We stayed here for 12 nights at end of November in a supreme deluxe room. The whole resort has a wow factor as you approach it by speedboat from the mainland. Our room was large, very well appointed and had a great balcony with a double day bed and a double bath tub. The

This is an incredible resort. The views from every room are breathtaking, the pool and ocean are a wonderful temperature and are super relaxing. Considering it’s a resort and 90% of the island is Muslim, bar prices are average. Maybe a tad bit better than going to a resort in

Thankfully we were only staying two nights as a go between two other destinations. Nice enough room with a fabulous view and a really comfortable bed. Beach is nice but we found the infinity pool which was loads more relaxing. First night we ate in the restaurant ‘by the

After much researching, we decided to spend the first week of our honeymoon here, and we are so glad that we did. The resort is beautiful and the views are spectacular. The private beach is clean and inviting. We felt utterly spoilt to be staying there. The check-in process

Dear marcge30, This would be take around 30min by van to Ao Po Grand Marina pier to connect with our scheduled speedboat 8 times a day

I emailed the property a few times and got a response within 2 days both times. Use both of these emails. info.syy@santhiya reservation@santhiya If you fly into Phuket airport, its a 30 minute drive to the marina and then a 25 minute trip by speedboat to Santhiya's private pier. I recommend paying the extra money to use Santhiya transfer. If youre more adventurous, you can arrange the drive from the airport and then find a boat from the marina. You are not able to be dropped off at the hotels private pier unless you take their transfer service. Therefore, if you find your own ride you will also have to arrange for taxi service to the resort once you get to koh yao yai. Transfer with the hotel was super easy and I would highly recommend booking with them if you don't want to have to worry about the hassle of transfer on your trip.

"Rooms on the left do not have the balcony in front of trees. Don't leave the window open. Take mosquito repellent with you!!"
"One in a other resort unless you are a sound sleeper or want to wear earplugs"
"Ask for building 5, sea view!! Amazing"
"If you stay in hotel 2, ask for 3rd floor. Much easier to get to vs floor 2, and 1."
"Avoid at all cost"
