This was the second poshest place in our (v enjoyable, so thx to them) Andaman Sky tour of the region, we finished up here after a spell on Koh Lanta unwinding and a stay at the Vogue in Ao Nang and at the excellent Paradise resort on Koh Yao Noi. The poshest place on our trip was Pimalai on Koh Lanta. The surprising thing was that Mom Tri’s was really quiet compared to the Vogue in Ao nang (we had expected the reverse). Great hotel, we didn’t leave it at all for more than a couple of hours during our stay. When you’re paying the big bucks for a luxury resort, it doesn’t make sense to me to go off day-tripping – I suppose if money’s no object then that would be understandable but that’s not us, I intended to get every pennys’ worth out of my stay at Mon Tri’s, which is exactly what I did.
The staff, food, location and accommodation was excellent and worth all the pennies we paid. If you can afford it then I heartily recommend this as a great place to stay. I can’t comment much on Phuket as we saw little of it. I had read and heard from friends that the night life isn’t what I would like to be taking my wife out on a night out on, so we avoided it and stuck close to the resort, where everything was as clean as a whistle is all senses of the word.
