We went to Koh Samui with our family and four friends. After researching extensively on trip advisor site I was lucky enough to discover this truly amazing gem of o hotel in the Gulf of Siam. Lakeside Residence is located in the very heart of Chaweng Beach. It is surrounded by many restaurants and nightlife, just across from the beach road and only one minute's walk to the entertainment and shopping district.
We traveled to from Bangkok to Koh Samui on train plus ferry route. After our long journey we were all delighted to find that our rooms were immaculately decorated in typically ethnic Thai scheme. There were beautiful Thai runners thrown on the dark wood beds, which were the ultimate in comfort. The air conditioning was blissfully cool. The adjoining bathrooms were sparklingly clean and had heaps of towels, shampoo and soap dispensers, bathtubs and a balcony to dry the swimsuits. Two of our rooms had the wonderful view of the lake. We could see people bungee jumping all through the day.
We got the hotel rooms at amazingly low rates for the peak season. Infact, we were lucky enough to get four star luxury at budget rates. The hotel’s non- English speaking housekeeping staff was very efficient and friendly. They kept giving extra towels and conditioners for the kids. The rooms had a 21inches flat screen TV satellite with 16 channels. My husband was very pleased to find the In-room safe deposit box.
My three daughters were overjoyed to find McDonalds and The Pizza Factory right next door. They soon discovered a massage parlor nearby that did massages and hair braiding at unbelievably low rates. The complimentary breakfast was served in a tiny little eatery in the hotel was substantial. There was a choice of continental and Thai main courses. The lady chef was even kind enough to give me a cooking class, when I complimented her on her glorious morning glory leaves dish.
The only disappointing feature about our stay was that there was a disco nearby which kept blaring loud music till sunrise. We later discovered that this seemed to be the norm for the whole island. Otherwise we had the most wonderful time in this tiny but perfect little hotel.
