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.

Good Resort at an Affordable Price”
The rooms are basic, but you get what you are promised. Most of the rooms have no outside windows, but there is good ventilation. The restaurant is right on the beach and has superb views. Well decorated. If you're traveling on a budget and want to treat yourself well, I wold definitely recommend it. No hesitation. In fact, I am going back next week.

Great value for money hotel”
Loved it, great location large size quiet room with A/C and fan. Staff were friendly. The only thing I think needs improving is the shower but that's a minor issue. I travelled to 3 different places in Thailand this was the cheapest hotel and I enjoyed it the most, so much so I will be going back this year.

Pleasant place, great location”
This is one of the nicer hostel experiences I've had in SE Asia. The dorm is right on the beach and the street it's on opens at the main road right to the night market with great (and cheap!) street food. They clean the bathrooms daily, A+ lol. There is a bar and restaurant downstairs that gets a healthy number of patrons while not being too rowdy. The beachfront is crowded with sunbeds but it's easy to find a bit more space just a few steps up or down the beach. Overall a great place to kick back and chill with plenty of convenience.

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 !!!

Clean, friendly staff, and great location.
We were very happy with the hotel's cleanliness. Normal things to look out during a stay in a hotel were clean and spacious beds and bathroom. They have them all. And the beach and main street with eateries are only a few steps away. Very convenient.

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.

stayed at rich resort in november for 1 night. the room was nice and clean, shower could of been a little bit better but enough to have a quick wash. the staff were very friendly and happy to help. i liked the fact the resort had a bar acorss the road which was a pretty cool place to relax which also over looked the beach and offered free space to sunbath. ended up booking the same hotel on my return, this time they upgraded me for free. will stay at rich resort again, great vaule for money.

Rooms are not great at all, no windows ect. Pictures are Mis leading. But the restaurant Infront of the hotel ( obviously a new partnership) makes up for it as the beach area is great sun loungers, pool and service, but as for the hotel...... my least favorite out of all the hotels I've stayed in thiland

Dear Reinhard, We're glad you were able to enjoy the hotel's prime location. I'm not sure what you mean about the leaky bathroom floor, since you did not mention this throughout your stay and no one else has mentioned this either. All our rooms are checked and faults like this are rectified immediately. Either way, I'm sorry if this negatively affected your stay and we hope you enjoyed the rest of your travels.

Brilliant value for Money! ”
I can't praise this place highly enough!! I had such a wonderful time here. I wanted some where on the beach and this literally couldn't have been any more beach front, the beach bar, sun beds and parasols and free wifi were a real bonus! And if It got too hot there was an undercover area with a pool where you could sit :) The food and drink were excellent quality, and so cheap!! 100 baht for a cocktail in the daytime (£2!!!) I booked initially just for two nights but ended up extending for a week at only 450 baht a night (£9) it was an absolute bargain. The room was big and was fine with just a fan. A nice comfy bed, a good shower, it was more than satisfactory. I hve been backpacking aroud Australia and New Zealand for the last four and a half months and I just wanted some privacy and relaxation time and this resort served that purpouse perfectly! I couldn't have been happier. Sure it's not the ritz but for the budget minded traveller it will more than surpass your expectations. In fact I already told my boyfriend that we are coming here on honey moon!!!

Unfriendly receptionist”
We have paid for 2 rooms for 2 nights on Agoda. Upon check in, the receptionist tell us off straight away that "you need to split your booking for 1 room to another hotel" which didn't offer any alternative or further explanation. When we asking why we need to move and they just show us the face and ask us to sit for her manager back. We have been waited for 20 minutes, and no one offer any assistance, i think this shouldn't be the way that you treat your customer. And we go and ask again for what time manager will be back that we need to wait for, receptionist just reply, don't know. And when the manager come back, no even a sorry be apologise. At Last, we still need separate our 2 rooms, is okay for young traveller to split the booking rather than travel family with citizen. is very not good! Even if want to split the booking, should inform us earlier than that or offer alternative choice in advance, rather than straight INSIST or DIRECT tell us off that like no choice for a traveller. I believe give a choice for guest is a service line should provide, and by showing face to your customer is not right at all time. For the room is spacious and clean, if have a kettle in room for coffee and tea is better. Restaurant serve good food and drinks. Overall, will choose better hotel which to get a better customer service.

We enjoyed this hotel because it was right on the beach and you could use the pool area and the beach chairs for free. The food was delicious and the breakfast deal was really good. Thank you for having us! We got a room with a fan and it was really hot some days in there. So if you are not good with the heat rather get an air con room
