“NICE PEOPLE NICE LOCATION”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014

My wife and I stayed in what was a very simple,but totally ideal for us, bungalow, in the lovely tropical garden at Montien House. Each day we enjoyed breakfast overlooking the beach before taking up our spot by the pool. The beach directly adjacent to the resort was not ideal for swimming but it was a walk of only a couple of hundred metres to the more delightful part of the beach.We did look at resorts on this part of the beach but considered that Montien House presented the best value for us.
The only down sides were poor wifi and we did get a bit of noise from the Ark Bar at night time. However we were very satisfied with our holiday and will definitely stay at Montien House again.

Nice hotel in the very center of local life, but still very private and comfortable. Restaurant of this hotel IMHO is best on all shore line of Chaweng beach. First time ever I had brekfast on site and it is absolute superb in menu and taste. Stuff of the hotel is friendly and helpful.
Be careful not to buy speedboat trip to National marine park from the GOHOLODAYGO that is located on the main street not far for the hotel. GOHOLYDAYGO owned by Turkish guy (see photo) and has TripAdviser symbol but it is scam. Trick is easy. The guy and his wife are charming, twang a guitar, fluent chatting... etc. He offers you trip on few last days of your stay in Samui. Than they postpone trip on the very last day, than you will hear tale of woe, their apologies and money back offer. They offer to bring your money back directly to you in your hotel... you just seat and wait in your room but you will never see the owner and your money again.

Room Tip: Villa with private pool is the best of this hotel

The Montien's has a nice vibe without being glamorous. Been there for 5 days with a couple of friends and must say had great fun, staff is nice and you can relax on the pool just by the beach.
Don't expect great swimming beach as it is in an area of really quiet waters. Consider staying here if you want to be close to everything, have very decent conditions for a fair price. Careful with the noise, since its close to party area you might hear some music at night, but nothing major.

Room Tip: Closer to the street the rooms are newer. closer to the beach older rooms. Except for that pretty mu...

I Visited Ko Samui in March this year and was pleasantly surprised by Montien House. The staff is extremely friendly and they cater to your every need. When the air-conditioning in our room did not work, they were nice enough to shift us to the suite room. Our room had a balcony, a large bed, a side bed and a huge bathroom with a tub and a shower space. The room was very spacious and the location is unbeatable. The hotel is situated in the heart of chawang beach with restaurants and bars all along the coastline. Our room was a 1 minute walk from the sea and the swimming pool overlooks the beach. There is unlimited wifi access throughout the resort including the beach right in front of it! The food at the restaurant is amazing and I would recommend the green curry and the pad thai. Every night, they have a live singer performing on the beach and her voice is absolutely lovely.

Room Tip: Ask the staff to give you a room closer to the ocean and make sure they don't put you up in the...

We booked 3 nights here and stayed for an extra 2. Great budget hotel, bungalows spacious and clean, staff sooo friendly. Rooms cleaned and refreshed everyday. Lovely position right on beach and in the centre of nightlife but not noisy at all. Best air con...quiet and cold.
Would definitely stay here again, excellent value for money.
Ok the mossies are annoying in the evening but none in our room and bug spray seems to work.
Pool area on beach nice, although could be a bit crowded when the hotel is busy.
Restaurant good and lovely tables on the beach. Breakfast acceptable.

Montien House is doing well for a resort of it's age. Everything that you need to have a good time is available, including a fleet of motor scooters which are owned by the establishment.

The staff were friendly and generally ran the operations of the place well.

The only dissapointing fact about the residence is that they don't have bungaloo's or suites with closing doors inside the dwelling. Although this isn't going to end the world, a little bit of privacy for couples when sharing with mates, would have been a bennefit.

Room Tip: Make sure you get your 'room type' looked in when booking. We were moved around 3 times dur...

Visited here in mid May for only one night as part of our Honeymoon. I mentioned beforehand that it was our honeymoon but didn't expect any perks as was just the one night.

We arrived and found that as there was an availability in a higher room category we would be receiving a free room upgrade. When we arrived in the room it was covered in flower petals and there was a fruit basket. We really appreciated the gesture.

Rooms are clean, well appointed (we stayed in main building although the bungalows look nice too) and the air con is modern and epically cool!

Location is the be all and end all. It's right on chaweng beach (albeit not the busier part) and literally right beside Duomo restaurant (no 3 in Samui on Trip Advisor) and Starz Caberet (if you dig that kinda thing!) and the main bar area is a short stroll away.

All in all couldn't be happier with the whole stay.
