The shuttle pick up from the airport (only 15 mins) and arrival drinks at reception were great. Location is very tucked away and high up which provided great views with a quiet atmosphere however is quite far from the popular chaweng beach and will cost a lot if you do not utilise the hotel shuttles.
Unfortunately our room was full of ants and once reporting to reception there was no apology and all they did was send housekeeping with a can of spray.
Food and drinks are extremely overpriced, if you want nice food and drinks try the local restaurants for a fraction of the price (recommend "the hut cafe" near fishermans market)
Pool and spa was amazing with great views and plenty of beds around to rest on
On our last day we got back to our room with a nice letter from the staff with a hand made coconut candle. This was a lovely touch to the end of our stay,
Overall the mantra is a great a place to stay if your looking for a nice resort In a secluded location away from the tourist areas (15-20min by vehicle) and certainly lives up to its Moto (cheeky, with love)
