"Luxury family holiday"
Fantastic 5 star hotel with luxury villas and apartments. Perfectly suited to those who enjoy holidaying with their kids without sacrificing on luxury accommodation. Situated away from the madding crowds on Phukets longest beach is this stylish hotel. Just 15 min from the airport. Convenient transfer to all attractions and activities, and the most comfortable accommodation. Beautiful setting. Good restaurants. Many well kept amenities.

"A romantic get away.."
Everything about our stay was perfect except for one issue. The hotel owns all the stores and shops in the area. The food prices and gift prices are are fixed and VERY high. Example: A hamburger sells for $14.00. Other than feeling ripped off in this area our stay was perfect. The beach is a 10 minute walk from the property and is very private and scenic.

"Excellent hotel"
We arrived late evening to a warm welcome had two rooms booked. We were upgraded with one of our rooms which was nice. All staff were very friendly and more than helpful. Best to organize your own taxi service as it is cheaper, you can negotiate a price with the taxi driver before leaving and if happy you can get the same taxi driver for the rest of your stay. Best to book your own sight seeing trips as well. The buffet breakfast was fantastic every morning, the pool and happy hour poolside was great and the beach was beautiful, just swim between the flags and it was safe. All in all fabulous stay.

"A deluxe experiece"
We stayed in the hotel for 3 nighs but we arrived in the small hours for 1st day, we needed to stay in the lobby and waited till next morning after any room had vacancy. It was quite uncomfortable as the lobby was in an open area, no fan and quite hot. Also, many flies and mosquito were flying around. Which is quite annoying. The next 3 nights are happy moment. The room is so big, which can live for 4 people, the faciliites are all well prepared. You can even cook and wash clothes here. There is a bathtub in the bathroom, the bed is king-size. With a nice view which can see the pool and the whole resort. One thing to be mentioned is that this hotel is far away from town center, it takes 1 hour for one way trip, and the transportation fee in Phuket is expensive.

"Great resort but not at a great location"
Great stay. The room is very tidy. The decor is relaxing. The pool is clean and not overcrowded. However, there are not enough amenities if you want to spend your whole trip in the resort. The hotel is not at a great location. It is about 1 hour drive to Patong. Nothing special to check out in the vicinity.

"Wonderful staff and lovely rooms"
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.

"Highly recomended"
We had a two bedroom poolside apartment but had not expected our own private pool. The apartment was very nicely furnished with two en-suite bathrooms, three TVs with DVD players and a well equipped kitchen with washing machine and drier. The grounds are beautifully laid out and the beach is just ten minutes walk through the complex. There are gift shops,coffee shops and a bar across the street and a supermarket five minutes drive away. I would recommend renting a car as it is not near to a town.

This hotel is quite new. Location is not that good if you are planning to visit the Phuket Town, however it is only 15-20 mins away from the airport. Hotel services were great but there are on site sales trying to get you to their sales presentation which is a bit annoying. I heard those are high pressured sales presentation selling their membership. They will try to get you attend one by offering you free trips, transfers or spa vouchers etc...

"Not sure if I'd stay again"
I stayed in a 2BR pool villa recently. When I booked on this site, I was not aware/informed that the property was in soft launch stage. Construction was half done. Also, correspondence with the hotel staff suggested we'd be having breakfast at JW Mariott as the restaurant is not built yet. However, the counter staff vehemently denies this despite email proof and was arguing with me over semantics. Breakfast was served at Bill Bentley, which is rather horrid if this was truly a 5 star property. Despite being new, light fixtures were not working. The side table was broken. In all, don't stay here until they've sorted themselves out.

Dear Alvin Thank you for your comments and I am glad to announce that Anantara Vacation Club is now 100% complete including our restaurant 'Chaam'. Our wood-fired pizza sala 'Crust' is also operational so now there is not need to utilise our neighbours for a dining venue. I do hope you choose to stay with us again as I look forward to offering you an unforgettable dining experience. Thank you Lyndon Ellis General Manager

"High-end location.....remote spot away from crowds"
Anantara offered a very high end stay in Thalang which is about the only quite beach in Phuket. The facilities are top notch, especially with access to the Anantara hotel directly across the street which offered many restaurants and a fabulous beachside pool and patio. It is very remote here though which we found a blessing compared to the rest of Thailand which is very busy and very crowded. The Marriot next door also offers many services as well. The only caution we make is that the complex is still under construction so at times it was a bit noisy, but given the beach and pools you won't hardly be in your room anyways.

The hotel is great and the environment is excellent. The rooms are very clean and the staff are always very helpful. However the location of the hotel is a bit far from the Phuket town and Patong beach. You may need to take a shuttle bus (250B per person, one way) for about 50-60 minutes to get to Phuket town. But the hotel is really good and make you feel relaxing. I would highly recommend.

Stedet overgår beskrivelsen på hjemmesiden. Der er noget for alle aldersgrupper og perfekt til familier med større børn. Vi havde 2 drenge med på 14 og 16 år, og de kedede sig ikke. Meget afslappende og roligt hotel, uden at være kedeligt. Lækker pool, god strand og fantastisk mad. Kæmpe ros til hotel personalet, som var meget servicemindede. Især tak til pool bartenderen Nice, som var behjælpelig med diverse anbefalinger af udflugter og oplevelser i området. (ATV, elefant ridning, bådtur o.s.v.)

