Beachfront bungalows in Koh Samui

Posted by dancingstar on 31/7/2010 at 20:03

Hi

I am looking for beachfront bungalows in Samui either in Lamai or Chaweng beach. I dont want to break my back with expensive rates so looking at ranges upto 1700 Baht per night. Any suggestions?

I stayed at a place on Chaweng Beach about 5 years ago called Al's Hut.

It's 32 individual bungalows that are lined up perpendicular to the beach, so only the front two really have a good view of the water. It had just opened (they said) when I was there in 2005. I liked the location and thought it was good value, especially compared to most of the places that usually turn up in internet searches.

There are dozens of similar places on either side of it, so if you are coming in the off season you might even just turn up and pick a place once you arrive.

Lamai Inn 99 have very good clean and spacious bungalows, I have been there twice, I paid 1100 for a garden villa, I think the beach front were 1400. Should I ever go back to samui I would definately use it again.

Yeah, what Tezza said!

I remember wanting to stay at New Hut a few years back, but it was a big more budget than the missus was willing to try. Looked perfectly good to me however, and was about as "on the beach" as anywhere that's left on the island.

One other area on Samui that still had "on the beach" huts during my last visit was Maenam Beach over on the northern edge of the island. Slower-paced but still charming vibe up that way.
