Shantaa

Koh Kood | First Class

Shantaa is a Hindi word meaning tranquillity and that aptly sums up the ambiance of this family run resort. There are no TV’s, no pool, no gym, no kids club – just plenty of space amongst the acres of gardens in which to kick back with a book and soak up the sea views.

Located on the west coast of the island at Ao Tapao, the resort is spread over a sloping hill that leads down to two beaches. The south beach, which is a great spot for snorkelling, is next to one of Koh Kood’s public piers, so regular boat arrivals are to be expected, although it’s not a constant noisy hive of activity. Stroll away from the pier and you’ll discover a vast stretch of coconut fringed beach dotted with sun beds and home to the Shantaa’s beach bar. A second smaller beach (and 2nd snack bar) can be found to the north of the resort and whilst it’s not the best place for swimming, it’s a quieter spot for sunbathing.

Accommodation comprises of 19 spacious individual villas that all enjoy views towards the sea from a private outdoor terrace, albeit the odd coconut palm may obscure a fully unobstructed ocean view. Interiors are sleek and stylish: think polished dark wood flooring and fresh white linen, with an open-air garden bathroom complete with an oversized bathtub (in most rooms). Varying slightly in terms of location, Shantaa Villas sit slightly higher up the hillside (still just 200 metres from the beach), Shantaa Sweets are located close to the south beach, the larger Extra Sweets and the two-bedroomed Double Sweets can be found near the north beach.
