Santhiya Resort and Spa, Koh Yao Yai

Life is definitely a beach. At Santhiya it’s also an infinity pool, or a balcony overlooking a golden sunset, or a tented bed on the end of a pier.

Few places, even in Thailand, rival the Santhiya Resort’s combination of a flawless beach and an idyllic setting. Make sure it becomes one of the destinations on your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Thailand and the innate romance of the place will surely seep into your soul. You may, for example, dine in a private, tented pagoda on the end of a pier – waves gently lapping as the setting sun turns the sky gold. Walk further along the private beach and you’ll encounter fishermen and traditional boat builders. Turn inland and you’ll find local farms woven into a rich, natural tapestry of rain forests and impressive mountains.

Return to Santhiya Resorts and you’ll be pampered in a Thai spa and treated to the best cuisine in a world class restaurant.
