Peace Resort or Bandara or even Anantara

Hi all,

As the price for staying at either of the first two is pretty similar, can anyone suggest a preferance between the two, or is it worth paying the extra to stay at Anantara. How do they all compare? Does anyone know what the beach is like at Bophut. ?? thanks

Rhondda, United...

currently staying at the bandara, excellent hotel.

anantara is next door and is just a 5 minute walk into the village.

so both are in excellent locations.

beach has coarse sand which is not much trouble really.

cant fault the bandara, dont really know about the anantara.

Have stayed at Peace Resort.

Our ocean front bungalow was clean and cozy. The resort has a decent swimming pool, and a restaurant by the beach.

However, I think that the resort is 2 or 3 star at most. The resort is run by a family so that the management team consisted of family members. There is no professional management and service in the resort. They use cheap materials everywhere in the resort.

Have visited Bandara and Anantara. Both are beautiful 4 ~ 5 star hotels and have very beautiful swimming pools, and the management and service seem professional.

Bophut beach is nice, and the scenery from the beach is beautiful, but the water is not clear and muddy on the bottom.

The sand of Bophut beach is nice and soft, but it was not easy for us to walk along beach to Fisherman Village because our feet sank into the sand when walking, and it was not pleasant to walk along a busy main road to go to Fisherman Village.

Bandara and Anatara are located next to Fisherman Village so that the distance of walking along beach to Fisherman Village is minimum and not the problem.
