    Maybe the best value for money luxury option in PhuketFirst things first: I love Thai food. Real Thai food. And Anantara is great at that. The dishes were authentic, spicy and real. The menu is long enough to eat in the restaurant twice a day for a week without getting bored, but not so long the quality suffered. I have been a Thai food fan for years and this is the best resort I've tried as far as food goes. And then the privacy: The resort is small-ish. You can be private without issues. The very, very nice private laguna beach only caters a small group of people, the pool is the same and of course, I could be totally on my own in my private pool villa. The staff was fantastic. Personal and friendly and attentive without being "used car salesmen". A few less positive observations: If you want to use the south of the island this is not the best location. My villa would benefit from a brush-up, especially the patio. But all in all, if you want a near-luxury experience with good value for money I find Anantara to be the place.

    Beautiful ”

    We really enjoyed our stay, particularly the cuisine at Zuma and upgraded to a beachfront villa which was lovely, on beach but no beach view. The staff were great, thanks to special staff Cece, Meena and Noomnim. Place is remote so the town Naithon Beach Is pretty great to spend a day with lots of restaurants and shops but you have to taxi to/fro. Hotel offers a shuttle to other town but it has no beach, is pretty ugly hot and you wonder why they drop you off there!!!!!

    Service, Breakfast, Decorations

    A Luxury Resort with Great Service. Excellent food quality of the buffet breakfast. The environment is great. But one point I think they can be improve is the waiters who serve the breakfast always forget which table they have been served or not after they asked you to get tea or coffee. I kept asking them to have the tea and juice for few times but they still forget it. Anyway, the overall of Anantara Phuket Layan is still great.

    Outstanding Hotel just 30 min from the airport, great to have few days to relax. We were really impressed by all the staff in the hotel, extremely friendly and helpful. The Hotel has the best breakfast buffet we have ever seen in a 5 start hotel with a great selection of food, all presented into detail. Both restaurants (Thai and International) were extraordinary. There is nothing we could complain about.

    Superb stay in this amazing hotel! The room is very big, with a nice balcony and great amenities (nespresso machine, apple TV, toileteries, etc). The 2 pools are great, with the spa pool being quieter for some relaxing time. Great service of all staff as well. The amazing food has played a great part in this relaxing weekend! Delicious food from both restaurants (the appetizers are just amazing!!) and the breakfast is definitely 5-star, with so many healthy options! We loved the whole experience! This Anantara is definitely better than the vacation club in Mai Khao, we definitely recommend it to traveller!

    I have to say, if you expected to stay in a very luxury hotel, Anantara Layan is not. But if you crave for good services and nice food, this is your choice! The location of the resort is pretty remote, but then it gives you a quiet environment, right? and the food served in both restaurant are lovely with reasonable price, which is highly recommended. And the staff are just lovely, they care you all the way, and honestly, they are so sweet to notice your needs from time to time!

    Very good”

    A luxury hotel, a 5-star service! Well kept, full of green. We arrived at the villa with the pool we ordered, but the air conditioner made noises so we slept only one night and we were upgraded to a huge and amazing Sala villa with a larger pool! The rooms are very well kept, well maintained, and twice a day they arrive to clean. In retrospect, there is really no need for a pool in the room, there are two huge pools in the hotel and almost empty. The sea itself is not very beautiful, it is clean but in the afternoon there is a depression and there is no sea at all, it is not blue, more green. A point to improve - their air conditioners in the rooms - make noises and do not work all the time, cool off and then take a break and then you get up at night sweating. In addition - very dark throughout the hotel and outside the room, there is not enough lighting and it is very dangerous! In the restaurant you can hardly see what you eat. In conclusion - an amazing hotel!

    Breakfast was included with my Pool Villa and both the food and the room were amazing. Breakfast was the best buffet Ive ever had. There were sufficient Vegan or plant-based options during breakfast. Room was comfortable and the private pool very nice. Location is good and is not far from most tours. I think location is comfortable even if you go all the way north or south of Phuket. Staff was the best during my stay in Thailand.

    Fabulous!!”

    Beautiful resort with a pool overlooking the sea. Beach facilities are very good like the beach beds/ availability of staff/ etc, though the beach is not very good- it is not for swimming. But amazing views and other facilities, cover up for everything. Breakfast spread needs a special mention. Rooms are just as amazing as you expect. Only hiccup is the wifi. The staff will keep telling you that IT team is working on it- but it will never happen. So, ask for a separate route which they happily provide. Gym and pool is just outstanding. Bagghi is available at a moment's notice. The resort manager is very sweet and polite. This resort is meant for those who need a peaceful beach holiday away from the nightlife and jostle of patong. Travel is not easy - only resort taxis are available which is 5 times of usual taxi price. I have mentioned all pros and cons , but overall this resort is just fabulous!! Worth money spent...
