Secluded resort nestled away in the mountains. Private pool made our stay enjoyable and more importantly, comfortable. However, the cost of travelling to the mainland of Phuket, a 20 minute boat ride, is extremely exorbitant.

Unbelievable Hotel/Resort

Pros: Location
Cons: More english speaking staff. Very hard to communicate
Location: Location & activities were superb
Possible the best views I have ever experienced. The infinity pool & buffet breakfast location gave you a sense of being in the most remote location. Eveything about this resort had amazing attention to detail.

Hotel first class

Pros: Great location,great service and world class facilities.
Cons: Cost of in house services, such as speedboat shuttle, laundry and room service,is a quite expensive compared to local prices.
Location: Great location.Local scooter hire enables you to explore the island. Great little local dining options close to resort.
Stayed at resort for a week and where sorry to leave. Great hotel, views are fantastic. Everything is first class. Staff cannot help enough. Breakfast included was a great way to start each day. Plenty of dining options. Hardest decision is where to spend your lazy day, around the pool or on the beach. Great experience.

This is paradise!!!

Pros: Stunning location, breathtaking views, the amazing pool area, the resort itself with the traditional & inspiring accommodation, professional service!
Cons: Wi-fi connection.
Location: Plenty of activities available at the resort although we were unable to use due to the weather and time constraints. Very relaxing stay.
We have just returned from this amazing resort having spent 1 spare night here on our way home. It was definitely a highlight of our trip and we have vowed to return and stay longer. Absolutely stunning resort!!! Loved everything about it. Everything from our hotel pick up, transfer via speedboat, professional & friendly staff, accommodation, restaurants, pool, etc was fantastic! As it was overcast when we arrived, we decided to walk up the short hill to check out the location of the restaurant for breakfast the next day. Upon arrival we were overwhelmed by the breathtaking views, the amazing infinity pool, daybeds for relaxing and the wonderful restaurant/bar area. As it started raining, we decided to relax on the daybed, enjoy some cocktails and take in the scenery. What a way to pass the time!

Large Comfy Resort 90 Mins From HKT

Santhiya is so big you ride in the back of a gorgeous wooden ute to get from reception to your hillside villa, but thanks to the helpful attentive staff you'll never feel neglected or lost among the crowd. And yes there IS a crowd for most of the day down at the tiny private beach, which reminded me more of some dreadful Mediterranean holiday than SE Asia. Thankfully the restaurants and bars behind the beach are spacious and light, the staff are all smiles, and the food they serve is excellent. Likewise the hotel restaurant up on the hill is worth the bumpy ride. My only major gripe with Santhiya is one that originates outside the resort: the dreadful state of the Andaman Sea. Please, people of Earth, stop throwing your trash in the rivers and oceans because it's ruining paradise piece by seemingly indestructible piece.
