Recent guest reviews

The resort is a short walk (15min) from the Main Road. Its a good thing, its quiet but if you need something from the Town you can have a short walk or use free shuttle couple Times a day. Resort consists from several Villas located in the tropical Garden. We had delux Villa, firstly located close to the reception but construction working noise from the area behind the resort was so disturbing we asked about silent Villa. The resort relocated us without any problem. The Villa is spacious, wooden floor, enormous będzie with moskito net, big bathroom with Bath and shower, balcony, and any facitities you Will need like Umbrella, TV, moskito repellent etc. There is a nice pool with sun beds, and also sun beds close to the beach. But unfortunately there is no beach during the day because of the high tide. If you need it you can walk 5minutes to the right there is a nice beach and also a cheap restaurant. The resort restaurant is nice with full choice of Western and Asian meals. But a Little bit pricey. The breakfast buffett is nice, with good coffee, Hot meals, fruits and sweets. Generally Its a great resort, only disadvatages are pricey restaurant, no beach, a little bit outworn facitities. Besides that its a great place to stay, with great service. I can highlighted_blocks recommend it.

We spent 1 week in this lovely resort, located in one of the nicest areas of Koh Chang. The resort is charming. Breakfast in adequate. Good service, good rooms and nice staff. Defintely, highly recommended

Santhiya Tree is a gorgeous resort on Klong Prao Beach. The rooms are set in beautifully landscaped gardens. Our room had pool access at the back - a feature we sadly didn't get to use, due to the storms. The bed was so comfortable, and the black-out curtains did a great job of keeping out the early morning light. Breakfast was amazing, with a good selection of Asian and western dishes. Credit to the management team for training their staff so well - every single person acknowledged us if we or they went past. The resort is a 15 minute walk to the main road, where you'll find minimarts, restaurants, ATMs etc. If this is too much, I believe there are complimentary shuttles that run fairly frequently throughout the day.

Gorgeous villas with additional extra feature of being able to directly access a pool behind. Room very comfortable and spacious will all the extras you expect at this kind of price. Breakfast had a vast amount of choice, both western and Thai. Main pool was a good size with plenty of sun loungers and also a huge range over looking the beach. Great place to watch sunset (See photo) Would definitely stay here again

We have spent 4 nights at the Santhiya Tree Resort. Best place to get some rest. The team is super nice. Always a smile for you. Really, if you go to Koh Chang and you're looking for a Thai original place to stay, one address ==> Santhiya Tree Resort

My wife and I have extensively travelled Thailand, however having never previously visited Koh Chang we decided in blind faith to have our wedding there. Therefore, I will break this review up into the Hotel, the Wedding and finally the Island. Hotel – The hotel is simply beautiful and due to it being set on a quiet beach, you really do have that secluded feel that is so hard to find these days in Thailand. The rooms were fantastic, the bathroom even came with a small waterfall, the room itself was big, extremely clean, the bed was comfortable and we even received a fruit basket on arrival. The pool area is vast, not crowded and as with everything at the hotel, fantastically maintained and so clean. The food at the hotel is very nice, and an added bonus is that if you take a short walk along the beach (either direction) you will find more bars, restaurants and massages. Above all, what really made this hotel truly special is the unbeatable high level of service and attention to detail, simply faultless and at times staggering. Wedding – Again, I could not ask for more. The GM, Khun Thamanoon was unbelievably good. My wife is not the easiest person to please and even she was delighted by the day – the flowers, the make-up artist, the venue, the food everything was just so good. Nothing was too much trouble. Both our guests and ourselves were treated like royalty for the day – if you want a sure bet amazing wedding without having to put too much effort in, this is the place. Even before travelling, the negotiations, payment and itinerary were arranged with minimal fuss and with total confidence. I cannot recommend it enough. Koh Chang – Having previously travelled to Samui, Phangan, Tao, Phuket etc… we wanted something more real, tranquil and undeveloped. The island is truly 10 years behind the rest, with few tourists and no groups of lads of the lash, yet still have plenty to do and see. We took a private transfer from BKK and it only took (with Ferry) about 5 hours. The waterfalls on the island are truly spectacular, we also took a boat trip, which sadly involved a few Jellyfish stings, but nothing too serious! A few of our guests had children, whom were entertained at the trampoline park close by etc… Overall, we have really found our little piece of Thailand and cannot wait to return. I just hope that as the Island inevitably becomes more popular, that it does not lose its unique charm. I just want to take the opportunity to thank Khun Thamanoon and his staff for making the whole week absolutely faultless and truly memorable - although I am now suffering from serious post-holiday blues!

