“Good Location & Value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2012

Stayed for 4 nights in a deluxe room for a reasonable rate. This hotel's pool & restaurant is directly on Lamai beach, which is Koh Samui's 2nd best beach strip after busy Chaweng Beach. The hotel is very close to all the markets & some attractions, & have good contacts for tours & taxi drivers. The hotel owner & staff are helpful & friendly. The restaurant food is good though you are able to get better & cheaper at the markets just down the road (of course, depending on your palate). There was no phone in the room & no room service is available, however the rooms are cleaned every day, the facilities in the room are good (even has a DVD player with DVD's available to borrow from the reception area), & best of all, air conditioning! I would recommend this place if you're looking for good location & value in Samui.

We stayed at Lamai Wanta for 5 days and enjoyed our stay at this hotel tremendously. The hotel is situated right on the beachfront. It has a pool (albeit it being smaller comparatively) facing the ocean and many deck chairs for relaxing. The room clean with hot shower. Air-cond works well and the bed is comfortable. They provide a DVD player and you can borrow DVDs from the front desk at no additional cost. What makes the stay most enjoyable are the staff. They are friendly and the service is 1st class. The manager, Chai is most helpful and he is excellent in anticipating your need and fulfilling your wishes. The buffet breakfast is substantial with plenty of fruits, salads, bread and the normal bacon, eggs (poach, scrambled, sunny side up etc..), beans, fried potatoes, sausages and best was the asian dishes which changes daily. My favourite was the massaman curry with rice. The town area is only 5 mins walk from the hotel where you can find many other restaurants serving italian, australian, Thai, seafood etc…And many shops for spending your money. Book a hotel car to the airport - comfortable and only at Baht500. Outside taxi the same price but may not be as comfortable.

If there is anything to complain, it would be as follows:
- preferred our room to be facing the sea. Since there are only 2-3 bungalows facing the seas and we booked only deluxe room so our room actually faced the garden. It is actually okay and as I said, it is not a complaint just a preference.

Room Tip: Ask for room on the ground floor and nearest to the pool.

My friend and I had been backpacking through the unbeaten paths of Thailand before plopping ourselves in this little gem of a hotel. I found a deal on Agoda, thanks to my Pop's recommendation of the hotel site, and we decided to book it- both never having stayed at a nice hotel before in our lives pretty much (especially on our own dollar). We expected a nice place, but were truly surprised upon our arrival.
This is one of the nicest hotels i have ever stayed at. And I mean nice in the sense that the staff is extremely friendly and accommodating, and welcoming to all their guests. We felt so at home at this place. Our room was clean and beautiful. Nice shower, comfortable bed, air conditioning, a porch, a garden surrounding our room!, included breakfast buffet (with actually good food...and yogurt with muesli!!). We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would totally go back if the offer arose. We were right on the beach too; laying at the pool we could taste the ocean breeze.
Stay here!

Room Tip: They are all magical

Our first stay in Samui was at another place in a hillside location and we used to come here for an afternoon Late (and wifi), the second year we decided to just stay there as the location was perfect and we ended up there everyday anyway.
For the money I think this place is the place to stay on Samui. Right on the beech, lovely simple rooms and nice staff.
One small thing for the owner to consider I loved the breakfasts when they were a la carte v's the buffett option you have now. Still a really good breakfast but not the amazing one it used to be.

Room Tip: I prefer the rooms on the top floor for their privacy but equally the ground floor ones are nice as...

Great value, friendly staff, clean rooms, superb location and wonderful restaurant. My family recently spent a week here and did not want to leave. We could lay around the pool, wander out onto the beautiful beach, get a massage on the beach, eat wonderful food at the hotel restaurant or saunter up into Lamai itself for some nightlife. A lovely buffet breakfast is included.

Despite its location in the heart of the beach, this hotel offers wonderful serenity in an extremely comfortable and well maintained facility. Service can only be complemented and the ever busy ground and cleaning staff must be applauded for their ever diligent activity. All staff are pleasant and friendly with a good grasp of english.

The rooms are very quiet and kept in good order. TV, Cable, Air Con, Wireless, Bed, small terrace and if your lucky you'll be met by one the guard dogs at night who will walk you back to your room and keep guard until the early hours. There are high walls all around the facility and privacy was never a concern, neither was security.

I can only say that I was very surprised given its location, but definately would say this is one of the best facilities on the beach and if your looking to book check booking.com for promotional prices. Absolute bargain for me.
