Just a 20-minute speedboat ride from Phuket, the Santhiya Koh Yao Yai is a brand new five-star resort and spa surrounded by 38 acres of tropical forest, untouched white-sand beaches and the clear warm waters of the Andaman Sea.
At the leading edge of eco-luxury, the resort's 24 deluxe rooms offer garden or sea views and are located in the resort's two-story low-rise buildings, perfect for couples and small families. The 30 teakwood villas, located along the water's edge, all have private pools and offer wonderful sea views and access to a private beach. Taking its influence from the ancient kingdom of Lanna, the resort's architecture and design is unmistakably Thai, showing off a combination of the finest materials and most exquisite craftsmanship both in the buildings themselves as well as every detail found throughout the resort.
The resort's Chantara Restaurant serves the very best in both Thai and international fine dining with views across the Andaman Sea. By The Sea Restaurant, with its beautiful beachside setting, serves succulent seafood, Thai delicacies and international classics, while providing the perfect place for a relaxing evening cocktail as the sun sets.
Facilities include the indulgent Ayurvana Spa, offering a full range of rejuvenating treatments, a huge freeform outdoor pool, a fitness centre and bicycle, motorbike and car rental. There's also the resort's 'wooden car service', a quirky yet practical way of getting around the resort.
