I had my 40th birthday at the Anantara Rasananda. I chose to have it there because we looked at the resort for our wedding but it was slightly outside our budget. However, they gave us a taster meal and the food was so good I knew I needed to do something there!

It can be hard to arrange an event for 36 people abroad but both Arnaud (Food & Beverage Manager) and Chef Don (Head Chef) were very helpful whilst I was still in England doing the planning.

They asked what type of menu I wanted for the day, sent through recommendations and made all the adjustments I wanted – including adding mango and sticky rice as a desert even though it’s not on their regular menu.

We dropped in to see the Anantara when we arrived on the island to check everything was in place. We made the table arrangements and discussed payment options.

Come the day, as expected, the food was awesome, the service was seamless, the drinks and food arrived quickly and everybody had a great afternoon. We chose a timed drinks package which, when it ran out, The Anantara didn’t hustle us to leave, we had all the time we wanted to finish up, use the pool and loungers and have after drinks at the pool bar.

I was very happy and the whole experience was very special for me – thank you Anantara Rasananda Koh Phangan.

It was the first 2 nights of our honeymoon, and couldn't have asked for a better kick off to our romantic get away. From the speedboat transfer from Koh Samui (really and truly worth it) to the welcome and check in, it was effortless and we didn't have to lift a finger. I had mentioned via email that it was our honeymoon and the gorgeous welcome of flower petals and leaves on the bed was such a beautiful touch and would have taken the staff hours. A bottle of bubbly was waiting for us also! We stayed in the Thai Villa was was lovely and spacious with the bathroom almost as big as the room. Downstairs we had a day bed with plunge pool. The only thing not so great about being on a jungle island is the mosquitos which seem to love me, but leave my husband right alone. I used a lot of Incognito natural spray which worked a treat!

The private beach with its silky soft white sand is what you find on postcards, with crystal clear and warm water it was heaven to swim in. Breakfasts are mind boggling here, anything you could ever dream of is there, exotic fruits, home made pastries, even noodles but you must try the Crab Benedict, yes you read right, the blue swimmer crab is a local speciality on Koh Phangan and it's just as you think, with soft toasted english muffin, deliciously sweet crab meat, 2 perfectly poached eggs and a creamy hollandaise sauce - simply divine!

We really didn't bother to leave the Anatara as there was no need, except for a walk down to the main town for a look. The dinner in the restaurant was fantastic, and I'm always a bit wary of hotel dinners but the food was great, and very authentic flavours. If you go, you MUST visit the Spa, it's magical bliss, we had the Anatara signature massage which was one of the best treatments I've ever had. My husband and I both had this and again although pricy for Thailand it was an absolute treat - just think to yourself 'because you're worth it' and make sure you book yourself in.

All in all we had a wonderful time, the head chef and manageress said good bye to us upon leaving, but to be honest I wish we had stayed a couple more nights. Only thing I regret is not getting an ocean suite (they look amazing!), and when we come back for our 5 year anniversary you can bet I'll be putting in 2 pence so we can stay in one!

Thanks to the amazing staff - superb!

Room Tip: We loved our room it was a Thai Villa set on 2 stories, it's very quiet wherever you go on the resort, it's bliss, so I don't think you'll have any issues with noise.

Great location. Not a far walk at all (5 min) into the little village behind resort, where you can find great restaurants and thai massages. The rooms are so spacious and beautiful. The hotel is hip and modern. They had a movie night on the sand with a projector. so great!

We recently returned from Thailand after getting married in this incredible hotel.

From the moment we stepped into the resort we felt looked after and extra special. We stayed at the resort for 7 nights and we didn't want to leave. The one thing that struck both my partner and myself about the resort was the staff and their commitment to the small details. The hotel itself, it an exceptional 5 star hotel. We stayed in the Ocean Pool Beach Villa room and it was spectacular, well maintained clean, Apple TV, surround sound, everything you would hope a 5 star hotel room to be.

What makes this stand hotel of from many other worldwide 5 star resorts is its staff and their commitment. They have a sommelier, who gave us great advice about wines to try and food and helped us pair up food, Don the Chef runs a efficient kitchen, producing food that is exceptional, so much so you won't want to go anywhere else!

In reference to our wedding everything was taken care of to perfection and Arnaud, who ran the day for us, made sure of this. The beach is stunning and overall it is a little bit of paradise that you will LOVE. A wonderful testament to such a well- managed establishment, that happy well-managed staff equals very happy customers.
