Anantara Lawana Koh Samui Resort

Koh Samui, Thailand

The hotel

Set within lush, tropical gardens, this luxurious sanctuary occupies a prime location overlooking one of Koh Samui’s most beautiful beaches. Capturing the laid back essence of living beside the sea, the infinity-edged swimming pool practically merges with the ocean and the beautifully appointed suites and villas give the impression of being open to the elements with sliding glass doors leading directly onto furnished terraces.

This hotel is without fault in every respect, from the moment we stepped out if our transfer taxi to the moment we departed for the airport. The staff were attentive without being interfering and the whole experience was beyond expectations.

I have stayed at a number of the Anantara Hotels over the last two years, but this was my first visit to the Lawana. My intention was to stay for one week, but ended up staying for three, and was treated to a discounted upgrade and a free massage for my trouble. Be assured it was no trouble. I whole heartedly agree with all of the previous reviews. The hotel is far enough away from the airport and flight path that you do not hear any noise but the waves. A taxi ride to the town centre ( which is under the flightpath) is only 200 to 300 Baht and they expect and respect you to barter. There is a Tesco Lotus on the Ring Road to the right of Chewing Main Street, but don't produce your Club Card, that system does not exist here. Sorry no points today. Weird, but it is worth a visit just to see the difference between the UK Tesco and Thai. The same goes for Boots the chemist in the Mall situated just off the Main Chaweng High Street. Read less
