An eco sleep in the mountains of Koh Phangan with two pools and a private beach

The Lowdown

Set on 18 acres with a private beach, two pools and 19th-century King Rama V-inspired design, the 99-room Santhiya Koh Phangan Resort & Spa is a relaxed hideaway that caters to couples and families alike. With teakwood flooring, guestrooms have serious eco-friendly cred, and feature expansive windows and a balcony or terrace with uninterrupted sea views. Some suites and villas have private pools. Two restaurants, including the standout Chantara (serving authentic Thai al fresco) and the beachfront By The Sea bar offer plenty of choices at meal time. By day, a 13,000-square-foot freeform pool, 30-foot manmade waterfall and a selection of kayaks, canoes and watersports amenities will keep you active, while the open-air Ayurvana Spa will help you unwind.

In the Area

A 30-minute speedboat transfer from Koh Samui, Koh Phangan is an amalgam of Thai culture and natural attractions. Hit up Thong Nai Pan Beach, just a distance from the resort, for local craft and souvenir shopping, or take to the water by kayak or canoe for a self-guided tour of the area shoreline. Don’t forget to bring your snorkeling gear or trade it in with a local PADI dive outfitter and check out Ang Thong National Marine Park, Sail Rock or Chumphon Pinnacle, among the top-rated dive sites in Thailand.

Rare gem located in a paradise

Me and my other half stayed at this beautifully presented resort for 4 nights at a hide away pool villa during our trip from north to south of Thailand. We were picked up from Thong Sala pier by the hotel private car in the evening and in about 30 min drive we arrived at the breathtaking resort. We were left speechless by what we saw! Lobby area and everything else was so beautifully designed and decorated that we had the feeling like we found a real gem! The hotel staff from the reception area was extremely polite like we were very special guest for them and it has never changed until the last day of our stay! Swift check-in with cold towels infused by essential oils and nice cocktails just made it even better. Then we were transported by another car to our villa which was only round the corner from the lobby. We were left speechless once again. Everything was prepared for us with such an attention to details. Fresh fruit and ice bucket on a table, silk slippers and silk bath robes as well as everything else what we could ever ask for. We had a massive two wardrobes, king size honeymoon bed, separate sofa bed in a living room with slight door to our private good size pool with jacuzzi which we enjoyed most evenings after long days in a sun. Next day in the morning we went to the restaurant for a breakfast and we couldn’t stop admiring the views from the terrace. We were seated and served
by the staff like at some famous and posh restaurant. Then we were surprised by a huge selection of Thai menu which was changed daily and everything was super fresh and tasty (as my Thai girlfriend could imagine). We also enjoyed our iced coffees after the breakfast at the terrace overlooking beautiful sea view.
The resort has an amazing beach pool with one huge waterfall and some smaller once which look like designed by nature. We took huge number of pictures to save all beautiful moments in our memory.
Even after two weeks since we left the resort me and my girlfriend still talking about this beautiful place and its exceptional staff who made our holiday so perfect. We wished we stayed at this resort for longer than we planned but we will be coming back in a future. Big thank you to all Santhiya staff members and hope to see you soon again!
