“Pool outside our room? Yes!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Pool side hotel rooms made it a treat to wake up in the morning for a quick swim before kicking off the day. We loved it. Be prepared for resort prices but considering the staff, views and a host of other things I would say it is a good value.

We were in there with my wife for 3 days and to be honest...we were very sorry when we have to leave! Hotel is amazing and everything situated in the middle of jungle. Nice swimming pools and easy access to sandy beach. Rooms extremely clean and just beautiful...all the walls and ceilings hand carved..very impressive! Bathrooms are outside in most of the hotel rooms, but it wasn't a great expierience for us as we got a huge lizard on the bathroom wall during the night and we had to change the room...However the reception staff was extremely nice and helpful and gave us another really nice room to change with bathroom inside :-) Huge thanks to Mary Jane Calonsag as she was taking very good care of us when we really need her, extremely nice and lovely person! Overall I wish to say perfect, but we had one very unpleasant situation in the hotel restaurant during the dinner when one of the waiters tried to overcharge us for drinks after the dinner...he was very impolite and only when we asked for the manager he changed then his mind and brought the correct bill :-( Other then that we had really pleasant stay!!! Hotel is a bit expensive, especially boat transfer from Samui should be much cheaper as this hotel is far away from most of the piers! Anyway, taking everything on account, we wouldn't mind to come back in future - well worth it!!!! Thanks for your help Mary Jane!!!

Room Tip: I would consider asking for the room with the bathroom inside if you don't want to be suprised d...

We got a taxi from Haad Rin pier which was 900 bhat for 2 in total. There is a bumpy track from the main road to the resort but it was bearable. The welcome was fantastic and the room was amazing. Loved the outdoor bathroom. We never had any issue with bugs whilst we were there. Glad we got our own private pool. We got upgraded from the junior pool to the cosy suite as it was our honeymoon.
The breakfast was good but not the best I had in Thailand. We only ate at the hotel restaurant once in the evening in our 5 night stay. We went to the BBQ buffet and it was amazing. We would recommend it but I definatly ate too much!
There are lots of lovely resturants in the nearby village. Just turn right when you get to the beach and go over the rocks.
Amazing stay and a bit like an adults Disney Land! If you want to relax this is the place for you.

What an amaxing resort. It is absolutely beautiful. It is on it's own private beach very secluded. However if you need to walk on next beach you can where there is 7/11 you can. But there is no need too everything you want is right here. The rooms are out of this world. They are very clean and have breath taking views. The pool is clean and over looks koh phangnan. It's a big resort and can be a bit distance to walk from the top if that's where your room is to the restaurant and that's just fantastic as they pick you up. A bus runs every ten mins to take you to where ever you want. The gym is fantastic. I found the resort to be reasonable price for good and drink. They had so many nights on thai night, Buffett night etc etv. All fantastic. Room service fantastic. Selection of DVDs etc great. Staff are out of this world very friendly and polite will do anything for you. Each and everyone of them were fantastic so hats off to the staff. They are the best staff I have ever come across in ANY resort. The food is out of this world the breakfast, lunch and dinner is amaxing and you have so more selection. My favourite night was the BBQ night wow all fresh fish. I was blown away by this hotel and all the chefs were amazing very single one of them. I honestly can't fault this hotel and I would recommend it to anyone simply five star. Thanks for an amazing stay we will be back and I will be recommending the hotel to family and friends.

This hotel is breathtaking! We had the pleasure of staying in the sea view pool villa and we were blown away at its beauty! This place is amazing. I didnt read the reviews ahead of time about taking their private sea boat so we ended up taking a ferry then asked the hotel to pick us up. The road to the hotel is under construction so it is very bumpy. The staff is great and very helpful and attentive. The only negative thing I could say is wifi was very choppy in our room. Would definitely stay here again but would ask for a different room. We stayed ina room close to reception and from the siting area we could hear the staff walking by very clearly. Also, in the morning there were some staff workers in the area next to us and we could clearly see them through the fence which lacked a little privacy in the private pool. Would I stay here again? I wouldn't even think twice. This place is literally a small piece of paradise in Thailand!

Dear Khun Aggiegrl82,

Sawasdee krab……Greetings from Santhiya Koh Phangan Resort & Spa – Traditional Thai-style luxury beach resort!

Firstly, we would like to thank you for choosing our resort for your holiday destination.

Secondly, please accept our sincerest thanks for writing a great review about us. It is very
much appreciated. We are so glad to hear that you found our resort is “one of the best
hotels we have stayed at”. The team members here at Santhiya Koh Phangan Beach Resort &
Spa appreciate hearing that they helped you with everything you need. They all love looking after our guests so they can enjoy themselves like you

As you mentioned that the road to the resort is under construction, so we always reconfirm our
guests to book our speedboat transfer from/to Koh Samui. The journey is only 30 minutes direct from Koh Samui to the resort or vice versa, and the price is very reasonable.

We take your comment about the signal of free wi-fi in the room to improve it. So for your next
visit we promise that you will find strong wi-fi signal in the resort.

If there is more anything we can do for you, please let us know.

Thank you once again, and we look forward to seeing in a small piece of paradise again…..soon.

Warm regards,

Panja Nakapong

This place was amazing!
We had been trekking for 2 weeks previously and needed the pampering.

Staff were really friendly! Jackson at breakfast was a bit of a laugh. The reception, cleaning staff were all so lovely! Couldn't do enough!

The breakfast was great but I would avoid the BBQ at night- a bit overpriced I think.

The setting is like paradise and the rooms were just amazing. So comfortable.

Would 100%recommend this!

We've stayed three nights in a sea view pool villa ( payed around 330$ per night, which is amazing value for such room). The villa was amazing, with huge (~30 sqm.) pool overlooking the sea. Truly spectacular.
The sea is a short walk from the room (2 minutes). Note that the hotel beach is average, but a nearby amazing beach is only 2 minutes walk.
The entire hotel and villas are built out of wood, Thai style, and we liked it a lot. The restaurant and spa were also superb.
Bottom line - if you like an amazing and completely private villa overlooking the ocean, go without an hesitation.
