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. Great ones are also the restaurants in the evening, of course, with the service and ... quality the price higher than outside the hotel, but not rude. read hotel review

    Very large pool in comparison to other hotels. Beach is very well maintained, as well as the pool chairs and hammocks between palms!

    To the airport about 20 minutes, but heard no airplane noise, since the flight paths do not have this hotel again. Who night life to experience would like, should in chaweng book. Taxi stand at the hotel, restaurants in walking distance.

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 already described, the breakfast is spectacular - in the evening we particularly enjoyed the fish and pasta buffet especially. Of course the prices are higher than in the town, but both the atmosphere, as well as the quality of the meals are incomparable.

    The friendliness of all coworkers in the hotel is spectacular. All wishes were literally taken from our lips before we could even say them. Our favorite was Apple - my two sons were deeply impressed by the incredibly loving, friendly nature that Apple has.

    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.

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. The excellent hotel management is under german management of the hoteldirektor mr Willy optekamp. The 'soul of the whole' Because the hotel a 'leading hotels of the world' are the expectations of course very high. At least move the rates for thai standards the high price segment. But, the guest but also a bit. Some ... guest were mostly with appropriate level, the unfortunately partly not available. Guests with ax shirt, or guests at the breakfast table with the material napkin the sweat from his face and neck mop?

    We had a orchid villa. This was very spacious and spacious and tastefully decorated in detail. Our mansion seemed clean and tidy, however on closer inspection very badly in need of renovation, since significant signs of usage, especially in the bathroom were visible. The nuances make the difference. Several times (2 times) was until late in the afternoon (17 hours) no room cleaning. All toiletries available.

    The breakfast buffet is manageable and looks at first glance very good. But no comparison to the big hotels in bangkok like for instance the shangri la hotel, peninsula or even mandarin oriental. But if you closer look at the food and fruit busy are some doubts. The presentation of the breakfast buffet seemed very unprofessional since all the fresh products with 'shabby mikrowellenabdeckhauben' covered. For a 5 star hotel a no-go. Here, the guest, and we are in a leadinghotel often he world, an attractive appearance. Bread selection is geared towards the russian guests, all soft and much white bread. Frühstücksköche are also the not air-conditioned restaurant for fresh egg foods available, but fresh eggs at an outside temperature of about 32 degrees not chilled kept. The floor before the smoothiestand was sticky and was not swept. There are the niceties a luxury and firstclass-hotel from santiburi distinguish. Moreover, the breakfast room not really thai, but more for a european company canteen. Also here again extended with infants already at breakfast nörgelten We both in the chamber thai restaurant, as also in the beach restaurant. Prices were very high, but perfect service, very good food, here a great note. Here we felt really good. Thank you very much again. Or simply for dinner out from the hotel, left side. Here are nice and reasonably priced thailokale available.

    Welcome was not really friendly, but seemed fake, or business. Cool drinks were expecting us and the receptionist waylaid the speedy evacuation of our beverages to us finally in our villa companioning to may. The customer service was done by two young ladies. These are mainly for guests from the german-speaking countries, as well as for the unfortunately many russian guests undelegated. In this period the russian families with small children strongly represented, yes one could say the hotel was from about 80% russians. The rest were austrian, german and swiss. The kindness of the german gästebetreuerin, mrs Larissa, s fake and not really welcoming. Here mark 5. the rest of the hotel staff is always very friendly and helpful.

    Nice, clean but rough sand beach with very good quality loungers and hammocks under palm trees, beautiful and the water is crystal clear. Very good service. However way too narrow provided, therefore no privacy, although the hotel more beach chairs than guests. Here you can of a crowded beach are talking about. Many russians and german families with small children with large noise level whereby a relaxation disturbed by it. Unfortunately the pool was from this urlaubergruppe not often used.

    About 20 minutes away from the airport. We had directly at the hotel for 14 nights, including a limo service to pick-up. The price for the shuttle is 3-fold higher than directly online with a local suppliers in the same amended. The pick-up was a bit questionable: here was our order not being implemented: we were greeted with a hotelmini -van pick up. Main thing but, we are good.

