I will definitely come back to this hotel. A small problem with leaking air conditioner was promptly attended to and fixed. The room was clean, bright and breezy, so I turned off the air conditioner to enjoy the sea breeze through the open door.

The apartment itself was a partial sea view one and...

We loved our time at the Mantra Esplanade. Pleasantly surprised by the accommodations when we arrived. The location was perfect, right by the lagoon, making it easy to walk to the night markets, restaurants, the Reef Terminal. Loved the view of the lagoon from our room. The room was very comfortable. It was so convenient to have the equipped kitchen...
