We had the most amazing 10-day stay at Sandalwood, absolute 5 star service at all times. From the moment we arrived until we left, everyone was attentive and nothing was too much trouble. We were provided with a mobile phone for the entire stay, so that we could arrange to be collected by the hotel's driver from anywhere on the island for a modest cost, and some local trips were free of charge during the daytime. The rooms were immaculate, and we had a plunge pool on our balcony with panoramic views across the bay. The room was very comfortable and spacious, with traditional Thai style decor. Breakfast was included, and there was a good selection for even the fussiest eaters. We ate in the restaurant a couple of times in the evening, the food was good, but I thought you could get better value meals in the restaurants nearby. We also used the spa, and had a massage - again, absolutely brilliant. The only slight negative is the really steep hill up to the hotel, so you can't really walk down to the beach etc, but it doesn't matter really, as there's a free shuttle up and down the hill in the daytime. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again, and have already recommended Sandalwood to all my friends!! Hope to visit again soon!

amazing hotel
The moment we got in the car from the airport we were treated like kings and queens. We honestly felt as if we met the most friendliest and accommodating staff working in the villas. On site we were welcomed with hand made flower necklaces, drinks, fresh fruit, and even a welcome sign with our name in the lobby of Sandalwood. Once we were settled in our 2 bedroom grand pool villa we pretty much stayed here for our entire stay. After traveling through the city of Thailand, this villa was the prefect place to unwind and relax.We had a 2 bedroom that gave us the option to have privacy with me and my hubby away from our daughter while napping. The villa is very spacious and allows you to move around freely with out getting in each others way. On the other hand it allowed us to still be close and spend time together as a family. In the villa you have a full kitchen to cook if you may or simply call up room service and have a sit down dinner as a family in the kitchen. Or perhaps just sit out by the pool on a giant floaty while the sun glazes down on you. Don’t worry about who's going to be able to shower first after the pool! You have two sexy elegant bathrooms that both have showers. In the master bedroom there is the jet jacuzzi bathtub and a freestanding deep bathtub in the second bathroom.  For more info on our stay and Koh Samui google Travel With Meko!!!!

Good 6.0
Passed its heydays
We arrived 4h late (around 10pm) after a full day of travelling with two boys because of Air Bangkok issues. The driver picking us up at the airport asked us to wait so he could deal with other clients. We sat on our luggage for an extra 15 minutes to be the last to leave the airport. When the truck arrived, itt was barely large enough for our family and our luggage so I have no clue how he planned to transfer the other couple to start... When we arrived, the greeting by a lady who did not identify herself wasn't too warm. I assumed she was eager to go to bed, as we did. We proceeded to the room and were taken aback by the kitsch and old look of the Amarin "villa", which is a two room apartment without a pool. That being said, the beds (a king and a queen – though we would have preferred two twin/single for our sons) were comfortable and the apartment was clean. In the morning, we were able to enjoy the fantastic views this location offers, which is probably the only justification for the price. In fact, we would have ranked this property higher if value for money was greater. I have no doubt that when there was less competition, the roughly US$400/night was justified, but we the current offer and state of the property, it just can’t be maintained as such without important upgrades to the rooms.

Very good 8.0
Good value overall.
Overall a nice place. The pictures on the website sell this place as having amazing uniterupted views. We booked a two bedroom villa based on the pictures on the website. Some of the villas have this view but others do not, still a nice view but with trees and other villas in the way. Also it is important to note that many of the villas have another villa built directly on top, so that the people above can look directly down into your pool area. This is not the private feel the pictures portray. Villa are usually their own stand alone buildings. Also be aware if you plan to lay in the sun by your villa pool some villas get very little direct sun. The value here is still great. The villas are spacious and well designed. The property even provides a phone to contact the drivers they provide for pick up and drop off. There is a free shuttle to crystal beach a beautiful secluded beach near by for when you feel like laying under a palm tree or a swim in the ocean. If you plan to do allot or exploring taxis and shuttle fees to and from the villas can add up.

I stayed here for 2 nights and was absolutely blown away about how awesome everything was. 1. The room: large, spacious, clean, luxurious, and comfy bed. 2 The staff: absolute superstars. Very attentive, friendly and quick to respond to any need. Memorised my name and made we feel welcome. 3. The food: the included breakfast allows you to order eggs Benedict like you are at a cafe etc in addition to the buffet which was top notch. Had dinner at the restaurant twice. Sensational. High quality food 4. The location: it is away from the centre. 15 min but car. They offer free shuttle service a few times a day. Or they can get you a private car 400b each way. Can be expensive if multi trips per day but the location allows for you to relax and get away from the hustle and bustle! 5. The views: absolutely awesome Overall highly recommend if you want a few nights break! Exceeded my expectations and 12 out of 10!
