My wife and I stayed at the Mayalay Resort for 4 nights in one of the beach front cottages and we loved it. The location is excellent, lovely beach, very quiet and a great place to relax. The cottage was clean and comfortable and right on edge of the beach. It's not 4 star but perfectly adequate. The food is... More

- WORST of all: they raise puppies to please tourists, but after they are grown they put them on the streets on the mainland as street dogs. And the puppies are not kept well, they have skin diseases. - The Wi-Fi did not work for most of 4 days we were there, even though they kept making promises - The... More

The beach is very pretty with some decent snorkeling just off the beach. If you are looking to get... More

I loved this place as for the atmosphere which is very naturally romantic. Rooms are basic but clean and the restroom is cool in its simplicity and open space. Food is good. Breakfast has a good choice, not so big but good. And dinner is amazing, we had nice fish and curries. The price is average for the island (which... More

The best place to stay on Koh Ngai! Maybe a bit overpriced but the seaview villa are just a step away from the beach. There is a great place to have grilled fish on the south of resort. Make sure you visit Emerald Cave in Koh Mook!:) I would really love to visit Mayalay again and one day will do... More

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... More

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...

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.
