Our Opinion:

Santiburi means “Peaceful City” – and it’s true, the resort definitely looks like a serene village (rather than a city) with its charming guest villas quietly nestled in the garden. Here, guests experience blissful relaxation... but the resort is also a perfect place for families and active holiday-makers who will enjoy the extensive choice of sports activities. As for golf addicts, they will definitely spend idyllic holidays here...
