Review of Santhiya Resort


Santhiya was the second luxury hotel to be built on Thong Nai Pan Noi. It is an ambitious project that uses teak wood and lanna architectural styles to create a resort with a distinct character. Santhiya boldly sits on the rocks on the northern end of the beach. It has its own beach that makes it slightly detached from the rest of Thong Nai Pan.


Santhiya is accessed from a road that goes over the hills at the back of Thong Nai Pan Noi or by walking over the rocks at Thong Tapan Noi.


The resort has luxury villas, the more exclusive of which feature private pools with great sea views.


There are three restaurants. The main one, Chantara has a wonderful balcony and specializes in fresh seafood, BBQ and steaks.


The communal pool covers 3 layers and includes a giant waterfall.


Although Santhiya is not cheap, it has been running for a number of years now and it has developed good service that makes it worth the price.


Santhiya Resort also features a Spa called Ayurvana that offers a full range of beauty spa treatments and massages. You can have a massage and enjoy the spectacular views of the bay.


Over the years, Santhiya has become a very popular resort for families and honeymooners; and for those who want both luxury and unspoiled nature.


Santhiya offers speed boat pick-ups and transfers to Koh Samui for those wanting to catch a plane. It also offers excursions, kayak hire and money exchange.
