My husband and I spent 3 nights at Sandalwood and we loved every minute of it. Much has been said about the views from the resort, which is absolutely true. Nearly everywhere you look there is a beautiful view out over Chaweng and further. But it is so much more than that as well, it is beautiful accommodations and grounds,... More

We splurged on our ten day island trip to stay here one evening. They sent a car to retrieve us from the hotel we were leaving. When we arrived the staff was very nice and we had welcome drinks waiting. They took our picture before we were lead to our room. Our room was spacious and the view was unbelievable... More

Our room at this hotel was much more than we had imagined. It was spacious with a kitchenette, separate sitting area and a jacuzzi. The room and infinity pool had amazing views. They only have accommodation for limited number of people at the hotel, so the whole experience seemed very personalized. Staff was pleasant and welcoming. They arranged a private... More

We stayed in Jumpee Villa for a week for our honeymoon. From start to finish the service was truly AMAZING. On the morning we were getting married, Sandalwood sent a car to collect my husband to be and our luggage so it could be put in our villa ready for our arrival later that evening. The pool was perfect as... More

everything is great! The service is very good, help us to solve a lot of problems. The hotel on the hillside, the decoration is very exquisite, the scenery is very beautiful The only problem is that the hotel's swimming pool is too small and too deep.

Beautiful views over the sea and very helpful staff. Rooms are very tastefully decorated in a local Thai style. The owner, Robert, was extremely kind and helpful when we had a small problem to resolve and it is clear that customer satisfaction is his priority. We also appreciated his extremely good local knowledge (he told us he has lived here... More

We spent 4 nights here at the Malee Villa in June 2015, we loved every minute of it. We had 3 spa treatments in the spa less than 10 steps from the villa :-) and a Milk bath at our villa. We ate most days at the Blue Ginger restaurant, where they served lovely food and cocktails! The breakfast which... More

This holiday was to relax, enjoy the food and the spas. Our time spent here was well worth it, the calming sea, the stunning sunrise and the sun melting away in the sea at sunset and a dinner on full moon night, it was absolute bliss. We enjoyed the food at blue ginger. So whenever we feel like running away... More

We are sorry to hear that you found Sandalwood to be an average experience. It is sometimes challenging for our guests to appreciate the full Sandalwood experience with only a one night stay on the property. Hopefully, your travel plans will include a return visit to Koh Samui. We would love the opportunity to share with you with a longer... More
