Excellent place to stay in Lamai!”
We highly recommend the Am Samui Palace. The hotel feels quite new and the rooms are modern and very clean, feeling like a nice hotel rather than the run-down bungalows available elsewhere. The resort also has a nice feel to it, especially the swimming pool at the center of the complex. The resort is not on the beach itself, but is a very easy 2 min walk away, so beach access was not a problem. It is also right off the main drag, offering many great places to eat and go out within a stone's throw. As a result of the proximity to the street, there was some low-level street noise at night, but with the A/C on we could barely hear it and it never kept us up. The breakfast is just okay. There is fresh watermelon and pineapple offered everyday with eggs, bacon, sausage, toast, etc., but some variety would have been nice. Overall, it really was a wonderful place to stay and is really excellent value for the price. If you're looking for a more modern way to experience Koh Samui - as opposed to living on a bungalow on the beach - for a very reasonable price, this is your place.
Lovely hotel with great friendly staff”
I stayed at the Am Samui Palace for 2 nights - it's a really nice hotel in Lamai beach. It's a slightly quieter area of Koh Samui. About 30 mins from Chaweng but personally I didn't like Chaweng so that was fine! The room was really nice and big, the bed was comfy, the breakfast was great (one of the best I've had in Thailand, the pool was a great size, lots of loungers etc. The best thing about this hotel was the friendliness of the staff - the morning front desk staff in particular were great. So friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again.
Upon ariving at the Am Samui hotel we recieved a pleasant greeting (the receptionist even carried my bag to my room for me) The staff went out of their way to help in any way they could- As it was a public holiday one day during our stay, we were asking whether or not certain things would be open, and the receptionist phoned each place for us to find out if they were open or not. The rooms were great & the pool was lovely. If I am lucky enough to travel back to Koh Samui I would probably stay at Chaweng Beach (the main area) but if I decided to stay at Lamai again I would definatly stay here again I was a bit worried about the hotel as we had booked the cheapest one in the area but it was definatly worth the price we paid plus so much more.
Great Inexpensive Hotel ”
I was amazed at how good this inexpensive hotel in Lamai was. The air conditioner was freezing cold, the staff was great and the location was perfect. After staying in Chaweng at another hotel for twice the price, I prefered the Am Samui Palace. I also liked Lamai much better than Chaweng. The scooter rental was also very cheap and convenient. Overall a great value.
I traveled with my 7-year-old daughter from NYC for a 10-day stay at Am Samui Palace and we both highly recommend this hotel. The staff and the hotel grounds themselves exude an air of hospitality and warm welcome. We both felt right at home from day one! We stayed in the "Honeymoon" suite (#319) and WOW, was it huge! We loved the room and the double balcony. The only complaint is the constant smell of excrement coming from the drain in the floor of the bathroom. The solution we had during our stay was to spray the drain with air freshener. Hopefully, the staff has found a more permanent solution. However, everything else was smooth sailing. The breakfast buffet was top notch, offering a wide selection to satisfy both adult and children's palates. The pool areas were magnificent! My child made so many friends of all ages (9 months to adult) while splashing joyfully in the pools. We felt 100% while walking the grounds of the hotel and outside in the town. Thank you, Am Samui Palace!!!!
Am Samui Palace”
We enjoyed our stay very much. Clean room (garden side), comfortable shower, bed. Air-con blows on the bed though and two extra pillows would have been perfect. Breakfast was good - nothing to complain about. No free wi-fi in the room - the available wi-fi is a little expensive and slow. Appreciated the safe in the room. No hair-dryer in the room, but you can borrow one for free from reception. Though it doesn't have a see-view we can really recommend Am Samui Palace for convenient access to everything in Lamai.
My girl friends and i have stayed at Am samui Palace hotel. It was clean and beautiful we have the room facing right at the pool so that was really relaxing. Their swimming pool is big and clean. Breakfast was good and fresh. 5 mins walk to the beach and 2 mins walk to night light and resto and shopping. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. We have are room cleans everydays and new towel every days. So if you are looking for somethings relaxing and at night time party. i would say you should stay in this hotel.
Nice quiet hotel ”
we arranged with am samui, to be collected at koh samui airport, and our driver was there to greet us on time. we were celebrating our wedding aniiversary, so they placed rose petals on the bed and also had a small vase of roses to congratulate us, which was a lovely touch. ther room was big, with a nice balcony. the pool was great, and had enough beds for all guests. the food was really good in the restaurant, and the scrambled eggs at breakfast were the best i have had in any hotel in asia. the staff were really nice and helpful on any questions we had. i would recommend this hotel to friends.
