Shantaa Resort is a unique hotel on Koh Kood and it’s quite difficult for us to describe this amazing place without sounding like an advertising agency. Many guests want to return each year once they’ve been there and many refer to a stay at Shantaa Koh Kood as one of the most memorable moments of their lives. We can confirm this from our personal experience as Shantaa was the first resort we stayed at many years ago when we arrived on Koh Kood for the first time, we’ll never forget!
Shantaa is Hindi for tranquility and this is exactly what guests will find at this beautifully landscaped property with ocean view and only a limited number of bungalows. Spread out over a sloping hill are sala’s (wooden terraces with sun loungers), a reading room, massage salon and a spacious open-air restaurant with sea view.
Downhill is a small but beautiful white sand beach with sun beds & kayaks and the lovely beach bar ‘Shantaa Bar Bara’. This beach (great snorkeling spot!) is next to one of Koh Kood’s public piers where the Ko Kut Express & Boonsiri Ferry arrive and depart. For people who prefer a larger beach it’s only a few steps to the other side of the pier where Ao Tapao Beach is which is often completely empty. Along the Northern edge of Shantaa’s property there is another small beach with bar (Shantaa Gati Café). This beach is even more quiet and perfect for sunbathers who want complete relaxation.
The restaurant (with sea view) receives very good reviews and it’s no problem for the chef to meet any special requirements.
There are four different room types at Shantaa Resort.
The Shantaa Villa offers room for four persons with two Queen Size Beds. Shantaa Villas are located uphill with wide ocean views. The rooms have an open-air garden bathroom with rain shower and all Villas have a private balcony with seaview. To the beach it’s only about 150 meters from the furthest Villa.
The romantic Shantaa Sweet is more downhill and closer to the beach. Sweets are designed for couples and offer a bedroom with King Size Bed, an outdoor living area with sea view and an open-air garden bathroom including a bathtub for two persons.
The Extra Sweets and Double Sweets are in the Northern part of Shantaa’s stretched out lawns and they’re close to the small Northern beach. The Extra Sweets are newer and larger than the Sweets and the Double Sweets are units with two bedrooms and two bathrooms complemented by a spacious outdoor terrace and designed for four persons.
The open-air garden bathrooms are Shantaa’s signature and really look like mini tropical paradises. For a full list of room amenities and more room pictures, please see the room details by clicking the ‘Book Now’ button.
The management of Shantaa Resort highly values to inform their guests well because they wouldn’t want you to be disappointed. Please note that there are no TV’s in the rooms, that the air-conditioning works from 18h00 till 08h00 because of the limited power supply on the island and that there isn’t a minibar and/or refrigerator in the bungalows but a 24h coffee & tea corner in the restaurant.
With lots of attention to details the simplicity and serenity of Koh Kood is reflected in every aspect of this amazing resort and its atmosphere. The staff is very friendly, service-minded and professional, they really go out of their way to ensure every guest has all he or she may require.
