Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is not only a family summer trip but more than everything a return "home" after the pandemic period: and it couldn't have been more perfect under any point of view. All the staff sincerely took care of us in a kind, smiling, sweet way anytime making us for real feeling like home. A special home, surrounded by a lush tropical garden and amazing people. The cottage is cozy and comfortable, any common space clean and well kept, the beach offer peaceful moments during the day or as soon as the evening arrives maybe sipping a good cocktail or having the most romantic dinner. Food is lovely and always served with the sweetest smile offered any time from Khun Lek, but I would say anytime spent at Anavana is accompanied by the kindest smile of each person working there to make your stay really unforgettable. We couldn't be more grateful for a so wonderful summer holiday

Hotel's Favourite
We had previously been to what was called "Poppies" many times and were really upset when we heard it was closing. Then to hear that it opened up as "Anavana" we were delighted and stayed for 10 days and we were not disappointed. Glad they decided to keep as it was with all the special treats. Quite a few of the "Poppies Staff" were still there which makes this place extra special with them. We call it our paradise and the welcome we received on arrival was very touching. Spotlessly clean everywhere and staff could not do enough for you. Breakfast is always outstanding. Best massage I every had. Already looking to book for 2024 - thank you everyone

We were there for the third time (twice during Poppies times) and are totally happy, that also as Anavana it is still the same great hotel as before. Very well-kept and beautiful hotel facility, great beach, great food and as before the friendliest and most attentive staff ever. We will definitely come back next year!

We have just stayed for a week at Anavana and have stayed there twice previously when it was known as Poppies, this time for my honeymoon. Once again it was absolutely fantastic, they have maintained a high standard for both the accommodation and the resort common areas. The staff are extremely friendly and nothing is too much trouble. I just love the rain forest feel of the grounds which is what I look for in a resort. I can't wait to go back, my absolute favourite resort.

The Anavana Beach Resort was amazing! We could hear the ocean waves crash from our cottage--it was really nice to be able to roll out of bed and onto a beach chair. The entire resort staff were really nice and very helpful. From giving us estimated song-thaew and taxi fares to various attractions to giving us lunch suggestions to helping to mail a postcard, they did everything to help make our stay enjoyable. Ame and her team were also very prompt in responding to all our emails and answering our questions as we were planning for our trip. The location of the resort on Chaweng Beach Road also meant that there were pharmacies, a 7-11 convenience store, souvenir shops, restaurants, and laundry service all within walking distance.

This hotel is truly a little gem. Set on the south of Chaweng Beach, it has a beautiful beach, great rooms and the best staff. Breakfast is very good (you have to try Pad Si Iew). The only thing that could be better is the coffee 😉. The villas are set in a beautiful garden. Eventhough it is on Vhaweng, it is really quiet.

Our family of four stayed three nights at the Anavana Beach Resort (formerly called Poppy’s) over New Year’s 2023/24 and had a wonderful experience! We would definitely return here without hesitation! The resort is immaculately maintained with beautiful tropical vegetation throughout the resort. Each cabana is tastefully decorated with a spacious bathroom and all the amenities you would expect from a luxury resort. An extra bed in the sitting area could accommodate a third person very comfortably. The beds are comfortable and the A/C strong. Mosquito screens on the windows are provided. When we found a small opening in the screen above the open-air bathroom, staff immediately responded to mend the tear. Very helpful and responsive service! We did not encounter many mosquitos during our stay and only got very few bites. The resort offers mosquito repellent, which we didn’t feel we needed to put on very often at all. While each bed offers four pillows, I would have loved different choices of firmness (they were all quite thick and firm). The beach in front of the resort is lovely, and the staff are very helpful and friendly in setting up beach chairs, towels, and serving drinks. Despite the resort being full over the holiday, we didn’t find the experience crowded at all. In fact, the small size of the resort (24 rooms) makes this feel very relaxed and exclusive. The staff at the Anavana were exceptionally helpful and kind. Ame, the manager makes a point of getting to know each of her guests personally and makes everyone feel welcome and valued. It feels like a family-run hotel in the best way possible with a personal touch to the experience. The waiters, especially Lek, were very professional, extremely hardworking and attentive. They even helped us with our dietary restrictions, provided really delicious gluten-free bread for breakfast and offered gluten-free modifications for the various dinner choices. We enjoyed the food so much we ate all our dinners at the resort. The New Year’s festivities featured a delicious multi-course meal. There was entertainment by a northern Thai group performing music and dancing, and later a fire dancer group on the beach performed an exhilarating show before the spectacular midnight fireworks along Chaweng Beach. Very memorable! The Anavana has 24 cabins all tucked away amid a park-like tropical setting with immaculately maintained walking paths, streams with koi and birds singing. We stayed in units 103 and 104 toward the beach and pool area. This location was wonderful as it made for easy access when going back and forth from the restaurant and beach to our room. There was a good mix of European, American and Asian guests. The many repeat guests are testimony to the lovely guest experience at this resort. We highly recommend the Anavana Beach Resort!

I have stayed at Anavana on numerous occasions, I keep going back because it is hands down the best resort on Chewang Beach. I love that it is set in the most glorious gardens, with beautiful Thai style individual cottages and the staff are next level fantastic, from Lek in the dining room who is such a sweetheart with impeccable service to Ame, Jimmy and Joy at the front desk who make you feel so very welcome and nothing is too much trouble. Anavana is a special place, it is right on the best beach in Koh Samui, it is boutique resort with old school service where you are a person not a number as can be the case in high end big resorts.
