Lam Seth Beach starts in the west, near the Ban Thale River, which shares it with Bang Khao Beach. It runs along huge, empty, mountain sites, and three luxury hotels: Banburee Resort & Spa , Kamalay и ShaSa Resort & Residense .
After 1.5 km the beach ends with a huge rock, on which built a house belonging to the hotel Beachfront Villa Baan Paradise . This is one of two areas of the island where the coastal the line is very picturesque and has no straight sections longer than a hundred meters
The beach meanders a snake, between rocks, round boulders, trees on the shore, and changes from turn to turn. On the contrary hotel Kamalaya sand is coarse and white, with shells and pebbles. BUT two hundred meters west, the coast is covered with fine white sand with corals, to the delight of the bounty lovers of beaches.
The Laem Set plots opposite the hotels are in perfect order, cleaned and smoothed with a special tool. Considering the cost hotel rooms, (and Kamalaya is considered one of the most expensive on Samui), this is a fully justified procedure. Opposite vacant lots, where only planned to build hotels, Lam Seth is in original, with a slight touch of human swinishness.
On the border of grass and sand lies a variety of garbage – from shoes before the glass. As well as the remains of marine life and heaps building materials.
The beach is completely owned by someone and is surrounded by a fence. from the barbed wire, so on the shore you can only meet lodgers of four hotels and stray tourists. In case Anyone interested in reading about other places, I have a quick overview. all the beaches of Samui, will help you decide in choosing a beach.
Entry, depth and waves
Entry into the water all over the beach Laem Set is difficult stones. There are small areas relatively free of boulders. and large stones, but there is no perfectly clean sandy bottom. WITH ebb, the next hundred meters of the sea become one big puddle, and to the depth you will have to walk about 400 in special shoes meters
The beach is ideal for relaxing with the kids, for them there is a whole set small frogs, a bunch of pebbles and interesting items on the coast, the absence of high waves in any weather, except for storms.
Shallow water is more than compensated by the purity of the water and landscapes Laem Seth, one of the most charming and peaceful on Samui. With high water, the sea rises to the very edge of the coast, where grass and trees begin to grow. And the higher the sun rises, the more incredible picture emerges with azure water, white sand and the islands of Tan and Matsum.
Sun beds and shade
There are no conditions for independent rest on Laem Sete. Or rather, there is still a wasteland, you can go into the territory, leaving equipment on the road, but in the hotels you are unlikely to be let in longer than on five minutes. No lounges for rent and other beach pleasures. AND very rare vegetation near water.
All trees are located away from the sea. If we consider that at low tide the water runs away god knows where – the presence of a beach umbrella in midday hell is a must.
On the beach there are kite and kayak rentals, but only for guests. the hotel. The area around Lam Seth is very separate, it is on low mountains and represents one big green spot the jungle, which becomes more or less populated closer to Bang Kao. The nearest hypermarket is located on Lamai, 10 km to the north, It is about 30 minutes by car.

The development area around Laem Set Beach is limited to those listed. hotels and a small amount of private housing. They are all hidden behind high fences, guarded, with elegant facades.

This is one of the areas where the calm and safety of hotel guests guarded, regardless of the right to freely visit the beaches in the kingdom. I was lucky to talk with the hotel administrator Kamalaya, an exceptionally friendly and adequate person, who singled out a companion and a golf cart for exploring the beach. Everything other administrators responded politely, or not very polite by refusal.
The attendant was very surprised, and on the way down shared, as usual, outside visitors are only allowed to inspect the hotel from balcony lobby. I also learned that the hotel is never full. less than 80%.
