Anantara Bophut Resort & Spa
Serene Accommodation in Koh Samui
If there’s one word that encapsulates Anantara Bophut Resort & Spa on Koh Samui it would be ‘serene’. The lobby itself has quasi-Arabian lines and is a fitting introduction to what lies ahead in the hotel. Large ceiling fans waft lazily above a central seating bench with large wooden chairs to the sides.
An extremely well-appointed library (something that Anantara excels at) stands opposite reception while two dining areas lead off into the resort’s lush Bill Bensley-designed gardens.
Anantara Bophut Resort & Spa offers four types of accommodation; Deluxe, Deluxe Terrace, Deluxe Seaview and Anantara Suites.
Each room type is spacious and features luxuries and facilities with an attention to detail that this hotel chain is famous for, such as complimentary toiletries, excellent bedding, good communication aids, a well-equipped mini-bar, quality complimentary tea and coffee-making facilities, both air conditioning and overhead fans, atmospheric lighting, comfortable furniture and great storage space.
The most outstanding facility at this Anantara resort is its spa. This award-winning centre of relaxation and health is surrounded by slate and bamboo walls and spans over 3,000sqm in verdant, peaceful grounds. You’re never far from running water here and the sound of it provides a pleasant backdrop for the Ayurvedic treatments on offer.
Open from 10:00 – 22:00, guests can enjoy a wide range of treatments in glass-walled, air-conditioned rooms with bamboo-lined exterior walls, private al-fresco soaking tubs, world-class therapists, and a full range of award-winning Elemis spa products. The spa at Anantara Bophut Resort is the jewel in the resort’s crown.
Other facilities include four distinctive food and beverage outlets, an especially noteworthy breakfast buffet rich in health-conscious choices, a 30-metre shoreline infinity pool, a library packed with classics and modern editions in several languages as well as high-speed internet access, several choices of business meeting arrangements, wedding packages, childcare services, a tennis court, Thai cooking classes, beach yoga and reiki, water sports facilities including sailing, windsurfing and snorkelling and a modern fitness centre.
Anantara Bophut Resort & Spa is outstanding in several areas. As mentioned, the spa has deservedly won several awards, the resort’s cuisine is in extremely able hands, the décor is simply gorgeous and its location on Bophut Beach is nothing short of idyllic. This five-star property’s reputation precedes it and justifiably so. There is no corporate coldness here and the heady mix of Thai hospitality with top-rate execution results in a resort that manages a symbiosis of excellent organisation and design along with a downright homely feel.
