We stayed at the Anantara Lawana for Christmas 2013 for 10 nights, and were thrilled with our stay there. Firstly, it has to be said that the staff, all of the staff, are absolutely amazing. They make you feel so welcome and are great with the children. Thank you for making us feel so welcome and looked after. The hotel... More

Anantara Hotels experience is simply beyond expectations. There is no single other hotel chain that offers such warm hospitality and attention to details. From gardener to general manager, passing by bell boys, concierges, front desk, the hearth on the hand is truly more than words can tell. Again here at Anantara Lawana I was treated more than a simple guest.... More

We stay at Anantara for 7 nights at the end of November and we were deeply disappointed by the state of the hotel, especially the room (we stayed in a plunge pool room). The curtains in the bathroom were filthy and full of mold and so were the wind covers from outside area (as you can see from the pictures).... More

The hotel is really pleasant, the staff incredibly friendly, the pool and beach very relaxing. The only mishap is with the Tree Tops restaurant: when you have such a raved about restaurant that has only 8 tables and your hotel is fully-booked, my humble opinion is that you should reserve it, at least with highest priority, to your in-house guests....

Our family has just returned from a 10 day vacation at the Anantara and we all agreed it was amazing! The staff are wonderful and everyone is very friendly and helpful.
