@ the Over Water Villa...IT'S LIKE I DIED AND WENT TO HEAVEN!!! 😁

Nigeria

I write this review with a little bit of trepidation! Why? Because I doubt I will be able to do this resort justice 🤔 There aren't words in the English dictionary to describe how blown away I was by the sheer brilliance of this institution! This is honestly THE BEST HOTEL I HAVE EVER HAD THE PLEASURE OF STAYING IN, IN MY ENTIRE LIFE!!! I kid you not! Anantara Resort is a very beautiful hotel, albeit in a subtle sort of way. It has a very classic and understated beauty that adequately captures that dynamic, elegant Thai spirit & hospitality. I had already been to Crescendo Restaurant for Friday Brunch and lunch, afternoon tea at Lotus Lounge, as well as to the Spa a few years ago. All experiences were memorable and excellent, with skillful, dedicated staff at all locations. I wrote a raving review about the brunch back then. I decided to stay here because of how impressed I was, and boy o boy did this place knock it out of the ballpark! First of all, a very charming gentleman by the name of SOUM checked us in. He stated that he was to be our Villa Host, and that we could call him from our room anytime we needed anything. A lovely tamarind-like welcome drink was presented to us and then we proceeded to the Tuk-Tuk waiting outside to take us to our very own fabulous 'Villa on the Water'! The Tuk-Tuk 'chauffeurs' are all so cheerful and committed. I must mention ADEBAYO, who was always very energetic. The room was breathtaking! Really massive, with warm, inviting hues and gleaming dark mahogany furniture and fittings. They even provided an extra foldable bed for my son. The room had a glass panel beneath, (just at the base of the bed), where you could view the sea. We got to see lots of adorable fish 🐠 🐡 🐟 especially early in the morning and late at night! The bathroom was impeccable, with shiny, silver brass-like wash basins, (for him & her); a separate toilet room, bathtub with a view of the sea, mini closet space and expansive shower cubicle. The room opened out to a gorgeous outdoor private balcony/deck area complete with 2 lounging chairs and one humongous day bed; all with umbrellas and over head canopies to provide shade. The bed and pillows were divine! So super-dupper comfortable that I almost couldn't wake up to pee at night ☺ The T.V had an array of channels and could swivel to all degrees, so I was able to watch it from every angle in this amazing room. Room service was promptly delivered and tasted great. Our Villa came with the half-board offer, so breakfast and dinner were included. Everything was impeccably presented and tasted incredible, (for both meals), with so much variety on offer. We really enjoyed the different themed nights they had at Crescendo Restaurant. This meant that there was no 'redundancy', and you could look forward to something new, fresh and interesting every night. I ran into a member of staff that I met 3 years ago when we came for brunch. I forgot her name when I wrote the brunch review. This lady is absolutely lovely. Her name is DEA, and she most definitely deserves an honorable mention here. She is so friendly and engaging. Dea went out of her way to cater to us in every way she possibly could; both back then and now. And I'm so glad that she remembered me and we proceeded to chat for a very long time everytime I saw her! The service at any other hotel I've ever stayed in dramatically pales and fades in comparison to what you have at Anantara. Everybody at this resort was competent, dedicated, polite, and extremely professional. They all went above and beyond to please us, plus they always had a smile/warm greeting for us. Everyone from all the Tuk-Tuk valets, to the cheerful staff at the kid's club, to the security guards by our villa, the staff at Crescendo, and even the lifeguards by the pool and beach! My son and his nanny had so much fun frolicking in the beach and pool area 🏊‍♂️🍹 🏖And I love how the pool closes quite late, so you get to enjoy many hours relaxing at the excellent facilities. Some of the staff by the pool area even got in the water and played handball with the kids, to my son's great delight 🤽‍♂️ What a nice treat! I never, ever sensed an unwillingness to 'get the job done' from the staff at Anantara. A truly, truly exceptional and exemplary work ethic exists at this incredible resort. The only, (ONLY) negative thing I would state is MIMI at the egg station at breakfast. She was very stone-faced, unfriendly and wouldn't respond verbally to you whenever you placed an order; not even nodding her head, though she would still make your eggs. Thought she was having a bad day the first morning I saw her, but that stern, serious look was a permanent fixture on her face for subsequent mornings. Apart from this minor 'glitch', our stay was here was 'Pure Perfection'. Like I said in my title......'it's like I died and went to heaven'! For me, Anantara The Palm has set a certain standard; an extraordinary and incomparable one that all institutions should strive to attain. The 'sheer brilliance' of this institution leaves me at a loss for words 🙊 It was a superb experience unlike no other, and I will cherish it forever. Every single thing was on point at Anantara The Palm 👍 This should have been the 'first 7 star hotel in the world', (not that "other" islandy one! 😂). Everyone should stay in this divine, superb hotel at least once in a lifetime. You guys at Anantara should be very proud of this exemplary institution because you've really outdone yourselves 👏👏👏 A truly memorable, magnificent experience. I can confidently guarantee that if you stay at Anantara The Palm, it will be the most spectacular hotel experience you will ever have! It is a 'Benchmark for Excellence'!!! 🎉🎉🎉

Great Experience

London, United Kingdom

I stayed with my family in September at this beautiful resort. I have only just started using trip advisor and knew i had to leave a review. After a family bereavement we decided to book a last minute get away to relax. We felt like part of the furniture after a day. We where treated so well MALCOLM is a credit to the hotel who is in charge of entertainment and always had a positive smile and energy. We had a minor issue with a massage which we booked for my mum as the spa attendant did not give her the full treatment to which the spa called us back and offered her another complementary! We are so happy with this choice of hotel at this time for us and cannot wait to come back! We had the half board option which was brilliant and worth the money! Food Was of very high standard.
