A little bit of paradise.
We couldn’t be happier with this place. We loved the location. Everybody was helpful and friendly always with a smile. Our room was beautiful with a breathtaking view. Everything the room had was perfect. From the flip flops to the shampoo and the gorgeous beach bag they provide. I couldn’t believe I was there. It looked like a place taken out of a movie. I didn’t want to leave. Perfect place for honeymooners. We will definitively go back. 100 stars!!!! Thank you Santhiya, we will come back, we promise!

Very Good 8.0
Huge and quite some old hotel. Families oriented. Bar drinks very average, same with food. Gorgeous views though and super cute rooms all wooden in local design. Good spa :)

Poor 2.0
Not what you think it’s gonna be!
No food after 10 while they claim there is a night menu. When I called to complain I was told it’s a muslim Island!!!! Since when food is not allowed after 10 in Islam? I’m a muslim myself and I had never heard such nonsense in my life. I was hungry that I asked for eggs. what do you think they told me? Sorry no chef at the moment. Only microwave food. We can give you mac and cheese! No hot dog? No sorry. But that can also be made in microwave. Anyway the manager finally woke up and said he was sorry and that he would send Food for the four of us! guess what 3 plates of spaghetti with some weird white sauce arrived and hour later for 4 people. 94 Baht for a bottle of water after tax is just insane. After an hour and 3 phone calls we finally received a match box we’d requested. Awful service. The pools are small in comparison with other Lux resorts. You have much better food options outside Santhiya. There is a place called MAMA the food is tasty with a reasonable portion and price if you’re interested in Thai and seafood. The only nice thing was the decoration of the pool villa and the private pool.

Dream getaway
What a true PARADISE! This place was amazing. The traditional Thai style truly set the mood; even though you are away from mainland Phuket, you still feel like you’re in amazing Thailand. The staff were super friendly and helpful. They don’t bother or pressure you at all to order or spend, but there’s plenty of them readily available if you need help if anything. The restaurants really rolled out the red carpet every evening with different themes and menus. The entire resort was well kept. The Muay Thai lessons were an added bonus. The entire resort felt entirely peaceful and serene. Never once did we feel stressed about crowds, lines or rowdy guests. It was the ultimate getaway to end our weeklong trip hopping around Thailand. I’m already dreaming of going back someday.

Great Place to Stay!
The food at the resort was surprisingly really good. There was also nice drink specials. The room was amazing. Everything that we hoped for. The staff was all so lovely and helpful. We also would highly recommend doing the excursions right from the resort. They were great Asman was one of the guides and he made our day out on our trips!
