My boyfriend and I stayed here April 2015. The staff were brilliant and nothing was ever to much trouble. When we arrived they all waited to greet us and gave us a free complimentary juice. They took our bags to our room and were always so helpful. The rooms were amazing and just like the pictures we also had free... More

Bad Points: We stayed at Manathai Koh Samui for three nights in February. We had never visited Lamai before. The location turned out to be very disappointing. It was a long walk along the dark rather dangerous main road to Lamai in the evening for restaurants and nightlife. The description and images of the hotel were very confusing. The hotel... More

Our stay at Manathai Ko Samui was definitely one to remember! The staff made us feel so warm, welcomed with their friendly attitude and bright smiles. We received exceptional service and attention from everyone including staff and restaurant workers. The renovations did not bother us as we got a room upgrade to a beautiful suite. Would stay there again if... More

Beautiful place to stay and the people were so nice and friendly. Although there were renovations happening while we were there, we were upgraded to a better suite and were treated like royalty. Would go back again, if I was to stay in Koh Samui again 😊
