Nice Place to Relax!”

Join with Swing Bar, Clean big room and Nice Beach Front

On Lamai Beach, the Rich Beachside Hotel features a bar(Swing Bar) which boasts scenic views of the ocean and a simple but nice décor. This place is easy access to shopping, dining, massage palours and entertainment spots. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the hotel and the beach bar. Rooms are big and clean and feature cable TV, a fridge and a personal safe. They are fitted with ample storage space, a vanity table and private bathroom offering hot shower facilities(Bath Foam and Shampoo). The Beachside Hotel is a 5-minute walk from the centre of Lamai. It takes a 20-minute drive from the hotel to Samui Airport. The popular Grandfather and Grandmother stone is about 1.5 km from the hotel. The tour desk helps guests organise excursions and island tours. Alternatively, make the most of the tropical weather and relax on the many lounge chairs located on the beach(free usage for guest of the hotel and bar). Thai and European dishes are served at the Swing Bar Beach Restaurant. It also has pool tables and free Wi-Fi usage is good. Sports fans can watch the latest sporting events on the restaurant’s flat-screen TV. We also enjoy fire show on the beach. Good thing about the Bar is staff speak english. A Very enjoyable stay for me and my friends. Thank you Mr. Adrain one of the owner that arrange everything in a nice way and buying us shot on welcoming us the the Swing Bar and hotel. Great one !!!

Perfect hotel for a alcohol fuelled weekend”

Friendly staff - cool bar opposite

I stayed at teh Rich resort before and enjoyed my stay. On my way back from Koh Pangyang before going on to Bangkok I stayed again in Koh Samui at the famous Rich Resort. This time they upgraded me for free,(maybe cause it was November and not a very busy period) which was great. I have to say all the staff were relaly fun and more than welcome to help. There is a swing bar oppostie which is part of the the Rich Resort, great place to drink and chill out. All in all I would recommend Rich resort, you get what you pay for in term of room, but still clean and comfortable.

Rich resort is located in Lamai the quiet part of Koh Samui. Its on the beachfront which is handy and has a bar and restaurant attached to it. Prices are decent unless you drink there at night in which case the prices go up for some reason. Food was pretty bland too we ate on the main strip a lot as cheaper and better quality. Rooms were vey big and comfy however fan is in an awkward place so it can get quite hot at night. Shower is hot and powerful and rooms are cleaned daily with free water shampoo etc. safe in provided in the rooms for added security. The wifi isnt great and disconnects a lot an the front desk staff are half hearted. We would reccomend but only for peace and quiet on the beachfront!

Great location ”

very near the sea
maybe becoz too near the beach side, so sometimes quite smelly in the room.

We stayed here for 4 days 3 nights, the hotel receptionists are very friendly and informative. And I like this hotel so much is becoz its very near the beach side, and they have their own restaurant just in front of the beach side . But the only 1 thing 1 not so happy on it , is maybe its too near the beach side so sometimes the room will s abit smelly...But the room is very clean, as I saw their house keeping is clean the place often. And I suggest to have the Wifi service in each room also. Anyway, I think I'll stay this hotel again if I go Koh Samui again.

As a couple travelling around Thailand for 2 months, and with a budget of Baht per night, Rich Resort was very good value and has been amongst the best hotels we stayed at during our holiday. We stayed in a standard air-con room, and originally booked for 3 nights and extended our stay to 7 without any problem. Any minor problems during our stay we quickly, efficiently rectified - and always with a smile.

We really enjoyed Rich Resort. It is a budget hotel with basic facilities but the rooms were cleaned every day, bedding changed every day and soap/shampoo/body wash provided in wall mounted dispensers. No views but great service. Tours/transfers and onward travel can be arranged via Reception staff. I would defiantly stay here again.

Budget hotel by the beach”

This hotel is within walking distance of everything in Lamai

This is a budget hotel and my room was average, however I did see some nicer rooms there. Apart from guests being noisy in the corridor, my stay was pleasant and the staff were very helpful,for example my air-conditioner broke down at about 9 pm and they made sure that it was repaired, very pleasing. The car park is small, it carters ,more for scooters. It is a pleasant area to stay and I would stay at the Rich Resort again.

good value for money”

You pay 5USD for a basic dorm. They provide you with a towel and you have a lock to lock your dorm. You are located right on Lamai beach and have access to a pool. Can't really ask for more for the price honestly. Only thing missing would be a common area. My only con (and it isn't related to the hostel per say) is the restaurant attached to it. Prices are way to high for what you get. The owner is an absolute jerk. Expects everyone from the hostel to eat at his place. He was so rude to my friend and I. Since there are no common area, we thought we could sit there without purchasing anything (since it's linked to the dorms) . He was extremely rude when he was speaking to us. We genuinely didn't know, but his approach was absolutely ridiculous. Thinks he runs Lamai or something.

Large Budget Room steps from the beach”

Location, wifi, size of room

You get what you pay for, folks. I paid more than I should have on Agoda considering the age of the room - it is pretty old. The washroom was awful with a shower head that spit water all over the washroom but barely touched the person showering. There are lists of rules and fines all over the room - not very welcoming. A few sports channels and 1 fuzzy movie channel on the tele (but I wasn't here for the TV!). No kettle or hair drier - even upon request. 1 star is 1 star, I guess, and Samui is a little on the pricey side in high season. The good: the stretch of beach across from the hotel is arguably the best on all of Samui. We loved lounging there and eating at Swing Bar (cheap and decent food) and Bikini ( a few doors down with great prices and great American food - try the wings!). 5 minutes in the opposite direction gets you to the main road filled with great restaurants and coffee shops (we loved Uncle Don's Ice Cream and Let Them Drink for pool and drinks). There are also numerous massage shops, girlie bars, and shopping haunts along this road. It offered everything we needed without being overdone (Chaweng is fun but a bit too much for us in our late 30s). With a minimal effort and investment Rich Resort could be one of the best guesthouses out there, but as is I am afraid that I would not stay there again despite all of the aforementioned positive attributes related to its fabulous location. If you are not picky and can get a deal go for it!
