This intimate traditional Thai retreat is wrapped in mature tropical gardens and unfolds onto a pretty sweep of private sand offering seclusion and serenity in equal measures.
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 add a revered charm to your stay and when matched with the attentive service and opulent facilities, results in a rejuvenating celestial ambience from the moment you arrive.
This charming resort is a place to come and get away from it all but when you’re not soaking up the spectacular vistas from the infinity pool or unwinding at the tranquil beach with a good book, there are lots of activities to choose from. Authentic Thai cooking classes will deepen your knowledge of the local culture and reveal the simplicity and secrets behind your favourite dishes while the free kayak and paddle-board hire add a sense of adventure as you scour the national marine park for tropical sea life.
The divine pool suites are located within the traditional building and these polished wooden spaces gleam with quintessential Thai touches providing a wonderful sense of place. Oversized beds with crisp linens meet delicately carved spacious terraces complete with outdoor bathtubs and plunge pools which deliver panoramic views and a sense of grandeur. Outside, the picturesque gardens are dotted with a collection of villas each dressed exquisitely with hand-crafted teak furniture paired with sumptuous soft furnishings. The open-air bathroom with over-sized jacuzzi is a noteworthy feature of the Poolside Villa while the Hideaway Pool Villa is an obvious choice for those seeking more space and seclusion.
