The place on itself is run down. The rooms have no privacy. In our case the AC was not working and the woman promised us that it will be fixed in the noon. When we came back from lunch she was saying that the air conditioning is fixed and we have to wait an hour for a room to get...

Bad experience I had to find an other place...

it is easy to be fooled that this is a different place as named to the other reviews for "Aree Bungalow" on tripadvisor but they are one and the same place. I must say that my trip to Thailand will be remembered for the sullen sour attitude of the German owner Helmut. It seems that in reading these reviews i...

I can honestly say that my room at Aree was one of the most overpriced and awful rooms I've ever stayed at in Lamai. i booked in advance and got an 'interior' room, with no sea view and one window - facing the building. It was dark, small, and at 1000B a night, well overpriced! Helmut, the German owner was...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Aree Beach Resort is situated at the northern part of the Lamai Beach.It is far away from the noise of the village center, but close enough to discover the pulsating life Lamais on foot. From the terraces of the bungalows and villas one is with few steps in the blue water. No bungalow has a distance more than 20 m from the beach. ... more   less
