Beer Bar Central is the best option for single male traveler looking for companionship and nightlife entertainment in Lamai. This area hosts the town’s largest concentration of girlie bars and can be found just a few minutes walk away from the more family friendly Lamai Central Plaza. Crowd is a little older, very few couples around so the bargirls are more brash, fun and energetic. This redlight district is comprised of a large beer bar complex at it’s centre surrounded with more girlie bars sprinkled along it’s interconnected streets, all of which are competing for the chance to go make your at night. Your best bet is to just wander around this busy areas until you find something that catches your fancy, beware what you pick as some bars have also ladyboys working.

The Bill Resort is a cheap and easy place offering guests a relaxing environment right along one of my favorite parts of Lamai beach. Resort is quite big, spreading out from the top of the hillside all the way down to the swimming pool and restaurant area next to the wonderful beachfront. The setting are really nice, rustic little bamboo huts surrounded by nicely manicured gardens, plants and trees which truly immerse you in the jungle. I Didn’t come here expecting for big luxury so I was quite pleased with the cheapest standard bungalow category which are bit dated but come with all the basic necessities : A big bed (little hard but nothing outside the Thai norm), small fridge stocked with cold drinks, good AC (but not great), older TV set with a handful of english speaking channels and a terrace to sit outside. Location is about 10-15 minutes from the nightlife, be aware the cheaper category rooms involve a trek up a steep hill. In the end I’d say Bill Resort is great for the money and would come back in a heart beat, perfect for those who like it simple, comfortable and cheap. Definitely not 5-star accommodations […]

The Coconut Beach Resort is a modern airy three story building ideally situated right next to the beach and within a 5 minutes walk from the Lamai Central Plaza beer bar complex. The beach end is beautiful, very good spot for swimming, plenty of beach lounges to go around, cold beer served at the bamboo bar and nice quiet pool just few steps away from the ocean. Booked the cheapest category standard room, fairly modern but a bit spartan, size ok at 30 m², decently sized balcony, all the essential amenities covered: Big comfy bed & pillows, good air-con unit, mini-bar, free Wi-Fi desk, bathroom has shower over bath. Few negatives: LCD TV attached in a corner on the ceiling is a bit small, boiler with tea/coffee missing but available for free at the reception. Otherwise nothing to really complain, central to the nightlife, right at the beach with pool and bar, definitely recommended for the price. Have a look below for the pictures I have personally took during my stay of the room and hotel amenities. What you see below are the actual pictures I took when staying in their Standard room

Lamai Central Plaza is a large 2000 square meters open air plaza best known for it’s long-established dozen or so beer bars at it’s centre, popular street food courts on it’s side and it’s weekly free Saturday nights boxing events including men, women and if you are lucky transgendered fighting it off in the ring during the high season months. Beer bars generally open between 6 & 7 PM but things here really only start to get lively after 9PM with loud music and pole dancing bargirls once the couples and families with children have gone home. Ambiance usually is at full swing by 11PM and can keep going pretty late depending of the season, don’t worry if you don’t find a bargirl that tickle your fancy, selection here can be scarce at times as this not Lamai’s premium adult playground. Most punters in need of companionship will actually head straight to a bigger beer complex named “Beer Bar Central“, and it’s area which comprised of a few interconnected streets offering a wider selection of girls just 5 minutes walk away. I strongly suggest giving a try at both redlight districts during your stay in Lamai.

