This is by far, the best boutique hotel we've visited in Thailand. Hillside location is most romantic, with panorama view of the island, near beautiful and quite beaches. Every villa (there are only few:) has its unique advantages, we staid in 3 different villas when visited. The staff is absolutely great, they always smile, they helped us with everything and...

Warm welcoming by very attentive staff, picked up from the Airport and taken straight to the resort. We stayed in a lovely villa but we requested a move because of building work going on in the plot next to Sandalwood. We were moved to a fantastic villa with the most dramatic and stunning views across Chewang beach. The staff are... More

My wife and I stayed in the Amarynth villa at sandalwood for our honeymoon and absolutely loved it. Yes, it is on a hillside, yes there are geckos, yes it is outside of town. That being said, without being on a hillside it would be impossible to get the stunning views they provide. The geckos are only outside and are... More

One week stay from 11 May 15 in Leelawadee villa. The view from the infinity pool was worth the price alone. Stunning vista from the hill across the bay. Huge 3 bedroom villa with verandahs and out door spa bath (jacuzzi) and that pool! We only used one bedroom but it would be outstanding value if sharing with family or... More

We loved our stay in the Malee Villa at Sandalwood Villas. View was sensational and we loved the space and privacy the villa offered. Staff were delightful and nothing was too much trouble. Although it is a little isolated the car service available was excellent with immaculate cars and excellent drivers so very easy to go out for dinner or... More

We had an amazing stay at Sandalwood Luxury Villas for 5 days from 26th April till 30th April. Since we were a family of five, we had booked the Leelawadi villa (3 bedrooms with private infinity pool); which definitely appeared to be the biggest villa at Sandalwood, and most definitely the villa with the best view of the wide ocean....

its really nice here, except the traffic in here is really inconvenient. We have to call a car to pick us up all the time when we want to go down the hill. The hotel is on the mountain. The sea view of the hotel is really really nice.

As we booked our ten night trip to Thailand we knew we did not want to compromise on accommodation even though we were travelling/moving from Koh Samui to Koh Phangan to Koh Tao and then to Bangkok. We landed in Koh Samui and were promptly met by our free transfer/air conditioned car courtesy of Sandalwood. We then got checked in... More
