"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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"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.

Hotel has super potential, however it is still under construction, !!! Construction workers everywhere, dining room not yet built, pool completed on the day we left. Maybe by summer 2013 it will be ready and very high classGenuine Expedia guest review
Response by Anantara Vacation Club Phuket Mai Khao Dear Cat Thank you for taking the time to write . Iam glad to advise that all facilities were completed in June and we are now full speed ahead! We look forward to seeing you here again soon. Take care Lyndon
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.

"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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Anantara Vacation Club Phuket Mai Khao 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.

"Fantastisk dejligt sted."
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.) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Luxury stay! Quality family time!"
09/29/14 Rachel W Singapore, Singapore
I like the architecture of the hotel. First time stay in pool villa hotel :) My kids loved it so much that they kept running around. The swimming pool is not big but enough for my kids to have fun. The pizza in the restaurant is so nice!!!! My kids love it so much and they ate a lot... We enjoyed this experience so much that we would definitely choose Anantara villa again!!

I just want to say the hotel doesn't worth the price! There is a big construction just near our bedroom. The air-condition has very big noise that make us can not sleep well. What surprising us most is, after the rain, our bedroom was full of water! We had closed the window but the rain just inside our room! Now you can see how bad quality the house is! Besides the hardware, the service also not satisfying! The people in the breakfast restaurant didn't smile at all. You know it is in Thailand - a smile country! And the location is also bad, very far from the city center and far from the beach. You have to cross another hotel then you can reach the beach! What is the worst is the sales person in Anantara! We attended a 90 min presentation( acctually 2 and half hour) and after that we book a package for our next trip to bali. Since we had already book the air ticket, we checked again and again with the sales Jessie if the room is available during that time. Jessie was quite sure that it has room. Then we pay the money. But just after 3 days, when we wrote email to her to book the room. She told us that the room is all booked! Just in the 3 days! Can you believe that?! It's cheated! I don't believe the rooms after 6 months would all be booked in three days! And she seems not willing to help us solve this problem at all! I was so disappointed with the hotel and would not recommend you go there!

We went there 6-9 September and we stayed at 2 bedroom suites unit and we stayed at the 6 floor (top floor). The welcoming committee and checkin was smooth and they are very accommodating, the view from the unit was excellent, we get to see the pool and the sea at the same time and away from construction......it has a good size balcony with a day bed and out door sitting. Bedroom size is decent as it can fit a double bed and they can covert the sofa into 2 extra bed for free...... We were traveling with young children and since they have a schedule children activity, it's a plus point for us......free bicycle to rent and we can cycle to the beach thru Anantara villa less than 10 minutes..... The food was nice and they have a 1 on 1 in one of the restaurant during happy hour but I missed that as I was away exploring the island..... Unfortunately it's moon soon, the wave is quite high and strong.......so we just enjoy the scenery there. The unit can use some enhancement like repair the wooden flooring, make sure the light bulbs are working and checking the door locks in the bedroom, overall AVC is doing a great job........we'll done AVC
"Perfect family holiday - veg family"
09/03/14 Ferrari E
Amazing Accommodation, location, staff and amenities. You are very well looked after from the time you reach the location. Large rooms and living space. Food however is expensive in the resort. Turtle village has a few restaurants to get by. The turtle mini mart is expensive too. We are a vegetarian family and have very limited places to eat. We found a banana and sweet potato fritter maker just outside the hotel next to turtle village. His wife cooks meals and delivers to your hotel. Amazing food at a very reasonable price. She cooked veg food for us which was not in her menu. Ordered yellow veg curry, stir fry rice and veg noodles. Enjoyed thoroughly. Any one want to take advantage of this home made delicious food message me. Not sure if I am allowed to post numbers on trip advisor.

Our trip began at the hustle and bustle of Patong Beach and continued to the tranquility of Ananthara Vacation Club. We stayed at the 1-bedroom pool villa. As we entered the villa, we knew that this will be a great vacation. I love the fact that every little detail of the villa is made to perfection - jacuzzi, outdoor shower, in house pool, kitchen, doors, TV, towels. The service of the staff has been excellent. My wife accidentally slipped and fell down in our bedroom and one of the friendly staff Mr. Pop went out of his way by bringing a nurse from a nearby hospital just to check on my wife. I love it that you can wake up, slide the door and jump into the pool. I also love the space, plenty of it. The bed is very comfortable. When I plan to come here, I plan to spend my time relaxing in Anantara. If I wanted other than that I would stay near Patong Beach. I rarely go on a luxury vacation, so I forgot how good it is. This is luxury. I will definitely come again soon. Thank you very much for your hospitality, Mr Pop, Ms Mam and Mr Ing. You guys are the best!
"Good Place and Good Service"