The Palm Coco Mantra is a beautiful new boutique hotel with just 20 rooms and 6 bungalows nestled on a fabulous beachfront location on the outskirts of Lamai. Vibe is relaxed and friendly, The grounds are meticulously landscaped. Facilities include a lovely infinity pool, plenty of comfy sun beds/big bean bags adjacent to a beach bar and restaurant area. The staff are exceptional, you really feel that personal touch from the moment you set foot until the moment you leave. The beach was fine, although water levels in this part of the bay are very shallow, making it not suitable for swimming. Great resort to chill out, lay on beach, dive in pool sometimes and enjoy the view. Got a Superior Sea View on the third floor, rooms is bright and colourful, bed large and extremely comfortable, also spacious enough at 30 m² in size, all the essential facilities provided: Mini-bar, TV with HBO, excellent WiFi signal, small safe and padlock, coffee/tea making facilities plus a quiet and efficient a/c unit. Bathroom was a bit of a letdown, just a wet room but everything functional. The balcony has very comfy chairs with cushions, the sea view is really stunning to […]

The Samui Sense Beach Resort is a perfect options for those looking for a holiday with the beach on your doorstep and almost immediate access (under 5 minutes walk) to the best nightlife and beer bars of Lamai. Located on a beautiful stretch of sand with no shortage of sun loungers and bean bags around, good beach bar, well priced drinks and friendly staff. Gardens are lush and green, atmosphere is very relaxing by the pool. The Samui Sense is a rather small resort with 44 rooms, facilites are not new but generally well maintained, they offer a selection of the cheaper superior rooms in the main building, while the more expensive suites and bungalows are around the pool area. I booked the most basic room, the superior category, found them to be exactly as described online, well appointed, good bed ( they can provide you with an extra top bed if you find yours too hard), strong AC unit, TV with limited selection of channels, lots of hot water in the shower, safety box and small mini-bar. Keep in mind that at 22 m², this category is not for those who plan to spend a whole lot of time […]

The Aloha resort is located at the quieter end of Lamai Beach, but within easy distance (10 to 15 minutes walk) from Beer Bar Central, the main bargirl enclave in Lamai. The swimming pool, immaculate grounds and beach are what sells here. Rooms, especially in the lower categories are a little dated and in need of renovation but are clean, spacious and provided with everything you need. WiFi on the other hand is poor throughout the resort either loosing connection or extremely slow, except for a tiny area in the reception area. There are ample sun loungers around the pool and beach, not too much towel reservation going on. No pool bar though, a little annoying to have to go in the small restaurant each time to ask for a beer. No fault to the staff, which are super sweet and are doing their best although some language difficulties. In the end: Quiet location but not far from the action, nice pool & beachfront area. Accommodations are simple, furniture older but not bad value for the money overall. Have a look below for the pictures of the room and hotel amenities.

The AM Samui Palace really got a lot going for it. 1st, the location offers the best of both world, within a 5 minutes walk you can either have your toes in the sand at the Lamai beachfront or doing some nighttime shenanigan in the company of bargirls at any one of the towns beer bar enclaves (Beer Bar Central or Lamai Central Plaza). 2nd comes the amenities, Once locked inside, the AM Samui Palace feels like a little oasis of peace with well manicured tropical gardens, two beautiful swimming pools, loads of sunbeds and a fantastic swim up bar to chill around during happy hour (2-6pm). 3rd the rooms: Spacious, modern, well furnished and with a big balcony, some even with direct pool access in the newer wing. WiFi throughout the resort works great. Awarded TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence. Would highly recommend this hotel! Have a look below for the pictures of the room and hotel amenities.

The Beach Republic is located on the northern part of Lamai Beach, about a 30 minutes leisurely stroll along the beach into central Lamai or a 5 minute scooter ride. The resort, which opened a decade ago has been very well maintained and is quite unique, there two beachfront pools from where you can enjoy sweeping ocean views with a great assortment of places to relax and chill out around the property, really comfortable sun loungers, sofas and large cabanas. Apartments & Suites are great, tried the club suite category, beautiful decorated rooms, modern and up to date with all the amenities one would expect from an upscale resort. Very comfortable beds, multiple pillow choices, good English entertainment options the TV, well equipped kitchenette, excellent WiFi throughout, actually better than in some EU & UK destinations! Large balcony overlooking the gardens with table, chairs and sun lounger. Staff is extremely friendly and attentive, you can see them from early in the morning out and about early cleaning up the beach and pool, making sure everything is immaculate. Included Breakfast is fantastic, great selection on offer. À la carte menu was delicious but pricey compared to local places to eat. In the […]

