Great hosts are what make the Sallamai. A trip to an elephant sanctuary booked on our behalf turned out to be one of the highlights of the holiday. The only meal served at the Sallamai is breakfast but there are eatery options a 15 minute walk away by the beach. The lane down to the coast road can be very dark so best to take a torch. There is a clean swimming pool on-site and there is also a small bar.
Our hosts were kind enough to provide us with another room on the day that we left as we had a later flight. The Sallamai is around half an hour from Koh Samui airport by taxi or car.

An excellent choice for a tranquil stay just mintues from Lamai village and beach. Comfortable air-conditioned rooms, refreshing pool, a generous and delicioius home-made breakfast, attentive staff, and charming, helpful hosts. HIghly recommended.

This resort might not be big for some people but what it lacks in size covers with hospitality of the owners Isabelle, Bruno and staff make sure to make it feel like home. They make everything easy from transportation airport to resort/ resort to airport and also help you get a motor bike to travel around the island fast and easy. With the help of navigating and showing you on the map where to go with no troubles and make it easy for your pleasure of the reminder of your vacation. This place wont break your budget, you get all that you need from the Sallamai Resort: Free wifi, free breakfast, access to a great swimming pool. Rooms are great with our stay we had no problem. Close to Lamai beach, and 10-30 mins to other beaches around the island. Also close to great food. We came here for a friends wedding, but if we decide to make another to trip to the island of Koh Samui we will definitely be staying at the Sallamai Resort. Thanks again Isabelle and Bruno for everything thanks is not enough for what you guys did for us on our stay.

Location: The location is about a 10 minute walk to Lamai beach. This is counting taking a short cut through a rather unpleasant dirt field. We took this path every morning but it was dangerous at night due to the lack of street lights and broken glass. Taking the path along the road added an additional 5 minutes but it wasn't a problem for our group.

Room: We stayed in the Master Pool Room with a view of the ocean. The room was just the right size for a couple. The bed was firm but we have come to expect that while traveling in Asia. Compared to mattresses in America, everything is firm. The porch was a great place to hangout at the end of the day and watch the sun set. We played cards and enjoyed the peace and quiet. The jacuzzi is a COLD jacuzzi which worked great for us because it was extremely warm outside. After a day at the beach it was a great place to cool off. Overall the room was exactly as we expected when booking.

Staff: This is where the hotel exceeds expectations. I have had excellent service all over the world and the owners of this small resort match the best of them. They want their guests to enjoy their stay and it is very visible when speaking with them. They are happy to assist in any way.

Amenities: The breakfast they serve is simple yet excellent. The timing of breakfast is could be considered an issue if you are an early riser but for us it worked great. The pool was small but it would satisfy children while the parents relax.

Overall: When we walked through the gates we weren't sure if we chose the right spot but by the end of the trip we couldn't imagine staying anywhere else. The owners take pride in their hotel and it shows. This hotel is a great value and I highly recommend giving it a try.

Thank you so much Logan for your review we enjoy and share with all the Sallamai team. Your appreciation about the team is particularly heartwarming. Thank you. If perfection would exist something wrong must be hidden ! ;-) You make it crystal clear as far as the jacuzzi is concerned (thank you to emphasize the lack of hot water ;-)) and we appreciate it to avoid any confusion with future guests... We have particularly kept with us your daily "joie de vivre" and your very friendly attitude fitting so well with Koh Samui. You even managed to make Samui the center of the world for a while from your native North pole to the South pole of our Chilean guests ! ;-) Thank you again to you, Ashley, Dany and Quilan for your stay. Cheers
