On arrival at most hotels, reception area looks fantastic then things go downhill from there - NOT Anantara. Evening arrival after twelve hour flight. We were greeted with such warmth & friendly smiles by staff - all staff give friendly greetings whether receptionist/gardener/waitress/bartender/bellhop, fresh cold towels & drinks on arrival. We had the Anantara Suite; absolutely HUGE room, impressive huge stone bath, two very well appointed balconies, air con which worked beautifully, we even had a Japanese fighting fish in our room. Bottled water supplied in actual glass bottles to rooms. Read the hotel's own description - true to its word. Beautiful grounds, lovely staff - special thanks to Lilly who waited table at every breakfast & Meow (nickname) one of our maids.

Breakfast are sumptuous, tea & coffe so good (not the usual stewed bitter stuff served at most hotels). Spent an absolutely fabulous eight nights at Anantara with two daughters. This hotel should be a must on everyone's itinerary. I'd dropped my sunglasses from the balcony, miscalculated where they'd dropped - hotel staff sent out what seemed like a search party to find them. On one occasion, I stood in reception sweating buckets (woman of a certain age) receptionist suddenly appeared by my side with a neatly rolled cold, wet towel. Ten out of ten for this hotel!

We didn't use the Spa - hotel, room, staff & grounds provided all the relaxation necessary, maybe next time.

We spent 8 days at the Anantara Bophut with our 6 and 3 year old girls and we had the time of our lives. We arrived at after 18 hrs of travel with two exhausted children (and parents) and greeted with fresh cold flannels, drinks and presents for the girls (who were thrilled!).
We had booked a 2 bed suite and it exceeded my grandest expectations! The rooms were large, luxruious and clean. The girls had a massive bed each in their room and the master had a desk and HUGE ensuite.
The whole resort is clean and beautiful, the staff are just gorgeous - friendly, happy and so accomodating. The location is superb - step away from the swim up bar, and a couple of steps away from the pool and you are on the beach (with massage, hair braiding and pedicures and lovely locals selling hats, sarongs, etc). Just stroll down the beach to get to Fisherman's Village with fabulous markets and a huge selection of restaurants.
The hotel restaurant was delicious and we had breakfast and lunch in the hotel daily, but went out for dinners just to try some different places.
The hotel also had a kids club and advertised each days activites. We let our girls choose if they wanted to go and join in and they loved making necklaces and clay modelling. 3 year old had to have a parent stay.
I had looked forward to this holiday for over six months and thanks to Anantara it was everything I had hoped and more!!!

Room Tip: 2 bed was perfect for families

Loved it, we arrived after travelling for 36 hrs! We were greater at the hotel and taking into a air con room and given drinks and nibbles on arrival and a very welcoming cold flannel.
The breakfasts were fab, the hotel surroundings are beautiful and very well looked after. Every morning a very smiley gardener would be out tending to the shrubs (his smiles made my day every morning!) the room was big and very comfy beds and linen was lovely.
Pool area great, the view from the pool is amazing!!!

The only slight downside for us was the price of food and drink. We would have eaten their more but it was to expensive. Very nice though. A gin and tonic is about £6 at the hotel and £2 in the town! Soon adds up after a couple!!!
We went next door to the left they did really good food and slightly cheaper head into the town their was lovely food their.

Would definitely go again and would recommend.

We spent a week here on our honeymoon and the only way to describe the whole experience is excellent. The staff were fantastic, endlessly attentive and helpful. The food and drinks in the various restaurants were also delicious, we found ourselves eating in the hotel far more than expected and this is something we rarely do - the beach barbeques in particular are well worth it. Lazy days are easily spent by the pool and happy hour each evening is always a welcome moment. When you do want to get out and about, the main town is only a short taxi ride away.

Rooms are very clean, comfortable and well serviced. Looking slightly dated in parts now but you really don't notice it!

We were invited by a friend who is a member of the anantara vacation club to experience the magic of anantara. We came without much expectations but were pleasantly surprised by the high standards of the resort & service.
The resort is in great condition, clean & well maintained. Its location at the beach front is wonderful & within walking distance to the Fisherman's Village where you can find restaurants, little quaint cafes, shops etc. Pool was huge & nice with a pool bar. And the room is comfy, has a large balcony overlooking the sea. Nice...
We were lucky to be there during the King's birthday, the resort had a cocktail reception complimentary to all guests & invited all of us to sing for their King. Its a wonderful & unique experience. A minor setback during our stay; the island had power cut for 2 days so only essential services were allocated electricity supply. The resort GM was quick to act & he literally stood at the hotel foyer to advise guests on the situation. Commendable.
Overall we had a wonderful stay!

Room Tip: If you have the budget & travelling as a couple, get the pool villas. It looks great & faces...

This hotel, although some of the fittings were a bit dated ( soon to be refurbished) had an idyllic setting in beautiful surroundings tended with loving care by several dedicated gardeners. Service was excellent with staff taking a genuine interest in your wellbeing. Choice of a lovely, dreamy infinity pool or the beach just a few steps away. I hope the refurbishment does not take away any of the beautiful gardens. Our only (small) criticism would be that we could hear our neighbours on one side very clearly through the wall, so extra soundproofing would be in order (thankfully they settled quietly at night). Breakfast was of high quality and dinner was also. Prices for evening meals were reasonable (considering the hotel has to add 17% service and VAT charge).

Room Tip: Terrace rooms were superb but a room higher up may have had a bit more light.

Dear valued guests,

Thank you very much for your feedback, and do not worry!!, we will not touch the gardens / public areas during the renovation.
It will mainly concern the rooms (reorganization of the space, upgrade of the facilities), the lobby as well as the breakfast restaurant and the Eclipse Bar.
Please do come & visit us after November to discover the “new” Anantara Bophut!
