2/10 Poor

This was supposed to be a 5 star resort.
This was supposed to be a 5 star resort. Well. It is far from that. When I ordered through hotels.com it was specifically noted that airport transfer is included. This place is located at a remote island and only accessible with a boat. Upon check in the guy at the desk argued aggressively that I need to pay extra 950 Bhat for the transfer since it's not included. Be aware of this extra payments as the trap will not be exposed until you are already on the way to the hotel!! Secondly, the weather was stormy and we had 1 full day without electricity! The staff told me the whole island has no electricity due to bad weather but this was not the case as the lights outside were lit just fine. The room was leaking and rain started to fall inside and flood the villa. They ignored the issue when I called them ! The staff understand basic English only and communication is minimal, making check in and check out process tiresome. Food ordered as room service was surly not a 5 star - small and basic pizza that belong to a 3 start hotel at the best case

4/10 Fair

Needs improvement
Having stayed at the Santhiya before in 2019 I was bitterly disappointed as to how much the standards had dropped. The room was only cleaned twice in 11 days, 3 of the restaurants were closed, Wi-Fi didn’t work the entire trip, restaurant menus were very limited and all bars/restaurants closed at 9.30 meaning there was no where to have a drink or relax besides the room after 9.30. While I appreciate the pandemic has affected hotels around the world, the standards just weren’t there and the staff and particularly managers did very little to help. I love the hotel, it’s location and the beautiful authenticity of it all. Just disappointed in how much their standards had dropped.
