My wife and I had a most enjoyable holiday at the Manathai for 9 nights February/ March 2017. We cannot speak highly enough of the Manathai. Everything you could wish for as an idyllic holiday. Excellent hotel and facilities; superb beach location (at the bottom of the hotel garden is a long, quiet "Robinson Crusoe" beach), super room (even the...

We stayed 7 nights in a garden view room and would highly recommend this resort. The room was large and comfortable, the bed was very comfortable. The buffet breakfast was first class: a large selection of the 'usual fare', including both Asian and European food, but several items were changed daily to give some variety, a good egg station and...

It´s been the second stay in this hotel. The staff is so friendly and everything is so clean. The beach is so quiet and lovely. Everything about this hotel is fantastic and we really enjoyed our stay. The restaurant is a bit expensive compared to others. But if you want to have an excellent meal go to the restaurant called...

Me and my girlfriend stayed there for about two weeks in February 2017. The staff welcomed us with a drink, carried our luggages and let us check in early, what was much apprechiated. The hotel is beautifuly located in the nature of Khao Lak, the buildings are well designed and match the Thai style. The hotel has a private beach,...

A great hotel that ticked almost of all the boxes. We stayed for 11 days in mid February 2017. One of the most relaxing holidays we have been on, and we go away 4 to 5 times a year. The room was immaculate and cleaned to a high standard each day. Bathroom great, huge shower. The staff were brilliant in...

We have just returned from a two week stay at this hotel and would fully recommend this hotel to any future travelers. Situated about 15 minutes outside of Khao Lak it is a reasonably small hotel situated on the beach with excellent facilities. We were booked on a B/B basis and didn't actually eat in the hotel other than breakfast...

The food was great, the massages were plenty and our group was very well taken care of. The night check in attendant was very strict NOT to let me check in early unless I paid, so be aware... If you arrive early, there will most likely be a fee depending upon your arrival time, but everything else worked very well....
