From beginning to the end all was perfect, the hotel was really excellent and we also had nothing to complain during our stay. All staff were so extremly friendly and we were so sad, that we have to leave. We had a pool villa with sea view and it was amazing. The room service was on a really high five... More

Arriving at Anantara Rasananda by speedboat from Koh Samui was a truly memorable experience. As you round a rocky outcrop, a wide bay comes into view and you pull up at the beach before being welcomed by the amazing staff and made to feel comfortable in a cool space by the pool while you're checked in. Our room (a garden... More

As the boat sweeps into the bay, and the staff congregate on the beach to welcome you, its not the usual Thailand experience. Stepping off the boat onto the beach, you are already without your shoes, you can pretty much leave it like that for the rest of your stay. The resort is in the middle of a long beach,... More

Beautiful, modern hotel on one of the most pristine beaches on the planet. The Anantara takes up a good portion of the beach, right in the center - we hesitated on which hotel to pick in the area but now that we have seen other hotels, this was definitely the best. Food options are great as well, from breakfast to... More

We stayed here for 4 nights and loved every second. First of all its located on the best beach on the island, clean and isolated beach. The resort is beautiful and the beach vilas are a step away from the sea. The rooms are big and designed perfectly. The service is outstanding and all stuff are friendly and helpful. The... More

We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights as a family of 4 with two teenage girls and had two rooms. The hotel is excellent and the staff incredibly helpful.

This resort has two things going for it in a major way - a picture perfect bay and beach and friendly attentive staff. It is more 'resorty' than 'boutiquey' and was overwhelmed with young kids and families when we were there at the start of August. Lots of people seem to go on honeymoon here from other reviews but we... More

We haven't been staying there but my fiancé organized a surprise dinner at the beach (and asked me to marry him there). Everything was perfect, starting from location, decoration, table, intimacy, amazing tasty food, attentive stuff and live guitar music. Will definitely stay there if back to Koh Phangan one day!
