. It wasn’t up to Western standards if you’re looking for 5-star rooms, however, it was clean. The furniture is quite new but locally made and it has a “stressed” look and not the high gloss finish we tend to see in the west. There was plenty of storage too. We had an older TV but I noticed that they were in the process of installing flat screen TVs in some rooms.

The air conditioner in the room was modern, quiet and efficient.

Bathroom
The sink and surround was black granite and nicely finished. There was an in-bath shower with a curtain and it worked very well. I liked the fact that two bottles of drinking water were provided daily and bathroom supplies topped up as needed. Another “like” was the bright lighting in the bathroom.

Beds
Like most of Asia, the beds were really very firm; however, I slept like a log and have no complaints. The linen was crisp, clean, white linen. The towels very large and were clean but both the linen and the towels showed signs of age. However, I was more concerned with cleanliness. Beach towels and a lovely big woven bag were provided for beach and pool use. All linens were replaced daily.

Service
One of the most pleasant things was to receive small portions of fresh fruit in the hotel room every day around 4:30 pm. I would eat lunch, swim, walk and then return to my room to relax on the balcony with a cup of coffee (provided in each room) and then a plate of fruit would arrive just as I was wondering what I could eat to take me through to supper. Perfect!

Staff
Not all the staff members spoke English, but it was amazing how well they understood hand gestures from all the guests whether they were speaking English, German, French or other languages. They were patient and only too willing to help however they could. If you really needed a conversation or a request that was beyond hand gestures, the front desk staff spoke fluent English.

I think that covers most things. The big question is would I stay here again? The answer is “definitely”.

Room Tip: Rooms are either beach side or garden rooms. The garden rooms/wing is located across the road from...
