We spent five days at Sandalwood Luxury Villas, in two different villas. Both villas offered us amazing views. One of them had it's own jacuzzi on the balcony, which we really enjoyed. Also, we loved the main infinity pool. It's never busy there, so most of the time you have the pool for yourself. We are looking forward to visiting... More

Sandalwood luxury villas is by far the best place of the four places we stayed in our 3 weeks in Thailand. The villa really was pure luxury with its own jacuzzi and a balcony with the perfect overview of the entire Chaweng bay. Words cannot describe it! The house we was in (Jasmine) had a pool right beside it. It... More

We spent five days in the Amarin villa. The villa is very spacious and the private balcony (with amazing views of the sea and Chaweng beach) has a great jacuzzi. Sandalwood's main infinity pool is great; it's never busy there because Sandalwood "only" has 10 villas (some of them have their own pool), and the views are great. The hotel... More

Stayed in several villas, each one unique & beautiful in its own way. The views are stunning & every member of staff always smiling & genuinely helpful. You don't get such a stunning view in the middle of any town, so yes it's up a short steep hill & it is an out of town hotel - that's what makes... More
