I have never written a review before but I certainly read them. I read them to the extent that a week before our trip to Thailand I was so concerned by some of the reviews of the hotel I wished to change to another hotel. Thank goodness we couldn't.
Having travelled a lot in Thailand before this hotel retains real Thai charm that you just don't get in other hotels. The grounds are beautiful, the pool very clean and sun loungers always available (even at peak times). The staff were great and the breakfast had much more choice than we expected. The rooms could be bigger and perhaps have a bit of an update but that doesn't take away from the fantastic views (we stayed in a delux sea view- room 302 is very near the front so the view was amazing) and little touches that make your stay unique. I haven't stayed in a hotel where the manager holds a drinks and canapes evening for all guests in the grounds making for a pleasant start to an evening and genuinely makes you feel that the company is grateful for your business.
Nearby Fishermans village was fantastic- great reasonable restaurants. Don't miss the Friday night market. Anantara is literally 5 mins away so you can also pop over for lunch.
Yes drinks around the pool are expensive (unless you get them in happy hour) but I'm not sure what people expect from a 5 star hotel- its the same anywhere you stay around the world. Yes there are mosquitos, its a tropical country- just buy jungle spray before you go.
My only regret is that I would like to have stayed longer than the week we did.
