Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Hotel's Favourite
Excelent family hotel. Villa was big with pool and on the beach, the ocean was nice, no currents arround the island so the kids were able to swim and snorkel without stress for me. We had watersports and differenct activities and trips that kids loved. Food was very good and I really reccomend this hotel.

We loved our stay here. The highlights were the charming and large Thai-style Villa rooms, the hotel is about 20 yrs old and holds up well. The huge swimming pool caters well to everyone from families to couples and the fabulous activities delight all ages. Between us, we participated in yoga, tennis, beach fishing, local market tour, morning almsgiving service, and sailing. The hotel is close to the airport and an easy drive to Fisherman's village which is a great evening activity and dinner option. Breakfast was excellent, the highlight of dinner was probably the toes-in-the-sand dining rather than the food itself. Sundowners and the happy hour deal will convince you to enjoy at least one night in. The staff were fabulous & helpful not that we needed much this hotel is well one and staff and guests are all chill! Thank you once again, we will remember our stay and hope to return one dayWe had the good fortune of winning a stay as a lucky door prize at a local community event - thank you Santiburi for your local Thailand support.

Santiburi is very peaceful and relaxing. The staff are very good - specifically Mea (the beach assistant) and the waiting staff - and the resort felt very safe. However, the food was only nice (significantly more expensive than other restaurants just outside the resort and less flavoursome) and the atmosphere in the restaurants was lacking (note that this could be improved by live music at nights or even just music at the beach bar). This lack of atmosphere is at contrast with the incredible view at the beach bar. Overall, this resort is more tailored to older couples an/or families and I would not recommend to younger (more hip) couples.

Dear Guest, Thank you very much for your review and kind mention about the staff, especiallly Khun Mea. We will certainly share the review with him. We have taken note of your comments and are working on diversifying the food & beverage offer, and will have themed nights with life entertainment again during the high season.

I stayed at this resort only for a night from 30 Sep to 1 Oct 2022 with my wife and two sons. We had booked a two bedroom suite. It actually turned out to be two interconnected rooms - one was a regular room and the other had a living room and bathroom on the ground floor and a bedroom on the upper floor. Overall, it did give the feeling of a two bedroom suite. The only issue was that the upper floor did not have a bathroom so coming down to use it was a problem at night. Otherwise it was a very nice, spacious, clean and comfortable. Well, the beds were a tag hard! Vegetarian options in breakfast were limited as they were in the restaurant. However, we did manage to find enough for us to survive for a day. The staff were very polite and provided excellent service. They have an ice-cream cart which serves free ice-cream at 3 pm everyday on the beach and a high tea at 4 pm at the beach side restaurant. The pool was excellent and so was the beach. Fine sand and calm waters. Overall a good stay and I would absolutely recommend people to stay there. I would love to stay there again.

We have been relocated from SAii Resort to this hotel, it’s an amazing place to stay with the most amazing people, however the hotel we have been relocated from is the most beautiful small cute hotel I’ve ever been too, the problem there was that rude people were staying there on the same time and we found that very upsetting, there was glass broken by the pool like there were doing it perpusly to annoy the staff, we were getting upset about that , because staff in this hotel, Tak the manager, Peak in the reception and new training staff member Gus, all lovely, unfortunately there is not enough staff to be dealing with horrible customers like those people. We would like to make a little suggestion to the owner off SAii and Santiburi hotel to give SAii resort more money to improve the little things which got tired over Covid , because Tak is so proud to look after that place so lovely and she need more support. Thank you very much, to Tak and the Apple , you are such a amazing people, looking forward to to see you next time. Both hotel are 100% beautiful!!! Justyna , Craig and Tommy

Wonderful resort, high luxury but very relaxed. One of the best hotel breakfasts I’ve ever had. Excellent rooms, great service, beautiful grounds. The pool is massive and was never busy. Dinner in their beach restaurant was a stunning location. Every care taken to make sure you enjoy your stay. We stayed three nights at the end of a holiday touring Thailand and it was the perfect place to relax. Amazing spa also on site.

We stayed for 7 days in July. We had a two bed duplex apartment in the main building. There was plenty space and the kids liked that they had an interconnected room. It was good to still have a living space. The room was spotlessly clean and very authentically decorated. Not dated! Just very in keeping with the hotel. We loved the style and liked that it was Thai inspired. We were very near the pool, reception and breakfast area. The beach is only a 3 min walk away too. The kids loved the pool. We had it almost to ourselves most days. We loved that the towels and water was given out at the beach and poolside so there were always fresh towels and cold water. The staff throughout the resort were all fabulous. Extremely friendly and happy. They made us feel very welcome and always made the kids smile and laugh. My kids enjoyed the daily football, sailing, paddle boarding and Thai boxing. My youngest used the kids club. She is 9. We left the kids at kids club and played golf one afternoon. It was great as the older two (aged 12) could go to the pool and knew the kids club was there for them too. The food was very very tasty at breakfast. A huge selection. We all loved our morning smoothie! The Beach House had themed buffet nights where we sat at a table with our feet in the sand. We only wish the hotel had more of an atmosphere at night. Maybe some music or live shows. Everyone seemed to eat then go back to their own villas. We could have sat out and chatted to people and the kids might have made friends if there was more entertainment. We took taxis 3/4 times along to Fisherman’s Village for the markets and other restaurants. We also went Go Karting and visited the Big Bhuddha. We loved Santiburi. The Thai people made this a place we will love and most definitely hope to return to one day in the future. Thank you!!

Dear Jenny B, Thank you so much for taking the time to write this comprehensive review which I have just read loud to my colleagues earlier today. We are really happy to read to that you had an enjoyable family holiday with us at Santiburi Koh Samui and enjoyed the Duplex suites and their location above our Children's Camp and close to our swimming-pool. I am glad to read that you took advantage of the proposed activities as well. In regards to the entertainment we have introduced live music on rotation in the evening at the beach house since the beginning of August. So we appreciate the recommendation. It would also be a pleasure to welcoming you back to our Village of Peace and Tranquility. Sincerely, Alexandre Frenkel General Manager alexandre.f@santiburisamui.com
