It was the perfect holiday! The sea view was amazing, and it totally took our breath away. We stayed there for 3 nights, and on our second day we went on Phiphi island trip by the private speed boat. It was relaxing, safe, and words could not describe how great the whole experience was.
The only negative experience we had encountered was that on our last day, when we were checking out, we were charged $800 baht for taking a bottle of liquor from our room. We explained that we didn't touch anything from the food bar except drinking the complementary water.
Although the manager attended to us politely and had immediately taken off the $800 baht out of the bill,(he said he would check with the house keeping team....) but we were scratching our heads for the rest of the day, whether someone came into the room to take it or not... I would probably advise to lock your luggage before you leave, or to put the room on "do not disturb" if you don't lock your valuables away. $800 baht is fine to pay, but the fact is we didn't take the bottle, so what happened to it?
Despite the above, we will definitely return to Santhiya! Now that i am back to work, everyday, I am almost still dreaming myself being in Santhiya, and my goodness, the spa, is a must have!
