The Lamai Suite was absoulutley perfect, spacious, clean and perfect for a family of four. The location is perfect quiet and away from bars and restaurants (but within walking distance) and the beach is across the road. I would definitely stay at Manathai again.

Huge elegant rooms. Great both for a romantic vacation and for family vacation. The best stuff service in all Thailand. Nice breakfast but not great for vegetarians. Nice pool. Small beach. Be aware of the activities in the pool at the evenings.
