“Amazing view”
Reviewed 14 December 2013

As other guests pointed out, this is a 3 star resort with a 5 star view. REally good view, peacefull beach, amazing buffet breakfast, comfy rooms with amazing view! We really enjoyed our 4 night stay after been backpacking for a one month through southeast asia. Totally recommend for your budget!

Palm Coco Mantra is a 3 star resort that offers 5 star views from our deluxe room which was located on the top floor of the three story building, there are bunglaows available but their views seem somewhat restricted.

Upon arriving the staff were friendly, helpful and like most places smiling away. The Deluxe room was huge and offers the basic amenties, bar fridge, limited cable channels, safety box and bathroom is clean, nice balcony to sit and enjoy the view out to the beach and open sea.

Palm Coco Mantra is bit far off the main road into Lamai but hiring a small motor bike for 200THB (Thai Baht) allowed us to explore more of the island, Lamai Beach and other restaurants, easy to ride motor bikes just have to have your wits about you when you do.

The beach, while we read that some were not impressed with the beach because of it shallow waters, we found the beach refreshing and very safe. Yes it is less than 1 metre deep but for families and small children it is ideal as Lamia Beach a few kilometres away can be dangerous and deep in many parts. There is a kayak to use to explore the open waters and rock formations that are just off the beach.

The pool is big enough, clean and well maintained, cooler than the sea but most guests just enjoy swimming in the sea.

The restaurant is quite good, offering thai and western food, the staff there are friendly and eager to please, breakfast was simple but ample enough to enjoy.

Overall we had a great stay and would return to enjoy Palm Coco mantra Resort again when on Koh Samui.

We stayed in this hotel for two nights. As soon as we arrived the receptionist welcomed us very friendly and showed us our room. First time in Thailand when all the staff spoke conversational english. The breakfast was amazing with lots of fruits, cereals, english breakfast. The romm was very clean modern and tidy with a real 4 star bed, they had lots of free amnities, the room was cleaned daily. Fast internet all around the property. They beach was very nice same as on the photos and they have free kayak to take and we even see the cleaner lady sweeping the sand and cleaning the beach from derbits. But if you want to be around the town than it's better to have a scooter rented because it could take a while to get into the town, but apart of that this is a super nice hotel with a beautiful beach and very friendly staff. I hope I can come back and enjoy this place again.

Great place to stay. Room I had faced the sea with a veranda and was exactly what I wanted. The room was spacious, clean, with standard amenities and including wifi which worked very well. The hotel had a lovely swimming pool right next to the beach. The buffet breakfast was ample and the restaurant's offerings were quite substantial and the lunch/dinners I had were very good. This hotel is worth staying at. One suggestion is that a guest needs to rent a moto bike as the location is a little out of the way. When riding be cautious and all will be ok.

Room Tip: Higher floors offer better view of the ocean

I stayed here for 4 nights on a solo holiday and it was absolutely amazing! Its so peaceful and the people were so wonderful and helpful. I stayed in the deluxe sea view room and it was spacious, clean, had the biggest and comfiest bed, and was beautifully decorated (and the view is stunning!). The pool looks right over the sea and the bit of beach that this resort is on is small and quiet. The sea is shallow and peaceful and perfect to just laze in. It is about a 20 minute walk to Lamai beach road (or Lamai town as such)so if you are looking for a quiet, relaxed holiday where you are happy to just stay at your resort, then this is the place. The restaurant has a wide variety of Thai and Western foods and the breakfast is of a good standard. Overall, I loved this resort and if you wan a holiday to just relax in a quiet, peaceful setting away from everything, then this is the place to be!

Room Tip: Deluxe Seaview is the way to go!

We spent our first 24 hours in Koh Samui at this resort while waiting for our longer term accommodation bookings. The airport pickup was waiting for us and we checked in several hours early. The room was spotless with coffee station and fridge. The ground floor room was the nearest to reception and offered a magnificent view of the Lamai bay and hotel swimming pool. The bathroom boasts a large shower. The negatives - too close to a noisy reception and business centre - get a room further away. The shower window does not offer privacy to females from the waist up - clear glass with no curtain. The resort is a good 2km away from the Lamai main strip - a long walk, short taxi ride or - recommended - hire a scooter. Unfortunately the pool was undergoing pump repairs and the water was not sparkling clean. The breakfast is just OK and there is limited parking. The positives - great TV channels, free Wifi, friendly and helpful staff, free airport transfers, aircon, on the beach, comfortable bed. This is a reasonably-priced average resort, perfect for a budget holiday.

Room Tip: Avoid ground floor units.

This is the kind of hotel where you can laze around the whole day. It is not luxurious but it has a good size pool n the beach is just a few steps away. Beach is clean with fine sand and the waters knee high. In fact it is almost a lagoon. The hotel shares the same private beach with next door 5-star hotel, Renaissance. Breakfast is average but it serves a variety of tropical fruits. It may not have a strong restaurant but a plate of Thai fried noodles cost 120 baht. Points to note: go for the deluxe rooms which are much bigger n better furnished than the superior rooms. Price difference is about 200 baht. For older guests do request 1st floor rooms cos there are no lifts.
