I love this hotel, so much so that I didn't leave it for the full four days of my break. When I first arrived the room I had smelled a bit funny and the Manager came to me straight away to offer me a complimentary upgrade. When she opened the door to my new room I was blown away by... More

I read that this is a new resort OR a recently newly bought one. All I have to say is that the grounds are really nice. The section by the beach is nice - although the beach itself is quite awful - nothing they can do about that. Here is where I have an issue. The food! You have nice... More

This resort located in Lamai beach, approx 15-20mins walk to the Lamai town/ nightmarket, resort provides free shuttle bus to Chaweng Beach (10 am leave and 4pm return). Beach is muddy but the pool was right on the beach so we just spent and swam in the pool. We booked Deluxe Balcony, the room was clean, cozy and the comfortable... More

The staff and service are impeccable! The facilities are beautiful and amenities lovely! I can't say enough about this place. My suite is huge, gorgeous and well-appointed. The property has a tree-covered mountain as a backdrop and the sea in the front. One needs only to cross the street, assisted by crossing guards who stop traffic to ensure your safety,... More

“Service from the Heart” is how I would describe our recent 4-night stay at the Manathai Hotel. We were a family of five – my wife, my brother and my parents all in and above 30s. When my agent booked us at the Manathai, I was honestly a little sceptical. This is was my wife and my second visit to... More

Stayed here for 4 nights as arranged by my customer. Frankly i did not spend much time in the hotel but still felt pretty enjoyed with the breakfast, room cleanliness and comforts as well as the awesome services provided by the hotel staffs. Another plus point is you really can feel the thai hospitality in this hotel Perhaps i guess... More

We are 8 weeks into our travels and never have we stayed in one place so long. We initially booked 3 nights and ended up staying 7 nights. Even if we stay in the same island/city, we would usually move into another area to experience different restaurants, beaches etc but the staff and many other things made us not want... More

Husband booked hotel by mistake and I'm glad he did. Staff were so very friendly and willing to help, assisted us in many areas and requests. But apart from managers, not many speak or understand English very well. Can see some are trying to learn. All seem very happy with where they work. Great attitudes. Was really impressed that after... More

I remember staying at this picturesque resort on no less than two previous occasions some two and three years ago. Loved the place then and love the new look now.
