The brand new Montra Resort & Spa in Mae Haad on Koh Tao is finally completed and it looks beautiful. It's a nice upscale boutique resort next to the Seatran pier on Koh Tao, just a 2 minute walk and on it's the other side is Sairee beach, just a 10 minute walk away, a beautiful scenic walk.
Montra resort is specially designed to pamper the needs of indulgent leisure travelers. The hotel is also popular among water sport enthusiasts who can indulge in scuba diving and snorkeling very nearby. The June Juea Beach, Ao Leuk and Thian Og Bay are some of the other unspoiled tourist spots within close proximity. Accommodation options are varied and there is something to suit every budget ranging from deluxe rooms to suites and all are equipped with cable TV and private balcony. The restaurant serves authentic Thai cuisine and the poolside bar is a nice place to relax.
The pool is gorgeous but you may find a few divers in it, as they are hard to avoid anywhere on Koh Tao.
If that's not enough, within a few minutes walks the Mae Haad and Sairee beaches offer plenty of excellent food options, covering a wide range of tastes and budgets.
At the moment of writing this review, the Montra Resort has a special offer which is very tempting. If you're looking for comfort and some luxury in a central location, the Montra offers just that.
Panviman Resort is highly recommended if you are looking for an idyllic romantic setting for two. Set on a steep hillside overlooking Thong Nai Pan beach, the luxurious Panviman Resort gives you the most incredible views of the beautiful Thong Nai Pan beach. The resort is most suitable for honeymooners, couples, and young families who want to enjoy a luxury holiday, away from the noisy beach crowds. The premium villas and cottages come with a private second floor terrace, complete with sun loungers and even an outdoor bathtub! A handful of beach side restaurants and bars within walking distance from the resort offer fresh seafood and fantastic value cocktails.
Be aware however that the resort is located in a real far away location, it's fairly remote and shuttle transfers are not easily available and taxi rides can be expensive around Koh Phangan. Another thing to consider is that the resort is build on a hill, so reaching your room can be a bit of a timely exercise.
The resort boosts 10 Superior Cottages, 26 Deluxe Cottages, 10 Deluxe hotel rooms, 4 Family cottages, 3 Spa Villas and a Presidential suite.
The swimming pool is massive and spread out over various layers and a real treat to use.
Room features Air – Conditioning, private bathroom with hot and cold shower, private bathroom with bathtub & hot and cold shower, bathtub with Jacuzzi in the open – air terrace, mini-bar & refrigerator, tea & coffee facilities, satellite TV in room, individual VCD, IDD telephone in the rooms, electronic safe in all rooms, beach sandals, towels and umbrellas in the rooms and daily make-up of the room.
The resorts has two restaurants, the Pan Sea and Stone Beach restaurants but there's also good food available in the nearby village.
A very nice and luxurious retreat almost in the jungle with a fair price tag, not cheap but affordable in the medium to higher end price range.
