What a lovely hotel with Amazing staff all so lovely especially the supervisor at breakfast she was amazing ! The beach however?? What a dirty awful beach ! Rocky rubbish around and the sand was awful. More like small stones than sand. If you want a nice beach stay in the centre of Chaweng it’s a beautiful beach with lovely clean sand and beautiful clean water. The position of this hotel with the beach let’s it down unfortunately. They also need to enforce a No reservation of all the sun beds by the pool . People leave a book a towel and what ever else is of little value on the beds for hours on end at breakfast time and then turn up after 4 hours after not using it and say it’s theres ?? Really ? NO if you leave for more than 30 minutes your stuff should be removed so other guest can use the sun beds ! Totally ridiculous and it happens world wide !! It’s time for the hotels to say NO you can’t reserve them for longer that 30 minutes! It’s only fare ! Everyone in the hotel has a right to use them and not have to sit far away because people are selfish Read less

My wife and I stayed at Anantara Lawana for our honeymoon. Overall, it was a wonderful place to stay, and I would highly recommended for couples traveling for a relaxing getaway. Here are some of the highlights: *Facilities / Staff* - We booked a Deluxe Pool Access room, but on arrival learned that we had been upgraded to a villa with a private pool! - The villa was *extremely* spacious, with a bedroom, indoor living room, outdoor sala, and a couple of beach chairs. We could have just stayed in the room reading our books all day! Turn down service twice a day felt quite luxurious - The staff was pleasant, helpful and wonderful to talk to. Thanks especially to Rus for his kindness (and being everywhere all the time!), Yuri for chatting with us at breakfast, Bee for cleaning the room, and Pancake for her help checking out - We were there during low season, but at that time there were plenty of beach and pool chairs to go around - One note for families: There are a few activities, but not very many. If your kids are ok just hanging out at the pool, that's fine! But if they need a little more structure or variety to their day, this might not be the place for you. There were plenty of children there, mostly teens *Food* - Breakfast buffet was delightful. We left stuffed and happy every day - Ocean Kiss / onsite Thai restaurant were very good. (Though, pro tip: They don't charge extra for room service :-) ) - Tree Tops was amazing! There's a separate review for that experience *Excursions* - We took the excursions to the Elephant Haven and Ang Song Marine Park, both booked through Ocean Samui. Both were lots of fun, and are highly recommend them *Location* - 5 minutes from the airport. It was really nice to get to our room so quickly after landing - 10 minute taxi ride to the main strip off Chaweng beach, so you're near lots of outside restaurants and bars if you're looking for some different food options (and if you say a week like we did, you probably will be) - Chaweng is also a ~30-40 minute walk away along the beach, which we did several times. Walking back via the beach at night was also completely safe, though make sure the tide is not coming in! Read less
