“Not bad”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Accommodation and pool was a little dated for a '5 star' resort we felt although the hotel grounds are beautiful. We were a little underwhelmed and disappointed by the lack of typical Thai hospitality....on several occasions we were completely ignored when staff passed us by in the foyer/ lobby and grounds- as regular visitors to Thailand we found this to be quite unusual!
The location of the hotel was probably it's most endearing quality- just a short stroll to the many wonderful restaurants in Fishermans Village.
As a family of four requiring two (adjoining ) rooms the cost of our five day (peak season) stay was excessive - we won't be staying here again- we have stayed at other 5 star resorts which we feel offered much better service, accommodation standard and value for money.

Dear Prue T

Greetings from Anantara Bophut Resort & Spa

First of all we would like to thank you for sharing your experiences with us and other readers here on TA. We are glad to read that the gardens and grounds and the location of our resort were great however we are dissapointed to read that you felt our resort were lacking on the Tradiitonal Thai Hospitality and you felt the resort were little "outdated".

We would like to inform you that the resort reopened in November 2013 after an extensive refurbishment and since then we only received positive comments.

I would appreciate if you could send me a mail with more details so we could address this with our team to ensure to provide you for your future visits a better experience.

With kind regards

Loved the entrance with the bridge and the decor of Monkeys. We enjoyed the swimming pool a lot especially when happy hour and we swim to the pool bar to get drinks. The dinner at Fullmoon restaurant was very nice. We had quite relaxing 3 days here and will definitely stay here again when we come back to Samui.

After 3 days at anantara lawana we thought it would be very tough to match the experience. But we were very pleasantly surprised. From the moment you drive though the amazing gardens to the banging drum welcome and a relaxing tea welcome drink we were at home immediately. The rooms are beautiful and have been very carefully laid out, we stayed in a junior suite, it was exactly what we needed for 4 days of relaxation. The pool and full moon restaurant lay out with beautiful beach views was out of this world. Each day we layer around without a care in the world, which was stated with a fantastic breakfast and friendly staff, Anna the breakfast hostess was very very friendly along with the assistant manager ( Thai restaurant manager) who we saw all over the resort and talked to us on many occasions. Yet another amazing anantara experience made exceptional by the service and care of the staff. Try ful mon restaurant, it is a must

We stayed with the Anantara Hotel group again after feeling a bit isolated at one of the smaller , and we'd have to say less luxurious and less expensive resorts.
We have stayed at the Anantara Riverside in bangkok and were equally blown away with the consistent good service, quality of accommodation and "feel' .
It's not low cost, but for a large suite with two balconies and sea views it was just worth it.
Suggest staying at a more budget hotel for a few nights , then upping the stay to a suite or junior suite at Anantara and it just gives you a great ending to you holiday.

Room Tip: Ask to see the different grades of room, like us you might say "what the heck" and go for...

This is a really delightful beach resort surrounded by tropical gardens and conveniently placed with a short walk to Fisherman's Village. We stayed 11 nights in a delux garden room which was spotlessly clean and well serviced every day. The hotel is well appointed with the added bonus of a generous pool overlooking the ocean - one of the nicest pools we've had the pleasure of enjoying. The choice at breakfast was exceptional and all staff were very friendly and helpful. A big thankyou to 'Frost' for making our stay extra special. Great job by him and his staff in making guests feel welcome and nothing was too much trouble. Great spot, great food, excellent service.

From the minute you walk in, the guards, gardeners and everyone who greets you make you feel so welcomed.
My little daughter enjoyed her stay as everyone at the restaurant and the front office remembered her name.
Rooms are very comfortable. The beach is lovely.
Breakfast is very good.
We have recommended and will continue to recommend the Anantara Bophut to everyone we know. Once again a HUGE thank you to Celine, Louis, Mr Manish and all the rest of the staff.

Fantastic resort. Great for honeymooners. The breakfast variety was awesome and the pool was very nice. Location is close to Fisherman's Village where there's plenty of local restaurants and bars. The resort service especially housekeeping is excellent. Everything we expected from a luxury resort.
