“best hotel of my life”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

This is by far the best hotel I have been to. Everything was perfect. Started with our arrival, lady came to the car to great us, then took us to confortable chairs where we received cocktails and fresh towels, and made the check in. As it was our honey moon, we got rose petals in the bath tub:) the service was perfect all the time, the restaurant very good and not so expensive for the quality served. the beach is very beautiful, as well as the pool

Tropical tree lined entrance road, open airy reception, fabulous gardens with lily ponds and that was just on the way to our room after super efficient check-in in the library. After that we explored the pool, lovely, and the dedicated sunbeds on the sandy beach with clear blue water and views of Koh Phangan and the Big Buddha.
Bedroom very well appointed with large comfortable double bed, excellent shower and "flagons" of high quality shampoo, conditioner etc (unusually the Mrs used them so they must have been good!). Breakfast was buffet style with International and Asian options, plus an egg and waffle station, with sufficient variety to keep us interested for our 10 day stay. We dined at the hotel once and very much enjoyed the Thai food, but being located within easy walking distance of the Fisherman's village, which has a multitude of restaurants and bars, we ate there every other night and were never disappointed.
One extravagance we enjoyed was the Thai cooking course at the hotel. We were driven in a hotel limousine with Chef Apichai to Angthong market for an in depth look at all the herbs, spices, fruit and vegetables used in Thai cuisine. On return to the hotel we were then expertly guided, but not assisted, through the preparation and cooking of 3 Thai dishes which we had chosen from the available options. It was a fantastic experience and we ate everything we had cooked for our lunch, with a cold glass of very nice Thai white wine. We also brought home chopping boards, aprons, shopping bags, recipe cards, certificates and photos - mementos of a super day!
Finally, and not previously mentioned, we found all the staff at the hotel delightful and anxious to please at all times.
PS: in the 10 days of our stay we didn't get one mosquito bite between us (and my dear wife is normally a mossie feeding site), but aware of the danger of dengue fever we used anti mosquito sprays on our exposed skin, and the inroom plug-in devices provided.

Dear valued guest.

Thank you very much for taking the time to post such a detailed review.
We are delighted you have had such a great time, enjoying the property, its facilities, location and all the small touches placed here and there! But most important, we are very proud of Chef Apichai and his cooking class! Each guest attending the Spice Spoons program, leaves with a wonderful and memorable experience. On top of that, you can cook the dishes once back home thanks to the recipe cards!
Do not hesitate to contact me at anytime should you need any assistance in planning your next holidays to Samui or any other Anantara property, where your wife will be happy to find the same bathroom amenities! 

great choice of hotel. spectacular first impressions in reception, the library and at night the illuminated water lily pond.
rooms large, modern and spotless. nice bedding and the towels were clean, stain free and fluffy.
excellent choice at breakfast, fresh fruit and bottled water is put in to your room each day. the staff are so friendly.
you can have the free use of two commuters in the library whilst 30 mins of free wifi is available per day, you can have wifi free all day if you complete a form but I actually found that 30 mins was ample to quickly check e mails and facebook.
nice beach location and easily located to gain access to Fishermans village with its shops, bars and resturants
made use of the free 15 minute head and neck massage, which was nice but didn't use any other spa facilities. no problems noted with mosquitoes, they did spray once during our weeks stay, but because I tend to get bitten wherever I go I do tend to use a repellent.

So far the best pool in Ko Samui, big enough ,nice landscape , some shadow .
The food is also very nice especially the seafood buffet.
Prices as always in Anantara are on the high side.
The hotel is quite near to the airport.
It is located near the fisherman village.
The rooms downstairs are pretty nice.
Careful for disabled people no lift and rooms up to 3. floor.

Ok: Breakfast.

Disappointing: The resort is infested with mosquitoes. The linen- towels and bed sheets were stained (brown spots and blood) and had to be replaced twice. They apologised with a fruit basket...

We are so happy we picked Anantara Bophut as our accommodations in Ko Samui. As the last leg of our honeymoon in Thailand we wanted to end on high note and definitely did!

The resort is complete luxury. We're talking jaw dropping, I've made it to paradise, luxury. From the moment we arrived we were impressed by the Thai architecture of the huge open lobby and awed by expansive lush green natural landscape.

We stayed in a Royal Sea View Suite on the third floor and highly recommend it, if for nothing else, the breathtaking ocean view from the balcony. The room service menu included a BBQ on the balcony feature that we thoroughly enjoyed. There were so many touches done right at Anantara. Amazing staff and our concierge, Gift, was particularly helpful in planning our offsite excursions.

The location was ideal for us, the Bophut area is charming, walking distance to the Fisherman's Village and convenient enough to get to Chaweng's nightlife scene. The infinity pool stretched to the beach which was basically backyard to the resort.

Tip: Like all resorts, the up charge of having them call transportation for you to the airport is at a premium. Try to make other arrangements with a local driver.

Given the human and animal rights issues in this region I admit to going to Thailand with little enthusiasm. Nothing has changed on my reservations however I couldn't help but be impressed by the people I met and the places I saw. From arrival to departure this hotel exceeded expectations. We had a room on the third floor and were offered an upgrade on the first day! Given that we had a full sea view (which is fabulous); two good sized balconies; a 7 foot wide four poster bed and an excellent sized room we could see little point in an upgrade. The rooms are clean and comfortable with working AC and regularly well serviced including a replenishment of fruit which was a nice touch. I understand that the hotel has been recently refurbished and there is a light and airy feel to it. The whole place is relaxing geared towards hedonism; the gardens between the reception and pool area are interestingly planted and the pool overlooks a small but adequately serviced coarse sand beach. The gym is small but serviceable for holiday purposes. We used the hotel restaurant once but, to be fair, the location is such that there is plenty of alternatives on the doorstep including the outstanding Cafe 69 as well as all the facilities of the Fisherman's village. Breakfast is OK without being exceptional and the bars are efficiently run with good service albeit comparatively expensive. The spa seemed OK but, again, there is a lot of competition very near by. From a comfort; location and appointment point of view this hotel ticked all the boxes well and I would recommend it to anyone going to Ko Samui.
Bophut is a holiday place and apart from the language could be any seaside place anywhere in the world that has this kind of climate, given my reservations about the cultural issues for me that was a plus!

Room Tip: Ask for an upper level room, particularly if you are inclined to insect bites. Lower rooms can be a...
