Wow”
Fantastic resort, to summarise pros pretty much everything in my opinion, cons the food/drink was slightly overpriced which is to be expected but I feel the pricing was not proportionate to how much things cost, e.g a bottle of small water was more double what it would be elsewhere. Overall had a faultless stay!

Impersonal money machine - not relaxing ”
Downsides: - It is a massive complex: need minivan to go from one place to the other - First night, we wanted to have a drink at hotel bar to watch the sunset. When ordering our drinks, we asked for a mosquito spray as well. Response: “hotel doesn’t provide mosquito sprays for free, you can buy it in our shop”. Even the cheapest restaurants in Thailand provide those for free. So we just canceled our drink and went back to the room. - There is a bathtub on terrace but the signs for hot and cold water are switched so took us 15 minutes to figure that out, and then the fan on the terrace makes so much noise, it’s like your next to an airplane. - Entertainment, which means load music blaring everywhere (“bingo” evening, seriously?) - Inflexible and irritating “rules first” approach to service. - WiFi: need to re-enter the code each time to open a device (who is going to access it anyway?) - Towels: irritating/annoying system, need to register every time you use them. - Staff overworked

Excellent stay, albeit not cheap”
We stayed in the royal villa (the two story one). Santhiya was probably the favorite part of our honeymoon. It is literally the edge of paradise. Everything was fantastic, but honestly, for the price you pay in the villas, it had better be fantastic. Not for the faint hearted, you will run up additional expenses quickly. Worth the money for our honeymoon, but we could cut costs by staying in a room (not a villa) next time.

Beautiful grounds, terrible service - do NOT recommend”
The villa we had was beautiful, but needed upkeep. Ceilings drip with rain, the wood was worn throughout. Our biggest issue was the terrible service. From pick-up to check-out, workers seemed unhappy. Our van ride from the airport to the pier was the most terrifying I've ever been on. This was not the same of ANY other ride or taxi I was in in the entire country. At our check-in, we were given the hard sell for a spa package (tacky), and we were told that if we needed a ride that we just call and they come pick us up. I said that it didn't seem far and that we could just walk. "No madame that will be a 20 min walk." The first FOUR times we called it took over 1/2 hour for them to pick us up. Also, it was maybe a 10 minute walk. So we just stopped calling for the ride. At the 45 min checkout, they said we took out a beach towel and didn't return it - we didn't, and the beach towels were not good. After all the $ spent, they were harping on us about a ratty towel. Will not return.

Awesome Stay”
Celebrated my fiancee's special 30th birthday here and we love every moment of it. The resort itself is amazng, very exclusively secluded in a beautiful beach and jungle hill setting, the view is amazing. Our room was splendid. My fiancee was sweetly surprised twice at brakfast and dinner time with the whole staff sang happy birthday to him, the food is amazing, the facilities are a lot. For the duration of our stay, we really dont need to go out of the resort as everything is provided. Special thanks to Fiat at By The Sea Restaurant and Bar to sweetly arrange the surprise for my fiancee witha gorgeous voice of the band. Mona and Kwang at Saaitara Restaurant also have been very sweet to us on the birthday breakfast. We hope that we could come back again next time. Should anyone also need a transport to the pier or to anywhere around the island, dont hesitate to contact Mr Band Sit at 0899706863, he is very helpful and cheap too :)

This is an absolute amazing place to be. Staff is always been so smiling and accommodating. Being a vegetarian in my dietary preference, these guys made all the efforts to make me vegetarian dishes. They even excel in all. If u going that side of the world, then make sure u stay at this place. Though the island Koh Yao Yai have nothing much to do, this resort itself pampers u a lot. Though transfers to and from this resort is bit tricky and costly.

One of the best views you ever see ! The hotel inside a jungle so basically you sleep with lizards, ants, cacruches and other bug life friends. If you don’t really care about it you will enjoy a top facility and view! A bit expensive to get there and to eat but it’s ok. Staff is super nice and understanding! Enjoy

Great place to relax with awesome views”
Everything at Santhiya was perfect. Rooms are beautiful, everything is made of wood. Views from the balcony, the restaurants and the infinity pool are awesome. Even during the rainy season there are plenty of places for you to sit down and relax so you are not confined to your room only. Staff is very friendly and professional. They also organize Thai boxing and yoga classes and you can do some kayaking on the sea. Overall it is a perfect place to wind down and relax. Some things to note which may not appeal to everyone: - The resort is huge so they have cars in which they transport their guests so it is a bit time consuming. - Prices of food and drinks at the resort are high considering it's Thailand and Thai menu is a little bit limited. But there are some local restaurants not far from the beach where you can go for a change. - Overall it is very resort style holiday destination which is not everyone's cup of tea but if you want to relax, it's perfect place.

Nice resort but the staff was horrible and unhelpful. When we checked out they didn’t load jacket to the taxi and we only noticed that when we arrived to Phuket. We sent messages through Fabecook and they just didn’t help us. Until at some point after a few days they just didn’t reply back.

Resort is beautiful. Our room with seaview and balcony with tub was perfect. Nice to hangout. Beautiful beach where you can swim. The breakfast is amazing, with fresh and good coffee. Never had such a good service and friendly staff at a resort ever before. Ofcourse the food and drinks are a bit more expensive than at a regular resort, but not overpriced and worth it. The best resort we have ever been.

Wow, think I found paradise!”
I was a little apprehensive before going because I read the bad reviews. I was given the impression that the hotel was run down, staff were rude and food was extremely expensive. What I experiences was the total opposite. The hotel was so beautiful. I loved the room and the balcony so much. Our every whim were catered to. Yes, food in the hotel is on the more expensive side. But for a 5 star hotel, it wasn't that bad. We had plans to venture out of the hotel in search of cheaper food but we didn't even head out. We ate in the hotel everyday. My facorite was the Pier Club day on Fridays. You eat on the jetty in the middle of the sea. Can't wait to come back.

Beautiful resort”
Amazing view, they treat you like a VIP. Had quite a good experience except for the spa. Upon checking in, there was a promo buy 1 free 1 for 2700+ baht for 1 and a half hours massage. Even with the promotion, I still feel over price and not worth it. My Husband and I were 15 mins late as we were doing our check out. However, they are very strict on timing and cut short our massage. I felt that they shouldn’t treat us that way as the massage in the first place is not cheap. I wished they had offer me to change my package to 1 hour massage instead and refund me the balance. They are also very strict on check out timing.. not able to do any late check out. But pros is that if you arrive early and there’s rooms available, they can will let you have the room earlier than the usual check in time.

Great resort with luxury villas. It’s approximately 20-30 mins by speedboat. You will need to call every time to go from your villa to the reception/ breakfast: beach etc. since it’s a big resort on an island up on a mountain. I had the 2 bedroom pool villa. Pool villa upstairs awesome, downstairs outside like a second villa not within the first. Children should be old enough in order for them to go from 1st room pool villa upstairs to the 2nd villa downstairs. Wonderful place.

Beautiful stay!”
The resort is beautiful and the property is impressive. They have many activities available such as Yoga, and muay Thai boxing. The beach is beautiful and the property has two pools availabke, both great and never too crowded. They have many options for food, but our favorite was the restaurant near the infinity pool. There are endless possibilities for seating all over the resort with breathtaking views of the beach. Due to the size of the resort there is a shuttle which is necessary to get from the rooms to the beach and back again but it is usually quick and easy. We enjoyed our stay here. Just know that there are not many options for food nearby, so you will have to eat mostly at the resort unless you get a ride to the nearby town, which can get pricey after a long stay, but it is to be expected for a resort on a secluded island.
