location is very good although be prepared for 1 hour transfer in 4x4 from the landing Port - there is no roads in the island, only trails.... it rained one day and the pain on the umbrellas and the seats on the beach went on all towels and clothes...the entire terrace was brown with paint instead of white...
The room 241 was just outstanding: a big surprise. All the buildings and all the little details everywhere were very pleasant. We enjoyed it very much. The streets to come to the hotel are lousy, it was a real adventure, but it's not the hotels fault
The Santhiya Resort is dreamy, magical place. Great for honeymooners! The spa treatments were way over priced.
Own pool is simply what you really enjoy when having a romantic or family holiday. Wannabe perfect gastronomy. Food was eatable but nothing for gourmet.
Staff was very friendly and food is great. There is a band singing at the main restaurnat at dinner time, it is very nice!! Road to the hotel is very rocky and so uncomfortable. The spa was average.
We love that place:-)
Very relaxing, the villa was beautiful and the view from it was lovely. We stayed for a week but grew bored towards the end, I think 5days is enough, there's not a lot to do except laze at the pool/beach and there's really limited food choices nearby.
A beautiful hotel in Thai style, with great views and surroundings! Both restaurants offered great food and friendly service. Very romantic night time dinner on the beach. The villas are both romantic and child friendly. Fantastic pool and beach. And privat speedboat to Koh Samui - what more can you ask for?
Since we liked our stay at Rasananda two years ago, we decided to book the same hotel again. We like the comfortable room, the friendly and courteous staff and the location at a beautiful beach and next to a little village with nice bars and restaurants. The food at the hotel itself is pricy compared to other restaurants around. Furthermore the Thai-Food at the hotel itself is rather westernized and therefore less authentic. The prices for the wines are high compared to Europe and the us.
The view, the friendly staff. The luxurious room, the private pool, the extremly helpfull staff, great breakfast and great in room dining. The inaccsessability via the only road to get there was a very unconditioned dirt road, which was dangerous to drive or ride a motorcycle on.
the best in the world
beatiful rooms, amazing spa area
Beautiful hotel and grounds, amazing rooms. Staff were very friendly, beach was idyllic.
The staff were amazing. They were most friendly and helpful. The design and quality of the resort is outstanding. The resort exceeded our expectations.
Excelent resort! Loveley beach, great breakfast and very nice rooms. You pay more for 2 singas in the hotell bar than you do for 2 large singas and lunch 50 meter down the beach, but still. Thai massase in the back of the hotell is 1900BHT, might be very good, but you can get an hour of massase at the beach for 300BHT. That said, we`ll be back. At a resort like this I`d expect a bit more english speaking personell! Pricings a bit confusing. Visited in januar and our room should be about 22000 BHT a night, we paid about 8000. Check around before booking!
wonderful new hotel. room garden with private pool fantastic!! the food is not expectative for a five stars hotel
Beautiful room, great staff!!!!!!!!! During monsoon season the road towards the resort is very adventurous.
Beautiful location, silent, very relaxed ferry transfer was too expansive
The hotel is amazing. Amazing location and great beach. High standard hotel. it's in the middle of the jungle on the beach! Hotel resturant is expensive (for tahiland). beach is 5 min walk from hotel but no problem. it's 45 min drive to hotel in bad roads, hotel bring you to the hotel and back but only once a day.
very good location, easy access to the wonderful beach; it was very easy to rent a moto at the hotel (for a very reasonable rate) which gave us the opportunity to explore the island (very recommendable) the apartment rooms smelled of mould due to the dampness but maybe the bungalows don't have this problem (?); when we arrived there was some confusion about our reservation as the internet was down and we didn't have our reservation number with us but this was resolved after a few minutes
Verry nice bungalow, with great view. Love the hammock on the veranda. Restaurant is point on a hill with stunning views over the beach.
The location of the resort is fantastic with what feels like a private beach. Although the facilities were good, they still lacked in some of the additional services associated with the luxury suites. Simple things like an iron would have been useful.
