Santhiya Koh Yao Yai

Luxurious resort set on a private stretch of beach

Located among tropical rainforests and nestled on a private beach, the Santhiya Resort & Spa Koh Yao Yai has a true castaway feel and affords you stunning views across tropical landscapes.

Start your getaway with picturesque scenery, coupled with fresh sea air in the resort’s speed boat transfer, travelling from Ao Po Grand Marina across the Andaman Ocean right to the resort’s private pier and spend lazy days around the huge freeform pool by the beach complete with a waterfall before rounding off the day with a relaxing treatment at the Ayurvana Spa. For meals, two beautiful restaurants await serving Asian and international delights throughout the day.

With just 90 elegant teakwood rooms, suites and pool villas decorated in a traditional Thai style, the resort has an intimate feel. Rooms are beautifully appointed 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 sea views.

a dream to remember

Omer, Israel

When we arrived it was noting less than a dream come through. Beautiful, clean, hospitable and so very pampering. The beach is lovely, the pools clean with a great view, the room, with the Jacuzzi on the balcony, and the view, nothing like it.

Fancy Hotel with Fancy Prices

Cambridge, United Kingdom

Beautiful hotel, beautiful teak rooms with an outside bath on the balcony. Amazing infinity pool with stunning views. Very steep walks up and down hills, but wooden mini buses ferry you up and down. Downside was the prices for food and drink. They state a price then add on a 10% service charge and 7% tax.
