Samui Tonggad Resort
Ranked #26 of 45 Lamai Beach B&B and Inns
Reviewed 23 September 2012

We had a lovely time at this resort. The management and staff are so friendly and helpful and always smiling. Nothing is too much trouble for them. Bar and restaurant is right on the beach. We had the best time there and would definitely go back again. Excellent value for money. Laid back, informal, quiet and relaxing which is just what we wanted, but just a short taxi ride to main town and all the night life and street markets and shopping you need. They also offer reliable airport transfers cheaper than local taxi firms. Loved it there. Felt like we were leaving friends when we came home. Think perfect way to sum it up is we wished we could have stayed longer!

Room Tip: Speak to Ali, such a helpful guest relations manager. Some rooms are a little walk away from the bar...

I stayed here for 5 nights with my husband and 4 and 1 year old. The 2 bedroom house was spotless and had everything we needed, it had a kitchen area but the fridges are in the individual rooms and there is no TV in the living room but only in the bedrooms, which was a bit weird and renders the living area a bit useless. The beach we never used as you can't swim so we hired a car and went to the nearby beaches instead. The restaurant is OK but you can find much better food elsewhere. The staff are really friendly and everything works! I would recommend they invest in some highchairs for infants as they didin't have one which was a bit of a pain.

Thank you very much for such a review.

The end of Lamai beach where our resort located was made to be much quiet and relaxing sea shore. The splendid experience for sunset on the right side and a perfect dinner whilst listening to the music of splashing waves. The shallowness of the beach SOMETIMES, was meant to be so happen to stay the place so much relaxing and away from the crowd.

About the baby chair for the restaurant thanks for that recommendation, we will improve that part.

About the living room area, we will try to improve that part as you try to recommend us for some activities. Thank you for that such a good idea for us to improve more our facilities,

We are glad to know that you're happy with our services whilst staying with us for that wonderful 5 days!

Thank you very much!

Nice resort but standard rooms are far from restaurant, pool and beach.We upgraded to bungalows that is much nicer, larger and close to everything.Uncle rang's restaurant was nice with good food and good service. The breakfast was plain and the same every day(not buffet).
The beach had no swimming as the water was very shallow. We had to walk very far to get too a place were you can swim - only great for tanning.
Staff very friendly and helpful but language a problem.Dolly even took my wife shopping which was great The resort also insisted in keeping our passports and arrival and returned them only after checking the room which we found very unprofessional.
Bit away from everything with only a few restaurants close by - need too rent a scooter if you want to explore.
Peaceful and quiet resort if you just want to relax.

Room Tip: Get a bungalow.

Thank you very much for this wonderful review.

Let me just explain for the breakfast, as we usually offer we have free breakfast which is "American Breakfast". Actually, you can choose whether what kind of breakfast you want and you don't. We can also offer cereals and pancakes or any if the customer request for it. We still charge it for free.
For the Standard rooms, yes it is a bit far from the restaurant and pool and beach, but the site must say perfect as it overview the sea. That is why the management also decided to erect those "New Villa Garden view" to still have the option to stay near the pool,restaurant, and the beach. The sea water is unpredictable this year, the water is really not so deep, but we still respect this kind of status as it makes the area still peaceful,relaxing and quiet atmosphere.

About the passport, actually it is really part of the policy, why? because this is the deposit for the key of the rooms, normally some hotels do the same either. Some used to take their credit cards, but we didn't. The passport is in safe and if the customer badly needed it we can give it right away. And also customer have 2nd option if they really don't want to deposit their passport, they can deposit 2,000 THB and that will be turn back upon checking out.

Thank you very much for staying with us. Good to hear that you enjoyed and liked our service during your stay. :) Have a great day ahead! The staff missing both of you and your wife :) Hope that we can have your service also when we come there in South Africa and rent one of your houses.haha

We just spent a week here and it was fantastic. We upgraded to a villa at a great deal. The villa was beautiful and the bed was very comfortable. The staff was always smiling and accommodating. We spent a lot of the time at the pool/restaurant area with Elisa, the waitress. She and the other staff members really made our trip even better. We spent a lot of the time laughing and relaxing. If you go to the restaurant, you should try the fried calamari. It was so good. But beware of the tax and service charge.

The only downfalls were that we had to use island water to shower (can be a bit stinky) and that we couldn't swim in the ocean. If you walk out into the water for 10 minutes, the water was still at your ankles during the day. Also, you'd want to go out in water shoes. Luckily, they have a nice pool.

We had our wedding at STR! Dolly and her team went beyond our expectations and ensured a truly fairy tale wedding. The food, accommodation and just their hospitality is from the highest degree and recommend them to anyone. Just want to thank the whole team at Samui Tonggad, we will definitely see you again.
