Blu' Beach Bungalows
Ranked #25 of 51 Hotels in Lamai Beach
Reviewed 24 April 2017

Close to the beach, good snorkelling
Nice rooms
Nice (small) pool, nice pillows to lie on

Not good value for money
(Our mistake) but it completely closed during SongKran, thought it would just be the restaurant, but no cleaner, no pool, no staff
Very smelly drains in the bathrooms
No pool table despite being in the photos
Pricey food/drinks

It's nice, and I think I see what the owners are trying to do, but it just missed the mark a little.

We stayed here for a week Feb 8-15th....The staff are Fantastic, Simon the French owner is really friendly and helpful along with zach and xavier, but the stars are Ling and his girlfriend the Thai staff who are an absolute smiling delight. The location is great, peaceful and on a lovely part of the beach within 10 mins walk from Lamai center....The renovations make the bar/pool/beach area look really clean and bright...The food is delicious and the prices average for Lamai.The bungalows are due for renovation soon but are in pretty good order anyway, set in lovely gardens.We would definitely return here...For the price, it would be hard to find better.

Room Tip: There is only one bungalow by the pool/beach area, but I don't feel it has much privacy.

We had a lovely time here, we booked only one night and then ended up extending our stay for 2 more nights because it was great. Stuff are very friendly and nice, prices of food and drinks are expencive but you can always go in town to drink a coctail for 70 baht or beer 50 baht :)
bungalows are small but cozy :)

I cannot begin to say enough good things about this place... RIGHT on the beach, clean and well maintained. The pool is not over-chlorinated and is constantly skimmed for bugs by the staff. The accommodations are comfortable, no-frills and kept clean. Fridge and zircon worked well. The shower was awesome, with excellent water-pressure and on-demand hot water that was as hot as I needed it to be. Everything suited me and my girl just fine! Meal choices are reasonable priced and superbly prepared with a European panache. Go for the Breakfast Baguette!

If you are wanting more luxurious digs, stay across the road at Manathai for 5x or at Banyan for 10x the price and get.... nothing special for your money. If you know... You KNOW!

Located right on main road, with some food and drink options within walking distance, but renting a motorbike (which they also do at 250 THB per day) is advised if you want to get more of the island experience. Amazingly, even though the road is fairly close, the road sound is non-existant. Sleep was never a problem, day or night.

Blu Beach is kept clean and neat by friendly, competent staff. And they are what truly makes this place special... The Staff. Zach, Simon, Xavier and all the rest were so accommodating and patient with the guests. In particular, I had an issue with a lost credit card, and they sorted me out straight away. Just the best! Stayed for a week, and would have stayed longer if I didn't have to be back home in Bangkok.

One last attraction... No hordes of Chinese tour groups shoving and pushing, needlessly, for room at breakfast! No kids running and screaming around the pool. I could go on and on..... A winner!

We just LOVED our experience here!!!!!! I cant say enough! Safe and quiet...great location of the Bungalows... more private yet close to the hustle and bustle of Lamai's Nightlife and shops... and restaurants and markets... so close you can just walk. The bungalows are great and very simple.... small tv and fridge are perfect for a beach getaway for 2! We used the AC a few times but tried to acclimate to the climate mostly. This is one of my most favorite places I have ever stayed... the pool is on the soft, white sand beach and there are less tourists here than most resorts near the main Lamai town. The food is excellent, the popcorn shrimp are huge and the breakfast baguette was great in the am on the ocean with our coffee. Large dining area and lots of privacy if needed... quite and peaceful.. even family friendly. I adored the staff too... they were great and professional (and fun!) they even had laundry services on site and info about anything you needed to know about certain parts of the island. They will be there to help if you ask and leave you be if you want to be left alone as well. We absolutely loved our experience here.... you guys are THE BEST!!!!!!
