How to Get There

Mantra Samui Resort

Koh Samui, 84330 Thailand


Nice boutique hotel

Located on a hill about 20mins drive from Chaweng beach. Good value for money as you get a suite for the price of a hotel room. Great elevated views from most rooms. Steep roadway to the rooms which requires transportation by buggy (45secs) if you have luggage, not advised for those with mobility problems.

Great infinity pool and a business lounge onsite. Complimentary shuttle that runs to the fisherman’s village and chaweng four times a day. This fills quickly and the hotel could run this more often. Taxis charge a premium for ‘going up the mountain’ and it will cost about 500 baht each way to chaweng beach. Breakfast is good but a limited menu that repeats each day. Staff are really friendly and responsive.

Great hotel, great staff.

We had a great time at Mantra Samui. Right from the moment we met the diver at the airport to the service was top quality. All the staff were friendly and very eager to make our stay comfortable, relaxing and memorable. The food was fantastic. Western or Thai style, it was always perfect. The rooms were extremely well presented every day, the room cleaners did a really good job. The only downside was that, being built on a steep slope, getting up and down the driveway way a bit difficult. However, the electric buggy drivers were always there within minutes to ferry you to wherever in the hotel you wanted to go. The upside of being on a slope is that you get a great view from almost every room and the view from the restaurant and pool is stunning. Top notch hotel and good value for money.

Wonderful views

Quiet location up on a hill with excellent views.
Pool and restaurant have lovely views over the bay.
Balconies are private and easy for quiet relaxing.
Helpful staff with lots of smiles.
Looking forward to returning.
