We came here for our honeymoon and it was amazing. We stayed in the ocean front room and we literally had a private beach at our front door. It also had a private plunge pool and cabana for us to enjoy that was part of our room! Breakfast is included, and i have to say it is absolute AMAZING! From traditional dishes, freshly squeezed juices to pastries my mouth is watering just remembering it! The island is secluded and the best part of the resort is the little village right behind it! We went to Tannaporn daily for massages (its like $20 for 2 people!!) and enjoyed all the restaurants in that little town for dinner. Everyone is so friendly and helpful (unlike what we experience in Bangkok) All in all this is an amazing dream vacation and we cannot WAIT to go back!

This property was beautiful. If you can splurge and get the ocean garden pool villa -do it. Nothing like sitting on your own day bed or taking a dip in your private pool located less than 100 feet from the waves of the Gulf of Thailand. The weather wast not ideal during our visit, cloudy with high winds and rough water. But that didn't take away from the beauty of this place.

We had a long day trip around the island one day and came back to our room exhausted and hungry. After enjoying a nap on our beach bed we decided to just hang at the hotel or dinner- which is rare for us. We typically venture outside of the resort for our meals other than breakfast but we are so glad we stayed at the Anantara. The restaurant was fab. Yes it is pricier than the local joints in the area but it wasn't outrageous and it was well worth it. Hands down the best meal we've had during our 3 week trip thru Thailand. Our waiter Goal was great and helped make our experience even better. My husband had the chorizo risotto and I had the chicken satay, both were great with lots of flavor. We also started with a Cesar salad to split, we should've ordered two- I loved it. The best part of course was dessert. He ordered the brownie ala mode and I had the "banana" which was chocolate covered bananas with peanut butter ice cream and crushed peanuts. Wow!! All of this plus 2 glasses of a great Malbec all for less than 3000 baht. I'd do it again tonight if we weren't leaving.

One complaint, which almost changed my review from a 5 to a 4, was the loud hammering outside our villa (#1) this morning at 630am. I got in my robe to see what the noise was all about and there was some guy in a tree in the pool area axing down some branches. Seriously?! At 630am?? Not an ideal way to wake up on your vacation. It continued for about 30 minutes.

One tip- if you get and ocean garden pool villa, request to be in any villa other than #1. I say this because we are on our honeymoon and stayed in #1 which is not so conveniently located on the otherwise of a very thin fence from the kids sand box. Not ideal for honeymooners or anyone else staying without kids.

Regardless, we had a great stay and would definitely recommend the resort to a friend staying on the island.

As a treat at the end of our holiday we booked two nights at Anantara - whilst the price tag is quite large compared to what you can pay in Thailand it was worth every single penny! After a trip down a (very) bumpy road we arrived in what can only be described as paradise. The resort itself is not huge, everything is nicely spread out and the service is incredible. We opted for a villa with private plunge pool...defiantely the best room choice of our whole holiday. Anantara has thought of everything and then some...I am reluctant to give too much away as I loved all the little surprises we had during our stay. The food and cocktails were fantastic (we made the most of happy hour) and the beach is the best that we saw in Thailand. The local town has some great little places to eat if you want to do a (tiny) bit of expIoring.I would highly recommend a stay at Anantara - even if it's only for one night.

The bungalows are lovely, The private plunge pools need a better access the steps are huge and their is nothing to hold on when you try to enter or exit the pool.
Do bring plenty of mosquitos repellent.
Overall it is a wonderful relaxing place. Lots of cute restaurant in the little village.

We stayed here mid November for a short period during our honeymoon. The trip from the ferry was quite far and there was a lot of construction, but it was worth it. Immediately you can enjoy the beauty of this place. The grounds are well maintained and the little gardens around are beautiful. We had a room on the 2nd floor facing the beach with a hot tub and it was great. Apple TV is definitely a nice plus. There's a little street just 2 mins away which has shops and restaurants to enjoy. We can't wait to return someday and next time we will definitely stay longer.
