"Don’t let the road down to the resort fool you. Because once you arrive, you are greeted by a wonderful staff, who is always polite, welcoming and helpful. The resort itself is very clean and modern. Family deluxe room has plenty of space. I wish there was a gym, though. The restaurant has a great view of the beach. Breakfast is tasty, but lacks variety. Dinner is great. The location itself is close to several sightseeing places, but too far to walk to go to Lamai center (at least with kids). However, the hotel provides transport (for 200 THB or free shuttle at 13:00 with return at 16). The beach is clean, but there are too much rocks around the shore. Everyone of us got cuts from them. All in all, I would recommend this resort for anyone who wants to stay in Lamai."

"My wife and I stayed at the weekender for 4 nights in October 2012. The Weekender has many room types from very budget to upper class. We stayed in a Deluxe room. There are big, beautiful and clean. There is a large building at the back of the resort right near the road where the standard rooms are these were all getting a make over with a lot of building work going on at this block. The Deluxe rooms over look the pool area and the beach. There is 1 big pool and 2 smaller spa type pools below it. They are beautiful and over look the beach. As we visited in Low season they didnt have the full buffet breakfast every morning, we were able to order off a small list what we wanted. But breakfast was enough to start the day. The grounds and garden is very well kept and clean.The staff were very helpfull and Nide arranged our transfers to Koh Phangan and we were picked up at the hotel and taken straight to the pier for our boat all tickets etc all arranged and I could not have done it any cheaper myself so it saved me a lot of time. So well done Nide it all went really smooth. The hotel is in the perfect position in Lamai, there are so many shops and restaurants surrounding it that you never have to eat at the hotel if you dont want. There are night food stalls set up just a short walk from the hotel and they are amazing. The best and cheapest food we ate whilst in Samui. Make sure you eat there, you wont be let down. Lamai is nice and quite compared to Chaweng its perfect for a relaxing holiday.Would stay here again if in Lamai."

"After did for so many filtered of hotel, thanks god, this is the best selection of hotel. We enjoyed big pool and beach front hotel room. But the hotel is a bit inside from main road, you will need to walk out like 5-6 mins to access to main road. Therefore we rented a bike with hotel so that we able to drove to far to explored others areas than Lamai beach. We would like to suggested Lamai View Point. Must check it out if you happen to come Lamai. The massage service Infront of our hotel is superb, we had try massage and scrub. It is Just a few steps walked from hotel room to the beach & massage place. We really enjoyed our stay in this hotel. You can also rent water sport -like jetski with nearby company. We felt It is cheaper compare to Chaweng Beach. But for the environment surrounding we felt it will a little more quiet compare to Chaweng Beach. Definitely will stay this hotel again! "

"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. "

"this place was heaven - my best stay ever. we had booked at ocean view balcony. when we got there, they offered us a pool villa!! we didn't even ask, and there was no extra charge. the pool villa was so enchanting, with the mosquito nets around the bed. great bathrooms too. oh and their shampoo and conditioner is great too - works better than what i have at home and i bought it to take back with me. the spa looked very nice but we weren't able to get a booking on the same day. staff were very friendly and helpful. breakfast was divine - with champagne and made to order items like pancakes and eggs included. only downside was the beach - water was too rough to enjoy. perhaps it was just the season. another downside is that i left my bathing suit in the shower and they weren't able to find it, so it was probably stolen. the shuttles to lamai beach worked perfectly well for us, and it was a nice walk back in the evening. we enjoyed the beach at lamai, although it's definitely not one of the most beautiful beaches you've ever seen - sand is a bit rocky. but our stay was bliss, thanks to the pool villa. this is a great hideaway. highly highly recommend.

"We arrived at about 2pm at Banyan Tree Samui and was immediately attended to by my Villa Host, Mr. Thep. As our rooms were not ready, we were ushered to the Lobby Lounge to wait. As we were ahead of check-in timing, we could only have the villa ready by 230pm. Our host introduced us to the resort and the dining options. Perhaps it was raining, hence he did not bring us around. He was also attentive to our needs from start till the end of our stay. Service was warm, yet not overwhelming. Unfortunately the Ocean Pool Villa had only a glimpse of the ocean. As we understood, Banyan Tree group is active in conservancy of nature and hence trees were not cut down just to give any villa a good view. We decided to pay for a room upgrade to the Sanctuary Pool Villa. The view is breathtaking (180 degree unblocked view over Lamai Bay), the best among all the resorts I have stayed in. Our host also arranged for some decoration, flower bath, a cake and wine to celebrate the wedding anniversary for me and my wife. Amenities in the room and in the resort was also excellent. Sufficient activities provided for me to stay in for the 3 nights I was there. I felt that food at the resort can improve. Apart from the Samui Fine Dining menu I had at Saffron restaurant, all other meals were just average."

"the first time we came in our room we were slightly disappointed. we thought we booked a suite but it turned out that we read it wrong on the website were we booked the room. although the hotel was right and we read it wrong, they still did everything in there power to make us feel special and offering us something extra to make up for our own mistake. the front office manager remembers everyone and makes a small talk every morning asking how we are doing and what we need. the rooms are nice, clean and have a nice view of the sea or the garden. we had the maya pool room and this is a room that i would recommend to everyone. you have your own pool that you share with only 10 other rooms. this is a big difference comparing to the other guests who have to share 1 pool with everyone. at the room you have your own balcony and your own beds at the pool. another thing what we really loved was the food. although the breakfast is not that spectaculair (fine but not very special), you can have a nice dinner at the beach and the price is great! they know how to prepare a nice meal for only a few dollars. because they have a great staff it is nice to just sit at the bar in the afternoon (happy hour from 4 till 5, only for 2 cocktails!) and talk to the bartender. they are a good company. the location of the hotel is great as well. in just a few minutes you are at lamai beach and within 20 minutes you are in chaweng. because chaweng is very busy and populair with the youth, it is great that you can choose when you want to be there. the location of samaya bura is perfect because you can relax and choose to be in a busy area when you want to. we rented a scooter at the hotel for 300 thb per day. you can rent them somewhere else for thb per day but you have to give your passport for security and we don't trust that. we went to three different hotels and thailand and this hotel is our favorite!"
