As many others have written, this experience starts at airport with a friendly welcome from the driver. Upon arrival at the resort we were welcomed by smiling staff and the view is breathtaking!

My fiancé and I had recently got married and decided to venture out to Koh Samui to spend our first couple of days as newly weds. When we first arrived to the Sandalwood Resort, the first thing we saw was the breathtaking view of the island. Upon check in, we were instantly greeted by reception and the co-owner of the... More

Sandalwood is a place that I hope anyone who travels to Koh Samui is lucky enough to experience. It is paradise within a paradise. The staff treats you like family. The villas are pure luxury.

This hotel has an amazing view from on top of a mountain. The owner Robert was very welcoming and accommodating to all our needs. Our room was gorgeous and had its own private jacuzzi tub. There's nothing better than having your bed turned down at night, curtains pulled, and a kitkat waiting for you each night!

Second time I stay in Sandalwood. Two reasons why I recommend it: 1) It is a different experience to staying at a beach resort. There are many lovely beachside properties and large resorts scattered around Samui, and around Thailand as a whole; but there are not many mountaintop resorts that offer the view, tranquility, and feeling that a property like...
