What to Do in Lamai Beach

Bike around the island and through the jungle, learn the art of Thai boxing, frolic in the refreshing water of Coco Splash Water Park, workout at a well-equipped fitness centre, or quite simply spoil yourself with a day at a spa - Lamai may be a small location but it's amazing how many choices it offers.

Spa Samui Resort
Spread over two locations in Lamai - one beachside and one in the hills, Spa Samui Resort is now famous worldwide for its fasting and cleansing programmes, and kick-started the whole trend for alternative health spas with its opening in 1992. Fasting packages range from one day to seven days and are augmented by reflexology, meditation and yoga classes.
For the passing visitor there's also massages, including Thaiatsu, Aroma Oil and Healing Clay, facials and other treatments on offer. Their mostly vegetarian restaurant (same menu at both sites) was recently voted one of the fifty best restaurants in the world by an international magazine and serves a huge array of salads and health shakes unavailable elsewhere on the island.
Accommodation is available at both locations although the hillside site is much newer and its bungalows are a higher quality than those on the beach.
