We chose to have a weeks break and visit Phuket 1st and then spend a couple of nights relaxing in this resort before returning home to Hong Kong.
I am glad we did it this way round as the Santhiya is the perfect place for relaxing, enjoying the surroundings and being pampered by the staff and facilities.
We opted to get ourselves to the resort by way of taxi from Patong to Bang rong pier, then speedboat to Koh Yao Yai and local taxi to the hotel which works out rather cheaper than if they organised it.
But right from the arrival, we felt relaxed and looked after, the staff explained everything to us and the guide around our Ocean View Pool Villa was excellent and they even supplied a complimentary bottle of wine for us which along with the other touches was greatly received.
The Villa is amazing and huge as it is double the size of our Hong Kong apartment so a real treat for us.
The food at the restaurant both for breakfast (part of room package) lunch and dinner were a very reasonable price and absolutely amazing taste and quality made it all the more perfect.
I think that they should organise the transfers as part of the deal rather than charging a high price to do it, I believe the wifi should be improved and possibly increase the amount of water-sports and day-time activities but these are minor points in an altogether wonderful experience and we left (not wanting to) with certainty of returning.
