We have had an amazing stay in a private Pool Villa. From arrival, greeted by the GM, to special arrangements made for us, a perfect stay. Big thanks to Emanuel who looked after us and made the impossible possible. Perfect surprises for our magical stay. We can’t thank the Lawana team enough. Highly recommend!

With so many brand new hotels in Samui, senior name - Anantara lawana somehow still impressed guests like us and I think the majority of the impressiveness is contributed staffs and their genuine hospitality and kindness. We visited during the soft lockdown so the kids club was closed, however, we were allowed to borrow toys from kids club to our villa. Special thanks to K Oh for making fresh ginger tea for me, K Santi outlet manager to come to fix our food tariff at the villa for us, K Pink for looking after us as much as you can that we feel comfortable as home, K Eak K Mind and K Ae for catering and making sure that we all were well fed. Bottom line: Villa cleanliness - 10 Food - 8 Villa layout - 8 (no solid partition between bedroom and living room, no bathtub) Beach - 7 (fishermen ruined the beach a bit by dropping litters everywhere) Services - 10 Read less

First of all, the property is beautifully maintained with many plants. You are surrounded by greenery. It is conveniently located a very short walking distance to a minimart, hospital, pharmacy and restaurants. Although the beach is bit rocky, it is still very nice and you are able to take a long walk. All the rooms are very private and secure.… Read more
First of all, the property is beautifully maintained with many plants. You are surrounded by greenery. It is conveniently located a very short walking distance to a minimart, hospital, pharmacy and restaurants. Although the beach is bit rocky, it is still very nice and you are able to take a long walk. All the rooms are very private and secure. We stayed in the gorgeous pool villa. The villa was well designed, spacious and tastefully decorated. Even if you have kids you will still have your personal space in the villa and do your work while the kids can play outside. The villa felt very cozy like being in your own home. They have the most comfortable bed and pillows. The bathroom is huge. It has both indoor and outdoor showers, and is connected to the pool area. The living area has a coffee/tea station, a very cold fridge and a large table - perfect for dinning in. The F&B staff (Khun Sorn and Sunny) provided a excellent service. Most hotels have staff standing around the guests while dinning and it gets a bit annoying. Not here. The staff here are attentive but not in your face. The food was tasty. Their southern Thai dishes were so delicious. Khun Ploy was such a delightful guest assistant. She was always there to assist us without being intrusive. She helped us with the transportation arrangement, (Khun Jay was a wonderful guide) food and anything that we needed. It is recommended that guests visit the Seen Beach Club. It is right on the beautiful Chaweng beach, 5 minutes from the resort. The food and cocktails are very tasty. It is a perfect place for both kids and adults. You could spend half a day chilling there. Thank you to all the staff for their hospitality despite the unfortunate Covid situation. We did not want to leave the hotel and would highly recommend it to everyone. Read less

Came here for Valentine’s Day and was VERY VERY well taken care of by Sunny (our guest manager) who honestly so great at his job and went out of his way to arrange one of the best V-Days that we have ever celebrated. I thought I could get flowers from koh phangan but I was WRONG! But Sunny found a friend who could bring a bouquet from Koh Samui which is literally on another island and brought it all the way to koh Pha-ngan Anantara! Wow did he save me! Thank you Sunny! As for surroundings, Plenty of food nearby so you can walk around outside of the hotel and explore a bit. The Mexican restaurant close by is very good. Apparently there are very nice Thai food near by as well. Certainly had no complaints at all during our stay here. Beach was amazing. Surrounding area was great for night walk and food. Service by Anantara was topnotch . If I had to pick a con was just that my pasta did not have enough bacon and that was the only thing I could think of so you can see how amazing this trip was xD Once again thank you Anantara and Sunny!! Definitely coming back ! Read less

We were here 6 nights with a young family and Khun Fon was amazing and very accommodating. Thank you for helping to make our stay one to remember! She organised day tours and activities and was so thoughtful in the little touches, like preparing beach towels for us for the day.
