"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.

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 class

"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.

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.)

"Very good for a family holiday"
07/31/15 G974 Milano
Spent a week with my family and found the hotel to be perfect for families. The pool is great, the kids club staff friendly and the restaurant good with an excellent value for money, and the apartments with kitchen perfect. The hotel is far from the centre of the island (45/60 minutes to Phuket Town), but this is not a big deal... You can use the beach at the sister property Anantara across the road, and the ocean is great. Overall, highly recommended.

07/30/15 wwingsze Hong Kong, China
We arrived in Phuket at around 230 am. Hotel promised to provide free transport but they missed our schedule. Finally they arranged a car for us and we checked in at 3:00am. What a surprise that they upgraded our room to 2 bedroom pool villa. When we opened our room door, we were all very excited and grateful to have this experience to enjoy in such a nice villa! Nice pool, spacious, well equipped kitchen and most importantly, comfortable beds for 4 of us! Breakfast has lots of variety but sometimes it was full of ppl, Do have an early breakfast if you wanna enjoy an quiet breakfast. We went to the Anantara villa to swim in pool and the beach nearby has a nice view but it has big waves, not suitable for swimming.

"Beautiful Resort Hotel"
07/30/15 Siew San L Johor Bahru, Malaysia
Beautiful resort hotel with a very relaxing feel. Hotel provides free bicycles for 4 hrs per day and we had a very good time exploring the surrounding area and resorts. Staff at the resort were all very friendly. However, the hotel is far from everything else on the island and only a handful of reputable restaurants around. I would suggest that you rent a car if staying here, which we were glad we did. The 1 bedroom and 2 bedroom suite that we had was very well equipped with many nice touches. The only thing that I'm a little annoyed with is that you have to sign in again for wifi every time you return.

"A quiet place to relax "
07/25/15 Sze H
I stay here for 5d4n. It's a 5 star resort with everything in 5 star. I really love the resort and its location where it skip away from the busy town unlike patong beach. You can have a sea side view if you stay in the apartment suites but it has to be top floor or 6th floor. You can even view the sun set by laying down on the day bed at the balcony like i do while having an ice cool beer. It's fantastic, my kids really love that moment. You dont need to stay in a pool villa facing seaside to view the sun set which is much costly but if you don't mind, that will be the added bonus. Bicycle renting is free for guest fir the first 4 hours which is more than enough if you were to cycle it's surrounding area. The pool area is big enough although it's not the olympic size. Child pool is available with a roof top where that will keep the kids under the sun during the sunny day. The chaam restaurant which is the only restaurant in the resort serves buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner but the price is the star. I will advise you to make an advance booking where you will get 50% discount for breakfast only. Childs below 4yo eats free. Breakfast price 8000bt per person. If you prefer to have a cheaper breakie than you will need to walk across the road to the turtle village where there is 2 shop open for breakfast which is cheaper and affordable. But the cheapest option is you buy the food from the turtle mart and cook it your self in your room as they have the full kitchen utilities for you. Yes, its a full set with electric stove,frying pan, spatula, plates, knife, fork & spoon, toaster,microwave, fridge with freezer plus the washing and drying machine. You will feel completely like you are at home. At the turtle village you can try the Thai express restaurant whicg is much economy and the taste is delicious too. I fond that its even better than the popular kan eang@pier and kin dee restaurant. If you want do dine in the area than you could try this kindee restaurant which is a 5minutes driving distance with free wifi. But since it's near to the stream and surrounded by natural tree, mosquitoes repellent is a must. Worth a try. A cab from the local taxi station cost bh5000-7000 for a return trip and they will wait for 3 hours. A bike selling the smoke chicken outside of the resort entrance is nice but inly available from 3pm-6pm The tv in the living hall comes with a smart tv and a rmvb or mkv usb reader. So if you have download some movies, remember to bring over tour usb n plug it there. In the master bedroom, the even have a blue ray dvd player and the lcd tv. A bath tub is available only in the master bedroom but without the jacuzzi function or else that will be 10/10. The only weak point in the bathroom is the exhaust fan whuch is not powerful enough to vacuum away the smell in minutes when you are answering a natural call. Lol. So you better close the toilet door while you are doing it or the person in the room will suffer. Lol The air condition in the rooms is superb with fast cooling speed where it will cool the area within minutes. Yes its true. Mosquitoes is every where especially if you are in a tropical country where the location is surrounded by trees. My advuse is close the balcony door at all time if staying with kids and if you prefer to have a natural air, you can just walk out to the balcony area yourself and lay down like a snake on the day bed while holding an ice cool beer. During night time, if you are walking along the corridor, becareful as it's quite dark when you are near the lift area and i dont know why the hotel management didn't notice this simole things. Every time, i will need to use my mobile phone as torch light when near the lift corridor. The management should look in to it. A walking distance of less than 30metres from the resort entrance, you will see the local taxi station, where you can booked day trip, taxi to outside reataurant or cab to the airport which is cheaper. But if you were to booked a day trip in advance, i will suggest you to surf the internet on google for this travel agency like I do. Src travel in phuket. Call Mr. Chai or whatsapp him. He is a nice guy. Overall good experience staying here and i will stay again. The only turn off at this area is lack of local shop. Although it's a relax resort but if you are staying too long, some times you will need simething to walk or shop around like the one you have in patong. Not really too many but at least something to shop beside the turtle village. The things and food in the turtle mart is very expensive like a butter will cost you 2100bt. Doesn't it sounds crazy but you got no choice. Although its a 5 star area but this price is 7 star. Lol.

"Relaxing but not much fun."
07/24/15 Holly C
Located in a quiet area where there isn't much to do / shop / eat nearby. Activities and services are rather expensive. Lacking low budget / free classes or activities to offer. Room is huge, well decorated and equipped. Breakfast is great. Not recommend BBQ buffet dinner. Not much choice of food and rather expensive. A la carte is a lot more interesting and value for money.

Our stay at Anantara vacation club was great. The service was outstanding. From the time we arrived until the time we left, the staff was very accommodating. We were offered breakfast at half price and we were so glad that we did. When our first outing was cancelled because of rain, Anantara arranged for us to go by taxi to Patong Beach. We were allowed to use some facilities at the Anantara Villas, which is very close to AVC. The rooms were so beautiful. We had a two bedroom suite. I would definitely stay at AVC again. The location is far away from most tours, but it's worth it.

"Good place to unwind but mind the mosquitoes"
07/23/15 ameashlim Petaling Jaya, Malaysia
The location is good if your intention is to unwind at the resort only. A handful of non-local eateries are available across the road. If you want local flavours, you would have to go into Phuket Town or Patong Beach area. That would take an hour's journey each way. Bring mosquito repellent/mosquito patches as what's provided by the establishment isn't sufficient, especially if you/your family members are prone to having mosquitoes biting them.

The private pool villa were superb with the kitchen facilities and utensil provided! The private pool were big enough and the bathroom area with outdoor shower were fantastic! The only thing is the location of the property is quite far away from patong and city! If shuttle service is provided then would be 100% perfect!
