Well, an awesome place to stay in Samui! The food was good and the room was excellent with the perfection fragrance! The only thing was that we had a garden room, but unfortunately there were little grass only which doesn't seem like a garden at all! There are 2 pools, but the one by the beach is pretty cool! Excellent...

Stayed one week here at the start of our vacation, and were pleasently surprised. The hotel itself I might not consider any more than 4* which also is their rating. But the service is just OUTSTANDING! They welcome you with a big smile and really make an effort to make sure you have a good time. The staff all over...

A great stay at this resort, lovely clean room and clean swimming pool and communal areas. very attentive and polite staff, nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was great, lots of variety. My only moan would be not having better tea and coffee making facilities in the rooms- i.e. I hate creamer!!

Good staff, clean room, excellent location just right beside main road, there is a 7-11 right opposite the hotel. Nice sea view and pool, we enjoy the facilities so much. Will definitely go back if able to travel to samui again.

Beautiful hotel grounds, pools; attentive, excellent staff; delicious food from restaurants. Drinks are good but expensive. The beach was very disappointing, unswimmable in front of the hotel. I feel they should mention that just because they are beachfront, you will not be able to swim there. Although the sea it looked nice in the poolscape, you had to walk about...

On arrival we were informed as we had booked 2 rooms we had been upgraded to a suite, on opening the door our jaws dropped. The suite was huge and we couldn't believe our luck. Never stayed in anything like it in our lives. It was amazing, so thank you so much Manathai for the upgrade. The hotel was clean,...