The Lamai Bay View Resort stands at the quiet end of Lamai bay in a peaceful location a good half an hour on foot from the beer bars of the Lamai city center, or just only a quick drive by motorbike which can be rented at the property. For those are uncommon with the area, one of the most beautiful strips of sand of the island: Silver beach is only 15 minutes walk away. The property grounds are very inviting, about two dozen individual bungalows are spread in a tropical garden on sloping terrain that ends in a beautiful beach. Bungalows price depend mostly on size, not so much of amenities. Definitely not 5-star but pleasant and well maintained, furnished with all the basics: Big fridge, decent A/C unit, TV set, electronic safe, coffee making facilities and Wifi. The private terraces all offer splendid views. The resort amenities also include a swimming pool, open air restaurant and a small private beach with some sun loungers and hammocks. In the end a great a place for those looking to relax and totally unwind during the daytime, not so much for those who need nightlife and entertainment right at their doorsteps. Have […]

The Lamai Wanta is one of the most conveniently located resorts in Lamai, directly in the middle of the action with all the beer bars, pubs and clubs practically at your doorstep or within an easy 5 minutes walk. Tucked in a side street in a lovely tropical garden setting, very little noise of the hustle and bustle manages to get into the resort. A pool overlooking the beach is found at the front of the property, with poolside bar service, always plenty of sun loungers to chose from on the beach and around the pool. Entry level rooms are quite basic but come with all the essentials (TV, A/C mini-bar, safe, kettle, free daily water, etc). Particularly enjoyed the bed and pillows, unusually comfortable for Thailand. Unfortunately WiFi signal was hit and miss. Free standing bungalows area also available closer to the beach. Highly recommended for it’s proximity of the nightlife, excellent beachfront location with an infinity pool overlooking the sea and competitive rates during low season. Have a look below for the pictures I have personally took during my stay of the room and hotel amenities.
124/264 Moo 3, Maret, Lamai Beach, Lamai, Koh Samui 84310, Thailand
The Manathai Koh Samui is Located at the northern tip of Lamai beach, about a 15-20 minutes walk from the beer bars and nightlife of the Lamai center. The resort is split in two by a road, the main hotel portion of the resort itself is quite beautiful, reminiscent of an old colonial house with a small pool, two restaurants and a pub on site. The main pool and beach club are on the other side, it’s pool is big and the view overlooking the sea is very pleasant, waterline bar next to it is excellent, lots of sun loungers around to sit back and relax. Staff are very polite and friendly, the food here is also quite good although a bit expensive. Beachfront is a little disappointing as it at the top of a cove with rocks, shallow with no direct swimming area at all, for that you will need to walk a further 500 meters further down to find very nice swimming beach. Booked a deluxe room on the ground floor with a private outdoor patio, decently sized at 32 m², bed is super comfy and large, TV reception a little is fuzzy, reasonably priced mini-bar, plenty of power […]
173/41 Moo 4, Rob Koh Road, Lamai Beach, Lamai, Koh Samui 84310, Thailand
The Marina Beach Resort is an excellent no frills beachfront accommodation, set a bit back from the main road so quiet and relaxing once inside but only 5 minutes walk to the beer bars, wide stretch of beach and sand right on the doorstep, perfect for swimming and sunbathing, deck chairs available as well as free towels, small pool seen better days. Tried the bungalow category, which are not exactly stand-alone but more like a duplex, quite basic and old-fashioned, bed was too firm to my taste, Wifi slow, otherwise rest of the amenities: Air conditioner, TV, safe, bathroom/shower satisfactory. Nice little balcony to pop open a beer, no noise from the bars. Cheaper rooms are also available in the main building but haven’t tried yet. Overall while in the budget category, the resort offers good value for money, the location is top with the beach almost at your front door and the nightlife just 5 minutes walk away. Recommended! Have a look below for the pictures of the room and hotel amenities.
124/169 Moo 3, Lamai Beach, Lamai, Maret, Ko Samui 84310, Thailand
