This property is amazing. We stayed in a 2 bedroom-villa at the Marriott Beach Club for 7 days and had every amenity that we could even think of requiring. The room had a washer and dryer, satellite tv, kitchen utensils and appliances (microwave, stovetop, rice cooker, even a blender!). The housekeeping staff pay every attention to detail and deliver service with sincere smiles.
Walking around the resort is an experience altogether; every turn is a surprise and a sight to behold with all the greenery, flowers and fixtures like babbling brooks and bridges. There are three infinity pools. There is a high selection of restaurants. The only advice I can impart is to try to avoid the Anantara Grill. We had our engagement dinner there and found the grilled red snapper very bland. As an alternative, neighboring Anantara Hotel has "Sea Fire Salt" which has mouthwatering seafood, and for more reasonable pricing (we had more food for half our bill at the Anantara Grill).
A great feature of the hotel is that on the beach are services offered by locals. We ate at a local shack steps away from the resort Thai food, which was a fraction of the cost. Lined on the beach were also women offering massages, mani/pedis and clothing for sale.
After a few days of staying on the resort however, we felt a bit antsy at being exposed to a North American version of Thailand so in order to experience local culture, we rented a car ourselves and found to drive it much cheaper than hiring a driver along with it (rates dependent on the distance from the hotel).
We can't wait to go back to this hotel!
