Discover the pristine vistas of splendid Koh Samui at the Mantra Samui Resort, which promises unparalleled affluence and excellent service.
Located on a hillside in the popular town of Bophut, Mantra Samui Resort offers guests some of the most spectacular panoramic views of Koh Samui’s beautiful coastline.
With the recent extensive renovations to its lobby, spa, pool, rooms and over all to its green profile, Mantra Samui Resort pulled back the curtains on a new tropical retreat.
The hotel’s management company, Louis T Collection, has collaborated with three design firms on the renovation; TIERRA Design, a Thai-based firm with 25 years in the industry and two up-and-coming design firms, Habros Design and Terra Architects.
“With such extensive changes throughout the property, we almost feel like a brand new hotel,” said Niklas Wagner, the hotel’s general manager. “And with all these new efforts to drive sustainability, we feel like we’re really moving in the right direction.”
The bold changes for the ocean-view property on Thailand’s popular Koh Samui Island begin at arrival. The lobby now features a lofty, tiered ceiling reminiscent of traditional Thai house and a verdant, five-meter high vertical garden that references the island’s natural beauty. Indigenous trees and plants now frame the road to the hotel, and a water feature adds a new dimension of appeal to the lush surrounds.
The leading room categories of the hotel have come back to life with natural wood furnishings and contemporary art work. Bathrooms feature his and hers sinks and a spacious rain shower. And each 67-square-meter (721-square-foot) room exudes a cool new contemporary atmosphere, with an earthy color palette long on creams and browns, with splashes of ocean blue in the furnishings and decor and couches. While terracing now encloses sizable balconies in order to provide more seclusion.
A panoramic view of the Gulf of Thailand beckons guest to the infinity edge pool which now features a swim up bar. A new, more spacious, pool deck finished in white marble quarried locally is now in place and a new saltwater filtration system has been added. The new saltwater pool will ultimately remain the most favored spot of the hotel by guests.
At the middle level of the hillside resort, a newly refurbished lounge area provides guests a relaxed air-conditioned space to enjoy the mesmerizing views and partake in some bar games in full swing.
The existing squash courts have been converted into an elegant new spa, Jai. With three single and one double treatment room, and a foot reflexology treatment area, guests can indulge themselves with a range of traditional Thai massages, facials, body scrubs and more. New mood lighting and high ceilings provide a sense of space and tranquility, while bamboo cladding connects guests to the lush nature of the island.
Mantra Samui Resort will be a perfect getaway from the cities.
