Sallamai Resort
Ranked #1 of 51 Hotels in Lamai Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 August 2014

This small resort is just lovely. There is a real personal touch from the moment you check in, and the owners go above and beyond to ensure you have an enjoyable stay. It's very easy to hire motorbikes right out the front, and we were advised by those at Sallamai of the best backroads to travel on and had a little adventure in the jungle. Definitely recommend this place - being slightly away from the hustle and bustle of the main street of Lamai was actually a plus.

Thank you very much Lauren for your heart-warming comment we will convey to our team.
There are still plenty of non battered paths in Samui eagerly awaiting your next visit....as much as we do.
Cheers

Thoroughly enjoyed our time at Sallamai. The rooms themselves were nice, especially the one with the ocean view, and the jacuzzi. :)
The location also suited us quite well, as its a little up the hill and to the north of Lamai beach proper. So we had plenty of quiet up there. Only a short stroll to get into the action also.
But the best thing about Sallamai would have to be the owners.
Bruno and Isobel were absolutely lovely, very friendly and very helpful. Helped us with all kinds of tickets and transfers and knew the answers to all of our questions.
Highly recommended.

We stayed there for few days and came back for more on our return trip from Koh Tao. The owners are warm and welcoming, the place is clean, quiet and comfortable. We had a lovely time and would recommend it to anyone looking for a good, simple and comfortable place with all the conveniences needed, good AC, mini fridge, nice pool, great balcony giving on zen looking interior court, comfortable king bed.

Room Tip: ask for corner room

My boyfriend and I stayed in this hotel in June. We were welcomed into the hotel by the owners. They know a lot about Koh Samui and are more than willing to tell you all about the great places on the island. We rented a scooter via them and toured the Island with a lot of tips.
The room was perfect with a jacuzzi outside, both very clean. The pool is clean and great.
The breakfast is delicious; toast with eggs, marmalade, coffee or tea and juice.
The people that work in Sallamai Resort are really friendly and nice.
Hopefully we will be returning to Thailand and to Sallamai.

Thanks for the great time!

We went to this beautiful place 5 days with my wife (Chinese) and 2 of our Chinese friends. It is a peaceful place where the owners are totally dedicated to their guests. You feel like part of their family. We had the best rooms with sauna. The room is quite good and peaceful. We enjoyed the breakfast and the atmosphere. Bruno gave us very good advices for visiting around. We rent a motorbike as we like to visit the seaside on the other part of the Koh Samui. It is a nice and romantic place for couple. I will recommend it for sure.

We stayed in Sallamai from April 30 to May 6, 2014. The resort is very calm and cosy. The ambiance is close to a bed and breakfast and was appropriate for my 3 children, my wife and myself.
Clean rooms and lovely owners. Services was great and breakfast is simple but outstanding. Best omelette I had in my life.
