I am sitting in the reception of Sandalwood at the end of a wonderful 8 night stay here. All I can do is echo what others have said about this place, it is wonderful!
With regard to location, the hill is significant but the pay off in terms of view and a quiet location more than balances it. The hotel now have their own taxis which takes away any problems others have noted with regard to difficulties with local taxis coming up the hill.
We stayed in Lotus, it was spacious, beautifully furnished and the added space of having a house rather than just a hotel room was great when travelling with teenagers. The house had excellent WiFi.
We did the cooking course which we all enjoyed.
The staff here are outstanding, they are helpful and friendly and could not do enough for us. What struck us was the way in which the staff took initiatives on our behalf- making sure that the trips we had booked beforehand were confirmed, recommending restaurants etc
We had not been to Koh Samui before so cannot compare Sandalwood with other resorts but if you are looking for a restful break with an authentic Thai feel then Sandalwood is for you.
Thank you to the Sandalwood staff for a wonderful holidayMore
