We visited Santiburi in September 2017 and we had the Grand Deluxe Villa just a few steps from the beach. As an active and adventurous couple we hardly ever go for the higher end accommodation, but this time we wanted to have an easy and relaxing stay in a nice setting. Santiburi was just perfect for this and by far the best hotel/resort we've ever been in.
The staff is amazing - friendly, attentive and very professional. The villa was very spacious, well-equipped, spotless, and cleaned twice a day. The beach - as perfect and well maintained as the rest of the hotel area. The pool - easily long enough for good lap swimming. The breakfast was just perfect and well organized. At the resort's sports complex the gym was spacious, threadmills and ellipticals were excellent and fairly new, but the other fitness equipment could use an update (lacking some kettlebells, resistance bands, etc). It's really hard to find anything else to complaint about or make better than it already is.
If you're out exploring the island all day and night, there's really no point in staying in an expensive resort, but if a complete relaxation in a perfect setting is what you're after, this is the place. The hotel area is just so calm and nice that we ended up spending most of our time there relaxing at the beach or the pool and not really wanting anything else.More
