“Don't use the laundry”
Reviewed 30 September 2012

Utopia laundry totally ruined 4 of my shirts with stains through them. I took them back and they couldn't remove the stains and didn't even offer anything for their mistake.

These were original shirts not Thailand copies so was a costly error to me due to their incompetence.

Don't use their laundry service under any circumstance. Their are plenty of other options in the immediate area.

Stayed here for 1 night with my partner. Lovely place right in the centre of Lamai and yet so peaceful. Free parking, well-kept grounds and greenery. Restaurant food was really good, particularly the Thai dishes. Lived on Koh Phangan for 5 months now and never have I seen such a nice beach! White sand, plenty of sunbeds and the water is deep so you don't have to wade out in the shallows for 100m like most of the beaches here! No pool but the beach really makes up for that. One little thing, there were a few spider webs around the room which I would prefer to be dusted up but as we were only staying for 1 night I wasn't too bothered. Not a 4/5 star place like most of the other resorts on the island but great for those who like to keep to a budget. + they have english channels on the TVs! shame I didn't stay here during the Olympics! Great place, will definitely stay again!

We stayed at the Utopia two years ago and were delighted to return last month. Still the same friendly staff, some of them even recognised us!! Excellent value for money in fact it was cheaper than two years ago and right on the beach what more could you ask for.

Has been 15 years since we last stayed at Utopia but it was time to return after a major birthday. Our bungalow, although basic was ideal for our needs right on the beach and central for Lamai's nightlife. The holiday was made all the more perfect by the friendly staff who really looked after us and made us feel most welcome.
There are 5 star resorts on Koh Samui but Utopia offers a reasonably priced alternative with an extremely relaxed friendly atmosphere. Can't wait to return.

After 4 weeks Thailand, I ended my trip at Lamai in Utopia. To be honest, this accomodation is average. Not good, not bad, just average. The bungalows a build in pairs or tripples and therefore different. Mine was basic and old, but clean, with AC and TV, but who needs TV in paradise? The location is good, strait on the beach and fairly quiet, but in walking distance of shops and eateries. No Pool, but a clean beach with free sunbeds. The garden around de bungalows is tropical, full of flowers and absolutely beautifull.
The management at checking in (streetside) wasn't very friendly, but the staff at the restaurant (Beachside) was wonderfull. It was a real pleasure, having breakfast viewing the beach and sea. All and all I stayed at better places for less, but it all depends on wat you're used to. Lamai is (a bitt) more expensive and more touristic compared to other beach resorts in the southern islands (Samui, Phangan and Tao), but still is a nice place to spend some days. Just make sure this isn't the only place you stay in.

each year we spend a few days in this old place in samui, now the manager of bungalows have changed and it s not so interesting, breackfast is not included now and people at reception are not not so friendly, but in the beach area the other manager is still friendly and the cook is excellent for thai typical plates

it s still a good deal in samui cause all the prices are increasing each year

you can stay here for a bungallow along the beautiful beach of lamai for 1500 bahts
