I have visited both hotels (not stayed there though) and I would definitely recommend the Santibury.

However there is a big price difference between them (about 70+ euros per night for the basic room!).

If your budget suffices, go to Santibury.

We were at de Muang Samui last year august for 10 days. We liked it very much. Restaurant and breakfast on the beach, shops just across the road. Very nice rooms. Excellent Spa. Best sunbeds on whole of Chaweng Beach. Best hotel on Chaweng Beach. Not too big and thus very personal service. We wanted to come again this year, but they were already fully booked. So we have booked in de brand new Kandaburi.

I can imagine Santiburi to be excellent, but further away from Chaweng Beach. Played golf on the Santiburi Golf Club. Very nice but very expensive.

The Satiburu looks real nice.. We walked past it last month... But the location is only good if you like it real quiet or are playing golf...

Our shortlist was between the Muang Samui or the Amari Palm.. however we ended up getting a very good deal at this new Kandaburi just mantioned... and have no regrets it was wonderful... If you look at the these resorts.. look at where their rooms are... Some have beach side rooms as well as rooms accross the road...

The Briza is also great... and probably no dearer than the Santiburi... Much better location... unless you play golf!

Go for Santiburi!!!!!

Food = excellent!

Beach = romantic and secluded!

Views = amazing!

Muang is like a jungle at night, enough light to pass through and located in Chaweng on the main street!
