Absolutely Perfect!


Our stay at the Villas was simply incredible and one we will never forget. My wife and I spent our honeymoon at the resort, and no detail was spared by the staff to ensure that our special trip was just that. We stayed in Koh Samui (Chaweng Beach) for the first week of our honeymoon, and the resort arranged for a private car to pick us up at our hotel and take us to the speedboat (at no charge). The speedboat ride was smooth — the staff took care of our belongings, and all we had to do was enjoy the ride and the view. Yes, the speedboat is a little pricey, but it’s totally worth it (also, the resort is in a remote location, so it’s not easy to get to by other means). Upon arrival, the staff greeted us by name and took us right to our room (we stayed in an Ocean Garden Pool Suite), where they had set up champagne, fruit, and chocolates for us to celebrate our honeymoon. Again, no details were spared! The room itself was great. Plenty of space for two, bathroom/shower were nice and clean, and the outdoor shower was wonderful. The resort provides you with free water and a small snack each day inside the room, as well as a decent amount of scotch, gin, and vodka free of charge to enjoy throughout your stay. The bed has a luxurious mosquito net (this is a luxury resort, after all), and they provide you with bug spray and a mosquito coil as well. And then there’s the outdoor pool. Some reviewers have commented that the pool is too cold and shaded — I think it’s a matter of personal preference, but I could see how some would think that. The sun in August/September is no joke though, so cooling off in that pool was perfect for us. Other reviewers have commented on the lack of privacy — it’s true that people could look in, but our experience was that people had the decency not to stare at us while we were in the pool. Not once did we ever feel uncomfortable. Overall, I think having the pool is worth it, and there’s not too many opportunities to be in paradise with an infinity pool overlooking the beach. The best part of our experience, without question, was the service. Andrea, the GM, made us feel at home and tended to all of our needs. Breakfast was a real treat everyday with Tua taking care of us (and the food was great). The folks who walked up and down the beach providing us with dry beach towels, drinks, and cold face towels allowed us to relax without moving an inch (we are jerks for forgetting their names, because they never forgot ours). Best of all, our friend Jazzy kicked off happy hour everyday with the most amazing cocktails — there was not one cocktail we had that wasn’t perfectly balanced, sufficiently boozy, and (most importantly) made with love. Everyone on the Anantara team was so nice and made our honeymoon a trip we will never forget. An added bonus: there is a small village right next to the resort with amazing dining options, liquor stores, pharmacies, ATMs . . . whatever you need. Whether you’re like us on our honeymoon, or you’re traveling with a family (which many were during our stay), you will not have to worry about a thing — you can simply relax, be pampered, and get away from reality. We can’t wait to come back!

My proposal

Bophut, Thailand

I was staying in Anantara on 15-17 Sep 2019. Their wonderful team has helped me a lot on my special secret mission - my proposal. Without Anantara team support and special arrangement for the dinner by design, flower banquet and balloon, I cannot imagine how my proposal will be looked like. I cannot express enough how much I appreciate since the first email conversation until it is finally done. The whole stay was fantastic despite of the bad weather. We found all staff are so friendly and helpful. They deserve recognition for their hard work! Highly recommend this quiet and romantic resort.
