As soon as we pulled up to Manathai We knew that our time here was going to be amazing! We were greeted by the most generous staff members who, after our smooth checking in process Showed us to our suite. The door unlocked and we were wowed Immediately - this room was incredible!
The suite was elegantly designed and styled with a white, blue and green colour scheme. Its walls held up Thai artwork and the tables were filled with Thai ornaments. Surrounding the room were white panelled doors which led you to tiny balconies all revealing their own individually decorated flower beds - it felt as though we were in France! The bedroom and living area were both interconnected and this meant you could completely open up / divide the room using the glass sliding doors (perfect for if someone wanted to sleep and the other wanted to stay up watching TV). The bathroom in the suite was gorgeous! It was made up of marble tiles and had a huge bath which overlooked the entire room when the white shutters were opened. We were lucky to have clear blue skies on the days we stayed at Manathai. Due to the marvellous weather we spent the majority of our time by the beach / pool soaking up the sunshine.
The beach is Immediately across the road where Manathai's facilities continue on. Here, there are one of two pools, the gym, kids club and the Waterline restaurant (1 of 4 Restaurants at Manathai). We ate our dinner at this restaurant which was beautifully lit up and right on the beach front. After a relaxing day we were treated with a 60 minute aroma massage at the spa resorts which was divine! Following this we went for a short walk to Lamai beach the which is one of Koh Samui's most popular beaches. Along this beach there are ample beach clubs and on Sundays Lamai has huge markets, the which you must go to! It was perfect once we had finished her to Easily walk back to the resort without needing to spend money on a taxi.
After a sleep we did not want to end we made our way to breakfast. Take note all Aussie travellers ... Manathai Koh Samui has vegemite in their breakfast buffet! Our stay at Manathai Koh Samui was something we never wanted to be over. The resort had it all: the rooms, the facilities, the location and most kind staff members.
