“OK but not that friendly.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2009

This place was offered to me may a tout on the way to Koh Samui from Krabi. He offered me and some others a range of hotels, the Lamai Chalets was one of them. The price was 300B per night for a chalet. When we got to the chalets the owner didn’t seem too pleased that we had been given the rooms for 300B even though the place was not full by a long shot. The chalet itself was very clean, had a nice feel to it and was an excellent beach chalet. The resort leads onto an average beach (nothing special) but you can walk down it to better parts of the beach, however, the resort has a good pool instead. The location isn’t great; to get to the main part of Lamai you have to walk for about 15 mins down a busy main road which isn’t good at night. When we booked two more nights the owner gave the impression that he wasn’t pleased to have us at the price we paid, although, again the resort wasn’t busy at all (we counted 6 chalets that weren’t been used). Nice place but owner seems to prefer the place occupied with his mates and their thai wifes/girlfriends. Wouldn’t stay here again which is a shame as the thai staff were great fun.

Recently spent a few days in Koh Samai, the Lamai Chalet was in a great location, the staff friendly but beware of leaving anything of value in your rooms, be them locked or not, on our last night we went out for dinner, the staff were aware and were going to drop off our washed clothes. We were leaving the following morning so suitcases were already packed - no need to acess again until arrival back home in Australia. Much to my disappointment when looking for my camera to download the happy holiday shots I found my Camera, charger and many other items missing. I guess you have to be carefull everywhere, but thought things would be safe in our LOCKED room.

Lamai is definitely the beach to stay at if you are after a peaceful, quiet, relaxing holiday. The chalets are reasonably basic, but extremely good value for money and very clean. Lamai is the quieter beach, the week we stayed (March 08), we had the pool to ourselves & the beach would have had 10 people max. Lots of great restaurants just a very short walk down the beach & it is possible to hire scooters if you want to explore the Island further.