The Pattra Vill is a beautiful resort right at the heart of Lamai, literally right nextdoor to the towns largest concentration of beer bars and nightlife: Beer Bar Central and only a 6 minute walk to the lovely Lamai beach. Situated in a well-maintained, beautiful garden, the highlight is certainly the large and inviting swimming at it’s center, the perfect antidote to a long night out partying. The accommodations, which make up a total of 22 rooms or villas are all very spacious with high ceilings. The smallest room category at the The Pattra Vill Resort starts at 50 m² and come equipped with everything you need: Beautiful finishes, great mattress, linen, and pillows, larger-than-bar-size fridge, flat-screen TV, Reliable and fast WiFi signal, kitchenette, front patio to relax on, etc. If you enjoy partying all night and you want to be staying as close to everything as humanly possible, to after go back and fall into your private little comfort space, then this is definitely the place to be. Maybe a little expensive but if you got the budget, this is wonderful new resort with great accommodations, a big and inviting pool surrounded by a beautiful garden at an unbeatable location […]
124/329 Moo 3, Lamai, Maret,Surat Thani, Koh Samui 84310, Thailand
The Samui Beach Resort is secluded on the quieter southern of Lamai and is best for those looking for a very relaxed atmosphere away from the crowds. While still within walking distance (15-20 mins) from the main beer bar area just renting out one of their scooters at 200 baht/day would make sense to come and go as you please especially at night. The resort is generally very good value for money year round, definitely not in the high-end category but got all the basics covered for a good stay: Lovely gardens with plenty of places to lounge around, small swimming pool, a restaurant/bar all just a few meters from the beach. The accommodation ranges from older rooms in a two stories building to classic garden bungalows and a more posh deluxe beachfront bungalows category. Personally tried only garden bungalows, no real issues found, kept fairly clean, AC worked perfectly, good bed, flat screen-TV with good reception, mini-bar, maybe the WiFi not too stable, dropping out here and there otherwise no complaints. In the end a great little budget resort at the end of Lamai beach, bit of a walk to town, recommended to have rent a scooter or be ready to […]
124/11 Moo 3, Lamai Beach, Lamai, Maret, Koh Samui 84310, Thailand
The Samui Laguna Resort enjoys a good location on a quiet part of the beach just a 5-10 minutes walk from all the pubs and beer bars of the town center. This part of the beach is fairly large, clean and the sea is good to swim in. Amenities include a nice little swimming pool and a beachfront restaurant offering a generous Happy hour from 12pm to 7pm with plenty of sun loungers around. They offer bungalows near the beach and a cheaper rooms in their main building. The bungalow are a bit old fashioned but fairly large in size at 40 m²/431 ft² with a generous verandas, not luxurious but in the 3-star category, maids do a decent job at keeping the place spotless. Bit disappointed by the old crt type TV and the fact there is no electronic safe in the room, otherwise everything else was of good standard. In this end good value for money, short walking distance from the bars, bungalows close to the beach, pool and bar with long happy hours, what more do you want or need? Have a look below for the pictures of the room and hotel amenities.
124/103 Moo 3, Lamai Beach, Lamai, Maret, Koh Samui 84310, Thailand
The Samui Seabreeze Place Hotel is located in a quieter end of Lamai just a very short, hundred or so meters walk from the beach across the road. Nightlife and Beer Bar Central are also conveniently located only two hundred meters away down the road. Atmosphere is Friendly and chilled, the main building could do with a little TLC here and there but otherwise but the pool area and facilities are in great shape. Rooms themselves are quite small, but clean and functional with all the basic necessities: Mini-bar, proper air-con, electronic safe, older TV set with a decent selection of stations, WiFi, decent enough walk-in shower with hot water and a balcony. Never been bothered by any noise at night from the nightlife area as you could hardly even hear it from the balcony. No restaurant in house, but all you need to do is cross the street to their sister resort, the Sea Breeze Bungalows from where you can enjoy a meal and all their beachfront facilities. In the end a nice little no-frills hotel in a quiet location, close to the beach with a nice little swimming pool. Have a look below for the pictures I have […]

