5 stars! I dropped two times on my 1 week holiday for 2h afternoon session. Really great versatile training. It's really popular but they have many trainers and as it was my first session since 15 years, trainers still had time to give me attention and give me corrections.

Haben dort eine Woche täglich zwei Mal trainiert. Überragend! Mehr braucht man nicht sagen… Kein typisches Touristengym, sondern auch sehr gutes Niveau im Gruppentraining. Mehrmals Einzeltraining mit Nong gebucht und sehr viel von ihm gelernt. Weltklasse Trainer! Es war mir eine Ehre.In dem legendären Gym atmet man den authentischen Muaythai Spirit tagtäglich ein.Zeitgleich trainieren dort sehr viele Weltklasse Kämpfer.Wir kommen wieder!

It was my first time trying Muay Thai and I was really impressed and scared before I started (I am overweight, I have several injuries and had never practiced any combat sport).I was advised to start with a private session and I loved it so much I booked one every day until I left Ko Samui.I had a kind, patient and motivating trainer who pushed me to do better and supported me through my training.I had such a great experience it made me want to find a club back home and keep training until my next visit in Ko Samui.Thank you so much for this wonderful experience.

Lamai MuayThai est une grande école de boxe thaïlandaise ! J’ai assisté à l’entraînement du matin, ce fut une très belle expérience grâce à la pédagogie des entraîneurs et à leurs compétences. L’entraînement était à la fois physique et technique, j’ai appris des choses intéressantes sur une seule séance de groupe. Je reviendrais merci 🙏🏼

Advanced class is great if you are competing, high level training and coaching, and many skilled partners to spar with.Open class during dec-jan is too crowded, and mostly consists of drills with a partner and general fitness drills,not so much individual attention from trainers as hoped.

Ich habe im Lamai Muay Thai mehrere Gruppen- sowie Einzeiltrainings absolviert. Die Einzeltrainings habe ich bei Coach Vorn absolviert, ein super Trainer welcher meine Technik massgeblich verbessert hat. Er korrigiert während den Pratzenübungen durchgehend, dies macht das Training sehr wertvoll. Der beste Mix für mich war 1x täglich Einzeltraining und 1x Gruppentraining. Das Gruppentraining ist sehr gut besucht (meistens 20-40 Kämpfer). Am Anfang war ich etwas skeptisch durch die Gruppengrösse aber ich wurde nicht enttäuscht. Das Training wird durch mehrere Coaches begleitet welche korrigieren und Pratzen machen. Mir hat es extrem Spass gemacht mit so vielen Kämpfern Sparring zu machen und von Leuten auf allen Niveaus zu profitieren.Ich werde definitiv wieder kommen!

Stayed here for a month during summer and it was fantastic. The group classes are great and cater from beginners to more advanced folks/pro fighters. The accommodation is great, it makes a big difference coming from training into a room with a working shower and aircon, not worrying about your stuff. Beds are made regularly and the laundry service is excellent - standard price on the island and really fast, clothes come back feeling nice. The gym is cleaned regularly and the PT sessions (which were invaluable) were more affordable than other places on my Thailand trip.Compared to a similar gym I visited after Lamai MT (which looked almost identical from all online information/pictures given), I cannot recommend staying here enough - from a training, comfort, and hygiene perspective. Ralph and Nikki are fantastic and will help with any issues super quickly as well.Thank you!

I walked in and booked a day in advance (quite a lot of availabilities in the schedule of the trainers in July).I had a 1:1 with Jack, and can say as an inexperienced boxer it was a lot of fun.I’d recommend doing a class at the start of your trip and taking a few classes during your time in Thailand.I made a mistake by booking a class on my second last day but next time I’d book earlier and take multiple classes if I can.

My son and I had had an incredible time training at Lamai Muay Thai for a week. every single person that worked there was so extremely nice and welcoming. That was such a relief because walking into a gym surrounded by professionals, it can be a bit intermediating walking in as a beginner.My trainer, Jack was fantastic. I've only been training Muay Thai for a few months, and Jack immediately picked up on the things I was doing incorrectly and explained the correct way to do it, plus the reasoning behind it, which then made it make perfect sense. One of many things that made it so great was that wasn't just indiscriminately hitting pads for an hour. Jack would work with you the first part of the session slowlybuilding and explaining the technique and building on what you had worked on the day before and then after you have a good understanding, he would then grab the pads and let you go to town, correcting you in the process. For me, that was an extremely effective way to learn. I just wish I had booked the trip longer so we could have trained more.My son loved his trainer, View. He was completely new to Muay Thai and after every session he was excited about all the things View had taught him.If you're planning on training Muay Thai while is Samui, there is no need to even consider going anywhere other than here.Hopefully we will be able to come back in the near future.Thanks Lamai!

I recently decided to give Muay Thai training a try, despite not being a sporty person. I found a gym that offers group training sessions, which are available daily from Monday to Saturday. The training hours are convenient, with sessions running from 7 to 9 in the morning and 17 to 19 in the evening. The best part is that it's a drop-in format, so there's no need to book in advance or commit to a long-term membership.During the training, we went through a thorough warm-up and were shown various kicks and punches. We had the opportunity to practice these techniques with partners and trainers, and there were also sparring exercises to improve our skills. The session concluded with some intense kicks on the punch bag and stretching exercises.What impressed me the most about this gym were the trainers. They were equally motivating and demanding, which kept me, as an absolute beginner, motivated throughout the entire training. Their support and guidance were invaluable, making me feel comfortable even though I was new to Muay Thai. By the end of the session, I was completely exhausted but incredibly satisfied with my decision to attend.I want to express my gratitude to the trainers for their dedication and excellent coaching. Thanks to them, I've discovered a new passion for Muay Thai and I'm definitely planning to come back for more sessions. Whether you're a seasoned athlete or a beginner like me, I highly recommend this gym for Muay Thai training.
