Our stay at the Santiburi Resort felt like staying in Paradise! This resort with its unique setting in the tropical garden with hundreds of wild-grown coconut trees is dream of Asian Atmosphere come true.I have been to several Deluxe Resorts all over the world but this resort was by far the most stunning and  best managed hotel. The private beach and the Mae Nam Bay are as fabulous as the large Pool and the private villas. Here – all you needs are taken care of without saying!If any guest finds something to complain at all – then he should rather stay at the King’s Palace next time – as you can’t find a better place! The location of the resort used to be a coconut plantation before the Santiburi Resort was built – at a total cost of “ Mio US Dollar  for the gardening alone! At this resort you can experience heaven on earth – without exaggeration!


Hotel: Very welcoming and friendly that made us feel part of their family.
Location: Uniquely located both on a gorgeous beach and amidst beautiful gardens.
Service: Superb. All staff were incredibly friendly and helpful and consistently went above their call of duty to ensure all our needs were met.
Gastronomy: Delicious, delicious, delicious. Great range of choice to either have dinner on the beach, by the pool or in the restaurant, and variety of types of food.
Sport & Entertainment: Fabulous choice of activities so there is always much to do. Beach or pool swimming. Tennis or snooker. Spa treatments on the beach or reading in the library. Great quality beach furniture and particularly the fabulous hammocks right on the beach under the coconut trees.
Room: Beautiful villa within a few steps of the sand. Loved it so much and it was kept so clean and inviting with our own private courtyard and plunge pool.
Tips and recommendations: Highly recommend this resort and its exceptional staff - from the great General Manager to the wonderful Reiki instructor to all the beautiful Thai staff at all levels. Terrific wi-fi access throughout the resort so we could skype to America from the beach. Santiburi is a very special place with an incredible welcome and they made our honeymoon the most memorable and enjoyable trip of our lives. Thank you, Santiburi, we will see you again!
