“Amazing Honeymoon”
Reviewed 18 September 2012

We spent the second week of our honeymoon in this idyllic paradise, it was amazing! We stayed in one of the Lagoon Pool Villas and these were just perfect, they are private and out of the way, no one can walk past your room and see in, a private pool which is blissful in the early evening and the in room entertainment was brilliant, a few nights we just ordered room service and enjoyed the benefits of Apple TV! The room itself was lovely, nice big comfortable bed, well stocked mini bar, attractively designed, there isn’t one complaint. The staff are incredibly friendly without being overbearing, and the service is excellent. The hotel restaurant is great, and with the added bonus of dining on the sand! The beach is amazing, white sand and warm crystal clear sea water, just what you would expect from a paradise island. We would recommend taking the short walk down the road to visit the restaurant ‘Better Than Sex’ the food is amazing and such good value. We made a few trips to the spa during our stay and I would definitely recommend it, the place is beautiful and the spa menu is exceptional. On our last night we had a dinner on the beach experience and couldn’t have asked for anymore. This is by far the nicest hotel we have ever stayed in and are hoping to return in the next 12months, I couldn’t recommend it more. To sum up in one word – Perfect.

Room Tip: Logoon Pool Villas are luxurious but more private that the Ocean Front rooms.

Again we face the dilemma of telling the world about this perfect slice of paradise & the consequent increase in demand & its obvious flow through effect.
This is our second visit to Rasananda in 12 months which speaks for itself. The location is what you would expect from the "dream" post card beach resort surrounded by a mountainous backdrop of tropical rain forest & coconut palms. Unlike many of the beaches in Thailand which can be sludgy this beach is sandy & beautiful for swimming or just walking in the water.
What makes this relatively boutiquey resort special are the staff. Fon, Tua, Noi & Julia and all of them are just plain happy people who love what they do and are proud of their resort. The GM, Mark is a "hands on" guy who is always ready to get involved & help you with any issues...something not that common in most resorts.
The little village behind the resort has recently undergone some roadworks & building refurbishment which has really given the whole area a wonderful aura.
The rooms are relatively large and all are close to the beach with Apple TV. Need to have the Mosquito coils lit at 4 PM daily should be a staff task.
As this was our second time in a short period we were able to compare the food with our first visit for the resort & the restaurants in the village. The resort breakfast this time was disappointing. Previously we had an "a la carte" breakfast menu which included freshly prepared Asian & non Asian food. The buffet was also previously more comprehensive with an excellent fruit selection. This time the food was cold, the buffet selection considerably less & the wonderful a la carte choices significantly diminished. I raised this with the GM & he advised that a proposal was going to the owners to bring new food infrastructure in which would keep the food hot. Also the new chef had only been there for a month and was still acclimatising himself with the system. We had stayed the previous week at Zazen on Samui & the breakfast there was superb.
The two restaurants which we thought were very good last year & had a high Trip Advisor rating ( Better than Sex & Luna ) were both dissapointing & no longer worthy of a high recommendation. The Bamboo Hut was excellent as it was last year. The food at Jips was also very good but the waiting time too long as it was last year. ( I had too many cold beers waiting !!)
So.. overall? We'll be back for certain. A beautiful place with wonderful people. Its for adults. Not suitable for kids, as there is no infrastructure. Considerable thought needs to go into the food side of things both at the resort & in the village.
Thanks to all of the staff for another great stay. Chris & Jane Taylor Sydney, Australia

Well appointed rooms and villas, lovely location and stylish public areas (restaurant, pool, bar etc) but what sets this hotel apart is the excellent, friendly service from the staff. They are invisible until you have a vague thought that you might need something and then they magically appear with a smile. The very approachable manager and the hard-working executive team (Head Chef, 'wine guru' ) are always around keeping things on track. I won't reiterate others descriptions of rooms etc (see photos) but I would make the point that when you consider the hotel's overheads, the services aren't really overpriced and certainly no more expensive than London. Massage is cheaper in the village but Rasanada's spa is an architect-designed Xanadu-esque paradise, not a bamboo hut full of mosquitoes. The same goes for food and drink: the village is cheaper but the value-added at the hotel (really talented band at BBQ and great dancers at Thai buffet night) makes it worth it. We ate in the village on alternative nights and found a good balance. We will be going back as soon as we can.

Room Tip: Do get the hotel's speedboat; it's much less hassle and a dramatic arrival too. The sea-vie...

We were in desperate need of time out and Anantara provided the most perfect place to unwind and relax. This is the only resort we have been to that matches the advertising and even surpassed our expectations. The accommodation is nothing short of spectacular and our garden pool room provided the privacy and peace and quiet we wanted. The public areas of pool, bar and restaurant on the beach just reinforced the relaxed atmosphere of this 6 star resort. Dining shoeless with your toes in the sand whilst eating the most decadent food was a real pleasure. Nui in the restaurant should be classified as a natural treasure but all the staff really make you feel special and nothing is too much trouble. If even the tinest thing is not right the manager immediately gets it fixed. One more day of sheer bliss but I have no doubt this is one destination we will return to

We spent 3 nights there in May and it was an amazing experience. The service is perfect, we were upgraded to a sea-view room with a private pool on our balcony. We even had a spot on the beach reserved just for us!
The breakfast is also great with plenty of choice. The room was big with a very beautiful decoration and very cosy. There was even some complimentary alcohol for the guests! What we appreciated particularly were the little attentions to the guests, little desert left in your room when you come back at night, little letter to your attention. All the little things that make the difference.
The only negative point for me was the additional services. They were completely overpriced. We asked for a pickup at the pier and were told that it was 3'000 THB!!! You would expect in this category of hotel that the pickup is offered.
