I have been in the travel industry for 40 years, this property is superb in every way, the location set away from the hurly burly, loveliest staff, moi, nu and on with peter the manager, could not do enough for us, a premium property with all facilities first class, the highest recommendation from a seasoned traveller from emailing the owner regina, i knew straight away what to expect, first class attention, the birthday present said it all, a must stay. i hope to be back. excellent transfers available for day tours, the property has four separate apartments, so ideal for several couples or a large family gathering like mine, pool the magnet for children, eight ball comps very competitive and tv channels galore. the surroundings and view with sunsets galore would endear anyone to extend their stay, 15 minutes from fisherman's village and pier access to island tours. my number one recommendation to friends on return home. mark
I would like to thank you for all the Help and arrangements that you had taken care of for our Baby Moon.
We had an absolute splendid time and be rest assured about us coming back soon.
Infact we shall be recommending the same to a lot of our friends. As we loved it totally.
Please give me regards to all the staff, Sorry I could not get all of their names,. Just Muey, and the others I could not get their names.
But all were on their toes and did a splendid job in keeping us comfortable.
Thank you so much for everything.
Many thanks on all the hospitality from your staffs, we had a great time! Your Villa is very comfy that we didn’t actually went out for 2 days!!
I want to say thank you for you and the crew for this few days to caring us for everything especially muey ,she did the well done job and caring for us.
I FEEL SO HAPPY & ENJOYABLE STAY IN THE VILLA~
Very much enjoyed the stay at your lovely villa and Muey and her husband have been really great.
We stayed at this Villa as a group of 8, for a little less than a week. The Villa itself is wonderful - clean and airy, the infinity pool is great, the pool table was put to good use, and the speaker systems working very well. The Villa itself is not too far from major destinations such as Chaweng and Fisherman's Village, and the hosts were very kind in helping us arrange safe transport. The lady of the house- Khun Muey - is also lovely and a great cook. She helped us with any queries, and she and Khun Peter gave many worthwhile recommendations regarding what to explore. The kayaks were also put to good use, and the private beach was a great and relaxing spot for hanging out and taking many, many photos. Would definitely recommend this Villa and the Samui experience that comes along with it!
Villa Manta is an excellent property located with stunning views and a great pool, very well located! Regina is an excellent host! We are a family with four boys who had such a good time at the Villa, they didn’t want to go home. The team was extremely hospitable and accessible and open to special requests. We had very specific dietary needs and where accommodated fully, highly recommended vacation and Villa! Very high quality and excellent value.
Thank you for such amazing service from you and your staffs to fulfill our lovely stay at the villa. We really had such a great time there and the staffs are very nice and helpful. We really like the dinner K’ Muay cooked for us and all the lovely decoration for the birthday. Also thank you for a lovely cake! We were all very happy last night.
If we have a chance to come back we will definitely come back to stay at your villa again.
We have had a lovely stay in your beautiful villa and we have been well looked after by your team.
The food and cocktails have both been great, as you said, and we had one magnificent sunset as well. We also loved the pool which was so lovely and warm.
Owner's meeting, in-house chef's meal, staff care, scenery, etc. are all perfect
Living in villa manta is my best choice . I had a great holiday and enjoyed . I think if I have time , I will come here again, thanks all of your service. And I will introduce here to my friends.
Thanks a lot.
Everything about this stay exceeded our expectations. The house was absolutely perfect for our group to enjoy. The individual master suites afforded everyone identical King suites, situated for privacy and gorgeous views. The kitchen and common area that opened up to the infinity pool was our favorite spot to enjoy the spectacular sunsets. The staff was incredibly helpful and attentive when needed and went above and beyond to decorate and create a special dinner celebration. This is definitely a 5-star Villa and vacation experience that our group will forever treasure.
