This resort is absolutely AMAZING! My wife and I wanted a private and quiet venue for our honeymoon. Sandalwood Luxury Villas had awesome reviews so we figured we'd check it out for ourselves. How could we go wrong.. Private infinity pool, what appeared to be breathtaking views of the ocean and the shore. It was even more beautiful in person than we could have imagined! The staff here from the very beginning was extremely friendly and helpful. Very thoughtful, caring and service was prompt. Our villa was amazing! Super clean, very well laid out and surprisingly private. The food at the resort was oustanding! Convenient shuttle service was available to the major party and shopping areas, but the resort itself is tucked quietly away from all of the craziness. If we ever come back to Koh Samui, we would have to come back to the Sandalwood Villas. I'm pretty sure that staying anywhere else would fall short of the experience we've had here.

Thank you for taking the time to write such a wonderful review of your honeymoon experience at Sandalwood Luxury Villas. We are so pleased to hear you have so many positive comments about our villas, restaurant, service and staff.

It gives us great pleasure to know that you found something wonderful to say about so many different members of the Sandalwood staff; our front desk team, our drivers, our housekeepers and our restaurant team. We especially love to hear you describe the food at our Blue Ginger Restaurant as outstanding. We recently re-launched the entire restaurant; from the menu to the service and the training. Our star head chef has certainly improved the quality and consistency of our dining options and we are grateful for her contributions to the improvements at Sandalwood.

It’s great to know that you will choose Sandalwood again if you return to Koh Samui. We hope that will be sometime in the near future.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay in the Amarin Villa. That villa is extremely popular for couples or small families because of the villa layout and the incredible views of the gulf from the Jacuzzi and balcony.

Heaven on earth is such a lovely compliment and we so pleased to know that we were able to provide an experience that is difficult to find in the terrestrial world. We can’t wait to see you both back here again for another break from your hectic lives in Bangkok.

This was my second time staying at sandalwood and I will stay again. Great views and huge rooms in a small personalized villa hotel. Many rooms have private pools. They also provide u with a local cell phone to call their driver for pickup and drop off to island spots. The staff were great to offer us suggestions for dinner, drinks, clubs and day trips and even helped us coordinate ferry rides to other islands. Breakfast was included with a great selection- eggs Benedict's was so yummy. Good location only about 10 min to both chewang and lamai beaches; also two little coves right down the hill from the villa where u can borrow a kayak or have lunch.

It’s always a pleasure to know that we are able to meet and exceed the expectations of our repeat guests. To know that you will be back again for a third visit is just the kind of praise our team cannot get enough of hearing. Our staff loves to provide a personalized level of service to our guests. This includes listening to what you want your holiday to be and then offering suggestions to help you create that dream holiday. With over ten years on Koh Samui, our staff are trained to suggest the best in beaches to visit, day trips for tours of the area and the best restaurants the island has to offer. It’s great to know that you took advantage of Coral Cove Beach, just three minutes from the hotel with free anytime shuttle service. We provide beach bags and towels, snorkeling equipment and we can help get you set up with kayaks to explore the immediate area.

Thank you for writing this glowing review and we are already looking forward to welcoming you back to Sandalwood for your third visit.

