Dive into the waves at these beach properties
The service especially from reception was brilliant. The room was exceptionally cean and the facilities were really good
We loved the location and the layout of the resort. It was so cliae to everything and we loved the beach pool being altogether. Would have benefited from more information in our room. Like a booklet of services offered, times for breakfast, pool etc and some excursion info. Thus was sadly lacking. ...
Beautiful location next to the beach. Rooms are a bit run down.
One of the top properties in the Lamai Beach Area if not the best. Outstanding accommodation and grounds with a Bar overlooking the Beach with outstanding views across the bay. Always sufficient sunbeds, whether near the pool or on the beach and an outstanding buffet breakfast with great options ...
Surprise was that the room was in a bungalow that was only ours. Not a hotel room. It was pleasant, and very nice, spacious and clean. Breakfast was excellent, the kitchen is very good also for dinners! Chaweng is a busy party place but this hotel is quiet that we have appreciated with my partner. ...
I was very glad I chose this hotel. Very polite and attentive staff, a beautiful room and clean swimming pools. Tasty breakfast. A sandy beach (Silver Beach) is 5 minutes away on a scooter or a hotel van for 50 B. I liked it there.
Beautiful beach. great pool parties. staff is very friendly.
Great resort, great location close to all restaurants and bars, shopping at the Fisherman village. Room was ok, should have booked a bungalow as the view was disappointing. Breakfast as expected and good. Only strange thing - staff asked everyone else if all was ok, but not us, ever! Not to worry ...
The hotel was beautiful, breakfast was amazing with a huge selection of quality fresh produce that had something to suit all of our group - even the picky ones! Staff were attentive and super friendly particularly Pen and Kwan who always had a smile and were happy to offer advice around where to ...
Thailand’s Koh Samui is your typical tropical paradise island, and its golden beaches are set against an emerald backdrop of forest. Samui’s attractions in recent years have evolved into a great range of activities and nightlife venues, but its most alluring draw is still the wonderful beaches.
The bulk of Samui’s 500-plus hotels and resorts are within close proximity to beaches. The greatest concentration of Koh Samui beach hotels is on the northeast shoreline. There is a large selection of hotels available from Choeng Mon down past Chaweng and Lamai.
In Chaweng, beach hotels include The Library and the four-star Samui Paradise Chaweng Beach Resort. The Library is an award-winning boutique hotel where a highlight is breakfast served to guests while they laze on soft beach mattresses. It is also a popular venue for weddings.
In Lamai, there are plenty of other excellent choices of hotels and resorts near the beach. The Banyan Tree Samui is built on a series of hill-terraces above the bay. Five-star opulence comes with quintessential Thai architecture and includes a spa, the highly-acclaimed Edge Restaurant, a grand ballroom, and a business centre.
The Rich Resort Beachside Hotel is a budget-friendly Lamai option and the location of the noted Swing Bar Restaurant. Another inexpensive option on the exclusive Choeng Mon peninsula is the Baiyoke Seacoast Resort. The peninsula boasts a collection of luxury villas and chalet complexes including the Samujana Seven Bedroom Pool Villa.
With its stunning beaches, the east coast was the traditional location for most of the hotels and old-style, bamboo-bungalow complexes. In the 21st century, hotels on beaches such as Bophut, Maenam, Hua Thanon, and Taling Ngam have increased choices for Samui vacationers.
The Zazen Boutique Resort is a popular spot in Bophut and boasts a great spa facility. The Free House Bungalow is just along the beach and is an excellent choice for those with limited funds. The Mantra Resort at Maenam is a five-star premises. At Taling Ngam, the Conrad Residences is a firm favourite with discerning visitors.