Ndependent 4 rooms, the living room restaurant is very large and comfortable, the swimming pool is very good, the air volume is very good, the advantage of other villas in the same grade is that it is very close to the sea, about 10 meters away, can go directly from the villa to the beach, and the evening seaside There are small shrimps and small crabs. If you like fishing, you can ask the butler to take you from the shore to the center of the sea. Note that it is a walk. The magical place in this sea area is a reef in the middle of the sea. It really stands in the middle of the sea and is surrounded by the coast.
早餐非常好，经常会变化，不像五星级酒店，基本一样。游泳池很好，孩子们每天玩的很开心。平时给孩子们做点餐非常方便，买来食材加工后口味非常棒。能玩麻将很开心，可能苏梅岛的其他地方没有这项吧。四间卧室各自独立，互不打扰，干干净净的很不错。 The breakfast is very good and often changes, unlike the five-star hotel, basically the same. The swimming pool is very good and the children are having a good time every day. It is very convenient to order food for the children. It is very good after buying the ingredients. It is very fun to play mahjong. Maybe there is no such thing in other parts of Koh Samui. The four bedrooms are independent and don't bother each other. It's very clean. The whole family is very satisfied, quiet, comfortable, independent living space, like
Perfect place and I will come again.
We are really thank you so much, it was great time on your villa with your staff, a especially Moi is amazing chef
We visited Villa Manta for Christmas and into the New Year. The Villa accommodated 2 families easily with great accomodation. Each room had its own bathroom and views. The common area is spacious with an incredible pool that is a good size for recreation or laps. We had many dinners cooked in house by Muey who is an amazing cook. On New Years Eve we had a great dinner at the Villa and watched multiple fireworks exhibits around the bay. I would highly recommend for those looking for a unique property with amazing staff looking for every opportunity to make your trip amazing.
The villa is more beautiful than the pictures! But what makes it even more special is the personal services provided by the Regina and on site staff Muey and Nu. We celebrated Xmas and New Year along with a special family birthday which were made extra special by the decorations and party atmosphere that were created and of course by the amazing dinners cooked by Muey. The position of the villa is perfect - we tended to hang out in Fishermans Village (for dinners), Chaweng (for Shopping) and Cheong Mon (for beach) which are all 10-15 minutes away with the taxi. Thank you for such a special holiday.
We have had s wonderful stay indeed and enjoyed everything the area has to offer. The villa has been great and we have loved staying here. Moi and Gnu have been superb too.
Thank you so very much. We had an awesome time here and would certainly look forward to our next opportunity to get back here...hopefully soon We go back with some lovely memories and would certainly recommend Villa Manta to our friends back home. And your personal touch makes a huge difference Keep up the good work.
Villa manta, there are no words to describe how beautiful, amazing this place is. From the views, to staff, to everything in between, WOW TRULY AMAZING. We choose villa manta for our honeymoon, the best choose we made. We had sunset dinners as meuy cooked for us. Fantastic food!!! We had the most relaxing time, the staff are amazing. I would definitely say I will return and highly recommend villa manta Thank you for letting us stay at the villa. Xxx
Thanks for taking care of us in the past days. It was great time in Villa Manta. You have the best staffs, in hourse cooking is fatanstic! Unfortunately it’s time to leave. Maybe we will c each other again in the coming future! And I will definitely recommend to my friends.
Thank you very much for you and your staff 's warm reception! My family and I had a great holiday at your villa. They all raved about your villa. Your staffs are very friendly and have good cooking skills. But happy times always pass quickly, we looking forward to come back here next time. Thanks again for your service.
The holiday has been so amazing that we don’t feel like leaving. But I guess as all good things come to an end so has this holiday.
We got much more than we were promised in this Villa and have made some amazing memories. I am so glad I found this villa.
Thank you once again for the great time me and my family had this summer on Samui! Thanks to you and your staff, who did everything for us to make our stay pleasurable.
The villa is a treasure! A real jewel! Can’t even describe the beauty and even more the perfect combination outstanding landscape and second to none breeze. Couldn’t ask for more. No doubt we will be back, we enjoyed very much. The staff are lovely and meals are tasty. Few minor remarks,(we already discussed with Peter) to make this five stars villa to absolutely five stars adventure! Thanks Regina You promised and most important delivered! Hope to back next year for longer time.
