We loved the hotel. We stayed in the Gardenia Room which was large, had great views, tastefully decorated, and included a nice side room with jacuzzi. The main pool area was also a nice place to relax and unwind and to continue to take in the wonderful views. The service staff were excellent, and the onsite restaurant Blue Ginger was... More

We stayed here in January for two nights in the Gardenia villa, and it's probably fair to say that it was the most luxurious experience I've ever had. From the very moment that we were picked up (complementary, of course) from another hotel on the island, the experience was nothing short of incredible. Upon arrival, we were presented with a...

Sandalwood was the first location in our honeymoon trip, and it sure set a high level of expectations for our upcoming stops. We are only in our mid 30th, but we've been in more than 20 countries around the world and spent time in many hotels and resorts in our country and abroad. Sandalwood, for us, was by far, the...

Loved this hotel from the minute we stepped on the property. The view made it hard to leave our room. The owner, Robert, was delightful and it is apparent that he takes great pride in his villas. Our room was tastefully decorated with hard wood everywhere and so clean! The complementary breakfasts were a highlight of the morning starting with... More

Had an amazing stay here for 4 nights, travelling as a couple. The view is amazing. The staff here were lovely and service was very good. They have a fleet of 4x4s that can shuttle you for free to nearby Chaweng or Lamai beach, (20 mins away) and can also pick up later at night if needed. The mobile phone... More

Four couples who booked two villas for a three night stay here. We had read great things about this place on trip advisor. They also had a good cancellable policy which is why we booked our stay here. Breakfast in hotel was very good with a lot of choices on menu. We also ordered Thai food on another day which... More

We've been to Ko Samui before though this was our first time at Sandalwood, a delightful villa resort we came across through Trip Advisor. We are still missing the amazing view from the balcony first thing in the morning, excellent breakfasts and a genuine warmth from the staff who couldn't have been more helpful when it came to us planning...

Had a fantastic stay, villa was out of this world with breathtaking views of the sea. Staff are very helpful and food in the restaurant was lovely. Resort is up a hill but they provide shuttle bus to the resort and back! Would definitely recommend
