Santhiya Tree Koh Chang Resort 

Carve out some quiet time

This intimate traditional Thai beachside retreat offers seclusion and serenity in equal measure.

Settled between Koh Chang’s rugged mountain peaks, stretching all the way down to the golden shores of Klong Prao beach, this flagship Santhiya Tree resort is a sight to behold. The palatial architecture of the main building with its teak interiors and ornate wood carvings adds a charming authenticity to your stay and, when matched with the attentive service and opulent facilities, results in a rejuvenating ambience from the moment you arrive.

Why we love Santhiya Tree Koh Chang Resort

Start your day with a plentiful buffet breakfast at Saaitara Restaurant. It also serves up lunch and dinner. Down at the beach, Chantara with its large patio and panoramic sea views is a wonderful spot for a romantic candlelit dinner. By The Sea offers service throughout the day and its decking by the water is a favourite spot to watch the sun go down with a cocktail or lassi.
