Second visit to Santhiya. This time we bought the kids who loved it!! Unfortunately shorter stay this time, 5 days instead of 10 as we wanted to spend a few days in Samui to get some dental work done, which was a shame, being so brief.
We love everything about the resort. The staff are attentive, super friendly yet professional. The facilities are brilliant and the atmosphere is relaxing and enjoyable.
Our kids had so much fun.

Great overall experience, somewhat secluded area where hotel is, I stayed for a week, I'll be staying there again next year for sure. It's nice how it's kinda in the area on the Island where it's off on it's own, away from crowds and such.
The front desk staff is helpful but minimal English and knowledge of the excursions on the island other than to give you a brochure
The hotel is very nice and the location is probably the best in chaweng
200 baht a day mopeds out front were awesome
Not cheap by Thailand standards bit worth it
Wouldn't stay anywhere else in koh samui
After a week it felt like home
No room service and limited reception hours - closes at 11 only drawbacks but food options / restaurants around here are amazing
It had a lovely pool, cleaned daily, and very short walk to the beach and great internet. Bed was a bit hard for us, and the kitchen could have done with a few more utensils like microwave and toaster but other than that sunshine residences was great. People must check in at milky bay resort, you can't find sunshine residences on your own. Great place to have a few friends stay at as I can sleep 4 comfortably.
Hotel is very good loated
Room was on the ocean
Food was average not bad but very expensive
A lot of good restaurant s around
So they have competition and I don't see any point to eat in the hotel
We enjoyed there very much
We stayed at the Dakanda for the duration of the full moon party. We chose the Dakanda because of cost and location not to close to the party but not to far about 15 - 20min tuk tuk ride location did not let us down was perfect. The staff were great one in-particular "Ozzie", Ozzie went above and beyond and organised our transport to and from party and anywhere else we wanted to go he new us individually by name (even what we drank), and gave us Hotel Business cards and his number if anything happened to us while at the party for people to contract.
The Hotel was great we stayed in garden Villas the pool was nice and clean and the ocean was beautiful, the staff would go out a few times a day (on tide change) and sweep up any seaweed / leaves of the sand so it was always very clean.
My 3 favourite things about the Dakanda was:
1st the service and kindness from the staff
2nd the fantastic aircon mixed with silence perfect for hangover cure
3rd eating each meal overlooking the ocean and listening to waves - cant wake up to anything better :)
DAKANDA - you will most certainly be seeing us again thank you for the great stay :)
