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 slippers, bath robes and flip flops. Everything was so clean too. The pool was incredible right on the beach and was so nice sat in the pool looking out to the beach. There was another pool in the hotel too which was also nice. They were both quiet and excellent bar service. Manathai really did make mine and my boyfriends holiday we loved it. It was a little bit of a walk to the restaurants and nightlife but this was not a problem as was cheap to get taxis or higher motorbikes. The staff also offered a free service every day at 10 and 4 for a free drop off into the town centre but this really wasn't a problem as they had 3 amazing restaurants at the hotel so you didn't really need to leave. There was an Irish bar on site, a Thai place and a coffee and cafe type thing. They were all beautiful and just down the road they did street food and a few more Thai places and a spa. I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting koh samui. It was the best 4/5 star that we had stayed in our whole trip around Thailand.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Manathai Samui creates the ambiance of cultured elegance and dreamy nostalgia as it welcomes guests. It combines the truly unique concept of both Colonial style luxury and tropical seaside resort. Revive images of living by the sea in olden times, when life is slow and peaceful and dwellings are airy against the backdrop of quiet sea. A stay at this residence is such a happy combination of the old and new as one comes to experience the joys of the beach in the world today and the sentimental yearning for a return to the past as craved by many. Distinctively the best of both worlds can only happen at Manathai Samui, on the beautiful beach of Lamai, Koh Samui. **NB this resort is undfer renovation now until December 2014** ... more less
