“The beach, not the hotel”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

It is only the second time in 18 years of travel, the we can say we really did not like a hotel, but the hotel grounds, beach and island FANTASTIC. The rooms look big, but have no cupboards, not even a rack or draw and the bathrooms are dated. The breakfast on the one morning was not to bad, but on the next morning consisted of two eggs, three pieces of bacon. No fruit ,yogurt or salad. The milk for the porridge was sour. We had a beach bungalow and a great view. We ate our meals only at Fantasy hotel. The best beach part of Koh Ngai is between Thanya resort and Mayalay resort.

the bungalows are big and the bed is surrounded by a moskito net.
there is air-con and fan.
the bathroom is very big and kind of outside which I like a lot.
there is aswell a massage temple which is a little expensive for thai standards, you could just walk either direction of the beach and go to another massage place.
staff is very friendly and helpful

The name resort is not really suitable anymore ..... They do not clean the beach, bungalows are well cleaned but old. Shower is not really warm, not enough sunbeds at the beach but just cheep folding chairs which uncomfortable.

They " repaired" the beach with sandbags which is not a nice vieuw

The breakfast is poor and old fashioned because of the furniture and old fashioned looking tablecloths ..... We deceided to have dinner all nights in other resorts

Beds are hard ..... No animals in the bungalow, good working airconditioning

Room Tip: Take another resort

Mayalay is one of the most recommendable resort on Koh Ngai. We loved the style and the beach just in front. The room was clean, the bungalow very cosy and the restaurant good! We spent new years at Mayalay and just loved this place. We would come back anytime.

I got transferred here since my booked resort had been closed due to a storm. I w the only one here, it was great. The staff, James, Eamon, etc, were awesome. I loved the beach front cottage, was beautiful. A little strange being the solo person here, but was great. Found a a wonderful beach dog who hung around me, he was well trained and I encouraged his hanging around, so not a problem at all. I will definitely return here, glad the other resort turfed me here.

Very expensive restaurant and overpriced rooms, which are not even that nice. I recommend staying in Fantasy resort, which is cheaper, nicer and on the better part of the beach. The island is very nice and in low season you will almost be there alone
