Santiburi Resort & Spa

Situated on Mae Nam beach on Koh Samui, this gorgeous Thai retreat  will be loved by the whole family....

This Resort and Spa is so relaxing you will not want to leave. It has loads of activities for adults and children alike or if you fancy nothing more than lazing on a hammock looking out to sea this could be the place for you.

Why we love....

A beautiful relaxing site. This Resort has all the bells and whistles of a Resort but with a warm Thai charm. Lots for the children to do in beautiful surroundings. The beach cinema makes this a winner as the adults can go for a romantic evening meal on the beach (guilt free!….well until you order dessert anyway!)


The site is mostly low rise villas, that are beautifully furnished in classical Thai design .


The resort is set within a beautiful 23 hectare palm garden, complete with franjipani (our favourite!) and a variety of lush tropical plants and trees. If that wasn’t enough it also sits right on a 300-metre private section of Mae Nam beach. The beach is a stunning tropical Thai beach and has a variety of restaurants and cafes running along it.

The Children will love....

The large outdoor play area (complete with rope swings!),sand pit and toys, bikes (that they can borrow and ride around the resort on), Table tennis, rabbits and chickens to feed and look after (or chase back into their homes when they decide to go on an explore!), an outdoor activity centre where your children can do a variety of activities such as flower garlands, batique painting and bracelet making. There is a small TV and computer room but they are a little tired looking.....but who wants to watch TV when there is so much going on? Children can be signed in to the beach club aged 3+. During the day the Kids Clubs Staff come down to the beach to play with children that are on the Resorts beach (so mom and dad can have a bit of hammock time!).


There is lots of fun to be had at the beautiful (and very large swimming pool). There is also a small children’s splash pool (with toys!) and an outdoor jacuzzi. Free mineral water, fruit and ice cream are also given out around the pool during the day! There are plenty of restaurants onsite and the breakfast is delicious with juices/pancakes/waffles and more made to order and a good buffet selection as well! When your children can't stay sat another second they can feed the fish in the pond (located next to the breakfast restaurant!). and not forgetting the parents there is a world class Golf Course 10 minutes away , tennis courts, free sailing, squash courts, fitness Centre and an amazing Award Winning Spa!

Little Niggles....

The beach is a bit sloping and the sea gets deep quite quickly. The outdoor jacuzzi has a strong sucking vent at the bottom so it would be best to keep the little ones out of here! As with all tropical places don’t forget the bug spray, especially for the outdoor cinema.