A thousand thank yous!!
Wow wow wow!! We have just returned from a week staying at Villa Manta and quite simply, we found paradise. What an amazing villa!! So clean and beautifully set out. Everything was absolutely perfect. The pictures of the villa online are beautiful but the villa in real life is even more spectacular. The space, cleanliness, facilities, views, location, the staff (Nu and Muey), Regina (the owner), Peter (Manager) - all so fantastic. Regina is there to make sure you have a wonderful stay and that she does - from having the fridge stocked with your shopping list, transfers (which are included), local recommendations, she is there to help you with anything. Muey's cooking is amazing, I cannot recommend enough, it is exceptional - I have never seen my children eat so much (particularly her chicken satay!). And oh, Nu's Mango Margaritas were fantastic!! We have tried to recreate back at home but they just dont taste the same :-((. Nu was always on hand for a lift into fishermans village or Chwaeng (there is a small charge for this) which we ventured to a couple of times. We would wake every day to a wonderful breakfast of pancakes, fresh fruits, bacon, cereals, all set up by Muey, then dive into the spectacular pool, followed by a few shots on the pool table! The pool table was particularly loved by the children. The villa is so luxurious and wonderful that we were happy to spend most days lazing by the pool. However if you need to stretch your legs, the Six Senses hotel/Ritz Carlton are not far and there is also a restaurant within walking distance. We have so many memories from our time here at Villa Manta and we want to thank Regina, Peter, Nu and Muey for looking after us so well and for the most amazing week living in paradise!
You can be very proud about your fantastic accommodation. It cost money but it worth gold.
Thank you and your perfect and absolutely skilled and kind staff for making us unforgetable holidays - and especially for me a birthday which i will never forget and always to remember We all love Samui and planing to come again, then sure you will hear from us again
We have a wonderful time here, thanks a lot! And we just had an great Thai dinner from Muey.
Thanks for getting us a great memory here.
“Friendly and helpful host/staff (Muey is a great cook) Gorgeous villa with stunning views Well maintained facilities Complimentary breakfast and airport transfer” There is nothing to complain about!
Thank you for the great vacation. great views, stunning sunsets. Very comfortable villa in general.
Great week at the villa: view is amazing, villa is huge and modern, location is good, staff is attentive to your needs, pool is big and clean. We didn’t do much in Koh Samui but we enjoyed : massage at the villa, kayak in the bay, yoga, big buddha and amazing food in Thailand. Was good that staff can cook dinners: very good overall. I am happy that I choose villa Manta, better choice for a familly than a hotel. Thanks to Regina for a very good communication.
This trip will never be forgotten.Our family are very happy.We had a very happy holiday in the Villa Manta.Everyone is very friendly and the service is very good.Muey is a good cooker .The food she cooks is very delicious.Nu is a warm and honest person.Peter is a nice man.Everything is perfect. 管家特别贴心，人很好，服务好。工作人员特别棒，厨艺好。特别满意。别墅设施齐全，景色很美。舒适宜人。
Our stay at Villa Manta was incredible. The villa is stunning, with incredible views of the water, a beautiful infinity pool and deck, plenty of communal gathering space, and four superbly comfortable bedrooms (each with stellar views of their own!). The location is perfect and no car rental is needed. The best part is the villa staff - Regina (owner) is a pleasure to coordinate with, and Peter (villa manager), Muey, and Nu (on-site staff) are so helpful and never more than a text away. We landed in Samui late in the evening, and they had an amazing spread of snacks, beverages, and cold towels waiting for us upon arrival. They stocked the fridge for us, helped us coordinate speedboat day trips to Ang Thong, organized in-villa spa services (is there anything better?!) and even gave us some rides into town when we needed to pop over to Fisherman's Village or Chaweng Beach. The local beach is a 10 minute walk and is beautiful - it's the same beach that the Six Senses uses. Chaweng and Fisherman's Village are both 15-20 min by cab, and Muey and Nu also helped coordinate large taxi vans to move our whole crew to and from. Plus, Muey is an incredible chef, and we had a fabulous home-cooked Thai dinner in the villa one night! What an experience -we can't wait to go back!!
