We had an interconnecting room on the ground floor our 2 children loved being able to safely roam to and fro the pool/beach and room. The rooms are large in size and... More

Stayed 6 day at Manathai, it would have been a pleasure to have stayed longer. The resort is right on the beach and has a wonderful big pool just steps from the beach, plenty of sun lounges right on the beach. The accommodation is excellent, we stayed in a pool villa with a lovely balcony (all the suits have very... More

Dear Gwen H, Thank you so much for the lovely review. Like the majority of our guests, you seem to appreciate what we have to offer, at a value price. The Pool Villas are nice, aren't they. Unfortunately we only have four of them so advance bookings are recommended. Hope to see you back here. With best regards/John Gill More

Dear FerdyMul, Thanks for the great review, much appreciated. Sorry about the salt water issue, but this was the result of a prolonged drought and the local water supply (not just to this hotel) was quite salty for a few weeks. All is back to normal now. Best regards/John Gill More

Parents and two teens, upgraded from balcony rooms to adjoining garden rooms at the end of block 4. We travel a lot, so have some basis for comparing. This is definitely 3 - 4 star.

Manathai Khao Lak has surprised us. Not only by its friendly staff, but also with the fact that Thai locals can run their restaurants right beside it. Small issues were quickly solved and we enjoyed ourselves immensely. Great cooking class! Compliments to chef Kai and GM John. Keep up the good work!

Dear susan t, Thanks indeed for your lovely review. I have no idea what the issue was between your sister and chef, but please be assured that he is not rude, and I think that there may have been some miscommunication.
