Excellent hotel, the atmosphere, the kindness of the staff, the food, the room facilities. Everything was more than words can tell. We can't stop thinking about the day we come again to koh Samui. And when we will, anantara is the only place.

This is a perfect resort, far enough away from the centre of Chaweng to be peaceful but close enough to nip in and enjoy the restaurants, bars, shops etc of an evening. The resort is beautiful and the staff are incredibly warm and attentive. Loved it.

Me and my partner stayed at the Anantara for 7 nights (22-28 August) having spent 3 hectic nights in Bangkok. What a lovely hotel. Check in was smooth (although not sure why they insisted they took a photograph of us both) and we were taken to our room. Wow it was lovely with a large balcony, a massive bath big... More

Dear Fiona470, I’m glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us that much and had a fantastic vacation. We appreciate the time you have taken to share it here on TripAdvisor.

Location is good, but for information, this is the furthest I would be away from the main Chaweng area.There are a couple of cafes and restaurants within walking distance though Chaweng Central/Festival is a bit further. Rooms/buildings are all pretty private and well spaced out. We had a plunge pool and an outside area. They had a bottle and a... More

Dear luke_speedos, Thank you very much for the good rating and your compliments. I’m glad to hear that you enjoyed our facilities and service, even though we are not opposite the Central shopping mall, which many would see rather as an advantage. As we do have a couple of Anantara Resorts across Asia and the Middle East and Africa we... More

We had a great time at this hotel. After an initial issue with the room placement (helped a lot by hotels.com), we were upgraded to a beautiful villa that shared a very large pool with three other villas. You absolutely want to pay the extra money and take the villas with the semi-private larger pools. The grounds are spectacular, lush... More

Dear DaddyAlan, I’m glad to hear that you enjoyed such a wonderful stay in our Pool Access Villas. As usual in the tropics, we have to deal with mosquitoes as well and do our best to prevent them. Unfortunately they seem to like some people more than others, but simple precautions like keeping the doors closed especially during the early... More

Everything was perfect and we enjoyed the stay. Especially to mention is the beautiful breakfast next to the beach. It is very rich and delicious. We also can recommend the barbeque night. Delicious and beautyful because your are sitting on the beach.

We stayed at the Anantara Lawana for 11 nights for our honeymoon in August. Me and my husband both think that the hotel is amazing. The hotel surroundings are beautiful and you tell that they are looked after really well by dedicated staff. We arrived fairly early in the morning and were offered cool towels as it was quite warm... More

This was my first trip to Koh samui, leisure trip with wife and kid.

Yes, comparing to any worldwide beach resort you get here a wonderful one, an AMAZING villa with a private pool and hot tub, lots of comfort and style, in a great price, and a great service.

The Anantara Lawana is head and shoulders above the other hotels along this stretch of beach. It is a large hotel and caters for all kinds of guests; couples, families and singletons.
