“Best honeymoon we could imagine!”
Reviewed December 8, 2013 via mobile

We spent 12 nights in the resort and we had a wonderful honeymoon. The villa and its view were amazing. The staff was very friendly and the cooks are fantastic! The live music played during dinner was nice too. There is really nothing to complain about. It is a great place to relax - far away from busy Phuket! One day we will come back!

We have been there one week ago for only 4 nights.
The hotel is not finished yet and we've booked only a room and got a Pool-Villa because the rooms are not finished... only the Pool-Villas :-)
The entrance of the Hotel and the public-pool is very bad because no nice atmosphere.
And it is so expensive for Thailand there. Also the Spa and the meals. The Spa has the same prices like in Switzerland.
The food was good.
The Pool-Villa was very nice!!! ;-)
And the trip to the Phi-Phi-Islands was also very nice but for 120 Dollar..very expensive.

We are 20 and 23 years old and for us it was to calm and the beach is not so nice to swim and it has only 3 other restaurants closed by the hotel.

Room Tip: choose a room and get a Pool-Villa!!! minimum for the next month yet

We stayed at the santhiya resort for 6 nights of our honeymoon and it was amazing! Our private pool villa was stunning we had to keep pinching ourselves to check it was real!

The staff were lovely, really friendly and nothing was too much trouble!

The only issue we really had was the food was not really what we would have expected for the price, the Thai dishes in particular were slightly too westernised, we ate far better food for a fraction of the price elsewhere during our trip.

Also the cost of the hotels speedboat is a little steep, we took the local speedboat ferry service which is 200 baht, with a 500 baht taxi from the hotel to the pier and a 900 baht taxi ride on the Phuket side the total cost of our transfer was 1900 baht for 2 half the price of the hotel transfer! We would definitely recommend this as an option for the more adventurous traveller, a ride on the local long tail ferry at 120 baht is also an experience not to be missed!

Overall we had a truly amazing honeymoon at santhiya and will definitely be back!

We stayed at the Santhiya resort with our two children (who were 5 months and 5 years at the time) in August 2013. We didn't want to leave! The private pool was a big hit with our 5 year old and we all felt incredibly relaxed while we were there. The food was amazing, breakfast was probably the best I've ever had in a hotel in Thailand and the bar and restaurant menu was great value for money. There is not a great deal to do on the island but quite honestly we just wanted to chill out so it was perfect for us. My husband and child took a kayak out one morning free of charge from the hotel. I must give a personal thanks to James who works there, he looked after us very well and our oldest child still talks about how she misses him! And also to the manager Lloyd who helped us in our bid to sterilise baby bottles etc. We will definitely be returning one day :)

you will not believe yourself from the perfection you will find
starting from the great welcoming, more than friendly stuff, and then you will have a chock from the unbelievable amazing villa
we had the private pool villa and it was as a part of the heaven

everything were put into consideration starting from the ocean view, the comfort bedroom, Jacuzzi pool, the all needs facilities in the villa with a remarkable smell
the amazing music that complete the feeling of heaven
tasty varieties of food and very helpful stuff that orient us for hall food; as we are muslims

the most amazing and unforgettable part for couples that you will miss a lot if you didn't reserve the private BBQ dinner on the beach

just when you book you need to coordinate for transportation or reserve the hotel pick up serves
