Currently staying at Manathai Koh Samui @ Lamai. Fantastic colonial hotel and the staff are very friendly and helpful. We were given a nice quiet room on the ground floor with a balcony facing the hotel pool. There's another pool just across the hotel that faced the beach. Perfect for a getaway with friends!!!

The highlight of our stay in Koh Samui was the Manathai, the staff were great, they arranged our day trip without any fuss,. The room was spacious and the pool facilities were private and relaxing. The restaurant staff were delightful and were eager to practise their English speaking skills with us. Would recommend to all.
