“Relaxing and secluded”
Reviewed 14 May 2014 via mobile

Just had a great week at Anantara Si Kao. The view from Aqua and The Boathouse at sunset were sensational. The staff were very friendly and their smiles in the morning brightened your day. The hanging daybeds on the beach were very peaceful and relaxing.

My BF and I currently live in Phuket. A couple of friends came from Switzerland to visit us and we decided to take a couple of days to discover another part of Thailand. We end up in Anantara Sikao and it was a WOW experience. Upon arrival the staff was very friendly and offer us a welcome drink with local coconut sweets. The room was perfect, clean, nice bathroom, amazing view and to top up we got amenities (champagne and fruit basket). We have no kids and we wanted to enjoy a peaceful moment in the "adults only" swimming pool. Also we went for a trip in the islands near by and it was just breathtaking. If you go to Anantara Sikao, you must try the activities. Food at the Italian Restaurant was tasty. At the bar, there is a young guy who will make you a special cocktail upon request. Lots of choice for breakfast! We will definitely come back! Thank to all the wonderful team!

Room Tip: Sea view room with balcony!

Dear Guest,

Thank you for posting your comment on Trip Advisor.

We were very happy to read your review, and are glad that we could contribute to making the trip for you and your boyfriend a memorable experience.

Thank you also for highlighting the facilities including our adults pool. The team has worked hard to create some different zones in the resort that cater for couples who wish for privacy and facilities that are children free.

For other Trip Advisor readers, the resort also offers great facilities for families including a large kids club, family rooms and family pool in a different location within the resort.

Thank you once again for choosing to stay with Anantara. I personally look forward to an opportunity to welcome you back again soon!

Sincerely,

Dylan Counsel

The hotel was beautiful and the service was superb but the hotel was quite old and a far away from everything. The room we got faced the pool and partially some ocean so it didn't give us that feeling of privacy. The beach wasn't good for offshore swimming so you have to go elsewhere but the hotel provided enough activities like kayaking and other sports to keep us occupied. The food was good tho the price is what you expect to pay for 5 stars resort. However, the island tour was a total ripped off. If the hotel decide to use outsource, at least don't charge us as much. We took an island tour for 2 spots, which costed us 5000 baht from 9:30am - 2pm. It was supposed to be a private trip which I thought it could be nice and romantic. We got an old long-tailed boat, which is quite slow. The first stop was the emerald cape, which the guide led us in, but we had to park the boat quite far coz there were other group tour. The second stop was by Kradan island for snorkeling. The snorkeling equipment was old, and no fin for us to use for snorkel. There was no guiding where to look for the fish or the coral. They just stopped and let us go play by ourself which I wasn't happy about it. Then they dropped us off at other resort for lunch at our own cost. This wasn't what I expect to get from 5 stars hotel island hopping tour. They really need to improve on this if they want to use outsource, they should go and experience this by themselves before offering this kind of services to the guests to see whether it is worth spending. The hotel should provide the island hopping on its own for quality control. One more thing, I believe the hotel has a beach club on Kradan Island, but forgot to mention to the guests that it will be closed from when to when. So we were stuck on the unpleasant beach that filled with shells and unclear water. Transportation was also quite expensive for round trip from hotel to the airport. We asked the hotel to drop us off near by beach for local seafood which is probably 2-3 km away and they wanna charge us 500 baht. We ended up got a restaurant came to pick us up instead.

Room Tip: Ask for lower floor with terrace facing the ocean. Less noisy from the kids screaming at the pool.

Dear Guest,

I would like to personally thank you for taking the time to review our hotel.

Thank you for your positive comments regarding the hotel appearance, food quality and overall service levels.

I understand your disappointment with our island tour. I would like to offer an apology for not been able to meet expectations on this occasion. As a result of your feedback we have reviewed the use of outsourced boats and have looked at ways to improve the services of outside providers to ensure value for money and satisfaction of guests are met when partaking in an boat trip.

For other Trip Advisor readers, we do offer both options for Long Tail and Speed boat use with guides and inclusive of lunch if the customer wishes to purchase this option. Our beach club is open seasonally from October 20th - April 20th.

To the author of this review, I appreciate your constructive feedback. We are grateful for all feedback, even if it is of a critical nature, as this is the only way we can truly assess our guests’ needs, and continuously improve the luxury service we aim to provide.

Once again, thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us.

Sincerely,

Dylan Counsel

I would say this hotel might be the most valuable 5-star hotel in Thailand that offer most spectacular seaview in front of your room (Deluxe seaview room). At this price, you would hardly find a better seaview from any hotel in Thailand. Highly recommend for spending a chilling holiday here.
Breakfast is great with variety of international food. However, less selection for lunch and dinner, though they have Thai restaurant and Italian restaurant, but unfortunately not so many selection of dishes in the menu if they can improve the selection of menu in both restaurants, this would be more than perfect. Service and staff are very nice and friendly. Deluxe seaview room is great and smell so good with the aroma ador, we're impressed with the spa shower gel, spa lotion and spa shampoo provided they smell really nice. The adult pool is quiet and private. I found this hotel is good for everyone, couple, friends, family with kids (large kid's club with lots of good quality toys), just choose the right time, the right room type and room location to suit your needs. Your stay will be happily perfect.

Room Tip: Deluxe seaview on 2nd or 3rd floor for most stunning seaview, without coconut tree in front, choose...

…..but credit should be given when credit is due!

What a lovely and peaceful place to “get away”. Came down one week after Songkran and had a magnificent stay, which was extended to twice the length because we enjoyed ourselves so much.

The hotel had three restaurants and we tried them all, and was not disappointed. Very good food, from “Fine Dining” to traditional Thai-food. Recommend club sandwich for lunch. There is a Car Park is needed. They had an own diving center, a kids pool, a normal pool and a big “No children under 12 years”-pool (which I must say I really enjoyed!). Lots of free stuff to do like mini golf, volleyball and football. Also tried the Spa and it's was very professional and good. Last, but not least, a stunning scenery to look at and one of the most beautiful sunsets I have seen in Thailand.

Friendly and service-mined staff, and I must say there were a lot for European English speaking staff as well as local staff (some spoke very good English). There was always someone to look after us when we needed it. Thanks to the nice and friendly Indian guy at the hotel (unfortunately I can’t remember his name….) who we always was chatting with. Also a special thanks to the other guy who always was around whenever there was something we needed, had any questions and so on. That guy was never more then 2 minutes away (think his name tag said “Torgrim”). After we have been traveling in Thailand a bit, you learn that not everything will work or run 100% in this country – That’s just the way Thailand is……
So from my perspective what you need is someone that can take charge and help/fix when not everything is 100%, and I must say this guy really came though!

Thanks for making our stay memorable.

I stayed twice during April. Both times equally great! I really enjoyed the remote location and total relaxation in the beautiful surroundings, with my favorite being the adult only swimming pool. It was seldom more than a few guests around the pool. Tried all the restaurants, and the prices are not as expensive as other 5* hotels in Thailand and in my opinion offered great value for money. Staff was tentative and really went out of their way to ensure I had a great stay. Will hopefully be back later this year. Thank you Anantara Si Kao!

Even though i am Thai and have traveled to many part of the country i must say that this has been my favorite vacation spot. My room had a terrace that opened out to the beach and both the sand and the ocean were spotless. The service was friendly and attentive and i hope that i will have the chance to visit again soon.
I would like to personally thank GM. Dylan and all the staff for making my stay very memorable.
