i booked with booking dot com and paid 1/2 before arriving. on arrival they just took the other 1/2 no drama about the price or any quibbles. its on a great stretch of beach sandwiched between 2 fancy hotels. im paying £17 a night for a basic villa. the Jasmine next door charges £55-£70 a night.the room is basic but not unpleasant. The A/C is very efficient. It is very quiet at night so no sleep issues. Room is very well cleaned every day- fresh towels--properly mopped out. the wi fi is a bit so so--only works in the restaurant but i am no computer genius . the garden is nicely maintained. Breakfast is served rather than buffet style but very tasty---banana pancakes & Honey are stand out choices. The staff are charming and kind. of course sometimes gets lost in translation but hey their english is way better than my Thai ( non existent). i would certainly visit again---this trip has been for 12 nights so it is a pretty comprehensive view of a delightful hotel

Room Tip: i stayed at 24 which was close to road but i never got disturbed at night.

If you are seeking a less traveled beach with less nightlife and noise than Chewang beach to the north of Lamai, this is a simple but very good option. the bungalows are not luxurious, but if you're coming here to stay in the room you are making a mistake anyway.... everything is clean and well maintained, the beach front is virtually right there, and the restaurant is very very good.
the only negative is cigarette smoke..... but that will vary of course based on who is there- I'm just used to better policies on that.

The reception:
- Not very good in english
- Sometimes not very helpful

The rooms:
- spacious bungalow (#7)
- loud air-con in the older bungalows
- fridge refiled with water
- cleaned properly each day!

The beach:
- the best spot on Lamai
- great sun beds (people actually come and pay for the same you get for free)
- clean water, but not clear (hard to get better on Koh Samui)

The restaurant:
- good enough breakfast (ask for muesli, yogurt, fruit, juice & tee/coffee if you want to be healthy)
- nice fresh juices
- there is plenty other places to eat for lunch or dinner
- friendly staff

Room Tip: Bungalow #7 is right in between the road and the beach. Dark wood bungalow with enough space.

The fact that the staff and owner took great care of me, the linens were constantly changed and room perpetually scoured without me having to ask, and the close proximity to the everything.

In all honesty, Utopia Resort is not the poshest of hotels, but the service was definitely 5 star. Every single time I left my room, and came back, my bed linens had been changed, fresh towels had replaced my used ones, all bathroom surfaces were scoured, shiny, and spot free, and paper products were constantly replenished, as well as bottled water. I know for a fact that I dragged in more sand than there was on the beach, yet there was never a speck of sand after my room had been made up. The owner is lovely, and took the time out of her day to speak to me, and many other guests, to make sure we were doing ok, and to ask if there was anything we needed. The location can't be beat! Utopia Resort is right on Lamai Beach, and is in the midst of all the local bars, massage spots, and restaurants. For the price, this resort truly wins my vote. It feels very much like being amongst family while staying there. I would stay there again.

Went back to an old favourite resort for this visit to Koh Samui. This resort hasn't changed a lot in the last twenty years, the bungalows and restaurant have been upgraded and the grounds maintained but the staff are still as friendly as ever - even remembering and welcoming us back.
Perfect little resort. I did find the restaurant a little expensive and preferred to eat elsewhere. There are quite a few deckchairs on the beach for guests use. I would consider staying there again. Some of the previous reviews seem to be negative but i was happy with my stay and the facilities. The laundry was a little expensive making you pay one price per piece regardless of whether it was underwear or jeans.
