Stayed in this hotel in September for one week. Had a really nice stay the rooms were very clean and all the staff were very friendly! The pool is across the road from the hotel which we didn't realise but was fine for us. The pool is overlooking Lamai beach but not a very nice part if you walk further... More

Very nice arrival, Staff was friendly and helpful, Breakfast was good. But there is a Street between Hotel and Beach area and at this Pool you have the Noise from the Traffic but it's a very nice area. I come back again.

Nice hotel in great setting although a bit strange with one pool being on the opposite of the road to the resort however pool within the resort was excellent. Breakfast hot selection could be enhanced by greater variety. Staff were the best...obliging and friendly

We stayed here for 4D3N, and unfortunately, our experience was not very positive. I'll start with the good things first. We stayed in the Lamui suite, and the room was really impressive. The furnishing generally looked well maintained and tastefully decorated, and was quite spacious. The bathroom was impressive too, with marble-like furnishings and an elegant bathtub. There were three... More

I stayed here for 4 days with my son in August. We stayed in a suite on a bed and breakfast basis. The suite was huge and absolutely beautiful in its decoration. The huge sofa and large king-size bed were so comfortable! The breakfast every morning was delicious with a good, fresh selection of options. We both thought that this... More

Nice hotel, beautiful sea view, beach and pool (although you have to cross a very busy street to get there, a street you can easily have crossed 5 times by the time the person in charge lets you actually cross it). Beware of communication though! Very friendly staff but if they don't understand you, they all just say yes. That... More

Manathai is a piece of paradise on this beautiful island. My mum and I spent 8 glorious days here and we were sad to say goodbye. First, the staff. Nat and her management team are so incredibly welcoming and are there to ensure that your stay is perfect. The reception staff are so helpful and nothing is too much trouble.... More

I had reservations about Koh Samui having been there 17 years ago and not liking what I saw. Manathai was a super hotel. Colonial style decor and really helpful and friendly staff. The hotel was at the far end of the beach but main Lamai was still easily walkable for those of you wishing to see those particular delights. I... More
