While Amarina Residence is set just off Lamai beach, the sand is just a minute away on foot, which makes the smart and very well kept rooms here great value for money for those who want some creature comforts without spending the earth.

Blink and you’ll miss it walking by the street frontage on Lamai Beach Road, but inside Amarina reveals three floors of rooms, with the higher floors offering some views and the ground floor including an unusually placed splash pool/Jacuzzi in the middle of the atrium lobby in front of reception. There is complimentary instant coffee in the lobby area.

Rooms are simple but have all the standard facilities for this price point -- box TVs, free WiFi, minibar, bedside lamps, a sash over the bed and towels contorted into peculiar looking elephantish creatures. Bathrooms are clean with hot water showers. The larger rooms are considerably bigger, with plenty of space for an extra bed should you need one, making this a considerable option for families on a budget not fussed about being off the beach. The cheapest rooms have no windows, but do have glass doors looking onto the atrium, so are not complete caves.

Overall this is a similar deal to Lamoon Lamai towards the southern end of Lamai, but here you are closer to the beach and have a wider variety of nearby eating options. Amarina is very easy to miss; you’ll find it just to the south of The Pavillion. Check online for discounted rates. If you’d prefer to be on the beach and don’t mind paying (considerably) more, the nearby Samui Jasmine is excellent and one of our top picks for Lamai Beach.
