Mantra Samui Resort
Ranked #16 of 184 Hotels in Bophut
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 October 2013

We stayed 3 nights at Mantra Samui Resort (our honeymoon), and we were very satisfied. Although the hotel is not close to city center, a free shuttle service is available leaving and returning each hour. Very friendly staff, very professional, very good level of English. Many tourist tours available from the hotel if you do not want to bother. We booked a tour of 20h for the second day. The swimming pool is particularly beautiful, overflowing overlooking the north coast of the island. The restaurant is good, and the breakfast is royal. And we got a discount for the third night, not originally intended (3000 baht instead of 4800, in the same room). Other details: free internet in the room, and a hard-disk with many movies and music.

We spent our honeymoon at the Mantra Samui Resort and I may see couldn’t have picked a better place. Everyone in the staff is extremely friendly, the breakfast a la carte was excellent and not to mention the oriental style beds which made us feel like we were the guests of honor. The hotel is extremely exquisite I recommend it with 100 % confidence that everyone who will stay there will enjoy it very much because we simply loved it. The only downside, for us at least, was the much higher prices of their restaurant compared to other good restaurants in the area. For example, we ordered a fruit salad in our room and we ended up paying three times more than if we would have bought it from somewhere downtown.

We stayed at the Mantra for an 8 night stay in a cozy room. The Hotel is on a hill and can be steep but the golf carts are at your service any time of the day or night. The room we stayed in was excellent, clean, great bed and we over looked the pool and dinning and bar area, the room was cleaned daily the staff were excellent. The breakfast was good, the coffee great but the staff require more training it was always a surprise what we ordered was going to be the right order, in saying that the staff were always friendly and happy. The bar drink prices are expensive compared to outside the hotel, the bar staff need to get personality's they only speak to the young people they want to speak to, the older customers don't get a look in, they certainly were not showing the love. The pool area is lovely the pool is kept clean, we did not find it difficult to get a sun bed, the towels are fine also. The lunch time menu is good. Yes this hotel is on a hilltop but the free shuttles into Chewang and Bophut the Mantra offer are fantastic, and if you want to stay late get a taxi back "yes" they do drive up the hill. We were delighted with this hotel a few little things could be worked on but we will be back, thank you for an amazing stay.

Room Tip: The Cozy Rooms is the biggest room with a lounge ad bedroom and huge bathroom

The hotel is good but it's defiantly not 5 star & if you come here expecting that then you will be disappointed.

The main thing that bothered us (& an some couples that we met at the resort) was the prices. You only have to look at some of my other reviews to understand I have absolutely no problem paying over the odds for food, drinks etc if the surroundings justify it but what was the score here ?

Some examples: The cheapest beer is over £3 (170 THB) a bottle but go to some decent bars/pubs in town & you can pay 79 THB a PINT.

The cheapest vodka is £4 (200 THB) a shot & goes up to £21 (1050 THB) for Stolichnaya Elit. WTF Stoli isn't even that good.

I understand the "Import Taxes" but seriously other bars are selling the same spirits for least 50% LESS.

A 60 min Thai massage at the hotel will set you back £24 (1200 THB) but go into town & visit one of the professional Spa's (try D's Spa Chaweng) & it's just under £4 (190 THB) for the same treatment.

The food in the restaurant is the same. Its nice but visit Café 69 in Bophut first and tell me how the hotel can justify charging more.

The staff here take care of everything and are always smiling.
We started our holiday here, staying 5 nights. the rooms are excellent, the pool is beautiful, the food is very tasty (the buffet is a bit expensive but was great fun).
The shuttles could be more frequent but no big complaints, there was a late shuttle from bophut which is far nice than chaweng.
the staff really made the holiday for us.
The only really minor suggestion I would have is the drink prices. The prices of the cocktails are so high, it put us off having a late night drink a few times. I think if the prices were lower, it would entice more people to gather here in the evenings instead of heading into bophut.

apart from that, I would fully recommend Mantra to anyone

Room Tip: the jacuzzi rooms are great but filling it takes 40 mins!

What a great place to relax. The views are amazing and the staff can't do enough for you. The food is fabulous and choice amazing. Wouldn't call the hotel 5 star (4*) but you feel comfortable and it is welcoming. Although there was nearly full occupancy it didn't feel crowded at all .The shuttle to and from Bophut and Chaweng works well and if you need a taxi it is available for $12.00 or so if you want to do your own thing.
Free wifi is available( Nice change) and although I had read about not enough sun beds for the pool we always found one .We had a wonderful massage from the spa room and getting the buggies up and down the hill to our room wasn't a worry.We chose not to be in the middle of the beach crowds so it depends what you prefer .We had 6 wonderful days and had we been younger not hesitated to get a scooter to get around the island.
Mantra staff Thanks for a great stay,you are lovely people with a great philosophy .

Room Tip: We had a Wow room with fabulous views .Quiet room, bit further from pool but fine for us.Didn't...

Hi All,
We stayed here for 2 nights recently.
Some Pointers:
*Awesome view
*Amazing staff (Good service quality)
*Shuttle service (Many have reviewed that shuttle service is available to anywhere in samui, but i would like to make a correction here, Shuttle service is only available for Bophut and Chaweng beach-nowhere else)
*Food was good
*Free International Calls
*Located on a hill, although hotel provides shuttle services but still you dont feel that free to go just anywhere, as you have to stick to shuttle timings
*Expensive in comparison to what it offers
*Breakfast spread - Not good. Almost nothing for Vegetarians (When i demanded for something vegetarian, it was prepared for me, but still i could not enjoy the spread except the fruits)
*We stayed in their Love Jacuzzi room, it is good but the minus point is that they just have one AC in the room and it is not enough to beat the scorching heat (Rooms are sun facing). Our room was hot all the times
I would recommend this hotel, only if you dont want to go to the beach often and just enjoy the views.
Happy Travelling

Room Tip: Rooms on the higher side are better, so that nobody peeks into your balcony.
