"Honeymoon- amazing trip"
The villas at Mai Khao was simply beautiful. The service was excellent as well. We had a 1 bedroom apartment. The bed was really comfortable, the bathroom nicely decorated. We had room service, and ordered pad Thai. It was delicious. We went to the beach near the villas (you can either walk or buggy), which was beautiful. There are plenty of massage huts along the beach - very good massage.
"Five star "
The Anantara is really good Hotel. Staff are very friendly not the normal smile and in side saying up yours ... jus love the atmosphere there. Hotel is also family friendly with kids club and everything, but also so romantic. We have a different room for two nite just with me and my wife in private bungalow. You can open class door and hope in the private swimming pool butt naked.
"Have a nice honeymoon."
Have a nice trip. Surprised and admired the best service for the once luxurious natural atmosphere. I want to go after anantara To invite me' If you inviting me to go. Fascinated by a Phuket on this occasion.
My wife and I first visited Anantara Mai Khao in October 2015 and had one of the most relaxing and enjoyable trips imaginable. We decided to visit again this year with our 3 young children and we were not disappointed. The accomodation, facilities and food was again 10 out of 10. What really stands this resort apart is the staff. They are friendly, accomodating and will go great lengths to make your stay a memorable one. I highly recommend this resort if you are after a relaxing stay at a first class resort.
"Stunning resort with spacious pool villas"
Stunning resort with spacious pool villas, set amidst lush nature and offers direct beach access. Everything you could possibly need is provided for (incl. candles and matches, mosquito spray, beach bag, etc.), every request will be performed immediately to perfection, every staff member will greet and smile at you, every moment here is bliss. Even the limousine service from the airport was amazing (friendly driver, gentle driving, incl. iPad, soft drinks, snacks and cold towels). It is the perfect place for relaxation and honeymoons, as it is set far away from the hustle and bustle of Phuket city. Compared to other 5 star properties on the island it offers a very intimate and secluded feeling, plus traditional Thai-style villas and a tranquille atmosphere (even the breakfast buffet offers tons of Thai dishes, exotic fruits and fresh cocunut water - yummy!). Especially at night you get this special Robinson Crusoe feeling, when it's just you, the stars and some geckos in the dark bathing under the moonlight. Anantara's staff takes much effort to remember personal details and speak to you on a personal level (e.g. hand-written good-night wishes on mirrors and leaves, staff remembers what you ate last morning, etc.). In general, people are very approachable, they like to chat up and joke with you. I appreciate this level of service and hospitality which has become increasingly hard to find. Leaving this resort was the hardest part, which in itself says alot! Thank you, Nam, Jai, Jack and all the others, who help keep this resort flourishing! Room for improvement: + Bikes are rusty and nearly fall apart + The villas show their true age by now, bathtub and shower handles nearly come off the wall, lots of scratches and stains on the floor and walls, the wooden doors outside are hard to close + It gets very dark at night, you can easily get lost on the compound, as there are 4 hotels connected to one another, bring a flashlight or your phone so you don't accidentely step on a monitor lizard + Breakfast selection is good, however sometimes on the cheaper side (sushi rolls lack salmon or tuna, instead they are filled with cucumbers and surimi) + In-room tea selection is very limited + There's no one on the beach, as red flags are constantly up due to strong currents and jellyfish, and it's full of plastic trash, too. The more you walk away from the hotel the worse it gets, simply shocking. Needs to be cleaned up ASAP. Conclusion: 9/10
