Great hotel

Posted Apr 6, 2016
Very good room. Very clean and great spa on baloney. Pool fantastic. Only disappointments are the frequency of the buses from the resort to the town; and the restaurant was ok but not great.

Great hotel with great views.

Posted Mar 31, 2016
Pros: Great location
Cons: The rooms are looking a little tired but they are being refurbished
Location: The closeness to Fishermans village and Chaweng gives you lots to do on an evening and daytime.
The hotel was spotless and the staff could not have been nicer. The rooms were starting to look a little tired, although not really an issue, but the hotel is in the process of starting to upgrade them. The location has both pros and cons. Great views and away from the noise of the road etc. However you do need to take the free shuttle bus to get to Fishermans village and Chaweng Beach. You just need to be organised with your timing. If you want to do things outside the times you need to take a taxi. The hotel is great but not suitable for the elderly as it is on a hill with steep slopes. However I would recommend this hotel.

Great views but needs some updates

Posted Mar 27, 2016
Good location, nice views, helpful staff, needs updates (the pool area is to small for that big of a resort, shower was off and on cold, furniture in room worn down, uncomftorable bed) I know the hotel is undergoing some renovations so hopefully these types of minor issues are resolved. :-)

My sister and I had a fantastic introduction to Koh Samui, on our first trip to Thailand, thanks to Mantra! isolated in the hills, away from the hustle and bustle of the streets with friendly staff and views for miles. especially loved the spa!

Great hotel with lovely view of Koh samui

Posted Dec 30, 2015
We had an ocean view room that had stunning panoramic views of Koh Samui. The staff were very friendly and helped us out a lot in booking tours and transfers. The infinity pool is amazing and the breakfast was very impressive! Highly recommend to anyone.

Our second visit to The Mantra

Posted Oct 27, 2015
Pros: The gym, the staff, the breakfast, the gardens and the view!
Cons: Morale with the staff. You can tell they are not happy. The condition of some of the areas.
Location: The hotel is located away from the main road. Fisherman village is near by and great on a Friday night. James Fashion in fisherman village best tailor
We stayed at the Mantra in 2013 and decided to return on a recent visit to Koh Samui. We stayed for 10 days in a Love Suite Villa (room 0222). We picked the Mantra on experience. It was different from the usual chain hotels. It offered something else. The facilities are great. We needed a good gym and they have it. There is a sauna and a steam room (although they are never working when we visit). The pool has amazing views of the villages below and Koh Phangan in the distance. We enjoyed our stay very much. I would point out that the hotel has recently been purchased and is going through a change. For those that have been to the hotel before, all of the quirky character is being taken out. The staff do not seem to enjoy the experience anymore. The smile has gone along with the old owners.The hotel is due to be refurbished. We got the impression that all works had been put on hold until that time. Our room really needed a repaint. The shower had very little pressure and we had to make a request for the air conditioning unit to be fixed due to noise. The beds are so uncomfortable. We had to request additional blankets just to lie on. Please don't get me wrong you still get value for money at this hotel. I hope the new owners bring back some of the bizarre character when they do the refurbishment - this includes the games room/pool table next to reception. Market the hotel for those without children. The pool and sun bed area isn't big enough for kids screaming and playing.

The hotel is at the top of the hill about a 5minutes drive from Fisherman's Wharf. they do offer a shuttle bus service to there and Chaweng although it could be offered a bit more frequently than the quite limited service at the moment.

Dear Guest, We’re happy to hear that you’ve had a great time at Mantra Samui Resort! We've recently adjusted the shuttle bus schedule. Every other hours, there're 7 vans leaving to Fisherman's village and 6 vans leaving to Chaweng. This would maximize our guests' experience while staying with us.
