A truly amazing small and intimate hotel with only 9 detatched tastefully furnished bungalows and the most pleasant helpful and attentive staff you could ever wish to meet. Beautiful relaxing and peaceful surroundings, spotlessly clean, excellent food and would highly recommend a stay ! we really didn't want to leave!

Great little hotel with a focus on service. Really friendly staff, clean rooms and great food. If you are looking for a resort hotel on the island where you roll out of your room and hit the beach then this is not the place. If you however want somewhere from which to explore the island this then is the place....

We had a fabulous time at the Montra and I would definitely stay there again. It is set in beautiful grounds with a lovely large pool which wraps right around all the villas. There are also several nice outside spaces to enjoy and the intimacy of the hotel is one of its best features. Being slightly out of town was...

We stayed in the Montra Hotel in March '11 with our son and his wife. The ferry pick up was on time - even though we had booked months in advance. Staff at the hotel were very welcoming and this continued throughout our 3 night stay. Nothing was too much trouble – they even provided a laptop! The hotel is...

Montra is such a lovely hotel! It's very peaceful and relaxing since it's located in a lush garden, just 10-15 min walk away from noisy and tourist jammed Lamai and the beach. Since the hotel consists of only nine small villas there are not that many guests, which makes it very personal and the staff is absolutely fantastic and helpful....

We stayed 5 nights at Montra Samui in March 2011. It's a small property about 15 minutes walk form Lamai Beach, although the hotel driver can usually drop you off in town or collect you as requested (complimentary before 5pm). The 9 villas surround an extensive pool, and the grounds are immaculately landscaped, with plenty of vegetation giving a great...

We stayed at Montra for 1 week two weeks before Christmas 2010. We arrived 1 day early, by mistake...holiday haze, lost track of time. Even though we were a day early, nothing was said to us until we actually got to our room..a little embarrassing at that point. All they said was that they were very happy we were there....

We stayed at the Montra in May 2010 and had a fantastic holiday. We found that the staff (especially Sue) couldn't do enough to help us, including booking restaurants, transport and general advice. My sister and her boyfriend were travelling with us and unfortunately she had a reaction to a mosquito bite during our stay. The Manager was very helpful...

An extraordinarily chilled experience. The hotel is small and is set in the most beautifully Feng Shui landscaped gardens which rang with the sound of tinkling water during the days as we sunbathed by the pool. The pool is unusual in shape and meanders around many of the rooms which are all set in the gardens as detached villas. Because...

If the only think you want is a big and impersonal hotel straight on the beach... Montra is not for you. If you want quite, a great decor, spacy and comfortable villas, staff that is delicate, personable and happy to help for anything, great breakfast, a nice restaurant, lazy hours next to the pool, the privacy and intimacy of a...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Montra is a small independent hotel located in Lamai. To enter you have to duck through a pair of solid old wooden gates and, as the gates clunk closed behind you, you find yourself in a magical peaceful garden, you feel yourself relaxing and you have the feeling you are somewhere special. Our quiet hillside location, one kilometre from Lamai Beach, allows us to give you holiday lodgings in a beautiful villa for a price better than the tiny room at the beach. Being a nine villa property means Montra is able to offer a more personal touch with staff knowing you by name and learning your preferences whilst still respecting your privacy. Our nine luxurious villas are situated in lush tropical gardens dominated by an elegant swimming pool. All villas are 63 square meters and offer a master bedroom with a high ceiling, top quality bed and linens; the living room comes equipped with all the modern amenities; the 14 square meters bathroom offers both an open shower with a bathtub designed for two with twin headrests and double sinks. ... more   less
