“Our honeymoon in paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2012

I and my husband spend 3 nights in a lovely hotel with amazing pool. We had a great time and enjoyed our stay here. Villa was clean and comfortable.Hotel was peace and relax. Friendly staff always help us and recommended what to do in island.
Breakfast was nice and staff was good. We spend a few times for dinner and we were not disappointed. The food was very delicious!
They also have a shuttle free to Lamai beach and free wifi around in hotel.
We will recommend our friends and sure that we will come to say hello at Montra again.

Room Tip: Montra Deluxe is more private.

A lovely place to stay! The staff were friendly and couldn't do enough for you when you needed. Su, was fantastic and gave us plenty of tips and ideas on what to do and where to go, she even remembered what we had for breakfast every morning! We would definitely consider staying there again because of the hospitality. The only draw back for us was that the resort does not back onto a beach and you need to walk or drive.

Montra accomodations are basically villas with separate room and living. Loved the pool access room and you can swim around the property. The property are surrounded by gardens, but looks like alot of maintenance needed around it. Its rather quiet at night since there's not many people around. Breakfast menu was fine and personally prepared to your order. You can walk and shop around Lamai beach plus get something to eat. Parking is scarce around the beach area if you're renting a car. Tesco is near so you can get some supplies.

Having first visited Montra a couple of years ago it was great to be back. It is such a peaceful setting you can’t help but relax and even though it was full we rarely saw any of the other guests. The gardens are lovely, the villas spacious and comfortable and the staff pleasant and helpful. We like the way it is set away from the center of Lamai and enjoy the walk in but tend to get a cab back. The food at Montra is very good but we also like to head for the Chillin Bar on Lamai beach for a couple of cocktails and then into the center to the Big Wave open restaurant for some great seafood or Salathai for good Thai. I'm sure we will return at some point.

We stayed here on our honeymoon in 2008 and returned now in 2012 - it is absolutely an outstanding place to visit if you want peace and quiet and a really relaxing stay. The staff are so so friendly and will go out of their way to make you happy. The food and bar are great and reasonably priced too. There is a huge supermarket nearby which is very handy for any 'western requirements' and food shopping. The swimming pool is first class - we enjoyed staying in the premises swimming, eating and relaxing rather than going out or to the beach.
They pick you up personally from the airport - free wifi is available at the hotel.

We are here now sheltering from a thunderstorm. This place is so lovely we felt compelled to use the free wifi to write a review.
We have been travelling around Thailand for the past 2weeks. Although we are not impressed with Ko samui at all, this hotel stands out as the best we have stayed in over our travels accross Thailand. The staff are lovely and the manager offering free lifts in to town negates the issue of the hotel being located slightly away from the town.

Tucked away from the relative hustle and bustle of Koh Samui this hotel was an absolute oasis in our trip around Thailand. Staff were very helpful, food was good, but the grounds are just awesome. Only a handful of stand alone suites surrounded by tropical gardens and cool pool that winds around the rooms.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms have their own entrance to the pool, looked like fun.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Montra is a small independent hotel located in Lamai. To enter you have to duck through a pair of solid old wooden gates and, as the gates clunk closed behind you, you find yourself in a magical peaceful garden, you feel yourself relaxing and you have the feeling you are somewhere special. Our quiet hillside location, one kilometre from Lamai Beach, allows us to give you holiday lodgings in a beautiful villa for a price better than the tiny room at the beach. Being a nine villa property means Montra is able to offer a more personal touch with staff knowing you by name and learning your preferences whilst still respecting your privacy. Our nine luxurious villas are situated in lush tropical gardens dominated by an elegant swimming pool. All villas are 63 square meters and offer a master bedroom with a high ceiling, top quality bed and linens; the living room comes equipped with all the modern amenities; the 14 square meters bathroom offers both an open shower with a bathtub designed for two with twin headrests and double sinks. ... more   less
