Good experience

Posted Feb 7, 2017
The staff is what this hotel is all about. I wished there were other activities like table tennis or something and also more variety with the food. I would also wished there was more light in the room for when you need it. Hubby and I had a great relaxing holiday and would like to bring the kids but just worried if pool and beach (though both amazing) are enough to keep the kids content

We had a excellent time , the room , the food .were all great , but what made our stay exceptional is the hotel stuff . Silvia , the manager ,was there for us 24/7 to make sure we are happy with the hotel . she even arrange for a rental of a professional sap and convince them to derive it to the hotel Nadav , a bright young man , was there every time and even came to the hotel on his day off just to help us plan a day trip. Those employees turned our vacation from great to exceptional.

Excellent hotel !! everything was tip top !!

Posted Oct 30, 2016
Pros: Great rooms, great beach, great staff, great everything !
Cons: Location is quite isolated from the rest of the island (for us that was mostly a good thing), taxi fares were quite high for other parts of the island
Location: Bam bam - great massages. JipShop - great food! we actually went there like 3 times... Also, try the restaurant of the nearby hotel (Buri Rasa).
We were recommended to stay in this hotel after our friends stayed there for their honeymoon. All i can say is - WOW!! The hotel staff were *REALLY* nice and friendly, and by that I mean you could feel like you're at home with friends or family. We were mainly in contact with Rebecca, Salsa and Jenny. All were great, super helpful and nice to us. Oh and of course Tua (from the restaurant !!). You'll see what i mean once you arrive to the hotel and meet them ! The room we stayed in (Pool villa) was fantastic - very large and designed to fit the location. The huge shower with 2 separate sinks is also a nice touch, not to mention the comfortable bed to crash into after too many pineapple shakes at night ... The only minor issue one can have with the hotel is its location, which may not be best suited for EVERYBODY. It is located in a small little village up in the northern part of the island. The surroundings are nice and quiet, with a few options for cafes / bars / restaurants in the area (oh and massages also! go to Bambam ! you won't regret it). This area probably is a good fit for couples and families, but may not be all that great for other types of travellers. Getting to other parts of the island is done by bikes or by taxis, which can be quite costly if done on a daily basis. Overall - this is a great hotel and really the best value for money you could get! we were so happy with it that we knew we had to book an Anantara hotel in Bangkok after leaving Koh phangan :)

Had a wonderful time. The staff were friendly and attentive, especially Khun Tua, the dining room hostess who briefed us everyday on what was going on in the resort.

Amazing Hotel

Posted Sep 16, 2016
Pros: Everything! :)
Cons: The prices in the hotel are basically unreal comparing to the surroundings, the breakfast was a bit lacking
Location: Location is isolated&far from the main streets ~30 Minutes Near the hotel (1 minute) there are enough restaurants, massages &service
Great experience from the pick up in Ko Samui to the check out on the last day. We took the speed boat offered by the hotel (5,200 THB), the pick up driver was already waited before the scheduled time and took us to the hotel pier where the great staff checked us in and offered some cold drinks & towels. When arrived to the hotel, the staff waited on the beach, adorable Salsa greeted us and took us to a tour in the hotel and to our fabulous room (Ocean Pool Suite). The rooms are well equipped and very clean (housekeeping arrives twice a day). This hotel really thought out on the little things; barrels with water to wash your legs before entering the room, cold drinks and towels when sitting on the beach, free sup and kayaks on the beach, cute notes on the bed etc. The staff is so nice and kind, we really enjoyed our stay!!! The only 3 things I can comment about are the prices in the hotel which are basically unreal comparing to the surroundings, the breakfast was a bit lacking and the pools in the rooms which are very small (this is unchangeable but who really needs the pool when you have such an amazing beaches around the island :) you have to visit in the bottle beach!). Overall we definitely recommend to stay in this property and if ever will be back to Koh Phangan we will definitely stay here again!!! Quiet location, amazing beach, great restaurants and massage near the hotel. The stay is totally worth every penny! Recommended to anybody who seeks quiet and luxury

Best part of our Asia tour honeymoon/vacation

Posted Aug 4, 2016 on Hotels
Wow!! What an excellent resort! My wife and I spent four wonderful days of our honeymoon at Anantara while in Ko Phangan. The excellency started with the most delightful check in experience that either of us had ever had at a resort or hotel and followed by news of an upgrade to two different suites. I booked this resort in part because of a recommendation from a friend/coworker and the reviews that I read on multiple forums. Everyone mentioned how great the staff is and that truly is the case. Of course the property is everything that you would want and dream of in a 5 star resort but the staff is unbelievable. As a guest, the make you feel very much at home and tended to without being too intrusive (as was the case in other places we stayed). They coordinate every detail of your stay (whether it be on or off the resort). Highlights from the resort: the breakfast of course - so yummy and with such great variety. Bobo the staff member who works with the water sports (he taught me how to paddle board without ever having done it himself, Rebecca from guest services (handles ever detail of your stay and she speaks like 146 languages!), Salsa from guest services who taught us Salsa classes:) and made us feel like VIP guests, the welcome drink and refreshing drinks/towels they bring to you on the beach, the location!!! Not only the location on the island but also on the beach itself - so close to all the key things.
