“Idyllic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago

A truly pleasing and enjoyable resort, from the plush comfort of the rooms to the delectable culinary experiences. The staff go beyond to please with Thai style service. There are many added details and touches that make everything very personal. Situated directly on the beach, still in a natural state and secluded which allows for private sunbathing and enjoyment for guests.
Peaceful for the relaxed oriented, romantic for the newlywed and also accommodates to families, what more could you ask.
I can't wait to return to this top notch luxury experience.

Room Tip: We experienced two room types, a suite in the main building which had two very large rooms with a te...

We stayed in rh very lovely villa Canna which has a small pool and a sea view. It was magical! The staff here really make you feel very welcome from the moment you arrive at the resort to checking in to your room. The maids do great things with towels - well done Wow Wow and Nim... The team in reception, Pey. Poy, Fern and Duean all speak very good English and can't do enough to help. Pey in particular was really helpful - make him Employee of the Month! Food is excellent - the breakfast is very inviting with proper freshly squeezed fruit and vegetable juices - try the beetroot, it's delicious...At the pool Nong is always there with her lovely smile. The best bit of all is the fabulous beach....and it's very quiet and peaceful.....take the walk to the right all the way to the end of the cape....it's about 90 minutes but well worth it. To the left about 1 kilometre away you have some beach restaurants and massage places - some are very good. Try Cat and Mammas. We can highly recommend the Manathai......go there.....you will not be disappointed.....we are back in the UK in cold miserable weather wishing we were back at the Manathai!!!.

Room Tip: Go for one of the pool villas.

From the first impression, the quality of food service, friendly staff prepared to go out of their way to meet any request, accomodation and attention to detail throughout, this must rate as one of the best resort experiences ever!

And all of this whilst still in start up mode. We can't wait to come back and experience it all again when the hotel is fully operational.

Room Tip: We had a suite which was large with separate lounge and dining. Our daughter and family were in one...

Our stay on 9 - 23 December 2014 at Manathai Khao Lak was unforgettable.
The resort is located in a peaceful and beautiful Bangsak Beach. The swimming pool and its surroundings is calm and pleasant. We took long walks on the beach almost every day and it was relaxing.
Our room was very comfortable and stylish. Breakfast was tasty and healthy.
The staff was always friendly and smiling and helpful. We definitely love this place, me and my daughter. I promise, we will be back soon....

Manathai Khao Lak gave me a wonderful moment with my family during our stay on 20 December 2014. The beach is quite long, clean and private. I love to walk along the beach and watch the sunset. Staffs are friendly and helpful. Food is excellent with variety of stations for breakfast. I believe I will get back there again next year.
