We have stayed here on 3 previous occasions and were really looking forward to enjoying all that this resort has to offer. Unfortunately they are not offering most of what makes this an appealing destination - no boat service, no fitness centre, no happy hour, no riverside breakfast, and very limited dining options. We appreciate that this may be necessary as a result of a long closure, but none of this was communicated when we booked. We are paying full prices for half of the services. I would recommend staying away until they are able to offer everything that you are paying for. A very disappointing experience that will most likely be our last stay at an Anantara resort. Read less
