Montra Hotel
Ranked #27 of 51 Hotels in Lamai Beach
Reviewed 21 December 2013

Fantastic stay here for 2 nights after 2 weeks backpacking around Thailand. I felt like I had the whole place to myself and had the full attention of the staff whenever I needed anything. The pool is lovely, the rooms are huge and fully equipped and the food was really good too. Good value in the grand scheme of things - my 2 nights cost me the same as what you'd pay for a budget hotel in a small town/city in the UK. Easy to walk to/from the beach and some shops where I picked up some bargains, but the hotel will give you a lift for free if you'd prefer. Ideal place for a solo traveller looking for some peace and quiet, a nice romantic setting for couples and family friendly too.
Didn't use the spa facilities, so haven't rated those.

The Montra is under 10min walk to Lamai beach, and is an absolutely stunning little boutique hotel. It's so peaceful; and the swim around pool is AWESOME. The staff are so gorgeous, all they want is for you to have a good time! The hotel food is delicious and breakfast is free; a lovely little family vibe here with a few cute little (clean) cats as the hotel pets xoxo I love this place I don't want to leave!

Montra is an ideal place for anyone who is looking for a peaceful and relaxing place to get away from the city life. It is located away from the main road and Lamei beach so will be good if you are renting a motorbike or car to travel around. There are only 9 suites so the place will not get over crowded. There is also a small and well-maintained swimming pool for the guests but I noticed that the Jacuzzi is not working during our stay.

We first visited Koh Samui and stayed at Montra back in Jan 2011. We had a wonderfully experience and the staff in Montra even surprised us with a cake to celebrate my wife birthday with us.

We decided to return to Montra to enjoy the peaceful and relaxing atmosphere and we still enjoy the stay very much even though we encountered some hiccups during our stay.

On the first night, we encountered air-con breakdown in the middle of the night. When we approached the reception, there was a guy and even though he could not communicate well in English, he was quick to react by arranging for us to stay in another suite as the technician is only available the next day.

On the next day, the technician came and fixed the air-con but it breakdown again in the evening. This time, we were able to bring it up by switching on the breaker ourselves. When we feedback to Su, she was very apologetic and assure us that she has tested it personally to sure it is working.

Throughout our stay, Su was very helpful. On one of the morning when there is not many guest in the restaurant, she even goes the extra mile by customizing our breakfast menu. The service staffs are helpful in Montra but special thanks to Su for helping to make our stay a memorable one.

Room Tip: There are 2 suites that have direct access to the swimming pool.

After a 3 month trip around SE Asia we treated ourselves with 4 nights at the Montra in Koh Samui before heading back to the UK.
It was the most perfectly relaxing place with gorgeous villas (bigger than our London flat), an amazing pool and food to die for. We felt truly spoilt and we were so comfortable that we pretty much didn't leave the premises for our entire stay. Perfect for some R&R.

Montra hotel is probably the best relaxing place in all of Samui. You feel transported into a blissful place the moment you enter the hotel as You are immediately greeted by their courteous and smiling staff. The rooms are wide and spacious, feeling the comforts of home. And the food- ah the food- cant say enough of this. I was really surprised that the food here taste so good. My compliments to the chef. Ah, cant wait to get back. Mil manila

Montra constantly surprises you from the spacious villas to the incredible food and luxurious meandering pool. It is truly the hidden gem of Koh Samui! In a way i was a bit hesitant to provide these reviews in fear of seeing Montra fully booked the next time I return to Koh Samui.
