...is exactly the first thing I said to my spouse every morning.

We stayed in the Malee during our honeymoon and had an incredbily relaxing time. By far, Sandalwood's location gives it the best view of Samui. We had all intentions of exploring the island's beaches but, after a few jaunts out, found that there was no better place than our porch or the inifinity pool. The staff made everything so easy--attentive and helpful, so kind, never obtrusive with service. The room was perfection, the dinner was delicious, and we cannot wait to return.

The value for the boutique surroundings could not be surpassed. Thank you, Sandalwood!

Words cant describe how magnificent this place is...right from the time to step into the place till you leave. Someone even greeted us at the airport - best to book rooms direct with Sandalwood for this to be included. You are greeted with utmost respect and dignity and treated like a king/queen. I travelled there with my newly wed wife and had a fabulous time.

Simple things matter. When you pop out for dinner for example, someone comes to draw all the curtains and shades and makes your bed up and places a goodnight chocolate on the bed. When out go for dinner, they know which room you stay in and don't ask you for room number etc as the service is personalised. The table decor in the restaurant is also varied on a daily basis so you don't get bored. Simple but subtle things make all the difference.

The rooms are so big, beds luxurious and comfortable especially after such a hectic wedding and reception ceremony. We slept for nearly 12 hours when we got there as we were exhausted. Good air con, marble bathroom, fantastic view of the ocean.

Fantastic infinity pool, close by private beach with someone to take you there. Free shuttle to Chaweng/Lamai at 11am and back at 5pm. Alternative taxi can be booked for a small fee.

Great stay, would stay there again anytime.

Thank you Pon, Robert and the Sandalwood team.

WAI Mr. David (one of the owners) this was long overdue...

We never had such a hospitable/memorable traveling experience ever... Sandalwood made our special occasion much more special... We stayed 3 days at Plumeria & 2 Days at Malee Villa and my god the view from Villa was mesmerizing, the staff amazing, service immaculate, support unfounded anywhere else in the world

The Villas much much more than they look on pictures with all amenities one can ask for, loved the little surprises (msgs, chocolates etc.) we used to find on the bed when we used to come back at night, staff that was always there listening & smiling especially Ms. JOY who was a real JOY to hang around with... Wish we had the luxury to spend more days at this serene place...

All in all, it was 5 Shinning Star experience for this sanctuary in the hills

I have just left Sandalwood Samui to head up to Chiang Mai today, & I miss it already. With my sister and my friend, we stayed in the magnificient Leelawadee (did I spell this one right Pon???) and I could never imagine that a place could be so wonderful. From the greeting on arrival from Pon, to the lovely farewell this morning at 8am at the restaurant (staff even coming in early so we could have our breakfast prior to leaving),nothing was too much trouble.

To Pon, Koy, Sea, Tiang, Rat, Mai, Tho, Nuek, Pui and the ever smiling Yod, you are such lovely people, who genuinely care for the well-being of your guests. The 'surprise' party for my birthday, including presents, on Monday was amazing & it will always have a special place in my heart - thanks Koy for staying way past your finish time to join in to sing 'happy birthday.

It was more than perfect being away from Lamai & Chaweng but for a quick 10 minute drive, either by the complimentary shuttle or availing on the Sandalwood Samui Taxi, it was never a problem not being "right in town - it was so much better. Coral Cove at the bottom on the hill was a perfect place for a sea swim at any time as well. The infinity pools, the jacuzzi we had with our villa, the Spa treatments, not forgetting the most wonderful, variety of menu for meals & including when he felt like turning up, pats, purrs and tummy rubs for "Pumpkin' & his girlfriend "Potato" I would never ever stay anywhere other than Sandalwood Samui - this little gem of a place deserves the number one spot................so do yourself a favour, I dont believe you will be disappointed.
