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.

This is a gorgeous place to stay! The view is simply stunning and everything about the hotel was beautiful. The view from the pool is even more amazing than in the hotel photos.

We love this accomodation. It is very cosy while there are about 10 villas, all with some great mountain view. Breakfast is very complete and nice. The food in the restaurant is very delicious. Staf is friendly and helpful. This place means rest, relaxing and enjoying. Going back to Koh Samui means going back to Sandalwood for us.