The villa is stunning and well looked after we are already thinking of coming back
A villa much bigger and more impressive than we thought before arrival. The infinity pool and patio overlooks an amazing unblocked view of the bay, and sunset. Very friendly and service minded and flexible staff, with great cooking skills.
Everything was perfec! We had fantastic holiday in here with my family. If I have a chance to go to Koh samui again, I will definitely stay here. Thank you all staff
I live with my family at the Villa Manta from 16 to 31 January 2018. Villa is beautiful! Architecture and design of rooms at the highest level! Everything is foreseen! All works: all electrical appliances, Smart TV, sanitary ware in perfect condition. Cleanliness -is excellent !!! The staff is qualified, fulfills all requests and wishes! Breakfasts are amazing . Fresh fruit, coffee, other drinks. Very tasty dinners are cooked on the Thai menu !!! We sailed on a canoe to the next uninhabited island! The pool is beautiful, everything is very clean! The layout of the villa allows several families to live on it. Actually this is a small hotel for 4 rooms! Each bedroom has its own separate bath, shower, two washbasins and a small yard, there is a table, chairs, chaise longue. Beautiful views of the ocean from each bedroom! We recommend this villa to all lovers of exclusive holidays !!! We will definitely come again !! We are from Ukraine:)
I can't say enough wonderful things about this villa, the staff and the owner. We were a party of 5 adults and 1 infant and booked over New Years. Regina, the villa owner, couldn't do enough to make sure all our needs were met prior to arriving. The villa itself is well appointed and the views from the main house and bedroom balconies were magnificent. We especially loved that each bedroom was like a separate, mini-hotel room. It meant we could enjoy privacy as well as time with the group. And we adored the food that Khun Moi cooked for us. We even spent New Years eve at the house and organised for her to cook our NYE dinner because we loved her food so much. Highly recommend this villa!
"Christmas lunch is shaping up to be a combination of seafood and BBQ here at the Villa, there is really no need to go anywhere else as there is everything that we need right here, great location, excellent facilities and wonderful cooks so we couldn't ask for a more perfect Christmas Day."
A very cleverly designed villa. All 4 bedrooms have wonderful sea views and their own individual patios with seating and loungers. The live-in staff were very attentive without being imposing and provided excellent service, food - and cocktails!!. A large infinity pool with amazing views across the bay. There is plenty to see and explore on the island and the local people are warm and friendly. A visit to the Friday Night Market is a must!!
I had an absolutely fabulous time during my stay at Villa Manta. The villa is located on an expansive section with a gorgeous view of the ocean which can be enjoyed during the day while swimming in the pool or in the evening as the sun sets over the mountains on the other side of the bay. While staying at Villa Manta we ate out at the local restaurants which were very good, however without out a doubt the best food I had in Thailand was made by Mai, the very talented in house chef. We had delicious spring rolls, freshly caught whitebait, and a lovely creamy thai curry. I also enjoyed Villa Manta's unique and spacious design. As you enter the villa past the goldfish pond and onto the main stairway you really feel like you're in your own paradise. Every room in the villa has a view of the ocean but has also been positioned to offer privacy from neighbouring properties. This gives the feeling of peace and seclusion which was a welcome relief after spending time in the fast paced world of Bangkok. I had a wonderful time staying at Villa Manta Samui and 100% recommend to anyone looking to travel to Koh Samui.
The people here are very friendly and the scenery is very beautiful We are very grateful to the housekeeper for helping us to deal with local affairs
“I advise everyone to check it out, and I would stay there again”
We had a wonderful time at Villa Manta with total 7 adults and 4 young children. The villa is massive overlooking beautiful ocean, it caters for travellers at all ages. The rooms are all so comfy and the hospitality from the staff are top class. Everything is excellent!!!!! We didn't want to leave at all! Moi is a great cook, her dinner and breakfast are better that restaurant, super yummy especially the her tom yum soup if you are spicy lover.
