My husband and I stayed at the Anantara Lawana for the second week of our three week honeymoon in Thailand and our experience overall was mixed. On our hotel booking it had said that we were guaranteed an upgrade to a plunge pool room on arrival as we were on honeymoon... but it seems that this is subject to availability... More

The staff here were amazing - This was our first rip to Koh Samui and we treated ourselves to a Sea view pool villa. The room was lovely although it did need some minor maintenance to bring it up to the perfect 5 star standard. We lived in our pool and got room service several times. On our final night... More

We stayed in their pool villa and did not have a chance to see the city as were in the pool for the entire 4 days there!

We stayed here for four absolutely wonderful days in July 2011. First impressions were excellent - the lobby looks very nice indeed - in fact, the resort in its entirety is very well kept. The room was extremely comfortable, although the shower was rather lacking in power. However, the huge bath next to it was a joy to bathe in.... More

Anantara turned out be a very expensive experience. We had booked a Plunge Pool Room. Don't book this room. “A palatial 91 square metres of space” is what the hotel website says about them, but unfortunately this is mostly the bathroom, pool and “living area” - actually an open-air verandah next to the plunge pool, with floor cushions for a...