generally good stuff: We were a couple staying at the Santhiya resort for 4 nights. Overall the place is very pretty and clean, the gardens are nice and very well maintained, and so is the pool and the resort's beach. Do take into consideration that during this time of year the water is pretty high so there isn't a lot of beach, per se... :) The beach completely disappears during high tide. Also, don't expect turquoise water :) if that's something you care about. Breakfast was great and diverse with good service. Deluxe room was spacious and had everything we need in it. The resort is more of the quiet, chill kind you can find in Koh Chang - it's a bit secluded/farther away from the main road, which is both an advantage and a disadvantage at times (it's about a 15 min walk to the main road from the hotel. not the nicest walk, especially at night. the hotel offers free shuttles a few times a day. We paid them 100 baht for a drive to the main road if we wanted to go out on our own schedule.) stuff we didn't like: 1. we ate dinner in the hotel's restaurant (on the beach) one night. Both food and drinks were not up to standard comparing to the very high prices and the other restaurants we visited in the island during our stay. The view and atmosphere were very nice, but overall we would not recommend eating dinner at the hotel. 2. The hotel offered currency exchange in the reception. Although we didn't use the service, we want to point out that the exchange rates were of the worst we've seen in the entire country (27-28 THB for 1 USD), let alone a few hundred meters from the hotel, where there was a fair change in the main street. We were actually given a better rate by a bus tout in Cambodia before crossing the border... There's a big difference between charging high prices for good service/product, and simply overcharging you because someone thinks they can, and that you for some reason - wouldn't mind just paying more. We expected a hotel of this standard to be much more reasonable, or better not offer this service at all. 3. The water pressure in our room was very poor. It wasn't a nice experience to take a shower. Water was either scorching hot or too cold. This was in strong contrast to the very spacious, decorated and high-standard bathroom... After the first time we talked to the reception about it, they said there was some general issue with the water at the hotel, that they're working on it and that it should be okay in about 30 min. The issue wasn't resolved, and the reception didn't follow up on it. Second time we asked for a technician to be sent to our room, we were told they will send someone. Still, the problem wasn't solved, we don't even know if someone actually came to check the shower, and again - this was not followed up on, and reception did not contact us to inquire whether the problem was solved.

We really enjoyed our stay at the hotel. The staff is extremely polite and accommodating. You feel very welcome all the time. The beach is wonderful. Sand beach with no rocks in the water. The water temperature around 27 degrees. Just perfect. The pool areas are also pretty. The restaurants are very good. We especially enjoyed the seafood buffet and the seafood grill night at the By the water restaurant. Love music and fire show included. The rooms are nice, nothing out of the ordinary though.

Perfect resort for honeymoon or with children! Excellent location, friendly staff who will help with all needs. We definitely recommend this resort to others. There is a great main road with good restaurants and shopping facilities. The hotel is clean and well kept. Must try resort!

Most friendly resort ever, service mind here is the best of anything. So lovely and great first impression of hotel. Fortunately everything about the hotel was exceptional, It was clean, stylish, roomy with excellent service. There are various choices of breakfast. I was very pleased with my stay, and although short and sweet this time, I hope to be back for a longer visit in the future.
