I can't recommend this place enough after spending four nights there with my husband and mother. The hotel excels on all fronts--property, food, rooms, service, the Thai massages. So much time and thought has been put into every detail and the beach is gorgeous! Never had such glorious swims anywhere.

We've just returned from a week at the Shantaa & would agree with most of what has been written previously. The Shantaa was one of the best resorts we have stayed at in SE Asia, excellent clean rooms, we were in a "Shantaa Sweet", very friendly & helpful staff and delicious food, it is unusual to stay in a resort for a week and still find the food interesting. In summary, the Shantaa is an excellent hotel on an, as yet, unspoilt island - but get there soon.

if you have "done" phuket and phi phi etc, love the food, the people and the country but want somewhere a bit different then koh kood and shantaa are for you. i actually think it beats all the usual destinations hands down. koh kood is a small under developed island reachable from bangkok by a 4 hour car + 1 hour speedboat journey; but it is a million miles from the pace of bangkok. the island is still covered in forest and hides away 2 stunning natural waterfalls that are a must see. hire a scooter for about 400bht/day and you can literally go round the entire island in one day taking in the fishermans village in the north - definately stay for food - and many little bays and beaches and just enjoy real local life plus the beautiful waterfalls.
But the jewel in the koh kood crown is Shantaa. Being family run with a maximum 30guests it is truly up there with the best hotels in the world. in fact the six senses have a hotel on this island but whilst costing about 10 times more probably doesnt come close to Shantaas laid back ambience.
if you treat yourself to stay in one of the 5 "sweets" you have a fantastic outdoor bathroom/shower (no issue with damp or creepy crawlies etc) and king size bed with a perfect sea and sunset view through the palm trees. the hotel's private beach next to the quiet pier (only guests/fisherman) is reasonably compact but just the overside of the pier is over a mile of empty palm fringed beach. grab some water, towels and beach mats from the beach bar, pack yr book and suncream and find your secluded spot for the day. the sea is a stunning turquoise and is shallow and warm enough to cater for all abilities.
one of the many highlights is the food. we stayed 8nights which is always a concern if the place doesnt live up to expectations. we had therefore planned to eat out a bit but after our first night and read through of the menu we felt no need. if you love thai, fresh seafood, and quirky house specialities then you will also eat in everynight. i think i only ordered the same dish twice - the house salad - because the variety on offer was simply amazing. plus although not included in the room rate the food and drink prices are incredibly reasonable.
we have recommended this place to all our friends and family because we cant think of a better hotel in thailand that can match Shantaa's hospitality, food, location and incredible value for money. go now before time catches up with this place.

Went to Shantaa in Dec for our honeymoon. Our room was beautiful, not right on the beach, but about 50m back with an amazing view through their beautiful garden down to the sea.
The staff were amazing and made everything so special for us, even without our asking. On our last night, for example, they reserved their best table for us for dinner and added some candles and special flowers to make it more romantic.
They were also always smiling and friendly.
The menu at Shantaa is large, and everything we ordered was delicious, fresh and perfectly cooked.
The island itself is also amazing, totally authentic with no big ugly developments or overcrowded "beauty" spots. Everywhere we went it felt like we were there almost on our own.
It is also great that the resort is owned by a local Koh Kood family who are on site at the resort and can give you good tips on things to do and eat etc...
Prefect honeymoon.

An absolutely fantastic place. The rooms have so much charm, the restaurant serves delicous food, the island is unspoilt by mass tourism, the staff is absolutely great. We have had four fantastic days at Shantaa and would not hesitate to go back. Next to the small beach with a bar (also serving food), there is the biggest pier of the island - however, we did not find that disturbing, we enjoyed watching the goings-on and did not find it noisy. On the other side of the pier, there is a long beach inviting for sunset strolls. Romantic!
