Amazing extremely large resort

We were surprised how large Santhiya resort is, room we had was supreme deluxe sea view and it was gorgeous, takes a while to get from rooms to beach via carts so don’t leave your sunglasses in your room. Breakfast choice very good, meal at Sea basket wasn’t good, service slow, lots of kids running around & expensive, didn’t try others we ate out.

very unique hotel

Pros: uniqueness and the views
Cons: better shop on the site and the transport should be discounted
Location: beach fresh food local life which is very quite and unrushed
great views and absolutely amazing place. booth pools are great and the infinity pool is so unique. food was lovely and fresh especially their breakfast buffet. room very specious and clean and comfy. I was missing a shop with groceries on the site. their gift shop is cute but selling crisps and chocolate bars only which are overpriced. boat transport comfortable however overpriced. hire yourself scooters and go around the island. just amazing!

Christmas Eve by the sea

Perfect location but not convenient for people having difficulty to walk though the shuttle service inside the compound is well organized. Price is very competitive for the high quality of this hotel. We had a very nice Christmas Eve by the sea and Santa Claus visited us surrounded by Thai angels!

Nice hotel to get away from it all

We stayed at here for 6 nights in August 2016, resort was very nice with some nice touches. Restaurants were a bit expensive for the quality of food on offer as was the transfer to the hotel. However the free water sports available was great and the view from our room was lovely. Staff friendly and helpful, the grounds were well kept. Breakfast experience was quite nice, if a bit limited in choice. Nice touches for private dining at the Japanese restaurant. The resort is a little isolated if you want to wander around some street village/markets, but the Spa was a good experience and the yoga and Thai dancing classes included are a nice option. We enjoyed our time and would recommend to either couples or families wanting a relaxing vacation.
