This has to be one of Samui’s most atmospheric resorts, starting from its grand entrance and high-ceilinged lobby. Generous-sized rooms emphasize classy Thai style décor that make use of exquisite local textiles; each has a private balcony with loungers overlooking the garden or beach. Some of the most attractive features of the resort are the free-form infinity pool with views of nearby Ko Phang Ngan, and the Italian restaurant that enjoys lovely views across to the bay. Anantara provides yoga sessions, Thai cooking classes, wine appreciation instruction, fruit carving lessons, kids’ activities, and superb spa therapies. Service is on a par with what you’d find at costlier resorts, though it’s not as formal. Anantra is also just a short walk from Fisherman’s Village where there are plenty of shops, bars, and restaurants.
