We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Santai. Pool was lovely and the restaurant served delicious meals. The Locciatine products were delightful. We missed our morning coffee however the shopping complex was just a short walk away. We would go back.

Perfect base from which to catch up with nearby family. Quiet, peaceful & with all that we needed for a much needed relaxing break. Loved the onsite Spice Den restaurant & made good use of it, visited 3 evenings out of the 5 !

Beautiful room and surroundings to relax and enjoy a romantic weekend away. On site restaurant The Spice Den had great food. Facilities and pool/spa excellent, next time we go we will try the Wellness Centre for a massage.

Another relaxing getaway to Santai. Room was clean (other then a stray grape under the bed). Pool and common areas are very clean. Hot tub is more of a luke warm tub. Spice Den had amazing food as always.

Perfect for a short stay pretty isolated but everything you would need is a short walk away recommend the local Pizza shop very nice the onsite Thai restaurant ok but I wouldn't rave about it a captive market I think

Beautiful resort just like being in Bali only better. Very friendly helpful staff. Restaurant looked lovely. Easy walk to the beach and short drive to Kingscliff shops and beach and restaurants. Highly recommend. Family friendly.

Have stayed in this resort before and enjoyed our visit immensely, great pools but if you prefer the ocean then it's just a very short walk to the beach - pristine beaches make this a delightful place to take a stroll.

I had a lovely weekend at Santai Retreat, the whole experience was amazing, the Spice Den is amazing and the food to die for, the only thing I would change is they need ramps on the stairs to take your luggage from one side to the other