The owner Regina is very kind and responsive, she ensured all pre-arrival requests are well prepared in advance. We will be in touch again soon for our next stay at the Villa Manta.
Thanks for everything!
The villa was perfect, everything we wished for. Could have stayed there forever. The weather was actually ok, no rain at all and not too hot to enjoy being out and about. The staff were great, it was so good having breakfast every morning overlooking the bay. If we return to Koh Samui again we will be sure to check if Villa Manta is available.
Upon entering Villa Manta we were welcomed by a warm greeting, personalized tour, cool beverage and a chilled towel. The entire welcome was infused with what we would come to know as the relaxing essence of Thailand. From booking to departure everything was first class service! Regina, the owner, was quick to communicate, easy to work with, and so pleasant in our exchanges. Everything she promised didn't disappoint - we had transportation to the villa ready and waiting, the staff to greet us, a dinner prepared for the first night, as well as a friendly property manager and remaining team ready and willing to ensure our vacation was spectacular! The house itself is incredible! Four perfectly proportioned rooms to ensure vacation doesn't start with a battle for the best one. All have an amazing view of the incredible sunsets that the island offers. The bathrooms are gorgeous and modern, and the airconditioning is not simply a box that is checked on AirBnB, but actually works and works great! In regard to location, it is set on the upper part of the island that is still being developed a bit, and therefore you won't have the overpowering stress that you encounter in the other areas that we visited on Koh Samui. Within walking distance there is Six Senses that allows for dinner or just a cocktail, as well as other local spots such as an icecream shop and a local corner store for quick snacks. However, both Peter and Nu were always available to arrange transportation to local markets or liquor stores when needed. If you don't want to make the drive, Nu makes an amazing margarita! When a longer ride was necessary, the staff called us a van with a driver who we quickly made friends with and was always available within 10-20 minutes to pick us up whenever we needed him. The same driver even drove us around to two different temples, waited for us, and then dropped us off at the beach for only 700 baht. Now, many of the above items can poasibly be found at other villas, but what stood out the most was the special things that can't be found elsewhere... Peter the property manager is an energetic and colorful character who knows the island well. He led us to several stores so we could have a 4th of July bbq like we were back in the states, and also gave us the best recommendations of where to go on the island. Peter's advice became the only advice we listened to - if he said it, it must be true! The one time we didn't listen we ended up at a location down the road with bugs cooked into our food... and not on purpose! Speaking of food, you will get to experience Muey's cooking once in the evening as well as every morning. I recommend arranging at least one additional dinner - it is amazing! Best Thai food we had!! Muey's skills didn't stop...
All I can say is WONDERFUL! WONDERFUL magnificent home WONDERFUL location WONDERFUL people that own the home. Regina was always in touch, and answered and SOLVED every question or concern I had in a quick manor. WONDERFUL staff. The husband and wife staff were amazing! they were always there for us and took care of every question we had. We never felt like they were being inconvenienced by our sometimes stupid questions. We wish we could have spent more time with them as they were fun to have around. They were a large part of the wonderful time we spent there. We all will miss them, and everything about our stay at Villa Manta. I wish I could buy the house next door!
A stunningly beautiful home with large pool overlooking the water. The staff is friendly and helpful, keeping the property clean. Any of your needs are immediately meet by the live-in staff or via email with the owner. Each room has it's own bathroom with tub and shower and is nicely decorated and spacious. With a pool, pool table, kayaking, games and a spectacular view, you wont want to leave and wish you had more time there. A true once in a lifetime accommodation, we will be going back (hopefully soon!)
