I had a great experience at the Manathai Koh Samui. All the staff were so friendly and helpful, and I thought I got a lot of quality at a low price.

My husband and I enjoyed the stay at your hotel. The staff at breakfast time were so so delightful and the start to the day was so happy. Some of the girls in reception are a little rude.

Overall all hotel staffers are attentive and courteous. I especially appreciated the patient help rendered by the concierge in calling and arranging for my land transfer to the jetty with another travel agent due to my non-speaking of Thai. Room was extremely spacious (way too big for 1) and room service was excellent.

This is hands down one of the best hotels we have stayed in in Thailand (even beats the Banyan Tree in Bangkok). The decor is beautiful, the bed is un-leavable, the room is to die for.
