Anantara is a great brand with a lovely portfolio mainly in South East Asia. My experiences with the brand so far have all been very impressive, although some are better than others. Anantara Phuket Villas deserves to be ranked among their best properties. I had a wonderful experience from beginning to the end.
The resort has 83 villas total with own private swimming pool as the unique feature. The design is very similar to what I’ve seen in the Banyan Tree resorts I’ve stayed and I also met a General Manager once that said Anantara was a copy of Banyan Tree. The service was great a long way, my only problem was the size of the resort with 83 villas which is a bit too big to deliver personalized service. On the other hand, some couples will stay the entire time in their villas meaning the resort won’t feel to crowded.
The restaurant is focused on fish and is very good, but however not up to the standard of the rest of the resort. Food and restaurant service was better in other resorts I’ve been in Phuket.
Generally the resort is close to being fantastic. The stay ended with a lovely breakfast which had great sushi items and the bottom line is that this is a safe choice and one of Phuket’s very best properties.
My opinion: Great+ experience.
