“one of the best..”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2013

We stayed here for 10 days in September.. Were greeted by very friendly receptionists who throughout our stay had no problem with helping us book things such as jeeps to explore the island. The photos online dont do the rooms justice, probably one of the best rooms we have stayed in, in 2 months of travelling SE Asia, we went for a fan room and it was fine, sometimes even cool without the fan on, amazing value for money! The guy with the Dog (Tarzan) is really funny, and would always come and chat to us whenever he saw us! Swing Bar 2 seconds walk, free sun lounger through the days and fire shows regularly on evenings. About a 4 minute walk from everything in Lamai, really cool place.

after a couple of dodgy other hotels we transferred to Rich Resort. finally a good stay. this place is in a lovely location and Lamai Beach is beautiful. excellent rooms for a very good price. kind and very helpful staff in both the hotel and restaurant. this place definitely brightened our vacation after a couple of crappy previous hotels.

Great hotel, we paid 470 baht a night and stayed 4 nights. The room was very clean and big. Location is perfect, 1 minute from beach and 5 mins from Lamai centre. Staff friendly, very good wifi. Only annoying thing is you must leave sign on door in order for room to be cleaned they don't do it unless you do. We forgot and so had a few ants in the bathroom.

I just spend 5 days at Rich Resort. Found this place on internet...and i don't regret it at all!
I was a bit unsure about staying on Lamai beach as it can be very busy and noisy,
In fact Rich resort has the perfect location. 5 min away from the main street, shops bars and restaurant, once you go back there you feel like on another planet!
Right on the beach, very quiet. The staff is very friendly....Beach bar, nice food with fair prices..free sunbed, free wifi and amazing fire shows at night......what else!!
The best place I have been in Samui so far and i will definitively recommend it to me friends.

The only thing, If I can, as I work in scuba diving industry and due to all the international campaign about Sharks conservation as they become an endangered species..does it sound really good to advertise shark steaks in your restaurant ?

Thanks to Allan for his warm welcome and his energy!

Stayed originally for 2 nights and extended for a further night. The room was basic, clean mostly, other than the ants and cockroach in the bathroom. In room safe was a great help! Wifi is free, and good when it works, had a whole evening where it did not however! The location is perfect literally 30 seconds and you are in the sea! The swing bar opposite is pretty cool, although dead at this time of year. Sat there a couple of evenings and no more than 6 other people- infact more staff than customers bizarrely!
If you are a backpacker then this is definitely a great place to stay at the current prices, just under £10 a night for a fan room.
Lamai beach is really nice, sand a little rough, but nice and chilled which is perfect!

A cut above the rest of the budget accommodation we came across while on our travels. If it's location you're after the hotel and Swing Bar sit perched directly on the beach and just a couple minute walk from the local shops. Free Internet and friendly staff and clean rooms. I couldnt have asked for anything more att his price. I would definitely go back.

Room Tip: choose a room closest to the office/bar side of the hotel if you would like better wifi connection

This hotel is in a perfect location right near the beach and you can walk to the main road of the Lamai town. The prices are great for the rooms you get. Budget prices but good rooms. There is free WiFi everywhere in the place, in the rooms, restaurant and even on the beach where you can relax on the sunloungers. If you have a chance check out the fire shows on the beach at night. They are extremely good. Great visit will be back again.
