Luxurious tropical paradise escape

Located in an idyllic setting, among 18 acres of tropical grounds cascading down to a private bay, the Santhiya Koh Phangan Resort & Spa has a true castaway feel and affords you stunning views across tropical landscapes and the ocean. With just 99 elegant teakwood rooms, suites and pool villas available, decorated in a traditional Thai style, the resort has an intimate feel. Accomodation is beautifully appointed and designed with natural materials, ornate teak wood carvings and stunning fabrics to create warm interiors that combine an oriental ambience with modern day luxury comforts. For ultimate luxury opt for a pool villa with mountain or sea views.

Spend lazy days around the huge freeform pool by the beach and enjoy undisturbed sea views from the man made waterfall found here, before rounding off the day with a relaxing treatment at the Ayurvana Spa. For meals, fine Thai and international delights can be enjoyed at Chantara Restaurant whilst lighter fare can be enjoyed at the hillside Mahkok Shop & Restaurant. A 2014 TripAdvisor Traveller’s Choice Winner, the Santhiya Koh Phangan Resort & Spa is the ideal choice for those looking for an authentic Thai experience, breath-taking views and luxurious facilities and resort decor.

A beautifully designed resort in Thai style

Gold Coast, Australia

We stayed there recently for 3 nights. It was wonderful from the moment we were gonged announcing we had arrived to the boat trip and trf to the airport. Everything was amazing, creatively decorated and in true Thai style. The pool is huge! We had one off our room and the large one near the beach was ph balanced so it didn’t sting our eyes. Yess!! All the Thai staff were so polite and warm and I loved their greetings wherever we passed them. The gym was very special with a waterfall falling outside the windows. The gardens were superb. The restaurant food is a bit pricey but there’s usually traditional dancers for entertainment or a duo singing pop songs. The atmosphere is so romantic at night overlooking the bay. We tried a Muay Thai session which was heaps of fun and we snorkelled on the beach outside the resort. They harvest their own grey water and it’s pumped into the bay so sometimes it’s a bit smelly. I’d definitely come back to this resort again, it’s terrific!!!

Nice stay with some issues

We stayed for 7 nights as part of our honeymoon trip. We had high expectations for this hotel which is maybe why were slightly underwhelmed at first. We booked the Sea View Pool Villa and upon arrival we found that the 'villa' we were given was quite different from what was advertised. It was more of a bedroom than a villa as the living area was in a completely separate room which you had to cross a bridge over a mini waterfall to get to. I can see that some people may like this, but it effectively meant that you had much reduced space and wouldn't really use the living area in practice. The sea view was also quite limited and the pool was very cloudy. We requested to move rooms to something more like what was advertised and were told that the resort was full that night but could be checked again in the morning. The next morning our room door locked when it closed with our key still inside (it's not an automated door lock so not sure how!) So we went to breakfast and asked at reception for the room to be opened again. Nobody came to open it so after half an hour one of us made the long trek back to reception (couldn't phone for a car as the phone was locked in room) to ask again but again nobody came and we were locked out for over an hour - I had to go out and search for a staff member myself (which is not easy in this resort as it is very large!) and we were finally let in - I found in all other hotels in Thailand (and any other 5 star I have stayed in) that the staff bent over backwards to help with anything but this wasn't the feeling here. After this we called reception who told us a new room was available and we were moved. The layout of this villa is much more what we expected but unfortunately it was completely shaded by trees for the whole day meaning no sun - this basically meant that the villa was unusable for what we booked it for and we requested to move again. The staff on this occasion were very helpful and moved us right away to another villa which was much better and we settled here. There were still issues however, it was very close to the kitchen and therefore very loud and also sometimes had quite a bad smell but we were overall much happier and definitely didn't want to move again! The speakers also didn't work in our room - someone was sent to fix them, said it was done and when we tried again in the evening they still weren't fixed. The breakfast had a really good selection which we enjoyed. We ate dinner at the hotel once, the first night. The food was good but very expensive compared to local options. Other guest told us it was quite repetitive. The rest of the nights we ate in the local village, 10 mins walk down the beach. The prices here were much better value with better food and atmosphere - would definitely recommend this (especially Moon Soon!). Despite the above, we had a really good time and enjoyed our final sea view pool villa very much - it was very relaxing in the end. When we raised our issues with the manager she kindly offered to cover the cost of our transfers back to Koh Samui which was appreciated.