Words cannot describe the Sandalwood Luxury Villas in Ko Samui, without doubt the best place I have stayed at around the world; not just Thailand!
The views are breathtaking, the wife and I on our honeymoon from Perth, Australia checked into the sandalwood villas on April 24th and our time here from then has been first class with the service 5 star. Everything about this place is incredible, from the moment we made the drive up the hill to the villas to the reception staff has been amazing. On arrival, everything we needed was at our beckon call. The staff provide a mobile phone for pick ups in and around Samui, anytime, anyplace, anywhere they will come and get you from around the island with a big smile and friendly nature. The breakfasts are top notch with choice of Western or Thai style and the staff are always willing to help out.
That brings us to the room-OMG! We stayed (still are) in the Malee villa and the views of Samui are breathtaking! Our own private jacuzzi and infinity pool over the cliff tops looking over the island- truly amazing. The rooms come complete with spacious living area, everything cleaned by the staff and also surprise gifts waiting for you on your arrival from a big day out.... From choccie bars to gifts and elephants made from the towels- so nice!
Why you might ask, am I writing a review before I have left this joint? Well if, I was a potential holiday maker wanting to know the best places to go to well I would want to know this kind of info because it is golden! No need to look elsewhere,this is the place you come to for everything- no questions asked. And, I haven't even begun to talk about how nice the owner Robert is...
All his advice whether it be on places to go, things to do, restaurants to eat at have been of the highest quality! Best steak in town, best massage, markets to go to, places to party, best Thai, best shops- Robert knows. And he doesn't mind letting you know the good and the bad, a great trait of a wonderful establishment! I'll be back to Finish my review when I leave this place but at the moment 11/10, A+ grade, 6 stars out of 5 are comments that spring to mind!
Thanks Sandalwood for the memories- but we are still making them for another few days- YAY! Love it love it Love it

Room Tip: Malee room - jacuzzi and private infinity pool!

It is difficult to describe the joy it brings our team at Sandalwood Luxury Villas to read such a positive and thorough review of your experience here. One of our specialities is catering to honeymooners and we’re so happy to know that we were able to provide a once-in-a-lifetime experience with memories for years to come.

Thank you so much for writing this review to the TripAdvisor audience to let them know that Sandalwood is THE place to stay on Koh Samui. We work hard every day to provide unique experiences tailored to each guest and it’s wonderful to know that you felt the service was personalized and excellent.

Our Malee Villa officially launched as one of our newest one bedroom pool villas and we are loving hearing the praise from our guests who are amongst the first to experience the upgrade by adding a private infinity pool (same goes for our Jumpee Villa).

It was my pleasure to provide suggestions to help you make the most out of your time on Koh Samui. After so many years living here, I love to share the best of the best with our guests to make sure their holiday (or honeymoon) provides and experience that goes well beyond the luxury accommodations on the property.

Thank you again for writing such a strong review of your time at Sandalwood. We hope you will make a return trip to Koh Samui, so we can celebrate your anniversaries with you in the years to come.

Thank you for writing such a positive review about your recent stay at Sandalwood Luxury Villas. Our unique hillside location provides views from every villa that are difficult to describe without actually experiencing it for yourself. However, spectacular, amazing and heaven are three words we love to hear.

Please come back and see us again!

We recently stayed at the Sandalwood for 3 nights and could not have been more impressed. The views were breathtaking (I may have overdone it with pictures of the infinity pool!) and the rooms themselves were beautifully done and spacious.

Upon arrival, the staff gave us a cell phone with the number of the manager on it that we could use if we needed a pick-up at any point during our stay. This really set the tone for the whole stay and epitomized just how welcoming and warm the staff were. They were so accommodating and helpful, and their pleasant demeanors really enhanced our stay. The hotel is up a hill about 5 minutes drive from Chaweng Beach district so it was very convenient for most things we wanted to do. We were sad to leave the Sandalwood and I would consider a trip back to Koh Samui just for the chance to stay here again! HIGHLY recommend the Sandalwood!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Plumeria and Jumpee rooms and both were stunning. I would imagine that all of the r...

The Sandalwood staff is simply perfect. A small doubt before booking for a hotel without direct access to the beach... but we immediately dicovered that this hotel has so many advantages that the tripadvisor rating is fully justified. And you don't need to forget the access to the beach, because the friendly chauffeur service will take you in front of your villa to ride you everywhere, even in hte night.

Perfect is a word we love to hear from our guests at Sandalwood. We have shared your glowing review with our entire team. We are so pleased that you took advantage of our anytime private driver service down to Coral Cove Beach, just a two minute drive down the hill from Sandalwood. Coral Cove Beach is a quiet, crescent shaped beach with one beach bar/restaurant and beautiful scenery. If our guests are looking for a livelier beach scene, we also provide free shuttle service to either Chaweng Beach or Lamai Beach twice daily.

Thank you for taking the time to recommend your stay at Sandalwood to other TripAdvisor users. We hope to welcome you back here someday for another simply perfect holiday.
