“Escape to paradise”
Reviewed February 5, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

After staying 2 nights in busy Bangkok it was bliss to walk into Villa Manta and see the amazing sea views, with peace calm and tranquility. I learnt to swim in the amazing infinity pool, jumping in at any opportunity I could. My husband tried the kayaks in the sea.
The housekeeper Mai is an incredible cook and nothing was too much trouble. If we wanted to stay by the pool all day, Mai would shop and prepare a meal for us for a reasonable fee and well worth it. Her husband Nui makes fantastic margaritas!
A picture of the evening sunset is now my screensaver to remind me of the beauty of the place.
The rooms are bright and airy with air conditioning and you wake up to that amazing view across the bay.
We stayed for 7 nights and this was a great location to visit Fishermans village, Chaeweng, the Big Buddha and to just chill and relax. I would love to come back again to this very special place.

“Amazing sunsets!”
Reviewed July 17, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Beautiful home, we can't wait to go back. We spent 2 weeks at Villamanta in April 2016 with our 2 sons. The weather was amazing, the staff were outstanding. Beautiful pool, the views and sunsets were gorgeous. Great location, peaceful and quiet and the town is a quick and easy drive. Lots of things to do, but sitting and relaxing by the pool was our favourite activity.
Beds and showers were 5 star, I would highly recommend Villamanta to anyone. If you want a relaxing vacation and want to stay in a stunning home, then Villamanta is just perfect.

“Great place for a private group getaway!”
Reviewed May 30, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Beautiful villa with excellent staff! It's possible to walk down to the sea, though it is a little rocky, but there is a path to a very nice beach area right next to the villa. Rooms are completely separate from each other and the villa overall provides a lot of privacy. I look forward to my next stay :)

“Koh Samui's Best Villa”
Reviewed May 22, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Villa Manta is simply fantastic. I stayed there with friends for a week in April and had every expectation met. Rooms are light spacious and airy, the open plan entertainment space and kitchen opening to the fabulous pool terrace are very well designed and easy to use. The view from the villa over the bay to the Golden Buddha and hills beyond is delight at any time of day, but the sunsets can be truly spectacular. Perhaps the biggest delight was the villa support team. Manta has probably the best cook on the island - her traditional Thai cooking is as good as I have had the most expensive restaurants in Bangkok and is well worth the stay on its own. I would definitely go back!

“Breathtaking!”
Reviewed April 14, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We stayed at this gorgeous villa for 6 nights with 2 adults and 5 children. After our private pickup, Peter, the villa manager, met us at the Villa and showed us around and gave us instructions for using all the facilities within the Villa. He was an extremely competent manager and made sure to stay in touch with us during our stay if we needed anything at all. He even organised a special delivery of balloons and cake for one of the children's birthdays. He also organised 3 amazing Thai ladies to come and give us massages and the girls mani/pedi's.

It is perfectly set up for families, couples and friends. The views and villa are spectacular....the photos are real and it's even more amazing in person. The sunsets are the best I've seen ever! You also go to see the planes on descent into Koh Samui...fun to watch.

All the bedrooms are master bedrooms with huge bathrooms and have everything you need for your stay, including shampoo/conditioner/bath soap. The bedrooms all have their own TV's which are a great addition to have. The beds are all super comfortable and have both fans and air con, as well as views from every room.

We throughly enjoyed the infinity pool, it was a perfect temperature and big enough to swim a few laps if you wanted to. We spent most of our time in the outdoor living area and playing pool, which was a big hit with our teenagers. They also supply board games and a few pool toys for the kids to use, including 2 kayaks.. The TV system is incredible, it had so many movies/tv shows available that it was hard to choose what to watch. It included all new movies (some that are on at the movies at the moment) and was incredibly easy to use.

The staff, Moi and Nu were so lovely and looked after our every need. We enjoyed so many meals prepared by them and the breakfast was fantastic to wake up to each morning with every meal served on a beautiful table setting. They were always on hand to ask questions, organise taxi's...absolutely anything, even making a sundowner cocktail or two.

There were a couple of downsides during our stay, the first was loud music being blasted by the next door neighbours, however that was sorted out by Peter as there was a misunderstanding by them of how to work the speaker system in their villa. The second, were the mosquitoes at dusk time, but you have to be prepared for that in Thailand and Nu was fantastic at putting out mosquito coil's whenever we asked.

You are only a 15 min taxi ride from Chaweng and we went there a couple of the days, the driver will pick you up at the villa and then collect you from wherever you wish where you get dropped off.

I would suggest getting a Thai sim card which you can get from the airport, is was 200 THB for a 7 day stay and unlimited wifi.

We have stayed at a few villas in Koh Samui, however, Villa Manta was absolutely perfect in every aspect and we have found our dream villa for every future stay in Koh Samui. We cannot wait to go back!

“As Good As It Gets!”
Reviewed November 1, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We absolutely loved our stay in this modern, luxurious, spacious, private hide-away with stunning views across the water from every room. The villa is new and had everything we could possibly have wanted for a comfortable, relaxing, fun holiday.

The staff were amazing, catering for our every need. Nu makes delicious cocktails and Muey’s Thai cooking is truly world class. The rooms, grounds and pool are kept immaculately clean and tidy. Nu’s also the go to person when you have a special requirement of the extensive, but rather complicated, entertainment system.

A highlight of our stay was kayaking around Koh Som Island (there are two kayaks with life jackets for guests to use) and being greeted by the inquisitive goats and sheep that live on this now-abandoned resort. Be aware that some of the currents in the channel and around the island can be quite strong, though.

Although the staff frequently light mosquito coils, I still needed to apply some insect repellent to avoid mosquito bites, especially outside in the evening while dining and sipping cocktails as we watched the sun set and the occasional fireworks display across the bay.

Thanks to everyone who make this such a special place to stay. We had a truly lovely time.

“All expectations exceeded”
Reviewed August 6, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

WOW! Thats all i have to say first and foremost about this villa. We recently stayed in this Villa for 4 nights with 7 friends. Every single one of us has fallen in love with the villa, every single expectation was absolutely exceeded. Pete introduced us to the villa and the couple who looked after the villa are out of this world. They were always on hand to look after us and went the extra mile to ensure our visit was pleasant. They also speak English and so conversing with them was not much of a problem.........oh, and they are awesome chefs, and I mean awesome! The villa itself is beautiful and has everything you could think of......everything from an awesome sound system, a beautiful pool, entertainment system, a pool table......just literally everything! We have all left our hearts here. This villa is probably the sole reason why each one of us who stayed here have dubbed this recent trip of ours as 'the best trip ever'. Many thanks to the couple who looked after us. And many thanks to Pete who was always on hand to ensure we had everything we needed. The only downside of this place is that there is nothing nearby, so you will need to sort transportation out (but that's also a very good thing, and was the reason i decided to book this villa initially). We stocked up on everything when we arrived, so we didn't have to leave the villa once. We will be returning soon I hope! Awesome Awesome Awesome and highly recommended. Many thanks again!
