We would highly recommend a stay at this resort. The staff are all so welcoming and friendly and we would especially like to say thank you to the ladies in the Blue Ginger restaurant for always having a joke and a laugh with us. The views are some of the best I have ever experienced and we are already planning... More

They were so welcoming and always had a smile on their face, also so eager to please and help with anything. The owner and another worker Jeff were also very interested in talking to us and offering any... More

Just back from. Fantastic four nights at Sandalwood and cannot say enough good things about the place. The rooms, food, pool, service and staff are all exceptional - and the view! Stunning. If you are worried about the location, don't be - it is peaceful and relaxing and there are three drivers to take you anywhere on the island should... More

We truly loved our stay at The Sandalwood Resort. It's more a Boutique Hotel, with an amazing view over Chaweng. The service is fantastic and the owner is the kindest person you'll ever meet. We highly recommend this little hidden Gem.

We provide many of the services you will find at larger resorts including our Sanctuary Spa, Blue Ginger Restaurant and Thai Cooking School, on-call drivers and an enthusiastic front desk team.

Great hotel, with a very friendly staff. The rooms are very nice with a great view and the pool is amazing.The breakfast was the best we ever had. The only thing we didn't like is that it's on a hill and a bit far away from everything. But the hotel gives you a mobile phone so you can call a... More

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon and fell in love. One of the best things was the fact that it wasn't overly touristy but was still high end. All the staff was amazing and the owner was actually staying there at the time and introduced himself and was incredibly nice and friendly. The food was amazing the... More

Our family of four stayed at the Leelawadee villa and enjoyed the excellent views and warm hospitality of the staff. Having your own spacious villa and infinity pool beats a hotel room hands down any time. Try this for a unique and memorable experience! It is well worth the money.