Until now our best vacation! %blank% the staff's hospitality, but also the entire population with almost any other holiday destination like Turkey, Egypt, Tunisia compared to. Here one (still) not the feeling for the money friendly to be treated. The hotel itself is located in a fantastic scale and well-kept tropical gardens with river and ponds (for this reason mosquito means do not forget!). We booked our room in a bungalow and were fully satisfied, and the room great facilities. The hotel manager (german) contacted daily all guests personally at the breakfast and changed a few words. He has the ... whole hotel with staff well in the grasp and is also sportily extremely active (daily squash and fitness, and with already retirement age) the sports offer is great and ranged from water sports on Tennis, golf, squash, gym to table tennis and thayboxen (all inclusive). Special thanks to our coach bird! So if someone bland, is their own fault. Also excursions could be directly over the hotel book, but any travel arrangements or on the streets in front of the hotel. The food in the hotel is excellent, but reasonably priced like in Europa, in the face of middle competition and the favourable prices very high. You can both along the beach, as well as on the streets in front of the hotel excellent restaurants with great and very cheap food. Similarly, the massage outside the hotel more favorable around some than in the hotel itself, but compared with Europa the rates a bargain are. Highly recommended is also an organised ', around koh samui came of better to meet, the boat trip to the nature reserve islands in the marine park with kayak tour was a great event. We are definitely coming again, the next time with the whole family ☺ read hotel review

Santiburi: for us one of the most beautiful hotels

After 6 years, we were for the 2. time in the santiburi and are lucky and recovers again to come home. The hotel is still a charming house, the not being wrongly the small leading hotels of the world is. The employees are without exception warm, courteous and tried to fulfill every wish. Unnecessary, all the positive reports to repeat. Our garden villa was located at the river, through the area winds and we could not have mosquitoes still odors complain. - this time, we had booked half-board, which we mostly at the beach restaurant rimtalay, some time but also ... in the chamber thai eaten. In rimtalay there were mostly starters and/or salad buffet and main courses, and desserts from the map. As half board guests we would have only to Hummer or import steaks have to pay an additional charge. Otherwise we had including sushi and lovely thai or seafood full. If you had special requests, not on the menu were (for example lab gai), were these always fulfilled, both in rimtalay, as well as in the hall thai. The one or the other over the beach and the rocky sea complained. True the sea is not crystal clear like for instance in Croatia, but it is clean and we enjoyed every day the lovely türkisschimmernde water for swimming, kayaking or windsurfing. And is also true: the sand is not white and fine sand, but light yellow and a bit coarse sand. And when it's 35-degree temperatures should quickly into the water or in the shade walk, otherwise you could the soles a little burn ☺ so what? That's just the way it is, if you are in the tropics holiday. The beach was always clean, it was enough chairs and sun screens available, and also one or another palme warms lush shade. We had a dream vacation in a dream hotel and this for relaxation searching couples and families, not for action and party, highly recommend it. Ps: for the, the sound of the air conditioning at night not your thing-take Oropax with.

Very small and beautiful hotel under good management. Everyone strives to please. The beach is palm covered, a dream. Towels brought immediately, also an extra to dry. There is always more beach chairs than guests!. Restaurant naturally rather expensive in the hotel, but the beach right down, there are some nice restaurants where you can eat inexpensively. In front of the hotel frequent ' buses' and a taxi stand was also there. One can problem-free all objects of interest on your own. Kids club was also great, but unfortunately there were almost no children since the there wanted. But the ... staff strive to kid. Afternoon coffee, tea, iced tea and cake were free and there you can meet to a small chat with the other guests. A modernisation of the hotels would be soon appropriate, it is however in any case, worn. All in all a super great holiday at 35 degrees. read hotel review

We were 14 years ago in the santiburi and in every respect absolutely loved it. That is why we are again old. The hotel and the installations were unchanged excellent. Nevertheless we are a bit disappointed, as the whole operation impersonal and more aimed at the masses appeared. The area in catastrophic nature changed. Earlier we were in the forested area (palm trees), now prevail outside underkept covered cuts and verlotterte streets before. The concept with the support of families, we think than questionable. We have our dream hotel again and this will be enough. read hotel review

Area, villa, beach and catering - all great!

