Lamai Coconut Beach Resort - one of the best hotels on Lamai Beach

From 5 hotels on Samui, where I lived, probably, LamaiCoconut Beach Resort is the best. For me, it has become value for money. I hope the hotel will not lower the bar and will continue to remain not only very well located, but also to update the rooms in time. And then you know how it is, while the hotel is new everything is fine, but then it gets old, but the owner is in no hurry to do the repair.

So while I can recommend this hotel with a clear conscience, I really liked it. Catch feedback and review.

Price and reservation

At Lamai Coconut Beach Resort

I took the room the cheapest Superior Garden View (Superior Garden View) for 2000 baht.

Honestly, I wanted overlooking the pool tothere was a nicer view from the window, it costs only 250 baht more, but it was no longer available, I booked the whole day Apparently the hotel is popular and it is better to do everything in advance.

But the rooms are in fact the same and the view of the garden will also come down. Immediately why, checkout is strictly at 12 and they start to call the number and remind with a small delay.

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 Coconut Beach Resort

There is also the option of accommodation in a bungalow, but Ihave already profited in them and wanted in a regular hotel room. But if you need a beachfront, then this is just a bungalow, however, you will have to pay about 3,700 baht (and a bungalow without a sea view is 2,500 baht). Needless to see prices for your current dates.

Although, I quickly looked, out of season the price is not muchis falling. I was at the end of January, at the very peak of the season, so prices, when the season ends, may be lower. He glanced, Superior rooms with a view of the garden or pool start at 1600 baht, and about the same for a bungalow in the garden.

Interior

Hotel match its rating of 8.6 and 3 stars, do not lie. I believe that for 2000 baht - this is just a gift and I can safely recommend it to you if you stop at Lamai Beach. I immediately recall Phangan, where for this amount it is rather difficult to find something really decent and not tired.

The tale is straight, not a number. Maybe I, of course, was so impressed with the contrast with Phangan, but before that, I had already stopped at Koh Samui and there were worse rooms in other hotels. In general, in my opinion, the price-quality ratio.

As I said, the numbers are all with lessthe same view. From my balcony, the pool was eventually visible, well, that did not pay more. In fact, the windows of all rooms look in one direction at the pool and at the sea, just from the most extreme the pool will be badly seen. And the sea can be seen only from the 3rd and 4th floors (I had the second floor). In general, decide for yourself what kind of view you need.

The number is new, completely! And the furniture, and the walls, and the bathroom, everything is in order. The area is large, even more than a couple of people would need. Balcony overlooking the pool and the neighboring resort is not less spacious. Total 40 meters, probably the area will be.

The room has everything you need. A sofa, a long table and a separate table with a mirror. On the wall hangs a normal TV - flat and large diagonally. New air conditioning, refrigerator, kettle, hairdryer, safe, umbrellas, beach towels, slippers, a couple of free bottles of water and instant coffee.

By the way, a large safe can be removed there.not only documents, but also a laptop, a camera, the entire city backpack at once. The safe is bolted to the wall. The bathroom has a bathroom, and a shower, and soap supplies. The bed is very wide, meter 2 is not less.

Probably the only significant minus for me -the Internet. As luck, he is slow. Moreover, the channel is normal, at night and in the morning, when everyone is sleeping, everything flies, but during the day it starts to slow down when everyone starts to connect. Apparently, the Thais crookedly set everything up.

Territory and breakfast

The territory of the hotel is quite small, take a walknowhere. In fact, the building with the rooms where I lived, with a dozen bungalows (including the beachfront), a medium-sized swimming pool and restaurant. But the whole thing is located on the first line and you can literally take a few steps to get to the sea. The beach opposite the hotel is one of the best. Therefore, it is better to walk along the beach, and a large area of ​​the hotel is in fact not needed.

The building has 4 floors, but there is an elevator (!), Which is important for everyone who will live above the second floor, as well as in terms of carrying luggage or a pram.

Breakfast takes place from 7:00 to 10 am 10 meters from the shore of Lamai Beach. If breakfast is not included in the room rate, you can buy it in a restaurant for 300 baht per person. Accordingly, see for yourself what comes out at a price, how to book more profitably, with breakfast immediately or later on the spot to pay, the price floats and depends on dates.

But, although it is convenient, breakfast is generally not possible.take, for 300 baht is not a problem to eat anywhere, and in the hotel the choice is average. Buffet, but for some reason there are few hot dishes, literally an omelette, rice noodles with an egg, dumplings are incomprehensible with anything inside, boiled rice and boiled vegetables. At the same time, there are quite unusual dishes: baked potatoes (externally looked like bread) and onion rings in batter.

Everything else is standard: toast with butter and jam, muesli several types, fruit and salad set (not bad, by the way, olives and cheese), coffee, tea and juice, muffins and small croissants.

I would do so if at the time of booking a roomwith breakfast costing more than 600 baht (just breakfast for two), you would book a room without it. And then on the spot would decide on the mood to go for breakfast or not. If the room with breakfast is just a couple of hundred baht more expensive, then I would take it immediately with breakfast. Ordinary American breakfest in a cafe costs about 200-250 baht.

The restaurant where breakfast is served borders onbar / cafe on the beach. More precisely, this is all one institution, just breakfast served under the roof, where more space. And it’s good to sit directly in the cafe in the evening, when the heat subsided, or in the afternoon on loungers near the water, drinking a fruit shake. You can also order food there.

In my opinion the location is very good. Besides the fact that this is the first line, the hotel is still at the end of a quiet alley, so it’s very quiet here. But at the same time to the main street just a few minutes to go. And there are already 7-eleven, macacitakes, fruit trays, all cafes and bars, massage. That is the very center of Lamai.

The Tesco supermarket can be reached in 15-20 minutes.

P.S. Nearby is a cheaper hotel where I also lived - Lamai Buri Resort. True, I liked him less and he was not on the first line. But in general, it can also be considered to stay.

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.
