Based on the opinions of frequent travellers from around the world, the beachfront resort was voted as one of the Top 25 Family Hotels in Asia and one of the region’s Top 25 Weddings Hotels by the independent poll. And thanks to idyllic island location nestled in the Gulf of Thailand, it was also selected as one of Asia’s Top 10 Holiday Destinations.
Smart Travel Asia’s Best in Travel Poll is designed to showcase the region’s best hotels, resorts and airlines in a wide range of categories. In its 14th year, the poll does not charge entry fees or offer voter inducements, meaning the results are a true reflection of global opinion.
“We are delighted to have been named one of Asia’s best resorts for families and weddings as these are two of our key target markets. To achieve success in one category would have been wonderful, but to feature twice is a fantastic achievement and testament to the skill and dedication of everyone in the team,” said Sabine Gabriele Lamberts, general manager of Santiburi Koh Samui.
“It’s also great to see Koh Samui named one of Asia’s top ten destinations. It is a true paradise and we are proud to showcase this idyllic island to guests from around the world.”
Set on a stretch of golden sand known as Mae Nam Beach, Santiburi Koh Samui offers a choice of exclusive accommodation, fine restaurants, upscale amenities and engaging activities suitable for all ages.
Family friendly facilities include a huge swimming pool, a well-equipped sports centre with a fitness centre, yoga studio and floodlit tennis courts and complimentary water sports, as well as a choice of expert-led classes such as Thai boxing and yoga.
Children are entertained at the Kid’s Club, which will be refreshed and upgraded before the next high season, while couples or parents can unwind at the Santiburi Spa or play a round of golf course and enjoy breathtaking views and surroundings at Santiburi Country Club.
With the most incredible setting for romance, turquoise seas, vast tropical gardens perfect for wedding, the resort’s suites and villas offer perfect private sanctuaries for honeymooners, especially the recently launched Grand Deluxe Pool Villas, which feature their own high walled gardens and private pools.
