My partner and I wanted to celebrate our anniversary, so we decided to go to Koh Samui as I had never been there before. We searched for the hotel considering hotel information, hotel photos and guest reviews. Finally, we chose to stay at Anantara Lawana Koh Samui Resort. We loved our "Anantara Sea View Pool Villa" room. It was specious with private pool and sea view. The room was decorated in Thai and Oriental styles. I think this room type is good for a couple or lover :) There would be some mosquitoes as the hotel was full of lush green foliage of trees but no worries because the hotel provided mosquitoes repellents for us already. We really appreciated great service and kind assistance from Khun Rainnie who was our villa host. She gave us her best service from the beginning to the end of our stay and made our anniversary special and privilege. Thank you very much Khun Rainnie :) Tree Tops Sky Dining & Bar was the place that we chose to have dinner. We got the table at the high level with romantic atmosphere which was also organized by Khun Rainnie. All foods we ordered were very delicious (We ate it all ^o^) and we got a nice waitress, Khun Sorn to give us great service too. Moreover, hotel facilities were good and all staff at the hotel were very friendly and they were ready to give us any assistance if needed. If you are looking for the hotel to stay for your special day or event, I absolutely recommend this hotel to top choice. Read less

We spent just one night here, on a weekend in Samui. It didn't disappoint. The staff, without exception, was very personable and very friendly. In particular, Noey was very helpful, and always seemed to be looking out for us. When we visited in September, we were still made to feel welcome and special, by everyone at the hotel. It's the expectation when staying at an Anantara resort, for us. The pool villa we booked was wonderful. Although it wasn't large, it was big enough for us, for one night. The swing over the poll was a nice, playful touch. Sadly, the weight allowance meant only one of us could try it out. ;-p The food and drinks were also quite good. The breakfast buffet was replaced with an a la carte menu (which you need to read on your mobile phone - printed menus only on request), but there were plenty of choices. Overall, the resort was quite beautiful. A little hilly, perhaps, but once you get down to the beach, the steps are worth it. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again, or at any Anantara really.

Had a chance to stay for 2 nights in their beach front pool villa. Everything was flawless beginning with well maintained facilities and over the top services from their staff (especially Thanks to K Jay & K Rainnie who took extra cares for us during our stay). Room was larger than most of the same category hotel in Kho Samui. Bed was so comfortable we did overslept on first night. There are less in-room lightings and was a little too dark for us at night. Turndown service was also excellent, used towels were refreshed with new ones, and shower room was cleaned up too! Breakfast was freshly cooked and served from the a la carte menu (buffet is cancelled for the moment). Read less
