We enjoyed our nine day stay. The room was nicely decorated, but clearly not as large as advertised on the booking sites. You could draw the curtains to get the room completely dark. The bathroom was clean with hot water in the shower. The balcony was like an extra room in the evening when the kids were asleep, but could...

I stayed at the Manathai for 5 days in August 2016. The weather at the island was a little humid at that time of the year. The rooms in the resort are clean but there is this persistent stale smell. Loved the pools and the view. The meals at the restaurant are highly priced. Staff is friendly and well mannered....

The rooms were clean and spacious. The staff was nice, and the swimming pool and private small beach were fantastic. The location is not the best, but in this island we could not ask for more. The breakfast could definitely be improved especially in the quality of the hot food. We had an awful experience with some group of russians...

This hotel is closer to Lamai than Chaweng where majority of the action is. It offers a free shuttle to and from chaweng which was extremely useful to explore Samui. The pools are excellent but he Hotel restaurants are a little pricey. The hammocks and beanbags by the beach were excellent. I loved the weekly movie that they screen for...

We were really happy with our recent stay at the Manathai. Was a beautiful set up, the staff were very helpful and friendly. The breakfast was amazing and we were truly spoilt for choice with things to choose from. Only negative for us was the WiFi barely worked in our room and the bathroom sometimes smelt. We think this was...

Stayed here for 5 nights and had a great time. Stayed in a Lamai suite which was spacious and had great aircon. Bed was slightly on the hard side which didnt bother us but might bother some people. Rooms were cleaned regularly but sheets weren't changed over which again didnt bother us but may bother some people. Beach across the...
