Due to its popular reviews here at tripadvisor we have decided to go and stay at anantara. I stayed here long enough to feel the warm welcome of the friendly staffs. The restaurant in the beach is wonderful and nice. The pool is good and well maintained.

Stayed: November 2013, traveled solo

Anantara Lawana is an amazing property in Samui, not only is it near the the busy Chaweng beach but far enough to be secluded from all the noise... it has a quite secluded beach to itself... which is clean and the waves are negligible as it is a bay... the pool area is beautiful, with white sand sitting area and the calm setting is just perfect...

The breakfast is a must while staying do take B&B very lavish and fresh... now what made our stay even better was the impeccable service offered by all the staff members, be it front desk, restaurant staff or the bed turndown house keeping service, everything was excellent.

However i feel now the property needs a little renovation, as the bathroom floor and the doors and windows are showing signs of ageing... it was purely the service that hide all the little flaws that are there in the property...

Totally recommend this place...

Room Tip: Deluxe Plunge Pool Room is highly recommended...

Dear GSNEPAL,

We are glad to hear that you find in us your paradise and appreciate that you have taken the time to share your feedback here on TripAdvisor.

With heading into a couple of weeks of low season now we are taking the opportunity to intensify our ongoing repair and maintenance efforts and will close whole sections of the resort to recover from the strong weather conditions and busy year we have been experiencing so far. I am confident that upon your next return you will see that the property has been kept in a good shape.

Let us know next time you plan your trip so we can assist you with the arrangements.

With kind regards

Great Hotel with an very nice interesting restaurant (Top inside the trees).
We got a room which was like a basement of one of the Villas. Since this wasn't what we were looking for, we upgraded our self (+40,-Euro per night) so we took a Villa with a sharing pool, which was really fantastic.

Breakfast was great with good variety of warm and cold food items, fresh squeezed juices, as well live cooking station.

The Beach is not very attractive, however, the private and as well the public pool is quiet good.

Chaweng downtown is just 5 -7 minutes drive with the thai private busses.

You must book and see the full day boots trip in national marine park.

Stayed: March 2013, traveled as a couple

Everything about the hotel is great from welcome to rooms ... But the treatment and special care taken by the management and staff is truly exceptional. While we were there , my wife fell ill and had to be hospitalised . Every single day while in the hospital, a senior management staff was visiting us and offered us hotel car for travel to and from the hospital and to name one Ms Tumm who personally took care of my daughter while I was in the hospital with my wife. I am truly grateful to the management and staff for their support and services offered . I would definitely love to go back to Koh Samui , only for stay at Ananatara ...

We will ensure that they will receive the recognition they deserve.

This was my second trip to the Anantara this year. Why? because it is fantastic. I took a similar room to the one on the previous trip (private pool villa) and once again everything was excellent. I arrived by the hotel limo and was greeted with "Welcome back to the Anantara" even a number of staff remembered my name! Whenever I get to Koh Samui the Anantara will always be my choice for accomodation.

Room Tip: Take the private pool villa away from the main walking route to the beach. They are quiet.
