We had such a great time at Santhiya. The staff are wonderful and truly make the experience special but it’s the attention to detail and the fantastic feast for the eyes in every direction you look that makes this place magic

Santhiya resort is an exceptional place! Firstly the location is perfect, quiet and beautiful scenery which you’ll never get bored of. The staff were all friendly and helpful. The villas were super clean, modern amenities such as bath, shower and kitchen area. The view from the villa’s pool is enchanting.

The food from the restaurants was to die for, try the buffet as it was very tasty and at a very reasonable price. Do bot forget to make use of the massage area, they’re so talented and attentive to their service.

No complaints whatsoever, book your 4-night stay at this impeccable resort!

Stunning location and fabulous rooms and facilities.
Very friendly and helpful staff.
Would have rated 5* but for a few negatives, drinks very expensive and taxi / boat transfers almost 50% more than local prices.

We came here for our honeymoon and stayed for 5 days. The rooms are so lovely and no where else in the world, will you be able to get the views that you get at this resort. It is so stunning, the smells are delicious, the water gorgeous, the location, just far enough away from everything else in Thailand that you feel like you found a small island perfect to restore your energy. The staff were over-accommodating and extremely helpful. The food was delicious and we were able to take on a new adventure every day. I felt it was big enough to walk around and do something different every day, kayaking, swimming, day trips to other islands, snorkeling, massages, they make sure there is something for everyone.

As everyone else mentioned, it is slightly more expensive, but worth it because of the location and it being a little farther away from the crowds on other islands and at other attraction sights. For snacks and drinks, venture off the resort and onto the small street to get things at an affordable price.

For any couples traveling, this resort has a lot of families and is very family friendly. This isn't a bad thing, but just something to be mindful of. The infinity pool is beautiful, but can get crowded with families and kids throughout the day.

It is worth it to set up spa appointments early in the trip and there are always discounts and packages available, so be sure to ask what types of deals are available.

There are other places to see on the island, even though it is a more remote scene. I would suggest people take the time to venture off the property, do some shopping in the area and support the other small businesses that are outside of the retreat.

Lastly, the website can be a bit tricky when scheduling spa services or transport to and from the island. You have to click around a lot to find what you are looking for.
