Beach Republic Hotel, Lamai

Beach Republic Hotel, Lamai

If you are or want to be part of the hip crowd and can hack it financially, this is the place to be on Samui. Self advertised as a sexy resort, it may well be true.

Designed as a hip, futuristic Mediterranean resort, this property is definitely set apart from the rest on the island. Lounge by the Ocean Club, take a dip in the pool, or walk down to the beach for a round of volleyball.

End your day with a trip to the resorts Asian Fusion Spa, which uses practices such as Chinese reflexology, Japanese Reiki, and Indian Ayurvedic. The accommodation here is described as St. Tropez style, with rooms starting from 95 sqm and equipped with a full kitchen.

It's happening, sophisticated and be part of the in crowd. Enjoy a relaxing day at the unique pool and it's design.

Near Lamai's nightlife (you will need transportation to get there) or slightly further away, Chaweng, you won't get bored easily. The resort can also arrange for custom made activities.

Be hip, be there.

Langham Place Samui at Lamai

Langham Place Samui at Lamai

This brand new luxury spa resort aims a bit at the hip audience and has some interesting features to boast. Located in Lamai, this first Langham property in Thailand perfectly achieves its concept of 'modern living by the water'. A lobby overlooking the beach, constant service from the beach and resort angels, wi-fi throughout the resort, and the latest in home stereo are just some of the features. Do pink pool towels count?

With 77 spacious rooms and villas, the resort can supply the accommodation that matches you:

• Essential Place
• Poolside Place
• Plunge Pool Place
• Pavilion Pool Villas
• Ocean View Pool Villas

Each with their own price tag, but that goes without saying. They had some very interesting opening offers and it's worthwhile to check on a regular for more offers.
Just be aware that the hotel is still a good kilometer or three away from Lamai downtown or at the other side of the hills along the beach road towards Chaweng even a bit more.

All in all; vibrant, playful, engaging, fun... Langham Place is the luxury spa resort that constantly surprises. Enjoy understated luxury, sparkling service and a unique Lamai Beach location.
