"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.

"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.

"Comfortable beds"
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.

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.)

"A truly lovely resort!"
01/26/16 802happytraveler Yorba Linda, California
My family and I finished up a two week "first time" visit to Thailand at this resort. Our first week we visited Bangkok and Chiang Mai seeing everything we possibly could. By the time we got to the resort we were very tired. From the very beginning our stay at Anantara everything was wonderful. There are seven adults in our family. All with different expectations. We did a yoga class at the fitness center twice. The yoga instructor worked with our varying fitness levels and made the class fun. The pool bartender "Bird" went out of his way to make our experience comfortable. When we forgot our sunscreen he had some readily available and kept us informed about the movies shown by the pool. Additionally, he makes a wonderful mojito. He anticipated our needs before we did. We took a cooking class at the resort and had a blast! Concierge services arranged tours and there was a taxi stand nearby for those who wished to go further afield. We will be back.

Very enjoyable trip. My husband and I went for the trip and enjoyed it. We could also imagine our kids enjoying the pool if they were here. Great cleanliness, prompt service, friendly staff. Only you need your own transport, e.g. own rented car if you wish to explore the other beaches, famous local restaurants or towns. The stuff at the nearby Turtle Village is quite expensive compared to downtown.

01/13/16 Callmehelen Terrigal, Australia
Just back from another 3D/2N stay at AVC Phuket Mai Khao. We were met with a huge warm welcome as return guests and so didn't have to waste any time in settling in to this beautiful resort. We stayed in a 2 bedroom villa with its own pool- privacy guaranteed! The villa, with its elegant and high quality furnishings, was very well maintained, spotlessly clean and well equipped for a very comfortable stay. The staff, as we found on previous visit, were very friendly, efficient and most obliging- nothing was too much trouble. The location of the resort is ideal - so convenient as it is only a 20 minute 'easy drive' from the airport. Transfer is quick and hassle free. Breakfast in the restaurant is superb, so too are the pizzas and snacks by the pool. Happy hour/s from 4-6pm is a great way to finish the day by the pool! Prices are very reasonable and kids are well catered for. Kids Club provides lots of activities to keep the kids busy, along with a Climbing Wall for the bit bigger kids! A great place for a quick and easy relaxing break - with absolutely nothing to worry about as the staff remembers any prerequisites and pre-empts any new ones!!

01/13/16 stsoo668 Phuket
When we reached the airport arrival hall, we were able to easily locate the staff who led us to the pick-up driver for our brief journey to the resort, which was pleasant. The service at the lobby was excellent and not time consuming. When we saw our room we were pleasantly surprised on the decorations, especially the bathroom which was luxurious. The facilities, especially the pool was beautiful in the evenings. The breakfast spread was delicious and have lots of variety. However, there's a minor problem with the shower heater which was slow to heat up. We strongly recommend this beautiful resort to others!

We got the one bedroom apartment suite on the 6th floor for a 4 days 3 nights stay courtesy of Maybank. Room was huge with washing machine and dryer and full set of cooking utensils. Breakfast was lovely and the gym was great. quite a number of activities here and the pool was a bit small during peak hours. you can rent a bike foc and ride to ard. There are a couple of shops nearby "turtle island" with some restaurants and also a mini mart(expensive prices). Pls take higher floows facing the pool for better view.

"Good place to rest and re-energize (before holiday crowds arrive)"
01/12/16 PAGbeach2 St. Pete Beach, Florida
Being half way through a 30-day trip with bustling Tokyo and Bangkok behind us, we were ready to rest and re-energize. We stayed for 5 nights in a 1 bedroom, pool-facing suite which was very quiet, private, and had all the comforts of a modern apartment. We were on a high up floor and had a great view of the property and evening sunsets (you can't see the beach from the property). The king bed was comfy, and the large bathroom with soaking tub, 2 vanities, and lighted make-up mirror were very nice to have. The kitchen was well equipped and we enjoyed coffee, leisurely breakfasts, and snacks on the big balcony or lounging inside, otherwise we didn't do much cooking. We bought basic groceries at the little market in Turtle Village across the street. It was a few weeks before the holiday rush, so we totally enjoyed the quiet and peacefulness of the property. No crowds in the pool or restaurants.The suite and the property were very clean and the staff were very nice. Happy hour at the swim-up pool bar was enjoyable. We ate on property in the restaurant and pizza bar a few times and they were good. The Thai Express restaurant in Turtle Village was good and well priced. As others have mentioned, it's a short walk to the beach, which is peaceful and clean, but the water is very rough and there are no chairs, lounges, or shade available. Since we live at the beach, this was not an important feature for us, but others should take note. We had pre-booked a couple excursions directly with the operators that included hotel pick-ups which was important because the of the property's remote location. Because our main goal was to rest, this was not an issue, but others may be looking for easier access to food/activity/entertainment choices. This is a comfortable sized resort, not too big or small, but I can imagine it getting very crowded during the winter and holiday seasons with families. As a couple, we were fortunate to enjoy the "calm before the storm."

"Love it!"
01/10/16 Twisted_Travelholic Taguig City, Philippines
We got the two-bedroom pool suite and it was just perfect. The kids love that they have their own room and their own bathroom and their own pool. Plus, we get easy access to the main pool from our backyard. The room is huge and nicely furnished. It comes with a fully-equipped kitchen and laundry. They have a swim up bar in the pool and they have huge doughnut floaties which the kids absolutely love. Breakfast is good and the spread is ample. The resort is near the airport but far from Phuket beach.

"Fantastic Family Location in Paradise"
01/10/16 KiwiGuyInDubai Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Our family of 4 (with two kids aged 3 and 5) had 10 days here and loved every second of our stay! The property is luxurious and the rooms beautifully designed and appointed. The restaurant options great and well priced and the kids club, staff and activities are excellent. The beach is just a 5 minute walk over the road and is beautiful. The staff are friendly and excellent to deal with (the Management even more so - so professional and welcoming). They made us feel like VVIPs (even with two young kids). Can't speak highly enough about this place. Located in the north of Phuket, it is a little removed from some of the typical tourist attractions down south of the Island, however taxi's or car hire overcome this easily. We tried both options and have to say that if you have driven in crowded streets before (with lots of mopeds), a hire car for a few days is sooo much fun and completely opens up the island. We loved it and will be back asap!
