We have stayed at the Santiburi several times, the most recent visit being 12 months ago. However, we were really looking forward to this visit as the hotel had been closed for several month for refurbishment and were not disappointed. The hotel is located in Mae Nam which is quieter than some of the beaches on Samui, but it also... More

We came to have lunch here at the beach restaurant with the family. We booked the night before. The hotel was extremely happy to take the reservation but on arrival we were greeted by reception who took a second to tell us that we were not allowed to use the facilities of the hotel. We understand the hotel policy but... More

I have known the hotel for some 20 years , and have seen the property nicely evolve over that time . Frankly I have never seen it looking better , and the recent subtle enhancements to the villas are super . Simple uncluttered Thai Elegance . Fantastic mature gardens surrounding a huge pool . And in my view the very... More

Spent over a week here in February, could not fault the place, location on the beach is great, staff where faultless and happy to help in any way possible. Great service and loads of extra touches like free water by the pool and beach and delicious fruit and ice cream daily to help keep cool, would definitely recommend.

Just came by the golf club by chance and had a coffee and its was really good. Had expected to pay top price but it was very very reasonable and in a stunning location. I really enjoyed it here in this tranquil location with sea breezes and I will return soon for lunch

Eleven years we spend our holidays in this super beautiful resort. We always liked it very much, but were really surprised this year. All the villas are totally renewed and are now divine. Also the new restaurant on the beach is marvelous. The management and the architects deserves our most sincere congratulations. We surely come back next year

I have already stayed in some pretty nice hotels but certainly Santiburi is the best hotel that I stayed in my life so far! The rooms, swimming pool, common areas, etc are just perfect. Above all, you are treated by all staff like a king/queen: apart from all the regular services that a great 5-stars hotel can offer, they still... More

My stay at Santiburi was outstanding. I know the resort from 20 years ago, when Santiburi was the only 5 star property in Koh Samui. Today there are many, and I made the effort to see some of them this time, Intercontinental, W, Conrad, Four Seasons... Still I find Santiburi the best, excellent location, magnificant palm garden, you can easily... More

I am staying at Santiburi for the second time now and once again they have not dissapointed. Everything is picture perfect and up to the standard of what you would expect from a five star resort. Staff are friendly and genuine, the rooms are beautiful and spacious (recently renovated), the food is divine and the overall atmosphere forces you to... More

I spent 3 nights at Santiburi and enjoyed my stay, food great and the staff very friendly. Large hotel with good size pool. We rented a car and this gave us the freedom to get around. We ate out most nights and always liked to come back to our suite. If you rent a car then go to Bangpor beach... More