Great comfort of rooms, great location (only five minutes walk to Haad Rin Beach), clean and amazing private beach, the best Spa service ever in Koh Phangan, The reception staff were very rude. maybe cuz it was the Full moon days and they were fed up with all the crowd, but that is no excuse to be rude & unhelpful. I have changed the booking from double to single, but they still forced me to buy the Full moon Party ticket for two people. at first they said we werent informed of the change, and then when I showed them the confirmation email, they said no you still have to pay for a second person. The Cocktail party was crap and the food & drinks were disgusting.
A simpatia dos funcionários. É um pouco afastado do centro de Chaweng (é necessário utilizar taxi).O pequeno almoço podia ser melhor.
Simpatia de todos os funcionários. Qualidade do hotel, muito moderno e confortável. Se tiverem orçamento para tal, optem pelas "Pool Villas" O mar em frente à praia do hotel, não é de areia mas sim de pedra, aleijando os pés. Recomendo que se previnam com calçado próprio, tipo botas de windsurf.
The hotel is right on a private beach, the location is amazing, near the pier but isolated. The staff is very friendly and helpful, they speak English and good communication is not common in Thailand. Breakfast and restaurant are very good, you can borrow a kayak or snorkelling and other sporting equipment. WiFi is free. Our bungalow was beautiful with ac and sea view, We enjoyed every moment and value for money was excellent.
So peaceful and beautiful! Friendly staff. Lovely design and decor of cabins. I had some bugs in my room.
the staff was excellent, the location beautiful, service was spot on, i would really recommend it to any one that dont mind to live a bit away from it all no
I was not expecting that hotel will be in a different location. I would say Location, Staff and View are very good.
The location is perfect and the hotel is quite and beautifully. We order room service and we food was tasteless. The main issue was that money was stolen from the safety in my room and the staff didn't care and finely they send me to the policy by myself.
Nice hotel, great waiters. The road to the hotel is like a roller-coaster. Terrible location.
Excellent No complaints
Our own smimmingpool enclosed to the big 2-room bungalow surrounded by a beautifull jungle-garten, with the beautifull stunning sea-view over the bay&beach. The personell especially the reception was friendly and always helpfull. The privat large Resort swimmingpool. The bay, the water and the beach was beautiful with non disturbingly noises(music) from the hotels around. The coral house reef is still almost intact and invites for snorkeling. I recommend to choose and book a standart room and negotiate an upgrade to the e.g. pool-villa on arrival; can save you up to 50% of normal charge. Not possible to call out either local or international from the room, which was only possible from the reception. Moderate mold spot on the ceiling in the bathroom over the shower head( which can possibly happen due to the high temperature & humidity). The breakfast was sufficient and good but not varied and only small selection was offered; Thai-food was not offered for breakfast. For lunch and dinner i recommend the "salad hut bungalow&restaurant" in the middle of the bay, as well the "double duke" just next to the Resort which was cheap and delicious, especially for fish&seafood-barbecue.
Nice room, very good food, friendly staff, excellent service Shallow beach
Was fantastic value for money, great pool and beach and excellent relaxed atmosphere on the beachfront. The hotel staff's uniforms! looked like petrol station attendants.
All staff were very polite and helpful and our room was upgraded. The toliet over flowed which was cleaned straight away by staff it contiuned to make noises and smell.
great restaurant. very helpful friendly staff. nice quiet location. they planned a great full moon celebration night. hard bed. room let in too many mosquitoes. the whole room had very poor water pressure so most of the time there was barely even a trickle of water coming out the shower head. we asked them to fix it and there was no change in water pressure.
The hotel staff was extremely polite and very helpful. We didn't plan our trip but the hotel staff suggested exactly what we were looking for. Definitely recommended!
Conveniently located, nice beachview restaurant and swimming pool The cheaper bungalows were quite small for 2 people
nice staff and good food i could hear the boom, boom boom of the music until 2 am, very annoying
