Best Hotels in Lamai Beach

You might find websites rating Lamai as the 2nd best beach in Koh Samui after Chaweng, but that creates a distorted reality, because there is in fact no difference in its quality. It is just as flat and great for swimming as Chaweng, it features exiting water sports and divine accommodation. Below we feature only a few of the best hotels in Lamai Beach ranging from bespoke 5 star resorts, great 4 star venues, romantic places to stay and family friendly resorts.

The fact that the area is less crowded than Chaweng, its streets not clogged with traffic while it still features a joyous nightlife and more restaurants than you will ever need might make it a better option if you find its northern neighbor as just too busy. Besides these motivations it is also central, only 10 minutes from Chaweng for when you feel like throwing yourself into the human current while moments to its south secluded bays like Bang Kao and Tong Krut reveal them selves.

As mentioned Lamai hotels include some of the best names in Koh Samui featuring places like the luxury Banyan Tree Resort and Spa and Silavadee offering exquisite pool villa accommodation which is utterly romantic, Rocky's Boutique Resort with its intimate coves, The Beach Republic has ideal family accommodation in 2 bedroom villas and not to mention the ever popular Le Meridien.
