We stayed at the Santiburi for 7 nights in september. The resort is located 20 mins from the Airport. On arrival to the airport we had booked a car from the Hotel which was on time and cost around £60 return trip. Staff member who greeted us was very pleasant and helpful.
This next point has been mentioned by other travellers but important to emphasise again. On checkin you will be tempted by what sounds to be a great offer for a private villa, but is not all it seems. The villas are very well appointed but we feel offer very little privacy whereas the standard Duplex suite is lovely (as long as you have quiet neighbours) and the bedroom is 2 stories from ground level..
Food is gorgeous in the resort but expensive by Thai prices however quality and cleanliness second to none.
Spa treatments fantastic but expensive!
Beach and pool are beautiful, and you get complementary bottles of water all day and lovely treats such as ice-cream and fruit. There is a steady stream of hawkers throughout the day but will not pester you. Watersports are ok however at present the resort has no dive school (plenty in Bo phut, 10 min drive away).
Staff for the most part are very friendly and helpful.
Very relaxing and quiet resort if that is what you are looking for! Very efficiently run..
