“Peaceful beauty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I traveled to Koh Tao to celebrate our tenth wedding anniversary and decided to stay at Anankhira. I'm so glad we did! The accommodations were beautifully and simply done. The private pool and view of the sea were amazing! Kit was very attentive, arranging our request for a private snorkeling trip and in-villa massages on our actual anniversary. The included breakfast was delicious and ample. I read other reviews about finding lizards and bugs in the living room area. Neither were an issue during our stay. Plus, what do you expect with indoor/outdoor living? We were provided mosquito coils and repellant lotion, and I appreciate the resort's efforts to manage pests without an over-abundance of chemicals. Rest assured, the air conditioned, fully indoor bedroom was a lovely sanctuary to get away from everything. For us, the location was perfect - quiet and away from the noise, but less than a 10 minute walk into Sairee village with all the restaurants and night life you could hope for. If I'm fortunate enough to come back to Koh Tao, I would absolutely stay at Anankhira again.

Such a perfect, tranquil stay on the island, after the hustle & bustle of resorts and hotels in other areas of Thailand, Anankhira was the perfect private retreat to really relax, unwind and enjoy the beautiful island of Koh Tao. The private villa and pool makes the stay very personal and relaxing, my partner and I had such a wonderful stay in early February this year, and Kit the manager was very helpful and was always available for any questions and advice about activities the island had to offer. We highly recommend staying here! Thankyou for the lovely stay, Astrid & Scott.

We had a fantastic time here even though i was unsure of the outside/inside set up, as i am a paranoid wreck with anything that crawls or flys and tend to get ate by everything, we did see the lizard and few bugs! but the view, the private pool, the thai experience was amazing, people are so helpful esp kit who speaks great english and would recommend you try the cooking here too best thai curry i had and so cheap! We would defo return!

Firstly a big thank you to Kit and all of the team- you made my stay so enjoyable. I visited at the start of the year with my girlfriend and we had such a perfect time. The views, the food, the rooms... It all came harmoniously together. Couldn't recommend it highly enough!

Room Tip: Miltonia villa is brilliant

Hello! I stayed here recently with a mate and couldn't have had a better time. Everything about this place was off the chain good. It's a few minutes from the beach and maybe 10-15 minutes to the main centre of town, but that flies by because of all you're seeing on the way, and it lets the place be proper serene. No troubles. You can leave the parties behind you on the beach and just unwind!!!

We both had a great time here. Weren't here for very long, but Kit (everyone talks about Kit, looking down these reviews!) was excellent and so was everyone else in our short time. Made us feel proper welcome. You've got to ask the staff about cleaning your towels and cleaning rooms and stuff, and I guess if you were bugged by it being a lot more indoor/outdoor it wouldn't really be for you, but that's minor. The place is a steal really.

Ace, would love to stay here again.

Room Tip: Def get one higher up, the views are waaaaay better.

Our stay in this hotel was excellent.The room we stayed in was as the photos showed the plunge pool the view etc. The deal also included massage dinner and wine so it made it a great day with after a day sun bathing and plunge pool we had a massage then dinner and wine great
The staff were good and a special mention for Kit who was always there when needed and who organised our tickets for our trip to Bangkok.
So to finish off the hotel was well worth the money
