Big thank you to the brilliant staff at Anantara Rasananda Koh Phangan, I travelled with my girlfriend as we are on honeymoon trip and it would not have been possible if without them.!! When we arrived and enter to the reception there are staffs came to approached and greeting me also helper to carry are luggage. There was a real sense of sincere appreciation in the warm welcome from everyone that helped us settle in. I also share the staff that we are here for honeymoon and requested special bed decoration for my girlfriend which is for my surprise have exceeded my expectation by assigning a private villa for me and this extraordinary service continued through my stay in exceeding my requested!! Especially big thank to K.Sun ,K.Aom at Edge2O bar, K.Tua &K.Akma at the Bistro rest, K. Pair and K. Lek at the front office (they have been done the great job) and K. Sam the driver. Also all staff I couldn't remember the name. Thx alot
It would be a mistake not to stay here, one of the best beachside luxury hotels I have ever experienced. The staff are warm, attentive and go the extra mile for all their guests. The beach itself is stunning, and the rooms are spacious and very well appointed. Thank you Anantara Rasanada, we will be back again!
I had such a good time with my girlfriend”
It was really a 5 stars hotel. Excellent resorts. It was so beautiful. Service was really good, breakfasts are amazing, lots of choices and delicious. The materials decorating the suite were top notch. I like their interior designs. We hire a motorcycle and went on day trips ourselves. Spent the nights in the resorts. Extremely comfortable. Strongly recommended.
Dear Nattpong, Thank you very much for staying with us and your review. We are delighted to see that you enjoyed your holidays at our resort. The decor and materials are very special and very carefully selected, indeed. We hope to welcome you back in the future! My warmest regards, Yiannis Kosmas Resort Manager
Amazing 3 Nights”
Had an awesome stay, service was unbelievable and the food was amazing also. Love that in a short walk out the front doors you can find cheaper options for dining and drinks, unlike some hotels where you can only eat at the hotel. Room was large and clean. Will definitely stay here again.
Wow - what a lovely room!”
Lived up to it's 5 star rating. Was there on honeymoon and they made up the room very well and gave us a comp bottle of fiz! I ate both nights in this hotel and the food was very nice. Breakfast was decent also. I was on my honeymoon and they made the room up and as it was my birthday when I was there also they made me a cake. Made to feel very welcome. Only thing with 5 star hotels is they tend to like to try and rip you off, price of drinks, trips, taxis etc. Probably teaching my grannies to suck eggs but I just arrange all of these things out with the hotel.... The small village beside the hotel has places to eat also and several bars. I didnt hire a bike here as the roads are a bit too much up and down roller coaster for my liking. All in all, enjoyed my stay.
A little bit of paradise”
From the moment you arrived the attention to detail was of a very personal nature and welcoming. The location of the hotel is an island paradise, the layout of the hotel has been carefully planned, and the gardens are stunning. he rooms offer absolute privacy with your own pool and small garden, the rooms are fully equipped and serviced twice a day, a range of drinks are provided free daily and the turdown service also provides a Thai sweet with a note from the chef. Breakfast offers a full selection to meet all tastes and you can sit al fresco overlooking the palm fringed bay. Hotel managers, head chef talk to guests on a daily basis to ensure guests needs are met. The hotel also offers a meet and greet service from the airport and transfer by speedboat.
a perfect relaxing stay”
the friendliness of the staff, the room, the food, the spa and the whole service I had was well worth the price I paid for it. I was amazed about the many extras which came together with the package, like free wifi, free drinks, snacks in the room,... definitely a place well worth to come back.
We loved our stay in the Rasananda resort. We were travelling with our 1,5 year old boy and the staff couldn't have been more perfect with him. The beach is very beautiful and safe for small children. It was our second time in Thailand, we've been to Phuket, Koh Samui, Koh Tao and Kog Phangan and the Rasananda was the best resort we've stayed in, and not even the most expensive!
We had a fantastic very romantic weekend in the Rasananda Phangan. The hotel is by far one of the most tastefully done setups I have stayed at. Our intention was to go and party at the full moon party but we ended up staying at our beach villa watching the full moon from our pool sala. The following day we had a very good breakfast in the beach restaurant followed by a couple of cocktails at the pool bar. The rest of the day we just spend at the beach and the villa. All over it has been a great time and we are looking forward to our next stay.
very nice hotel”
I would recomend any one to who would like to enjoy this part of thialand to coem over and enjoy in this hotel. The best thing about it is that its located on an amazing beach which lets you enjoy a peace of mind yet at the same time offers you excess to all that you would like if you want some excitement such as water sport and land activity of allmkinds. The one thing that I personaly didn't enjoy from the hotel is that over service that the staff in the hotel provide which gives an uncofortable feeling at times which is way to formal for a hotel in thialand....