The Sand Sea Resort & Spa is a beachfront hotel within a 15-20 minutes walking distance from the beer bars of Lamai. Beach was quiet, great swimming areas all around, perfect for those looking for a relaxing stay. Don’t come here expecting for luxury, resort is simple and basic with some parts a little run down but the bungalows are just a few footsteps from beach, plenty of sunbeds available, swimming pool is nice and deep, loved the laid-back vibe at the beachfront bar and restaurant, staff are friendly and happy. Do go for a sea front bungalows or suite if you can afford them, they are amazing. Overall, the resort could do with a little TLC here and there otherwise great little unpretentious beachfront resort in a quiet part of the beach just a short walk from the centre of Lamai. Have a look below for the pictures of the room and hotel amenities.

Nested on a steep hill top about a 10 minutes walk from the Lamai viewpoint, the Tropical Sea View Residence is made up of modern studios and apartments offering gorgeous views over Lamai beach. Rooms are large, comfortable and have all the modern amenities you could expect from a private residence, TV’s all the rooms, WiFi, kitchenette, efficient and quiet air con units, ample wardrobe and storage, floor to ceiling glass partitions and large terraces with in a Jacuzzi in case of the deluxe category apartments. Common area only include a swimming pool, staff is polite and very easy going, but do keep in mind these are not serviced private residences so cleaning and change of bed linen/towels only occurs twice a week. Renting out your own transportation vehicle or motor bike is also a necessity as it’s otherwise a harrowing task up and down into town every day. Highly recommended for those looking for private modern residences with magnificent views over Lamai beach from your balcony. Have a look below for the pictures of the room and hotel amenities.
127/232 Moo 3, Lamai, Surat Thani, Ko Samui 84310, Thailand
The Varinda Garden is a very unique resort perched on a hilltop overlooking the ocean and south Lamai Beach, it is a little hard to give an exact description, because it is so many things at once. Over the course of 20 years, the same Thai family has been running the resort, what started out as a few simple huts on Lamai beach developed into a sprawling laid back hill oasis. The multi-level design offers lots different areas to explore, to best sum it up the Varinda Garden Resort is one part hippy counter-culture, one part artistic melange and one part tropical jungle oasis. It’s impossible to walk around it at first without having a smile with the multitude of different little visual aspects and funky decorations all around. The bungalows are set in a lush tropical garden setting, surrounded in think vegetation and secluded from one and other so you’ll hardly hear or know any other people around. While rustic they are quite cozy. The resort has is a lovely infinity pool area and restaurant offering open view over the bay. Above of which there is a huge, again open view lounge area with hammocks and chairs to relax […]

The Weekender Resort is conveniently located right on the beachfront and within 5 minutes walking distance from the naughty nightlife of Lamai. Facilities at this upscale 4-star resort are excellent, quiet and spacious surroundings, neat and tidy gardens, fantastic infinity pool with plenty of beds leading straight onto a portion of the beach that is ideal for swimming, gorgeous views from the beach front, restaurant and bar a little on the expensive side. Standard rooms are the furthest from the beach and closest to the street, recommend booking at least the superior rooms, just 10 meters from the pool, higher category is either directly around the pool or with sea-view. Rooms are beautiful, a little dark but modern and clean, great bedding quality, slept like a baby in a completely noise-free environment for my whole stay. Only downside was the WiFi in the room, which was limited to only two devices, other than that a great stay! So in the end, If you are looking for a quiet, well run 4-star resort in the center of Lamai with direct access to the beach and a great infinity pool this is aplace to consider. Have a look below for the pictures […]
