We stayed in a Supreme Deluxe pool access room for four nights on our honeymoon and it was heaven! The staff offered fantastic service our entire stay and were always eager to help. The restaurants at the hotel had some fun theme nights, particularly the Asian buffet on the beach where your own stir fries were cooked right in front... More

We stayed at Santhiya for 3 nights in February and loved it. It was so easy to get when you book their boat. The manager greeted us and said he would make this the best experience in Thailand and he was correct. This is perfect for a relaxing vacation with a Thai feel. Besides the nice greeting a with coconut... More

Maybe a good first option would be to read about this place - having an expectation is recommended. I always try to bear in mind that I am in Thailand, not Park Lane or Mayfair. That is to say that five star service is not equal all over the world even though this resort is Thai five star. Forgive the... More

After spending time in busy Phuket and Phi Phi island, it was very refreshing to spend a fabulous 3 nights at Santhiya in Koh Phangan. It is located at the very north west of the island, so it is a bit of a journey to get there. From the ferry, it took over 1 hour in a car to get... More

We had booked a Sea View Pool Villa, but when we arrived we got something more similar to a Hideaway type (room 312). You could see the sea only by standing up on the sun deck. The pool was not an infinity pool so there was a lot of leaves and pollen on the surface. We complained and the manager... More

We had a wonderful 2 weeks at Santhiya and I am baffled as to how people have found significant fault to give this place a bad review! From the moment we stepped off the plane we were greeted and whisked off in an A/C mini bus ( given ice cold lemon scented face cloths and a bottle of water) to... More

We loved our time at the Santhiya. The staff is not only nice and smiley but very up to help with all our questions and requests to make our stay even better. The hotel is on the northeast side of the island and not easy to access by road. However they can pick you up at Samui airport or pier... More

If you are looking for a well run hotel in a idyllic location then I would recommend this hotel. A great place to chill by the pool and relax. Breakfast The breakfast offers a large selection which should suit all tastes and overall is very good. Nice fresh fruit and a great egg station. Given the location, the lack of... More

I use & trust Trip Advisor when booking resorts for vacations & hotels for general travel, I find reviews with numerous frequent contributors generally get things right, However I must take exception to the general consensus regarding Santhiya Resort & Spa Koh Phangan. We stayed 9 days at the end of December & beginning January including New Year’s Eve. The... More
