I stayed here for a few nights with work and was very happy with the rooms. They are spacious with a galley kitchen and balcony. The bedroom opens up onto the lounge room but can be sectioned off with a roller door. It has a relaxed holiday beach vibe. The pool area is fantastic. A great place to relax with... More

Seems like the mantra enjoys raising prices when appropriate. E.g 3 times the usual price when on a public holiday. Do not offer breakfast or meals. Have to walk into the club to grab a meal. Very inconvenient. Fight for parking with patrons of the club. If an extra person is to stay. Extra 40 dollars to unlock a chain... More

Wonderful hotel, great location right next to the water. Not much to do in Ettalong except relax, but lucky it's a short drive to many other great towns and there's a great boat hire place down the road from the Mantra (called Anderson's I believe). Stayed in a 1 bedroom spa suite with my partner, the room was a great... More

Stayed 2 nights, and really enjoyed the apartment. Really spacious and well equipped. The Kitchen facilities meant we could partly self cater, which offsets the extra cost of the room (we paid just under $300 for 2 nights. Very comfy bed and huge deck overlooking pool and sea. Only reason that it loses 1 star is that the pool was... More

My partner and I have made a habit of staying at the Mantra Ettalong as it was our very first trip away together. The rooms are so beautiful and so comfortable. id recommend not getting the smaller room overlooking the back road. It is perfectly located and the eateries surrounding are lovely, particularly the Thai! We love the walking track... More

We just spent 6 nights here at nearly 1900 dollars and were very unhappy to arrive and find that the pool could not be used the entire stay. No one mentioned this when we booked on Sept 14 and we would have booked elsewhere if we had known as we have 3 very active boys who were looking forward to... More

I had been wanting to stay at this resort for years and we were pleasantly surprised by our room. It had a balcony, lounge area, kitchenette and spa bath. The resort had free parking underneath and some great local restaurants in easy walking distance (thanks to the mantra umbrellas you can borrow). The location is lovely and you can easily... More
