Khun Nina at the bar was so lovely and helpful. She was the highlight of going outside to the relaxation area! The cappuccino was delicious too! The location is great, with wonderful views and a great cool breeze over the river. I'm glad to be here for my quarantine.

Had 3 dishes , a piece of pastry plus 2 drinks at THB 2,100 . I love Falafel but the one I had at Anantara was not tasty at all. No entry to the pool or the pier . Not good for visit this time of the year .

I decided to add this review as a guide for those who need to quarantine on arrival to Thailand. The arrangements were seamless, with a driver and van dedicated to take guests direct from the airport once you exit, to the hotel. There the check-in is secure, efficient and you are introduced to the various procedures for your stay. The on-site dedicated medical team also takes your temperature and explains the scheduled 2 Covid tests which are included in the package. Due to their relative experience, the hotel has managed many guests and have adapted well to ensuring the comfort of the guests within reason. All meals are delivered to the rooms until you clear the 2 tests, after which you are able to dine at the riverside terrace. After clearing the first test you have access once a day to the riverside for some outdoor time and exercise. This made a big difference for me. After the second Covid test one can also at least stroll by the pool and use the outdoor exercise equipment. These little things may seem small but also make it more than bearable. The food is quite good and the friendly relaxed staff are very accommodating. Kudos also to the medical team who take your temperature twice daily and are very gentle while taking test samples. They are stationed at the hotel 24/7 in case of any symptoms developing. From reports by other colleagues and friends, I would definitely recommend this hotel for ASQ. Read less
