From our first welcome to our sad departure everything was excellent, only two slight. Negatives 1 pricing in resort was the equivalent of what you would expect to pay in Australia,
you expect that so not really a negative. 2 we tried the activities on the resort I.e. The archery was good but the equipment was very worn. All that said who uses this when you are on a holiday in Thailand at the beach?! All in all the best resort and staff I have ever experienced THANK YOU
Food is excellent but you want to change to try other restaurants in town. The problem is that the hotel staff is not helping the customers to get the reasonable charged taxi ride at all. It's quite difficult to get around if you want to visit the town 10mins nearby which is big minus, when the taxi mafia around the hotel tried to rip you off with 800 BHT per trip to the town.
Had a fantastic stay here. Staff are lovely and Steve the guest liaison was very helpful with local information. Chalong itself is relatively unspoiled, much nicer than the larger resorts such as Kata and Karon. The hotel is in a fantastic position overlooking the sea and while you can't swim on the beach the sea pool is lovely and very clean.
For the price it's a neat hotel with a very good location with about 10 mnts walking distance to Patong Beach and Bangla Road.If you are looking for a place just to crash in the night I totally recommend this.
"It's was most relaxing warm staff quiet just Bliss"

Food great loved being escorted around in buggys could not have walked those hills

I had a wonderful time at Anantara but the staff were what made the trip truly excellent.
I gifted this trip to my mother for her birthday but on the very first day of our travels she tripped over and twisted her knee while we were exploring Turtle Village, the small shopping centre across the road. I dashed across to the hotel where the kind staff organised a golf buggy to come and collect her and take us back to our room. They then sent a first aid officer to help us and offered to call a nurse. Periodically over our entire stay the first aid officer would call in on us to check on her healing knee and even rigged up a walking stick to help her get around. The hotel manager even called us to check everything was ok.
Other staff were wonderful as well; with the morning server at the breakfast sala (buffet) always greeting us with a smile and remembering our drink orders from the previous day.
The hotel itself is beautiful, with a wonderful pool, comfortable beds (I was tempted to steal the pillows) and a giant bath you can truly sink into.
The big draw back is the location. It is a 10- 15 min walk to the beach which isn't great in the heat and the hotel, while close to the airport (20mins away), is at least 45mins from the tourist attractions that may draw you to Phuket in the first place. If you're after peace and quiet this is the perfect place for you and if you don't mind the drive, taxi's are usually cheap and will wait up to 4hrs for you if you want to explore.
This is our first family vacation after 3 years, and we were pleasantly surprised that we were provided with a nice garden villa. Facilities are clean and "safe" for toddlers to roam around. Just have to watch out for the buggies moving about, although we noticed that they do stop when they saw our two toddlers approaching. Overall its ok place to bring your toddlers over for vacation.
