After spending a few nights is busy Sairee Beach area, we looked for somewhere quieter with a nicer beach and some snorkelling. Montalay was the perfect choice. The beach is extrodinarily beautiful, the atmosphere is quiet but the hotel was quite full the whole time so it doesn't feel too remote or secluded. The rooms are a 5 star level and very beutiful (we stayed in a deluxe room), the room patio is great, looking at the ocean. You can rent snorkelling equipment for just 100 bht a day and the snorkelling itself is amazing! you should however be ready for high prices at the restaurant and there aren't many other options unless you want to take a 20 min taxi to Sairee Beach (we didn't). All in all - a wonderful experience and great value for money.
