Lamoon Lamai House
Ranked #14 of 45 Lamai Beach B&B and Inns
Reviewed 19 January 2014

We stayed at Lamoon Lamai for 4 nights and were extremely happy. The rooms are around £27 per night, including a safe in the room. The owner and staff are really nice and helpful, and a laundry service is also available at a great price! The rooms are exactly how they look on the website and are cleaned everyday except Sundays. The only downside is the the step into the shower isn't very high, meaning the bathroom can get a bit flooded at times but we didn't really find this a problem. The beach is directly opposite and you can walk through the hotels to get there. As the hotel is on a main road, it can be quite noisy as there are a couple of bars across the road. Overall we had a great stay and would definitely go back!

I stayed 4 nights over New Years in a Superior room overlooking the main road. The room was nice size and comfortable bed, good a/c, large sliding glass door that insulated the street noise quite well, nice deck with chairs. Bathroom is large with separate tub but hot water was lacking, only had one hot shower out of four but the cold was not too cold. WiFi was not very strong, location is 15 minutes walk from the center but many good restaurants around and a 7/11 next door for cold drinks, beach is fairly close. Owners are friendly. Overall a good stay.

Stayed in Bungalow , Bungalow spacious and good value . If you want luxury , probably not the place for you and WiFi was fairly poor . The couple that run the resort are great , very friendly and will do anything to help you . Would definately stay again

We stayed here for 2 nights in a superior room. Ac was great and there was pretty good wifi.

Great value, friendly staff, nice big and comfortable bed as well as nice new floor tiles. The shower was not separated from the toilet but the bathroom was clean.

Only problem was the noise at night coming from the bars across the road. The music was pumping well into the wee hours and it wasn't even high season yet!

The hotel rooms were very clean, with a flushing toilet and hot water, fan, fridge and television. The bed was comfortable. The rooms were off the main road, which made them quiet at night. The staff does their job of checking you in and out, but nothing more. Overall, it is a great place for people on a budget.

I stayed three nights at Lamoon Lamai in a fan bungalow. Admittedly it's good value for money for travelers on a budget, but I sometimes wondered if I should have spent that bit more - hence the 'average' review, which doesn't mean bad, it just means average!

When I checked in the staff were unfriendly and made no attempt to go out of their way, hence as it's not necessary to walk through the office to and from your room I didn't see any staff for the remainder of my stay - until I checked out.

The room was very big with a very big bed but absolutely roasting hot. Of course I'd expect this in the hot season but was disappointed to find the fan mounted on the wall, which wasn't nearly as effective at keeping the room cool as a ceiling fan. I also noted an air con unit in the room but with no remote control, so they clearly stick to delivering what you pay for - i.e. fan only, which is fair enough. Unfortunately the air con unit had a bright blinking light on it that lit up the room at night!

Lamoon Lamai is in a good location, just a minute's walk from the beach through a hotel resort opposite. It's a nice beach but I recommend making the walk up the far end (turn left on the beach), it's much quieter and with nice places to eat - it feels a lot less touristy.

If this is your budget I'm sure you could do a lot worse.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for five days over New Years and loved it. The bungalows were conveniently tucked away from the busy street but close to the beach and all the restaurants of Lamai. Our rooms were well kept everyday and the manager was very friendly and informative. Every time we needed help regarding a taxi or a local tour, he was more than helpful. During our time in Thailand, we stayed at some more upscale places. This was supposed to be our "budget" hotel we planned to stay at to save a little money. That being said, we actually enjoyed this place more than the others because we didn't feel ripped off when we left and the people were much more friendly than any of the other places. The rooms were clean, have aircon, and also a safe is provided if you are worried about your valuables. If I come back to Koh Samui, I am definitely staying here again.

Room Tip: Bungalows were nice.