We stayed at Villa Manta a couple of weeks ago. There are a lot of beautiful Villas in Koh Samui, but Villa Manta is unique for the following reasons: 1. It is absolutely beautiful and faces west even though it is on the North of the island. We wanted to avoid the hustle and bustle of Chaweng but also stay not too far from Chaweng beach and the airport and Villa Manta is in just the right position. We had the most amazing sunsets from the Villa. 2. The villa itself is classy and modern with a gorgeous infinity swimming pool, open lounge-kitchen area with a pool table and a fantastic surround system. Every day we played pool, listened to music, swam in the lovely warm pool, caught up on our reading and simply relaxed in bliss. There are TVs in every room but we never turned them on even once during our stay as we just loved relaxing by the pool. 3. Muey is an amazing cook and she cooked the most delicious Thai dishes on request. Muey and Nu catered to our every request with the most enthusiasm. Nu drove us to the Golden Buddha and Chaweng beach one day. There is a charge for this, but worth it as we did not want to rent a car. Muey also sorted out our laundry for us. Muey organised massages for us by the pool one evening during sunset. 4. This villa is so well built that every bedroom and the living/kitchen areas have fantastic, unobstructed views of the sea. 5. It's right next door to the Six Senses where we had lunch one day. Six Senses is beautiful, but we preferred Villa Manta because of the fantastic view and privacy. 6. Regina was prompt and extremely helpful with the booking and looking after all our requests. I would highly recommend Villa Manta and are looking forward to our next visit there :-)
My friend Sekha Walsh of ITravel helped me book this villa. Villa Manta was perfect for our group of eight. There is a large open public area for the residences of the house including a living room with comfortable sofa seating, a pool table, open kitchen with large eat in island, spanning to the infinity edge pool. Its a nice area for all to gather and when you want alone time with you special other, you can escape to your private bedroom suite each decorated in a themed color. Most amazing was the staff!! Mui is hands down, one of the best thai chefs there is. She can whip up anything you ask her to make and sets all the meals with a great presentation. She was nice to wash our laundry and after a day's outting we'd come back to our rooms freshly made up. The owners are extremely lucky to have such fantastic team of staff to make sure guests have a great time. I'm dreaming of her shrimp skewers as I type! Highly recommended!!
We stayed as a family of 7 last year and decided that we wanted to stay at the gorgeous Villa Manta again this Easter.
We had an amazing 6 nights and thoroughly enjoyed all the amenities and activities offered by Villa Manta. We were lucky to enjoy a fantastic massage on the new massage tables that are now at the villa.
There is construction going on next door but it wasn't an issue at all, only a small amount of noise and the workers were very good at ensuring our privacy.
Unfortunately it rained 5 out of the 6 days we were there, however with the endless Movies/TV shows/pool table/pool all of the kids were kept entertained.
Muey and Nu were absolutely fantastic and we utilised eating in quite often and the meals were always delicious. Waking up to a breakfast so beautifully laid out every morning was such a luxury. The fruit was super delicious! Lunch and dinner were always so tasty and they accommodated any wish we had for meals.
Peter the Villa Manager dropped around to check that everything was as it should be and he was super helpful again in organising special balloons and cake for Mimi's birthday while we were there.
We don't even bother looking around at other villa options In Koh Samui as Villa Manta fulfils all our requirements for a relaxing holiday, and close to Chaweng if you wish to venture out for the day.
Looking forward to our next visit!
We stayed during Christmas and New Year as a family with grown up kids – 5 persons in total. Renting in a new location (for us) it is always “exciting” to learn how a booking and stay-over will proceed. For Villa Manta I can only say that everything went extremely smooth and with very prompt response from the host. This goes from initial contact in August 2016, questions about this and that before the holiday until we were received in the villa. As important; our stay was splendid. The couple that took care of us in the house did a great job. They were present when needed and quietly disappeared when their job was done. Use their cooking services if you visit Villa Manta. When you look at the pictures for the villa, you may think that pictures are easy “but how is reality?” well in this case pictures do not promise more than they can keep. The villa is just great. It accommodates big families, two families with children or couples that will make holiday together. The separate bedrooms each with luxury bathroom provides for privacy for all participants. The covered terrace, the pool and the sun-loungers are just great. This a great place for a relaxing holiday.
