- Very different kind of luxury. Most of the typical "luxury" hotels follow same stereotype of the artificial “poshness”. Excessive decor, fancy for the sake of fancy, blah-blah-blah. Maybe some people like it but I find it boring and uncomfortable. Anantara somehow feels very cosy, unobtrusive, tranquil, featuring very own style.
- This is not a hotel with nice spots of greenery, it is a hotel _inside_ beautiful landscape garden. Army of staff keeps working round the clock maintaining its pristine sate.
- Staff is mostly great, some of them just good. Never had any major reasons to complain.
- Not crowded at all. I was staying at the end of October and it never felt busy, neither by the pool nor at the restaurants or around the beach.
Not so great
- Staff rides those electric club cars from very early morning. Those are noisy enough to wake you up.
- Obviously the beach is some kind of national reserve and no one can build anything on it, but having an alley along the edge of the hotel with few benches to enjoy watching that big red burning ball of light going down into the sea, that would be great.
- Anantara Vacation Club. Avoid at any cost. Sales presentation is not only a waste of time but also would not pass typical European consumer sales regulations. I.e. "best offer if you buy today only", "we cannot show you a legal contract wording if you are not serious about joining".
