Lamai Buri Resort is a good hotel on Koh Samui on Lamai Beach

The hotel is located in the southern part of Lamai, that isalmost at the very end of the beach, if you go from the direction of Chaweng. It is quite good, which can be considered for rest, if at the time of booking the price suits and there will be nothing better. It is not on the first line, but it takes no more than 10 minutes to go to the seashore, in this part the area is already quite narrow. Only better take the Deluxe, and not the Standard, like me.

Price and reservation

In Sea Sun Bungalow

I had the cheapest room - Standard for 1530baht (or 1,800 baht with breakfast). In the reviews, it was recommended to take the Deluxe (it cost 1800/2070 baht with and without breakfast), because it has a balcony. I did not, I thought that by and large the only difference is in the balcony and the view from the window, but in vain. During the settlement gave a compliment - juice.

Be sure (and I insist) check availabilitydiscounts or special offers on the excellent Roomguru service. It will quickly and simply show you discounts in all existing reservation systems. In Asia, for example, there are lots of offers on Agoda.com that are much more interesting than on exactly the same hotels on Booking.com.

For example, here is a direct link to the hotel:Lamai Buri Resort

.

Out of season, the price of rooms drops to about1000/1300 baht, respectively, standard / deluxe. But it is better to look at the site, for specific dates, how much it costs. There are still houses, but they are more expensive than rooms, and it seems to me older.

Yes, very close, but closer to the beach is Aloha Resort, which is popular with our compatriots.

. He has a slightly worse rating, but the firstline, it can also be considered in this area of ​​Lamai. Checkout is at 12 (on Bucking it is written that at 12:30), but I left somewhere at 12:50, when they came and said it was time.

Interior

Rating 8.2 and 3 stars. Probably, somewhere it is, although I would put a lower rating. I liked the hotel much less than Lamai Coconut Beach Resort (it is also 3 stars), at a comparable cost. Here, and further from the sea, and the rooms are simpler, and everything is somehow older. But in general, normal and most importantly clean. And so, after all, Lamai Buri is cheaper, especially if you don’t take it during the peak season, a very good offer will work out for 1000 baht.

The room has a new air conditioner, oldTV, fridge, safe bolted to the wall, a couple of umbrellas, regular towels and beach. But for some reason they did not give small hand towels. A standard pair of free bottles of water. The bathroom is simple, without a bath. Soap supplies are present. There is a clothes hanger.

Electricity is turned off when leaving the room, butthe outlet of the refrigerator just remains to work, that's a plus. By the way, maybe other outlets too, I did not check. I liked that with the direction of the vertical blades towards the wall, the air conditioner was not blowing on the bed, as is often the case.

Territory and breakfast

My breakfast was included in the room rate. It runs from 6:30 to 10 in the morning. Quite modest, you can safely book a room without it, lose a little. However, the hotel is located near the main ring road and you will have to go 5-10 minutes to the nearest cafe. In principle, no one bothers to combine breakfast with a trip to the beach, just on the way there will be, but about the beach below.

So, that gave. Coffee, tea and "chemozy" juices. Muesli 2 species, with milk. Toast with jam and butter. Three fruits (pineapple, papaya and watermelon) and the same modest salad set. Only 2 dishes of hot dishes are offered, besides an omelet: one day there was fried rice with eggs and vegetables in batter, the other - fried noodles with egg and potato cutlets.

There are always sausages and bacon. Everything. Do not really care. I would also like to note that several people came 10 minutes after the end of breakfast and they still got it. Immediately I remember Cyana Beach Resortwhere I came 5 minutes later and they didn’t give me anything at all, barely interrogated the coffee, misers.

The hotel area is small - the hotel building, restaurant and swimming pool. Pool opening hours from 8:30 to 20:00. In general, well-groomed and beautiful.

The hotel is located near the ring road, the one on which the main traffic. And just the standards go out there windows. Therefore, having lived a little, I realized that it was better to take a deluxe.

And the balcony is good, and the windows look aside.sea ​​/ pool, not the road. If you have a sensitive dream and you hear all the noises, then you definitely should not take the standard. And in the reviews, it is deluxe that is advised to take, it looks like the numbers themselves are better.

How to reach the beach

The beach is 10 minutes walk. We need to go down from the hotel, and go on the beach scourge (road along the sea) to the left in the direction of Chaweng. There almost immediately to the left in the direction of travel will be 7-11, after passing 10 meters from it, you will see to the right a massage parlor and a nondescript building resembling a cafe, and there will be a footpath next to it (just a path) to the beach.

You can also try to go through the nearest resort, occupying the first line. But, for example, in Aloha Resort There is a sign that you can not pass by strangers.

Another option almost get to beach road andturn right on the descent to the cafe Baobab and No stress (there is a sign on the road), although there will be another small descent and ascent. There you can order something from drinks or eat a full meal, for which you can get a free sunbed and access to Wifi.

So many do and not only from the hotel Lamai Buri, in the parking lot of these two resto bikes and cars are always there. Baobab is open until 6:30 pm and closes with darkness, Know Stress until 9pm.

By the way, if you suddenly want not Thai food, butSomething from the category of raw food and superfood, then on the way down to the beach road there is a cafe Wild Tribe. I used to buy Coconut Mama, a super-cool ice cream, which is not cheap (80 baht per ball), but I know the manufacturer without any additives. But this is for special connoisseurs, so you can buy ice cream at 7-eleven.

On the map

To the nearest 7-eleven walk 5 minutes, as much as massages and cafes. It takes you 10-15 minutes to the center of the Lamai, 10 minutes to the Macro supermarket. Everything is close by.

Life hacking 1 - how to buy a good insurance

Choosing insurance is now unrealistically difficult, so to help all travelers, I compile a rating. To do this, I constantly monitor forums, study insurance contracts and use insurance by myself.

Life hacking 2 - how to find a hotel 20% cheaper

First, choose a hotel on Booking. They have a good offer base, but the prices are NOT the best! The same hotel can often be found 20% cheaper in other systems through the RoomGuru service.
