We stayed at the hotel for our honeymoon and quite frankly the experience was a lot better than what we had expected. Right from we received a warm welcome at the hotel until our departure, the trip was very good. Rooms were clean, service was prompt, food was good as well.

This hotel is gorgeous, I loved staying here. It's looks great, has great facilities, everyone was very polite. The room was really nice, the area is great, there's a beach near the pool that is great to be around but not great to swim in because of the rocks. The bathroom was outdoors and it could get muggy there if... More

Service was excellent, staff was sincere, helpful, friendly, prompt and attentive. Villas with shared swimming pool were worth every Bhat! Amazing open-air showers, large soaking tubs, comfy king bed, local design and decor - and the best part was of course the Sala. Breakfast had a variety of options and served on the waterfront terrace. Infinity swimming pool overlooking the... More

Anantara is gorgeous. I absolutely loved it. Hubby and I checked into the plunge pool deluxe room and although the water is a little cold, it was very clean and very private. There is an impressive selection of coffee and tea as well. The beach is very clean and nice, but the sand was coarse. There were also not enough... More

We stayed in the Anantara Lawana over Christmas and New Year. This is a lovely hotel in a great location and the friendliness and attentiveness of the staff, who did everything with a smile, made for a fantastic holiday.

Being a regular user of Tripadvisor before booking hotels, I struggled to find information about the Anantara Lawana so will make this review informative in case anyone else is researching. From our experience (we were there over Christmas), there were a few problems. Negatives: - Definitely not a 5* hotel in terms of the actual building. It's lovely, but not... More
