The hotel view is so amazing! The staff are very friendly and do the best they could to understand your needs. I was so stoked that the main pool finished construction at my 2nd last night of stay. The room was pretty and comfortable. Please beware of monkey and use monkey lock. But it wasn't much of problem for us. We didn't managed to kayak due to the weather.
My boyfriend thought location was a bit inaccessible but I think that it's fun as there's shuttle boat service and monkey trail as well. Monkey trail is well maintained and well lit.
Kudos to the hotel management and staff

Three of my friends and I stayed at Beyond resort for a total of 8 days, middle of June 2017. We shared 2 sea view villas. Rooms were spacious and comfortable, my only complaint is that housekeeping kept forgetting to leave face/hand towels, sometimes forget robes. BUT, they were quick to deliver upon request. Pool is AMAZING, Beach access fantastic. Breakfast had a lot of options, and their restaurant is quite good (pad thai delicious). GIven it was low/monsoon season, the resort was VERY quiet which was nice. Spa is also great!
Have to give a special shout out to Rachel, guest services. She had so many amazing suggestions for us regarding transportation, activities, restaurants, etc.
Resort is about 15 minutes away from Ao nang, half an hour from the airport. Highly recommend this hotel, it was truly paradise.
"Good service and a nice pool. Close to beaches. "
Overall a good experience for what we paid but found the room air conditioning to be very humid leaving a damp feeling on all our clothes and on the floor.
The breakfast was plenty and had variety. The pool was nice and the bar had a good happy hour.
Hotel is beautiful and the Beach is great. However it is too secluded for stays longer than 3 days. You can do everything there is to do in the island in less than 3 days. Everything else is more than 2 hours away by boat and you can only catch a boat to leave the island at 9:00 am or 1:00 pm. We booked the hotel for 7 days and end up leaving two days earlier because we had nothing else left to do in the entire island. Staff also refuse to refund us the full two days we did not stay, they only refunded one day and that was because we would not make our flight out of Phuket if we stay the full 7 days. No entertainment at night at the hotel either. The closest entertainment venues in the island are 45 minutes away by boat and they charge you up to $60 to take you there. Would not recommend hotel for more than a 3 day stay.
We spent almost 3 weeks at Santhiya and we had a wonderful time. The views are breathtaking, the staff is hard working and very accommodating, and the natives are super kind. The resort is entirely wood, carved wood. We had a 2 bedroom 2 story oceanfront villa with a private pool. It was gorgeous. The resort literally supplies everything for you, robes, slippers, flip flops, ear swaps, toothbrush, toothpaste, razors, shaving cream, beach bag, etc.
Beautiful private beach.
As the other reviews say it is away from everything else but we loved this. It is very private and relaxing.
We had a sunset meal in the restaurant which looks onto the beach.
The bath had been run and filled with petals for our arrival.
The spa is a little taste of luxury too (a lot more expensive than other Thai massages in Ao Nang but very good)
It was the perfect start to our honeymoon.
We then went onto another hotel to explore other parts of Krabi.

Very nice hotel - superb pool and facilities - location is a toss up as it depends if people want to spend time at the hotel or visit places around krabi as its not the best location to move around krabi but a great location if you want to stay at the resort cut off from all the other beaches and the town
Although on a peninsula, visitors reach Railay Beach only by boat, 10 minutes from Ao Nang and 30 minutes from Krabi. The West Beach, surrounded by scenic limestone cliffs and tropical jungle, beckons sunbathers with soft sand and spectacular sunsets. The fantastic limestone cliffs challenge rock climbers from around the world, while instructors lead classes for less-experienced climbers.
