I've just returned with 9 of my friends from a 5-day stay in Mantra and we all LOVE the resort. The WOW room that we stayed in overlooks the sea, the infinity pool is just wonderful and we absolutely love our breakfast(s) - especially the PANCAKES (and coffee). The staff is warm, friendly and attentive. Thank you Mantra for a fantastic time ! We definitely missed our stay there.

"Cheeky with Love" is Hotel Mantra's policy and it was that. Staff were wonderful and happy to chat and advise on any queries we had. Our special thanks go out to PK and the Manageress whose name I've forgotten and I do apologise. Our room was amazing - no problems at all and the most amazing view. The driveway was extremely steep - therefore good after a big meal but if you did not feel up to the exercise you only needed to ask for the golf cart shuttle and they were there within minutes. Brilliant! Was lovely being up in the hills as it seemed a little cooler and certainly was quiet too. Spa treatment was just what we needed. We were also able to hire scooters from the hotel which was great and made our ability to get out and do things on our own. Thanks again to all.

Room Tip: Wow rooms - best view!!

Stayed in February 2012, so over a year ago but just getting round to reviews.

This hotel is something quite different and can offer you a special holiday if you want somewhere secluded and peaceful. The staff were very friendly. Breakfast always was fresh and something for everyone. Not too keen on the melon juice though!!!

The shuttle down to the town really is essential , walking it is insane.

The rooms were very nice, lovely beds, jacuzzi on balcony and two sinks. The hot water sometimes ran a bit cold though.

The swimming pool was fantastic, infinity pool in the hills some amazing views.

I would highly recommend this hotel.

My criticisms would be that the drinks and food were priced very highly and put us off having dinner there sometimes. also the television is on the wall to the side of the bed making it impossible to watch from lying in bed.

Room Tip: Love room recommended!!

We had a great time at Mantra.

In my opinion the location out of town is an advantage as no outsiders walking through and its a break from being in the mix on the beach. You can always get down onto the beaches and in to the town if you want to on the shuttles; we are not party types and by 10.00pm we were happy to head back to the Mantra but realize we could have taken taxis if we wanted more.

Our room was at the top of the hill, but we needed the exercize after the sumptuous breakfast and even better a la carte dinners. Cocktails and bar great. Massaman fantastic.

The staff were all very friendly and attentive but the huge gekko near our room gave the missus a scare; he was a monster.

Gardens beautiful and I enjoyed a walkup the track into the bush behind the resort.

Room Tip: We were up the back away from the pool but we had great views but I expect that all rooms much the s...

My husband and I just returned from 10 magical days on Koh Samui and we absolutely loved our stay at The Mantra. Within the first few hours it felt like home. We stayed in a Love room, with magnificent view over the Gulf of Thailand and all comforts that one could possible want. Everything at The Mantra is like you would expect it from any 5* resort, just funkier and more fun and relaxed.

Between the friendly, helpful and always available staff, the attention to detail and the quirky quotes everywhere smiling was easy

Breakfast was out of this world - apart from feeling like you are sitting on the edge of paradise sipping on Barrista-made coffee, the choices and quality of the food was exceptional. We are vegetarians and nowhere have we seen such a selection of hot and cold breakfast dishes to choose from. And I'm not even mentioning the pancakes...

We loved to live on top of the hill and the out of the way location. We hired a little car for our entire stay which gave us the freedom to explore the whole island at our leisure and it was wonderful coming home to our room at the end of each day. The resort itself is stunning and well-maintained, the infinitely pool is so amazing none of the pictures do it justice. Although we didn't take advantage of all the facilities it was wonderful having them at our available.

One constructive critisism: We would have loved a choice of yoga classes. We never managed to make the 1 class p/day at 5pm because we were at the beach or out around that time. An early morning class would have been wonderful.

Overall - we loved our stay at the mantra and can only recommend this wonderful hotel and we will definitely be back. Thank you :)

Me and my girlfriend stayed here for 4 nights in the "Love" room which had a hot tub on the balcony and it was perfect! The staff where friendly and more than helpful.
The resort was located high up in the hills. The resort supplied numberous shuttle transfers to both town centres (Bophut and Chaweng) free of charge and was a brilliant service.

Couldn't recommend this place anymore!

The service is amazing here, the staff is very attentive. Rooms are beautiful, with great views overlooking the ocean. The fitness center was 5 star. The restaurant was hit or miss, but mostly good. Room service food was not very good. There are a wide variety of free movies available, and you can request to watch any movie in their movie theater.They have a free shuttle into town often throughout the day, which is nice because the hotel's location is secluded.

Room Tip: Rooms on the higher floors will offer a more expansive view of the ocean, but it's a far walk to...
