“Great value for a private paradise”
Reviewed 3 September 2012

We have pre-booked Anankhira for 3 nights for middle of our trip. A great decision, although have enjoyed another short stay right on the beach, the quality of this resort was a relief. Starting from a warm personal welcome to gorgeous settings, tastefully designed and well kept villa and friendly helpful staff. Not that we required many additional treats, however any questions or requests we had were fulfilled. One little thing, breakfast options are very limited, which is only an issue as getting to your nearest restaurant or another resort is more than just a walk out of your hut. I would like to see a change in that, but otherwise, i highly recommend this sweet place. Thanks again, Helga

Room Tip: We stayed at Miltonia room which was lovely, really didint need anything different or more.

Nice resort located close to the beach. Good views, good staff, very nice villas (pool, living room and bed). OK value for money.
Best is probably the privacy of the villas and quietness. Worst was breakfast and the three huge geckos living inside the villa with us.
Not paradise but nice for a couple of nights

We recently stayed here as part of our honeymoon, taking up the honeymoon package. It was a fantastic choice.
The villa was stunning,perfectly clean, perfectly sized and had everything we needed. The pool area was great, gorgeous views out to the sea and very private. A fridge was provided with drinks in that were very reasonably priced and also some mosquito repellent spray and candle.
The staff could not be faulted, they were always there when we needed anything,always smiled and made lovely food. we had breakfast every morning and we had an evening meal one night too which was delicious.
They arranged a massage for us and also a manicure.
Quite a few insects and things around, lizards, snake etc but im guessing that you get that everywhere in Thailand.
My only negative is that while it is ideally located, just 5 minutes from beach and 10 minutes from village, getting from the main road to the villa is a bit of a hike in the heat. Lots of steps. So anyone who has walking difficulties might want to think again.
All in all we hada wonderful week!

We are a family of 5 and stayed at Anankhira for 3 nights. We had an extra bed put into one of the two villas and had our 3 girls in one villa and my wife and myself were right next door in the second villa.
The villas are clean and well thought out and would be perfect for 2 couples or better suited to a family of four.The pool was clean and a fantastic place to lounge around in and enjoy the relaxing feel of Anankhira and Koh Tao.
The location is beautiful and private and a short walk to beach and restraunts. We loved our time at Anankira and enjoyed the hospitality.

all who are thinking of going, do it! beautiful!
you will know a paradise angle in balinese style whith very kind people, helping you for every request you have and giving you the true thai smile every morning!
a quiet and peacefull location:
the place is beautiful, located on a hill in the north of the island, near to sairee beach, you can also easily take a taxi boat to nang jouan every day...
you can book everythings from the resort, including thai or relaxing massage in your room
every villa surrounded by beautiful greenery with amazing and refreshing pool, you can't need nothing more for your relaxing holydays, far enough from the high music and the parties in the island... but near to everithings.
thanks to everybody, expecially Kit, so little but so big.
thanks and see you again...

Room Tip: every villas seems ok: you can enjoy the nature and your privacy with every comforts. we stay in ca...

Stayed in Anankhira for five nights recently and absolutely loved it. We arrived there at about 9.30 in the morning and were shown to our villa immediately and invited to come for breakfast after we had showered and freshened up. I was impressed with this as I did not expect breakfast on the morning we arrived. We stayed in Miltonia villa which was beautiful and the pool was quite private during the day. We generally spent a few hours there early in the day and late in the evening, going off to do many fun things around the island in between. The villa itself was stunning (even had a walk in wardrobe which was really nice as you get sick of looking at your open bags sitting at the end of the bed). The outdoor sitting area was just gorgeous with its views down to the sea. We did not eat here in the evenings although we were told that we could order something if we would like to stay there any evening. Yes, the mosquitos are a major issue here I can not lie. But they do everything they can by giving you free bug spray, mosquito nets and mosquito coils. By the very nature of where the villa is positioned (up in the trees) there is no way of avoiding them. It was a short walk to the beach (about 5 mins) and maybe another 5 mins to the action of the village.

Havent written a tripadvisor review before but was moved to by surfing the site and seeing the poor review a couple of reviews down. I have to say that none of the negatives they said we found – in fact the opposite. We stayed there for a week in Cattleya in April and it was a great place to spend some time. Firstly, location. It’s a 10 minute walk from the centre of Sairee village which means you are on hand for the bars, restaurants, shops but you can actually sleep at night!

The villa itself is charming; very rustic and built in sympathy with the environment around it. It’s a small resort (I think 4 or 5 villas). Other than the villas there is a nice breakfast area (breakfast included) where you can have breakfast or have it delivered to your villa if you prefer. The villa itself has your own pool, an outside ‘cabana’ style lounge area (covered with open sides) with sofa, cable TV, DVD player and library all provided, leading off to the private pool. The bathroom area / bedroom are in a separate indoor air conditioned building adjacent to the pool. Everything was spotlessly cleaned inside and out, serviced every day including the pool. There is a well stocked, good sized (and cheap!) mini bar and the staff will stock this with whatever you need. The bedroom is a good size, king size bed, with a stunning full glass front view over the private pool, the forest and out to sea. If you want a small friendly personal resort with fantastic staff – thanks, Kit & team! This is the place for you. This does not claim to be a sprawling 5 Star resort compound, you wont find acres of marble and gold taps; it isn’t and for me that’s a compliment. Its also great value – where else in Asia can you get a private pool villa for under £100 a night with breakfast, free taxi from the ferry, with such fantastic facilities and within walking distance of all the amenities of somewhere as lovely as Sairee Beach?

Anankhira is perfect if you want to just spend time ‘away from it all’ in your own villa or use a base for Sairee beach or exploring the island. Highly recommended

Room Tip: Can recommend Cattleya as thats the one we stayed in. Great views

Thank you so much for your review and in particular for putting the record straight regarding the unpleasant and untruthful review entitled "Disappointing Needs Major .."

We love our resort and have fantastic staff who take great pride in their work so it is just great to know that our customers really appreciate all our the work that goes into making this an unique resort. We offer a small and intimate experience for the more discerning traveller who prefers the privacy and tranquility that Anankhira can offer.

I hoe you will come back and visit us again soon.
