Anantara Lawana in Koh Samui was named Asia’s Most Romantic Resort, Anantara Hua Hin was awarded Asia’s Leading Green Resort, and Anantara Bangkok Sathorn was named as Thailand’s Leading Lifestyle Hotel. In addition, Mr. William E. Heinecke, Chairman and Chief Executive of Minor Hotel Group, Anantara’s owning company, was honoured as Asia’s Leading Travel Personality.

The prestigious awards ceremony was attended by His Highness Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Maktoum and was hosted at Anantara Dubai The Palm Resort & Spa, the most recent addition to the Anantara fold, which opened in September marking the upscale Asian operator’s first opening in Dubai. Bill Heinecke was also present at the ceremony to accept his honorary Asia’s Leading Travel Personality award, recognising him as the driving force behind the leading global brands under the Minor Group umbrella, including Minor Hotel Group.

Named as ‘Asia’s Most Romantic Resort’, Anantara Lawana Resort & Spa Samui is nestled on the quiet, pristine northern end of Chaweng Beach, one of Koh Samui’s most famous and longest beaches. Modern luxury in the style of the island’s original Chinese merchant settlers, the resort offers 122 spacious guest rooms and pool villas. Leisure facilities include a beachside infinity pool, an award-winning Anantara Spa, a fitness centre, whilst its exquisite restaurants include beachside Ocean Kiss and Tree Tops restaurant, the most romantic and exclusive dining journeys within the resort. For a dream evening, the resort offers Dining by Design that gives guests the opportunity to dine in blissful privacy anywhere in the resort with a menu custom-designed in discussion with a personal chef.

With its 14 acres of luxuriantly landscaped gardens and lagoon pools, Anantara Hua Hin Resort & Spa has received ‘Asia’s Leading Green Resort’. Echoing the design of an ancient Thai village, the resort features 187 garden and sea-view guest rooms and suites, plus a range of facilities and activities to suite every traveller, including meeting facilities, seven restaurants and bars, an award-winning Anantara Spa, a fitness centre, tennis courts and two infinity-edge pools. Its renowned tropical gardens were the creation of globally acclaimed landscape designer Bill Bensley who describes the results as “biologically interesting by making five distinct sub-gardens; the white garden, the heliconia garden, the red garden, the palm garden and the yellow garden”.

Providing the perfect urban sanctuary for both leisure and business travellers, Anantara Bangkok Sathorn has been named as ‘Thailand’s Leading Lifestyle Hotel’.
