We have just returned from Samui yesterday. We stayed at Anantara Lawana resort for 4 nights. Overall, the resort is nice and our pool access villa is well-designed and beautiful. However, on our last night at the resort, we were invited to the bbq night organised by the hotel. Of which, we paid 1,490 bhats per person exclusive of drinks.... More

We stayed for seven nights at the Anantara Lawana for our honeymoon, we booked a Deluxe plunge pool room and have to say it was amazing.

Recently returned from a 6 night stay at the Anantara Lawana, overall the stay was very good. The pool and the resort are well laid out and spacious enough to feel secluded and relaxing. The hotel is well located as it is far enough away from the main strip of Chaweng to be peaceful but near enough to go in... More

We holidayed with another couple and stayed in the private plunge pool room. We found the staff very friendly and helpful, from the security guard at the front gate to the best housekeeping we have ever experienced in our travels. Pink was just fabulous and to see her lovely smiling face each day was a highlight of our trip. Breakfast... More

Recently stayed at the Anantara Lawana Resort and Spa with my family.
