“Wonderful Beach Holiday”
Reviewed 17 January 2014

The resort is very well designed. Its huge. The resort is maintained very well. The staff is friendly and polite. The service is very good. The rooms are aesthetically designed. I stayed in "Deluxe Plunge Pool room". Its perfect for couples . The plunge pool is very well maintained.
The beach is picturesque. The sight of emerald green waters is soothing. Its serene and calm and a great place for someone looking for a relaxation holiday. A great place for honeymooners too.
The concept of tree top restaurant is amazing. But i guess the hotel should be flexible in providing ala carte menu ( they have set menu only).

Room Tip: If you are staying with children then choose a room close to the beach area as the resort is huge an...

Dear KanakKabra,

We are glad to hear that you enjoyed our resort and beach and had a wonderful beach holiday.

Tree Tops is actually offering a la carte dining on all nights except during special events like New Years Eve, Christmas or Valentine’s day when we have to ensure that with the high demand our kitchen is running on the usual high standards.

Hopefully we have the opportunity to welcome you back and pamper you with our a la carte menu at Tree Tops.

With kind regards

This is truly a five star hotel, the service is exceptional, the staff are beautiful people and the food is amazing. We are vegans and we have had plenty to eat every day.

The rooms are nice, and we stayed in the plunge pool room which is awesome. The fitness room is also well stocked with drinks, towels, etc which is great

Would definitely come here again. We stayed for 7 days and each day was phenomenal.

My husband and I just finished a 5 night stay at the resort in a plunge pool room (room 513). We have travelled overseas a number of times and this is by far the best service we have ever received. All staff were absolutely amazing- friendly, happy and would do anything to help. Our room was clean, well furnished, maintained to a high standard, private and the plunge pool was a delight. The breakfast was always something we looked forward too with a huge variety of hot and cold, savory and sweet options in buffet style, with something for everyone. We ordered room service a few times with great quality food and quick service with a smile. During our stay we had a few visits to the day spa which we both loved as they were friendly attentive and professional. The reception staff helped us to book a number of activities around the island during our stay which was so helpful and easy for us. We both did a cooking class at the resort which we thoroughly enjoyed. Our chef ( chicken) took us to the markets and then lead us in cooking a 5 course meal which we got to indulge in and loved! On our last night we got the chance to take part in a cocktail party talking casually to the general manager and many staff. All who were so eager to hear feedback and lovely to talk to and have a joke with. Overall we can not fault one single thing with this resort and its staff, we will definitely be back in the future and recommend it too anyone visiting koh samui.

We stayed here for two nights during our honeymoon. The check in process was a little longer than we would have liked but the surroundings made up for it. We signed up for the full moon party excursion which worked out perfectly and was a great experience. The breakfast as this resort was amazing, such a wide variety and great quality. I really enjoyed the fresh juices. Our room had it's own pool and was nice, the sheets seemed a bit damp/musty though. We would have liked to stay longer at this resort and I would recommended for a nice relaxing vacation. There's a 7-11 right across the street which is great for snacks, drinks and data cards. Watch out for the large snails!

Dear KristenFCanada,

We appreciate the time you have taken sharing your compliments here on TripAdvisor. My apology that the check in has taken slightly longer which potentially was caused due to a large number of guest inquiries at that time, but I am confident that my team has done their best to make you feel comfortable and relaxed during the waiting time.

Thank you as well for your advice on the large snails! I am sure that other travelers will appreciate being warned of those sneaky animals that are sometimes rushing over our walkways without looking left or right.

Hopefully we will be able to welcome you or your friends from Toronto again to our resort.

With kind regards

A gorgeous resort, stayed here for our anniversary post new years. Booked into a plunge pool villa. The resort is split into two, with a main road separating the two parts. We stayed on the beach front part which mainly houses the villas. The villa itself was good, a new plunge pool (3m x 3m) with direct access from the outdoor seating area and from the bathroom. The room itself is fairly tight for two people and a baby. The shower and WC are semi open (covered from view but not from the elements/bugs). Buggies are available through the resort to get you around if you need them.

