We stayed at Mai Samui for part of our honeymoon, and are so glad we chose to stay here! The resort is beautiful with a huge, gorgeous infinity pool with bridges, palm trees and greenery all around. We stayed in a pool access room, which was great as we had our own pool patio with a daybed and our own submerged sunbeds. The staff were very polite and helpful. Breakfast was fantastic (I think the best breakfast ever), where you can get omelettes and waffles to order, freshly squeezed fruit juices, hot thai food, exotic fruits, ice cream, desserts and pastries, and so much more....... Having waffles with mango and ice-cream for breakfast was just heavenly!
A few suggestions for improvement - the bathrooms are not fully sealed off, so small insects and lizards can get in through the cracks. This was a bit annoying as we always had to close off the bathroom so that the insects cannot come into the main room. It would be much better if the bathroom windows could be sealed off properly.
Another suggestion is that the toilet cannot flush toilet paper very well. However, this seems to be a problem all around Samui and is probably not specific to this hotel.
The hotel is a bit far away from the main centers, so there are not many restaurants nearby. The Mai pub's food can be hit or miss. There is a nice little beach restaurant called PJ's - just walk to the beach, turn right, and walk for 3-5 minutes. We would recommend this hotel for couples who wish to stay somewhere beautiful and secluded. However, if you plan to spend most of the time sightseeing or partying, you should probably stay somewhere more central.
Overall, we had a great stay, and can't wait to go back again!
