  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The view of this resort is surreal. Really relaxing environment, pampered from start to end. If you are looking for a quiet getaway from the stressful city life, then consider this resort. It's quite an experience

One concern was the persimmons that fell into our outside bathroom. We’d wake up to a shower floor full of overripe persimmons daily.

    The price was great and was a beautiful location. Cleanliness was lacking!! The staff was slow with service. They do not have enough chairs poolside or by the beach to accommodate even half the guest. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone I know!

    • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

    In short - DON'T GO THERE!!!! I never wrote a bad review for a hotel but this time I had no choice. Staff was rude and unhelpful throughout the entire visit. First night our A/C didn't work and it took them a whole day until finally moving us to a different room, which was dirty and old. The second day, the house cleaning never showed up and the entire room was filled with ants. When we tried to complain to the manager we got no help as if they didn't even care. The room itself was smelly and seemed as if they haven't renovated in 10 years. Don't let the images fool you! Food is super expensive and tastes worse than the street food near it (if you do go, make sure to eat there instead). This experience has literally ruined our trip and we will NEVER return. Thank you Santhiya for the worst service, hotel and experience we've ever had in Thailand.
