Santhiya is a great place to vacate. more of a romantic getaway for couples, though suitable for small families as well. It is definitely a place I would come back to, either with family or friends. Bottom line is that i would recommend it warmly to anyone and would definitely come back there again myself! It is a very good... More

I have no negative comments about the actual resort. We had a fantastic time and the rooms are stunning. We had a deluxe sea view and the balcony was spectacular. The service is also 5*. It loses points for me because the restaurant, drinks, excursions are SO expensive that it kills the experience. The breakfast is great but for lunch... More

We spent 3 nights at this lovely resort and it turned out to be one of our best getaways, despite it being the monsoon season when we visited in August. To get to the resort, we took a speedboat from Ao Po Grand Marina. The journey was about an hour. When we arrived, we were met with warm hospitality and... More

On dec 3th we arrived at Santhiya Koh Yao Yai resort. Transportation was arranged by Santhiya from our hotel in Phuket to the pier as well as the trip by speedboat. The arrival was great as far as the view was concerned and by getting a head and neck massage from staff members of the spa. Transportation to the room... More

Positives: Beautiful pool villa with carved wood throughout. Very private. Great views. Negatives: Air of stingyness in offerings. Mini bar extremely overpriced. (Many items free in last hotel paying half the price - nice and inexpensive touch would go a long way.) Room service meals average quality, small portions. Very minimal other island options. Long delays in pick ups when... More

Beautiful, relaxing and very friendly staff. The attention to detail in everything from food to rooms are really good. Worth every cent! Delicious breakfast, everything from waffles, full english to thai cuisine. Best pool area with really good cheese burgers - well priced. Sea view and garden view rooms are exactly the same and just as nice. Resort in very... More

Spent two nights here after having a fallout with a horrible hotel just next door. Santhiya is one of the most beautiful hotels i have ever stayed in. The staff are friendly, the food is amazing and everything is well priced for this type of resort. Spend enoughtime taking in the beautiful sites from the beach loungers. I would go... More

Stayed 3 nights at a grand pool villa ( upgraded from a 'standard pool villa). The good: Rooms have huge (~40m^2) pool overlooking the ocean. They are pretty private, as it is high above the sea, not facing the swimming beach. The rooms themselves are of very high standard, beautifully built from wood. This is the main reason to come...

i am writing this review from my deck chair sitting next to our pool in the pool villa we have been staying in since 12/12. We were picked up from the airport and taken to the connecting speedboat to bring us to the hotel. This was booked through the hotel and the trip was easy. We were given a head... More

My boyfriend and I went to this resort for 6 nights from the 6th of dec to the 12th of dec and we couldn't believe how beautiful this hotel is. We stayed in the sea view village which has the most incredible view. The hotel overall is just beautiful and everything is so clean and perfect. The beach is great... More