    The chamber thai restaurant we didn't visit. We were only in the rim talay beach restaurant. We booked half board. It is a shame that this is not in buffet form takes place. There were changing something like thaibüfett and à la carte menu. In the à la carte menu is the ideal meal find, because the main course as central plates. Furthermore, there is the menu points where you pay more. We have luckily still questioned, but on our question why we do not at the start get said said the employees which one could have shortly before the order said. So i had to still the staff einlernen like one it is as enjoyable as possible for the guest makes. The thai staff is cool and not with warm hospitality. Often uninterested, whether the guest like. Such behaviour we have never our travel noted. The cocktails are not interesting and as a result we have never seen anything like it. Once we had a Piña Colada ordered. Had the half glass fully ice cubes and it tasted water. We had to then conversions, although the staff pejorative looked. The hotel has a strange system guests the not itself a restaurant capacity at rim talay or hall thai order before to reserve. There is a drive from the guests once there, you had to a popular spot on the shore line of the whole stay reserve. We have always said we spontaneously come on and see in the area few guests sit so that we have peace. But it had always from the hotel be reserved. Also with the idea if we not at all the restaurant visit the ', the whole evening free. Other couples who perhaps this space would be kept apart. The system was not in the head. It gave us the impression more of three stars and everything must on vacation organized are. If you are going on holiday you want but relax and everything without plan enjoy. The breakfast buffet was good and the offer varied.

    The german gästebetreuerin Larissa is somewhat übermotiviert and annoying. Could also the two employees liter and metric ton at the rim talay not with guests. The transfer to the airport is pure rip-off. The normal taxis do not work by taxi meters, although it everywhere tin. This demand higher prices as in Bangkok. It has no argument ' we are on an island'. With such a mass tourism and aircraft to every 30 minutes land one lives in the middle of civilization. We had to the made too expensive transfer because the taxis were also not so large and several bags can. English of the staff are really needs to be improved. After a long meeting with the manager and his staff had there in conclusion no interest and a special farewell. So one worries for the guests. Five star? We can't recommend this hotel!

    The beach is better than at the bo phut, however also not's special. The water is cloudy, the sand coarse, there are again and again traders the products to sell. Some stray wild dogs at the beach on the way. There was a bad impression regarding the situation at the beach subject. The hotel has more beach chairs as guests, but you always had to take the service spoke where is free. There were mostly german and swiss guests. This probably with the virtue all early to reserve. If i to the beach come and only ask where is free, then displays do perhaps, not and maybe dorthinten, then i feel like you are in a star hotel on Majorca, but not 5 star. Lots of guests reserve with bags, clothing or books. These, although some guests only 2-3 hours times in the shade beach chairs, but the whole day all was reserved leave. I don't know, whether the service too few salary has, but if these people always with hotel guests a trade and then still money tip get is the in my eyes no 5 star relaxation. Interesting to see is the wave of the guests if there was something free returns. The hotel offers in the afternoon coffee and cake at. One does not see then that about 16 hours the beach is empty, of course, everything was reserved and blocked. After 17 o'clock then all the guests again.

The room was always very clean (on the day determined 2-3 time check through to) and the facilities with additional inventory (bathroom with everything that you need, fresh fruit in the room, 2 water per room (living room, bedroom on a staircase and bathroom). Breakfast was very varied and delicious, with fresh crepes, waffles, eggs, and freshly squeezed juice cocktails to order. The management is german and is with ... the breakfast always present. While we were there, there were mostly young families in the hotel, due to the large area but it was still quiet. The highlight was for us the beach, dotted with palm trees. You have at any time of the day still 2 beach chairs, and with water, sunscreen, 1 time daily ice-cream and fruit spoiled. The loungers were very pleasant. The leisure offer is very various, and the free sailing, when warm temperatures was offered. In the hotel we have in the hall thai very good dining. The pool is our opinion not recommendable. The pizza did not taste good at all. Outside the hotel we mostly in San Remo lounge ii, a few blocks away in a quiet side street location, food. There, there are delicious thai food, italian food and for all the after some time what german also need sausage. Also for vegetarians the menu nothing to be desired. The salad is very delicious and the dishes were freshly prepared. The staff is very friendly and the boss, a german, loves his San Remo and personally for the guests.

