“Welcome to your pool villa, Madam”, said the staff who unlocked the beautiful hand-carved wooden door before us.  This was the next thing we saw.  This was our very own pool villa for the weekend.

Santhiya Resort and Spa Koh Yao Yai is an eco-luxury resort comprising of 39 teak wood Pool Villas and 60 Deluxe rooms–all situated among the trees on the hillside.  The property boasts the best of what Koh Yao Yai has to offer–the long sandy beach front, the lush tropical forest and the panoramic view of the ocean frontage from the hill.

This weekend I was spoiled and we stayed in the Ocean View Pool Villa Suite. Santhiya Resort and Spa Ocean View Pool Villa Suite Bee's Journey Food Travel Lifestyle BlogSanthiya Resort and Spa Ocean View Pool Villa Suite Bee's Journey Food Travel Lifestyle BlogThis is a 150 square metres stand-alone villa with a spacious patio with sun beds, one double bedroom with a separate living area and an outdoor jacuzzi.  There are also indoor shower and outdoor shower!  So many options for rinsing and cleaning oneself (and in various environment!).

Now, let’s have a little detour of the villa.  First, the living area.Santhiya Resort and Spa Ocean View Pool Villa Suite Bee's Journey Food Travel Lifestyle BlogSanthiya Resort and Spa Ocean View Pool Villa Suite Bee's Journey Food Travel Lifestyle Blog

And of course, the pool.

And once the pool got too chilly, it was time to move to the outdoor jacuzzi.

Though we were highly impressed by the fact that the bathroom is larger than the bedroom, we spent most of our time at our private pool–naturally.  Here are some of our favourite shots!Santhiya Resort and Spa Ocean View Pool Villa Suite Bee's Journey Food Travel Lifestyle BlogSanthiya Resort and Spa Ocean View Pool Villa Suite Bee's Journey Food Travel Lifestyle Blog

In summary, Santhiya Ocean Pool Villa Suite was fantastic.  It had everything we needed and we had absolutely no urge to leave the villa for a “change of atmosphere”.  Despite the fact that it was located quite close to other villas, it felt very secluded and private.  It is situated up on the hill, but we had no problem with the resort’s shuttle service which ran very frequently.  We had an amazing weekend and definitely would like to be back in the near future.
