This resort is located at a beautiful stretch of beach on the Northern part of the island, along Bophud beach. There are a few other fave resorts of mine along this same stretch.
Koh Samui’s version from this popular chain more than lives up to the reputations of its sister properties. With a top location on the island on Bophud beach, the Anantara Si Kao Resort & Spa offers you plenty of opportunities to take advantage of the beach and water with windsurfing and kayaking topping the list of pursuits and the nearby Fisherman’s Village offers a chance to get out and about and mingle with the locals.
The lay out of the resort is also very convenient, and it's a nice walk through the resort to the beach unless you booked one of the beach villas or rooms.
With it's 82 guest rooms, 18 Anantara suites and 6 Royal Anantara suites, two with their own pool and terrace near the beach, you will find the ultimate in luxury and a perfect getaway.
In the meantime, back at the Resort, you will never tire of the staff’s extreme dedication to service, the high-class spa and the variety of delicious cuisines offered at several fine restaurants. After a stay at the Anantara, your only regret will come when you have to pack your bags and go home.
Worthwhile booking this resort for it's nice location and luxury on offer.
The Santiburi Resort in Maenam is one of the hotels that I used to work at as a dive instructor and I have fond memories of this hotel. It's one of the earliest real luxury resorts on the island, being build in 1993 and they were already offering spa services before it became trendy and they're still going strong and serving an outstanding service and experience.
Their 71 rooms are amongst Koh Samui's most luxurious hideaways, the Santiburi Resort & Spa in Maenam blends 23 acres of tropical gardens with a river gently meandering down to a private 300 meter white sand beach. All units at the Santiburi Resort are superbly designed Thai-style Villas, built to be in harmony with their surroundings, and feature beautiful wooden floors, opulent Siamese furnishings, and a large private terrace. For a long time they had the largest swimming pool on the island and they have various sport facilities including tennis and squash courts.
If you like to be pampered and you can afford it, this is a good place to stop at.
