We are currently still staying here in one of the pool villa rooms for our honeymoon, room 111. We had a private transfer from the airport. The hotel is about a 5minute journey away. Check in was absolutely fine. We received cold towels, cold lemon juice and flowers on arrival. The lady that checked us in (pancake) was very polite, friendly and happy. She also took our photo. We got taken to our room in a golf buggy. The room was WOW. We have our own pool it is amazing!!! We got a fruit basket, champagne and a cake in our room . We also had flowers on our bed with towel shaped swans. The hotel have thought of everything. They have a safe in the room, candles, wax melts that smell amazing, bug spray, dressing gowns, water bottles, netting around the bed. The bed is the most comfortable bed ever!!! The shower is outdoors and is amazing. There is also a shower inside and a huge bath outside. The room maid comes in the morning and also does a turn down service in the evening. The room is very clean and so is the pool. There is a huge choice for breakfast, cooked bacon, eggs, Thai food, cereals, lots of fruits, yoghurts etc its very very good. The beach is very pretty and the main pool is very nice too. There are a few shops and places to eat directly opposite the hotel. They are very good and cheap prices. Happy hour is 6-7pm and all the drinks are half price. The staff here are amazing and do a fantastic job. We have been to Chaweng centre in a taxi costing 200 baht, there are lots of shops and places to eat here. We walked back along the beach which took 20minutes. We have used the hotel gym and it is very good. We have no complaints about this hotel it is incredible and if you do complain you must be very fussy!!! Keep up the great job Anantara Lawana!!!

This would be a 5-star restaurant if it was not for my check-in experience with the hotel. My friend had her wedding here so most of her guests stay in this hotel. Around 20 of us came early in the morning and the hotel let us store our luggage. We came back around 4pm altogether from a boat trip. They did not sort our rooms out yet. Most of them need at least 10 min before the hotel sorted out what room they were assigned. But the luggage was placed in the room already. So I don't know what was the disconnect here. I also waited at least 10 min. And since I was the maid-of-honor I already know which room i would be in. I finally got so frustrated and pull up the email the bride sent to me and I have to tell them what room I am in. Then here's the fun part, the library (our assigned check-in area) cannot find my key, so they sent me to the reception. When I got there, the reception said my key is in the library. After another 10 min of back and forth, we finally got to the room. And because of this, we only had 30 min to get ready for the cocktail party. The room is super nice with the toilet and shower outdoor. You can a feel of closer to nature but you also get a feel of the bugs. A lot of ants are crawling on the desk in the room. The room is indoor. I think the hotel can do a better job putting insect repellent and spray when they clean the room. The staff are all very nice (apart of the terrible check-in experience). The breakfast food has a lot of choices and are super delicious. I wish they provide breakfast for a longer duration. After all, it's very likely that you won't wake up before 10am after a hungover.... The pool is very nice but can get pretty crowded during the day. You can also get a room with a shared pool which we did for the bridal party. The beach at the hotel is quite nice also. There's a lot of massage and restaurants around the hotel. But seems like the spa in the hotel has really high ratings although I didn't get a chance to experience it. The wedding at the resort was beautiful. I can see that the staff there are very experience with wedding planning. The food was delicious.

A dream in SAMUI. We have never seen a place with so much courteusy. We went there to comemorate our 10 years of marriage. Our choice was perfect and we recomend this beautiful Place for any kind of situation.

We stayed at the Anantara Lawana Koh Samui for our honeymoon and it was simply amazing. Not only was it absolutely beautiful, but the staff was amazing and very accomodating. The restaurants and bars on site were wonderful - the tree top restaurant was a culinary experience for sure and is a must try. We also liked that it was not quite in the bustle of the city center but close enough to walk there to enjoy other restaurants, markets and activities. We would definitely recommend this resort and stay again.

Lovely stay, personal attention, Cordial n helpful staff, great food....what else is required for the making of a great holiday?I carry back wonderful moments...The staff is there when you require something, else discreet in the back ground giving you an unobtrusive stay.The cooking lesson was the highlight with extremely informative and easy going chefs.....the plunge pool our room had was a great, intimate luxury....thoroughly enjoyed

This resort is right on the beach. Unfortunately it is getting old. The best rooms are the private pool villa. Amazing with an outdoor bathroom. Breakfast is wonderful. Right at the beach with a large delicious selection.

Last March, on my way to Australia I decided to make a stop in Samui and the only thing I can say about this resort, is that the service is amazing !!!! In all departments the smile and the friendliness are a constant and I felt genuinely welcomed. Don’t miss Tree Tops restaurant and the happy hour by the pool with typical Thai dances!

pancake was excellent she was extrememly courteous and sweet and upgraded us to the pool villa,pla at tree tops was excellent too the best hotel in ko samui i will definately come back again . the infinty pool has the best view

After spending a few days in Bangkok, Chiang Rai and Chiang Mai, this weas the perfect place for a relaxed ending of our honeymoon. All the staff was very friendly, amiable and helpful, doing their best to make our stay perfect. The room with plunge pool was perfect and romantic, very clean. The pool is fantastic and the beach is great. Great food at the restaurants and all soooo beutiful. This beutiful resort was simply perfect for our stay in Koh Samui.

Wonderful choice of room, and you can spend your whole time without leaving the room and pool. The pool side bar is a few steps away and the restaurant a few yards. The spa facilities were top notch, the staff was friendly and wonderful.
