Each year we ummed on the new, whether we santiburi should visit. This year we have done and unfortunately, we were not entirely convinced. In advance : the hotel is a wonderful area with duplex suites and separate villas. Top well-kept tropical garden area. A dream.

We have a suitable hotel in koh samui and had us for the santiburi decided, after much good had read, it 5 stars and the hotel also the group of 'leading hotels of the world' is. We had a garden villa with plungepool booked. Luckily we had a garden villa and orchid villa on the river through the hotel goes.

A true member of the LEADING HOTELS OF THE WORLD!!! Starting with the pick up from the airport, the really unbelievable friendliness and helpfulness of the staff, the cleanliness and quietness of the whole hotel terrain, the "postcard view" of the gardens and the beach, the most appreciated complimentary upgrade to a private-pool-villa and last but not least the very professional spa - we enjoyed every second we stayed there! Whoever is looking for an exclusive and relaxed at the same time to go will find a perfect place in this hotel. read hotel review

    Friendliness cannot be better, anybody from front desk to beach boys are only there to let you feel better - anytime! In addition to the front desk Chris (from Bavaria/Germany, in her role as guest relations manager for the German speaking guests) was taking care on us in her very charming way. Rooms, garden and private pool was perfectly clean every day! We had no complaints but every issue we brought up was taken care immediately and to 100% satisfaction!

  • Gastronomy
    5.0

    Only the gastronomic offering did not shoot up to the sky - although everything we had from the restaurant was absolutely well prepared and of good quality. It is just that we came to Koh Samui after we spent 3 weeks in Bali and visited signature restaurants there almost daily and a hotel restaurant will always have difficulties to match up with. Prices were all right, only the wine list needs some significant improvement!

  • Location
    6.0

    Directly at the beach - location couldn't be better! For those who do not decide to dine in the hotel restaurants (which we partically decided to do) transport to restaurants is about 15 - 20 minutes. We recomend to order the hotel cars for comfort reasons!

To the santiburi is only praise a. We were only in the main building in a room, then in a villa. The resort is very well maintained, the staff worries agitating to fulfill all wishes. At this point read reviews, that the river sometimes smell or that the breakfast with shabby mikrowellenabdeckhauben is protected, cannot not reconstruct we. Yes parts of the breakfast are covered, but also was better, as it exposed to leave. Breakfast offers a lot of variety, various (eggs) food freshly prepared.

We were after a round trip for a week at the hotel to relax and were impressed with the whole area, especially with the service and the friendliness of all the staff. The friendliness was genuine, despite some difficulty with the language. The pool chairs and hammocks on the hotel beach were always laid early with towels. prepared and drinks, ice-cream and cold towels were always available. In the afternoon there was coffee and cakes and ice cream. All included in the price without half board! We felt like we were in paradise, only the blond angels were missing! Anyone ... who still has something to complain about should stay at home. Waltraud & Rolf read hotel review

The houses have a bit more rustic decor but very well kept and very clean. The staff are self-sacrificing. The area is rather quiet, right in front of the hotel is a taxi rank so it was easy to get to all places of interest. A house on the beach is not necessary. A villa in the 2nd row is better. That way you have a bit more privacy. read hotel review

The Santiburi Resort deserves its stars! Excellent, relaxing holiday. The friendliness, cleanliness and service exceeds all of our hotel experiences, especially compared to Europe. This is the standard that you like to dream of in vacation. Those who are looking for a party in the hotel are wrong here and should book their stay, for example, in Chaweng. For families with children, it would be particularly too boring for the children. The entire complex is a dream. The beach is best suited for swimming, however, snorkeling does not make much sense, because the water is too murky from the sand. ... The food is very good on a high level, correspondingly expensive. The street in front of the hotel is real Thai, you can find typical Thai restaurants here after searching. (Left of the hotel walk about 300 meters, restaurant with pebble floor and classic bamboo furniture, very good and cheap, definitely try it!) Tuk Tuks are here that can be stopped from the street. For 100 baht to Chaweng (1 person), hotel tax was expensive, 500 for 2 people. Conclusion: simply fantastic, will come back next year! P.S. The staff, particularly the maids, beach employees, etc. were extremely happy if they got a tip for their service. read hotel review

Individual villas are distributed throughout a paradise-like garden. The park is so spread out that you enjoy absolute privacy in the villa. Twice daily the villa was cleaned and made 'sleep ready' in the evenings. There are even fresh flowers and a wise saying by the bed daily. In the morning we enjoyed a wonderful breakfast. The day began with a smile when Apple greeted us. The selection and the quality of the breakfast in the Santiburi were excellent. No matter whether you chose the Thai soup or the German breakfast - everything was excellent. We especially enjoyed the freshly ... squeezed juices. You couldn't imagine it: choose a pineapple, mango or a melon and everything is freshly prepared in the juicer. One evening we enjoyed the fish and pasta buffet at the Santiburi. This was definitely the best dinner this stay - excellent! read hotel review

    We had a wonderful garden villa. Everything is very clean and in Thai style decor. The bathroom is huge, though we didn't need the large bathtub.

    As we were traveling with two large sons we could make the most of the sports activities. Windsurfing, canoeing, catamaran, squash and tennis were always available. All sporting activities are included and could be used at any time. And the beach: like paradise! For the four of us there were four chairs in the shade every day, two in the sun and a hammock! The beach boys would recognize from afar who we were and how many we needed. Towels were immediately brought and the loungers prepared. Bottled water was available throughout the day, at noon there was an ice cream snack and fresh fruit, and in the afternoon there were cold towels. You feel like you're in heaven!

    We chose to get the hotel shuttle service from Koh Samui airport and experienced the uplifting feeling of being personally welcomed (the airport alone there is worth seeing). After a short journey to the hotel we were warmly welcomed, and everything was arranged easily over a coconut juice drink. We were then shown the resort and all the details in the room were explained to us. Water and fresh fruit were available daily, there was always something different and exotic. Right in front of the hotel there is a taxi rank. It is cheaper to choose the pickup taxi. So you can get good in the nearest towns. There is a market on Thursdays in Maenam, and Fridays in Fisherman Village. Not to be missed - the cooking stands are particularly worth it. Shopping is better in Bangkok, though.
