In a nutshell - our stay was fantastic and there is nothing to complain about.

It started with perfectly organised pick-up at Samui airport, transferred to the lounge with small beach at the sea to wait for the speedboat to bring you to Koh Phangan.
Drinks and WiFi complementary at lounge.

The hotel itself is a very nice resort with more or less private beach. Even technically it is not, it felt like it is only for you and the resort guests.

We had a pool suite which is located on the first floor.
Very spacious room with AC, TV, AppleTV with several movies, minbar, coffee.machine and separate couch.
The bathroom with rain-shower has as well access to the deck with pool.
The pool is what you should expect, a bigger bathtub/jacuzzi (1,5x2,5m).

There is a main pool in U-form courtyard, which we never used, as the beach is directly to it.

The restaurant is not cheap, but excellent. Thai and international cuisine.
Every night is a special, which is from suf&turf, steak-night, texMex or creating your own wok dish from a buffet of various ingredients.
Breakfast is marvellous. Anything you want is there.

The Spa is also very good, but has its price.

Most remarkably is the friendly stuff. From the heart they are concerned about you well being.
Never experienced that level of service.

Last remarks:
As stated in my review, be aware that dining (European prices) and Spa in the resort is not cheap compared to prices you might be used from Thailand, but be insured that you get excellent service/food in return.
Keep that in mind when booking.
There are other restaurants up the beach in the little village to the hotel which for sure can offer cheaper dining. We never tried as we were addicted to the Anantara cusine.

We stayed in October which is not high season and the hotel was not fully booked.
I can imagine that when the hotel is fully booked, it can feel a little crowded and pool and sunchairs will come to its limits.

Room Tip: If you are not booking sea-front view, I would recommend a pool suite (1st floor) rather than a garden-view (Groundfloor). You have you full privacy without anyone looking from above in your pool/garden and you have more sunlight.

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!

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.
