We loved our time at Manathai. I chose Manathai because of the big rooms, it's bathroom and that it was close to the beach. The big room did NOT disappoint nor did the bathroom with it's separate bathtub and shower. The bed was a nice big bed, something we like. The staff were wonderful and friendly. The food at PadThai... More

Couldn't ask for better service. Left my passport in the safe and they organised to have it sent to the other side of the country free overnight so I could get in my flight the next day. Amazing staff that deserve a pay rise. Please tip them as they don't get paid what they deserve

Great hotel with two pools. One pool just across the road which has sea views. Security helps you cross the road which is helpful. Room was clean and was equipped with what you needed. Hotel staff friendly and helpful with booking our transfer to koh pha-Nagn, the boat and our transfer back to the airport once back on koh samui.... More

A nice hotel with two swimming pools. One is directly on the beach. Staff is great. Breakfast is great. There is an Irish pub for some bears in the evening. We had an massage that was amazing and really not expensive. The rooms are nice and big enough, to bad that there is no bathtub.

The manathai was a great resort experience. The two pools were always clean and friendly and there weren't a lot of kids running around. While everyone here definitely seems to be running on Thai time you soon learn to adjust. Our rooms were immaculate and beautifully styled. There is plenty to do around the resort.