After staying 2 nights in busy Bangkok it was bliss to walk into Villa Manta and see the amazing sea views, with peace calm and tranquility. I learnt to swim in the amazing infinity pool, jumping in at any opportunity I could. My husband tried the kayaks in the sea. The housekeeper Mai is an incredible cook and nothing was too much trouble. If we wanted to stay by the pool all day, Mai would shop and prepare a meal for us for a reasonable fee and well worth it. Her husband Nui makes fantastic margaritas! A picture of the evening sunset is now my screensaver to remind me of the beauty of the place. The rooms are bright and airy with air conditioning and you wake up to that amazing view across the bay. We stayed for 7 nights and this was a great location to visit Fishermans village, Chaeweng, the Big Buddha and to just chill and relax. I would love to come back again to this very special place.
We stayed on Samui for two weeks and decided to splurge a little during the last week of our trip and so we rented Villa Manta. It turned out to be the best money we spent while there. The highlights for us: - the location. it's literally on the water with the best sunset views we saw on Samui. location couldn't have been any better. - the villa. in a word....wow. It's just spectacular and the design is so cool. It feels like you're in your very own mini-resort. I was there with just my family. There were only 5 of us and the villa was more than big enough. - the service. Between Peter who greeted us and is one of the most friendly and thoughtful people we'd come across on the island (just a real genuine man) and the in-villa staff we were treated to 5-star service. We decided to order dinner cooked by Muey and it was the best meal we had in Thailand. If we had to pick one highlight out of so many, this would be it. We love Thai food and to eat a meal pool side while the sun was setting and to have it be home cooked Thai good-ness was something we'll remember forever. - the booking process. We experienced a very smooth, easy going booking process where they followed through on everything that was promised and advertised which hasn't always been the case in our experience when booking other house rentals abroad. I could go on, but that's all i'll say for now. We don't often travel this luxuriously but it honestly felt like a really good deal (compared to hotels where you pay so much more for meals, snacks, activities, etc.) and we would definitely stay there again. Five stars all the way. Enjoy!!
We absolutely loved our stay in this modern, luxurious, spacious, private hide-away with stunning views across the water from every room. The villa is new and had everything we could possibly have wanted for a comfortable, relaxing, fun holiday.
The staff were amazing, catering for our every need. Nu makes delicious cocktails and Muey’s Thai cooking is truly world class. The rooms, grounds and pool are kept immaculately clean and tidy. Nu’s also the go to person when you have a special requirement of the extensive, but rather complicated, entertainment system.
A highlight of our stay was kayaking around Koh Som Island (there are two kayaks with life jackets for guests to use) and being greeted by the inquisitive goats and sheep that live on this now-abandoned resort. Be aware that some of the currents in the channel and around the island can be quite strong, though.
Although the staff frequently light mosquito coils, I still needed to apply some insect repellent to avoid mosquito bites, especially outside in the evening while dining and sipping cocktails as we watched the sun set and the occasional fireworks display across the bay.
Thanks to everyone who make this such a special place to stay. We had a truly lovely time.
Villa Manta is simply fantastic. I stayed there with friends for a week in April and had every expectation met. Rooms are light spacious and airy, the open plan entertainment space and kitchen opening to the fabulous pool terrace are very well designed and easy to use. The view from the villa over the bay to the Golden Buddha and hills beyond is delight at any time of day, but the sunsets can be truly spectacular. Perhaps the biggest delight was the villa support team. Manta has probably the best cook on the island - her traditional Thai cooking is as good as I have had the most expensive restaurants in Bangkok and is well worth the stay on its own. I would definitely go back!
Beautiful home, we can't wait to go back. We spent 2 weeks at Villa Manta in April 2016 with our 2 sons. The weather was amazing, the staff were outstanding. Beautiful pool, the views and sunsets were gorgeous. Great location, peaceful and quiet and the town is a quick and easy drive. Lots of things to do, but sitting and relaxing by the pool was our favourite activity. Beds and showers were 5 star, I would highly recommend Villa manta to anyone. If you want a relaxing vacation and want to stay in a stunning home, then Villa manta is just perfect.
