Santhiya Resort and Spa, Koh Phangan

Well, one of the reasons you decided upon a luxury, tailor-made vacation to Thailand was the chance to cast yourself away on a tropical island, far from the daily charge of normal life. And Santhiya Koh Phangan was the perfect choice.

The eco-resort is only separated from the sea by a stretch of fine, white sand. It features a Saaitara pool and lagoon and it is set in a pre-eminent place on one of Thailand’s prettiest islands. Turn away from the sea view for a moment and you’ll be looking at natural forest covering impressive hillsides as far as you can see. Turn towards the resort and you’ll be faced by an eco-chic collection of teakwood buildings designed to fold quietly into the landscape – enhancing rather than detracting.