For travelling with a baby it can get a bit difficult as the resort is somewhat uneven with a lot of stairs to get to and from the beach and the main restaurants and bar. Views are incredible from the restaurant, good beach - excellent service however the sand really isnt as smooth as you would expect. Clean private beach with a good number of loungers and lounge beds. Service available by just ringing your bell.

The resort is away from all the hustle of chewang beach, its a 5-7 minute drive to main parts of the beach road. The airport is a 5 minute drive in the opposite direction.After a hectic new year this was the perfect down time.

Staff were excellent, especially Pla how was constantly fussing over our little one, had dinner in tree tops which was excellent. The staff are a true asset to this hotel.

thanks for a memorable stay!

Room Tip: book the villas as they are closer to beach and main resort facilities.

Dear Rahul A,

Thank you very much for staying with us and posting your compliments here on TripAdvisor. We are glad to hear that you felt looked after well and your family had a fantastic time with us.

The main road you are referring to separating our resort is actually a walkway within the resort… just to avoid misinterpretations by other guests.

We will pass your compliments to Khun Pla and the rest of the team and looking forward welcoming you back hopefully soon.

Really great choice to spend our time on Chaweng. We chose Anantara Lawana for our holiday because the references were very good. The resort is located in a very quiet area of Chaweng but it is closed to the center of Chaweng. We came to spend Christmas and New Year´s Eve in Thailand and our stay at Anantara Lawana made it a really memorable time! We stayed there 13 nights and we would like to thank the whole staff who were from the first day to the last very friendly and helpful. We stayed in room 305 with a plunge pool which was very nice and comfortable. The bathroom and the toilet were a great suprise because they were openair :) The staff at pool bar was very friendly. We had our sunbeds ready every morning.
We wold like to thank especially Kate from the Ocean Kiss restaurant who was always smiling as the rest of the staff.
It was a nice activity of the resort that they gave gifts to children of a local school where we as the guests were more than welcome to participate.
NYE celebration was very well prepared with great buffet, nice music and with a charming atmosphere. It was a perfect party!
We also recommend dinner at the Tree Tops restaurant. It was a great experience (especially the option to choose from eight different types of salt). Serving of coctails was unusual aswell. Go for the duck!

Dear Lucia B,

A very Happy New Year again and thank you for staying with us over this special period of the year. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed not only our Festive arrangements but as well participated in our Charity Event for children of the local school. The feedback we received not only from our guests but especially from the children was overwhelming and we will most certainly repeat this on a regular basis.

Once again Thank You on behalf of the entire team (and Kate) and we are looking forward welcoming you back.

Anantara Lawana ( Chaweng)is the most beautiful hotel in Samui. As a professional travel agent and tour guide I already travel around 56 countries and stayed in so many resorts and hotels.,... but heaven is this one. Professionalism, sympathy, beauty, surprising and all the best adjectives of the world. Great staff, great director Lars. Since my arrival in the airport, the check-in, the room ( stayed in a poll villa and recommend), reservations for dinners, imagine even help to negotiate the price for taxis!!! Ih! Ih!, the lovely breakfast, the service in the beach and in the swimming pool, the tree Tops restaurant... UAU!!!
So, definitely I will return, I advise who is reading this to go there.
Thank you to Took ( from reception), Lars and all the staff. Hope to be there this year.

Dear paprica77,

Thank you very much for your warm words of appreciation and encouragement which were especially delightful in consideration of the review I had to respond to just before this one from another user. 

Receiving such compliments especially from a Travel professional like you are is even more rewarding and I will ensure that it will be shared amongst the team, including Khun Took which is just about to receive her first baby and will return again in March.

Feel free getting in touch with me directly for your upcoming travel.
