    Our opinion

    An island resort in Thailand that is both exciting and charming.

    Hotel description

    Santiburi Resort on Koh Samui is a year-round tropical paradise boasting a much sought-after setting directly on the white sands of Mae Nam Beach, nestled amidst 23 acres of exotic gardens blooming with fragrant flowers and shady palms. One of the few hotels in all of Asia and indeed the only resort on Koh Samui to be blessed with a 300-metre-long private section of idyllic beach, Santiburi provides an attractive setting for a stay on arguably Thailand’s most beautiful and popular island. A member of the Leading Hotels of the World group, the resort aims to preserve an authentic Thai authenticity, from the traditional dress of the staff and exceptional standards of service to the cuisine, room decoration and massage treatments. Consistent in style, size and decoration, Santiburi's 59 villas are located throughout the tropical gardens, each designed to resemble an authentic Thai house, with traditional architectural features and Siamese furnishings adding character. Ensuring a respectable distance between them to maximise privacy and tranquillity, the villas each feature a terrace overlooking the beach or garden, depending on its location. The Equatorial Duplex Suites meanwhile offer a downstairs living area with a master bedroom upstairs and are situated in the main building overlooking the swimming pool, one of the largest hotel pools in Asia. The relaxed atmosphere belies the Santiburi resort’s impressive range of sporting and leisure facilities, including sailing, tennis, a spa and golf at the 18-hole PGA Championship course situated just ten minutes from the hotel, accessible by the complimentary shuttle service. The private beach at Santiburi Resort benefits from a most welcome butler service, with a dedicated enclosed section for children, overseen by staff. The air-conditioned Sala Thai restaurant overlooks the palm-lined pool and tropical garden and serves beautifully presented traditional Thai cuisine, whilst cocktails and snacks are available throughout the day at the pool bar and beach restaurant, Rim Talay. The Santiburi resort also features themed dinners, from Thai buffets to Mediterranean cuisine and a daily high tea is served in the lobby. Children are well catered for at Santiburi, with a play area offering all manner of creative and sporting entertainment from table tennis and martial arts training to crafting lotus flowers and batik painting. The Santiburi Resort on Koh Samui is a refined and exclusive hideaway in a beautiful setting.
