The hotel

Koh Samui’s luxury hideaway, The Lamai offers guests unrivalled comfort in a spectacular location with breathtaking views over the Gulf of Thailand. Discover your own piece of paradise from the scenic surrounds at Lamai Beach. Suites and villas are beautifully appointed, offering every mod con the discerning guest could wish for. Choose between a Verandah Suite with garden views, a Terrace Suite overlooking the pool or a Plunge Pool Suite with private plunge pool right in the centre of your room! Amenities include a world-class spa where trained therapists expertly combine ancient and contemporary cultural practices to revitalise mind, body and soul. As well as a relaxing massage, a coffee scrub by Illy Coffee is highly recommended! There’s also a state-of-the-art fitness centre or relax by the oceanfront swimming pool instead, topping up your tan. There are various dining options at Le Meridien, including in-villa barbeques and dinner on the beach. You can also dine under the stars on the resort’s unique 224-metre floating Ocean Pier or simply kick-back with a drink on bean bags and cushions. Latest Recipe is the resort’s signature restaurant with an exciting menu that blends East and West. There’s also Latitude 9 for delicious world cuisine. Every night, at precisely 19.19, join staff and fellow holidaymakers in releasing khom loys (bags of luck) into the air. A wonderful Feng Shui ritual, the purpose is to say thank you for the day just passed whilst looking forward to another day to come!

The Lamai Samui is the new name of Le Meridien. Beautiful place! The photos on the website are pretty representative of the reality.  The view from the dinning room is stunning. The beach is beautiful. The fitness club is ok, just fine but not great. There was no water bottle in the fitness club. The bathroom has a open roof which is pretty inconvenient when it rains. Internet connection is weak. I am an entrepreneur using it all the time including during my holidays and it was below my expectation.  For instance, in my room (6204), it was too weak for video calls. Beautiful place for vacationers who want to enjoy the beach but I needed to work remotely a few hours per day and this place was not what I needed. Read less

We had booked our dream wedding for April 2021 however due to Covid-19 we decided we would need to cancel. We cancelled and our contract stated we would be owed 50% of what we had paid. Our many emails requesting this refund have had no response. This is a cynical attempt to avoid refunding money which is legitimately owed. Be very careful in booking in the current climate especially as they have now re-branded and not part of the Marriot brand-the new hotel is called The Lamai Samui Read less

This is a wonderful resort if you want to 'kick back' and relax. One tip, if you plan a trip go for the villa's with a private pool and beach view...you will not be disappointed! The food selections are very good and Happy Hour on the pier is very good.
