Beautiful Romantic Island Resort
Great Experience.

Beautiful resort was a memorable stay
The resort is in such a quiet location with only 3 other resorts on the beach which is long. The food was spectacular and lots of options in the resort as well as a couple of options outside the resort. Activities such as free kayaking was fun to keep you occupied. Tge transfer by speed boat was very expensive 900baht pp each way for a 25min ride. The staff are all lovely. The deluxe seaview room was breath taking with unobstructed views and a very private balcony with a huge bath tub. The room was so spacious and there was night turndown service. The resort was huge with a shuttle service throughout the resort and it was a quick service. Breakfast was amazing with so many beautiful options. We would stay again and would highly reccommend.

This hotel was perfect for my honeymoon. The rooms were just as advertised. The woodwork stunning like being in a wood elf kingdom. The staff were super friendly and the breakfast buffet was the best. They have an amazing infinity pool. And their normal pool has a waterfall the mini jacuzzis were out of order when we went which was a bit disappointing though The Thai massage were really nice. You can enjoy thai dance and boxing lessons. The instructors are really cool. Don't leave food in the rooms though as ants will get into it, when you order room service staff will come by and pick up your tray. Also they use a non toxic lemongrass spray for bugs. Our room was facing the sea on the last hotel one draw back was construction happening down below and a filtration system that would make a sewage smell on the balcony on occasion. But that didn't dampen our impression of this amazing resort.

Awesome! Splendid scenery and view!
If you wanna have a peaceful, cozy yet close to nature holiday. Santhiya would definitely be your choice. It feels great to rest on the balcony and watching the sea. Let alone the bath tube. The only place that might be disturbing is that it's too close to nature. We witnessed two tod. One in the bathroom, one on the door. But. It's still acceptable.

Best resort I have ever been!
Very good facilities, rooms and decorations. Food isn't the best and slightly expensive. It's acceptable since it's a luxurious resort. You may find cheaper boat transfer from bang rong pier.

Amazing People and Hotel!!!
Amazing place... don't have words to describe how this hotel is great. 5 stars. Amazing people always helping and making things comfortable. Food is perfect and price is really affordable, was best vacations that i had in TH just relaxing on the beach and having cold beer. Internet connection is available as well don't expect a high speed connection like a big city, internet provided is very good if you see the location that you are in. strong recommend because staff, food, hotel facilities and most important is a paradise. It's beautiful! Thanks

BEST Resort in Thailand? Yes.
We can't say enough good things about Santhiya. The staff was OUTSTANDING, so helpful and friendly, from the reception to food service staff to security and everyone in between. Also many strong english speakers. The resort itself is stunning - so much extraordinary carved wood detailing, with beautiful thai art everywhere you look. You get both sweeping oceanviews from your room, and an intimate oceanfront experience at the restaurants and on the beach. The buffets (breakfast and dinner) are delicious. There are also lots of free activities, for people like us on a budget (yoga, muay thai, thai dancing, paddle boards, kayaks, etc.). Only 2 (very slight) drawbacks - the resort is huge, so shuttles are required between your room and restaurants/the beach/the spa (you just need to be patient and plan ahead). And the spa is quite expensive - 5 times the price of any massages you could get in a thai village anywhere else.
