Anantara Bophut Koh Samui Resort
Ranked #18 of 185 Hotels in Bophut
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 13, 2013

The first time we stayed at Anantara in Bophut was around 2008, and we have returned every year since to spend our vacation at this lovely place. Arriving at Anantara is a bit like stepping into another world that induces you to just rest and relax. We like Anantara because it is small, peaceful and the staff is very friendly. In terms of our vacation needs Antantara gives us everything we want - good food (excellent breakfast buffet!), romantic atmosphere, a beautiful garden and spa, nice pool and beach where we can laze and read books.
Being returning guests we have had our room category upgraded several times making the experience even better (and of course we keep coming back year after year!). The hotel is located three minutes walk from the small Bophut Fisherman's Village with lots of restaurant choices. We cannot recommend Anantara highly enough, especially for couples.
See you soon again!

Dear Valued guests,

Thank you very much for taking the time to share your experience.

Do not worry, we are not touching the gardens, nor the Spa area
Do drop us a mail when planning your next trip to Samui, we would be delighted to assist you.
We are all looking forward to welcoming you back in our “brand new” Anantara Bophut.

Warm regards,

Nice place well kept clean sanitary good service
2 negatives
Housekeeping is irregular they sometimes clean sometimes don't, provide extra beach towels but not hand wash towels, and come in once in three days and supply the wrong tea when asked for something else
The reception doesn't inform that someone has come to pick you up
Overall good place would love coming back
Also the DVD remote did not have batteries even when asked for

We were lucky enough to spend a bit over a week at the beautiful Anantara Bophut Resort. It was so peaceful, it felt like you were hidden away from the world. The staff were so friendly and so helpful and the grounds were just stunning. Plenty of activities were available at the resort if you were so inclined, but it was made for just laying around, relaxing or going for a dip in their amazing pool.

Rooms were well appointed, clean and so comfortable. The staff did such a beautiful job of keeping the rooms in a lovely clean condition.

The Fisherman's Village was a short stroll from the resort, so there were plenty of restaurants close by and the night markets were really interesting and fun to take a look at.

I would highly recommend Anantara - wish I was there right now!

My Husband and I both are security contractors in different parts the Middle East. WE only see each other a few times a year, so our time is precious. We spent 6 GLORIOUS weeks on Samui, stayed in a beautiful home for the majority of the time, but then extended our stay for ONE more week, in this AMAZING, magical place. From the moment we arrived, we felt so special. The staff was incredibly welcoming and friendly. We stayed in the private beachfront suite. It was our final 7 days together that were most memorable, as we had a few days/nights of rain, which made it so cozy to spend in our beautifully intimate, and cozy suite. The double tub was blissful just to soak in. The library, and bar area has plenty of little nooks for the quiet couple that wants to go unnoticed. The food in every restaurant on the property was excellent..and to explore a bit outside the property, is even amazing, as Fisherman's village offers every type of restaurant and bar imaginable just a short walk down the beach road... Anantara, Koh Samui was outstanding on ALL counts.. The Spa services were some of the best on the island, bar none. This little, special gem, is a MUST visit place..Splurge on yourselves.. you deserve a luxurious, romantic, intimate getaway !

Room Tip: The suites on the beach side with sea view are all beautiful, but also the grounds are incredibly lu...

This property was undergoing much needed renovation when i visited. They have apartments, fully self-contained Villa's with its own Pool, even Beach View Pool villa's.

As with most Anantara resorts, the staff are genuinely amazing, nothings a problem, quietly going about their work at ensuring your stay is memorable.

The Villa' isn't as nice as the new one in Phuket (Mai Khao) but very very nice by any standard. The room has lots of sliding doors and light. A bed so comfortable, i climbed in and drifted away, even during the day :-(

The kitchen was to small for any real family cooking but with so many places to eat out - Why cook. Nearby is Big C, Tesco Cash & carry supermarkets, in case you need to cook.

A totally massive bathroom, complete with indoor & outdoor showers. The in-villa pool is a favourite of mine; from the bathroom, you dive over the sunken couples bath, to exit in the bedroom or cabana area your choice, private to get that all over tan.

The Beach is very closeby, small but exclusive for guests only. Nearby there is the fishermen village walking street, with mini version of Chewang, Restaurants, Bars, Shopping etc. but better value & quality.

One of the undervalued places was the spa, which was being used as reception during renovations, was so nice, i wanted to get a spa service, next time.

Don't forget across the road is Samui Go Cart, which is great prep for driving in Thailand

Room Tip: Choose on of the 1 BR Villa's, after staying in one, its hard to go back to an appartment.

This was our 2nd visit to the hotel and again lovely resort & great staff. We travelled with 3 children aged 12,6&5 and some staff & even ice cream sellers remembered us from last year. We had a perfect room, 2 bedroom apartment with so much space for all of us. The hotel is in a great location so you can walk to many restaurants & bars down the beach & fishermans market. The younger children loved Mai from the kids club & frut who babysat. All in all a perfect holiday. We was there over Easter & the kids club did nice activities for the kids which was great.

Room Tip: For families the apartments in the newer side are fantastic with great views from 3rd floor.

We arrived onthe 9 march, picked up by Anantara driver the best service all smiles and full of info,very polished greeting and service upon arrival, we had 2brm I think delux, excelent room. fresh towels and room made up each day which was great. happy hour each day in arvo at pool swim up bar.the staff were very imformitive and told us about their suggestions and exteremly polite, even though they are closed for refubishment at the moment till nov would recomend a stay to others and we would come back with perhaps our whole family, some advice for those that use the taxis regulary 250 to 300 bht to trip to down town or up town but if you ask for meter read it would only be about 60 bht. fishermans road is a must on friday nights. I wish i could work here it is that good!!

Thank you very much for your great feedback!
We are delighted to read you had such a great time that you are already planning to come back with the family! Do drop us a line should you need any assistance for your booking!
Just a small correction: taxis in Samui do not use meters unfortunately, it is usually a fixed price that needs to be agreed on before getting in. :)

Looking forward to welcoming you back,
