The Anantara Lawana is head and shoulders above the other hotels along this stretch of beach. It is a large hotel and caters for all kinds of guests; couples, families and singletons. We stayed in a sea view villa which had it's own pool which was a great plus, but the service around the beach and pool area was also very good and attentive, although obviously a lot busier. The vast majority of guests eat out in the evening, so there is no bar scene in the evening, although the hotel always has a BBQ or something similar organised 2/3 times a week. The buffet breakfast is very generous and extensive, it's advisable to get there before 9am to get the table of your choice, the service is impeccable.
The sea is very shallow in this area, so very safe for swimming. You can take long walks along Chaweng beach from here or take a taxi into town which is about 200 baht, ie about £4. The market at Fisherman's Village on a Friday evening is a must, a crazy experience of drinking Mohitos whilst shopping!
