We recently got married in Koh Samui and stayed at Manathai for one week leading up to the event. Our extended family and friends stayed with us (roughly 30+ people) at the resort. Although large parts of our stay were washed out, the Manathai was an excellent choice for our holiday. The resort has a unique colonial look and feel...

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. The only negative is that we found the cost of THB 900 one-way for the airport...
