“Couldn't have chosen better”
Reviewed 13 April 2014 via mobile

We have just returned from a 10 night stay at the Anantara which is quite possibly one of the nicest hotels I've ever visited! The 'associates' are the most helpful, polite and genuine hotel staff I've ever met and I couldn't fault anything at all at the hotel! On arrival at night, the entrance was lit up with fairy lights and the complimentary drink and cold flannel couldn't have been more welcoming after 16 hours of travel! We upgraded to a pool room which shares a private pool with 3 others and has an 'outside' shower, the air conditioning was great as April is the hottest month! Service was fantastic with big fluffy towels, slippers and robes and little extra gestures that made it extra special, the temperature for the next day and wishes of sweet dreams left for you each evening as part of the turn down. Food was excellent, we had booked bed and breakfast, which ranged from continental, full English to Thai and much more. We had dinner in the Ocean Kiss restaurant on two occasions and food was delicious and reasonably priced, but there are so many great eateries in Fisherman's Village and around that we went out most evenings to try the local catch of the day or Thai specialities! The Hotel is about a 15 minutes walk from the main strip of Cheweng, which was fab for us as it's a little too lively to stay in! I much preferred Fisherman's Village which has a great street market on Fridays and great restaurants! The Hotel Spa is more expensive than the local massage places but has more of a Spa ambience, however the local massages are just as good and much cheaper. The 'public' pool is lovely with a view of the beach and pool service and we went down there most afternoons to catch the last of the sun! I really haven't got anything negative to say about the Anantara, I'd go back in a heartbeat!!

My husband and I stayed here for the first part of our honeymoon and we wish now we spent the entire trip there. The people, food, accommodation everything about the place was amazing. The tree top dining was a once in a lifetime experience. The spa was fantastic we really did feel like royalty the entire trip I would go back in the blink of an eye. We were the first to try the camp fire dinner, sitting on bean bags on the beach front cooking meat on the fire was amazing and an experience that we have never had anywhere and one we could never have at home. It's not only amazing for honeymooners but families too whatever holiday you are seeking the staff go to every effort to make it happen. I can't say enough how fantastic our trip was. We will always cherish the memories from this holiday and the people and friends we made.

Dear Melindah7,

Congratulations again for your recent wedding. I’m glad to hear that we have been able to add a special touch to your honeymoon experience.

Thank you for sharing your feedback here and pointing out as well that the beachside camp fire experience that we have just introduced recently was such a wonderful experience for you. We always strive coming up with new ideas how to add the extra special touch to a vacation and it is certainly very encouraging to hear when we succeeded.

My team and I are looking forward welcoming you back to Samui hopefully soon.

With kind regards

Anantara Lawana is my most favorite resort at all time in Koh Samui! All staff are just fantastic, friendly with great service mind. Private Pool Villa is amazing and is a top choice if you are looking for tranquil and relaxing place to be, nice privacy for your little fun time.

Breakfast at Ocean Kiss is awesome with nice varieties, certainly focusing on the good quality and not the quantity. Stunning view of the morning ocean with a good cup of coffee. Do not miss out the fresh fruit juice which offer when you enter to the restaurant as it is so refreshing to start your day!

Dinner at Tree Top is a must to try!! With its unique set up and romantic atmosphere (if you are not a couple, you can still go solo, with family or with your friends to enjoy this amazing place! The staff there are great to take care of you!). My favorite dishes are Wagyu beef tenderloin and Veal cheeks. They are soooo good especially with the recommendation of the Salt Guru! (who would have thought that different kind of salts would give an extra kick to the taste for each different dish!). Hint: do not eat too many homemade bread that they serve on the table while waiting for your dishes coz you will not be able to stop!

Can't wait to be back there again! :)

I expected myself to be surprised on the experience of the proeprty esp after having so many good reviews of the Property. First the Goods Parts : Good Beach, Good pool view, nice service at the beach area, nice morning breakfast with good attending staffs, nice library area with computers having internet and a coffee making machine (complementary), Five minutes ride to market area (walkable once....other times you wish to take taxi at 200 THB one way).
Turn Offs: Wifi free only for 30 minutes per day and the speed was pathetic, hot water takes so long to come (if it does) that you are forced to take shower with cold water, expected room service to be a little quicker

Dear PrashantBh,

Thank you for all the positive comments as well as the feedback on areas on which we could improve.

As previously mentioned, the internet will be provided for free very shortly so all our guests can enjoy free internet.
My apology if the water heater did not work quick enough but I would have wished hearing about this challenge during your stay so my Engineering team could have fixed this easily.

We hope being able to serve you again in the future.

With kind regards

We stayed 3 nights here in mid March in the entry level villa and thought it was fantastic. Beautiful rooms with a nice balcony, comfortable beds, gorgeous turndown (I never through mosquito netting over beds could look romantic, but they've managed it here!), and wonderful polite and helpful staff. Pool and beach area very nice with ample sun umbrellas and bar service.

We stayed here at the recommendation of a friend and will return once our budget permits another extravagance :)

Stayed in pool villa 224 which was wonderful, really large pool (shared by 4 other villas only) The level of service really was superb, nothing was ever to much trouble. Most people spoke very good english including room maids. Breakfasts were excellent The whole place was kept spotless. Plenty of sunloungers around pool area and on beach including double bed type ones. Free cold flannels, lollipops and fruit given out while around pool or on beach.Waiter service is even provided on the beach.
My only moans are we only had 30 minutes of free wifi in our room a day which at this level of hotel is very poor. Although a nice infinity pool there were only ladders to get in and out and it was noted that some people found it hard to get in and out of pool, in this day and age there should be steps and hand rail provided. If after a hard day around pool you dont want to walk far for a meal Anongs restaurant oppisite hotel is good value for money.

Room Tip: Be aware this hotel is on a steep hill and is spread over a large area so if you have severe walking...

Dear thothmosis,

First of all the good news… we are in the process of providing free internet for all room types and the system setup should be finalized shortly.

I’m glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay that much and happy to share that our OceanKiss provides as well very good Thai food and is even closer to our pool than the restaurant across the street.

Looking forward having you back soon hopefully.
