Montigo Resort is a gem found by a friend online for a group of 8 of us who were looking for exclusivity yet somewhere private for our weekend getaway during July. With a soft launch price hard to beat, we thought it was a good deal for a large group of us. Initially we were looking at just one hilltop villa but since it allows only maximum 5 pax per villa, we didn't mind reserve another 2nd villa.
We were given free land transfer from Nongsapura Terminal and immediately feel the warm hospitality upon arrival with cool towel and welcome drink. Since at that time it was only a soft launch thus there were only few people known about this resort and made the reservation. I bet by now it would have been fully furnished and higher occupancy.
We were given the highest row of the hilltop villas which were the only few opened at that time. Everything looked new and spacious inside the villa. It is 3 floor storeys high, with living room, kitchen and small private pool at the balcony. A Wii gameset is available to kill time in the villa. Further to 2nd floor is 1 king size bedroom with huge bathroom with bathtub in the middle and separate toilet/shower cubicle and consists of an airwell in it overlook the sky. The other room is a twin bedded single room with a separate bathroom with standing shower only. Both rooms have LCD TV, overlooked the straits and the seaview is great at this level too. Beds are equally comfortable and we slept well in there during our stay. 3rd floor is empty at that time which i believe they would have put some furniture there but only white PVC mattresses there. Believe it is to used for sunbathing purpose but we then used it for star gazing at night! Hahaha. But bear in mind of the mosquitos which i encountered some.
After checking in and a quick dip in the private pool to cool ourselves during this hot month, we rented a 7 seater taxi through the hotel but it sits comfortably for 8 of us. It took a good 45 mins to reach the town and shopping mall. We went for massage and purchasing our dinner pack from the coffee shops near the mall back to resort in view that there are limited choices in the only restaurant opened there at that time. We had a great time chit chatting, dipping ourselves again in the private pool, under the moon and stars with bintang beers, peanuts and crackers after our dinner. Since we had nothing much to do in the resort since no facility was available during our July stay and only the spa was opened. Then we decided to explore the spa to check out their package for our next day, given that we entitled to 20% discount for all treatments. There are one private larger pool and 2 jacuzzis within the spa premise. We were given the consent by the spa to use it till late. It was enjoyable as with a group of 8 of us, the entire pool and jacuzzis are just our exclusive heaven! We has great fun there swimming and relaxing at 10ish!
Breakfast was very limited with 2 to 3 set meals to choose from. But it is sufficient for each of us with toast, sausage, ham, scramble eggs and coffee/tea/juice. We didnt expect much as we are paying what we were paying for, that is the privacy for our group of friends in both villas.
Overall we are happy with this resort at such a launched price given and we hope to go there again in near future, if the price is right.
