We spent almost two weeks on Koh Samui island and tried a variety of different hotels from low to high end, with varying results. Our last night was spent at this very friendly and well designed ten villa, hilltop luxury hotel/villa cluster. Most villas have private pools, beautifully designed villas and spectacular views. Beware, you CANNOT take a normal taxi... More

The villa was very nice, complete with a king size bed, separate bathroom with shower, and a separate room with a bathtub. The villa also had a patio, which was very nice. Although, not much of a view from our villa, the lobby and... More

When I was browsing photos on Tripadvisor searching for interesting hotels and planning my trip to Koh Samui, Sandalwood Luxury Villas impressed me with its photo of an astounding view.
