We stayed in this hotel ... one of three for our honeymoon ... after reading the excellent reviews on TripAdvisor. Honestly, this hotel isn't a great resort. On an international scale, I'd rate it as maybe 3 1/2 stars. Our room, a Anantara Pool Villa, was quite disappointing compared to the photographs on the hotel website. The rooms were probably...

Dear ctraveller80, I am sorry to hear that you feel our current TripAdvisor ranking is not deserved and that we haven't been able to meet your expectations. This shouldn't be an excuse, but I have to mention that during your stay Samui experienced some extremely hard rainfalls and storms, which cut off the electricity on the entire island several times...

From the moment we arrived, service was excellent. Check-in was easy and the cool refreshing drink and cool towel was most welcome and very much appreciated.

I will keep this short and sweet. I am 23 and my partner 22! This is the best hotel I have ever stayed in, in my life! By far the best on the island. 5 mins from the main town but far enough to still be excluded. The rooms are beautiful and the maids are excellent. Coming from the hustle... More

We stayed here at the start of September and couldn't have hoped for a better experience.
