Our time at Anantara Rasananda was just perfect! From a-z this guys don't miss a thing, the team are amazing, super details oriented and always making sure you have anything you need. The resort is beautiful and the beach is amazing.
"sun, sea, beach; exactly what we expected"
apart from very minor details, we experienced a very well managed resort. ambiance is enhanced by very friendly and attentive employees; always with a smile. Spacious villa that was perfectly looked after
This resort is really nice - as nice as the pictures. The restaurant The Bistro was competitively priced against neighbouring beachfront restaurants (that is, they are all overpriced but if you want to eat on the beach you have to pay). Around 250-800 per main at dinner time with 500-baht BBQ special and 900bth Thai buffet. Wine is expensive - from 2k baht per bottle. Good 'wellness' food selection. Also plenty of restaurants off the beach within walking distance that are good and not as expensive. Service was friendly and professional - as you would expect. Everyone had a smile and wanted to chat. Nothing was too much trouble. The spa services are expensive - 2.2k baht for a foot massage. Locally it's 350 baht. (Not that the two products compare, but 2.2k baht is nearly USD 65.) If I had to nitpick, drinks took a while to mix as the bar looked understaffed at happy hour. Room totally comfortable and plush, clean, *yuge* shower, no toothbrush or comb (I forgot mine). Good shampoo + conditioner. Mosquito repellent provided. 0.9m pool on terrace with jets to chill out in. No privacy, really, but nice green garden outlook w tropical trees and flowers. (room 60) Nothing to complain about except we wish we had more time. The beach was clean and ocean calm with a little surf at times. Plenty of loungers and you could reserve them and get lounger service. Pools were nice - the kids one was best, with a swim up bar and jets. Actually quite a few families with younger children here and elsewhere on the beach (it's far, far away from the party beach areas). Best bits: beachfront position + wining/dining on the beach, pool, gardens, shower, bed, complimentary gin/vodka/whiskey (mixers 100 baht each).
"Simply wonderful <3"
Its a little paradise on the Island Koh Phangan. Not too big. Beautiful design, architecture and wonderful staff...we will come back for sure. Thank you so much for the unforgettable stay. See you in 2018
"Fantastic hotel in a fantastic location"
Thing I liked most: the location. Perfect combination of relaxed beach vibe (avoiding the crowds of the full moon party on the opposite side of the island) but also having a cracking little village next to it with some great restaurants and bars. If like us you're looking for a more low key side of Koh Phangan to stay on whilst still having some bars and restaurants to visit near by then this is the place. Room (ocean view pool suite) was perfect and did what it says on the tin with a view of the beach! If I could be critical I would say the food at the hotel's lunchtime Bistro restaurant was very average. This didn't matter too much though as we went to all the local places surrounding the hotel. Tip: have a massage at the Tanaporn massage place which is excellent and only a couple of mins from the hotel.
