Great luxury with a poor beach
The hotel and staff are absolutely wonderful here and so attentive to our every need. However, I think it is important for guests to know that the beach view is not pristine. There are huge sandbags that stretch along the shore a few meters out into the water that are not attractive at all. If you want to mostly stay beside the beautiful pool it works well. But if you are looking for a picturesque beach scene, you won't find it here.

Lower quality Anantara resort
Having visited other Anantara resorts I was surprisingly disappointed with the standard and maintenance of the hotel and the facilities. Further the description of the villa with a swimming pool was rather misleading as in fact it was no more than a jacuzzi. The jacuzzi itself was poorly maintained with loose tiles and exposed electric cables. The breakfast buffet was acceptable, however we found the menu in general to be expensive, and the meals we had were at best average. The staff was friendly and helpful however this could not compensate for the low overall standard of this Anantara resort.

Relaxed place! Away from the bling.
It is a very calm & relaxed place unlike Dubai which has so much bling. Also the safari is a must. Price is on the higher side for what you get.

Top-notch service!
This was our second visit, and everything is just as good as we had remembered it. The best part about this resort is the service. In our opinion, it rates among the best we have ever seen anywhere in the world in terms of service.
