This was my fourth stay at the Anantara Lawana which should probably tell you all you need to know. It's become something of a home away from and I've never stayed anywhere in which I've been made to feel so special and have felt spoilt and well looked after. This property and, in particular its staff, is a gem.
Oh, and just in case you think there could be a sense of bias here, let me flag-up a couple of things:
The hotel isn't great at early check-ins. This is not a criticism - it's clearly stated when you book and, at the the end of the day, it has a business to run, so just be prepared that should you arrive early you may have to wait. Having said that, in my experience the staff do everything they can to minimise waits and to be as helpful and charming as always.
And, sadly, this isn't the ideal property if you're lacking in mobility as there are a number of steps and sloped walks to reach the beach/pool, beach bar and Ocean Kiss restaurant (one of the best hotel breakfasts you're likely to find anywhere). The hotel does, however, have buggies.