Piece of Heaven”
We stayed in one of the Ocean View Pool Villas over December 2016 (No 11). If you want you own piece of heaven, right at the beach (20 meters then you in the sea) with lots of space (m2)) then look no further and make a booking. The Ocean View Pool Villas are spacious with all amenities you require. If you have Apple devices, you have access to Apple TV to sit through any rainy day, when going to the beach is not an option or when you have seen what the island can offer. The breakfast in the mornings are good enough to satisfy all tastes. Breakfast is served on a sand floor, so don't be surprised when you arrive. Be aware that you are in a jungle environment and bugs (mosquitoes and the like) are everywhere. The resort offers a spray, but it is recommended to bring your own as well. The nearby village is really close, approximately 200 meters from the resort. The are numerous ATM's with little family run restaurants that serve authentic Thai food at reasonable prices. There are also two or three supermarkets that sell all essential goods. Overall the Anantara Rasananda Koh Phangan Villas can be recommended.
If you're looking to feel pampered, this is the right place for you!”
I travelled here with my partner for my birthday weekend. The staff made us feel at home and totally pampered from the get go. And they even surprised me with a birthday slice of cheesecake at breakfast the next day, it was amazing how they were using some sort of facial recognition system to keep a track of who we were! The whole experience staying at this hotel was truly delightful. I have nothing but great memories of this trip. A special thanks to everyone of the staff we met at the Anantara Rasananda!
5 stars perfect”
perfect hotel, location & staff, Highly recommened. Little pricey but you get what you pay for. Would recommend staying here for approx 3 nights. Only thing i would like at the hotel is lights round the pool after bar has closed so guest can see where they are walking it would be helpful. Also transfer back getting off boat was not very good should of been some kind of steps or something which there was not. Apart from that perfect.
W have stayed in a lot of five start hotels over the years, in Asia and in Europe, and this was absolutely the best we have ever experienced. There really wasn't much wrong. We couldn't afford the sea-view villas, but it didn't matter - the room had a pool and it was really peaceful and cool. The attention to detail was really impressive. The beach itself is much more beautiful than the western side, and quiet compared to the southern. There were activities prepared for guests which were well-organized and a lot of fun. And the breakfast was just fine! Out the front of the hotel is a pretty little walking street with cheap local food which was really interesting to explore.
Tucked away paradise”
Hands down the most beautiful spa I have ever seen. The services were great as well. Be aware that if you're flying into Koh Samui, you'll need to take a ferry (45 min) and then a taxi (30 min) to get to this hotel. I absolutely loved our stay there - we traveled with an infant. If you bring a child, I would recommend that he/she is slightly older and is able to more around by themselves (the hotel and surrounding areas are not stroller-friendly). It's a quiet, peaceful and beautiful hotel on the beach that is idea for relaxing. There are a handful of restaurants within walking distance but otherwise you'd need to travel by car to get to other parts of the island (which we did not do). The staff were amazing - very friendly and attentive. Breakfast (included in the price of our room) was fantastic. The restaurant at the hotel, although pricey, served delicious food. I will definitely return for some relaxation!
Hotel itself is absolutely perfectly located - facing to the beautiful beach. Staff was really helpful and friendly - it is huge advantage of this place, however in general in Thailand service in hotels is on very high level (comparing to Europe). The only disadvantage is meal service - breakfasts are rather poor as for 5 stars (we compared that to other hotels we stayed in - Shangri-La, Santhiya, Regent, etc...). Lunch and dinner menu is highly overpriced and has rather poor quality, therefore quality / value ratio is not that excellent... Good thing that there are some good bars and restaurants in very close distance, so it's not that big issue. In general, mainly due to beautiful location, we are willing to come back there.
A gorgeous luxury oasis on a lovely beach cove”
It was our fourth visit to the Anantara Rasananda in 3 years, and we loved it as always. The aesthetic is just beautiful, and service and food the best on the island. What keeps us coming back apart from the obviously super comfortable rooms, beautifully manicured grounds and gorgeous pool area, is the service. One feels that the Rasananda holds to extremely high standards but more than that, the staff seem clearly happy to be there. Everyone (especially the dining service manager, Tuang, and the new beach attendant Athien) was genuinely warm, happy, and took pride in ensuring guests have a great time. It feels like a beautiful home away from home, where we don't say goodbye, but "see you soon".
Paradise on Earth”
I can't speak highly enough about this place, you feel like you've given yourself over to Anantara's care and they take you on a journey of relaxation which is truly unforgettable. This trip was my second, it certainly won't be my last!
Amazing, classy hotel with impeccable service.”
The Anantara Rasananda is in a class of its own as a beachfront resort. Every detail of the hotel has clearly been designed with taste and thought, and the grounds are beautifully maintained. It was our fourth time there and we booked an Ocean garden pool villa which has a daybed right on the beach, the view is just amazing and the room itself is again, really well designed and comfortable. It isn't cheap - but it's real value. The food at the hotel is of a really high standard along with the best breakfast spread on the island - the chef will ask you to have one of their fresh crab / smoked salmon Benedict breakfasts, and he's right, you must! What rounds off the Rasananda experience is really its staff. There is so much pride, joy and initiative they bring to every interaction, that you just know you're somewhere special. These guys are real pros - we can't wait to go back!
If you're willing to splash out then go for it!”
All in all what you would expect for the high price. However, there could have been more variety at breakfast and more hot options for vegetarians. As in all 5 star hotels, the prices inside the hotel are highly exaggerates, including the spa, which we would have liked to use, but couldn't justify, after splashing out so much on our stay there. However, there are plenty of cheaper food and spa options in the area. The staff were fantastic and we enjoyed the bottle of champagne given to us for our honeymoon stay.
