Montra Hotel

Reviewed March 26, 2010

We stayed here for 4 nights we were extremely surprised by the serenity and beauty of Montra. Its so quite and relaxing and the staf does everything to help you. You can have breakfast, lunch and dinner in the beautiful restaurant or in your private villa. The value for money is probably the best you can find in Samui. But what we best liked in Montra was the service and attention by the people who work here, especially by Su and Nong. They were great! We will never ever forget them. If you go to Samui stay here, and rent a car so you are mobile. They can arrange everything for you.

As the title indicates - it's difficult to describe this amazing place without loosing credibility since I can't find one single flaw. We stayed there for 6 nights and believe me, we had a hard time leaving the place... every day! The excellent restaurant, friendly yet proper service and nice facilities makes it a wonderful paradise. The fact that it's such a small hotel with only 9 villas makes it very personal and we really enjoyed to not have a lot of new faces walking by. After just a few days we recognized all people staying at the hotel and we felt very secure and didn't even bother locking the door. Try to to find that feeling at a larger luxury hotel! Montra is definitely worth a detour and we will come back as soon as possible.

Its always so easy to forget to give thanks to the shining stars when you have had the odd bad experience on Holiday. I am thankful to say that the Montra Hotel is the shining Star of our 3 week break to Thailand. Myself and Girlfriend would like to thank all of that Staff at the Montra, from booking, checking in, dinner, breakfast, reception, maintenance, security, management and anyone else that we might have mistakenly missed out.
As a review of the hotel, we stayed in the Hanson suite, excellent considering this is the hotels entry level room. As stated it is a "real" suite with separate lounge area to bedroom both of which have ample space to dance around in, the bathroom has both a huge tub and massive shower, and double sink. The decor is as it looks on the Internet, perfect. Our rate included breakfast which included fresh fruit, tea,coffee, juice and an order from the kitchen, a great way to set yourself up for a day of sight seeing or sun bathing. The Hotel pool has a great design, fairly narrow but stretches around the rooms, giving the option of either swimming lengths or just chilling out in a corner. We also dined in the Hotel for one of our evenings, but on reflection wished we had dined a few more times as the food, service and ambiance could not have been beaten in the local area. We kept it Thai with a reasonably priced bottle of wine and the bill didn't get out of hand.
Location wise the Hotel is a short walk away from the main town which suited us fine, meaning we could walk off dinner, didn't have any road noise and we got to explore a little more than we would have if we were in the centre.
To pop the cherry on the cake, after we had left the hotel a few days later on my girlfriends birthday, we received an email from the hotel wishing her a happy day.
Would I recommend this hotel, yes, would I stay again, yes, do I wish that all hotels in Thailand we like the Montra, Yes, Yes, Yes.

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
