The hotel is located at Manam Beach and due to the distance to the main road is a very quiet and peaceful place. Nevertheless getting to Chaweng or other more busy places is not a problem.
The hotel director and all his staff create a very familiar friendly athmosphere. We enjoyed the complete stay and would always recommed the hotel.
We had weekly golf turnaments organised by the hotel, which gives you a chance to meet other hotel guests and enjoy a spectacular golf course and all its challenges. Beside the tournament there's everyday the possibility to join multiple sports, cooking, and other activities for children and adults. Beside that you can spend as well the day at the spa or at the beach.
The beach is very nice, not busy and palm leaves are spending the shadow making it a beautiful place, since there's no need for umbrellas. At the same time you could lie on the beach enjoying the sun.
All prices, whether restaurant, golf, spa, are very reasonable. Hotel director and staff are very friendly and helpful.

We have recently returned from a heavenly 11 night stay at The Santiburi Resort.Our party of four arrived in the evening , and our welcome was warm , friendly and relaxed...this vibe continued throughout our stay.
The GM ,Willy proved to be a most gracious host,who made sure that we were well looked after- he was assissted by his wonderful team of people, namely the charming Pimpa in guest relations who with her lovely manner proved to be indispensible, Tawat,with his great sense of humour,the fantastic chef Nui,who prepared special thai meals for us - they were sublime ! Nor can we forget the lovely Apple, Phan and Luck....who really made our stay memorable with their warmth and humour.
The Resort is beautiful,the beach calm and relaxing,the pool stunning and the gardens lovely.We stayed in a garden villa,which was wonderfully placed between the gardens and the beach.We have stayed in many 5 *hotels and this is one of the rare times that we have had nothing to complain about.
We have been to Samui before,and stayed at different resorts,but Santiburi stands out , and although I use tripadvisor alot, I never felt the need to join and write a review....but here it is!

We were very disappointed with this hotel. To begin, with if you are traveling with small children ( 2 to 10) there is danger everywhere! The balconies in the main lobby have very low rails and any child or young adult can easily fall into the 8 meter water feature below.
The rooms are unnecessarily multileveled which makes tripping and falling effortless especially if you wake up in the middle of the night to use the toilet. Wooden beds have very sharp corners and so does all the furniture inside the villas.
If you are on your honeymoon or just want some type of privacy there is NONE. Most villas are so close to each other that you must draw down all the blinds ( there are 10 of them) day and night so the staff and other guests don't get a full view of the inside of your room.
The breakfast buffet is substandard and their choice for authentic thai food is poor.
The staff is unmotivated and unenthusiastic, with some exceptions of course.
Otherwise the rooms were clean, the beach area was well taken care of and the pool area was well kept.

the best hotel for service, food and accommodation that i have every been in...if you go to kosamui you have to stay here...if you are looking for romance and the beautiful thailand and have a few days to travel...go to KOH TAO which is an hour boat journey and the little island in front of koh tao.

We spent in Santiburi the last week of August, after an exhausting China tour.
We had the the luck of being upgraded to a really superb Beach Pool Villa. (The private pool is really an oversized Jacuzzi).
Santiburi is a classy resort, where you can enjoy perfect relax. The beach never looks crowded and there's nothing better than lazying all day in a hammock under the shade of palm trees.
Of course you can play tennis or golf or work out in the gym, but you'd miss being pampered in the beach by the staff with fresh water, fruit and ice cream and sweets.

Water was warm but not crystal clear, no Maldives, but beach is nonetheless very good.
Breakfast is really amazing, the swimming pool huge, the gardens fantastic. Restaurants are expensive by Samui standards, but not in absolute terms, so we ended up having most of our dinners in the resort. You can find cheaper alternatives along the beach or in Fisherman's Village, not far away.

Weather was cloudy for three days, that's all went wrong.
