Having previoulsy stayed at Manathai Khao Lak I was hopeful that returning to the Manathai chain would promise the same high standards and quality that we found in Khao Lak. Manathai Koh Samui was pleasant but not up to the same standards as that of the sister hotel in Khao Lak. We had a deluxe double balcony room, the room...

We stayed here for two nights in the Lamai suit which holds for 2adults and our 2 children 10yrs and 7yrs old. We specifically requested the Lamai suit with the bed as I understand you could also get a Lamai suit with a sofa. The first moment of walking into this hotel felt amazing, fresh, relaxing and welcoming. All staff...

Can recommend Manathai very highly. Pool is on the waterfront and the hotel rooms are on the opposite side of the road but easily accessed with the assistance of the staff who stop the traffic for you to cross. The staff are friendly and we were especially impressed with Miley at reception. My son lost his iPhone in a taxi,...

Manathai is very clean well maintained hotel. It has an authentic and astonishing style. If interior design is also very important for your stays so Manathai's room are well designed with unique authenticity. Minus points are that sea is not as nice as in chaweng and if u want to spend in the centre so chaweng is far.

Decoration was REALLY beautiful and the staff was polite. Definitely more of a 5 star than 4 star hotel, I guess the only reason why Manathai is not ranked as 5 star is the the bit far location and as the beach isn't that good. But in total its amazing hotel with the price they offer.

My partner and I previously stayed in Manathai Kao Lak; a newer, more updated resort than Manathai Koh Samui. That being said the Samui resort sits nicely on the edge of Lamai, close enough to the hustle but far enough to offer some well deserved peace & relaxation for couples and families alike. An open-back taxi to Chaweng should cost...

Recently visited for 50th birthday celebrations. Lovely hotel and typical faultless Thai hospitality. So much choice at breakfast and food quality excellent. The staff even provided a birthday cake with happy birthday sung at breakfast . Nothing too much trouble. Well kept and nice room and bathroom. Irish pub on site. Nice big pool with plenty of loungers and beachfront.
