Where to stay near Lamai Beach

Exploring Lamai Beach

Second to Chaweng, Lamai is another of the island's busiest districts. It's a little further south down the beach (but still in the Maret sub-district). It's best known for its twin-rock attraction, but there are also plenty of facilities for tourists to enjoy. It appeals to some visitors because it's a bit quieter than Chaweng without being far removed from the scene.

Accommodation near Lamai Beach

There are over 60,000 rooms available for visitors, indicating just how well developed the lodging scene is. If you’re looking for party and active nightlife, then Chaweng beach hotels should go to your priority list. Those seeking peace and quiet while enjoying the sun, sand and sea may want to look at the South Coast. Options for lodging here include budget beach resorts, backpackers hostel, family resorts, comfortable hotels and luxurious villas. Recommended accommodation include the Banyan Tree Samui, Silavadee Pool Spa Resort and Renaissance Koh Samui Resort & Spa.

Sightseeing near Lamai Beach

The famous twin-rock formations are known as Hin Ta and Hin Yai. These rock formations on the southern coast bring giggles and wonder for locals and visitors as the rocks look like like male and female genitalia. People come here not only to marvel at the rock formations, but also because of the spectacular view from the rocks and the nearby areas. There is also a small white-sand beach nearby, with pristine crystal clear waters.

Another famous attraction is the Lamai Night Market. Similar to Patpong night market, you will find stands of vendors selling pirated goods, beach accessories, clothes and of course a food centre with delicious local fare.

Transportation near Lamai Beach

The main method of getting around the island is by taxi, and these line up in all major commercial districts as well as outside the ferry terminal at Na Thon. Songthaew pickup trucks are a major form of transport for locals, and they connect to all major towns along fixed routes. Visitors can also rent a car while on Samui, but they're technically required to arrange an international license before departing. This is merely a matter of showing your existing license and paying a modest fee. Motorcycles are also for rent.
