Thank you for a great Honeymoon!!
My wife and I visited the Resort as part of our stay in Thailand for our Honeymoon. The Resort is absolutely beautiful. We were unsure what to expect and wondering if this resort might be too chill. It wasnt, you can make it what you want. They had plenty of activities and excursions. We visited the Phi Phi Islands. They have their own private speedboat to take you there so, you werent packed in like a lot of other tours. The staff at all the restaurants treated us first class. Special shout out to, LOKEN! He always greeted us with a smile and willingness to help. He remembered my wife and I favorite drink and provided us with great conversation. His colleages, Rajat, Jeto, Sumit and Riti also did the same. Santhiya is lucky to have them on board. My wife and I cant wait to go back and see them again. I didnt even mention the rooms. The decor of the rooms and views were breathtaking. If I had once concern, it may have been the need to take a small shuttle to your room since its uphill and a ways from the beach. No worries here, I dont think we waited any longer than two minutes to get a ride up or down from our room. We cant wait to go back to this beautiful wonder. Cheers from Chris and Rubi!!

Just ok.
Well I have mixed emotions about this resort. Staff is nice , but need better training on service. Location perfect. Rooms were beautiful and far exceeded expectations. My biggest complaint is I felt It wasn't a good value. I dont like paying 4x times drink prices and food prices. I understand it's a resort and everything is going to be expensive but not that much. . Breakfast buffet was ok. Dinner themed buffet was terrible. I paid. 30$ a person for what seemed like boxed and canned meals. Nothing was made from scratch. Nice location value for room and location. But food and beverage way too high.

Amazing Resort. 4 bedroom villa too pricey. Breakfast was amazing. Buffet dinner was amazing. Service at a l carte dinner way too slow. Place should allow refund policy. We booked extra room that we didn't need. Not a penny was refunded. Community around this resort is a rip off. Everywhere around it is expensive. Better to purchase gifts rrom the mainland.
