Villa Nalinnadda, Lamai

The Villa Nalinnadda, Lamai is located a bit South of Lamai and is a small, very friendly and family run hotel. With only 9 rooms and the quality they deliver, it's by all means a real boutique hotel.
The rooms are comfortable and have relaxing furnished terrace areas. With two walls consisting almost completely of glass, the rooms are bright and and nice a great view over the ocean, just in front of the hotel.
The beach in front of the hotel is not that great for swimming but there's a lovely pool to enjoy and lay back at.
For outside food options, you will have to make your way to Lamai itself, where there are plenty of options, the Villa Nalinnadda, Lamai is relatively isolated and not many food or shopping options are nearby. It makes for a great relaxing time though.

The Sunset Beach Resort & Spa, Baan Taling Ngam

With the Sunset Beach Resort & Spa, Baan Taling Ngam you have a small and intimate  four star resort with just 21 rooms and/or villa, with a concept based on maximizing privacy and space for people who want to relax and celebrate their well-being. Not hard to do here! A private beach and pools are at hand.
Taling Ngam is fairly isolated, it's not the action packed center of the island but a lot more laid back and quiet. Still, a very nice part of the island.
The resort boasts it's own restaurant on the premises and nearby are some other options. 

Enjoy the quiet and relaxed Southern part of the island in a medium range pricing arrangement.

Dara Samui Beach Resort & Spa Villa in Chaweng

The Dara Samui Beach Resort & Spa Villa in Chaweng is a fairly new Resort, being build in 2005 and 2006 and it was opened in 2007 for the middle luxury market segment. It was built in a 'Lanna' Northern Thai style with authentic details such as real gold leaf layer pictures on doors and wall murals. With great eye for detail, the result of all of this is a resort that uniquely represents the best of ancient Siam with all modern conveniences integrated to a harmonious concept.

Besides this, it's 70 rooms are located near all the hustle and bustle of downtown Chaweng, with all the shopping, dining and night time conveniences, whilst still being able to offer a quiet environment once you are inside the resort premises.

The resort offers two dining options with the Dara Serene, near the sea front and the Lanna Restaurant facing the lively Chaweng Beach road.

Dara means star and I can recommend staying in this comfortable resort and enjoy the beautiful Chaweng Beach.

Baan Bophut Beach Hotel, Bophud

The Baan Bophut Beach Hotel, Bophud is located smack down in the middle of Fisherman's Village and it's weekly Friday walking street. Plenty of restaurants and bars are within walking distance, like Juzza Pizza, which is practically a neighbor. 
It's a very cozy hotel, with it's 12 rooms being renovated this year. It truly is a luxury boutique beach hotel, with a small infinity pool, garden and direct beach access. Although the beach doesn't rate as one of Samui's best, it's a very quiet and relaxed beach.
The airport is a mere 10 minutes away, and in less time you can reach 2 shopping malls, one with a build in movie theater. If you want nightlife, Chaweng is under 15 minutes away. 

A relaxed, quiet and very central location for a good price. Recommended.
