I stayed in Tanote Bay montalay resort for a month. A very quiet and friendly resort. The beach is uncrowded and quiet with some of the best snorkeling on the island. The food in the restaurant is of a really good quality and the staff are friendly. The taxi service into town was very reliable and taxis back to the... More

Montalay Beach Resort is situated in the quiet beautiful bay Tanote - a lovely place to spend a few days or more. Two weeks in my case. I did my Advanced and Rescue Diver course here. Robert and Jonathon are excellent instructors that will teach you how to dive the proper way. It’s always best to learn from passionate people,... More

For the price you pay and the service this place could give a lot of places that rate themselves as 5 star some pointers! The place is ideallic, clean, comfortable, luxurious even and we were staying in one of the cheaper cabins at approx. 20 GBP per night. The food and service at the restaurant was very good. The dining... More

This is the best location for off the beach snorkelling in koh tao for the month of June, as the wind blows s/w every day. There are plenty of resorts to choose from on this bay right at the waters edge but montalay is the only one with a pool. The rooms are very good, the staff is great, the... More

We stayed here for 3 nights before moving on to do our open water diving course on the other side of the island. It was a great stay and the food was really good. I personally think that the snorkelling here is the best on the island too having also gone to the west and south sides of Koh Tao.... More

We had a hut in the beautiful gardens and although quite basic it had everything we needed. A great shower with hot water, clean towels every day. Complimentary drinking water supplied each day after our room was serviced. Tea and coffee making facilities. Air-conditioning and a fan and an abundance of peace and quiet. It even had a few things... More

We stayed here for 4 nights and enjoyed it a lot. We stayed for the snorkelling and were not disappointed. The road to the resort is pretty hard to get to but they do have a shuttle and the first ride is free so they picked us up at the pier. There isn't a lot to do here so if... More

Got off the ferry to be greeted by the usual taxi scrummage. An unexpected sign with our names was held up by an enthusiastic guy with a modern resort 4*4 ute. We didn't remember organising transfers but I think the hotel does it automatically. The trip to the resort is an amazing journey over a twisting narrow steep road that... More

I stayed at montalay for One week in June with My boyfriend. The pros: The hotel was nice and clean, it felt like a jungle Laguna. The room we rented was big and had a big balcony. They had a good selection of TV Chanel's, so you had something to do during rainy days. They had a nice and big... More
