              Great hotel with the best beach in koh ngai Breakfast is great.. much better than over-rated Fantasy resort. Fantasy resort is crowded and noisy. Mayalay Resort has the best beach as it has the least rocks which make us easy to swim without stamping our feet on the rocks. The villas are provided with kettle and coffee tea.. and they provided us lots of towels. Mayalay Resort know how to take care of the guests. Even its breakfast is much more delicious than fantasy resort. We really prefer staying at Mayalay Resort than Fantasy Resort. Fantasy resort is over rated and crowded with guests.

              no chairs!!- my only real problem was that they have no real chairs on the front porch of the bungalow - the beach recliners provided are not what I, and I expect a lot of other people, want to 'sit' in when not sleeping or doing some activity - a real chair of some kind, even the cheap white plastic ones, would be very welcome. I am serious, this alone will keep me from returning here - when I want to sit outside comfortably and read, or just sit and think, I want a chair to do that on.

              Overbooked but niceUnfortunately the hotel had missed our booking, which meant that we could only have our bungalaws for one night. These were simple and nice, except for the bathrooms, which were pretty worn out. The location is perfect, in the good end of the beach. Breakfastbuffet needs more attention, since it lacked refilling and we had to ask several times for fruit and bread. We were relocated to their sisterhotel at the end of the beach. Upgraded to a beachcottage for the inconveinience. Very nice! Good service to make it possible.

              If you are looking for a luxury retreat you’ll be disappointed but if you are looking for an authentic closed to the beach resort you got it! Straight forward accommodation without any clutter, direct on the beach. Great people especially the lady at the reception is just outstanding. We booked a small trip as well and it was a great value for money. I can only recommend this resort. Dining options are plenty on the entire island.

              Great location, not so great food”

              We loved the location of the resort and spent hardly any time lying around on the beach because of all the activities available to us in the National Marine Park. The snorkeling was awesome. The room was simple and clean, but the mattress was uncomfortable; you could feel all of the springs. In general the place looked a bit run down. The food was sometimes great and sometimes terrible. The free breakfast was nice, but later we ordered shrimp fried rice and the shrimp had been pre-cooked and tasted extremely old. I couldn't eat it. We ended up eating lunch and dinners at the Fantasy Resort down the beach. The last thing we wanted was to get food poisoning. I would go back just for the location but I'd bring snacks as everything on the island is overpriced.

The girls at reception and at the restaurant are so nice and lovely and they speak very good English. A big thank you to the workers as well who helped us taking a lizard our of our bungalow. I will definately go back there.

              Absolutely FANTASTIC!”

              Most beautiful beach, with the most breathtaking views. Great and friendly staff.

              We totally LOVED our stay! The bungalow had everything we needed, A/C, mosquito net and a two step walk to the most beautiful beach I have ever seen! The nights were quiet, there was a live performer on some nights and that music could be heard but not later than 10pm. (The guy was fabulous, best hope he is performing during your stay! :) ) Since the bungalow is not completely sealed there were the occasional mosquitos, but it did not bother us due to the net over our bed, also since the bungalow was a little open air the sounds of the surrounding nature could be heard inside, which was nice. The staff was lovely, they were so attentive and caring. The foos at the restaurant was fabulous, be sure to try the chicken in garlic and pepper. Will be returning most definitely!! Tip: Also try Koh Ngai camping, lousy camping bur great food!!

              Koh Ngai is a very quiet island, so if you want to relax this hotel is perfect. The rooms are spacious and well equipped, air con, fridge, western toilets, decent shower. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The Spa is very good. The snokerling just off the beach was also good. The food here is very god but is one of the more expensive places to eat on this island.

              spa and restaurant

              our last 5 days out of a 03 week trip to thailand was intended to be something special and it certainly was during our stay at the "mayalay" . we opted fo the beach front sea maya and were rewarded with room, fully air con and seperate fan with large bed and spacious bathroom, cleaned every day and free water and juises stocked in the fridge. for those that enjoy the life of pamper they need look no further than the "spa" with its excelent comprehensive his and hers treatment menu, the restaurant served an excellent breakfast and value lunch and evening meals , the beach is clean and also has other resorts close at hand if you wish to venture out . the management team were helpfull and staff very attentive at all times ...a place i would concider revisiting

              A nice hotel on a nice island”

              Nice clean and friendly

              One of the few hotels on Ngai that open during the low (green) season. Bungalows are nice, clean and comfortable. The overall area is well maintained, personnel is friendly and you feel that your money are well spent.

              Wonderful Place”

              Right on the beach, and very serviceminded staff..

              I simply loved it. Very relaxed place with a stunning view. No noise, just the sound of nature. I had a cottage in the front row, and loved the way the hut was build. For nine days I didn`t wear any shoes, and because of low season, I almost had it all to myself.I will for sure be back, as soon as I can. The food, well, I ate at the nearby Fantasy Resort, it was a lot better.

              the best location among all the resorts. Great Spa facing the sea

              i had a very good time there. unfortunately because for the end of the low season ( the resort was nearly to close for june month for maintenance ) there were a lack of facilities: e.g. the massage staff wasn't available all the days and some plates in the menu weren't available.

              great location, good service”

              location

              The room is simply nice but because the bathroom is partly open, mosquitoes can get in and if not careful when opening the door from the bedroom to bathroom, they will swarm in and give you a itchy night. Well, the resort seems to know the problem, they provide a mosquito net. Another drawback is expensive food (for Thai standard). The seafood is sold in grams not a kilo as on the mainland. So it is not very good for a big family. But the sea in front of the resort is perfect for a family with small kids because it is rather flat, not steep and the sea always calm. No television, though so it is for a hideaway.
