“Best Rawai has to offer.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2013

My wife and I spent 7 nights at this lovely “boutique” hotel. Clean comfortable rooms, nice pool, western breakfast, and a cute little (quite) bar. Mona the perfect hostess, arranging for tours and taxies. Bob was ready to have a beer and just talk when we were in the mood for conversation. This family run hotel pays attention to detail when it comes to meeting the needs of their quest.

Not close to the beach, but rent a motorbike or bicycles (Bob will help you with that) and everything is accessible.

Check out the “Deer Hart” bar for great Happy Hour prices, and a cool bunch of transplanted locals, ready for a game of pool or to provide information about restaurants and site seeing.
We definitely return given the chance.

Room Tip: If unhappy with your room Bob will do his best to accomodate.

I stayed recently at Monaburi Boutique Resort. The hospitality and friendly staff made my stay feel like I was apart of a family. The pool and surroundings were always so meticulously cared for. I loved the pool and quiet moments to read and relax. Night markets, the beaches, shopping, restaurants, massages, sight seeing are all part of the Thailand experience. Rob and Mon were perfect hosts and Coco was my favourite. Monaburi in Rawai is a perfect little gem hideaway in Thailand to rejuvenate body and soul from the hectic lives we lead in our modern world of fast food and even faster lifestyles. I loved it and know you will to.

This is a hotel rather than a "resort" and it is located away from the beaches so you will need to rent a motorbike to get around although Rawai pier and nearby restaurants and bars are only a 10 minute walk. The rooms are clean, spacious and well equipped and the pool a decent size. The service is friendly and efficient and the owners are very helpful. All round an excellent choice for a stay in this area.

We have stayed at the Monaburi for our 3rd time now, already looking to book up for our 4th return!.
The Monaburi is perfectly situated in Rawai, close to the beach, lovely restaurants and plenty of shops.
The Monaburi is kept immaculate, it is in a quiet location with a lovely pool with a jacuzzzi, and large comfortable lovely rooms, The Monaburi also serves a delicious breakfast and has a bar.
Basically it feels like home to us..You couldnt ask for better service, Mon, Bob, Ti and the staff we cant wait to see you again. I would recommend the Monaburi to anyone who wants to stay in the most friendliest, fantastic hotel in Rawai, (Best in the world in our opinion!). The staff will attend to any need you have and go that extra mile for their guests which makes the Monaburi such a special place to stay as well as being such a beautiful hotel to stay in....

Room Tip: All rooms are fab, poolside rooms are nice to open the doors and dive straight in the pool!, if stay...

We stayed at Monaburi only for one night. Room was spacious and very clean. Very good wifi connection, TV, A/C and a beautiful pool with jacuzzi in the garden. It's about 10 mins by foot to the Rawai Pier and nearby is the Tesco Lotus. Hotel owner is a really good man, who found time to speak with every person stayed in the hotel. Highly recommended!

Nice poolside area on ground floor, compact but very serviceable good outdoor pavillion for meals,drinks or to escape the sun. Rooms modern well appointed and clean, my only criticism is that the drapes let in too much light from security lights after dark, which as I am a light sleeper was a challenge. Mona and Robert were great hosts.

Room Tip: Poolside great only 4 available
