“The longer you stay, the nicer it is”
Reviewed 15 September 2013

Being in this hotel two times in 2012, I encountered that the staff was much more friendly and open to the customers the second time (december 2012). Small, but really clean rooms with everything you can expect for the price. Nice location, on the beach, and only a minutes walk to the center of Lamai beach. In the evening very quiet (nobody at the bar, only few people in the restaurant). i think this is because it is so close to the (night)life of Lamai. And yes, a hotel is more expensive to eat then a restaurant outside, and when these restaurants are only a short walk away ...
Enjoyed very much the bar on the beach: they not come to serve you, but thesetwo ladies are so friendly, and a beer costs less if you go to get it there.

Room Tip: depending the amount you want to spend, but the villas near the pool are terrific

Great location to all the restaurants, bars and convenience stores - all within walking distance. Very basic accommodation. Didn't expect more for a 3 star hotel so wasn't disappointed at all. Front desk staff right up to the cleaning staff were very friendly and helpful. Was happy that they have a safe in the room and hair dryer in the bath. Beach and pool was very clean but do not expect a big swimming pool (it's more for dipping than swimming). Only 2 minus point - breakfast was the same every morning and the water flowing into the drain during shower was extremely slow that it caused a puddle in the shower area.

Room Tip: If you do not like noises from the nearby bars, get rooms on the south side.

We recently stayed here as a couple. Our initial feel was - very basic accommodation and we were very disappointed. We were in a standard room which was in need of a good makeover and if you had have given the door a good push you would have easily pushed it down!

We upgraded to a bungalow (or we would have checked out). This was so much better - still no frills, just the basics but the room was large and clean and comfortable. The location is great. The pool looks over the beach so you could sit by the pool and swim in either. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was average. It was (although in the heart of Lamai) quiet at night, as in we did not hear noises from the bars etc.

We wouldn't return there ourselves but would recommend it to people looking for a good location on Lamai Beach with just the basics.

We rented a scooter from directly opposite the resort and had no problems at all when we returned it 5 days later and had our laundry down just opposite the restaurant and it was quick and cheap.

Room Tip: Definitely spend the extra and book a bungalow

Amazing beach where u can swim in, just below the hotel's pool. Not in all beaches it's like this. Some have a lot of rocks and shallow water, but not in Lamai Wanta.
Staff is very nice and attentive.
Price is good.
Rooms are good with nice porch/balcony attached to every room.
Right off the main road with nightlife on it, and still it is very quiet here.
Very very recommended.

This is a great location right in the middle of Lamai Beach and a easy 2 minute walk to the main shopping/bar/dinning area. The beach is great for swimming on and nice and clean with not too many vendors. The hotel it self needs to invest in some more beach chairs. The Breakfast at the hotel was average, it was enough to fill a gap but a lack of depth meant that after a couple if days it got very boring, a larger selection of fruits would be a good inexpensive place to start. The accommodation was what you would expect for the price, however I have experienced better accommodation for same price at other Thai locations. If you can afford it the cottages would be the best accommodation option. The staff were very good (Poon) the egg cook in the morning making a effort to greet all dinners in there own language. The cleaning staff maintained the rooms in very good condition. If you are looking for a cheap, clean, hotel in a good location this is it, if you want a top class experience then find somewhere else. Personally I wouldn't return but this is probably more due to the fact that Koh Samui is getting overcrowded.

Stayed in Lamai Wanta for 4 days in mid August'13. The overall experience was fantastic. Like most reviewers say, the USP of the hotel is the location just at the Lamai beach. For those who are here just for leisure trip would find it quite a comfortable option. Forget stuffing towels/clothes for change or other items - all you need is to go to the pool side and enjoy the pool/beach with a drink or two which you can order from the restaurant just at the right place (next to pool).
The size of the pool can be a minor disappointment for those who prefer pool to sea. Also, the benches near the pool tend to get occupied by noon.
The rooms are decent. Nothing awesome about them but no disappointments there. The villa option might not be a fantastic option as none is actually facing the sea. Did not stay in the villa but I suppose there is not much of a huge difference between normal rooms and villa (other than the obvious differences).
The staff is quite friendly and supportive.
The restaurant is relatively quieter and has good menu. Prices are comparable to the other similar eating places.
There is an option of having Thai massages just next to the hotel which is again a big plus. Rates are comparable.
Overall, had a very nice time staying there and would surely recommend to others.

Room Tip: While going on a leisure holiday to a beach, just ensure that the hotel should be in a closest possi...

The Wanta hotel is located in front of Lamai beach (central zone), 5 minuted by foot to Lamai main street.

The hotel is composed by cottages in the garden. Each cottage is big, clean and confortable with a/c and a big bathroom.
The breakfast is international and very good.
The reastaurant is good (thai and international), located on the beach as well as the pool.
The pool is not big, but very nice and the are around 30/40 beach lounger for the guests.

The hotel zone is quiet and without street noise. The hotel is ideal for youngers, couples and family with children.

In the hotel you can buy the transfer service via minivan to airport (150 bath/person).

Lamai street is not very good: many restaurants and pubs in the area (but around 11 p.m. the are no more people), not very clean and narrow with smog.
