“A holiday in paradise”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

The whole family enjoyed the stay at Anantara Rasananda very much. We stayed in a garden pool suite and enjoyed the privacy of our own plunge pool, tropical garden and tastefully furnished rooms. The staff was super friendly and they went the extra mile with pleasure. We had our fresh coconut cocktail at the bar inside the pool and dinner in the restaurant with our feet in the sand. The food was lovely and the breakfast buffet had absolutely everything from spicy Thai curry to Bircher Muesli.
The sea was warm and calm so that the kids could swim, snorkel and play in the sand all day. We enjoyed the gym, massages and scuba diving but mainly relaxing and reading with the palm trees shading us from too much sun. The little village behind the hotel is picturesque and lovely for an evening stroll. A special highlight was a Thai cooking class and food carving course with chef Don and chef Jack. I can spoil my friends with some lovely Thai food now! A holiday in paradise – absolutely recommendable!

Very nice and charming hotel, nice staff very friendly and helpful. Nice entertainment program in the evenings and good excursions offered around the island or other islands! Stayed there with 3 children, they loved it too.

As a regular visitor to Koh Samui, this time we thought we would venture further and visit Koh Phangan - what an experience! Koh Phangan is comparatively less developed than most destinations in Thailand but Anantara blend perfectly this sense of exploration with luxury. Anantara Rasananda is great. It's a luxury resort offering a really authentic island get-away experience. Perfect. We stayed in a beautiful Villa but noted these are available beachfront also which I would upgrade to next time. The Anantara welcome and service is always appreciated and the Koh Phangan Anantara hotel delivered it perfectly.

The Spa was a massive wow. Never seen one so beautiful as this.

It's without question the best place to stay on Koh Phangan.

Room Tip: Go for beach front villa, it's worth the surcharge....

My husband and I recently spent four nights of our honeymoon at the Anantara Rasananda Resort & Spa in Koh Phangan and had a wonderful time. Our accommodation was very nice with a private pool and Apple TV. The staff really made our stay worthwhile ensuring we had a relaxing and comfortable stay. Special mentions go to Nui, our regular waitress and Sam, our tour guide on a couple of trips out of the resort. The food, with a different theme each night, was fantastic and a real highlight. I would highly recommend the Anantara Rasananda Resort & Spa to anybody holidaying in Koh Phangan.

I loved everything about this hotel. The staff are so professional and friendly. The boat transfer from Koh Samui is pricey...but efficient and comfortable. The food is excellent in the hotel and in my opinion the breakfast was the best we experienced in all the hotels we stayed in on our trip. The Chef Don is very friendly and happy to share his knowledge on the local Thai dishes. I really thought the food was great here and its the first time on our trip that we ate in the hotel every night. The pool, although small is lovely and has a great pool bar. The cocktails are amazing ...nothing like a nice cocktail in the swim up bar at 5 o clock for happy hour!!! The beach was beautiful and here at Anantara you have the best spot on the beach. Some other luxury hotels also share the beach but Anantara has the best spot. Each villa has a reserved beach bed on the beach and even if your room is not ocean facing you are literally 30 seconds walk to the beach. The beach staff are great also and special shout to our friend Jackson who was super friendly and lovely to have a chat with each day!! If you are looking to book a luxury hotel or splash out on koh phangan....this is the place. The Panviman is right at the end of the beach and the Buri Rasa is right next to the Anantara. The Anantara is certainly a step up from both hotels based on my observations. There was also some entertainment in the hotel while we were there after dinner. The beach is absolutely fabulous here for swimming and its so clean -unlike other beaches we came across. a great hotel, very well managed with friendly and efficient staff. Dont hesitate ....fabulous!

Room Tip: an ocean facing room is obviously amazing but if your budget doesnt stretch that far, you are litera...

The Anantara Rasananara has the ability to mix a casual and relaxed style with fantastic food and staff. We stayed in an Ocean Garden Pool Suite for 9 nights, which was perfect. The private transfer was fantastic as we arrived after dark into Samui airport. Landing on the beach in front of the resort was so relaxing and started our stay off the right way. The resort has a small village with in a very short walk where you are able to find most things. Overall our stay has been first class and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to friends and family.

Room Tip: We loved having a plunge pool right on the beach - we stayed in a Ocean Garden Pool Suite, number 38...

Stayed at this cute resort for 3 nights and was very happy with the facilities and the service. From pick up at the hotel in Koh Samui to the speed boat to the welcome all was arranged properly.

I had a room on the ground floor with a private pool and garden. The room was well appointed and was very comfortable. Minibar price was reasonable and the room was extremely clean.

Breakfast in the hotel was great - a lot of freshly cooked food. The beach was first rated - so calm and clean and no rush to get a sun lounger. Had few drink and food at the hotel and the quality as well as service was excellent. Spa was also top quality.

Overall an excellent retreat - will definitely go back soon!