We stayed 11 nights and we couldn´t be more satisfied on our stay at Am Samui Palace. We had the pool access room and it was amazing. Very clean room same as other facilities at the premises. Breakfast buffe was very wide and there was everyhting everythign for everybody. Location was perfect. Just 50m from the beach and on the other side had the main street with the restaurants and bars, just short walk away. Nearest Family Mart and 7/11 was just around the corner. Staff at the hotel were very nice and helpful if we had some questions. I would totally recommend this hotel to my friends and family. 10+
Relaxing stay, close to everything”
We stayed 5 x nights in a pool side room. The Hotel is located right in the middle of Lamai Beach Town, with the beach only a 200 mtr walk. We stayed in the low season, which for us, was great as the Hotel was very quiet (only between 6 to 8 rooms were occupied at any one time) which gave the Hotel a Boutique feel. As it being low season, the breakfast was basic (you could get eggs cooked for you if you wanted, but that was the extent of the hot food), but you had choices of cereals, breads, cold meats & fruit, which was fine. The staff were very attentive & spoke very good english. The only negative I could find with the Hotel is that you experience dull noises from the nearby Bars around the area, but if you want to stay in the centre of the town, than that's what you need to expect. Overall a very pleasant stay & will be definitely staying back at Am Samui when back at Lamai (PS. Lamai Beach is a lot better beach than Chaweng)
Am Samui Palace Hotel,”
The Am Samui Palace Hotel is well located near the shops, restaurants and nightlife. During the day time beach access is a short walk through another resort. However to get to the beach at night or early in the morning means walking along the main road and down a long side street as the gates are locked. This was only an issue for us as I had the crazy idea of getting up early to watch the sun rise. Security seems very good and both the reception staff and cleaners are very friendly.
This was my second stay at the Am Samui Palace, you could not get a better location.Right in the centre of Lami, yet set back off the main road.At the entrance to the hotel is the Bangkok Bank,so you have an ATM on your doorstep.This the leads to a wide range of restaurants, shopping areas, night bazars and bars.A 2 minute walk at the back of the hotel and your on the beautiful Lami Beach.The rooms are large and modern, with everything you need in them. eg safety box, coffee/tea making facilities.All the staff are helpful and nice.
We had a great time on Samui Palace!”
We have a great time on Samui Palace, good location in the haert of Lamai Beach, clean and very nice room, superbeds and airco you cannot hear. A great swimmingpool and very kind personal always friendly and helpfull. Only the breakfast is a little bit poor, it's enough but not much choice's in bread, yoghurt. But we are sure we come back, maybe in November this year otherwise next year in april/may.
I enjoyed my stay at Am Samui and would stay there again if I return to Koh Samui. The hotel is conveniently located across the street from the Lamai Night Market, but it was sent in from the street so it was quiet despite being in the middle of restaurant, stores, bars, etc. The hotel staff was friendly and the rooms were clean. I only eat breakfast at the hotel and the breakfast was decent.
Overall good experience of am samui. When we first arrived we had a problem with the toilet self flushing every minute or two. This was an on-going issue with the plumbing in the rooms (so this problem wasn't new to the reception staff). They quickly gave us the option to move rooms so a negative was quickly rectified into a positive. Pros: Comfy bed Less than 5 mins walk to beach Right on the strip where the bars and restaurants are (but no noise can be heard) Hotel staff are lovely Help yourself library Towels for the beach or swimming pool prvided Cons After agoda have taken their taxes etc the pool room we had cme to £100 and unless you plan on staying put and using this facility it's quite a pricey room! Internet can be flaky!!
Great hotel, friendly people and good location”
Am Samui Palace Hotel, Lamai - very friendly and helpful people. Well located centrally for beach (50 metres) and main drag for bars, shops and restauarants. Room was a very good size, very clean and nice large balcony - nice touch with clothes dryer provided on balcony. Probably the best shower I had in Thailand ! Good breakfast buffet selection provided, friendly staff and happy for you to take out coffee afterwards. Gardens were nicely laid out and complemented the nice pool area. Good value with Agoda discount rates. I have nothing negative to say about this hotel - enjoyed my stay very much and would have no hesitation to stay there again in the future.
We stayed only for one night. It was a plesant stay. Nice, big room with safety box, TV, huge bathroom. We prefer a bit more relaxed place and moved away from Lamai. If you are staying in Samui for few days and want to be middle of everything, this hotel is a good choice. Breakfast is just about OK, nothing special. Not a buffet breakfast, you can choose either American ot Thai breakfast. Rooms don´t have kitchen - so, not good for a long stay. Beach is few minutes walk away. A lots of good restaurants nearby
Very Nice Hotel and Staff”
We enjoyed our stay at the Am Samui very much! We arrived very late but the staff greeted us with big smiles and had our paper in their hands. No complaints about the room at all. It was very clean and had all the modern facilities. The hotel was close to shopping, restaurants, beach and even Grandfather and Grandmother rocks. Make sure to spend some time at the absolutely beautiful pool! The design and decorations around the pool are done to perfection. Definitely worth the money!
Great location and a fabulous pool”
we really enjoyed our stay at am samui. it has the perfect location right in the centre of lamai with the streets and nightlife out one direction and the beach out the other direction. for it's location, it is actually very quite. the staff in the hotel were all very friendly and helpful. the pool was lovely and well looked after. the room we stayed in was a superior poolside and was very nice and spacious, with modern decor. i would definitely recommend am samui as a place to stay.
Great location, friendly staff”
This was my first time to stay at Am Samui Palace, and I'm sure I'll go back. The staff were very friendly, and the whole complex is in a very comfortable setting, surrounded by gardens lush with Thai greenery. The beach is a short walk away, and the main nightlife areas of Lamai are within 5 minutes walking in either direction from the exit of the hotel. Overall, a nice hotel with friendly staff and a great location.
