We hadn't booked anywhere in Koh Tao and were approached by one of their 'reps' on the ferry over from Koh Samui. He offered to take us to view the Coral Grand Resort and the Montra Resort. The rooms at the Coral Grand weren't good enough so we went onto the Montra. The pool here looks really good and the rooms seem fine but don't be lured into booking because of the pool!!
The staff are very unfriendly and unhelpful, the resort is right next to the pier and the beach you have access to is tiny. It's not on the Sairee beach as they lead you to believe.
The room was actually good, with a nice bathroom but we paid around 4500THB for it which is alot in Thailand. We only stayed two nights because on the first day, after eating at their restaurant, we both got food poisoning and were sick all night and day. We've eaten all over Asia and have never been sick before! We had fishcakes and the Pad Thai...when I mentioned our sickness to the reception they ignored me (or pretended not to understand).
The resort lacks any kind of buzz or atmosphere and the 'restaurant' is more like a cantine.
I hope they manage to turn the hotel around and improve it but, until they do, please don't spoil your holiday by staying there.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Koh Tao Montra resort is one of few bigger luxury hotel/resorts on Koh Tao. Offering great beach front location and the biggest swimming-pool with massage tub and swim up-bar. We have distanced our self from the smaller room sizes Koh Tao is known for with rooms from 40 - 100+ sq m. Being located in Mae Haad makes it a more quite and relaxed resort with easy access to shops, restaurants and other activities, and should you require more bars and night clubs during your stay it is only a 10-15 minute walk to the busy and famous Sairee Beach. ... more less
