The longer we stayed the more we fell in love with this hotel. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. They go out of their way to greet and strike up a conversation. There's even child care services! The buffet breakfast had a good variety of foods. Rooms were clean and well kept. There's two pools. The only let down is... More

Very good hotel. Very very clean. Good breakfast with many choices. Children enjoyed the children club. Beach is not for swimming but great pool. Restaurants a the hotel are good but expensive. Also the restaurant at the pool. A hotel to come back to.

We stayed 4 nights at Manathai and were absolutely loved everything. The hotel is a 3-minute drive away from the most beautiful beach of the island, Crystal Bay and about 15 minutes from the busy Chaweng area, ideal to disconnect but not too isolated. We booked a suite which is really spacious and decorated in a tasteful beach-style way, with... More

From the moment we arrived we felt welcome. Every member of staff seemed to enjoy working here and were super friendly in every instance. The rooms were well designed and very clean (be careful of the step down to the bathroom, which I stubbed my toe on a few times), beds comfortable and silent. Food in the Thai restaurant was...