"Nice stay in a nice resort"
05/02/16 66pat Bangkok, Thailand
Nice stay, nice resort, nice spacious room, nice staff... its managed by anantara so everything is nice and no reason to get disappointed. The location is a bit far from everything, you really need to have your own transportation otherwise it can be pretty boring after 2 days. The hotel is not really on the beach, to acceed you need to cross the anantara villa which is like another resort. The main negative point to was the breakfast, which could be even better for a top 5 stars.

"Best Vacations in Phuket!"
05/01/16 fabd8 Los Angeles, California
It was my first stay at the Anantara Vacation Club (15 min drive to Phuket Airport) and I was there for a week with my husband. It is located in a secluded area but was ideal for relaxation. The grounds were beautiful and created a homey feel. I stayed in a one-bedroom condo in the main building with west exposure. The unit was very spacious, modern, tastefully decorated and clean. I thought there were a couple of utensils in the kitchen and also a coffee machine missing. It was great otherwise having a full kitchen to cook and washer/dryer to do the laundry. The resort was really quiet when we stayed there and often time, we’d have the pool or the gym (well equipped) to ourselves. David, who was working there was very friendly. There was also a movie night at the pool organized twice a week. There is also a restaurant on-site and we used it for breakfast lunch and dinner. The food was tasty and the menu had a large selection. Overall, the staff was very attentive and made our stay very comfortable, while helping us to schedule a shipment overseas with DHS, booking some excursions to Phi Phi Islands, and shows in Patong with a shuttle to pick us up (one hour drive). I have compared with other excursion providers nearby and the hotel wasn’t overcharging us and made it really easy to enjoy what the area has to offer. There is a shopping mall (Turtle Village) across the street which charges US prices so beware of the supermarket at the basement ($30 for 6 pack beers), but the only one available and packed up with everything needed during a stay. The beach is only 5 minutes walk through the sister’s resort Anantara Villas, which is another gorgeous place. The beach is unspoiled for miles in each direction and the warm water was clean but can be rough sometimes. Near the beach, locals were providing Thai massages for 500 Bath, delicious coconut juice for 50 bath and two restaurants were serving fresh local food for an unbeatable price and experience. Our last night was spent at the sister resort’s restaurant La Sala and the waitress Salmone made our night with her kindness, generosity and fun energy. We shared our love for vegetarian food and spirituality. All in all, I had the best vacations in Phuket at the Anantara. On the last day it was even a little difficult to leave after such good times there!

You are not going to be disappointed with the size of the Villas. Large and with a proper private pool you really can chill out. If you want to interact with other guest then the main pool is large. Great staff and service standards are outstanding. Each morning we would take the free bikes (come with a safety seat for kids) and head down to the beach which is all of 5 mins bike ride away. We had a 9 day break and loved it. We only had breakfast at the hotel restaurant twice, but again it was plentiful and very well presented. All in all, hard to fault.

"Close to Great Beach, but Far from Phuket Town"
04/22/16 balinesian Jacksonville, Florida
We stayed at Anantara Vacation Club as elite owners of Hilton Grand Vacations Club. This was our 4th location in our world tour (French Polynesia, Australia, Bali, Thailand, Tuscany). After staying at the wonderful Anantara Vacation Club property in Bali with an open-air villa and private pool, we were quite disappointed to be assigned a suite in their tall building. We checked with the front desk to see if this was the correct room vice a villa with a pool (note 6,800 club pts for Bali vice 9,500 club pts for Thailand). Long story short, after 2 nights in the building, we were moved to a fabulous villa with a private pool, but apparently we were not supposed to have been moved. Nonetheless, we thoroughly enjoyed the new accommodations, and certainly made good use of pool and spacious villa. It was a short, shady walk to a fabulous beach. We practically had the beach to ourselves! Our only wish was that we could have utilized the facilities at the Anantara Hotel on the beach. We were refused service at the pool bar after identifying ourselves as Anantara Vacation Club travelers and giving our room number. Really?? After leaving the beach, there was a fresh-water shower so the walk back was comfortable. The breakfasts (2 for 1 for owners at that time) were fabulous. They had an international spread so that you could try all different foods, fresh fruits, breads, etc. The service was also very good. We enjoyed sitting outside on the veranda every morning. We ate a couple of dinners at this restaurant, as they had huge seafood special nights. In addition, it was very convenient to be able to walk to Turtle Village for an ATM, shopping at the small grocery market, and other shopping and dining venues. We were busy sampling local rums and wines. We had fun sitting at the pool bar in the community pool, meeting other travelers, and some of the staff. In particular, we enjoyed talking with Ayu who works at the Teen Center. During this conversation, we talked about my husband's birthday which was the following day, and would you know a wonderful tropical cake with fruit was delivered to our villa! What a nice surprise! We also joined the Thai iced tea demonstration, and had a fun time. Our excursions included going to the weekend market in Phuket Town (mostly flea market stuff, not the handicrafts I was hoping to find), James Bond Island (fabulous tour with ALP), tour around the peninsula including a cashew farm and other farm demonstrations, and Phi Phi Early Bird (disappointing tour with Luxury Vacation).

"My Favourite Home Away From Home"
04/17/16 AussiExpatinHongKong Bangkok, Thailand
Just back from a weekend get-a-way to my favourite resort in Phuket. My 13 year old loved the new activities and the addition of the Teen Zone. I couldn't get him off the trampoline. The Villa provided the perfect hideaway to recharge and relax, peppered only with short visits to the main pool to drink cocktails and watch the sun go down. A highlight was the turtle release which saw 14 baby turtles released back into the Ocean after having been raised by the turtle conservation unit in Mai Khao. Totally recommend this Resort for families with kids.
