Myself and 3 friends stayed at Rich Resort for 3 nights, We had 2 rooms, both with one double and one single bed. The rooms were clean, spacious and both had an en-suite. There were complimentary towels and water when we arrived, and the option to have the room cleaned each morning if required. There were 2 fans in each room, but no air-con, this was fine, but would have been nicer with A/C!
The staff were friendly and helped us when we needed it; we hired a jeep for the day for 800 Bhat and the hotel staff organised it all for us.
The location is good, Lamai is a nice beach, and there are some good restaurants, shops and sights nearby. One downside is its distance from Chaweng beach (best place for nightlife), it was a good 20 minute taxi ride, although this did only cost 400-500 Bhat
There is a bar/restaurant opposite called Swing Bar, the food there is great, both English and Thai, and the drinks are very reasonably priced. There is a fire show each night on the beach which is good fun, the guys even let us have a go when it was quiet.
If you want to be right in the middle of the nightlife, this might not be the place for you, but if you want to be close, and have your own space, this place is definitely worth staying at!
