Review of Bill Resort
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 25 Nov 2012
Very good place situated at the top of Lamai beach so, when you do decide to explore you're in an ideal location. Swimming pool was clean and well kept with a nice cool jacuzzi.

Staff friendly and helpful and rooms are well kept with good air conditioning. Make sure you bring anti mosquito spray as the bugs in that region are a lot worse!

Hi,just sepnt 12 nights a bill resort August 2012. This place is like a home away from home. We had a great family bungalow (connecting) room 122 & 123 located only metres from the pool and a few more metres to the lovely beach (best piece of beach along that stretch)
While we were there the owner BILL was there. I think it says a lot when the owner is hanging around and keeping an eye on things. All the staff were very helpful and a happy bunch, willing to please you from morning to night. If you are looking for a 5 star place this is not for you but in my eyes it is just the place that you can treat like home and feel comfortable. bill resort is in the quieter area of Lamai but only a short walk up the beach and through the vacant lot and your in the thick of it. There a plenty of restaurants along the beach to chose from and very reasonably priced.( Restaurant at Bill Resort is also reasonable and good). If you are booking here , the better positioned bunglows are near the pool and beach (otherwise, its a walk down to pool or beach and then back up a hill to your room) from what I saw , most of the rooms looked good and well kept, Mr Bill did say that over the coming months a few were being renovated. We hired a little suzuki jeep from the resort (A$24.00 a day all inclusive), it was well worth it as there were 3 of us and a trip into Chaweng for the 3 of us was about 400 baht one way . With the jeep we got to exlore the whole island at our own pace, stop wherever and whenever we liked. For the two weeks we spent $A45.00 on petrol and saved our legs plenty of k's and climbs up the hill to reception. We would definately stay at Bill Resort again.

Room tip: rooms near pool or beach are best location, otherwise you have a hill to negotiate.

This place was very quiet and greatly located. We could walk to the main town area along the beach and buy fruit at the market. It was also close the the grandmother/grandfather rocks. Very good rooms and great service. The staff offered umbrellas for getting around. Also the rooms are high up on a hill. so safer from tsunamis, just in case.

This hotel isn't bad. The bungalows are very cute, the restaurant and pool are very good, staff are extremely friendly and helpful, and its located right on Lamai Beach.

Only fault would be that it is quite far from the center of town.
But its would be a perfect place to stay to get away from the hustle and bustle of the "touristy" area.

We choose this hotel because it fitted our budget for new year holidays. We took the cheapest rooms in the standard building with A/C and fridge and had not expected too much from this place.

Each room had a terrace with a couple of chairs and table in front of the entrance door. Some rooms had twin beds, some were equipped with king-size beds. Our rooms were very small and dark, with poor lightning (it was not comfortable to be in the room during the rain outside).

The bathroom was actually a tiny room, very dark, with a toilet sink and small washsink. The shower was here as well, and you should stand on the floor while washing watching how the water streaming down to the hole in the floor. The hole was covered with a big flat stone and we realized why when at one night we saw the big red cockroach crowling out of it.
As far as we could saw other villas were more comfortable, some of them were after repair. So it's just a matter of price: if you prefer a more luxurious place to stay just pay 3-5 times more.

The breakfasts were very good however, fresh juices were great, and cocktails in the beachbar were excellent (try their Pina-Colada!). There were not too mich sunbeds, sometimes we could not find a free one on the beach and asked staff to bring extra that was done in 5-10 minutes.
The towels were brought every morning (you just needed to leave your used towels on the terrace to get clean ones in the morning). Also the drinking water in bottles was brought to our terrace every morning.

The location is nice, it's about 10 minutes walking distance from the center of Lamai. It's better to walk by the beach.
Generally our rest was good, but the next time I don't think I will choose the same room. Maybe another room/villa that is more expensive and comfortable.

Just got back from Koh Samui and about two weeks in Bill resort. We really liked the place. It was very basic and you gor what you payed fore. I really like the simlpe Thai style.
The resort could just like other have written do whith a brush up.
When we arrived and had spend a few very tired hours in our bungalow we fumde out that there was definately something wrong whit the plumbing. Smellt awful. But it was no problem to change to an other room. The reception staff was very nice and help us. I guess it wasnt news to them that there was a probem at the bungalow.
The breakfast was very basic. After some time you got very bored whit it. Not a lot to choose from and the same every day.
The food in restaurang was ok but quite expensive. We ate most times at the next door place, the black pearl. (read about it here on TA).
The beach at the hotel was absolutely super. Quiet, shaded in the afternoon and it got deep rather fast.
I can really recomend Billresort it you want a nice not too expesive resort on the beach.

Room tip: the resort is very hilly. Chooe a room by the beach, pool and restaurant if you dont like climbing hills. Or if you have a walking problem