Bedroom is clean and comfortable, the stafff are nice and helpful. The hotel is near Turtle Market and the beach. The beach has several small shops for eat. I have booked at promotion price and.worth for it.
"An Express version of Anantara"
the room is spacious and well designed, it has everything you need to escape in a quiet beautiful resort and yet feel like in your own home. The lightning in room are romantic. The bed are extremely comfortable. Most of the staff are polite and friendly,the fitness trainer is great and made my day. Breakfast have limited choice and quite a few flies stop at the food. The club is new so some part still under construction. The opposite Anantara resort and spa is big and beautiful. As we've bought the trial membership of Anantara Vacation Club, A staff called me few days before our holiday to ask me if we required any assistants and offered to arrange late checkout for us since our flight is at mid night. As their member, we do have some vip privilege such as late check out at 3pm if room available. on the 2nd day during our stay, the sales staff that trying to sell us their long term membership also offered help us to arrange a shower room prior to our leaving as it's raining everyday in Phuket. We didn't purchase their membership immediately on that day but we're quite happy with such caring service rendered and we're seriously considering to purchase it next day. Nobody ever call us again but we believe everything has been arranged well already. However we received the call from Front desk until 11am++ on our leaving day that our room is assigned to the new guest so we must leave on 12pm. Since we all the time thought the late check out been arranged so not prepared to it at all. The guest service told us they will check for us, then about 12:40 they called us again said we have to leave at 1pm. What a irresponsible manner, We don't mind check out at normal time but since 2 club staff said will arrange it for us previously, at least informing us the situation and let us plan it earlier on a heavy raining afternoon, not just like nothing happened and forget it at all. Anyway we're disappointed to have this experience to end my happy holiday. This is still a good resort overall but lack of service oriented and the club owner feeling. Glad that we not commit the long term membership yet.

My husband booked this resort for the family: 2 adults and 2 kids (teens) for our annual vacation. I had hired a car to drive around Phuket. (So easy to get around in a car in Phuket)Anyway arrived at Anantara in the afternoon and the service was friendly and accommodating. We stayed in an apartment on 2nd Floor. The living space was spacious and the good thing was that it had a washer and dryer. Drying the clothes on the balcony was never dry at all, no sun in that direction but I used the washer and dryer and it made a huge difference. We stayed at this resort for 4D/3N. The staff and service was good and friendly and the staff made you feel welcome. This resort does not front a beach so we went through JW Marriott resort which was down the road to get access to the beach. This area of accommodation was a bit isolated from the beach and surf but anyway we enjoyed our stay there.
"Great for a relaxing, quiet, peaceful short vacation"
08/13/14 Jean_Chuayp Singapore, Singapore
I was there for 4D3N and was at villa 716. The villa was near the children playground, gym and bicycle rental which they are all together and also the public pool area. It a very nice resort if you would just like to chill and relax in your villa or room. You could rent their bicycle and cycle to the beach nearby, they provide a decent Trek mountain bike, they do have normal bicycles with toddler seat and kids bicycle as well. We love their kitchen, it's fully equipped with all cooking utensils and bowls n plates. They had a microwave, washing machine, dryer all by Electrolux which I'm using the same at home. As the food is kinda pricy, you could consider buying some groceries in town if u happen to b there and u could cook some simple dishes back in your villa. Our villa heated was spoiled for the first 2 days but the duty manager make a very fast service recovery by allowing us to extend our stay in the villa for 1 more night when they try to fix the heater problem (we supposed to stay 2 nights on a villa and 1 night on the apartment suite). They provide great services and staff was all very friendly. Everything was great except for the location. It take us about 1 hour to get to Patong beach which cost appx 1000 baht by taxi (1 way) and 1 and a half hour to big buddha which cost about appx 2400 baht (2 way). I would not recommend this place if you would like to play sea water activities, drinking at a stretch of bars, shopping and with many peoples around. This vacation club is more private, lesser people,more relaxing, quiet place. It's good if you would just like to spend time bonding with your family/friends as it's a quiet and peaceful environment.
08/12/14 Susanne H Whyalla, Australia
My husband and i spent a week here and it was excellant. Staff were very, very nice, friendly and polite. General manager Jonathan went out of his way to help, very friendly man, he greeted us whenever we saw him and even arranged for packaging for art work we bought in a gallery that was not wrapped correctly for travelling. rooms were nice, pool in our villa was a little difficult for a short person to get in and out of needs a couple of steps. Overall visit was great, location ia also very good. no complaints about our stay,would we go back, yes to this place, very relaxed when we left.
