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.

nice stay
Reviewed 4 days ago

Beautiful beach/ ocean view villa. Outdoor bathroom was huge, fun during the day but a little different at night when you are beside the jungle. Staff went above and beyond. Our biggest complaint was only the prices of drinks and food at the hotel. It's a little walk to the town, but people would be more willing to stay if the prices at hotel the beach bar were more reasonable.

I know what I'm talking about

This place rocks. Pay for the transfer using their van(s) and boat. It is a blast. We stayed in a ocean view villa with our own private saltwater pool. Push your budget to book a room like this. It is so worth it! Included breakfast buffet was astounding. I'm not a breakfast buffet guy at all, but this was freaken' sweet. They had such a wonderful diversity of fresh, flavorful food. We would feast after our workout and fill our bellies at around 10:00. They close the buffet at 10:30. They have a gym and it is a trip. Loved it. Not all the newest equipment, but a fantastic place to workout with a freaken' waterfall coming down outside of its windows. We went to the village (7 min fun walk along the coast) for most dinners. Money went farther there and the food was far better. Sorry, Santhiya, but true. The staff was incredible. Everyone was so kind. Perhaps it is an amalgamation of Thai culture and their training, but the amazing staff made our time there seem magical. They offer free activities. We did the Thai boxing. OMG. It was awesome! Worked up a sweat and learned some new things. Not cheesy at all. The instructor is the real deal. We stayed in 13##. It was a villa. With a view of the Gulf of Thailand. And a private saltwater swimming pool. And TOTAL privacy. Writing this makes me miss it!! We checked out places nearby whilst there. Nothing comes close. Get a villa with a pool!!!

NO,NO,NO just right the corner you will find much more.
