About The Hotel

Santiburi is located on Mae Nam beach on the northern coastline of Koh Samui, overlooking a secluded 300m stretch of fine white sand shaded by coconut groves. 23 hectares of tropical gardens surround garden and pool suites and villas and families are well looked-after with the complimentary use of water sports equipment, sailing, tennis, a games room, a petting zoo and supervised facilities just for kids.

One of the largest freeform swimming pools in Asia is the centrepiece of the resort, surrounded by sun loungers and with a separate shaded kids’ pool with plenty of toys and balls to play with. The sports centre has a gym with personal trainer, yoga, floodlit tennis court, Muay Thai, a football field and cycling. Complimentary water sports include kayaks, catamarans, windsurfing boards, Laser sailboats and Hobie cats and Beach Butlers provide beach towels, cold water and fruit and ice cream both by the pool and at the beach. The Santiburi by Bhawa spa has a Turkish massage table and shower therapy room, indoor baths, outdoor deep soaking tubs and traditional Thai massage rooms.

Accommodation is in villas and suites, some with private pools and surrounded by colourful tropical plants and linked by winding pathways, decorated with teak wooden furniture and timber flooring, with bright Thai silks lending splashes of colour. All villas have a rain shower and oversized bath as well as a separate living area. The Two Bedroom Duplex suites are located in the main building and offer families plenty of space; connecting options are also available.

There is a choice of five bars and restaurants including Sala Thai, offering traditional Thai cuisine in the form of set sharing menus and with outdoor seating under the stars, open air beach restaurant Rim Talay which hosts themed buffet dinners every night and there are regular themed events including the Mediterranean Kitchen serving a variety of delicious and healthy Mediterranean meals and Cooking Hour where the chefs reveal their secrets.