    Rim talay beach restaurant - good location at the beach, we had the half board, buffet style with different topic days would be better, here there are alternating à la carte and thai buffet à la carte is difficult, one does not know so exactly what you get, also one is here on a portion of limited as you choose, with buffet much small sample, In addition to the à la carte it is not as nice it some products is the separate pay, luckily we had asked, whether we Hummer can be ordered, there was no pre-information and an employee said it would be said if you order the make. Very strange way of thinking. I told her that you all this advance notification must. Cocktails are not interesting, special mixtures. With a Piña Colada we had to switch the too much ice in it was, one was only water. The staff is also here a not interested impression and cool. More than a smiling welcome, most employees do not. It is also in some respects, too spicy. You know the one tourists and is not a. I spoke with the manager and said that there are enough problems in the world and lots of people be reduced to starvation. If i then my portion with more than 50% must return only, because it is too spicy is really a shame. Roßer drawback: You for guests a capacity in the restaurant. You want to not everything organized if you on vacation is, but here you have the stress you personally however not at all ordered. You will have to sit in the middle of pulg where everyone is sitting. If one would like to sit you have the discussions. Even if you a restaurant reserved and the guest in another restaurant, the space kept even if perhaps another few come and want to get. Thus would the table whole evening be empty. Very strange!

    The beach has more pool chairs as guests but nevertheless you feel here, as on a crowded beach. There are constantly thai's a products want to turn. There are wild dogs at the beach back and forth. The huge minus was in the hotel the the employees the loungers for guests or guests with books and bags early everything block. We like at the beach from Majorca felt like one it in the star hotel makes. Guests reserve it, but only 2-3 hours on the day at the beach. Interesting is also the the free coffee and tea all the lobby is. The beach is before 16 o'clock as empty, of course all beach chairs were reserved, and from 17 o'clock fully. A strange virtue of us german. Sometimes difficult for me to look at since i also german. Then you must in the morning the strandangestellten issues which are still available, because this together with the other hotel guests and then money tip if you the loungers block. One has sometimes the impression the service too few salary has. Absolutely a star hotel not worthy!

The service is fantatstisch, the food tastes already for breakfast; the offered food is extremely rich and of a very high quality. Only fly in the ointment: the bed in our room.

Santiburi resort is the best choice on koh samui! The hotel is very lovingly decorated. The hotel is charming in a forest of coconut palms and flowers surrounded, privacy is guaranteed! We were 2 days in the main building and 10 days in a beach villa. Both is very nice furnished. But the beachvilla is fantastic, with a small hot tub and sea view. Fantastic. The guests are mostly germans and swiss. The manager (mr optekamp ) came every morning for breakfast and every individual guest attentive care, the wishes, almost from our eyes.

The guests are mostly germans and swiss. The manager (mr optekamp ) came every morning for breakfast and every individual guest attentive care, the wishes, almost from our eyes. The guest relation ladies Tanja and larisa stood for the german guests very helpfully to the side. You can to the beach %blank% no matter what time, there were always beach chairs available. There is more than enough beach chairs, reservers are in the wrong place.

    Mänam is one of the quieter places in koh samui, to the airport the travel time amounts to about 20 minutes. If you the hotel walked out, is to directly a tailor. The road to the left next, there are some grocery stores and restaurants.

We were now already for the 2. time in fogle with our young daughter in this resort. Lots of guests the we met and koh samui and other resorts know love coming to the santiburi back. This house has a very good atmosphere, a soul, lived by many very nice, helpful and friendly thais everything to do around the guests the stay to be a joy to! You feel from the start very probably. The hotel is actually already 20-years-old but always very neat and it therefore seemed dated. Despite be 2013 all rooms inside newly decorated. The garden is ... wonderful, spacious and fantastic plants. The beach offers a unique natural shade and you is in the hammock and relax to the fullest. The service at the beach is perfect and the employee, the guests constantly with water, fruits, ice cream or sun cream! For a beach vacation there is nothing better! We will be back! read hotel review