We stayed at this gorgeous villa for 6 nights with 2 adults and 5 children. After our private pickup, Peter, the villa manager, met us at the Villa and showed us around and gave us instructions for using all the facilities within the Villa. He was an extremely competent manager and made sure to stay in touch with us during our stay if we needed anything at all. He even organised a special delivery of balloons and cake for one of the children's birthdays. He also organised 3 amazing Thai ladies to come and give us massages and the girls mani/pedi's.
It is perfectly set up for families, couples and friends. The views and villa are spectacular....the photos are real and it's even more amazing in person. The sunsets are the best I've seen ever! You also go to see the planes on descent into Koh Samui...fun to watch.
All the bedrooms are master bedrooms with huge bathrooms and have everything you need for your stay, including shampoo/conditioner/bath soap. The bedrooms all have their own TV's which are a great addition to have. The beds are all super comfortable and have both fans and air con, as well as views from every room.
We throughly enjoyed the infinity pool, it was a perfect temperature and big enough to swim a few laps if you wanted to. We spent most of our time in the outdoor living area and playing pool, which was a big hit with our teenagers. They also supply board games and a few pool toys for the kids to use, including 2 kayaks.. The TV system is incredible, it had so many movies/tv shows available that it was hard to choose what to watch. It included all new movies (some that are on at the movies at the moment) and was incredibly easy to use.
The staff, Moi and Nu were so lovely and looked after our every need. We enjoyed so many meals prepared by them and the breakfast was fantastic to wake up to each morning with every meal served on a beautiful table setting. They were always on hand to ask questions, organise taxi's...absolutely anything, even making a sundowner cocktail or two.
There were a couple of downsides during our stay, the first was loud music being blasted by the next door neighbours, however that was sorted out by Peter as there was a misunderstanding by them of how to work the speaker system in their villa. The second, were the mosquitoes at dusk time, but you have to be prepared for that in Thailand and Nu was fantastic at putting out mosquito coil's whenever we asked.
You are only a 15 min taxi ride from Chaweng and we went there a couple of the days, the driver will pick you up at the villa and then collect you from wherever you wish where you get dropped off.
I would suggest getting a Thai sim card which you can get from the airport, is was 200 THB for a 7 day stay and unlimited wifi.
We have stayed at a few villas in Koh Samui, however, Villa Manta was absolutely perfect in every aspect and we have found our dream villa for every future stay in Koh Samui. We cannot wait to go back!
Beautiful villa with excellent staff! It's possible to walk down to the sea, though it is a little rocky, but there is a path to a very nice beach area right next to the villa. Rooms are completely separate from each other and the villa overall provides a lot of privacy. I look forward to my next stay :)
WOW! Thats all i have to say first and foremost about this villa. We recently stayed in this Villa for 4 nights with 7 friends. Every single one of us has fallen in love with the villa, every single expectation was absolutely exceeded. Pete introduced us to the villa and the couple who looked after the villa are out of this world. They were always on hand to look after us and went the extra mile to ensure our visit was pleasant. They also speak English and so conversing with them was not much of a problem.........oh, and they are awesome chefs, and I mean awesome! The villa itself is beautiful and has everything you could think of......everything from an awesome sound system, a beautiful pool, entertainment system, a pool table......just literally everything! We have all left our hearts here. This villa is probably the sole reason why each one of us who stayed here have dubbed this recent trip of ours as 'the best trip ever'. Many thanks to the couple who looked after us. And many thanks to Pete who was always on hand to ensure we had everything we needed. The only downside of this place is that there is nothing nearby, so you will need to sort transportation out (but that's also a very good thing, and was the reason i decided to book this villa initially). We stocked up on everything when we arrived, so we didn't have to leave the villa once. We will be returning soon I hope! Awesome Awesome Awesome and highly recommended. Many thanks again!
