The location of this place is perfect. You practically have the beach to yourselves. Our bungalow was great, and had everything we needed. There isn't a great deal of restaurants around but the hotel serves food and there are a few near by. Perfect for a few days to switch off, and chill with a book on the beach!

We booked on AGODA and was given a decent/fair rate of $56, when you check in, they advise that this doesn't include air conditioning - only a fan. If you're willing to pay 700 TBH per night, they will then give you the key that allows the air conditioning to function. The property itself is well maintained, and the villa... More

From the time we climbed onto the back of the jeep to get to the hotel, we knew we were going somewhere special. The staff were welcoming and friendly. The room was spacious and clean. The hotel is right next to beautiful Tanote Bay, with its fantastic snorkeling and diving opportunities. Breakfast was o.k.. There was a nice pool but... More

This place was ok. Had lots of pros and cons which balanced the experience. Pros were that the room was big for the price we paid, staff were nice, and room came with decent basic amenities like a kettle and daily free water. Decent pool, beach had clear water but was quite dirty. Not exactly paradise. A big con for... More

We stayed in an 'Eco Cottage' for 4 nights in April 2015. The cottages are part of the Montalay Beach Resort which is one of a few small resorts located on Tanute Bay on the quieter east coast of Koh Tao. Firstly, the Eco Cottages are excellent value, and even in the most basic cottage (with a fan only and... More

Ive been here many times allready and I just love this lil spot on the globe. It is a great place to be at if you are looking for relaxation, diving and beautiful nature. If you are a partyanimal this is not for you, sense the parties are at the other side of the island. This quiet and very cozy... More

Great snorkeling. Good restaurant and alternative restaurants close by. Excellent french fries. Very nice 'infinity pool'. Very modern rooms. Large balcony. Cons: Wifi cuts out every two minutes in room.... More

We went to Montalay Diving for a advance cours and were more than happy with our choice! The diving spots were incredible, the group size perfect (way better than the other diving schools we saw at koh tao) and our diving teacher robert was very experienced and a great guy. Best diving experience for me! And the bay is beautiful... More

We returned to this lovely hotel and were not at all disappointed! Great location, lovely beach, good snorkelling and helpful and friendly staff. Our room was on the top floor with a sea view and was spacious with an excellent bathroom and a good size balcony with sea views. Breakfast is good with choices of hot food and fresh fruit... More

A superb room with beautiful tree capped balcony. Very peaceful place and helps you relax. This hotel is only ideal for you if you want to escape the world for few days. It is very far from the 'happening' part of the town, so if that's what you want, this isn't a place for you. The hotel has this great... More
