In this post we want to introduce you to three mid range hotels at Lamai beach on Koh Samui island.
1. Long Island Resort
When you go here, be sure to check out the bathrooms first – some bathrooms are good, but some are not. Look at different ones and pick the best. The staff is friendly, but the one thing that is not nice about this place is the beach at low tide. So before you go there, check when the tide is, and be sure to avoid it then. Because at low tide, you can “walk on the water” here… or mud, to be more accurate.
However, there is a good swimming pool. And they have a small and beautiful pavilion where you can get massage treatments.
If you prefer a quiet place, then this is a good choice, because you’re away from the nosy area of Lamai beach. They also have a great bar and restaurant.
2. Spa Samui Resort
This is a good choice for health nuts. If you want to go fasting, then this is great. You can chose between hotel rooms and A-frames. And while I often think A-frames a really cool, in this case, I prefer the hotel rooms. The thing is, fasting won’t be easy – because they actually serve excellent food here.
3. Sea Sand Resort
This is the third mid-range hotel on Lamai beach. Well, actually it’s a resort too. If you come in December or January, it is highly advisable that you book in advance, otherwise there might be no more rooms available.
The staff here is really great, and if you choose the more expensive beachfront bungalows, you get great accomodation. Also, they have a bar and restaurant directly by the beach where you can always mingle with other people.
