Overview

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.

We were there for 3 nights. this place is amazing - the room was the most convinient ever (including a small pool and hot tub, both with ocean-view). the breakfast was great and the staff members were super friendly and helpfull with everything we needed. the hotels beach is not great for swimming, but you can walk 4 min. to a nearby beach which is great. HIGHLY RECCOMMENDED! one of our best hotel-experinces ever

Very Nice Resort

We have just returned from our second amazing visit to Santhiya Koh Phangan.
 
We first visited Santhiya 6 years ago with our then-3 year old daughter (see previous review), we have been dreaming of returning ever since. We returned this time as a family of 4; our 4 year old son, 9 year old daughter, my husband and myself. We generally don’t like to go back to the same place twice in fear of being disappointed – “what if it’s not as good as last time?”. No fear here, everything was absolutely perfect, in fact I’d go as far as saying we had an even better time this time!!!
 
The speedboat journey from Koh Samui was perfect and I have to say seeing the resort for the first time in so many years was so exciting, it was truly amazing to be back!!

When we entered our beautiful Hideaway Villa, we were thrilled to see the warm “Welcome Home” message laid out for us, it was such a lovely touch.
 
The Hideaway Villa was perfect for our 12 night stay; the kids shared the mini bedroom and loved the pool and outdoor bathroom. The villa is so beautiful inside and out.
 
The resort is absolutely immaculate, stunning, and the staff are amazing.

The kids activities were fantastic, our kids especially loved the Muay Thai kids class – special mention goes to Gus - he is so incredible with kids, our kids loved him… especially my son!!  Thank you Gus!! Our son is still practising the moves you taught him!!
 
We all loved the Ayurvana Spa - Mint, Nisa and the team are all so lovely and run a truly beautiful Spa. My daughter and I loved the mother & daughter massage and my son and husband loved the father & son massage. My hot stone massage was also amazing, thank you!
 
Breakfast was a treat each morning. Grace greeted us with a lovely smile each morning and made sure we were well looked after. The breakfast offerings were brilliant and the egg station amazing.
 
A big thank you to Thirawan, who we remembered from our first visit, such a lovely lady and always so welcoming to us and our children. Thank you for everything Thirawan!
 
I could go on and on about how amazing Santhiya is, but you really need to go see it for yourself. It truly is a very special place; a slice of paradise, perfect for everyone, families, honeymooners, couples.
 
Thank you Santhiya, we all absolutely loved our stay and we can’t wait to return again for our 3rd visit!!
