Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The resort is very well designed and laid out and the grounds are beautifully maintained. We had a pool suite and the staff kindly replaced one of the sun lounging mats with a table and two chairs which was much more flexible. Unfortunately it rained heavily during the first part of the stay and the small pool was really too cold to use. The beach is very nice to swim off but they could do with more loungers in this area. The breakfast is outstanding with full waiter service for coffee and main dishes. We also enjoyed the happy hour between 5-6 pm to have a drink overlooking the beach. We ate there a couple of times and the food was good - but there is a 10% service charge and an additional 7% VAT so it does become quite expensive. There are a few restaurants nearby - we ate at Khao Kate's a few times and the food was excellent and very reasonably priced. We appreciated that it is in one of the quieter areas - but a 400 Baht taxi will take you to the Fisherman's Village area which is a riot of restaurants and drinking places. We also did a day trip around the island in a a 4 x 4which was great value and had some amazing views from the top of the island. The staff were all excellent and very helpful and the room servicing was very prompt. All in all, we had a great stay and I would certainly return here.

Hotel's Favourite
Stayed at Anantara for 7 days for our 10 years anniversary. What can I say??? Amazing customer service, so accommodating and always at your disposal,. We stayed in the Plunge pool room and the room was kept so clean the entire time and was never short of anything in the room (actually never had to ask for anything, they thought of everything). Had dinner at the famous TREE TOPS restaurant too which was excellent. Had that grateful feeling at the end of our holidays that what we expererienced was very special indeed so thank you the whole team at ANANTARA LAWANA. Nicolas & Ijtihad.

Where to start? We concluded this is the nicest hotel we have ever stayed in….!! We’ve been to higher star and higher price but this was just a perfect blend of great service, great location and real attention to detail. It felt like everything had been thought through and just ‘worked’…. Not easy to do this. Room was very comfortable and there were lots of great little touches like providing flip flops and a beach bag, as well as a golf buggy if you ever didn’t want to tackle the (very beautiful) stairway winding through the grounds. Staff were attentive and genuine. Not unusual for Thailand but it felt extremely well orchestrated and managed. Breakfast was fabulous, so much choice from Indian to Thai to bakery, egg station and so much more. From the time we arrived (signalled by the sounding of the big gong) through to the whole team waving goodbye, our 5 night stay was very special - well done Anantara!!!

We had 2 weeks with breakfast only board. Lovely private beach but 70 steps to access so some may find that difficult . Plentiful sun loungers and very friendly staff. Breakfast was very good and so was lunch and dinner but we chose to eat out most evenings at Fishermans Village. Rooms very nicely furnished and plunge pool a bonus.

We had a great week at the hotel. The staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. It is set on hillside so with the heat can be a struggle for some but they have an excellent buggy service. Just have to phone reception or ask staff member and golf buggies will take you anywhere on the grounds. Happy hour at the ocean lounge is very pleasant. There are a couple of restaurants in easy walking distance of hotel and prices for meal with drinks for 2 under 1000 Baht. If you want to go a little further taxis are ridiculously cheap as well and there is a rank opposite the hotel.
