Lamai jacuzzi villa

Thailand’s boutique holiday island of Koh Samui boasts a collection of beaches which range from quiet and exclusive Choeng Mon to party central Chaweng. Lamai is somewhere between the two and, although geographically close to Chaweng, is much more pastoral and ideal for tranquil vacations.

Holiday resorts in Lamai are either at the back of the beach or a few minutes’ walk up quiet lanes. The best boutique resorts are on the beach and provide Lamai jacuzzi villa accommodation that is luxurious, but at prices which will not break the bank. Outside the peak holiday period, visitors can walk along the beach and choose the accommodation that takes their fancy.

Lamai is busier between December and March. It is a good idea to pre-book online to guarantee your room will be waiting and to get the best rates. The more exclusive resorts have an assortment of accommodation which includes beach front villas with pools, jacuzzi villas and suites, and three-bedroomed residences with pools.    

Bathing in a jacuzzi is a cathartic experience and provides the body with a virtual renaissance. Visitors taking spas, massages and wellness treatments often opt for jacuzzi villas in Lamai to enhance their feelings of contentment and well-being. Villas equipped with jacuzzis are opulently furnished. Polished wood and rich fabrics are very much in evidence.

Despite the fact Lamai is noted for its aura of serenity, it offers full tourist infrastructure and guests at its boutique resorts need not leave for the duration of their stays if they do not want to. The commercial heart of Lamai is near the centre of its long sweeping beach and 100 metres inland. The village centre has a selection of banks, supermarkets, eateries and pubs.

The Super Sub Club is one of several late night venues in Lamai. There are also the ubiquitous Thai beer bars as well as more traditional pubs. The nightlife venues are unobtrusive and easily passed by if you are not looking to party. Guests at Lamai jacuzzi villas are within walking distance of other noted pubs and restaurants that include Buddy’s, the Swing Bar, the Sala and the Shamrock Irish Pub.

Resorts and activity venues are eclectic on Samui and as the island is no more than 30kms across at its widest point, they are easily reached. Among recommended outings from your Lamai jacuzzi villa are Big Buddha Temple and the magical Secret Buddha Garden. The ultimate adventure activity is a dive trip to the nearby Ang Thong National Marine Park. Staff at resort tour counters can make reservations for sightseeing and adventure trips.
