Best of our Samui hotels
Small, modern and well designed, We enjoyed that place more then we expected! We especially appreciated it when we spent 2 more weeks in other two higher range hotels, and visited couple more while choosing next spot. After our stay, we definitely would’ve choose LaVida over some other 5 star hotels on Samui where we ended up, too bad we didn’t book more nights in advance, willing to explore. Located on one of the best beaches, hotel is small and easy to walk around, breakfast was excellent, where quality dominate quantity and caters to all tastes. Every room has Nespresso machines with good coffee and tea supply in the room, strong internet connection, and SmartTv. Kayaks and paddle boards at the beach. I did mention it, because these basic commodities were still non-present in some other 5* hotels, that was a surprise. The rooms are on smaller range but very functional. Soundproof is not the best, so you might hear some very noisy neighbours, but it didn’t bother us too much. It is a very quiet hotel but still kind of close to the party-sector of Samui when you go left while exiting hotel, and classier areas are to your right while exiting. Staff is very nice and professional. Nice & clean massage place on the right from the exit. Thank you, La Visa!

Excellent new resort with beautiful pool and beach
Excellent new resort in Samui. Well located few blocks from where the Chaweng action starts but still very quiet and private. Well appointed room with very comfortable bed. Nespresso machine in the room. They provide quality beach towels every day in the room with two handy beach bags. The grounds are amazing. Beautiful pool and lounge chairs, both by the pool and at the beach. The ground keeping staff does a great job of keeping everything pristine (including the beach). Plenty of lounge chairs, no need to fight for one or "reserve" like in other resorts. Paddle boards and kayaks available for guests at no extra cost. The staff is delightful and always service with a smile. Breakfast very complete with egg station and espresso coffee machine. Highly recommended.

Service could be better
The hotel itself is very nice. Great location. Quiet. My only issue was with the service. Our room smelled strongly of sewage. We spoke to the front desk. Both very nice ladies but it was clear they didn’t want to change our room. Said they would have the housekeeper do something to help. Ok fine. We left for the day and coming back it was fine for a bit then later in the night it came back again. With 1 night left we figured we’d just deal with it. Walking around at night, it seemed to be that whole area having a strong sewage smell. We get it. Islands have these issues sometimes. The bartender - was in some kind of bad mood. My partner asked for a menu and she gave this nasty face as though it was difficult to hand over a menu. Whatever. Maybe she had a bad day. Lastly, the day we check out I asked if they could call a taxi for us. Instead of saying yes, we were told to walk a little out and find on our own. What? The hotel is in a quiet area so finding a taxi that early is a bit difficult. I politely asked again do you have a number I can call then. Finally she said ok I can call one. So why not call one when I initially asked? Just these small things turned me off to this hotel. We don’t ask for much and always tipped our server and even the rude bartender. Otherwise the grounds were very nice and relaxing.

Average at best
Lot's of confusion at the property. Staff mishandled billing, among other things.

Great Hotel with Friendly Staff
We had a great stay at La Vida Samui. All correspondence for taxi transfer in advance was replied to very fast, and everything went smoothly. The staff was incredibly nice and helpful, and we had a very cozy stay. The facilities were well maintained, the pool was great, and the room was also very nice.

Absolutely beautiful
This hotel is amazing, new and clean. The location is right on the beach on the quieter end of Chewang beach. The deluxe room we stayed in was absolutely beautiful. Staff were all lovely. Breakfast was amazing. For us it was the best hotel, we stayed in 4 other places. It’s a 10/10 for us
